Damson Ghyll is situated at Latterhead, Loweswater in the Vale of Lorton which is in the secluded northwest part of the Lake District Nationa Park and is an ideal base for walking, cycling and touring. The towns of Cockermouth (Wordsworth’s birthplace) and Keswick are nearby. Latterhead is a small hamlet enclosed by Low Fell (see photo above) on one side and by the higher mountains of Whiteside and Grasmoor on the other.


There are 3 lakes within easy reach of Latterhead – Loweswater itself, Crummock Water with its backdrop of Mellbreak and Grasmoor; and Buttermere surrounded by its own set of fells – Red Pike, High Stile, High Crag, Haystacks, Fleetwith Pike, Hindscarth and Robinson. The Vale of Lorton can be easily accessed over any of several beautiful passes – Whinlatter, Newlands or Honister from Borrowdale or simply off the A66 from Cockermouth. For cyclists, the Coast to Coast (C2C) route passes the front gate.

Damson Ghyll, Latterhead, Loweswater, Cockermouth, Cumbria CA13 0RR.
