Keswick is arguably the best centre for walking in the Lake District and many of the walks can be undertaken straight from Honister House. We have a library of books and guides to plan your day and John has a particular knowledge of the Borrowdale valley and mountain paths as an experienced footpath repairer for the National Trust.
Keswick is also a major base for exploring the Lake District's many other attractions including Honister Slate Mine, Derwentwater's two marinas and launch service, Whinlatter Forest, and the homes of William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter and the landscape which inspired them both.
