Bassenfell Manor Christian Centre is a beautiful old manor house and is located near Bassenthwaite Lake, about 7 miles from Keswick.
We return annually in September to this beautiful house which is designed for groups and is comfortable and relaxing. The bedrooms are dormitory style with a maximum of four to a room, but we can also offer double, twin and triple rooms. The price now includes en-suite facilities in all rooms, although some of these are a private bathroom. The Manor has a lounge, dining room, kitchen, drying room, and ample toilets and showers. We think you will feel very much at home here. For more information on the manor, visit their website.
We sometimes go for the more spectacular peaks such as Hellvelyn, Scafell and Skiddaw. However, the variety of walking on offer ranges from lowland rivers, bridges, waterfalls and lakes to ridges, high passes and peaks.
We intend to organise two or three levels/paces of walking each day. Nevertheless, you are free to do as you please, either doing other things or just resting! For the non-walkers, or those taking a rest day, there are many interesting things to do around and about the centre.
We choose to organise our own catering to help keep the costs low and helping our cook for one day with cooking, washing up and cleaning is fun and won’t cut your walking time. We look forward to repeating the success of previous holidays.
For those joining us you will receive the Final Information by post or look out for it online. The key things you need to do are:
1- Help us put people in touch to share lifts
2- You will need to bring a towel and bed linen (or you can rent this)
