Your Home from Home in Keswick, the Lake District

Derwentwater, Skiddaw and Keswick

 

The market town of Keswick is situated in the Northern Lake District right next to Skiddaw the forth highest mountain in the Lake district. Right beside the beautiful shores of Derwentwater and with the stunning Borrowdale valley heading towards Honister pass means that Keswick could not be better situated. Sailboard on DerwentwaterThere are walks galore in every direction and many of the famous Wainwright can be started direct from the town or with a short bus ride. Every Tuesday and Saturday there is a market in the town centre plus additional seasonal markets throughout the year with the annual Christmas Victorian Fayre a particular favourite.

Keswick is often referred to as the “Outdoor Adventure Capital of the UK” and it is easy to see why. There are some fantastic attractions in and around the town that will undoubtedly capture the imagination of all visitors both young or old. With extensive walks, boating or kayaking, climbing (outdoor or indoor including an ice climbing wall) cycling, photography, wildlife trails as well as parks, crazy golf, bowls, tennis, leisure pool and cinema there is certainly no shortage of activities. There are comprehensive cycle paths, both on and off road, with some awesome tracks through Winlatter Forest as well as Go Ape in the trees. If you lack the confidence to go it alone there are numerous outdoor pursuit organisations that are more than willing to take you on endless exciting activities.

For visitors who prefer something a little less energetic fortunately there is a good selection of shops as well as plenty of café’s, bistro’s, bars and restaurants. A short stroll away there is also the ever popular Theatre by the Lake with a varied programme of performances.

Windermere and Ambleside are only a short drive or bus ride away and further to the North there is Hadrian’s wall, Carlisle and the Scottish borders. The coast is not too far either with access to quiet beaches such as St Bees or Allonby which are popular alternatives to the bustle of town life and the local mountainous scenery.
