Get Out & About

The Lingholm Estate is surrounded by some of the most loved fells in the lake district and is situated on the shores of Derwentwater, making it easy to step out and enjoy your surroundings.

Keswick is a short drive from The Lingholm Estate, a lovely 45 minute walk or a five minute boat ride from the marina next door. Full of shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants it’s the perfect lakeland town. Don’t miss market day on Thursdays and Saturdays all year round.

A little closer to home you will find the village of Portinscale that has a lovely cafe/restaurant The Chalet and The Farmers Arms, a traditional lakeland pub. On the other side of the estate is The Swinside Inn heading into the Newlands Valley, it has a beer garden with some of the most breathtaking view across the valley and fells. A little further on into the summer months you will find Little Town farm that serves freshly baked cakes and lunches.

Even closer to home, on weekends out of season and most days in the summer you will find a treasure of ours at the end of the drive; a vintage VW split screen camper van serving up fresh coffee, tasty baked treats and English Lakes ice cream.

The North Lakes are well known for their breathtaking views, beautiful fells and an array of outdoor activities – there really is something for everyone. You can take a trip around the lake on the launch boat which makes regular stops at different points around the lake, perfect for a days exploring.

For the more adventurous, a boat or canoe can be hired from one of the two local marinas, you can have your very own Swallow and Amazons style picnic on St. Herbert’s Island. Hybrid bikes are available to hire from the Swinside Inn or delivery can be arranged to the estate if you’d like a bike for your whole holiday.

There are plenty of attractions nearby including Honister Slate Mine where you can test your nerves on the Via Ferrata, where participants use a safety harness to scale a cliff path higher than ‘Big Ben’. Whinlatter Forest and Visitor Centre has many mountain bike trails and adventure playgrounds to explore. For the younger visitor the Lake District Wildlife Park, set just 10 minutes from The Lingholm Estate, is a great place to spend a day learning about 100 different species of animals.

There are countless walks from the estate to suit any ability, from big fells to low level lakeside strolls. The views from famous Catbells are wonderful.

The Lingholm Estate has is own private stretch of lake frontage that is used solely by guests on the estate, the perfect place for a paddle or swim when the weather’s good. The estate is set in almost 40 acres so there is plenty of space to explore, play or relax in the grounds.

Keswick is home to the Theatre by the Lake which has a broad range of plays, performances and talks throughout the year.

We have had a fantastic weekend staying at Lingholm. What a wonderful place. Derwentwater had everything our family could ask for! We had a lovely walk round the grounds and look forward to watching it grow over the coming years. Keswick on a wet and windy Saturday was still buzzing as a thriving market town. Hope to see you again soon Jenny and Joe. All the very best.

This is our first time in the Lake District and it has not disappointed. Stunning views from the apartment as well as top class accommodation. Everything we needed was provided for us and Jenny was a welcoming host. The walk into Keswick is lovely as well as Catbells. Not enough time to do as much walking as we wanted. We are already planning to come back next year.
