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.(NB We do not get flooded!) 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. Our ducks create much interest as they waddle too and fro from farm to stream. Egg collecting is great fun in the mornings when we let them out.

(ducks only lay March - Oct) Periodically we hatch baby ducklings in an incubator which is very exciting as we watch them chipping out of their shells. Lambing takes place from Feb - April in the nearby barns which is exciting to watch. It is a real old-fashioned setting which is calming and relaxing - like stepping back in time! There is a large village green where a good game of football can be played, or pooh sticks in the stream catching minnows build a dam,, or build a camp in the small wood across the stream.

Great for children to explore, run about freely as kids used to, safely, and let off steam This is the ideal base to explore the Lake District with the three highest mountain peaks in England, Scafell, Skiddaw and Helvellyn, within easy reach.More gentle walks down country lanes are in abundance from the doorstep. 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.
