Our Inspector's view

The Pheasant Inn enjoys a rural setting on the western side of Bassenthwaite Lake. Well-tended gardens where guests can sit and enjoy the wooded location and a pint of real ale. This friendly 500-year-old inn under new ownership has enjoyed a full refurbishment with very good results achieved whilst the warm hospitality and service still remain. The attractive oak-panelled bar has seen few changes over the years, and still remains a wonderful feature today. The tastefully decorated bedrooms differ in size but are stylish and thoughtfully equipped for the modern guest. Dog friendly bedrooms are available.

About the area

Discover Cumbria

Cumbria's rugged yet beautiful landscape is best known for the Lake District National Park that sits within its boundaries. It’s famous for Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, and Derwent Water, ‘Queen of the English Lakes'. This beautiful countryside once inspired William Wordsworth and his home, Dove Cottage, in Grasmere is a popular museum. Another place of literary pilgrimage is Hill Top, home of Beatrix Potter, located near Windermere. Tom Kitten, Samuel Whiskers and Jemima Puddleduck were all created here.

Much of Cumbria is often overlooked in favour of the Lake Distirct. In the south, the Lune Valley remains as lovely as it was when Turner painted it. The coast is also a secret gem. With its wide cobbled streets, spacious green and views of the Solway Firth, Silloth is a fine Victorian seaside resort. Other towns along this coastline include Whitehaven, Workington and Maryport. Carlisle is well worth a look – once a Roman camp, its red-brick cathedral dates back to the early 12th century and its 11th-century castle was built by William Rufus.
