Welcome to The Pheasant

The Pheasant at Bassenthwaite Lake offers the warmest of Cumbrian welcomes in a tradition that has stood the test of time for more than two centuries. Originally a Lakeland staging post and coaching inn, The Pheasant is now a unique hotel and restaurant that combines outstanding hospitality and local character with delicious food and an amazing setting where the woods meet the water and the fells meet Bassenthwaite Lake.

This outstanding Bassenthwaite hotel provides a perfect base for exploring the Lake District as well as offering wonderful food and drink, charming bedroom accommodation and a real flavour of the best that Cumbria has to offer. Located just off the a66 near to the market towns of Keswick and Cockermouth, we at The Pheasant very much look forward to extending that warm Cumbrian welcome to you very soon.

Don't forget, we are a dog friendly hotel and warmly welcome well behaved dogs in the bar and lounges, and now (due to exceptional demand) four of the bedrooms. See our hotel special offers including spring/summer breaks in 2016.
