We’re going Electric!

To mark the upcoming installation of electric car charging sockets at the Borrowdale Gates, during August we are offering our guests an exclusive 1/3rd off Twizy car rental (one half day or one full day) from Keswick Brewing Company.

Book Directly with The Borrowdale Gates for August and you could find yourselves enjoying a 1/3rd off the hire of a Twizy car and enjoying the sights and sounds of the Lake District. You can drive your Twizy without having to worry about driving your car around cyclists and walkers and all the stresses of parking a larger vehicle in high season.

With a range of 100km, the Twizy is a 2 seat electric vehicle, perfect for navigating our narrow country lanes during the busy summer season. Easy to park in a tight spot too!

If you have never driven a Twizy you will not want to miss this opportunity. If you have already driven one you will know what fun they are. Tethera is an electric Twizy and looks just like a sheep. He is part of a flock of 10 which are part of the See More project which help people to enjoy our great landscapes with a reduced environmental impact. You can hear the sounds of your lovely surroundings as you do not get the normal car noises.

Tethera’s name comes from the Cumbrian dialect for counting sheep. Yan, Tyan, Tethera, Methera, Pip, Sethera, Lethera, Hovera, Dovera and Dec are the numbers from 1 to 10. Tethera is number 3. Tethera can take 2 people for a day of fun (the driver at the front and the passenger sat behind)

Do your bit to look after the beautiful Lake District with a drive in a stress free, low carbon car.
