    Directions to Nichol End

    Nichol End is situated on the North Western shores of Derwentwater, we are about 1/4  of a mile outside portinscale, and about 2 miles form Keswick.


    Keswick Launch calls regularly - see here, we are stop no 7. Or pull up in your own boat and leave it on the beach while you visit our shop or café. (please do not leave your boat on the end of the south jetty as this is where the Launch pulls in - leave it on the beach or small pontoon and notify shop staff that it is there, just in case we need to move it!)


    On the Derwentwater round the lake walk, and a tiny detour from the cumbria way and coast to coast routes. Good for Catbells, Newlands and Braithwaite. Only half an hours walk from Keswick.


    We are 20 miles west of Penrith (M6 - Junction 40) on the A66. Turn off the A66 at Portinscale, then follow the road through the village of Portinscale till you see the brown signs indicating ‘Launch’ & ‘Nichol End’, turn left as indicated and you will find us at the end of the short lane.
