Best Retreats in the Lake District: Keswick Holiday Resort
As any of our UK-based readers will know, the Lake District has long been heralded as one of the most beautiful and scenic regions that the country (perhaps even Europe!) has to offer.
England’s largest national park, the Lake District is one of Britain’s true natural wonders: set against a backdrop of rugged mountains, sweeping lakes and dramatic moors, and home to bustling market towns and picturesque villages.
It probably comes as no surprise, then, that Lake District holidays offer incredible, tranquil breaks, in some of the best retreats that the country has to offer. Darwin Escapes is proud to have two beautiful resorts in the Lake District region; both our Thanet Well Lodge Retreat and our Keswick Reach Lodge Retreat offer guests peace and stillness, in the UK’s most sought-after holiday destination.
Home to England’s highest mountain and deepest lake, the Lake District is the perfect breath of fresh air: relax, unwind and recharge your batteries in a Darwin Escapes retreat. For the best retreats in the Lake District, look no further than our holiday resort in Keswick, Keswick Reach Lodge Retreat.
Keswick Reach Lodge Retreat – ‘The Best Holiday Park In Britain’.
Our Keswick Reach Lodge Retreat has been named the ‘Best Holiday Park in Britain’ for two consecutive years – and it isn’t hard to see why.
Set in the heart of Keswick, within driving distance from the region’s iconic lake, Derwentwater, Keswick Reach Retreat is nestled between dramatic fells and among outstanding natural woodland. For guests looking to take a restful break from the hustle and bustle of daily life, Keswick and the surrounding region offer a truly tranquil escape.
With Catbells Lakeland Walk and Whinlatter Forest Park mere moments away, the opportunities to recharge your batteries with walks through England’s countryside are truly endless. We think there’s truly no better way to shake off the working week than by losing yourself in the breathtaking scenery of the Lakes, which is why the region attracts almost 16 million visitors per year, from home or further afield. Spark your curiosity with visits to the region’s National Trust properties, like the 18th-century Derwent Island House, as well as national historic monuments such as Keswick Railway Path, Keswick Museum and Honister Slate Mine. Perfect in spring and summer, there’s also plenty to do all year round, with truly spectacular Christmas markets on offer in the festive season.
It’s at Keswick Reach Lodge Retreat, however, that you’ll have the opportunity to truly relax. Set amongst the outstanding natural beauty of Keswick, our resort offers a peaceful escape, with truly awe-inspiring views across open moorland, towards Carrock Fell. With our bright, modern lodges and our full range of facilities, your retreat here can begin as soon as you wake up.
Keswick Reach Lodge Retreat is, of course, fully stocked with complete amenities for anything you might need. Soak in your hot tub and drink in the views, build strength in our well-equipped gym, or for complete peace of mind and body you can make full use of our Ammara spa. Grab a glass of fizz and a bite to eat at our Copper Fells Bar & Brasserie, ready to cater to your every need. With endless places to visit and a whole host of activities, including our Jacuzzi and sauna, there’s truly something for everyone at Keswick Reach Lodge Retreat.
