Exploring the Lake District - Where to Start?!

Want to visit the Lakes but not sure where to start?  Whether you’re into walking or not, Keswick is a great choice for a day trip from Tottergill.  There’s quaint shops, café’s and visitor centres to keep you entertained for hours.  Not to mention the huge range of walks and treks for all ranges of ability, like this one we did at Derwent Water.

As you can see, it’s not just a Summer destination – we took these photos on a bright and sunny day, late in September.  In fact, we like it better once the Summer crowds have left!

Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife and for those famous Herdwick sheep along the way.  And, if you’ve forgotten an essential piece of walking kit, don’t worry, Keswick’s wide selection of outdoor shops will have you set up in no time!  Check out one of our favourite’s on the main street: EDZ (www.edzlayering.com)
