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 bright accommodation has been refurbished to a high standard to provide a warm comfortable base for a self catering holiday.
Lakeside Lodge is situated in Dubwath at the head of Bassenthwaite Lake. The shore is a short stroll away and rich with wildlife. Keswick and Cockermouth are a scenic ten minute drive in opposite directions from Lakeside Lodge. Cockermouth, known as the birthplace of William Wordsworth, is a beautiful town with many Georgian buildings, plenty of independent shops and lots of 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. Guests can enjoy a 50% discount at the nearby Lakes Distillery - please contact the owner directly during your stay.
Lakeside Lodge can be let along with Meadowside Cottage (which is next door) to accommodate an additional 4 people.
