Bassenthwaite Lakeside Lodges is part of our Wanderwood Lodge Holidays Collection, nestling on the shores of Bassenthwaite Lake at the foot of dramatic Skiddaw Mountain.
Totally get away from it all and truly get back to nature in one of the Lake District’s most tranquil and unspoilt beauty spots. You’ll soon see why it’s a heavenly haven for wildlife…
Wander from your doorstep into Dodds Woods for a spot of osprey watching. Enjoy sharing your walk with red squirrels and your waterside with wildfowl, or simply pull on your boots, grab your gear and get stuck in to some serious bug-hunting!
Challenge yourself with canoeing, conquer fells, jump on a bike and follow a trail – or just relax with a gentle horseback ride or serene sail as you watch the sky travel the surface of the water…
You’ll come home to all the luxury you’ll want after a hard day’s exploring, from contemporary comforts to sinking into your own outdoor hot tub. There’s fishing (license required Mar–Nov), private sailing (Mar–Oct), Wi-Fi, a small kids’ play area, DVD lending library and launderette too.
Keep up with the keeper displays at the Wildlife Park just down the road, but don’t forget the many historic houses, castles, gardens and crafts within 30 minutes’ drive.
Keswick, just 6 miles away, is a must – check out its climbing wall, Pencil and Puzzling Place museums, lakeside theatre, distillery, shops, galleries, cafés and breathtaking views.
