History of the hotel

The Manor of Bassenthwaite (where the Hall now stands) was given to the illegitimate brother of Allan, the Second Lord of Allerdale and Gospatrick took on the name de Bassenthwaite. Another family, the Highmore family, who owned the Hall 1540 to 1748, offered hospitality to the infamous Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Duke of Cumberland during the 1745 uprising at their other residence in Carlisle. In 1748 James Spedding, Squire to Lord Egremont of Cockermouth Castle acquired the Hall and it stayed in his family for three generations until it was sold to Sir Frederick Fletcher-Vane in 1796. This family extended the Hall in 1817 by building a courtyard, a chapel and partially extending the building towards the lake. Four generations of the Fletcher-Vane family resided here until 1850 when it was sold to Mr. Boustead.

Dogs Policy

Dogs are allowed in the hotel but not the public areas. There is a charge of £15.00 per dog per night which includes doggy bag which contains welcome letter, waste disposal bags and treats.  They have recently opened a small shop specifically for pooches with water canisters, balls, treats and anything else that you need to help your dog enjoy their stay.  In addition to our dog-friendly rooms, they also welcome well-behaved dogs in the Hall Lounge from 10.00am until 6.00pm, so everyone can relax together. They even have a doggy hairdryer available if your pet gets wet after a Lakeland walk!
