A varied walk with stunning views of the lake and the Jaws of Borrowdale, and some really good places for coffee, lunch or a pint! Try the Daffodil café in Portinscale . On a fine day you can sit on the terrace and enjoy a cup of tea whilst looking across the gardens to the lake. When you get to... More

We caught the launch to Lodore and then walked back to Keswick - an easy walk which took two hours with lots of stops to admire the view. Thoroughly recommended!

Liked this walk as you started and finished in Keswick centre. Nice stop at a water fall. Lunch stop at one of the many scenic points around Derwentwater. Good coffee stop in Portinscale.

Great walk to see the falls and up on top with fabulous views. Don't forget to take change for the national trust car parks. Quite expensive.

Everyone who comes to Keswick has to visit the Lake just to see its true beauty. Also go on the tour around the lake you will not be disapointed

Basically, it is the best lake in Lake District. When you drive around it you will see amazing views especially when you go on the top of the hill, fabulous. I loved it 👍

We spent several happy hours on the launch hopping off and walking to the next landing stage, then, hopping on and hopping off at another jetty and walking some more. Great

The scale of derwentwater is so manageable. Mountains or a beautiful, easy circular walk round it for the active, launch tours of the lake and a beautiful foreshore park and promenade for the less so, and Keswick for all the quirky gift shops, cafés restaurants and outdoor shops for back up.

We always go to Derwentwater but we park in the side streets in Keswick for free and walk there. Always geese and swans to feed and you can hire a row boat or go on a proper boat if you fancy. Terrain a little awkward for prams if you want to go right beside the lake but there's a big... More
