Ringed by magnificent fells and shoreside woods, Derwentwater is the third largest of the Cumbrian lakes, and stretches for 3 miles between the lake head market town of Keswick in the north and Borrowdale in the south. Looming above the lake is Skiddaw, the sixth-highest mountain in England, which dominates the skyline in this part of the northern lakes and also is the backdrop for Alicia Amison’s design.
Regular motor launches leave from Keswick all year round, dropping off and picking up passengers at jetties around the lake, one of which can be seen slowly moving across the water on one side of this vase. If you disembark to take a leisurely walk along the tree-lined shore, you can admire native flora such as bright yellow gorse and low-lying swathes of pink and purple heather together with abundant bilberries bushes.
In this part of the Lake District, Herdwick sheep can be found in the dry stonewall protected fields. This breed of heritage sheep, native to the Lake District and North West of England, was much admired by author Beatrix Potter, who championed their survival. Herdwicks are born black and turn grey as they grow older, and a mother and her lamb can be discovered feeding in the Lakeland fields, watched over by a Herdwick ram.
