Bassenthwaite Lake Station

Want to dine in style? Look no further than Bassenthwaite Lake Station.

The venue is perched where the old Keswick, Cockermouth and Penrith railway line once stood, on the banks of Bassenthwaite Lake.

Bassenthwaite Lake Station came to be in 2019, when two proprietors bought the venue. It was originally supposed to be a quirky, steam engine holiday let but was instead turned into a restaurant.

A replica French SNCF 241 steam engine has since been constructed and is now a permanent part of the venue. The train has famous ties, being featured in the movie ‘Murder on the Orient Express’.

While the train doesn’t take visitors to and from the nearby towns, it serves as a wonderful place for a meal out. The carriage can fit 32 people and is the perfect place to come for brunch! If you want to dine here, you must book in advance.

The ticket office and waiting rooms are also available for any walk-in diners. These spaces are equally lovely to dine in!

There are three menus on offer at Bassenthwaite Lake Station. The first being the breakfast menu, where you can choose from full Cumbrian breakfasts and treats. A café menu is also available, featuring a wider variety of brunch dishes.

However, the venue prides itself on its unique afternoon teas in the train carriage. If you want to enjoy these, please book in advance.

A quirky dining experience awaits at Bassenthwaite Lake Station…
