About the neighborhood
Country village cottage 'by a stream with ducks' in Bassenthwaite Village, with village green, walks down country lanes, and to the lake, fells, waterfalls, Trotters Animal Park, Osprey viewpoint, Mirehouse country house, and playground.

15 mins' drive from the bustling market town of Keswick. Free parking available, some off-road, remainder on quiet village road by cottage.
Getting around
You will need a car preferably, but there are some buses to Keswick so it is possible to use public transport. Check bus time table as it varies at different times of year. There is a mountain goat bus which takes you all around the lakes and also an open topped bus in the summer months which does the same. Bring your bus pass if you have one then you can use it here! The nearest train station is Penrith then you would take a bus to Keswick and change there for Bassenthwaite Village.

Brook House lies tucked away in a sleepy hollow 1 mile away from the A591 - 6 miles from Keswick and 20 miles from carlisle and Penrith M6 Junction 40. The cottage is by the stream near where the wooden bridge is over the stream. There are country walks in all directions. Or for the more adventurous fells and mountains to climb. We are 6 miles from the A591 (half an hour from junction 40 M6)
