    About this property

    • The Pheasant Inn at Bassenthwaite Lake was originally a staging post and coaching inn, before becoming a unique hotel and 2 AA Rosette restaurant, combining outstanding hospitality and local character. Situated next to Bassenthwaite Lake, the Pheasant benefits from landscaped gardens and woodlands. The Pheasant Inn comprises a detached roughly “L” shaped building of traditional stone construction which trades over two levels, surmounted by a pitched slate covered roof. Externally finished with white washed elevations with box paned double glazed windows. A welcoming entrance porch leads internally to a property which is finished in a traditional country house theme, retaining original features such as beamed ceilings and fireplaces with the fixtures and fitting sympathetic to the rural Lakeland setting. The hotel is located in the north of the Lake District, on the western side of the picturesque Bassenthwaite Lake, roughly equidistant between the market towns of Cockermouth and Keswick. The Pheasant Inn is easily accessible off the A66, which runs from the east to the west coast and provides access to the M6, approximately 24 miles to the east.
