The latter is a pleasant market town with a good range of shops and several small supermarkets including Sainsburys. It also has less traffic congestion in the busy season. 'Booths' is Keswicks largest supermarket and is very good. Fresh bread, newspapers and other basics are sold at the local village shop. The opening hours vary according to the season and the shop closes from the end of October to March.Pubs and Food - The very popular "Sun" in Bassenthwaite which is open all day and serves good food and Jennnings beer is about 1.5 miles and a 20-25 minute walk from the house.

Locally there is a visitor centre with a variety of short walks at Whinlatter. Dodd Wood, opposite Mirehouse on the way to Keswick, has routes in the woods. Mirehouse also has a play area for children and has previously won the national title as 'the best property to visit for families' in a poll of visitors to country houses. From Mireside you can walk to Bassenthwaite Lake.Buses - The Bus Stop is at the Crossroads about half a mile away. The X4 runs every two hours to both Keswick and Cockermouth.

“Very comfortable accommodation in good location”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2013

The booking process was straightforward - linen and utilities included. The directions were clear. The farmhouse is located about 15 minutes walk from the lake, and away from the main road, so pretty quiet. The garden is large with some limited seating and a rope swing, surrounded by beautiful views. The farmhouse has a large kitchen and large kitchen table and was well equipped with implements. Washer and dryer in good condition were present. Wifi worked well. Adequate mobile phone coverage outside the farmhouse. TV in the main lounge and separate TV lounge with some digital channels which the children appreciated. About 15 minutes to drive to Keswick. Well situated for walks in the northern lakes. Sale Fell is a good local one, just NW of the lake. Local amenities are very limited - the shop at the caravan site down the road had even run out of bread! - so we did all our shopping at Booths in Keswick (Cockermouth would have been an alternative, but most of our outings were in the Keswick direction.)
