Braithwaite has a village shop and three pubs providing home cooked meals and Cumbrian ales. The historical market town of Keswick is close by which has a wide selection of shops, restaurants, cafes, museums and galleries. There is also the famous Theatre by the Lake and the lake itself, Derwentwater. Derwentwater isn't the only nearby lake - Bassenthwaite Lake is only 4 miles away and a short (and stunning!) drive through Newlands Valley and over Newlands Pass takes you to Buttermere and Crummock water.
