Enjoy Crisp Autumn Walks & Evenings By A Roaring Fire In Keswick, Lake District

We just love this time of year here in Keswick.  Crisp, frosty mornings often with a layer of mist hanging over the lake. Clear blue sky days perfect for a lakeshore stroll.  Cloudless, star-filled evenings and roaring fires to keep you warm.  Combine that with the fantastic mix of things that you can do in and around Keswick and you would be hard pressed to find a reason not to visit.

There are plenty of seasonal offers for accommodation, so why not take a look and book now.

Poppies At St John's Church

If you are visiting Keswick this month, take the time to visit the Keswick Cascade of Poppies at St John's Church.  There are almost 13,000 hand-knitted poppies, mostly red but some purple to commemorate animals who have lost their lives at war.  There is also a peace garden of white poppies.  Rain and wind permitting, the display will remain in place throughout November.
