A traditional village cottage for five, situated in Portinscale, less than 300 metres from the shores of Derwentwater and the marina, with its opportunities for water sports and boat hire.

Enjoy walks around beautiful Derwentwater or experience the magic of the Lake District from the water, when you stay at this welcoming, three-bedroom cottage at Portinscale. Up to five guests can stay at the property, which also benefits from being just 2 miles from lively Keswick. Head into the market town to browse its independent shops, choose between a range of eateries and even go to the cinema or the Theatre by the Lake. Book a cruise out on Derwentwater or choose to hire a boat yourselves from the marina close to the cottage. Embark on a range of walks from your front door, including following the famous Coledale Horseshoe or climbing up to Catbells, which captures picturesque far-reaching views.

Descend the steps and let yourselves into this charming country cottage. The kitchen has everything you will need during your stay. There is an electric hob and oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. Make yourselves a cup of coffee and then wander on through into the lounge/diner next door. Light the wood burner in here on chilly days, settle yourselves on the sofa and chairs and perhaps switch on the Smart TV and DVD. Gather at the table to enjoy your meals together, play a hand of cards or plan the following day’s activities. Follow the staircase up to the first floor to find your three bedrooms, which include a double, a single and a twin room. The bathroom is also found on the first floor and has a shower over the bath and WC.

Clean and well located property. Nice quiet village and possible to walk to Keswick. Some minor improvements could make this a 5 star review. You might need to source your own firewood if you want to use the log burner stove. Watch out for steps to back door in the dark.

After an issue with a different booking Holiday Cottages were wonderful in helping us relocate to Stable Cottage and put in a lot of time to help us - thank you. We loved the cottage, so homely and cosy and warm. Felt like home. Ideal for Catbells walking and not far to drive to other lakes. We walked to Keswick several times and it was just under Read more10 in a taxi to get there on an evening. Great to have a parking space, some outside patio space and a log fire. Would return tomorrow! Hide

A very clean comfortable cottage. Nicely furnished and in a wonderful village. The cottage, like many cottages, is fairly dark inside but also very cosy and easy to heat. Thanks.
