Manor Cottage is a lovely detached cottage for 6/8 people and 2 lucky dogs. Inside you'll find a well equipped kitchen-diner with underfloor heating, a spacious living room with wood burner and modern shower room on the ground floor. Upstairs on the first floor is the family bathroom and 3 bedrooms; there are 2 king size bedrooms and a bunk room which contains 2 sets of bunk beds. Outside the cottage has parking for 2 cars as well as a delightful lawned garden and patios at the front and back, a real bonus in Portinscale.
The charming village of Portinscale is a popular choice for a holiday and rightly so! The village has a delightful cafe, The Chalet Tea Rooms, and a friendly local pub, The Farmer's Arms, both just a 5 minute stroll from Manor Cottage. With Derwentwater within easy reach, Portinscale is ideally placed for spending a day at, in or on the water: enjoy a lakeside picnic, go wild swimming, hire a canoe or take a ride on the popular launch and let someone else do the hard work. For a bird's eye view of the lake, hike up Catbells, whilst a 20 minute walk from Manor Cottage takes you through woods to The Lingholm Kitchen and walled Garden; a beautiful estate where Beatrix Potter set some of her best loved books, which has a lovely cafe and is a perfect pitstop while you're out and about.
Walk, cycle or drive into Keswick, less than 1 mile away. Known as the adventure capital of the Northern Lakes, why not sign up for an activity with one of the local adventure companies? Try raft building, ghyll scrambling, paddle boarding - or tackle the Via Ferrata at nearby Honister Slate Mine, for the brave only! Explore the picturesque Newlands Valley before taking a scenic drive over Newlands Pass down into Buttermere for a peaceful lakeside picnic or walk the Buttermere fells with Haystacks at the southern end – Wainwright’s favourite fell.
