Derwent water is 3 miles long and 1 mile wide. It is located to the south of Keswick
in the heart of the Lake District
. It has four National trust owned islands, and can be explored on foot around the lake shore or on one of the many boat trips on offer.
Derwentwater is also close to the small and picturesque villages of Borrowdale
, which are well worth a visit, if only to sample the excellent pub lunches!
