You can do some wonderful walks straight from the house, or jump in the car and head off on the most scenic tours you can imagine, or take out a mountain bike or electric bike from E-Venture Bikes and cycle around Derwentwater.
There’s a cricket and croquet sets available, along with footballs to enjoy in our extensive grounds. And there’s plenty of country side pursuits available nearby too, including: clay pigeon shooting, archery, off-road driving, go karting, quadbiking, and paintballing.
Make the most of being lake side and get out on the water – kayaking, sailing and canoeing are all available from the marina a few hundred yards from the house, and are the perfect way to enjoy the Lakes.
You can also sample some fine cuisine at a local gastro-pub or restaurant. The Farmer’s Arms is only a ten minute walk from the house, and The Chalet Restaurant, which is informal yet stylish, is a mere 5 minutes. For lunch and lighter bites we recommend The Lingholm Kitchen, a 10 minute walk from the house. Keswick also offers great dining out, with our favourites being Morrels and The Pheasant Inn. Other favorites are lunch at Treeby & Bolton and for a special occasion The Pheasant at Basenthwaite Lake, or The Cottage in the Wood at Whinlatter. We recommend booking.
