Welcome to Keswick

Glencoe Guest House - About Keswick

A lovely market town, with a resident population of around 5000, situated in the heart of the Cumbria Lake District. It nestles between the foot of the majestic Skiddaw, the fourth highest mountain in England at 931m (3054ft) and the head of Derwentwater (perhaps the prettiest of all the lakes and forming part of the Borrowdale Valley).

With a diverse selection of shops, restaurants, pubs, tea rooms, art galleries, live entertainment and beautifully kept gardens there is something for everyone.

Surrounded by some of the most spectacular landscape in the British Isles it offers the outdoor enthusiast a myriad of activities, including: climbing, hill walking, cycling, mountain biking, fell running, horse riding, sailing, canoeing, and the list goes on...
