Portinscale is a short walk into Keswick (20 minutes) with limited amenities of its own. Nice cafe (downstairs from Braeside) a pub (which we didn't try) and boat hire from the marina but not a lot else (which suited us fine).

Braeside is a very practical set up for a walking holiday with generous living space for 6. Feels like the real home of a travelling couple with an interest in art who have family to stay. Kitchen pretty well equipped, though if you're a keen cook you might consider bringing some decent knives with you (as ever)! Storage space for non-fridge food a bit limited, though the fridge freezer was big enough for our needs. Could do with a hob-to-oven casserole dish too IMO. Bedrooms are a good size and have what is needed, though some furniture here not of the same high standard as found elsewhere but definitely good enough. En suite excellent and main bathroom also fine - lack of proper shower here a slight issue.

Parking worked well for a family with 2 cars.

A place we immediately felt at home in, clean and well thought out with very helpful and welcoming owners who were available when needed. Disappointed to find it is already booked for next year!
