Lake District Tourist Guide - Britain's Biggest National Park
Hotels and Bed and Breakfast in Keswick
If a market town sounds like the perfect base for your Lake District holiday, look no further than Keswick. Nestled in the northern part of the Lake District National Park, Keswick is a mere couple of miles away from the northern end of Derwent Water. Its proximity to the A66 going east to west and the A591 heading south makes it easy to reach many other attractions and locations within the greater Lake District.
Buttermere is a particularly stunning, yet perhaps lesser-known, lake in this region that is just half an hour away from Keswick. If you visit during the winter months you have only a 10-minute drive to reach the Lake District Ski Club in Penrith. As such, Keswick is great as a base for a holiday in the region, no matter what you have in mind.
Walkers in particular have some great routes to try in the local area. For example, the so-called Keswick Railway Path is well-signed and can be walked in its entirety or cut short to provide a shorter circular stroll. Either way it offers some stunning scenery out towards Threlkeld, with detours that can be taken to Castlerigg and its stone circle as well. Cyclists are also welcome on this route.
Your Keswick B&B is therefore well-placed when you want to explore this part of the Lake District. You are sure to find a Keswick bed and breakfast to suit your budget. Just look through our range of Keswick B&B accommodation today to make your booking now.
