Worth stopping by if visiting Keswick. Very pretty lake. It can be tricky finding a slot to park (road is narrow with no stopping lane). About half way along heading south is a good little car park. Enjoy!

When we went to Derwent water it was lovely to here that they rented out boats. We took canoes and paddle boards and had a great time. We had so much fun we went twice!

Lovely lake. With beautiful Keswick adjoining the lake what’s not to like. On a clear day the views of the Skiddaw range are fantastic. It’s definitely worth a visit and one one lake that you can completely walk around.

Unbelivable views and tranquil area. Large car park. Very few people about so quiet amd relaxing. Jetty near car park walk was lovely to walk and hear the water underfoot. Well worth a visit.

Beware that if it is really wet the south end of a walk around the lake is likely to be flooded - go via Grange only adding a couple of miles

Really lovely lake and very good for families with young children or people with mobility issues as there is a car park right next to it and the paths are quite easily accessible unlike around some other lakes nearby. Stunning scenery all round.

Each time we come we are never disappointed with the difference the weather can bring to such a lovely place. Noticed a new path had been put through some of the walk. Guess this was to stop the lakeside erosion. Enjoyed all the walk and...More

We took Jeans, t shirts and waterproofs but could have got away with shorts and t shirts as even with the odd light rain shower it was very warm and as we are walkers, were out all day. Most people wear shorts but you still... More

There is plenty of good cycling around, but the actual lakeside route is mostly footpath not bridle way so strictly not for cyclists, how keen are you? There is a better route around Thirlemere which is partly minor road and... More
