Few villages in the Lake District have as perfect a location as Portinscale. Within a 20 minute walk from Keswick, but enjoying rural peace within marvellous scenery, Dalegarth House in Portinscale has all the amenities including a stop for the famous Derwentwater Launch which offers a five minute boat trip to Keswick. Everywhere you look is a photograph – towards Borrowdale, the crags and fells surrounding the lake, the local forest walks through ancient woodland and so much more. Dalegarth House invites you to share in all of this whilst enjoying a stylishly comfortable break with the best of food, the most comfortable of furnishings, the warmest of welcomes and free parking.
