Absolute Escapes wants to give you just that. An escape to the Lakes.
Where you can forget all your troubles, immerse yourself in nature and get away from everyday life.
Fancy yourself an intrepid explorer? Want to conquer mountains, navigate forests and cross lakes? Or just curl up comfy and cosy, away from it all with those you love?
Whether you want to get properly stuck into the Lake District, or just enjoy the peace and quiet, we’ll help you find the best places.
The Lake District is a sprawling expanse of fells, water, forests and more. It’s easy to get lost, whether that’s physically or getting lost figuring out what to do and where to go. Absolute Escapes helps you learn where’s best to stay and visit during your time in the Lakes.
With our help you’ll discover somewhere to make memories you’ll cherish and want to revisit again and again.
Absolute Escapes has been in business for 10 years, and many customers have been here just as long.
Unlike other travel agents or holiday letting agencies, we offer a truly personal service.
This is because director Shirley Thompson deals with every aspect of the business herself. From finding cottages, finalising bookings, and posting on social media.
Returning customers know her by name and personally interact with her on the Facebook page. In many ways, using Absolute Escapes is more like borrowing a relative’s holiday home than using a travel agent.
Shirley loves the Lake District and wants to do all she can to share it with others. Her enthusiasm for the area is infectious and is the main reason many of Absolute Escapes’ customers from day one are still here today.
Fancy seeing what the Lakes has to offer? Or already been and what to delve a little deeper? Why not give Shirley a ring or an email? She’s more than happy to have a chat and recommend her favourite places to visit.
