Around and About

With a well stocked supply of books and guides on Keswick and the local area available to guests in the B&B, you'll find ample inspiration for outdoor activities and walking in the nearby Northern Fells and in the Newlands area just west of Derwent Water where you'll find the popular Cat Bells walk. A selection of guided walks are also available from Moot Hall tourist information centre in Keswick.

Enjoy beautiful scenic boat trips on nearby Derwent Water or take in a cutting edge drama play at Keswick's Theatre by the Lake.  A wide choice of chic restaurants, bars, traditional inns and independent shops cluster around bustling North Lakes centre Keswick and not to be missed is the weekly Keswick Saturday Market. 


From the M6 motorway exit at Junction 40 (Penrith) and travel west towards Keswick.  After 1 mile passing the village of Threlkeld look for a left slip road signed keswick/Windermere (A591).  Take this exit off the A66.  At the end of the slkp-road keep to the left, and at the next T-junction take a right turn.

After passing the Fire and Ambulance stations take the third turning on the left (Greta Street).  Carry on over the next junction, and at the next Junction take a right turn - Rivendell Guest House is just on the right hand side.

From Ambleside & the South Lakes - follow the A591 heading into Keswick, and follow instructions above from passing the Fire Station.
