Keswick April 2020
Spring Break 2020 at the Derwentwater Hotel Keswick
Spring 2020 we plan to visit Keswick and experience the beauty of the Lake District.
Walks: Potential walks available for this spring’s weekend away.
Please note: These walks have yet to be confirmed by the Walk’s Organiser but offer a taste of what could be available.
Option 1 - Offers short and longer options for ramble from the Lakeside car park to locations providing spectacular views of Derwent Water, Keswick and surounding area to the north and west. The longer option calls for quite a strenous climb up to Walla Crag wich offers even greater views over the Derwent Valley. Annotated walk route map, photos and instructions are available here.
Option 2 - Offers short and longer options for a hike starting out from Derwentwater Hotel out to the foot of Cat Bells and returning back to hotel via the west lakeside path. The longer option offers the chance to climb Cat Bells to view the eastern aspect of Derwent Water and ongoing hills. Walk route map and instructions are available here.
Option 3 - Offers low land short and longer options from the hotel car park covering Braithwaite and the Newlands Valley. The longer opt being greater distance rather than increased altitude. Walk route map, photos and instructions are available here.
Further walk options may be available nearer the time. A selection of which are listed here (note, the walks below have not been pre-walked):
