“Probably better on a sunny day”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

We wanted to do the lake but it was the last day of our holiday and the weather hadn't improved. However, we decided to go for it and take a trip on the Derwentwater Launch. This is something of a waterborne bus service on some very classy-looking boats. They call in at six jetties around the lake and you can hop on and off at will, which is very useful for seeing the local sights. Unfortunately, due to the weather, we didn't feel like getting off anywhere and just did the tour of the lake, which was interesting but not spectacular as the view was very limited with the mist and rain. £9.75 each was a bit much to pay but, as I say, we would probably have enjoyed it more on a sunny day, and even indulged in the hop on and off experience. Maybe next time!

“Beautiful Walk”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

Its the first time we have done the whole circuit of Derwent Water
and so pleased we did, what a beautiful walk and the best is that there is a lovely hotel were you can have a meal or a sandwich if like us you didn't have a picnic , if you decide to do the full circuit set aside a good few hours but you wont be disappointed

“lovely lake”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

We had a love walk around the lake and a short trip on the launch. The weather was a bit drizzly but this did not stop us enjoying the scenery.
