ESCAPE TO THE LAKES FOR A WINTER BREAK

Go somewhere new with your favourite people, pack your bags and lose your signal! Here’s five reasons to plan a wintery weekend away to the picture perfect Lake District and what to take with you.

1.  HIDEAWAY IN ‘HILLTOP COTTAGE’

Retreat from city life and book into this tranquil holiday cottage full of character. Indulge in the same vistas where Beatrix Potter wrote her much-loved stories, looking down onto Lake Windermere. With the call of an owl being your only alarm, we’ll be sure you’ll have the best nights sleep.

What to Wear: Embrace the surroundings with the our ‘Sandwick Brushed Check Shirt’, (coming soon.)

 

2. SWAP YOUR PHONE FOR A PADDLE AT BROCKHOLE JETTY.

Take in the fresh lake air, switch off from your screen and launch off from the jetty at Brockhole. Choose from kayaks, Canadian canoes and rowing boats for your perfect adventure on Lake Windermere.

What to wear: Layer up with our ‘Keswick Striped Fisherman’s Jumper’ and go Nautical style.

 

3.  TRAVEL BACK IN TIME AT LAKESIDE & HAVERTHWAITE RAILWAY.

Climb aboard at Haverthwaite Station and enjoy the scenic ride - Harry Potter style! Bring along your four legged friend to take him for a run around when you stop at Ambleside.

What to wear: Smarten up for the ride with our ‘Eamont Cashmere Nehru Shirt’ (coming soon) for him and our ‘Maya Bay Nehru Shirt’ for her.

 

4. TAKE YOUR DOG FOR THE WALK OF THEIR LIFE

The North’s equivalent to Richmond Park? Swap the deer for sheep, add a few mountains and you have the beautiful Windermere countryside. Reconnect with nature as you tread the same woodland paths as those great poets whom once lived here.

What to wear: Keep warm with our 'Windermere White Check Shirt’ and our ‘Burnmoor Quilted Navy Gilet,’ (coming soon) - you haven’t got that extra layer like your furry friend!

 

5. COSY UP IN THE HARE & HOUND PUB, BOWLAND BRIDGE

You’ll never go hungry or thirsty in the Lake District with all of the proper pubs and quaint cafes around. Bring along your scrabble, grab a glass of red wine and play in front of the roaring fire on Sunday afternoon. The Hare & Hound’s garden views are nearly as good as the food, idyllic for sitting out with a pint on a crisp day. Sundowners recommended.

What to wear: Combine cosy and smart with our ‘Munro Oxford Shirt’ and our ‘Keswick Striped Fisherman’s Jumper.

 

 Explore our new Autumn range for him & her, we’ll meet you in the fresh air!
