Just north of Derwent Water and merely a stone's throw from Windermere as well as the Cumbrian coast, Keswick is ideally situated both for those who want to be active, as well as those who wish to take it easy. The Lake District is renowned for its wonderful scenery, with rolling hills and unspoilt woodlands providing excellent opportunities for cycling, hiking and climbing and more. The nearby lakes are also ideal for water activities such as sailing, canoeing or simply taking a leisurely cruise to spot some wildlife.
Keswick itself receives many thousands of visitors every year and so is well set up for tourism with plenty of accommodation, places to eat and things to do - from shopping to simply having a pint in a traditional English pub. The towns of Cockermouth , Ambleside and Whitehaven are only a short distance away should you wish to explore the region, and so in the Lake District you'll never be at a loss for things to see and places to go. If you prefer to stay put, then Keswick is home to an abundance of heritage attractions too, from the prehistoric monument at Castlerigg to the Grade II listed Ormathwaite Hall.
