Best for Watersports - Expert review of Derwentwater and Platty+
Derwentwater is the third largest of the Cumbrian Lakes. For families, it's the perfect spot for some stone skimming and lakeside walks – my favourite views are from Friar’s Crag.
The polymath John Ruskin was moved to declare this to be one of the top views in Europe and the land is now owned by the National Trust.
For something more active, Patty+ is a watersports centre by the Lodore stage on teh banks of Derwentwater. It offers courses, plus dinghy and canoe hire.
Kayak hire from Platty+ starts at £6.50 per hour.
