If you want to truly experience what the Lake District has to offer, this break is perfect for you. Keswick is described as a place ‘almost too beautiful to live in’ and we can definitely understand why!

The Lake District is home to Windermere Lake, Scafell Pike and of course, Lake District National Park.

The Derwentwater Hotel has an unrivalled location sitting at the heart of the Lake District, surrounded by mesmerising scenery and well-known landmarks to explore. You can visit the iconic Theatre by the Lake, try your hand at some thrilling water sports, or just relax and take in your blissful surroundings at the hotel’s outdoor terrace.

A good night’s kip is really important when you’re travelling, and so is the location. We choose the accommodation to suit the trip, making sure you have a clean, comfortable and well-located place to stay.
Most of our travellers sign-up solo and so we’re all in the same boat … or plane for that matter. Our traveller groups are small, informal and welcoming. While we’re not a singles travel company, 90% of our groups are made up of solo travellers. You’ll have the opportunity to meet your team before we set-off – we run an ice-breaker on Zoom and you’ll also be invited into a WhatsApp group so you can get to know the group before we go. 
We like to keep our group-size small so travellers can get to know each other on the trip. Usually, there are around 5-10 travellers on each trip between the ages of 30-50.
Yes, you can. Around 10% of our group are made up of couples or friends who enjoy socialising and meeting new people. 
Of course! Everything we plan on the itinerary is optional. If you fancy coming along to everything, you’re more than welcome. If you want to dip out any point to relax or do your own thing, that’s completely fine too. 

It’s important for all travellers to arrange their own travel insurance before we set-off. If you need help with travel insurance, give Steve a call and he will advise. 

To secure your place on the trip, we’ll ask for a deposit, which can be made by bank transfer. The final payment for the trip will be due two-weeks before we leave. You’ll find more payment information on each event page.
Payment for your trip can be made online on this website, by bank transfer or you can make payment over the phone by calling Steve Sutherland on: 07845 529 538.

Cancellation requests are only accepted by email. For further information on our cancellation policy, read our full terms and conditions.

Contact Steve ( or 07845 529 538) any time and he’ll answer your questions.

Questions About This Get-Away

Hi, I’m Steve, After spending five years travelling the world, and over a decade organising trips across the UK and Europe, I found the biggest fear around travel was going alone. Booking a group tour with people you don’t know can also feel daunting and so that’s why at Solo Breaks, we organise small group trips so everyone can get to know each other and form life-long friendships. As your host, I’ll be there on every trip to take care of the travel logistics, answer any of your questions, and most importantly, make sure you have an unforgettable experience! If you have any questions about this trip, please get in touch: Click here to connect over WhatsApp or phone me on 07845529538. Thanks Steve
