Manager recommends: There’s great choice for walking holidays here in the Northern Lakes. Or try climbing Skiddaw, one of the highest mountains in the Lake District, which dominates the view across Fitz Park. Keswick is an excellent centre for all kinds of outdoor activity breaks including water sports, hiking holidays and cycling holidays. Don’t miss the view over Derwentwater in the evening - with a backdrop of the Borrowdale valley, best seen from Friars Crag.
