Art and Craft

Autumn Bassenfell Break Plus      16-20 October 2017  (Mon - Fri)        £250       

This is an ideal opportunity to come away and relax and to have half days doing some art, craft or photography. Each day there will be two activity options - one adventerous activity outdoors and another indoor art or craft option. The rest of the time there will be no pressure on you to be anywhere, go anywhere or do anything - the time is yours so you will be free to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Lake District: sightseeing, walking, or just sitting in our lounge enjoying a good book. So rest, enjoy fellowship and teaching and find time and space for yourself. A 'thought for the day' is presented at breakfast, and a guest speaker provides teaching each evening. Arrive on  Monday ready for an evening meal, and depart after breakfast on Friday.

web gallery 3Get Ready for Christmas          12-17 November 2017   (Sun - Fri)       £260       

Make the run up to Christmas less stressful by coming to Bassenfell. As well as the usual quality food and fellowship, there'll be chance to make your Christmas puddings, mincemeat and decorations, make and write Christmas cards and go Christmas shopping to the market towns of Keswick and Cockermouth. There'll also be a time of reflection each day giving you chance to focus on the true meaning and message of Christmas. Some photos of previous 'Get Ready for Christmas' holidays. Arrive on Sunday ready for an evening meal, and departure is after breakfast on Friday.
