It Won't Be Long Before You Are Back In Keswick, The Lake District

After a few blustery days, the best of the Autumn colours are coming to an end.  We are now really looking forward to the frosty mornings and bright, clear days that November and December bring.

The latest Covid restrictions mean that you won't be able to visit us again until December at the earliest but that doesn't mean that you can't start planning for a trip to Keswick once you are able.

All of our businesses are looking forward to re-opening their doors and welcoming you back just as soon as they can.

Once The Lockdown Is Over, You'll Be Wanting To Enjoy A Break In Keswick

These are stressful times and sometimes you just need to take a break and get away from it all.  A winter break in Keswick will give you the chance to recharge your batteries and reconnect with nature.

Simply being outside in wide open spaces and taking in the spectacular views will help you to relax and refocus.

Take a walk, browse the shops and attractions, enjoy a spa treatment and treat yourself to some wonderful food and drink.  After being told to stay at home for a second time this year, why wouldn't you want to visit Keswick just as soon as you are able?

Now more than ever, our businesses need you to book through or direct.  If you need any information or advice, we will be more than happy to help you.  Just email us at

Online Christmas Shopping In Keswick

Has the annual Christmas "what can I get them" panic already set in?  Then it's time to take a look at what the shops in Keswick have to offer.

You won't find the usual high street shops but you will find a whole host of unique, independent and often quirky shops and galleries just bursting with gift ideas.  Ranging from cheese and chocolate to handmade jewellery, ceramics, paintings and clothes plus everything in between. 

Covid restrictions mean that you can't get to Keswick to do your Christmas shopping during November but don't worry, we are hoping that you can visit again in December and in the meantime many of our shops have an online presence and also offer gift vouchers.

Bright, crisp Winter days really lend themselves to getting out for a walk.  The days are getting shorter so when you next visit, you may not want to plan any long walks but there are plenty of shorter, low level walks to choose from.
