Rainbow Cottage is a delightful pet friendly Lake District cottage sleeping 5 people (or 6 with the use of a pull out bed) in the superb location of Bassenthwaite Village.
There is walking and hiking from the front door both to the higher fells. You can climb to summit of Skiddaw straight from the fron door or explore the woodlands and fields that surround the village. You can also walk to the shores of Bassenthwaite Lake.
It's a two minute walk from the cottage to The Sun Inn, a great Lakeland pub, where you can enjoy a pint of real ale, an excellent meal and superb views of Skiddaw and the Lake District fells.
Bassenthwaite Village itself is really family friendly - there is a traditional village green, a children's play area and a little stream running through the village for paddling or feeding the ducks.
Keswick is a ten minute drive away. Here you can try all kinds of outdoor activities, from watersports and downhill mountainbike trails to climbing and ghyll scrambling. There are also a wide range of amenities including shops, restaurants, an award winning theatre and many other popular attractions.
