The rare chance to live a castaway lifestyle yet be only a stone's throw from civilisation has become available after a tiny island went on the market.
Derwent Island is a secluded seven acre retreat that has an 18th century home hidden among the woodland.
The isle sits just 150 yards from the shoreline of the Lake District's Derwent Water and half-a-mile from the busy town of Keswick.
The unique location is owned by the National Trust which rent's out the the grade II listed, six bed property on a long term let for in excess of £40,000 a year.
The lease has become available for the first time in 10 years.
