Ah, Keswick! One of the Lake District’s favourite towns! Set on the shores of Derwentwater and surrounded by tall fells, this pretty market town offers something for everyone. It’s the perfect holiday spot for couples or pairs of friends: if you love a bit of retail therapy, there are plenty independent and big-name shops; foodies will love the selection of restaurants and cafés; walkers are spoiled for choice with Skiddaw, Borrowdale and Blencathra on the doorstep, and thrill seekers can choose from a range of adventure activities!
And there are lots of holiday cottages to choose from, too! Take a look at some of our holiday cottages for two in Keswick below, or use our cottage search to find even more options!
