Easter is almost upon us and the long weekend gives many of our guests a wonderful opportunity to get away for a few days and recharge their batteries in the beautiful western Lake District.
Here in Bassenthwaite, the daffodils which Wordsworth so famously wrote, about are in full bloom and there can be no lovelier sight than new born lambs gambolling in the fields. There are so many things to do this Easter from lovely lakeside walks at Bassenthwaite, Loweswater and Derwentwater or maybe tackling the more strenuous routes of Skiddaw or Blencathra. On Easter Sunday itself the Bassenthwaite Rotary Club are setting up a fell top Cafe on nearby Latrigg summit in aid of charity. So you can reward yourself with a well-deserved home-made cake or Cumberland sausage roll after the short but steep ascent to the top.
