About Loweswater 

Loweswater, near Cockermouth is one of the smaller lakes in the English Lake District with the village of Loweswater situated at its foot.

The immediate vicinity of Loweswater is very genteel and consists mainly of rolling hills, in contrast to the rocky mountains found elsewhere in the Lake District (though Mellbreak, part of the Loweswater Fells, is steep and craggy).

Loweswater remains relatively untouched by tourism, and is much quieter than the neighbouring lakes, Buttermere and Crummock Water.

There is, however, a popular lakeside path, which goes right round the lake and on the south side is Holme Wood, a small forest which contains Holme Force, a waterfall of great beauty.

Every year Loweswater is home to the Loweswater show, which features traditional Cumbrian sports and has competitions for farmers' produce.
