Bassenthwaite Lake,
CA13 9YD


Only a short walk to the beautiful shores of Bassenthwaite Lake, this country house enjoys stunning views of the forests and surrounding fells including Skiddaw, Britain’s fourth highest peak.

Taken over in 2010 by Rowan and Judith this is a comfortably furnished licensed guesthouse, which maintains a relaxed, homely atmosphere. En suite facilities are available in 7 of our 8 bedrooms and the eighth has its own private bathroom. All bedrooms are equipped with tea/coffee making facilities, flat screen TV and hairdryer. Many of the period Victorian features have been retained downstairs. The guest lounge combines a warm, cosy feeling with wonderful views over Sale fell. Breakfast is served in the light and airy conservatory which enjoys views over open fields. Ideal in spring with the lambs are to be seen. A private car park to the rear of the property allows safe off-road parking for guests. Cycle storage and drying facilities available.

A full Cumbrian breakfast is included in our rates and wherever possible fresh, local produce is used.

Located only 10-15 minutes from both Keswick and Cockermouth, Link House is the ideal base for your Lakeland holiday.
