About Esthwaite Water

Esthwaite Water is one of the smaller and lesser known lakes in the Lake District National Park situated between the much larger lakes of Windermere and Coniston Water.

To the north is the village of Hawkshead and to the west is Grizedale Forest.

The lake covers around 280 acres (1.1 km2) and is known for its excellent fishing, particularly trout and pike and has been designated as a site of special scientific interest.

The lake was mentioned as the location where William Wordsworth conversed with a friend in Wordsworth's poem, "Expostulation and Reply," part of Wordsworth's Lyrical Ballads.
