    Excellent Bassenthwaite Cottage sleeping up to 10 guests

    Situated in the northern Lake District, S77126 is perfect for families, with plenty of adventures to be had locally.
    S77126 is set in the quiet hamlet of Ruthwaite, in the beautiful northern Lake District. This semi-detached, period house has masses of character from beautiful beams and wood burners to a real Aga. A great feature of the house is the large inglenook fireplace, in the more formal living room, which was taken from the local manor house when it burnt down decades ago.
    This spacious, well finished property benefits from two living rooms, as well as a large kitchen/dining room and utility room. This space allows you to make the most of your relaxing break, and is ideal both for families or groups of friends. The French doors in the dining room and living room make sure that in summer you can enjoy the large, fully enclosed gardens with views of the fells.
    There are walks available right from the front door with Binsey Fell, which has a stunning viewpoint from the summit, not far away. It is only a short drive of around 20 minutes to both Keswick and Cockermouth, and only 15 minutes to Caldbeck. All three towns have a fantastic range of independent shops, pubs and restaurants to suit all tastes. Although for nights at home, the large, well equipped kitchen will make entertaining your friends and family a treat.
    There is plenty to do in the area from local hills to walk, shopping in Keswick with its market and independent shops, or days of pampering at Armathwaite Hall Spa. Shop 1½ miles, pub and restaurant 1¼ miles.

    "6 adults and 3 small children - had a wonderful time here. We had some cleaning issues, but these were addressed when raised. Great house with visits by a red squirrel and in a beautiful part of the Lakes. Would come again."
    Emily – 17 Feb 2018
    "Lovely cottage, great for what we needed. Beautiful area and we easily kept 6 kids ages 9 to 18 months entertained. Would have been nice to have had some wood for the fire on the first night or even tips where we could buy some from."
    Deborah – 7 Jan 2018
    "We had a great week at S77126 for our family New Year Break. The house is spacious, warm, cosy, well equipped and suitable for all age groups. The Christmas hamper was a lovely gesture - thank you. We loved the log burners and cooking on the Aga. It’s in a quiet rural location and a perfect “get away from it all”, however, there is good WiFi connection if needed. Great walks from the door and nearby for all abilities from the gentle Binsey Fell to the more challenging Skiddaw. We enjoyed food at the Snooty Fox and Mae’s Tearoom (Uldale) and the Black Lion (Ireby), all within about a mile from JPH and all very welcoming. Keswick and Cockermouth are about 20 minutes drive for shopping. We did have a couple of minor issues with the house on arrival but the owner responded and resolved these quickly so it didn’t spoil our stay. Would have no hesitation in recommending the property and hope to return for another visit."
