    “Fridge was tiny; place needs redecorating; one bathroom door didn't lock and the other was so stiff one guest almost got stuck inside.”

    Sofas not that comfy and kitchen could be better equipped for self catering (only sharp knife was a bread knife!). Parking was also a bit of a challenge - very tight spaces (comment that it was like a driving test!)

Enjoying a rural position within the Derwentwater Manor Estate in the beautiful village of Portinscale, just two miles from Keswick are a collection of holiday apartments, perfectly positioned for exploring all the north of the Lake District has to offer. Ideal for hosting groups of couples, friends and families, you and your loved ones can look forward to coming together to celebrate a special occasion, as you call these wonderful properties ‘home’ as you explore the surrounding mountain fells, stunning lakes and the plethora of charming towns and villages. Each apartment has its own individual character and is tastefully furnished throughout, creating a real home-from-home aura to return to at the end of each action-packed day. Spend an afternoon or two meandering around the pretty village of Portinscale, which rests adjacent to the shores of Derwentwater, where watersport enthusiasts are well-catered for with hire of canoes, kayaks, rowing boats, dinghys and windsurfers available to enjoy the waters. From the doorstep of the apartments are a number of starting points for keen walkers to begin adventures, including the popular routes of Catbells, Causey Pike and the Coledale Horseshoe, as well as the Newlands Round. After a wonderful day of exploring, look forward to coming back to the village and visiting the Farmers Arms pub for a well-deserved pint or refuel with a meal in the delightful Chalet Restaurant.
