Calfclose Bay is part of four waymarked walks starting from the Keswick Foreshore. The shortest is a pushchair-friendly 0.5 mile circuit of the wood beside the lake, including a wild play trail. The longest is the 2.75 mile circular Lakeside Amble which visits the Centenary Stone sculpture.

Calfclose Bay is a great place for a picnic in Summer, with undisturbed views across Derwentwater onto Catbells and down to the ‘Jaws of Borrowdale’.
