Eating out

by rmicallef

Hi All,
I will be visitng Keswick next June. It is the first time for my wife & me to be visiting UK. We shall stay in B&B for 4 nights. I would like to know if there are any cheaper restaurants that the ones advertised. Is there any fastfood restauants? Burgerking etc.. ?

RE: Eating out

by NEILHALLIDYA

There are 2 fish and chip shops around the market area, several pizza and kebab places but no Burger Kings or McDonalds.

The best places to grab a meal are the pubs. Very traditional old English pubs. Although they can all be busy you`ll always find somewhere and its a good place to meet people. Again, there are several around the market area (cant remember the names) and, if you have a car, there is generally one or two in every village around the area. The one in Troutbeck is excellent.

There is a supermarket in the middle of Keswick where you can stock up on food/sandwiches.

Hope you enjoy your time here. Its a beautiful part of England.

Travel Tips for Keswick

Easy Classic Keswick Walk

by sandysmith

This was an easy 3 hour walk we did in late December - considered to be a classic of Keswick for its views anytime of year. Its a circular walk starting at Hawes End Car Park (opposite side of lake to Keswick) and takes in the lower terrace path of Cat Bells - you can hike steeply up to the ridge path for a more challenging longer hike if desired - to slightly beyond the lake of Derwent at Mannesty Cottages and returning along the wooded shoreline of Lake Derwent. Lovely variety of views and great to blow away the cobwebs of Christmas. We enjoyd crisp bright views for this hike I hope you do too! Paths are good a mixture of gravel/stoney/grass - boardwalks are strategically places across boggy ground but good footwear is always recommended. Being December - bright but cold - we were wrapped up warm with layers.

Lake Road II

by steventilly

The bottom part of Lake Road is noteable for 2 main reasons (3 if you count George Fishers)
1 - Magpie at Maysons
2 - KE Travel

Magpie at Maysons is one of those shops that sells strange and arty stuff ranging from clothing to homewares. The stuff is often a little "off the wall" and more the kind of stuff I'd look at rather than buy. It's on three floors and you can spend a while browsing in there.
See their website here
Next door is Maysons restaurant, which is mentioned in the restaurants tips.

KE Adventure Travel is a travel agency with a difference. Their speciality is in hiking and climbing trips to far flung destinations like Peru, Nepal and The Sahara. Their brochure is lovely and is like a "book of dreams" to me.
The information below is for KE Adventure - Maysons is directly opposite.

Watendlath

by iandsmith

"The hamlet is reached by a very narrow road with passing places, from the Keswick to Borrowdale road. It can be quite an ordeal during busy periods. " Thus spaketh the local tourism pages. They don't exaggerate. Be prepared to stop and back up on occasions. I'm certainly glad I wasn't there in busy times, it must be a nightmare.
The little hamlet of Watendlath, owned by the National Trust, sits high between the Borrowdale and Thirlmere valleys. It is 847 feet above sea level, with an attractive tarn surrounded by fells in a classic 'hanging valley'. Watendlath beck is the source for Lodore Falls - a tourist attraction from Victorian times and it's at the end of the road that crosses the Ashness Bridge and passes Surprise View. It's one of England's most scenic roads and you can choose to walk parts or all of it or drive up and pick a route from the many on offer.
Watendlath itself also has an attractive packhorse bridge and a National Trust tea-room where you can refresh yourself after your endeavours.
It costs to park there so, you have been warned.
