From plenty of accessible parking to good access to Theatre on The Lake for coffee/facilities, Derwentwater has been very well thought out indeed for wheelchair users. There are some hills to negotiate up/down to Lake but these aren't insurmountable. The jetties have all been newly...More

Beautiful lake with stunning views. although the amenities are a bit sparse and 40p to spend a penny is a bit extreme

Derwentwater is lovely. It's nice to just sit and take in the scenery at Friars Crag, down by the lake itself or as a walk around the whole lake. I regularly take a steady stroll around the lake and it takes me around 3 hours

A very good lake which is a perfect spot for a picnic, also good for doing a bit of paddling and just having fun. Really good for a family day.

Stunning views and fabulous walks around the lake. Can't be beaten anywhere In the world. The sunshine helps though but even in the rain it is still Amazing.

Fab weather so decided to take a boat trip round the lake. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Watching others have fun on the water and the wildlife was good to see.

Top place to meander around. This started life as a picture on my university Accomodation room wall and it chilled me. I'd never visited. I've been here so many times since and the sense of calm and tranquility is always palpable.

We enjoyed both a boat tour of the lake and then later walked a good section of the lake. Both are very enjoyable as this is a special area and makes for an easy day after a day of fell walking. We met lots of...More

A glorious sunny day and I took a boat round Derwentwater at a cost of £10.50. It takes 50 minutes but stops in several places. You can get off and continue on a later boat. The Lake is very beautiful. For Beatrix Potter fans -...More

Lake District is a huge national park so not sure what you are asking. You can see the majesty of the area from the motorway too! Derwentwater is a huge lake and there are many areas you can view the lake from, have a picnic... More
