Surrounded by walks, fells, lakes and more, Portinscale is a lovely place to call home and is quieter than the nearby town of Keswick so you can enjoy the bustle before returning for a quiet evening.

After adventurous days in the great outdoors, treat a loved one to a romantic evening at the Theatre by the Lake (2 miles) or simply enjoy a night at the movies after a meal out in Keswick. Close to the stunning lake of Derwentwater, hop on a boat at the local marina and visit the surrounding villages or walk the edge of the lake and explore on foot. If you fancy a gentle but rewarding climb that treats you to panoramic views, from Hawse End, head up Catbells which lies 3 miles from your door. The nearby adventure centre (2 miles) is a great place to visit if you fancy an exhilarating day of climbing, ghyll scrambling or canoeing to name just a few activities.

Sharing the space with other apartments in the building, leave boots and coats in the drying area before heading inside to your welcoming home from home. The open-plan living space in this ground-floor apartment is light and neutral creating a lovely space in which to spend all of your time when you’re not outside exploring. Relax in the inviting armchairs, Perfectly positioned in front of the Smart TV, enjoy film nights and pile the coffee table with treats. For a lazy afternoon, pluck a book from the shelf or simply admire the wonderful views through the window which reach far across to the majestic fells. Find all you need to cook up delicious feasts for two and if you’re planning a picnic or two, there are lunch boxes and a flask provided so you can indulge in a homemade tasty treat on the go. The kitchen is well-equipped with a fan-assisted oven with an automatic gas hob, dishwasher, fridge with freezer compartment and microwave. After dining at the table for two and popping open a bottle to share, head to bed for a cosy night’s sleep in the double bedroom. The bedroom is decorated in calming pastel tones with pretty patterns and a charming bench seat next to the window - a great place to sip your morning coffee whilst watching TV or admiring the views. Freshen up in the en-suite shower room with WC before heading out for a fun-filled day.

If you fancy an al fresco breakfast in the sun and the fresh air, step onto the patio where you can sit amid pretty plants and herbs for use during your stay. Catching the sun, this is a lovely place to enjoy an evening tipple and views reach over the private parking area to the fells. If you’re adventuring your way around the Lake District on two wheels, lock your bike safely in the lockable storage area which is shared with the other apartments and leave any wet clothes in the drying room located next to number 7.

We highly recommend this property. It was clean and everything had been thought of. Nice to have a pint of milk in the fridge on arrival and a bottle of wine too! The property was in a good place to visit the Lakes with Keswick a short drive or walk away. A place to relax in and we will visit again.

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
