Local Attractions




Your Derwent Manor Apartment acts as a wonderfully well-equipped base to return to nightly, as you spend your days exploring the spectacular Lake District. Keswick and the North Lakes are known for their impressive natural scenery, and outdoor activities like walking, cycling and fishing are very popular pastimes. The Lakes have plenty to offer for families, couples, individuals and business travellers, from pretty parks and gardens to children’s attractions and activity centres. Historic houses, art galleries and museums detail the history of the Lakes and the people that have resided in this beautiful part of England.

Derwentwater Lake

A mile wide and 3 miles long, Lake Derwent (also known as Derwentwater) is one of the most famous bodies of water in the Lake District. It’s surrounded by hills, and boats on the lake offer a different perspective for anyone deciding against the eight-mile circular walk.

Cumberland Pencil Museum
An interactive and family-friendly museum, this attraction contains a wide selection of pencils and details the history of pencil-making with restored machinery, photographs and pieces of text. Derwent Fine Art pencils are made on site, and the museum houses the world’s longest pencil. The whole family can explore the replica of the Seathwaite mine, where graphite was discovered 350 years ago, and can enjoy art workshops before a drink in the on-site coffee shop.

The Bowder Stone

One of the most famous Lake District landmarks, the Bowder Stone weighs 2,000 tons and stands 30ft high with a 90ft circumference. It seems to defy gravity, balancing on a corner, and is not made of local rock which indicates that it was carried to the Lakes on an Ice Age glacier.

The Moot Hall

Keswick’s Market Square is home to this unusual property, built in 1813. Its most distinguishing feature is the one-handed clock, and it now includes an art gallery and Tourist Information Centre. As Keswick’s focal point, the Moot Hall stands in the town centre and is the best place to make your plans as a first-time visitor.

Honister Slate Mine

Visitors to England’s last working slate mine will find plenty of things to do. You can enjoy a guided underground tour, try light meals and snacks at the on-site coffee shop and browse the gift shop for souvenirs and slate creations. The Via Ferrata is a system of ladders, bridges, cables and rungs allowing you to traverse steep rock faces safely as you travel more than 2,000ft high, and you can take the ‘Fill Your Boot’ challenge where you pay a set price to take home as much Lakeland slate as you can.

Castlerigg Stone Circle

This prehistoric monument is an inspirational stone circle set on a low hill, where you can enjoy views to Blencathra, Skiddaw and Lonscale Fell. Walkers and photographers should aim to visit the Castlerigg Stone Circle, and perhaps to stop for a picnic within it.

Wordsworth House and Gardens

This attraction is the childhood home of William Wordsworth and his sister Dorothy, where you can enjoy spectacular gardens and can speak with household staff to learn more about their lives.  It’s an interactive museum, which means that you’re welcome to touch and use many of the objects and artefacts on display. There are toys for children, and you can sample foods that are regularly prepared in the kitchen. Pieces of text by Wordsworth are also on display.

What some of our guests have to say…

Customer Rating:

We think The Derwentwater is one of the best hotels in the area because of the quality of the staff. Stunning location and value for money. We have been coming for many years both on our own and for family meetings. It is clean well run with great food and a nice atmosphere, staying in the hotel itself or the spacious apartments it is a nice experience from the moment you are met at reception, nothing is a trouble to them.

Dave and Jean Worrall
Customer Rating:

We have enjoyed our recent stay, one of many, in one of the hotel's apartments - actually the one which is located on the ground floor of the main building. For us, it is a home from home. We enjoy the familiarity of the hotel, and especially the warm welcome from the friendly and efficient staff which always awaits us. The Derwentwater Hotel is very conveniently accessible, and now that the by-pass is in place, is off the beaten track and a well-kept secret. It is a classic building, nestled in its own private grounds on the edge of Derwentwater Lake. The view from the conservatory looking out over the marina, and over the water, with Borrowdale in the distance, is second to none. The hotel is good value for money. We would recommend the hotel and apartments to like-minded people who appreciate a bit of peace and quiet!

Mary Danby
Customer Rating:

This gem of a hotel provides peace and tranquillity in a beautiful setting while offering service beyond compare. The friendly staff will go that extra step to make your stay memorable. The apartments are a home from home, right down to the little touches that made our arrival so special and the grounds are beautiful, worth a stroll anytime of the day. Bring your camera.
