Derwentwater and Keswick
Set like a jewel in the finest mountain scenery of the Lake District, Keswick is an ideal base for exploring the Lakes or Borders. It is also a great place to make the most of your evening having a wide selection of pubs, cafes, wine bars, and restaurants, as well as the Theatre-by-the-Lake, a cinema, and Hope Park with its gardens, pitch and putt, and crazy golf courses. Being situated right on the shores of Derwentwater, the lake is just a stroll away from your accommodation, and there are boats available for hire and a regular launch takes cruises around the lake. Accommodation is in Cumbria Tourist Board recommended guest houses or hotels carefully chosen by us so that we can be sure you have a very pleasant, comfortable and quiet stay. We provide a packed lunch on those days when we are out on the hill and the range of evening dining options available in Keswick will satisfy any palate or budget.
