“Simply Fabulous!”
Reviewed 20 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015
people found this review helpful

The property is in excellent condition. It is well laid out, with thoughtful touches throughout. We loved the modern decor, soothing color scheme, high quality kitchen fixtures, efficient washer/dryer, and sumptuous sunroom. Honestly, we spent the every morning of the first week simply drinking tea and lounging in the sunroom.

Portinscale is a VERY WELCOME four minute drive (15 minute walk) outside of Keswick. If you've been to the Lake District, you know how incredibly crowded it can be. Not so in this small town. Every day our walk to the best bakery in the region was quiet, peaceful and serene. It was nothing like the obnoxious hustle and bustle, and throngs of tourists that plague downtown Keswick.

Lastly, the owner, Richard, was extremely responsive, very helpful, and determined to make our stay wonderful. While we were there, we had a bit of an internet hassle (which is common in Keswick). Not only did Richard get it fixed, but he took the initiative to upgrade to fiber! Richard's expertise in property renovation and management certainly shows through in this property.

We loved this place so much that we have officially added it to our annual tour of England, and can't wait to get back next fall. We only wish that we'd book a month instead of just two weeks.
