A Little of Keswick’s History

As a hub of the Northern Lakes, Keswick has a rich history dating back to the middle ages, but there is some mystery surrounding the town’s earlier settlements. On a plateau surrounded by fells sits the ancient Castlerigg stone circle, said to be one of the most impressive prehistoric monuments in Britain. A trip to admire the beauty and romance of the site against the backdrop of Helvellyn and High Seat will leave you in awe.
In the 13th century, Edward I granted a charter for Keswick’s market, which has maintained a continuous 700-year existence. The market still operates today and you can browse local produce at the traditional weekly market in Market Square on a Saturday, while a craft market specialising in Made in Cumbria products is held on Thursdays.
Keswick experienced a period of prosperity in the 1500’s, thanks to the landscape’s wealth of natural resources. The valley’s deposits of copper, slate, graphite and peat made the area an ideal location for mining. The nearby Honister Slate Mine is the last working slate mine in England and provides a thrilling day out where guests can take part in a number of exhilarating activities in and around the mine.

Getting There

Keswick is very well connected with the rest of the country, and arriving at your Keswick cottage is straight forward, no matter how you choose to travel. Keswick enjoys a position at the point where all the routes meet, making it a fantastic base from which to explore the rest of Lake District.
By car, you will find Keswick just off the A66, a 20-minute drive from Junction 40 of the M6. The West Coast mainline connects the main cities of Britain with the Northern Lakes so you can travel easily by train to the nearby towns of Penrith and Carlisle. From those railway stations, you can jump on a bus, hop in a taxi or choose from a range of hire cars to get you to your holiday cottage in Keswick in 40 minutes or less.
From your base in the bustling town of Keswick, you are well-placed to explore the stunning natural beauty and charming little villages in the area. There are a number of picturesque towns close by that are easy to reach. The idyllic village of Grange sits at the jaws of the Borrowdale and is home to the iconic double-arched bridge over the River Derwent. The second largest lake in the Lake District, Ullswater is a 30-minute drive away, where you can admire the splendour of its position amidst some of the finest Lakeland fells.

Out and About

The heart of Keswick town centre is based around Market Square, a pedestrianised zone which is enjoyable to explore by foot. You won’t be able to miss in the dominance of The Moot Hall, an imposing Grade II listed building that has previously been a prison, a courthouse and a museum. Retail therapy is surprisingly diverse for a small town, with a whole host of independent retailers offering books, antiques, jewellery as well as clothes and gifts.

Keswick is home to two public parks for visitors to enjoy. With its beautifully tended gardens, Hope Park is a particularly popular spot and you can stroll from the town, through its tranquil flower gardens down to the shores of the serene Derwentwater.

Derwentwater is Keswick’s jewel in the crown. The mile-wide lake sits against the backdrop of a range of stunning fells. Cat Bells and Walla Crag rise above the shores and there are a number of picturesque viewpoints to take in. The lake itself can be enjoyed in a number of ways to suit everyone. Whether you fancy taking a cruise from one of the 7 lakeshore jetties, hiring a kayak or rowing boat, or packing a picnic and walking the 8-mile circumference of the lake, Derwentwater is a must-see attraction in the town. For some enchanting evening entertainment, see a show at the Theatre by the Lake.

Derwentwater is just one of 6 beautiful lakes studded around countryside near Keswick. Visit Crummock Water for its panoramas of the dramatic slopes of Melbreak. Nature lovers should include Bassenthwaite Lake on their itineraries; there is an abundance of wildlife and the shores are now a nesting place for breeding ospreys.
For people keen to immerse themselves in the natural beauty of the Lake District, Keswick is an ideal location and your holiday cottage will have some of the region’s best loved walks on its doorstep. From the gentle rambles up the fells of Grizedale Pike and Castle Crag to the more challenging heights of Skiddaw and Blencathra, there is a route to suit you. Mountain-bikers will delight in the spectacular Altura trails of Whinlatter Forest and climbers will be in their element on the wild crags of Great Gable and Scafell.

The Square Orange is a continental cafe bar in the centre of Keswick serving inventive stone baked pizzas and a delectable range of tapas. Its selection of fine wines, weekly live music and collection of board games make the cafe a lovely place to while away your evening.
