Bassenthwaite Lake Station
Simon and Diana Parums have transformed the defunct railway station at Bassenthwaite Lake into one of the county’s most individual tourist attractions.
Since buying the station in 2019 they have carried out a painstaking renovation of the station, restoring it to its former glory to create a cafe and events space and making use of replica railway carriages for seating.
Alongside the cafe, the couple have been able to pursue their love of nature and conservation, planting over 3000 new trees on the site, cultivating hedges, restoring a silted-up pond and sowing a wildflower meadow on land at the rear of the station.
