Derwentwater is stunning no matter what the weather. There’s some great walks in and around the area, but the best one has to be the 10 mile hike round the entire lake.

We now love close to Derwent Water and it really is a place for everyone. Beautiful lake with amazing views. Walk around it, walk part of it, swim in it, get a boat on it... Please just don't leave your litter near it!

We did a short walk around this lake. You can literally spend a whole day here doing the different activities. The view alone is fantastic. What made it extra special was the fighter jet that zoomed past. Worth a trip!
