About Derwentwater

Derwentwater is one of 16 Lakes set within the Lake District National Park in Cumbria. It is one of the most northerly of the English Lakes and is 3 miles long, 1 mile wide and 72 feet deep. 'Derwentwater' which means 'lake of the river with many oak trees' is one of the widest in the Lake District and is known as the 'Queen of the Lakes', once you experience its beautiful and majestic setting you can understand why it is named as such. The Lake and surrounding area can be explored on foot. Suggested route plans can be purchased from the nearby National Trust shop at Lakeside Car Park. Alternatively, you can take a more leisurely exploration of Derwentwater via the passenger launch service which operates round trip cruises of the Lake making stops at 'Ashness', 'Lodore', 'High Brandlehow', 'Low Brandlehow', 'Hawes End', and 'Nichol End' allowing you to hop-on and hop-off. There is also an opportunity to hire both rowing boats and motor boats for your own personalised experience which is sure to provide the whole family with lots of excitement and fun.
