Location, Location, Location! 4 Cottages - Along a country lane into delightful Bassenthwaite Village, nestling at the foot of Skiddaw and a pleasant 2 mile walk from the shores of Bassenthwaite Lake. Our 17th-century cottages and apartments lie in an unrivalled location on a working duck/sheep farm, by a stream with ducks. The perfect place to relax and unwind with family and friends.

A gentle stroll beside the river takes you to the village inn where good food is served everyday. This is the ideal base to explore the Lake District with the three hightest mountain peaks in England, Scafell, Skiddaw and Helvellyn, within easy reach. The area boasts many activities available throughout the year including walking, climbing, mountain biking, golf, sailing or fishing.

Why not take a trip on the Keswick Launch or stroll around the many parks and gardens. Children can enjoy catching minnows in the stream or playing on the swings in the wood and feeding the ducks. Alternatively a game of football or cricket can be enjoyed on the village green.

This quirky beamed property is on ground level and offers 1 double bedroom and 1 showerroom, lounge and newly fitted kitchen all with character. Views to stream and hills. Well maintained and very clean.

The ducks waddle past the door from farm to stream and call for tit bits. Baby ducklings hatch periodically and cause much interest. Ideal for young and old alike, but as it is mainly on ground level, is very suitable for the less active elderly .

The village Inn is only a short distance away up the riverside. Seating outside the cottage door and seating by the stream. Many happy hours can be spent sitting reading a book by the stream, or enjoying a glass of wine, and just watching the world go by in this lovely setting.

Ample parking. For short breaks contact the owner directly
