The perfect setting for your event

The inspiring location and setting of Derwent Hill makes any event special

Derwent Hill is in the heart of the Lake District National Park and overlooks Derwent Water and Borrowdale, which is widely regarded as being the most beautiful of the Lakeland valleys.

See our World class location in this fabulous video:

Getting here is easy, as we are close to the town of Keswick and the A66, but our lovely 28-acre estate is private and secluded, being almost surrounded by the River Derwent.  See where we are on a map.

There are many opportunities for outdoor activities in the immediate area, including lakes, rivers, fells and forests.

There is lots going on in Keswick, and the area has a rich cultural life, including the Theatre by the Lake.
