A well-presented and contemporary first floor property set in the centre of Portinscale, with local amenities on your doorstep. A great retreat for couples or family looking to explore the Lakes.

Fantastically positioned in the pretty village of Portinscale, this gorgeous abode is surrounded by places to explore. Sleeping six guests across three bedrooms, escape with your adventurous friends and family members and head out to scenic spots including Derwentwater Marina (less than half a mile), Skiddaw (6 miles) and Ullswater (17.5 miles). Return home from days in the great outdoors and enjoy a coffee from the machine whilst cosying up by the pebble effect electric fire.

Arrive at this charming bolthole, pull up in the private parking space (for one car) and unload your bag. After entering the hallway, climb stairs and head inside to make yourselves at home instantly. Elegant style and sophisticated design flow throughout, creating perfect spaces in which to be sociable and to unwind in after adventurous days. Find a spot on the sofa and curl up in front of the TV or connect to the wireless speakers and enjoy a lively boogie and a tipple with fellow guests to celebrate quality time spent together. Spy Derwentwater from the lounge before heading through to the beautiful kitchen/diner where the coffee machine helps to kick start early mornings and the wine cooler keeps your tipples chilled on your return. Cook up a storm, plate up and raise a toast before tucking in and topping up your glasses. When it’s time to rest weary heads and say goodnight, sneak off to bed in one of three exquisite bedrooms. Two of these reside up a flight of stairs where you can also find a family bathroom and shower room. There is additional roadside parking nearby.

Close to a plethora of glorious landscapes, throw on your hiking boots and head out to explore. Tucked between Skiddaw and Derwentwater is the bustling town of Keswick, visit its twice-weekly markets or treat yourselves to a meal out at one of its fine eateries. Summit Skiddaw (6 miles) where your 931m ascent will be rewarded with panoramic views or take it easy and hop on the Ullswater Steamer at Ullswater (17.5 miles) for a cruise around the second largest lake in England.

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.
