Use the launch to enjoy the beauty of Derwentwater. Really enjoyable walk from Hawes End to Lodore then on to see the falls, lunch and then back in the direction so you go all the way round. If the weather is good you can get on and off the boat as often as you like but once back at your... More

We walked the Derwentwater circuit starting from Keswick, which gives spectacular views of the lake from all directions. Autumn is a particularly lovely time to see all the golden colours of the mountains and trees. You can hop on a steamer if you get tired walking all the way round, although this was not possible the day we did it... More

This lake is stunningly beautiful. It has all the charm you hope for in the Lake District: subtle colours that change with the light, gentle rolling hills. It is easy enough to get to on foot from the town or by car. There are parks close by, one of them right on the lake itself. I would not miss visiting... More

The boat ride is scenic and well worth the fare. To get the most out of the trip, take the boat almost to the end, get off and hike back and then ride a later boat back to Keswick town wharf.

We are slowly ticking the lakes, meres and waters of Cumbria of our mental list. Having been to Keswick on many occasions we finally ventured down to the water and what a lovely peaceful place it is. Large car park close by (you can pick one of the other car parks in town and enjoy a wander first). It was... More
