Very happy that we could be your base in Bassenthwaite. We have so many close walks nearby that lead you away from the crowds. This is a perfect stopping point in the Lakes for the walker or the relaxer.

We stayed in this wonderful old hotel on a 2-night KGB deal. The staircase, panelling and banisters are all original and the views are lovely. Apparently it has a ghost - but we didnt see one. Our room looked out over the countyside and was perfectly adequate for the length of our stay. The bed was enormous and very comfortable but we both felt the en suite bathroom was cramped - you could hardly turn round in the shower it was such a tight squeeze. Our room did not have a bath but they have a room with a bath along the corridor which you can ask to use.
On arrival we were asked if we wanted fresh milk for the room - which we did - but unfortunately coffee had not been provided, only tea. Also - a welcome addition in the Lake District is their "dry room" where you can store wet clothing after a day in the inevitable rain.
The dining experience was lovely: you order your drink from the small bar and take it through to the beautful old lounge, where you are served petit fours while perusing the menu. Once your meal is ready you are invited through to the dining area - where service is prompt and efficient. If there were to be any criticism of this part of our stay it would have to be the portion sizes - a bit on the scrimping side. However our lamb was cooked to perfection and the complimentary bottle of wine very quaffable.
We would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Room 7 does not have a bath so make sure you ask about a bath when booking.

Happy that you had a comfortable time here. Sorry the weather didn't play along, but as you say, inevitable the lakes need to get filled.
By the time you return we will have completed the first half of our hotel's bathroom renovations and it shouldn't be a tight squeeze anymore. Looking forward to your return.
