Esthwaite Water

Esthwaite Water is considered one of the smaller and less well-known lakes in the Lake District national park in northern England. It is found between the much larger lakes of Windermere and Coniston Water, in the traditional county of Lancashire; since 1974 in the administrative county of Cumbria.

To the north is the village of Hawkshead and towards the west is Grizedale Forest.
The lake covers approximately 280 acres (1.1 kmĀ²) and is known for its excellent fishing, in particular for the trout and pike there. It has been confirmed as a site of special scientific interest.

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