Bassenthwaite Lakeside Lodges
These stylish lakeside lodges sit in a beautifully unspoilt part of the Lake District on the shores of Bassenthwaite Lake, with gorgeous views over stunning countryside and a multitude of walks right on the doorstep. The pretty market towns of Keswick, Cockermouth and Ambleside are all within easy driving distance.
You can go fishing or take a private boat on the lake if you fancy a tranquil day on the water. There are plenty of good pubs and restaurants close by - we love Overwater Hall in Cumbria (AA recognised) and the 16th century Priest Hole restaurant in Ambleside - it serves Mediterranean and English food, freshly prepared daily.
All the lodges at Bassenthwaite are superbly styled and extremely comfortable and some sit right at the water's edge with amazing views over the lake. Lakeland Lodge Plus sleeps six people and has French doors that open out onto a patio with private hot tub, perfect for warm, relaxing evenings.
Carlisle Castle is well worth a visit; built originally in 1092, it's where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned. As well as the many water sports that the Lakes are renowned for (head to Windermere for waterskiing, windsurfing, sailing and canoeing).

Amazing, so peaceful, lovely location, very relaxing and stress free. We would love to live here.
We loved our stay at the Bassenthwaite Lakeside Lodges & would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to get away from everything & go hiking. Lovely lodges, hot tubs & amazing views. We will be going back next year.
We had a great weekend
We had a fantastic holiday,and the stay we had made it even much better,loved the hot tub after our long walks out x
Superb. A lovely out of the mix site but close enough to Keswick for convenience.
The lodge was a bit tired looking in some areas for the money we paid.
Far exceeded our expectations and the little 'suprises' such as a picnic hamper, picnic rug and binoculars left in the Lodge for us to use were much appreciated
Amazing place gorgeous for a peaceful lake side holiday . The site is quiet with a kids play ground and amazing hot tubs and lovely walks and surrounding. A drive to any shops , pubs etc
Superb lodge in a great setting. Hope to visit again.
Everything was great .. would definitely be coming back
Beautiful location , wonderful accommodation
Would fully recommend a friend
Myself and my partner had a lovely, relaxing time at the lodges. Our lodge was modern, clean and had everything we needed. Where it was situated was perfect, Keswick is nearby, 10 minutes by car, this is a lovely town with plenty of walks to do. We would definitely stay at the lodges again.
Great location on the lakesshore shame that the pub is a fair walk away.
Great few days away . Fantastic location. Have already booked for next year
Fantastic area with stunning views
The location is beautiful and lodges are clean and modern. The shower broke whilst we were there and the staff were really friendly and it was fixed that day. We arrived to a bottle of prosecco which was a nice touch and delicious. The size of lodge was perfect for us and the got tub was fab.
The lodge was really well appointed and comfortable and had a lovely veranda with outdoor seating and table area and barbecue. The site is set in a stunning lakeside location on the shore of Bassenthwaite Lake and with magnificent Skiddaw mountain behind. The site is in the heart of the wonderful Lake District and is only a short drive away from Keswick so all facilities and amenities are easily accessible.
We love this day out in Cumbria where you're encouraged to "take a fresh look". Some of the amazing animals you will get to see include the only Canadian Lynx in the UK and you will have the opportunity to help their Lynx Conservation Project. The Asian Fishing Cat is also well worth a look - these cats are known for diving under the water and catching fish! Other activities include fantastic flying displays and play areas for the little ones...
This is an award winning Lake District attraction and they have been operating cruisers on Lake Ullswater for over 150 years. There is no better way to explore the lakes than on water and you could even combine a cruise with a spectacular walk. For great days out in this region then this attraction is highly recommended and will appeal to couples as well as families. Corporate groups are also well catered for.
Rydal Mount & Gardens are wonderfully situated between Lake Windermere and Rydal Water offering breathtaking scenery. The home of William Wordsworth from 1813 - 1850 the grand home is now lived in by the poets descendents but parts of the house and grounds are open to the public. Why not take a guided tour and see the rooms where many of the famous poems were written. The gardens are beautiful at all times of the year but in the summer offer a spectacular display of colour. There is also a gallery and a tearoom. Discounts are available for group bookings.
This is a museum and art gallery in one and will suit those looking for an educational and cultural day out. You can explore the fantastic art collection including Fine Art, Decorative Art and Textiles. If you love nature then this aspect of Tullie House will appeal. The museum holds large and important collections of zoological, botanical and geological material. And for lovers of history there is plenty to wet your appetite here. Tullie House collects a wide range of historic materials including objects, ephemera (printed material), photographs and associated information files. We think this museum and art gallery are excellent value for money as well.
