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).

What a lovely lodge, big fields for dog, jetty down at the Lake to play, fabulous, if only you could guarantee the weather ðŸ˜€
Perfect setting and deluxe ,comfortable lodge
We have already booked again
The lodge was well appointed, immaculately clean and the kitchen was well kitted out with a good range of cooking utensils. The location was incredible even though the weather was a little inclement!!
Only two small criticisms. Our main bathroom was equipped with only a bath and no shower, so we all had to share the ensuite, which was a bit awkward. Also the frying pan supplied was tiny compared to the rest of the utensils, which were scaled up for use cooking for six people.
I'd definitely recommend the lodges to friends and family.
Great location, so quiet and pretty. But close to Keswick and lots of places to visit.
great site, good accommodation, clean and well presented. Could do with more pans as very limited for 6 people.
Lovely setting, very peaceful. Dogs welcomed with blankets and towels and dishes there for them which was a lovely thought. Nice and clean. Ideal base for exploring the lakes with the dogs. Will go again
Great location on the lakesshore shame that the pub is a fair walk away.
Nice quiet caravan site. Great location. Bring your own water craft. Ideal for quiet break.
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.
