Hotels in Bassenthwaite
Anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life should make Bassenthwaite their first stop. This idyllic Cumbrian village offers a picture of rural English life which many assumed had disappeared entirely, with a stunning lake as the perfect backdrop to a relaxing getaway. The village has fewer than 500 residents, meaning that anyone looking to get away from the crowds will be able to unwind in a relaxed agricultural community for a while.
A picturesque lake, an imposing mountain
Bassenthwaite Lake is situated about one mile from the village, and attracts visitors for a variety of reasons. Aside from its natural beauty, which is evident from the outset, the lake is also home to a number of fascinating bird species, including the curlew, greylag and meadow pipit, amongst others. Be sure to bring your binoculars!
Of course, this being the Lake District, Bassenthwaite provides ample opportunities for walkers looking to experience this glorious part of the country first hand. Ullock Pike and Lord's Seat are both popular local routes, while Binsey Fell was favoured by Alfred Wainwright (arguably the foremost authority on local trails). The village also sits under the dominating presence of Skiddaw – the fourth-highest mountain in England. Anyone who tackles this daunting route will most definitely have earned their post-walk pint in the village pub.
