About this property

Derwentwater is a fantastic base for family holidays, offering two marinas, canoe and rowing boat hire and popular cruises. Surrounding the lake is a welcoming cafe, a picturesque walled garden, friendly pub, and the bustling market town of Keswick, just 2 miles from the property. Here you will find a host of independent shops and eateries to explore including a celebrated bookshop and seasonal Victorian Fayre and Christmas Market. For cyclists, Whinlatter Forest, 3.5 miles away, offers a wealth of adventurous trails as well, while excellent road cycling can be enjoyed along the Honister, Newlands and Whinlatter passes.
