It's a lovely circuit walk around one of the most beautiful leaked you will come across... If you are not a regular walker.. Feel free to quit half way and take a jus back, but be mindful that you cannot exit anywhere you feel like :-) ... That said, it's an easy long walk

We had 2 nights camping at this campsite and were extremely impressed by it. The views are stunning (we were camped right on the edge of the lake). Showers, toilets etc were pristene. Cannot be faulted and we will definitely come back. Booths (upmarket grocery store for those not familiar) is a short walk away for provisions, as is Keswick... More

If in the area you have to come and have a walk or boat ride around some of this lake. It is just lovely. There is a large car park by the theatre, it is not cheap and only takes coins so bring a stash of cash.

Fab scenery and excellent walks. Centrally situated for fresh air and wandering. Well marked routes to follow and hostelries within reach of even the slowest of walkers.

A lovely lake with stunning views of the fells. Take a motor launch to Borrowdale or keep fit with a rowing boat. Lovely walks along the lake shore. Ample Car parking

Walked part way round the lake with my 2 Border Terriers on New Years Eve in the most horrible weather imaginable but you know what it was still lovely.The lake was more like The North Sea so it was nice to see it looking so rough yet natural.Will never get sick of going here.

It was such a lovely sunny day and it we're not massive walkers so we thought a cruise around Derwent water on the Lake Launches would be nice. It was devine, really relaxing. A great way to sample more of the fantastic scenery without working too hard!
