The Lakes & Fells:

There is only one official lake in the Lake District and it is the one closest to the hotel – Bassenthwaite Lake - the only body of water to have the word “lake” in its title.  The rest are instead regarded as “tarns”, “meres” or “waters”.   Visit Windermere for the day, at 10.5 miles long, one mile wide and 220 ft deep, this is the largest lake in England.

From the depth’s of the lakes to the heights of the fells here in the Lake District we are lucky to have such beautiful, natural landscape. 

Why not “bag” a Wainwright or two with our highest fell at a staggering 978 metres, Scafell Pike to Castle Crag, the smallest Wainwright at 290 metres.

Western Coast:

Just a stone’s throw away divert your attention to the Western Coast, Maryport, Allonby and Silloth to the North and Whitehaven and St Bees to the South are a great day trip whilst on your holiday.
