The Keswick Lodge
More than just an establishment in the long list of Keswick Hotels for tourists and guests, the Keswick Lodge also has a great history written in its foundation. Originally designed to function as a coaching house during the 18th century, the Keswick Lodge is situated right in the heart of Keswick, a market town that exudes that certain Cumbrian atmosphere. With three of England’s highest summits, Skiddaw, Scafell and Helvellyn, readily accessible to those who want to experience adventure, there is no doubt why the Keswick Lodge is so popular with outdoor enthusiasts.

The ancient yet bustling Keswick Lodge, one of the finest Keswick Hotels in the world, is situated right in the middle of the Lake District and is ideally located near places of interest. Aside from the peaks of Skiddaw, Scafell and Helvellyn, the Keswick Lodge is located on the north of Derwentwater, one of Cumbria’s famous lakes. The attractions in Derwentwater include a boat ride around the lake. From Keswick Lodge, you can bike or hike your way along the shores of the lake to bask in its serene beauty and scenery.
The Castlerigg, a circle of Neolithic stone of gigantic proportions dated to be 4,000 years old, overlooks the town of Keswick. The overlooking view from Castlerigg is breathtaking and is well worth the hike for even for the not so avid outdoor wanderers.
