OVERVIEW

Take a step back in time, Station Masters House is a detached Cumbrian cottage, full of oldie Worldly charm situated close to the shores of Bassenthwaite Lake, the wood burning stove is great to cuddle up to on a chilly evening after a day exploring.


Station Masters House is located midway between the beautiful market towns of Keswick and Cockermouth, both only 6 miles away, at the northern tip of Bassenthwaite Lake. The area is ideal for those who enjoy the great outdoors, the recently opened Dubwath Silver Meadow Wetland Reserve is just opposite the house and Peil Wyke Woods and Sale Fell are both within walking distance, along with the many other walking and mountain biking opportunities right from the door means you are able to escape the hustle and bustle of the busier towns whilst enjoying an active holiday.


As the name suggests, this 2 bedroom detached cottage was once the station masters own home, which has now been converted into a basic yet cosy holiday retreat after the closure of the railway line. Bassenthwaite Lake and the traditional Pheasant Inn, serving excellent food and ale, are both within walking distance and the welcoming wood burning stove is great to cuddle up to after a day on the fells, making this an ideal choice at any time of year.
