Make your Escape with us in the beautiful Lake District!

Escapes with us offer complete retreat packages, including accommodation, catering and a range of outdoor activities; set against the stunning backdrop of the Lake District countryside on the Brathay Hall Estate at the head of lake Windermere.

Why choose an Escape with us?

An Escape with us is an opportunity to find space to relax and revitalise amongst the cosy villages, towering hills and peaceful woods of Cumbria with some of the Lake District’s most beautiful and inspiring scenery on your doorstep.

Or it's a chance to challenge yourself with exhilarating outdoor activities guaranteed to have an impact.

We offer a blend of superb accommodation, activities and a beautiful location you'd be hard pushed to find anywhere else in the UK, combined into a single custom package to suit you and your group.

What do you get with one of our Escapes?

A Brathay Escape is a complete retreat package, including accommodation, catering and activities, all hosted on the Brathay Estate in Ambleside.

We have WiFi and 4G coverage across most of our site which means escaping the day to day doesn’t have to mean being out of the loop.

Not too worried about checking Facebook? Want to ignore the news? You could always escape completely and try a ‘digital detox’, finding your own space to think and relax without distraction.

We can cater to your needs and design a package to fit what you and your group want, with a range of activities available on-site.
