England’s North Lakes District

Keswick (pop. 5,000, with gorgeous green slate buildings) was our vacation from our vacation. Our AirBnB was my favorite of our trip – we could hear and see sheep in the fields behind us; the place has gorgeous views; and it’s just a five-minute walk from the pedestrian center of town, and a 15-minute walk from Derwentwater, the third largest lake in the district. Here’s a little info about our boat ride on Keswick Launch.
