Our readers find inspiration in capturing the only ‘lake’ in the Lake District

Bassenthwaite Lake lies at the foot of Skiddaw and a mile away from the small village that shares its name, the A66 runs along the western side of the lake making it easily accessible for a quick passing visit.

The surrounding fells and peaks serve as a perfect backdrop to capturing shots of the lake. If you fancy the hike, they also give you fantastic panoramic views of Bassenthwaite Lake and the surrounding area.

Wildlife lovers and bird spotters flock to Bassenthwaite Lake to see if they are lucky enough to catch a sight of the ospreys that were reintroduced to this area at the turn of the century, as well as other birds such as herons and comorants.

The Pheasant Inn at Bassenthwaite Lake is well worth a visit for a quick pint or a great meal after a day exploring the countryside. Keswick is around seven miles away and is a better option to base your trip from here if you’re looking for a wider choice of amenities.

Why don’t you upload your Bassenthwaite Lake photos to the reader photo gallery?
