Lowthwaite B&B



How to check availability and book

Checking availability and booking can be done online, but if you have any questions we are happy to answer them either by:

Phone at 017684 82343. We are home most of the time, but if we don't answer, please leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

By email at info@lowthwaiteullswater.com, where again we will get back to you as soon as we can.

We accept payment by cash, debit, and most credit cards (not American Express or Diners). We prefer debit cards, since we are trying to avoid charging a fee for credit cards.

Payment by bank transfer is also possible, details will be sent before arrival.

Consideration in relation to COVID19

In recognition of the nervousness potential guests may feel about commiting to specific dates, we have amended our booking procedures.

We will not take any deposits for new bookings before arrival (usually 30% and non-refundable).

Free cancellation is possible for all new bookings, provided that seven full days notice is given before arrival. Cancellations within the seven day period are subject to a charge of 50% of the full value of the reservation as stated in our booking confirmation.

Minimum stay

For most weekend and school holiday times we will normally only accept two night stays, although the odd one night stay will still be available, simply because of the booking pattern. Occasionally there will also be a two night requirement at other times. This is clearly marked on our online booking system, or you can of course just call or email us to check.

We hope to see you in Matterdale!

Longer stay discount

If you stay for 4 nights or more we give 10% discount. This is automatically shown when booking online.


We have suspended our usual deposit (normally 30% non-refundable of the total value of the booking) due to the uncertainty with COVID19. This will be reviewed, when the COVID19 situation improves.


Rooms cancelled within seven days of arrival have a total cancellation charge of 50% (including deposit already paid) of the full value of the booking.
