Travel Guide to holidays in... Keswick, Cumbria, England



Keswick is a market town in Cumbria, England. It is in the Lake District National Park just north of Derwent Water and within a few miles of Braithwaite and Threlkeld and is one of over one hundred towns and villages in Cumbria in which Go2 has cottages or holidays lets available. The nearest cities are Carlisle (population 71,773), Lancaster (population 45,952), and Liverpool (which has a population of 469,017 according to the 2001 Census).

With its location near Derwent Water Keswick has become known as the home of the modern Theatre by the Lake. It holds various repertoire and festivals continuing the tradition the Cadbury Theatre summer season productions (a once mobile theatre that found a more permanent home at Keswick for many years, but which is now located at Snibston Discovery Park in Leicestershire).

Keswick represents an ideal location to stay in for any holiday to the Lake District, with all the major lakes and mountains within close range. Follow the links to find holiday cottages and lets available in this area on Go2, or view the surrounding area on the map below.

It’s the magnificent scenery that attracts so many holidaymakers to the Lake District. And you’ll find our holiday cottages in Cumbria and the Lakes are perfectly located to make the most of what is arguably the most beautiful region in England.

The Lake District National Park features stunning scenery of high fells and majestic lakes. This is ideal walking country, particularly over the many hills. The Lake District has the highest hills in England, including Scafell Pike, the country’s highest point. And of course there are the lakes themselves: glorious Windermere, pretty Derwent Water and beautiful Ullswater are just some of the highlights of our Cumbria and the Lakes cottage holidays.

For the historically minded, Cumbria offers a wealth of Celtic monuments, Roman remains, stately homes and ruined abbeys. Carlisle still has some of its ancient walls standing, as well as a Norman castle, and the western part of Hadrian’s Wall is nearby. Other places of interest include Penrith, with its castle and remarkably unchanged market square; Keswick, which was once the centre of pencil manufacturing; the busy market town of Kendal and Cockermouth, Wordsworth’s birthplace
