Extra Amenities

Newly listed in 2018 and refurbished with great thought and attention to detail, The Old Post Office, Gillerthwaite is situated in the peaceful village of Loweswater. This excellent property has been lovingly renovated and extended to turn what was the original village post office into a memorable home for your next Lake District holiday, surrounded by some of the most breathtaking views the National Park has to offer.
Upstairs you’ll find two very well-furnished double bedrooms, and a beautiful family bathroom with bath, separate shower cubicle and underfloor heating. Each room has gorgeous views. Downstairs you’ll find the real heartbeat of this house with a spacious open plan kitchen, dining room and living room, which benefit from lots of natural daylight thanks to the bi-folding doors that lead out to the garden and patio, as well as from the stunning picture window with its electrically operated curtains. Or if you just want to retire for a snooze after a long day on the fells the property also features a sitting room, complete with a wood burner for those cosy nights by the fire.

There is a twin bedroom also on the ground floor of the property. The owners have really gone to town to ensure guest experience and comfort is at the top of their agenda, and as soon as you arrive at The Old Post Office, Gillerthwaite, you’ll know you’ve made a great choice. The property features ample parking and a large enclosed garden with a lawn and patio, as well as a summerhouse, and garden furniture for soaking up the sun from all sides.
Situated within the Lake District National Park, Loweswater village is located between two beautiful lakes, Loweswater and Crummock Water, both about 1 mile away. The smaller of the two lakes, Loweswater, offers a short walking route around the lake of about 3 miles, just enough to work off that big breakfast and spot the odd red squirrel or two, which are indigenous to the area. You’re also just a 350-yard walk from one of the most famous pub/restaurants in this part of the world. Visitors come from miles around to eat and drink at the inn and you have it almost on your doorstep! Brewing the multi award-winning Loweswater Gold, its a must try to add to your holiday experience list.

As you go further down the valley towards Buttermere and Borrowdale you are surrounded by some fantastic walking and cycling routes as well as breathtaking scenery. You have great access to many adventurous fells including Mellbreak and Blake Fell, or if you prefer more of a challenge, Robinson, High Stile, Dale Head and Grasmoor ranging from 2418-2795ft are all within a few miles radius. For shopping and dining you are just 7 miles from the popular town of Cockermouth, the birthplace of William Wordsworth, and if you fancy a trip to Keswick with an abundance of fine dining, bars, shops and restaurants as well as a number of excellent tourist attractions, its just a 10-mile drive over the Whinlatter Pass. Whether you like walking, climbing, cycling, sightseeing, shopping, or simply doing nothing, you can be sure that The Old Post Office, Gillerthwaite is one not to be missed. Beach 11 miles.
