Accommodation Details

The Big Pink House is a detached self catering group accommodation property. The house is located near the village of Mealsgate, just north of Bassenthwaite Lake and Keswick.

Pool Table Room & Snug

Adjacent to the second lounge, this room has a pool table; great for keeping everyone amused, plus why not set up a tournament? Adjacent is the snug with TV and DVD player.
