Keswick - #3

Lying at the Northern brim of the Lake District National Park, Keswick offers a great diversity of activities and places to visit at any time of the year, making it one of our favourite places when planning a day out. Surrounded by some of the most beautiful fells in the park and boasting picture perfect valleys and waters spanning in all directions, it's a treasure trove of nestled country pubs, interesting places to eat and outdoor shops that cater to all kinds of visitor.

Keswick town centre is permeated with interesting and exploratory guinnels and archways hiding some great artisan shops and cafés. An outdoor enthusiast's dream shopping experience, George Fisher is the place to go for anything gear related whether it be for a short bimble or hearty hike. Their friendly staff are always on hand to help advise and answer questions and the store provides our very own Brimstone Hotel with the gear we keep available for use by guests in our Arctery'x Bootroom.

Castlerigg Stone Circle is always worth a quick visit when driving through Keswick. Constructed around 3000 BC in the Neolithic period, it's one of 5 stone circles of its kind in the National Park and in good weather, offers stunning panoramas of the Lakeland fells.


Parking can be found less than 2 minutes walks from the stone circle, making it accessible to all.

There's so many places we like, it's hard to fit it all in, however the Inn On The Square stands out as one of our favourites. Lavish design, craft ales and a warm, comfortable welcome ensure great moments of relaxation in the middle of a busy Keswick centre. After a beverage or two it's the perfect opportunity to visit Roly's Fudge Pantry just around the corner. Choose from over 20 different flavours, watch traditional fudge being handmade and pick up a treat for friends and family back home.

Originally dedicated to the work of Beatrix Potter, the walled garden of Lingholm Estate was mostly built whilst she stayed at the Estate over the summer holidays at the turn of the 20th Century. It is now a favourite for families and visitors to the Lake district growing seasonal vegetables flowers all year round.

The Lingholm Kitchen provides Families and day trippers with a great opportunity to indulge in local and seasonal foods in a relaxed atmosphere with awe inspiring views out and over the walled gardens towards Skiddaw.

A short drive or a moderate walk from Keswick along the East side of Derwentwater and up a bit of a hill you will find two of the most iconic views in the Lake District. Ashness Bridge you will recognise from countless brochures and websites and a little further there is a car park and the wonderfully named Surprise View, both are well worth the effort and you will go home with some great photos

The railway path which weaves through the picturesque Greta Gorge all the way from Keswick to Threlkeld was severely damaged in the 2015 floods, leaving a large amount of work to be done repairing and restoring this beautiful, 4 mile stretch of pathway.
