The hamlets of Lowick Green and Lowick Bridge sit at the southern most tip of Coniston Water in an area of beautiful open countryside. This is rural Cumbria at its best, Lowick being a fine example of a village, hosting an annual agricultural show every September, to include Cumberland wrestling, fell running and hound trails. Ulverston, home to Stan Laurel, is a mere seven miles away to the south with Coniston itself only 15 minutes drive. The cottage is located across the road from the Farmers Arms, a 14th Century coaching Inn, offering fine food and a real country pub atmosphere with local ales and open fires. Thorn Cottage dates back to the 1800s, and is a substantial property of great character. Spacious and comfortable, Thorn Cottage is an ideal venue for a family get together, whatever time of the year and offers excellent value for money when sharing the cost - 8 adults can holiday together in the low season from as little as £10 per person per night. Please note that due to its age, the house does have a number of small steps here and there and you should be careful to either ’bend or bump’.
