OUTDOOR PURSUITS

Many of our guests simply enjoy taking boat across the lake. Discounted tickets for the Keswick launch are available from reception. Derwent Water is often considered the birthplace of the National Trust, as well as the area’s numerous links to Beatrix Potter and her famous tales.
The area offers a wide selection of hikes of all levels, direct from the hotel doorstep, so you can leave your car behind. For rock climbing enthusiasts, there is a good choice of climbing sites nearby. Just mention when booking if you would like to book a session with a local Mountain Instructor.
