Loweswater is the end of a chain of three lakes which also includes Crummock Water and Buttermere. Most of the lakeshore is accessible with the road running along one edge. On the opposite side is a mixed woodland containing deer, red squirrels, woodpeckers and a waterfall accessed by a selection of woodland pathways leading to a bothy by the lakeside. Loweswater is surrounded by accessible fells that give great views of the upper valley. It can be approached either from Cockermouth through the valley of Lorton, or from the Whitehaven side through various small villages such as Lamplugh, or Ullock and Mockerkin.
Loweswater village lies in the shadow of Mellbreak a large saddle-topped mountain that gives a birds eye view of both Loweswater lake and Crummock water.
