Like a perfect Long Island Iced Tea, it skips you along the Central Lakes to Keswick in the North, in utter bliss.

There’s superyachts and sporting elite; underwater tunnels for discovering Lake Windermere’s hidden aquatic life; relaxing lake cruises and sandy beach coves; the Central Lakes has one key ingredient only found here – a delightful welcome like no-other.
