Lake View Portinscale is a lovely place to stay. The view of the village and the lake are beautiful. The room was nice and clean and the owners made us feel right at home. They provided us with some good local tips on hikes and served some amazing food. We had a great experience and definitely recommend this place!

Marvellous Lake View
We’d originally planned to stay in August to coincide with our 40th wedding anniversary but unfortunately had to cancel last minute when I came down with Covid. So glad we rebooked. Everything about Lake View is superb, from the location in Portinscale village to the accommodation, hearty breakfast and of course the marvellous hosts, Catherine & Stuart who were warm and welcoming from start to finish.

Beautiful Guest house
Our stay at Lake View was wonderful. We had the best room facing the front with a side view of Derwent Water. The condition of the guest house is immaculate and clean. Breakfasts were very good. The owners Stuart and Katherine are very accommodating, kind and down to detail. I would recommend to anyone who want to visit Keswick.
