Located in the sought after village of Portinscale is Osprey Cottage, a charming 18th century retreat for up to 4 people. The welcoming accommodation includes a well equipped kitchen and a cosy living-dining room with a feature wood burning stove. Also on the ground floor is a handy shower room. Upstairs on the first floor you'll find the 2 lovely bedrooms, a bunk room and a kingsize room with its own en-suite shower room. As well as private parking for 2 cars and a shed for storing bikes, there's also a delightful patio area with outdoor furniture, perfect for dining al fresco.

Rightly popular with locals and visitors alike, Portinscale is sure to delight. The village boasts a friendly pub, The Farmers Arms - just around the corner from the cottage, and a fantastic cafe, The Chalet Tea Rooms - just a 5 minute walk away. There are plenty of lovely picturesque walking opportunities on offer straight from the front door. From lakeside strolls along the shores of Derwentwater to fells such as Catbells and Causey Pike, there's a route for everyone. Keswick is just over a mile's walk away so why not leave the car where it is and head into town on foot.  Indulge in some retail therapy, or treat yourselves to an evening out and take in a film at the local cinema or a show at the renowned Theatre by the Lake.

Osprey Cottage has a shed for storing bikes, ideal if you like exploring on 2 wheels. Head to nearby Whinlatter Forest which has 3 mountain bike trails to choose from (as well as 9 woodland walking trails) or cycle through the beautiful Newlands Valley to picturesque Buttermere; with either Newlands Pass or Honister Pass to tackle, you'll have earned some homemade cake or ice cream from Sykes Farm cafe when you get to the other side. Whatever you decide you to do during your stay, Osprey Cottage will be a welcome home from home to retreat to.
