Loweswater is a peaceful lake that is often bypassed. At approximately 1 mile in length, 1/2 mile wide and 60 feet deep, it provides an excellent lake circuit for walkers. The lake completes a row of three lakes. These include Buttermere and Crummock Water. This picturesque lake is a welcome addition to any western Lake District itinerary. A circular walk means visitors can enjoy views across the water. Alternatively, looking up at the surrounding fells from any point along its shoreline.

Loweswater is unique within the Lake District. Indeed, it is the only lake that drains towards the center of Lakeland. Red squirrels can be found in the locality. The lake is owned by the National Trust.
