A lovely stretch of water. To many access points to mention, but Mirehouse and gardens are worth a special mention.

We drove round the Lake as well as taking a stroll. The views are fabulous and on a clear day, Scafell Pike could be seen. We were lucky with the weather as we had no rain during the day.

Hello, I'm sorry you have been misinformed, we didn't cycle round Bassenthwaite lake. Just had a brilliant stay at the Armathwaite Hall Hotel.
