Derwent Island House
Derwent Island House
Of all the visitors who come to the Derwentwater area, few realize that a historic house lurks in isolated splendour in the middle of the lake. Derwent Island House is an historic  18th century house, standing on a small wooded isle in the centre of the lake.
The house stands within a period garden that has now been restored. The interiors are furnished in classical style.

Derwent Island House is tenanted, but is open to visitors on set days throughout the year. Pre-booking is essential - please check with the National Trust website for details.
