Cottages - Bassenthwaite Lake and Vale of Lorton


Stay in a cottage in Bassenthwaite and enjoy this unspoilt corner of Cumbria.

Bassenthwaite Lake is perhaps one of the least touristy Lakes in Cumbria and an excellent spot for osprey watching, sailing and picnicing by. The medieval village of Bassenthwaite is within easy access of Keswick and Cockermouth making it perfect for exploring the Northern Lakes whilst being slightly off the tourist track.
