A very beautiful area that we first visited on honeymoon back in 1984. It has changed little, and is still very special. A walk from High Lodore, up to Ashness Bridge, then on up alongside the stream to Watendlath has variety, views, and amazing peace. The Caffle House Café at Watendlath is a welcome place to refuel too. The area... More

With a beautiful town - Keswick a few minutes walk. Derwentwater has something for everyone. Hop on The Keswick Launch for a 50 minute boat trip or hop on hop off. Lots of water sports, walking

Enjoyed it. There was so much to see and do. Going round the lake is an easy walk and so worth the effort. We will be there again at te first chance we get

Like all the lakes, though Ullswater is still our favourite; Windermere is too crowded and you can't walk beside it - and even parking too expensive - let alone boat trips. All the area deserves exploring - suggest OUT OF SEASON!

The most accessible Lake with lots of walking options. The launch is a good way of getting round the Lake

The views and the peace and quiet here are great. You can either take a cruise on the lake or do what we did, sit beside the lake with the beautiful Mount Skiddaw as your back drop.

£9.75 for a 50-min slow cruise around the lake. Also allows you to hop-on-hop-off at any of the 6 stopping points for an hr each time before continuing your journey. However, not much to see at each stop. The stops are more suited to hikers, although many prefer starting their hikes from the boat launch area in Keswick. The walk... More

Looking for a cheap afternoon, with our 15 month old we decided to pop out of Keswick down to the lake. We avoided the tourist trap of the park area and drove further down to the National Trust Car Park at Dodd Wood (Free to Trust members) We followed the exit lane across the road, and with a minimal struggle...
