A Little of Keswick’s History

Keswick’s recent recorded history dates back to the middle ages, but the Neolithic settlement at Castlerigg is evidence that communities have been living around the town for at least 4000 years. During a hike up to one of the most impressive prehistoric monuments in Britain, you will find yourself enveloped by the mysterious romance of the stone circle against the backdrop of Helvellyn and High Seat.

Keswick grew in prosperity during the reign of Elizabeth I, who was keen to draw on the Borrowdale Valley’s natural resources to strengthen her warships. For years, the area was mined for its considerable deposits of copper, slate and graphite. Take a trip to the last working mine in England, Honister Slate Mine. Join a guided tour of the mine or, if you have nerves of steel, you can take on the Via Ferrata, where you will climb vertical cliff edges and scramble across a high exposure bridge.

As you admire the beauty of the region, it will come as no surprise to you that Keswick was a popular haunt of romantic Lake Poets Wordsworth, Coleridge and Southey and together their works captured the beauty of Derwentwater and beyond.

Getting There

Travelling to your Keswick cottage is easy with the West Coast Main Line connecting the nearby towns of Penrith and Carlisle with London, Glasgow, and other parts of the UK.

Keswick sits just a 20 minute drive from Junction 40 of the M6 motorway and, with the A66 passing through the town center, the market town is easily accessible by car too. Once you have reached your destination, exploring the region’s best loved spots is an easy way to get around. The picturesque village of Grasmere, where you will find William Wordsworth’s Dove Cottage is just 20 minutes away, whilst Ambleside, the village at the head of Lake Windermere is reachable by car in half an hour.

Keswick is well-serviced by local buses, which are really handy when it comes to planning linear walks in the area. The Keswick Launch, Derwentwater’s passenger boat, is a handy and enjoyable way for tired legs to get around the lake and can be caught from any of the lakeshore jetties.

Out and About

With so much to do and see, a luxury getaway in Keswick can be as action-packed or laid-back as you like. Whatever your pace, visitors to town can’t help but fall in love with the beautiful Lakeland scenery that sits around every corner.

If you are in the mood to explore on foot, you are in a fantastic location. Within easy reach of Keswick are the 4 highest mountains in England: Scafell Pike, Scafell, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. And we must not forget to mention the 6 stunning lakes nearby: Derwentwater, Bassenthwaite Lake, Thirlmere, Buttermere, Crummock Water and Ullswater.

A walk that suits all abilities with panoramas that will take your breath away, is the ascent up Cat Bells from Hawes End. Alfred Wainwright described Cat Bells as one of his favourites, and for good a reason. Although the fell is modest in height, the views over Derwentwater and the Borrowdale Valley are absolutely spectacular. Treat yourself on the way back down with a deep-filled toasted sandwich or a decadent slice of cake at the ever-popular Chalet Tearooms in the hamlet of Portinscale.

There are plenty of other ways to explore this part of the Lake District if you are looking for an adventure. Whether you choose to mountain-bike through Whinlatter Forest, windsurf across Derwentwater, scramble up Honister Ghyll or rock-climb at Shepherd’s Crag, Keswick is a thrill-seeker’s paradise.

A stroll through the pedestrianised Market Square will give you a flavour of everything else that this bustling town has to offer. Day and night, the streets are brimming with things to do. Browse the Lakeland local produce and pick up artisan gifts at Keswick’s 700-year old market. Take in the town’s history and culture at Keswick Museum and Art Gallery. Catch a movie at the 103-year-old theatre-style cinema, The Alhambra, whose quaint décor and old-style confectionary stand are as much of a draw as the blockbusters it shows.

Eating and Drinking, Wining and Dining

You could spend weeks eating your way through Keswick’s best cafes, pubs and restaurants. Many of our Self Catering Keswick cottages come with state-of-the-art kitchens, but you may find you don’t have time to cook as there is an array of culinary delights to sample in town. Whether you’re in the mood for proper English grub at a homely pub served by a roaring fire, a trendy brunch accompanied by cups of aromatic coffee, or a fine dining experience enjoyed in a more formal setting, Keswick has an eatery to suit you.

There are plenty of charming Lakeland pubs around Keswick, and The Dog & Gun is one of the best. With exposed timber beams, a great selection of cask ales and a menu of hearty food, this pub is a perfect place to warm up after a day on the fells.

If you are looking for something to eat on the go, try Bryson’s of Keswick, whose fresh bread baked daily and speciality homemade cakes are available to take away.

Keswick has a fantastic range of restaurants to choose from if you fancy something more international. Casa Bella is an incredibly popular venue, with visitors enjoying excellent-value Italian food that bursts with flavour. Occupying the front room of the Shemara Guest House, A Taste of Thailand serves generous portions of deliciously authentic Thai food. You are welcome to bring along your own wine and beer, as the restaurant does not have a license.

We think Keswick is a fantastic destination for a getaway in the Lake District, but Lakelovers also have a range of luxury cottages in many of the other best-loved villages and towns in the region. Take a look at the other locations we offer and you are sure to find something that suits your needs perfectly.
