Keswick is situated to the north of the Lake District National Park between Skiddaw mountain and Derwentwater and  boasts a good range of pubs, cafés, restaurants, galleries and shops and interesting attractions, such as the Puzzling Place, the Cumberland Pencil Museum, Keswick Brewery, pitch and putt  at Hope Park.  On the Lake there are rowboats for hire and the Keswick Launch provides a water bus service around the lake.  Why not take the launch across the lake and then walk up Catbells and see if you can find Mrs Tiggy Winkle, the Hedgehog washer woman in Beatrix Potters the Tale of Mrs Tiggy Winkle.

With an extensive selection of restaurants and cafés eating out in Keswick is a very pleasant experience and evening entertainment can be found at the Theatre by the Lake,  our local  Alhambra Cinema or there is usually live music at one or more of the town's pubs.

Using Keswick as a base, there are a great range of outdoor activities available such as fellwalking, rock climbing, gill scrambling, mountain biking or paragliding, and water sports such as wild swimming, windsurfing or sailing.

Mick has been coming to the Lake District walking since he was a boy and is very knowledgeable about the area and is very happy to advise on routes.  He has completed 196 Wainwrights and aims to finish them this year and Sue is slowly catching him up.   
 
Mick is also a keen cyclist, both on road bike and mountain bike and again will happily share his experiences and knowledge of routes
 
Mick and Sue have a large selection of maps and walks which guests are welcome to borrow
