Tom and Totty Lowther are the MOST gracious and accommodating hosts. Their house is splendid and elegant yet FAR from stuffy or pretentious. The grounds -- indeed the entire countryside -- are tranquil and offer some beautifully dramatic scenery. Castles, mountains, and the moors offer a dramatic setting for the cast of characters played by fell ponies, foxes, and the...

Two night stay for a local wedding and were delighted by the spacious bedroom and ensuit plus the eclectic and interesting mix of art, lighting and old paraphernalia from Lowther castle. Excellent breakfasts, attentive and thoughtful hosts and no hint of limited room access!

Lovely farm house. Beautiful amazing room. Excellent tranquil location & delicious breakfast. Stayed in the really spacious Castle room suite with bathroom - see their website. BUT our delightful experience was shapely deflated as the hostess explained on the first afternoon as we returned from walking in the nearby village at 3:30pm that the B&B guests were not expected to...

The rides were fabulous; mainly off road riding, across the open fells with lots of opportunities...

I stayed here with my husband for two nights in August 2012. He booked it as a wonderful surprise after seeing it in an article in The Independant on the top 50 B & B's. The house is an eclectic mix of farmhouse and stately home twist. This is a wonderful place, totally different to any other B&B we've stayed...

We stayed last weekend and had a wonderful time, the host Victoria is charming and the rooms are wonderful. A real taste of a country house with a flavour of a boutique hotel. Stylish and individual. We had requested dinner and it didn't disappoint, we enjoyed an excellent three course dinner. Lots to do close by including the Lowther Castle...

You have to go here just to see the bathroom in the castle bedroom - it just reminds me of something out of cleopatra. It cot us £100 for the night but was excellent value for money considering the unique rooms. The views from the hotel are amazing and so scenic. Victoria was very nice and we were never short...

“if the main Castle room is free - ask for this as it has a huge bathroom and the decor is amazing, the other rooms are also lovely though. Due to the house location, its a very tranquil place.”
