Great Summer Walks 2023

Our fantastic, long anticipated British Summer has arrived and now is the time to visit the Lake District to stock up on some precious Vitamin D, enjoy all the glorious sunshine and marvel at the most stunning scenery imaginable. Ouse Bridge House is a perfect place to stay if the outdoors, nature, and cocooning environments are high on your must have list.

First up our beautiful property is situated in the heart of the Lake District, a country style property that offers a selection of charming ‘rooms with a view’, and legendary breakfasts fit for a king. For dog owners, yes, we are indeed very welcoming of your loyal four-legged companions and can recommend some great dog friendly walking trails to enjoy together.

Our location is a favourite for many walkers due to its proximity to walking trails around Keswick that cater for all levels of fitness and comfort. We’ve put together a selection of just a few of the most popular walks from Keswick.

A leisurely walk that takes about 1.5 hours and spans 3.5 miles, it is a great option to get an overall feel for the area.

This walk will take you on a 10-mile scenic path around Derwentwater, Queen of the Lakes. Passing through woodlands and the lake shore, it is flat and has incredible scenery to accompany you.

Give yourself the day to complete this 6-hour walk, as it starts at Moot Hall Keswick and weaves its way to the fourth highest mountain in England. A proficient level of fitness is required.

As well as the above routes to peruse, there are several more walking routes available to investigate on this very helpful website. If you are bringing your beloved dog with you, there are endless places for them to enjoy including the popular Derwentwater walk above.

Waking up each day surrounded by nature in all its glory, is something we never tire of, so we know that time spent at the Ouse Bridge House is going to exceed your expectations.

We’d love to hear from you if you have a walking group interested in staying with us. Our doors are open and waiting for your visit.
