“beautiful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

This truly is a beautiful place to visit , we went in October and the colours of the trees were truly amazing.
A trip on the launch is a must and for going over to catbells it was great.there are lots of different wildfowl to see and nearly always somebody doing some form of watersport, a nice thing is you can walk the whole water in a day.

“SUPER DERWENTWATER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

What a lovely wall you can take around Derwentwater.
If you want to start with a nice amble go via Hope Park which is good to view as well, and then stroll along the lake to Friars Crag. Even if the weather is stormy there are some fantastic views to be seen, as we were lucky enough to have the sun peep out from dark clouds creating fantastic visual display of light and dark colours and shades. From Friars Crag then stroll around to the beach side and beyond to soak up the atmosphere and sights.

The National Trust operate a small shop here and if you have children you can buy bags of duck food for 50p or hire a boat.

“Beautiful boat trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Purchase a discounted ticket at the T&I in Keswick and take this lovely hop on hop off boat trip around Derwentwater. Hike up to Ashness gate, stop and have a wonderful meal at Lodore Falls Hotel and many other opportunities.

“Stunning scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

There's nothing to dislike about Derwent Water. The scenery must be some of the best in England. Walks in the area can be kept quite easy by following footpaths around the shore line or more difficult by taking the tracks and footpaths up into the surrounding woodland and onto the mountaing ridges rewarded by fantasic views.
