Lakeside Lodge is a light, modern self catering property with its own quiet private entrance and garden. It is located behind Lakeside Country Guest House in Bassenthwaite Lake and is detached from the main house. The accommodation has been refurbished to a high standard to provide a warm comfortable base for a self catering holiday.
Inside there is a stylish open plan living area with patio doors to the garden. The lounge area has a comfortable sofa, TV and DVD and pleasant views over the meadows. The well equipped kitchen is open plan with a dining table and seating. The bedroom is on a mezzanine gallery with a double bed and a view to Sale Fell from the window. In the bathroom the owners have thoughtfully provided fluffy cotton towels and complimentary toiletries to use in the bath with power shower over.
Lakeside Lodge is situated in Dubwath at the head of Bassenthwaite Lake. The shore is a short stroll away and rich with wildlife. Between April and September you may even be lucky enough to see the rare Ospreys that nest near the lake. Keswick and Cockermouth are a scenic ten minute drive in opposite directions from Lakeside Lodge. Cockermouth is known for being the birthplace of William Wordsworth. It is beautiful town with many Georgian buildings, plenty of independent shops and places to eat and drink. In the other direction Keswick is a popular outdoor town with dog friendly pubs, outdoor shops and activity providers.
There is superb walking in the Bassenthwaite area around Lakeside Lodge. Skiddaw, Sale Fell, Binsey and Dodd Wood are all within a 5-10 minute drive. There are some pleasant walks from the door to the lake shore or to Dubwath Meadows, a nature reserve with board walks and bird hides. Dodd Wood has a small tearoom and signed walks through the forest to the summit viewpoint where there is a stunning vista across Bassenthwaite and Derwentwater.
Lakeside Lodge can be let along with Meadowside Cottage (which is next door) to accommodate an additional 4 people.
