“gentle walk around Derwentwater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

Liked this walk as you started and finished in Keswick centre. Nice stop at a water fall.
Lunch stop at one of the many scenic points around Derwentwater.
Good coffee stop in Portinscale.

“Lodore walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

Great walk to see the falls and up on top with fabulous views. Don't forget to take change for the national trust car parks. Quite expensive.

“beautiful lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Everyone who comes to Keswick has to visit the Lake just to see its true beauty. Also go on the tour around the lake you will not be disapointed

“The best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

Basically, it is the best lake in Lake District. When you drive around it you will see amazing views especially when you go on the top of the hill, fabulous. I loved it

“The most gentile lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

The scale of derwentwater is so manageable. Mountains or a beautiful, easy circular walk round it for the active, launch tours of the lake and a beautiful foreshore park and promenade for the less so, and Keswick for all the quirky gift shops, cafés restaurants and outdoor shops for back up.
