Beautiful views, friendly helpful staff, five minute walk to large supermarket and about 8 or 10 minute walk into Keswick. The situation of this site is hard to beat, fantastic and all the facilities kept very clean, we will go back to this site.

Our friends got married and hired the launch for 1 hour where we got to take the sights of beautiful Keswick from the water. Definitely recommend it!

One hour launch cruises, where you get a taste of the lake. Children and adults all loved it. Easy to get to, parking at the side if you can get on!

We hired a rowing boat for an hour and paddled round the lake, would have been a little more relaxing if we didnt have to watch out for the ferry passing every 20 mins and making sure we werent in its way, was a bit cold on the lake, so didnt actually stay out for the full half hour, probably...

It is beautiful, stunning and complete with woods and hill surrounding. If possible on a sunny day watch sunset it is mind blowing. It has ducks Geese and Swans to make the picture perfect. Not many sailors obstructing views. Near the piers some hotels or eateries are there.

Wonderful walks along the lakeshore. Walk south out of town, and find the trail. Very quiet and relaxing.

Well accessible from Keswick town, an approximate ten minutes’ walk from the town centre. I recommend visiting the Keswick Clock Tower first, where the visitor centre is located; the staff will gladly show you the path to get to the lake.
