Escape for a romantic break at this lovely, accessible ground-floor apartment in a peaceful traditional stone complex of properties in the village of Portinscale. Sleeping two people in one bedroom, it’s the ideal country bolthole for a romantic couple who want to spend their days ghyll-scrambling at Derwentwater, and their evenings enjoying romantic al fresco dinners on the pretty patio.
Accessibility is key at this property. A ramp is available on request to access the entrance porch (from there, all rooms and the outside patio are easily accessible). There is also a shower chair and handrail at the bathroom. Step inside and head through into the spacious kitchen to cook up a romantic meal for two. Dine together at the table in the lounge, or head outside and dine alfresco on the patio. This is a really romantic spot with views over the tiered garden and a private section of lawn. After dinner, crack open a bottle of wine and watch the stars come out, or head inside to the lounge to snuggle up in front of the wood burner-effect electric fire. When it’s time for bed you’ll find a gorgeous master bedroom with garden views just off the hallway.
