- Lowick, EnglandCoopers Cottage is the perfect terraced holiday home for visiting the Lakes. It is perfectly situated near to the main road for getting out and about but far enough away that you hear nothing but the wind in the trees and the birds singing. The cottage has been beautifully restored to a good standard making your stay comfortable. With the multi-fuel burner in the living area and the underfloor heating, you can be toasty warm on those cold winters’ evenings and in the summer you can sit out on the patio offering generous views and access to the paddock. The cottage was once a thriving gunpowder works dating back to 1798 and part of Low Wood Mill gunpowder works located on the estuary with access to the sea, now only the cottages and the clock tower survives today as a reminder of the past.

- Lowick, EnglandWest Cinder Hill is nestled away in the tiny village of Finsthwaite. It has the timeless quality of a place where very little has changed in a century. Enjoy the sound of owls by night from the nearby woods, and by day the gentle sound of sheep and hens. A local beauty spot is High Dam within walking distance and at the end of the village. This small man-made lake is perfect for picnics and allows access onto the fells with fabulous walks and views across to the Langdales and to the Coniston Range of fells. High Dam provided water for the old Bobbin Mill, now a tourist attraction in the village, but once providing employment to 250 men and boys.
West Cinder Hill, it is rumoured, once was the centre of the local rhubarb trade. A large garden remains, on two levels, providing a perfect sanctuary and wonderful views across the valley. Converted from a barn in the 1970s, it has been recently refurbished to a high standard and is the perfect springboard for visiting central and south west Lakes. A steamer calls just a mile or two away, on the shore of Lake Windermere, which takes you to Bowness/Windermere town and further to Ambleside. Adjacent to the jetty is an aquarium, and a short distance away is an impressive motor museum. There is also a steam railway running the short distance from Lake Windermere to Haverthwaite.
