Portinscale — 4 nights

Nestled on the western shore of Derwentwater, Portinscale serves as a perfect base for a walking holiday in the English Lake District.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Ennerdale Water and Place Fell. Visit St Bega's Church and Castlerigg Stone Circle for their historical value. There's still lots to do: take some stellar pictures from Walla Crag, tour the pleasant surroundings at Catbells Lakeland Walk, hike along Central Fells, and explore the activities along Thirlmere.

Warrington to Portinscale is an approximately 2.5-hour car ride. You can also drive. Expect a daytime high around 9°C in March, and nighttime lows around 5°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Fri) to allow enough time to drive back home.

Keswick is an English market town and civil parish, historically in Cumberland, and since 1974 in the Borough of Allerdale in Cumbria. The town, in the Lake District National Park, just north of Derwentwater, and 4mi from Bassenthwaite, had a population of 4,821 at the time of the 2011 census.There is considerable evidence of prehistoric occupation of the Keswick area, but the first recorded mention of the town dates from the 13th century, when Edward I of England granted a charter for Keswick's market, which has maintained a continuous 700-year existence. In Tudor times the town was an important mining area, and from the 18th century onwards it has increasingly been known as a holiday centre; tourism has been its principal industry for more than 150 years. Its features include the Moot Hall; a modern theatre, the Theatre by the Lake; one of Britain's oldest surviving cinemas, the Alhambra; and the Keswick Museum and Art Gallery in the town's largest open space, Fitz Park. Among the town's annual events is the Keswick Convention, an Evangelical gathering attracting visitors from many countries.
