Lovely lake. The reflections of the mountains are superb, especially if the is no wind. You can walk here but it is a few miles from the main road and it is better if you go by car. Nearby is Bassenthwaite Village. The local pub is The Sun. Great food. Typical English village. Farms, small chapel, small stream with ducks.... More

From Ravenstone Manor hotel, we walked around part of the shoreline and found it a beautiful contrast to the mountain walks we'd done before. It was low season, so very quiet but it looks as though that part is pretty unspoilt anyway.

Had a brilliant walk round the Lake. A lovely easy walk for any age. A welcome pub at the end or an ice cream!

We started our visit to Lake District from here. A beautiful lake, but not a must see. If you are at leisure, then good place for boating. Driving in Lake District through the scenic hillocks is an experience.

Well worth a visit at Blackstock point. Ability to go down to the waters edge, walk around the lake and take in the beautiful scenery with limited tourism which is seem around some of the other larger lakes.

St Bega's church is a must, so pretty and peaceful. Such a beautiful location by the lake but very hard to find

well worth a visit if you're in the North Lakes. Plenty of stop off opportunities around the Lake for children or adults to enjoy bird watching and the stunning views. The top end has lakeside pubs and restaurants.
