We are coming to the end of a wonderful year on the Park, and wish all our customers, staff and friends a Merry Christmas and Happy 2016!  Whilst enjoying our merriment however, we have been a little affected by Storm Desmond!  Although this will cause a slight delay in opening next year, we have been very fortunate compared to all those very badly affected in and around Keswick and Cumbria.  So, we will continue to send our good wishes to all and provide an update in the New Year.  Best Wishes from all the Team at Bassenthwaite!
