The Lake District

Cumbria is home to the Lake District, also known as the Lakes or Lakeland is world renowned for the beautiful lakes and mountains (or fells). The Lake District is home to the highest mountain in England: Scafell Pike measuring 978m (3210 ft).

The National Park was founded in 1951 to offer protection to the well known beauty spots and landscape that has provided inspiration to generations of artists' writers and musicians.

From a stroll around Buttermere to a climb to the highest peak a holiday in the English lakes provides exercise for the body and relaxation for the mind.

Market towns such as Keswick and Cockermouth give the opportunity to sample the delights of Cumbrian fare many establishments now source their ingredients from local producers.

Whilst areas like Bowness on Windermere and Ambleside are extremely popular other less commercial locations like the Solway Coast and Allonby give you space and quiet with the vast open shingle beaches the majestic beauty of the Solway.

A Cumbrian Cottage holiday booked through Stay Lakeland assures you of quality and value we have a unique selection of accommodations from simple Holiday home caravans to stunning timber lodges plus a range of cottages in and around this beautiful part of the country.


Keswick is a vibrant and bustling market town on the edge of Derwentwater, a lake quite rightly regarded as "The Queen of Lakes". Keswick is a popular town offering a vast range of tourist attractions, shops, pubs and restaurants and many museums and other places of interest. The town was recorded during the 13th century as a market town for cheese (the name Keswick actually means "cheese town").

Keswick was granted a charter for a market by King Edward I, today the town still holds the market every Saturday in the pedestrianised Main Street. The marketplace features the iconic Moot Hall, which was once the Town Hall but now acts as the towns Tourist Information Centre.

In addition to the weekly market the town centre has a tempting array of shops where you are sure to fin everything you’ll need from your daily requirements to that elusive special gift to take home. There is a vast array of independent and individual shops offering speciality foods, local produce, antiques, books, gifts, crafts and traditional toys, the town also has and an excellent choice of outdoor clothing and equipment retailers, thus earning the town the title of "Outdoor Retailer of the UK".

Derwent Water often referred to as "The Queen of Lakes" is located within the town of Keswick as well as occupying parts of Borrowdale, it is fed and drained by the River Derwent and measures approximately 3 miles long and 1 mile wide, Derwent Water is unusual in that it has four islands dotted along its length: Derwent, Lords, Rampsholme and St. Herbert’s. The lake also has cruises and row boats, allowing you to take advantage of the beautiful fells surrounding the lake. The Keswick Launch on Derwent Water sails from seven

In addition to the beauty of the local area, wealthy choice of pubs, bars and restaurants and the attractions of the town centre, Keswick also has an abundance of popular visitor attractions including: the Theatre by the Lake, Cars of the Stars, The Keswick Museum and Art Gallery and the Cumberland Pencil Museum. In addition the town holds a number of festivals and conventions including: Beer Festival, Mountain Festival and the Keswick Convention; to name a few.

Keswick has two main park areas Hope Park and Fitz Park. Hope Park is located between town centre and Derwent Water. It was originally donated to the town in 1925 by Sir Percy Hope and after his death the park was taken over by the Hope Park Charitable Trust. This magnificent park provides a quite area to admire the magnificent scenery. The park also has a Lakeland themed Crazy Golf Course, and 18 hole putting course and a 9 hole pitch and putt course. Fitz Park is only a short distance from the town centre, and has excellent views towards Skiddaw and Latrigg the park also houses the Keswick Museum and Art Gallery.

The mountains surrounding Keswick are a major attraction and it’s easy to get to the top of most of them. Skiddaw has a wide footpath to the summit, every day of the year; whatever the weather you’ll find someone making the ascent.

"A cosy and homely base for exploring a beautiful area"

A friendly little cottage with all the basics (plus a few extras) required for a pleasant stay in the lake district. On the outskirts of the town so some countryside walks available from the cottage without having to travel. Cottage within easy walking distance of the town centre if you want to go shopping or to cinema or theatre. Pub just opposite if you are so inclined. All major scenic areas of the lake district within easy driving distance. All in all a very good base for a stay to explore one of the best areas of the country.
