Keswick out and about

Situated in the centre of Keswick is the very well known building of Moot Hall, built in 1571. Traditionally this was a meeting place to decide local issues. However over time it has been a Prison, Tourist Information Centre, Art Gallery and of course an assembly building. Today it is home to the National Park Information Centre. It can be found in the heart of Main Street where you really can’t help but notice its significance to the town.

Thursdays and Saturdays are market day where you must take in the buzz of this fantastic outdoor market. It surrounds the Moot Hall and was voted the best in the country in 2015.

The small market town of Keswick has a rich history. From its early days as the Lake District’s first ‘resort for the gentry visiting the great romantic lakes and mountains’ to the popular tourist centre it is today. Mystic stone circles are one of the key historical features of the Keswick landscape, situated in the Castlerigg area of the town. The impressive stones of Castlerigg stone circle sit atop the hillside. Some say they are very similar to the stone formation at Stonehenge. These are said to date back to between 3000 and 2500 BC. This area is well worth a visit during your holiday in Keswick.

Self-catering in Keswick is great fun as the market town offers a rich variety of shopping. One of very few towns left in England that has managed to avoid large commercial retail outlets, in the bustling town of Keswick you’ll find many exciting independent retailers, offering a variety of goods to browse and meander through. Keswick is also celebrated for its good food. They have an array of great traditional pubs offering local ale and pub grub, fine dining restaurants for special occasions. Plus plenty of cafés where you can sit out in the central area and watch the crowds pass by.

Walking Holidays

For all you walkers out there, Lakelovers have hand-picked the finest cottages in Keswick, placing you within a stone’s throw of some of the most loved walks in the region.

Alfred Wainwright once said that one of his favourite walks was Catbells, which is easy to access from Keswick and is a great walk for all ages. Catbells is one of the smaller fells in the Lakes but with views like no other and is a definite must-do when visiting Keswick.

Don’t forget pets are free with Lakelovers so bring your four-legged pal too, who will love running around the endless landscape and enjoying the Lakeland fresh air. We have over 150 dog friendly cottages across the Lake District, all to our high 3 – 5 star standard.

Keswick has been voted the winner of The Kennel Club’s most Dog Friendly town award. With its pedestrianised town centre and large array of dog friendly eateries it is a great choice for a dog friendly break away.

For those of you who want a bit more of a challenge, why not venture onto the largest and highest fells in the Keswick area? Meet Blencathra and Skiddaw, where you can enjoy climbing some of the oldest rocks in the Lakes. Allow a full days walk for both of these and make sure you bring appropriate clothing. The weather can change quickly on many of the Lake District tops.

Head south towards the often-quieter areas surrounding Grasmere, nestled close to the craggy Langdale valley. Here you’ll find more of your walkers’ paradise. You can easily access notorious Helvellyn and Scarfell Pike. As well as spot all-year-round climbing, bouldering and scrambling among the Langdale Pikes and surrounding quarries.

If you’re after some adventure whilst staying in Keswick, why not visit the famous Honistor Slate Mine? It is the last working mine in England and well known for producing the famous Lake District blue/green stone. You can take a guided tour of the mine and for those thrill seekers, have a go at Via Ferrata. Scale vertical cliff edges and scramble across high exposure bridges and cargo nets. Not for those who are afraid of heights! For the more faint-hearted, a visit on foot or bike to the beautiful Borrowdale Valley is not to be missed when staying in Keswick.

Keswick also has an array of other activities available during your stay. These include pony trekking, quad biking, walking, canoeing, rock climbing and many more.

For the writers amongst us, don’t miss a trip to home of the world’s first pencil, the Keswick Pencil Museum. You can also see the World’s longest pencil as well as visit the great Kids Art Studio. Plus see how WW2 spies smuggled maps in hollowed out 2Bs!
