The Lake District

Cumbria is often described as one of the most beautiful areas of England.

Home to many lakes, including Lake Windermere, which is England's largest natural lake. There is much unrivalled countryside to discover, walks to ramble along or cycle trails to follow. For watersports fans, there are many choices available at each of the lakes.

Bassenthwaite

We are ideally placed on the edge of the Lake district Nataional Park to enjoy the delights of Keswick, Cockermouth and the Solway Coast. Nearby we have Bassenthwaite Lake, Buttermere, Loweswater, Derwent Water and many wonderful mountain walks.

4miles from our cottage is the 18 hole James Braid designed Cockermouth golf course at Embleton. The Cockermouth course is a great test of golf combined with spectacular scenery. After teeing off you will soon appreciate the views that are opening up around you, some of the finest in Cumbria.

Local attractions include: Trotters world of animals, Go-Ape at Whinlatter (rope adventures throughthe tree-tops), Cycling in Whinlatter Forest, Watersports at Derwent Water, Lal Ratty railway, The Theatre By The Lake in Keswick, Go Carting at Rowrah and much more!

William Wordsworth was born in Cockermouth and the museum is worth a visit, whilst for those who enjoy a cool glass of bitter a visit to the Jennings brewery tour always proves a hit!
