Your hosts Coral and John are well travelled and have spent many years living in different parts of the UK and abroad.
We do have dogs but they are accommodated separately and are not permitted to wander into the guest areas. If you wish to bring your dog we can advise on local kennels that offer night boarding so that you are free to enjoy their company during the day.
We hope you come and stay with us soon to experience what the area and our hospitality has to offer.
We are a small family run B&B with en-suite rooms with Mountain and Lake views. We are the nearest Bed and Breakfast to Armathwaite Hall. Bassenthwaite is one of the little known gems of the Lake District. As you travel over Ouse Bridge from the A66 you cannot help but marvel at the fabulous sight of Bassenthwaite Lake opening out.
We spent a number of years choosing our home and believe a better position to base a visit to the Lake District would be hard to find. This is whether you choose to explore the immediate area on foot or bike or would like to travel further afield to the other lakes in the District. Which ever you choose Bassenthwaite holds a charm which will be sure to bring you back time and time again.
We are able to offer exclusive hire at preferential rates to groups of up to 8 friends or family members. However we are close by to a number of wedding venues and get many advanced booking because of this so please book early to avoid disappointment.
We are also able to offer accommodation to common interest groups or colleagues on away days/team building. We can provide light refreshments and catering on this basis. Coral is a qualified facilitator and Executive Coach so we may be able to offer a package deal which includes facilitation and/or a programme of events. Please contact us for more information.
