Only problems were a foul smelling toilet and the fire alarms that sounded on two of the four nights without reason - this could have caused significant...

About the neighbourhood
Bassenthwaite Lake is owned by the National Park Authority and is one of the largest measuring in at almost 4 miles long and ¾ mile wide; but also one of the shallowest with a maximum depth of around 70ft.
