Bassenthwaite holds dear memories for all our family as we stayed many times around there years ago. Nice to see Armathwaite Hall more accessible to the average visitor.

Our hotel overlooked this lake, which was just lovely. Shame it rained all day Monday though or we could have investigated further.

Well worth a visit, wear sensible footwear and pack a picnic to enjoy half way round. A comfortable walk that takes approx. 2 hours but manageable with you children on foot (no pushchairs)

Didn`t think this lake was as attractive as some of the others.It is used by locals who like to go out on their small sailing boats.There is a path on the western side of the lake but busy traffic spoils the atmosphere. There is a bird hide nea the southern end of the lake and whilst I was there i saw an otter in the lake.
