The Kirkstile Inn at Loweswater is renowned throughout the Lakes for the quality of its food and ales. This 400-year-old pub has excellent food, open fires and its own brewery, and has been awarded the CAMRA Pub of the Year for West Cumbria and Western Lake District.

Downstairs, the spacious hallway leads to two double bedrooms, one twin bedroom, a bunk bedroom, a bathroom and an additional toilet. The bedrooms each have their own basin (with the exception of the bunk bedroom).

Upstairs is a further bedroom with a double bed and en-suite shower room. There is also an additional twin bedroom plus a bathroom with separate shower.

The property also has  games room with a pool table and table football.

The garden is large with a big chestnut tree to provide some shade in the summer and conkers in the autumn.

There are many small nooks and crannies and plenty of outdoor furniture to help you enjoy the beauty of it all.

A great house which worked really well for a group of 11 people. Warm, comfortable and cosy. Could do with another bathroom and better cleaning regime.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable time - a very lazy Christmas for a large family group. The only real downside of the property is that the kitchen is not of sufficient size for a party of 12.

Excellent house with plenty space and great facilities. Upside down layout a bit quirky and kitchen not the biggest however we ate out or outside most nights. Garden lovely and kids played in it for hours on end. Plenty exploring options in the area, several lakes 15 minutes by car and multiple hill runs possible from house.

Really comfortable house, well equipped. We had a great stay there. Luckily in March we had a sunny weekend and found it hard to leave the garden. With the stream running through,space for kids and dogs to run around, it really was a very relaxing and enjoyable stay.
