Last Word

If you’re looking for a quaint rural getaway with unspoilt views of the rolling countryside nearby and to be a short drive away from the wonderful Lake District and all of the nature trails and lakes it has to offer, Derwentwater should be the only choice.

Finally, if you wish to use the wood burner in the winter to keep you and your guests warm during your stay at Derwentwater, logs and kindling are available to buy by putting the money into an on-site honesty box.
