Rebecca Puddle Duck Cottage is located in the beautiful village of Bassenthwaite, with a stream where puddle ducks wander to and fro and the cottage is only a couple of minutes’ walk to the village pub serving local ales and meals and only 15 minutes from the bustling, Lakeland town of Keswick. The cottage is reverse plan, with a double bedroom on the ground floor and an open plan living/dining room, kitchen and bathroom on the first floor. There are views from the dining area and bedroom over the rooftops to the mighty Skiddaw mountain in the distance (the 4th highest mountain in the Lake District/England). The chunky beams upstairs are a quirky feature - tall guests will have to duck as they enter the lounge and dining area! There’s also a shower over the bath.
There are an abundance of walks from the front door, including Skiddaw and Bassenthwaite Lake. Rebecca’s Cottage is located in the heart of the village of Bassenthwaite, in the northern region of the Lake District National Park, approximately a 15-minute drive from the towns of Keswick and Cockermouth.
The cottage is an excellent base to explore some of the quieter corners of the Lake District. Bassenthwaite has several working farms and throughout the year animals can be seen in the fields around the village.
Bassenthwaite is 2 miles from the shores of Bassenthwaite Lake (an ideal walk to the only official lake in the Lake District!) and 2 miles from the foot of Skiddaw, the fourth highest mountain in the Lake District. There are excellent walks for all abilities straight from the cottage door or a short drive away. There is a wildlife park in Bassenthwaite, a 5-minute drive from the cottage, and Mirehouse and Gardens is under a 10-minute drive towards Keswick. The Lakes Distillery is under a 10-minute drive towards Cockermouth and offers guided tours.
There are many activities for all ages and abilities in the Lake District and Cumbria, as well as great places to visit and enjoy.
Bassenthwaite is almost mid-way between Keswick and Cockermouth, so going either direction has its own benefits. Keswick is a magnet for the Lake District visitor with Derwentwater, several parks including crazy golf, mini golf and putting, shops, cafés, restaurants, galleries, a museum, cinema, theatre, brewery and more. Cockermouth is much more of a locals town first and a visitor centre second, though still has more than its fair share of things to see and do. These include several antique shops, Mitchells livestock auction market where you can watch sheep and cattle being sold, Jennings Brewery, Wordsworth House (the birthplace of the poet William Wordsworth), the annual food festival in September attracting 30,000 people, and a good selection of unique owner-run shops and eateries. Beach 17 miles. Nearest shops in Keswick or Cockermouth 15 minutes drive or online supermarket delivery available, pub and restaurant 200 yard
