Large Group Accommodation in Derwent Water for Holidays in the Lake District

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Derwentwater Independent Hostel, Keswick, Cumbria, sleeps 20-88 in 11 bedrooms.

Derwentwater Independent Hostel sleeps up to 88 in 11 rooms.

Derwentwater is in a perfect setting in the Lake District. This 230 year old mansion is very popular with a huge variety of groups. School children leave at the end of their residential with memories to treasure for a lifetime.

Kathy and Dave, the managers here for over 25 years, can help you plan and tailor make your visit and activities. We work closely with local activity providers and offer specialist packages for Key Stage 2 and Secondary groups. Our experienced staff provide home-made food which all ages enjoy and appreciate and guarantee you a friendly, homely and comfortable stay.

Young people also really enjoy the large grounds for playing team games. We have 17 acres to explore including SSSI oak woodlands, wild-flower meadows, an impressive waterfall, hydro-electric scheme and an orienteering course and nature trail. The grounds are inspirational for poetry and art and great for team building, nature studies, stream dipping, biology field work and astronomy.

There is plenty of space for on-site parking for minibuses and coaches.

The flexibility of the building means we can accommodate 2 or more smaller groups at the same time with your own work area and there’s plenty of communal space for everyone to enjoy including a games room, table tennis room and lounges. The main dining room is a spacious and versatile room and is adaptable for a range of events from housing a planetarium to a rehearsal room for a school musical. So whether you are looking for a whole year group residential or a small A level field studies trip we can accommodate you.

Our location is ideal, just 2 miles from Keswick with stunning views over the lake and surrounding mountains. You can do so many activities locally you will be spoilt for choice. Many groups take the boat for a memorable start to a mountain day up Cat Bells or do water sports on the Lake and learn about Vikings and the Cumbrian environment.
