Row Across Derwentwater

A lake cruise is all well and good, but for the full up-close-and-afloat treatment, you could do worse than grabbing the oars of a traditional wooden rowing boat and drifting off across Derwentwater. 

Keswick Launch Company, located at the northeastern end of the lake, can provide you with the vessel. From here it's roughly 500 metres to the opposite side. Keep an eye out for Lingholm Estate (where Beatrix Potter used to spend summers) on the western shore and the Catbells summit beyond. 

Boats are available from Easter to the end of October.
