Trip Information

With its dramatic contrast between mighty mountains and still water, Derwent Water is surely the highlight of the Northern Lake District and this trip gives you the perfect opportunity to explore this stunning area by bike. Based at Derwent Bank you will find the perfect mix of relaxation and challenge, as you tackle the rolling roads of the Lakes, before returning to the comfort and views of the lake and mountains, where you can relax with your choice of tipple on the sun terrace or sheltering from the elements in the conservatory. 
Over the course of your trip, you will have the opportunity to explore mostly quiet country lanes, rolling fells and pretty lakeside roads. The area is also rich in heritage, from the ancient stone circle at Castlerigg to signs of the more recent small-scale mining industry.
This tour is available as a 3 or 4 night break, giving you 2 or 3 days to explore the area on your bike. For the 4 night break, pick the optional 4 night supplement. If you would like to extend your stay beyond 4 nights, please just give us a call.
For most of the season, 3 night breaks begin on Fridays and 4 night breaks begin on Mondays.
