A Little of Keswick’s History

With mysterious Neolithic monuments, enough natural copper to build Elizabeth I’s warships, and surrounding landscape so beautiful it inspired Lakeland’s most famous poets, Keswick has a rich history. The Borrowdale Valley has been a popular spot with visitors since affluent tourists starting coming to the area in the 1700’s after a number of writers published works enthusing about Keswick’s natural landscape.

If you are interested in getting to know more about the history of Keswick and the surrounding area, a good place to start is the prominent Moot Hall, a Grade II listed building which now houses the Tourist Information Centre. To see the world’s first pencil, which was allegedly discovered by a shepherd in Seathwaite, pay a visit to the Cumberland Pencil Museum, easily accessible from the A66.

Beatrix Potter spent a great deal of time around Keswick in the late 19th century, and inspiration for her enchanting sketches and stories can be traced around the town. Fans of her books should pay a visit to her house of 30 years, Hill Top near Sawrey, which is a 25-minute drive from Keswick.

Getting There

As a hub of the Northern Lakes, arriving at your Keswick getaway is easy. If you are travelling by car, the town is situated just 20 minutes along the A66 trunk road from Junction 40 of the M6 motorway.

Served by the West Coast Mainline, Penrith connects the rest of the UK with the North Lakes by rail. For visitors arriving by train, you can hop on a bus or hire a car directly from the station, and you will be in Keswick in under 40 minutes.

During your stay with Lakelovers in Keswick, many of the nearby towns and best loved beauty spots are within easy reach. Following some of the Lake District’s most scenic routes, you are only a 20-minute drive from the beautiful Aira Force Falls, the picturesque village of Grasmere and the hamlet of Seathwaite, which is an excellent starting point to climb the lofty heights of Great Gable. There are also extensive network of buses serving the area if you would prefer to take a backseat and enjoy the view.

If you are looking for a challenge, why not take on The Cumbria Way. This 70-mile linear long distance footpath traverses the heart of the Lake District National Park and has a stop in Keswick. Our Keswick cottages make inviting retreats to rest your weary legs and recuperate before continuing on your way.

Out and About

Whether you’re looking for an action-packed break filled with exhilarating experiences in the wild terrains around the town, or a relaxing getaway nestled amongst some of the most breathtaking panoramas in the UK, you won’t be short of things to do in Keswick.

For adventurers, there is an abundance of activities to choose from in and around Keswick. Keen walkers will delight in the proximity Keswick has to the four highest mountains in England. Leave Keswick via Fitz Park and you will find a clear stoney path that eventually leads you to the wild summit of Skiddaw. On a clear day, the views are panoramic from the top; you may be able to spot the Scottish Mountains over the Solway Firth and the Isle of Man in the Irish Sea. Cat Bells is a more manageable fell to hike but provides equally magnificent panoramas over Derwentwater and the Borrowdale Valley.

Whinlatter Forest has a whole range of outdoor fun on offer and is a 15-minute drive away from Keswick. With its purpose-built Altura trails, Whinlatter is a mountain biker’s paradise, but it also provides something for all ages and abilities. Nature-lovers will enjoy the walking trails that take you on a quest to spot the resident red squirrels and roe deer, while kids will love the orienteering courses that lead them on an adventure to find the Gruffalo. Whinlatter Forest is also home to a Go Ape, where the zip wires, obstacle courses and Tarzan swings make the perfect tree top adventure.

For a more tranquil getaway, let yourself be pampered at the beautiful health spa Oxley’s at Underscar. Set amidst parkland on the slopes of Skiddaw, this pristine retreat offers a haven of calm and tranquility where you can enjoy hot stone massages, revitalizing facial treatments and detoxifying body wraps. If you’re staying in a cottage in Keswick that sleeps 8-9, why not take your group on an indulgent afternoon at the spa to recharge your batteries?

If you are in need of a little retail therapy, Keswick’s bustling town centre is an excellent location to do some Lakeland shopping. The high street has managed to retain its independence and isn’t overcrowded by the usual commercial giants. Instead, Market Square is a treasure trove of independent businesses selling unique gifts, speciality food and an impressive selection of outdoor clothing and equipment. Be sure to check out the weekly markets, which have been bringing people to the town for the past 700 years.

Whatever your pace, a trip to Keswick wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the town’s most revered sight, Derwentwater. Thousands of visitors flock to admire this stunning mile-wide lake and the magnificent views that can be enjoyed from Walla Crag and Friar’s Crag. Slopes of the surrounding fells rise dramatically from the lakeshore and it’s easy to see why this is one of the most picturesque places in the Lake District. Explore the lake on foot or grab a paddle and glide out to one of the four National Trust owned islands.

Eating and Drinking, Wining and Dining

With so many wonderful dining options in Keswick, you may find yourself coming up with your own ‘culinary itinerary’ to squeeze in a visit to all of the best-loved eateries in town. For a hearty breakfast with friends, try Merienda on Main Street. Luckily for late-risers, they serve their delicious brunches until 3pm. If you are visiting with children in tow, little ones will love their boiled eggs and soldiers.

For a Great British treat after a day in the great outdoors, head to The Old Keswickian, a celebrated fish and chip shop in Market Square. Don’t be put off by the round-the-clock queues, this longstanding fish ‘n’ chip restaurant serves up exceptional fish suppers, homemade pies, and the kind of perfectly-cooked chips that will have you coming back for more.

If you’re after something a little fancier, pay a visit to Morrel’s. Set on Lake Road between the bustling market and Derwentwater, this delightful restaurant serves imaginative cuisine in an informal setting. Serving mouthwatering meals, from pan-fried venison to twice-baked crab soufflé, Morrell’s is the perfect place to spend a special evening during your stay in Keswick.

Keswick also has a range of fantastic venues to enjoy a few drinks in the evening. The Dog and Gun is home to eight cask ales on tap and a surprisingly extensive cocktail menu, whilst you can enjoy some fine wine and live music at Café Bar 26.

There is so much to do and see in Keswick but if you think there is a more perfect location to enjoy in the Lake District then check out some of our other delightful properties in other regions of the Lakes.
