Link House is a late Victorian Country Guest House, situated close to Bassenthwaite Lake with stunning views of both forests and fells. Traditionally built in the late Victorian age, this country house enjoys stunning views of the forest and surrounding fells including the 3046 feet Skiddaw.
The sunny aspect gives a warm and comfortable atmosphere in which to relax and feel at home.
We are situated a short distance from the A66 at the northern tip of Bassenthwaite Lake; approx 8 miles from the popular tourist town of Keswick and 5 miles from the old market town of Cockermouth, birthplace of William Wordsworth and the oldest town in Cumbria.
Link House is in the quieter part of the Lake District National Park, yet with access to many interesting places to visit such as the Whinlatter Visitor Centre and Dodd Wood where the Ospreys who nest nearby each year, can be viewed. It makes an ideal base for walkers, cyclists, sailors ( we are 500 metres to Bassenthwaite Sailing Club), wedding guests ( less than 2 miles from Armathwaite Hall), or anyone attending courses at Higham Hall.
We are also a few minutes walk from The Lakes Distillery, one of the most popular attractions and restaurants in the area. The Pheasant Historic Inn and Bistro restaurant is also within walking distance. Please check out the Eating Out section in the Things to Do tab for further ideas. We always recommend you book local restaurants especially if arriving on a weekend or during the school holidays as they are so popular!
