Link house is in a lovely quiet situation, and the welcome and service provided by Pete and Katie are exceptional. We love the Theatre by the Lake, Dubwath Silver Meadows, and the food at the Bistro in the nearby Lakes Distillery.

About
Description
Link House is a late Victorian Country Guest House, situated on the edge of Bassenthwaite Lake, near the Cumbrian towns of Keswick and Cockermouth, with stunning views of both forests and fells. ...More Traditionally built in the late Victorian age, this country house enjoys stunning views of the forest and surrounding fells including Skiddaw. The sunny aspect gives a warm and comfortable atmosphere in which to relax and feel at home. We are situated almost half-way between the towns of Keswick and Cockermouth, birthplace of William Wordsworth and the oldest town in Cumbria, just off the A66 at the northern tip of Bassenthwaite Lake. Link House is easy to find. In the quieter part of the Lake District National Park, yet with access to many interesting places to visit such as the Whinlatter Visitor Centre where the Ospreys who nest nearby each year, can be viewed. A peaceful location for the serious walker or for touring by car or bike. We also have a guest lounge for guests to enjoy. Less
