Brook House 1
(Sleeps up to 10)

Brook House Cottages lie in the delightful village of Bassenthwaite, nestling at the foot of Skiddaw. Our cottages lie in this idylic "sleepy hollow" beside a beautiful stream with ducks and a rustic old bridge .
A gentle stroll further up the riverside takes you to the 17th century inn where good food is served every day. Bassenthwaite Lake is a pleasant 2 miles walk away.

Our Amenities
Laundry facilities with washing machines and tumble dryers (small charge applies) and a drying room for walkers' outdoor clothing.

We recommend children bring wellington boots as they often play in the stream and small open woodland.

Off road parking is available for most cars.

Cots, high chairs and stair gates are available free of charge
but please request in advance of arrival.

Our Location

The small village of Bassenthwaite is 2 miles from the shores of Bassenthwaite Lake (the only official 'Lake' in the Lake District!) and 2 miles from the foot of Skiddaw, the 4th highest mountain in the Lake District.

Many guests enjoy collecting the Puddle Ducks eggs in the morning or sitting on the benches by the stream watching the Puddle Ducks.

Children enjoy playing in the stream, on the swings by the cottages and on the village green - ideal for a game of football or cricket!



There are excellent walks for all abilities straight from the cottage door or after a short drive. A series of local walks is available with proceeds to cancer research.

Bassenthwaite has several working farms and throughout the year animals can be seen in the fields around the village.

The Sun Inn pub serving bar meals is located in the heart of the village. A short walk or drive away is a small shop on a caravan park selling general supplies (open April to October).

There are regular bus services to Keswick, Cockermouth and Penrith (nearest train station) and infrequent services to Carlisle.

The Local Area

The popular Lake District market town of Keswick, on the shores of Derwentwater, and Cockermouth, the town of William Wordsworth's family home, are only 15 minutes away.

Nearby is the famous Osprey viewpoint and also Mirehouse Historic House and Gardens with adventure playground, and Trotters' World of Animals.

Bassenthwaite is an ideal location for exploring all of the Lake District and the Cumbrian countryside including the Solway Coast, the historic border city of Carlisle, Hadrian's Wall and the lovely Eden Valley.
