We came to Bassenthwaite a few years ago and stayed in Overwater Hall. It was nice but we thought we would try somewhere different this time. The Ravenstone was brilliant and we will definitely be coming back here on our next trip. It's so friendly and relaxed, they really make you feel at home. The included breakfast is great, we loved the snooker table in the games room and it was nice to relax on a night in front of the lounge fire. The hotel is joined to the start of a trail up Ullock Pike as well which gives gorgeous views over the lake. It's hard going getting up there though if you aren't used to fellwalking!
The hotel is a 5 minute drive out of Keswick which was nice as there are plenty of restaurants and pubs to give you a bit of variation on an evening. It's also 5 minutes away from Trotters World of Animals which is also a great day out. Lovely break away all round
