Keswick on Derwentwater (pop. 5000) is an attractive small town, centrally situated in the northern half of the Lake District and close to the border with Scotland. Easily accessible by road and rail this compact region of less than 200 square miles (500km2 ) contains the best of lake and mountain landscapes.

This area is, above all, for the active person. There are walks and climbs for all standards; from the high 900m mountains Helvellyn and Scafell to guided walks and gentle rambles. While Derwentwater has a launch service and two small marinas, neighbouring Bassenthwaite Lake, Buttermere, Crummock Water and Thirlmere are quieter but easily accessible by the many lakeside paths. Keswick’s Hope and Fitz Parks offer bowls, tennis and park golf, and a spectacular 18 hole golf course is nearby at Threlkeld. There are biking, riding and gliding facilities as well, so little reason for inactivity.
