About this property

The Best Western Castle Inn Hotel in Bassenthwaite overlooks the beautiful Bassenthwaite Lake, giving us an incredibly sought after location. We have converted a coaching inn that originally dates from the late 1700s into our thoroughly modern 4 star AA rated hotel, which includes luxury leisure facilities such as an indoor pool, a sauna, a Jacuzzi, a gym, tennis courts and a games room with ping pong, croquet, mini-golf and boules courses and a Wii console. Our hotel is perfect for all holiday types, whether you’re visiting with your partner, your family, your friends or on your own.

Guests to our hotel can dine in our onsite Ritson’s Restaurant and you can enjoy a pre-dinner tipple in the Laker’s Bar & Lounge. Our restaurant serves child-friendly meals, and you’ll love the variety of meals available on our menus. As we’re less than a mile from the northern tip of Bassenthwaite Lake where you can go fishing, boating, walking and take part in many other outdoor pursuits. You should definitely check out Trotters World of Animals while you’re visiting, and you’ll be within easy driving distance of Cockermouth and Keswick.
