The self catering apartment is located in the heart of Keswick and therefore has a huge range of nearby restaurants, shops, galleries - infact everything you would expect from a vibrant Lake District market town.
On the shores of Derwentwater, a five minutes walk from Keswick town square, you will find the Keswick Launch Company which runs hourly cruises around the lake. There are six jetties where you can hop on and hop off or you can take a one way trip to the beginning of your day's walk. They also hire rowing and self drive motor boats.
Near to the lake is the famous Theatre by the Lake. Formerly the Blue Box, the Theatre by the Lake offers professional productions aswell as a cafe (run by Bryson's Bakery). There are three floors of exhibition space which house continual local and national art work (and other exhibitions).
There are many family related activities such as Cars of the Stars (where you can see many famous motor vehicles from films and television), Trotters World of Animals (where children can close to many farmyard and wild animals), the Cumberland Pencil museum (see the World's biggest pencil), the Keswick spa (swimming pool) and the Keswick Climbing wall.
For those interested in sports there is the nearby Keswick mountain bikes which has daily hire and many climbing shops which will provide you with information on the best climbs in the area. On nearby Derwentwater you can sail or windsurf and there are some great rapids for canoeing. Threlkeld golf course offers a stunning mountain course and welcomes visitors (see image at top of page).
There are some lovely Lakeland drives which can take you through some of the most spectacular scenery in Britain. The nearby hamlets and villages (Buttermere, Stonethwaite, Lorton, Mungrisedale etc) are all stunning in their own right. We supply information on some of the various walks and drives throughout the Northern Lake District.
The Northern Lake District has a reputation of having some of the finest - and most challenging - walks in Britain. From Keswick you can head out on foot or catch the local buses which go down the Borrowdale valley, towards the central lakes or over to Lorton. Alternatively you can catch the Keswick Launch to the other side of the lake and walk from there. There are many good pubs which provide wholesome Cumbrian meals and ale en route.
