A perfect winter walk on gorgeous Derwentwater! Beautiful sunny days with snow on the fells. Crisp sparkling air, still water, just rippled by ducks heading home after a days foraging amongst the reed beds.
Starting in Portinscale – lunch at one of the cafes – The Chalet, Nichol End Marina or Lingholm Kitchen & Walled Garden, followed by a stroll along the Lake shore. Back in time for crumpets & tea at home, watching the last rays of the sun light up Dodds range, pink in the sunset. Perfect day at Brackenrigg Holiday Cottages at www.brackenrigg.com
Stunning light picking out the fells towering above the opposite shore of Derwentwater. Bleaberry Fell, Walla Cragg to the West and to the North, Skiddaw and Blencathra dominating the skyline above Keswick. Winter walks for another day!
