Nestled on the shores of Derwentwater in the Lake District, Keswick has something for everyone. The Lake District offers both tranquillity and the opportunity for activity and adventure.

Keswick itself has an array of small shops where you can buy anything from your everyday essentials to antiques and unique gifts. There are also plenty of outdoor activities and water sports to be enjoyed in the stunning surroundings, or, you could just find somewhere to sit back and enjoy the breathtaking scenery.

Hope Park, which is located between Keswick town centre and Derwentwater Lake, is very popular with both locals and visitors. With formal gardens, a woodland walk and a stream, as well as a 9 hole pitch and putt and a 18 hole putting green, this is a beautiful place in which to while away the hours.

Lying to the west of Keswick is Whinlatter Forrest, England's only real mountainous forest area. With walking and cycling trails and a multitude of other activities for all ages, this is a great family day out. An onsite visitor's centre provides maps and souvenirs, whilst the bike shop both rents out and sells bikes and equipment and when you're completely worn out, enjoy a bite to eat in the cafe.

For a day on the water try Keswick Canoe Centre. Offering a range of activities including wilderness activities, river trips and canoeing, this is a great place for adventure.

There are no limits to what Keswick and the Lake District can offer. With activities for youngsters and adventure for the older ones, this is a great family holiday location.

Portinscale at the foot of Derwentwater is neatly sandwiched between Keswick, only a mile away to the east, Bassenthwaite Lake just to the north and Whinlatter Forest Park to the west. All the essentials including a local pub serving bar meals, a restaurant, a tea room and plenty of parking spaces can be found in the village.

There are two marinas on Derwentwater where sailing, windsurfing and canoeing are offered, either for instruction or hire and there is also a jetty where you can catch the motor launch that circuits the lake.

The beautiful Newlands Valley, one of the Lake Districts best kept secrets, is a few minutes walk away. This lush green valley has many opportunities for keen walkers with a great choice of gentle river strolls or more challenging all day hikes! The circuit of the Newlands Valley is one of the best ridge walks in the Lake District. The ever changing scenery and the many interesting sights along the way make this one of Wainwrights most famous and enjoyable walks. Newlands was once a favorite with Beatrix Potter. Here she set the scene for some of her well loved children’s classics such as 'The Tale of Mrs Tiggywinkle'. Sketches of Catbells, Skelgill and Little Town all feature in the novel. The Valley also has a great local pub, The Swinside Inn and an award winning restaurant Swinside Lodge.

This area is ideally located for mountain biking and cycling, the C2C cycle route passes through Portinscale and if you’ve forgotten your bicycle don’t worry; there are a number of bicycle hire shops in nearby Keswick. For the walkers the nearby fells of Catbells, Maiden Moor, Knott Rigg and Causey Pike and beckon.
