This spacious ground floor apartment has been converted from part of a grand, stone-built cottage dating back to the 1600s and is perfect for a country retreat in Loweswater. Lorna’s at The Grange is newly listed for 2019 and features a comfortable double bedroom which has been tastefully decorated with neutral décor and complemented with high quality furnishings. Just along the hall is a shower room and a spacious kitchen/dining room. The living room with flatscreen TV completes the picture. This apartment is set within mature landscaped grounds and offers superb views across the countryside towards Loweswater. You can catch a glimpse of the lake from the grounds and where better to stay than this virtually unspoilt part of The Lake District National Park.
The properties are located just 600 yards from the lake and are accessed along a quiet country lane. Loweswater is one of the smallest lakes in the Lake District with the village of Loweswater being set on the banks of the lake itself. Nestled in a wooded valley in The Vale of Lorton, it is the first link in a chain of lakes including Crummock Water and Buttermere. If you like to explore and enjoy walking, hiking, climbing or cycling, you have a vast expanse of natural Lakeland scenery to explore, including many of the 214 Wainwright peaks within easy reach. Some of the lower fells include Low Fell, Blake Fell and Gravel Fell to the west, with Mellbreak to the south and to the east. There are some more challenging routes around Grasmoor at 2,795ft. The area boasts beautiful flora and fauna as well as an abundance of wildlife including buzzards, kestrels, ospreys and red squirrels. A trip to Loweswater wouldn’t be the same without a trip to the local hostelry, 2 miles, famous for its great food and award winning beer, ’Loweswater Gold’.
