Keswick, where most people who have visited the Lake District during their lives will have been to at least once. Where imposing mountains meet beautiful lakes.
Keswick is a short journey up the A591 from Ambleside and Grasmere yet it seems a million miles away. Ambleside and Grasmere are simply stunning, quaint and picturesque and far smaller in terms of population. Keswick on the other hand is far more dramatic, the geology far more rugged and extreme, typical of the Northern Lake District. This ruggedness combined with the terrain naturally makes this a highly popular destination for walkers, climbers, mountain bikers and anyone who loves outdoor pursuits.
Equally Keswick has beauty in abundance and is easily accessible from the M6 motorway via the A66. From Junction 40 of the M6 it’s just a 20 minute drive to Keswick so for people coming from the South, North East or Scotland, Keswick is a prime location.
But why is it that Keswick not only drawers adventure seekers but also people who simply want to take it easy? Well that’s because Keswick is simply stunning at the time. Yes there are the rugged, mountainous areas but there are also such idyllic spots as Cat Bells and the Castle Rigg Stone Circle. Both these places of interest should be visited by all regardless of age or thrill seeking necessity.
For lakes then Derwentwater is a delight and the launch is a must thing to do enabling the fells to be viewed from the water, a completely different perspective. For serenity then Bassenthwaite Lake is hard to beat. It now has the award winning Lakes Distillery beside it too.
But lets not forget Keswick town itself. What a lovely market town full of independent shops and walking shops galore not to mention a Booths supermarket and lots of places to eat and drink.
