Enjoy a romantic retreat on the shore of Derwentwater

Keswick, Cumbria

Escape with your loved-one to the Lingholm estate, set in a stunning location on the western shore of Derwentwater.

The two of you can soak in the scenery which inspired Beatrix Potter, who spent ten summer holidays here between 1885 and 1907. It is here she wrote Squirrel Nutkin, as well as the first manuscript for the Tale of Mrs Tiggy-Winkle.

Overlooking a striking Victorian walled garden and views across to Skiddaw is the new ‘Lingholm Kitchen’, which serves a range of locally sourced foods, and is perfect for a leisurely breakfast, light lunch or sumptuous afternoon tea for two.

Later, stroll along a short footpath to a new landing Stage for relaxing cruises across Derwentwater to the bustling Lakeland town of Keswick.
