We stayed at Portland House on our walk along the Cumbria Way and it was by far and away the best accommodation experience we had on the whole trip.
The house is in a very handy location within a couple of minutes walk of all the town centre has to offer, yet a couple of streets away from any hustle and bustle and traffic so wonderfully peaceful and quiet.
The rooms are large and airy, the en suite was modern and pristine and there was nothing we could have needed that hadn't already been thought of...from heat mats for straighteners to delicious home-made shortbread on the tea tray.
The breakfast menu was varied with lots of different options, (even the cereals had a range of seeds and fruit to mix in) and it was obvious that only quality, fresh products had been used...oh and a beautiful bowl of fresh cut fruit salad was just perfect.
The hosts Denise and Rod were very welcoming and gave us a great suggestion of a restaurant that was wonderful...great local knowledge to help you get the most our of your stay in the area.
All in all a fantastic experience!
