Cottages in Bassenthwaite and surrounding villages

Bassenthwaite Lake is perhaps one of the least touristy Lakes in Cumbria and you may even see Osprey sweeping down to pluck a fish as they nest close by in Dodds Wood. The village of Bassenthwaite is so unspoilt by tourism that it has just one pub, The Sun Inn where you can find Real Ales and good food. There are no shops, but there is a delightful stream meandering through the village where you can often watch the ducks swim by.
