High Thrushbank enjoys a truly fabulous setting a ¼ of a mile from Loweswater, with a view of the lake, forest and fells beyond. This 18th-century, traditional character cottage has been renovated to be as eco friendly as possible. It is fully double glazed and insulated, and hot water and heating are primarily by solar panels and air heat source pump, with oil boiler and electricity as a back up. It is perfect for two or three families or groups of walkers on holiday together. It has five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a cosy sitting room and a spacious living/dining room with large dining table and comfortable seating areas. The very large and beautiful garden with lawn, shrubs, trees, garden furniture and beautiful views is often visited by red squirrels and a vast array of bird life. There is something for everyone in the area, cycling, rock climbing, fishing, low level walking round the lake or more energetic fell walking. The award-winning Kirkstile Inn is within 10 minutes’ walking distance and is renowned for excellent home cooked food and its own brewery. Crummock Water and Buttermere are both nearby and the extensive Cumbrian coast is only a 20-minute drive away.

Ideal place for a family holiday. Plenty of room for 6 adults and 5 children. Kitchen was well supplied with equipment, crockery and glasses. Garden was large and had beautiful views. Nearest reasonable food shops in Cockermouth 20 minutes drive away.

High Thrushbank provided everything our three generation family holiday could ask for and was very much enjoyed. The garden and the views are great, especially appreciated as we were there in glorious summer weather. Many outdoor activities in the surrounding area were enjoyed, including lake swimming. Catering needs planning in advance as it is a car journey to shops, but that can be part of an enjoyable expedition too. We appreciated the attention given to red squirrel conservation, and saw just one in the garden during our week - maybe summer and hot weather aren't their favourite times to be on view.

Great location and the cottage has plenty of space to relax and have fun. Definitely one of my favourite holidays and will definitely be returning.
