I have been lucky enough to live in the Keswick area for over 20 years and have 
brought my 3 children up here.  We have all enjoyed the outdoor lifestyle . 
We cycle up the many Lakeland passes and mountain bike in and around Whinlatter 
forest and other areas , there are miles of beautiful trails and mountains with 
breathtaking views to fell run or hike up , 
I swim in Derwent water most mornings , so can give you plenty of advice about 
places too swim.

Perky Pike is in the lovely market town of Keswick , situated in the heart of the 
beautiful Lake District where there is an abundance of outdoor activities on the door step such as hill walking or rock climbing, road and mountain biking , water sports 
and amazing fresh water lakes and tarns to swim in. We are less than 5 minute walk 
from Keswick Town Centre where you will find a wealth of outdoor shops and plenty of pubs and restaurants. Keswick also has a cinema, along with the popular Theatre
 by the Lake just a 10 minute walk away. 
Keswick also has several festivals such as the mountain festival where there are 
plenty of things to do and outdoor activities to try.  Keswick hosts the jazz festival 
and many sporting events such as triathlons , an iron man & the half marathon 
plus many cycling events all set in our picturesque countryside .
