The Escape is just that! An escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. A peaceful haven in a small corner of the lovely village of Portinscale, you can retreat from modern life here. Leave your car for the week and explore the area at a slow pace on foot. Notice nature unfurling. There are walks aplenty right from the door step. The shores of Derwentwater are a five minute stroll away. Walk along the woodland paths by the lake for a mile or so and you'll come to Catbells with Maiden Moor beyond - a worthy ridge climb that gives you panoramic views towards Keswick and the surrounding fells.
The cottage itself is the perfect Escape. With no TV and no wifi you can get a digital detox - don't forget to bring a deck of cards for your trip. The cottage offers stylish simplicity in a beautiful area. And if you want to enter the world of modern electronics then The Chalet Tearooms, a minute's walk away, has wifi that you can log onto.
The market town of Keswick is a 20 minute walk away, or you can hop on the launch at Nichol End and take a boat into town. Here there are shops, restaurants, a climbing wall, cinema and plenty of activities to choose from.
