Applethwaite village is a quiet little backwater, well off the main road, and the views from the houses are magnificent.

Keswick is a major Lakeland centre offering all sorts of activities. Hire any kind of boat on Lake Derwentwater, enjoy walks alongside the lake or far up the fells, go to the theatre or cinema, or just browse round the excellent shops. Lots of pubs serve bar meals and welcome children.

Keswick is recognised as the Adventure capital of England, and you can undertake almost every activity here: horse riding, mountain biking (Whinlatter centre is renowned and hires bikes), climbing, walking, mountaineering, kayaking, -even paragliding. Bring your own gear or hire it while you are here. Free wi-fi available

Other Activities: Canoeing, rowing boat hire.
