Messing about on a Lake District river!

Published:

When we were small we used to row down the river in Eskdale in a little red rowing boad or go on the lake next to Keswick (Derwentwater) - but who needs a river when you've got a lawn and some imagination (you'll be lucky to see a polar bear in the Lake District - although we did have a snowy winter!)

If you do like to canoe or row we have lots of Lake District cottages near to the rivers and lakes.
If you don't have a boat of your own our Keswick cottages are great as you can hire boats on Derwentwater. If you do have your own we used to boat down the river Esk in Eskdale which was great. We have lots of Eskdale cottages if this is of interest.
