Explore The Lake District

Keswick-on-Derwentwater is an attractive and picturesque market town at the heart of the Northern Lakes, making an ideal base from which to explore the breathtaking scenery of the Lake District National Park or beyond to the Solway coast or Hadrian's wall. The peace and tranquility of this beautiful area can be enjoyed whatever time of the year you visit.

The 4000-year-old Stone Circle of Castlerigg lies to the east and overlooks Keswick in its lovely valley setting, nestling neatly between the massive peak of Skiddaw and the calm of Derwentwater. Early lead mining, quarrying and the growth of pencil manufacture have all played their part in a long and often dramatic history.

Around Keswick

Though small in size, Keswick offers a wide range of indoor and outdoor attractions for the visitor. Most of these are within a five minute walk of Holly Cottage and include the Cumberland Pencil Museum; Keswick Victorian Museum and Art & Gallery; Hope Park; Fitz Park; Friars Crag; The 'state of the art' Theatre by the Lake; the stylish 1920's Alhambra Cinema; Indoor Leisure Pool; Indoor Climbing Centre; Derwentwater Launches.

It is a place in England where you can see both red squirrels and Ospreys in their natural wild habitat.
