    “When we arrived the first thing we noticed was that each cottage had Halloween pumpkins outside, inside the theme continued with Halloween decorations which was brilliant for my granddaughter.”

    The lights had been put on for our arrival as it was dark on arrival. On the table there were eggs, cake, tea, coffee and even dog biscuits, milk was in the fridge, the thought that had gone into those extras was lovely. In the morning we noticed that all cottages had bird feeders which allowed us to watch the many different birds close up, and then we noticed that a conker was placed on the windowsill and was thrilled when a red squirrel came and sat at the window, which it did every morning ...

Everything we needed was there, it was spotlessly clean and we would definitely book again. Thankyou for a lovely holiday.

Bassenthwaite 1 mile. A mile out of Bassenthwaite village and around 2 miles from the shores of Bassenthwaite Lake, these five holiday cottages nestle under the Skiddaw mountain range, in peaceful surroundings where you can sit and admire the breathtaking views or stroll through glorious countryside. These delightful cottages have been carefully created from old farm buildings and each is uniquely furnished and decorated, retaining character and charm. Scattered around the courtyard, each of these cottages has shared use of the extensive grounds and also a well-equipped games room and a children's play area. With a variety of accommodation across these five cottages, there is plenty of flexibility for all party sizes, and together they can accommodate 21 people, perfect for that special family get-together. There is plenty to do in the local area. These cottages are near the Osprey Project, where visitors can observe wild ospreys in their nests. There are numerous walks from the doorstep, in Whinlatter Forest there is the Go Ape tree-top adventure course, plus walks and mountain bike trails, while the Honister Slate Mine is a fascinating destination at any time of year. Keswick, sitting on the shores of Derwentwater, is 7 miles away, with many interesting shops and cafes. With ghyll scrambling, canoeing and whitewater rafting all available locally, there is something for everyone at these idyllic cottages.

About the location

BASSENTHWAITE

Keswick 8 miles; Cockermouth 9 miles.

An attractive village in the Northern Lakes, Bassenthwaite lies just a short distance to the north east of Bassenthwaite Lake, and retains its traditional rural feel, with a stream flowing gently on the outskirts, whitewashed Lakeland cottages, a pleasant vllage green and a real ale inn full of character! Bassenthwaite Lake itself, while boasting gentler scenery than others in the region, is still one of the most picturesque places in England. Places of interest nearby include Mirehouse, a grand house and gardens on the shores of the Lake with small open-air theatre (reputedly frequented by poets such as Tennyson and Wordsworth), LAke District Wildlife Park, and Dodd Wood. Most of the attractions of the Lake District are within easy reach and the quieter Northern Fells are almost on the doorstep. The nearby towns of Cockermouth and Keswick, both have weekly markets and offer a good range of amenities. The scenery of the Yorkshire Dales is within touring distance, as is the city of Carlisle and Hadrians Wall country.
