Lovely walk

The views & tranquility. The views are stunning, changes ever second. The wooden carved hands are worth a look the kids will love them.

My recent visit was the first walking trip I had taken. Derwentwater is beautiful and has many beautiful walks. I walked up Cat Bells and Dodd Mountain. Both walks had beautiful views and I would recommend then. Keswick has plenty of reasonably priced eating establishments. Boat trips on Derwentwater give you outstanding views. I will certainly be going back.

Surrounded by mountains this huge lake nestles alongside Keswick and is close to Bassenthwaite lake (thought to have been joined many years ago). Derwentwater has many activities for the family to enjoy and there is parking and access at various points around the lake.

Fantastic area to walk, we've been back so many times. We even got engaged on a hill overlooking Derwentwater as there are so many beautiful views to be found! Take a boat trip and start your walk from one of the various pretty stops around the lake.

The cruise on the lake is awesome and offers excellent views for photography. The boat stops at various landing stages around Derwentwater. One can embark or disembark at any stop of your choice with a single ticket that you would have bought. There are excellent walks and hikes from these stops and once you are done, you can come back... More

Calm beautiful waters, surrounded by breath-taking scenery. Boats to hire (we didn't) "beaches" to while away hours watching clouds roll over the fells and a lovely walk to Friars Crag.
