Catherine was welcoming. We stayed in room 1 which had an incredible view of the lake. The room was very clean with personal touches and the breakfast was incredible. We felt at home from the moment we arrived and would definetly come again and would highly recommend to family and friends

Fully enjoyed our stay here. Stuart was perfect host. Room spacious, very quiet and breakfast excellent and varied. Single table set up allowed guests to converse. Great value and would definitely return again.

After a few hectic hours in touristy Keswick, we were pleased to have a reservation at the much quieter Portingscale just a few minutes away. Catherine made us feel at home immediately. Lovely room, good en suite with quality toiletries. Just four rooms at Lake View so book well ahead. Breakfast is at a shared table and can be quite... More

Just spent 5 nights at Lakeview. Great hosts in Catherine and Stuart, a warm and friendly couple that made you feel you where guests in their home. Lovely relaxed atmosphere, very comfortable rooms and great breakfasts and packed lunches. Deserves an excellent rating and would definitely go back. Mark R.
