Portinscale, Keswick, Lake District, Cumbria, England
The Beeches is in the small village of Portinscale on the outskirts of Keswick only a 20 minute walk away across country footpaths or take a trip across Derwentwater on the launch. Spacious & comfortable, equipped to a high standard for whatever weather awaits you. Large garden surrounded by a high beech hedge with a lovely patio area outside the kitchen window looking towards Skiddaw and surrounding fells. Parking on the driveway for 2 cars and a garage for storing bikes. Rear porch for wet & muddy boots. Lots of DVD's, games and toys plus a few items of interest that we like to collect. Numerous walks straight from the doorstep, up to the Newlands Valley or into Keswick and beyond.

We had a lovely holiday at the Beeches. It was comfortable, clean and very well equipped. Great with child and dog. Lots of DVDs, puzzles, games and books. My only gripe was that the details on the cottages4u said it was a 5 minute walk from the Derwentwater launch. It was more like 15-25 minutes and only then if you...

Management response:

So pleased you enjoyed your holiday at The Beeches, I have been in touch with the site you mention and asked them to update their details re times for walking into Keswick, I can get there in 20 minutes but then I do tend to walk at a brisk pace.

Portinscale has lovely cafes and marinas where water sports can be enjoyed or catch the launch at Lingholm across Derwentwater to Keswick and land at Theatre by the Lake. Village pub and Derwentwater Hotel are eating out options plus some great little tea rooms dotted about. Walkers will not need their car at all!
Getting around

Car advised
How to get there
Railway: Penrith: 20.0 km
M6 junction 40 then A66 to Keswick, do not turn off into Keswick carry on the A66 and take the westbound route at Crosthwaite roundabout, the Portinscale turn off is the second on the left, drive into the village and just past The Farmers Arms on the right hand side is the turn off for High Portinscale, The Beeches is the first house on the right behind the large beech hedge. We find reversing into the drive easier for access.
