Another corner. Another wonderful lake. The place lives up to its name. This is superb. Drive slowly. Stop often. Enjoy.

Paddle Boarding lesson on Derwentwater. Amazing surroundings for the lesson or just to sit and watch with a cuppa.

We have visited Derwent water numerous times and we absolutely love it. The scenery is beautiful and you can take boat trips around the lake or walk along the lake shore. A stunning place to visit.
