This was our sixth stay at Bassenfell as part of a walking group which as been coming here now for the last 11 years. It's always great and we had fantastic weather (again!) which was a bonus. The wifi at the Manor has been upgraded since last year and the free service is pretty good. They now also sell premium... More

We stayed in the Bassenfell apartment for 3 nights. The flat is clean, warm, comfortably furnished and excellent value for money. It's a good location from which to explore the northern lakes. We had good weather so we were not in much but having a DVD player and free wifi would have been useful if the weather had been rubbish.

The facilities are excellent with lots of on site activities including an incredible 75 foot tree climb! Staff at the centre were helpful, friendly and were involved in leading some of the training exercises. Rooms were well appointed, comfortable and mine had its... More

The walks and the fellowship were all first rate. I took along a group of friends, after extolling the virtues of Bassenfell, and was a little concern that they might not... More

I spent a wonderful week canoeing here, and I left wanting to stay longer. The owners and staff are such friendly kind fun people, the house is in the most beautiful location, it has warm cosy accomodation, and awesome activities! I would definitely go back.
