Each year, lovers of the great outdoors flock to Cumbria, in the north-west of England. The county is among the most beautiful in the country, with landscapes incorporating dizzying mountains and idyllic, tranquil lakes. Cumbria is probably best known as the home of the Lake District, one of the United Kingdom's premier National Parks. Among the largest of its lakes is Derwent Water. Situated just outside the popular town of Keswick, Derwent Water is served by an abundance of exquisite hotels.
The three mile long body of water outside Keswick is a truly enchanting space. Flanked on all sides by dynamic hills and awe-inspiring natural landscapes, this pocket of nature is one of the most moving in the county. Fans of dry land can head for one Derwent Water's many islands. Water lovers can take a summer dip, sharing the water with numerous rare species of fish, such as the vendace.
One of the main attractions of the Lake District is the plethora of excellent walking opportunities. With an eight-mile circumference, keen ramblers can find their way around Derwent Water without too much fuss. The only better way to appreciate the spot's natural beauty is by stepping aboard a boat and heading to the centre of the lake.
There are regular cruises run from the Keswick side of the lake, but there's also plenty of chance for visitors to get on the water by themselves. The lake houses a number of adventure sport business, offering all kinds of water sports, from windsurfing and sailing to rowing.
With Keswick just 10 minutes' walk from the water's edge, Derwent Water is within easy reach of some of the finest hotels in Cumbria. Those seeking some tranquillity can also find plenty of intimate guesthouses in the rural depths of Cumbria.
LakeSide House is a four-star property which sits on the northern edge of Derwent Water. As the name suggests, the proximity to the lake promises exquisite views. There's also free WiFi and parking, ideal for exploring the rest of the gorgeous Lake District.
