“lovely farmhouse style accommodation in a peaceful location”
We stayed as a group of 8 in Brook House 1 and 2 in the Nest but the accommodation felt spacious even with 10 of us in Brook House. There are also 3 showers and 3 toilets so no problem there. We lit the open fire twice in the week as it was cold for July and it was very effective at warming the living room and gave a nice atmosphere. The children enjoyed the ducks, stream, and swing. It is much more peaceful than the other side of the valley and very little traffic comes through the village itself, yet it really is just 15-20 minutes to the centre of Keswick unless you get stuck behind a tractor (we had been dubious about this looking on the map). We would be happy to stay here again.
“Excellent value and great for kids. Friendly and welcoming.”
Really pleased with the cottage and its ammenities. Stream very entertaining for kids and they loved feeding the ducks and collecting the eggs every morning. Warm cottage with plenty of space. The local pub is fantastic also, really good food. Will definitely be back again.
“Superb, home away from home and many beautiful extras at hand too. Wow.. we just love this place!”
Brook House is the most charming idyllic home and Allison the owner is a treasure and we thank her for her kindness and help at every turn. The house is so well equipped nothing is missing and the log fire with an immense free supply of wood is just perfect. The Sun pub is just around the corner and across the road is a large running stream with ducks running freely. We cooked on the BBQ every night for about 25+ family members and the house setting and hospitality is just superb. Shame we had to go home.
Great house, excellently equipped for larger groups with all the pots and pans needed and sharp knifes! Lounge lovely and homely. All rooms just right, clean and cosy. Photos on web don't do house justice. We'll be back again.
“Great holiday location”
Beautiful location and luckily we had the added bonus of tremendous weather. Alison couldn't have been any more helpful. My son loved letting the ducks out in the morning and playing in the stream kept them amused. The cottage was well equipped and was ideal for my family. A great holiday!!
“Another glorious Weekend”
Our fifth visit to Brook House, and a wonderful stay as ever. Welcome is always relaxed, and as a group of ten we are left to our own devices for the weekend knowing help is not far if we need it. The weather this year was incredible, and the garden looked terrific. The house has everything you need to cater for (and comfortably house) ten people. You can step out of the garden onto the riverside, or be deep in the forest within five minutes. 2 minutes away from the local pub and only 20 minutes drive for Keswick it is ideal retreat for young families, couples or groups of friends. Wifi this year was a great addition!
“Homely and comfortable!”
Great place to stay with a group of friends, spacious and comfortable. Owner of the cottage is helpful and pleasant, it was easy to book and pay. Fresh duck eggs which you can purchase there are very tasty and worth trying. Good value for money :)
Response from the owner Thank you - pleased you enjoyed your stay and the Bassenthwaite experience at our farm. Alison Trafford
“Our favourite Lake District Holiday”
We have stayed in Brookhouse 1 and 2 and this is our favorite Lake District spot. We travel from the USa and have found this spot a real hidden gem, much better than the busier towns. The cottages are all full of old world traditional charm. Log fires and huge tables for family meals. It also has Wifi and the modern connections we all need. The host, Mrs Trafford is a delight, though us 'Yanks' struggle with the charming dialect:-). The cottages were well presented and clean. There is a beautiful brook outside,ducks to be let out in the mornings, eggs to be collected. There is no need for a pool in the summer, kids can jump in the stream. They can also run free in the village and play soccer on the green. Nearby there is of course plenty of walking, our kids loved Trotters animal farm and the older ones played for hours at Winlatter with it's fantastic playground. For the more adventurous there is Go ape as well as dozens of activity centres for canoeing, climbing, skag running, which is basically sliding down mountains. There is a great Osprey viewing point closeby. Don't forget Keswick which is charming but busy and Derwent Water, all close by. There is also Mire House which is a gem. For foodies the local pub is good, The Sun Inn, and we found the landlords very charming. Plus great real Englih Beer. It is so close you do not have to drive which is an added benefit for us 'boozers.' Go there! Enjoy it! Do not book our week:-)
“Another excellent holiday!”
We think this our seventh year staying with our large party in the various properties on Brook House Farm and once again we had a fantastic time. The properties are perfect for our mixed group of adults and children and are in a great location for walking in the surrounding hills. Mrs Trafford is always at hand for help and advice and we found the village pub to be friendly (including dog-friendly) with good food. We are already booked to go back again next year.
“A peaceful location by a babbling brook- heaven!”
We were so happy with this accomodation. It's clean, cute and comfy. It feels so homely and welcoming- not one of these places where you feel uncomfortable because its so immaculate and clinical. We absolutely loved it and plan to return. Mrs. Trafford is very flexible and accomodating, I always like to deal with the owner. The position is great- tucked away in a real village, with a lovely pub less than two minutes walk away. Its slightly away from central lakes, but within easy reach.
Response from the owner Thank you for your review. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay, and also had the excellent weather which was a bonus. We do aim to please, and try to make everyone relax and enjoy their stay without getting under their feet, but we are always at hand for advice. The stream and ducks are a great attraction here, especially with the youger families. Our local Inn is just within easy reach, just a short stroll up the riverside - a big selling point for us! We are north lakes positiion, but still very handy for all the Lakes, and most people prefer to come back to a quiet "real" village . Will hopefully see you again. Alison Trafford
