Discover a luxury property in the Lakeland’s village of Portinscale, an ideal base for exploring all four corners of this vast and wonderful national park. Just a short walk from the calm shores of Derwentwater and with the bustling market town of Keswick close by, this property is perfectly poised for getting the very most out of the local area. At home, six guests will want for nothing in a unique three-bedroom property that’s been lovingly decorated with comfort and style in mind. Enjoy views across the hills and bodies of water from its first-floor lounge and kitchen, ideal for plotting adventure-filled days ahead.

Step inside and discover a bright hallway with majestic staircase which leads to the first floor. Here you’ll find both kitchen-come-diner and an ever-comfortable lounge, both of which have had no expense spared when it comes to amenities. Decorated with neutral themes and stylish accents, the lounge boasts views across Derwentwater. Sink into a cushy sofa or armchair with the Smart TV, Blu-Ray and wireless speakers on-hand for entertainment. Refreshments can be enjoyed both morning and night in the kitchen, with a Nespresso coffee machine promising that early morning beverage and a wine cooler at the ready for your evening tipple.

Find plenty to do without jumping in the car here in the northern Lakes. You’re mere metres away from a welcoming village pub in the village of Portinscale, as well as the market town of Keswick (1 mile) with its museums, independent shops and quality eateries. Waterside walks around Derwentwater lay waiting to be enjoyed (1 mile), whilst the similarly attractive Ullswater Lake can be found slightly further away (15 miles). True outdoorsmen will also no doubt jump at the prospect of exploring Skiddaw (6 miles), Helvellyn (9.5 miles) and Scafell Pike (13 miles).

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
