Keswick - The Lake District Holiday Brochure

Keswick in The Lake District is the perfect area to choose equally for gentle relaxation or for an action packed family adventure holiday with lots of activities and attractions.

The landscape is full of spectacular scenery, ranging from the rugged central volcanic mountains to the smoother outlines and more open countryside of the lakes and villages found along the valley floors. This is a wonderful area in which to try new outdoor activities or to extend your existing skills. Walkers and climbers are spoiled for choice.

Keswick is the perfect base to explore the Lake District, with five of the highest mountains and eight of the major lakes within easy reach. Full of historic and natural wonders, Keswick feels a world away but is just 20 minutes from Penrith in north Cumbria which has good road and rail links.

For visitors to Keswick there is a range of accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets, whether you prefer a bed and breakfast (B&B), a guest house, hotel, or self-catering cottage, caravan or campsite.


Take a walk or two on your holiday but don't forget to take a map.
