We are delighted to announce that Professor David Bellamy has named Bassenthwaite Lakeside Lodges one of the UK’s greenest places to take a holiday – and awarded it a special accolade for protecting the natural world.

Bassenthwaite Lakeside Lodges is now a proud holder of the David Bellamy Conservation Award Golden accolade which celebrates parks with forward-looking environmental policies.

We have also been awarded the 5 in 5 wild flower habitat badge for maintaining the wild flower habitats on the park and finding ways in which to increase these habitats.

Here at Bassenthwaite Lakeside Lodges we have installed and planted a bee garden in the grounds with high nectar-bearing blooms which provides valuable foraging resources for honey bees and other pollinators. This and all the hard work maintaining the wild flower habitats on site have enabled us to also become a Honey Bee friendly park.
