The Derwentwater is a welcoming hotel set in its own picturesque grounds. From the elegant conservatory you can enjoy a very pleasant stroll down to the water, keeping a look out for the elusive deer and red squirrels along the way. If you are feeling energetic, a pleasant stroll taking in the lake will bring you out in the bustling town of Keswick - the beating heart of the Lake District.
Back at the hotel you can dine in style at the Deer’s Leap Restaurant, admiring splendid views towards the water as you enjoy a hearty meal. After dinner, why not retire to the Derwent Bar? Here you can sip a cooling drink in the summertime or get cosy by the roaring fire in winter – a real favourite for tired legs when you’ve spent the day walking the trails! Dogs are welcome at the hotel and the apartments, by prior arrangement and for a small fee.
In the beautiful, ever popular market town of Keswick, you’ll find the 18th Century Keswick Lodge. You can enjoy a stay where everything is done to ensure your stay is truly memorable.
From the moment you step inside The Keswick Lodge you’ll be treated to the warmest of welcomes. The traditional coaching inn has lovely wooden floors throughout and roaring log fire – giving it a cosy yet rustic feel. Everyone is really welcome here, so whether you’re a big group of walkers, a family with a whole brood or if you’ve brought your dog along for the trip, we do our very best to make you all feel really at home.
Food here is simple, yet perfectly executed by Chef, Mike Joyce, with menus inspired by the fresh, local in season produce sourced from trusted suppliers in the surrounding area. Everything is cooked from scratch and portions are big and hearty – perfect for setting you up for a full day of walking. And to wash down your delicious Cumbrian fayre, choose from a tempting array of Thwaites cask ales, seasonal guest ales and Signature Range.
What’s more, when you head upstairs, you’ll find contemporary and comfortable rooms with all the facilities you need to make your stay restful, including walking guides and books, flat screen TV and even a cushion for your pooch.
