Located in Portinscale near the marina and right on the 77/77A Keswick-Buttermere circular bus route, this B&B is ideal for a leisure break. The owners Sue and Steve offer perfect hospitality. We took adjoining dormer rooms 6 & 7, double ensuite shower and single, with views across the village to Derwent Water. Modern decor, peaceful and quiet at night, comfortable...

I would recommend Skiddaw Croft to anyone, the owners Sue and Steve were very hospitable ,friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. We stayed in room 6 in the attic space at the front of the property, the view was great, the lake to the left and mountains to the right. The room was fairly small but very clean and...

It’s really hard to believe Sue and Steve have only been running a B&B for less than two years. They are absolute naturals! Super friendly and full of great advice about the local area. We stayed for 4 nights in Room 3. The room was a really good size, the bed incredibly comfortable and the views from the bay window...

We have just returned from a fantastic weekend at Skiddaw Croft. The breakfast and cake were delicous - attention to detail with the gluten free catering hugely appreciated. The room was very comfortable for two adults, a child and a dog, and spotlessly clean. Steve and Sue were great hosts, making all of us feel at home. Thanks for a...

We stayed here for three nights. Steve and Sue were perfect hosts and gave us a very warm and friendly welcome. The guest house is spotlessly clean and serves a delicious breakfast. Our room had wonderful views of Derwent water and the fells. An excellent location for walking and touring the lakes.

We stayed for 2 nights over the weekend and were met by Sue and Steve who were so friendly. We had Room 5 which had been newly decorated and was really comfortable if a little on the small side.
