Lakeside accommodation superbly situated between Keswick and Cockermouth

Situated in Dubwath at the head of Bassenthwaite Lake. The shore is a short stroll away and rich with wildlife. Between April and September you may even be lucky enough to see the rare Ospreys that nest near the lake. Keswick and Cockermouth are a scenic ten minute drive in opposite directions from Lakeside Country Guest house. Cockermouth is known for being the birthplace of William Wordsworth. It is beautiful town with many Georgian buildings, plenty of independent shops and places to eat and drink. In the other direction Keswick is a popular outdoor town with dog friendly pubs, outdoor shops and activity providers.

There is superb walking in the Bassenthwaite area around Lakeside Country Guest House. Skiddaw, Sale Fell, Binsey and Dodd Wood are all within a 5-10 minute drive. There are some pleasant walks from the door to the lake shore or to Dubwath Meadows, a nature reserve with board walks and bird hides. Dodd Wood has a small tearoom and signed walks through the forest to the summit viewpoint where there is a stunning vista across Bassenthwaite and Derwentwater.
