Kettlewell Picnic Spot, Derwentwater

Kettlewell is a beautiful little picnic spot just off the Borrowdale Road, on the south east shores of Derwentwater. Free for National Trust members, and offering a pretty little beach and local walks.


Waterside House Campsite & Pooley Bridge

We spent a couple of nights in the luxurious bell tent at Waterside House Campsite, just south of Pooley Bridge. We used the campsite as our base for our adventures, heading up to Angletarn Pikes on the first day and to Brotherswater on the second.   Not to mention swimming in Ullswater, right outside our tent and playing in the campsite playground with a magnificent backdrop!
