Derwentwater is the widest of the lakes in Cumbria - the Lake District. Overlooked by the mighty Skiddaw and with the bustling market town of Keswick on its northern shore, it is a popular choice with visitors.
The majority of the land next to the shoreline belongs to the National Trust and there are some picturesque walks through the woods and along the shores of the lake. It has recently been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest to help protect the rare species of wildlife that inhabit the lake and its surroundings.
Enjoy the lake and fells that surround it on board the Keswick Launch service, which calls at seven different landing stages around the lake.
