Lake Derwent Water in the Northern Lake District is as pretty as it is dramatic. Surrounded by stunning scenery and home to sheltered coves and wildlife, it has much to offer. To its west rise the fells of Cat Bells. To the east is the fantastic viewpoint of Friar’s Crag, jutting into the lake. And its southern foot is the entrance to the beautiful Borrowdale valley. Lake Derwent Water is Keswick’s local lake and only a ten-minute walk from the centre of town.


Nestled in the peaceful north-west corner of Lake Derwent Water, the accommodation is literally on the banks of the lake, at the marina, and has wonderful views out across the lake to the drama of the surrounding mountains and fells of the Borrowdale Valley. Inside, there is a spacious and comfortable lounge with views over the lake, and an open kitchen-diner where you can share a meal and discuss the day’s adventures. Outside, there is a sunny patio, with open views of the lake, providing a tranquil retreat after a day exploring the local area.

  • Bedroom 1 is a twin room with ensuite shower*.
  • Bedroom 2 is in a self contained, separate studio, which has twin beds and ensuite shower*.

*The bedrooms and en-suites on this holiday are fairly small but this is more than made up for by the gigantic views!

The Northern Lakes offer plenty of activities, whatever the weather. From shore-side walks, boat rides on the lake, short walks in the hills, and there’s even the option of some assisted on-site watersports, such as canoeing. The sheltered coves and islands, along with an abundance of wildlife, make this a fantastic lake to explore by boat. So, if you love sailing, or just being by the water, this is the trip for you!
