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.

A warm and genuine welcome from the loveliest of hosts. Lots of special touches like Catherine's home made biscuits and raspberry gin liquere in our very comfortable room. Quality bathroom with lovely toiletries, comfortable sitting room, tasty breakfast with home made jam and lemon curd. All super clean and a great place to stay. Highly recommended.

had 3 nights here in Portinscale near Keswick. The owners Christine and Stuart were amazing, the attention to detail was fabulous. There was a couple staying who had several dietry problems, which were more than catered for. Local knowledge for walks and views was exceptional. Keswick was a 20 min walk away, which was handy for shops and night life.... More

We have just got back from 3 wonderful nights at Lake View Guest House, our first stay here but, hopefully not our last. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome, nothing seemed too much trouble for Stuart & Catherine our hosts. The room was very warm, spacious and comfortable, the guest lounge was warm and... More

Stayed here for one night - last minute decision to stay in the Lakes, and was found this place by tourist information in Keswick. Only a stone's throw from Keswick, but away from the noise and bustle of the town. Really comfortable room, great service and breakfast. Choice of two very different eating places in the village. Why stay in... More

We have just had 2 nights at this lovely B&B and are already planning our next visit. On arrival we were greeted with fresh tea and coffee and home made cake and a very warm welcome. Rooms are much more spacious than standard and the bathroom had both a powerful shower and a bath....which we used for a long soak... More

We have just literally returned from a 4 night stay at Lake View. Whilst we have been regular visitors to the lakes over the years this was our first time actually staying in the northern lakes. We wanted to walk in Borrowdale and used this lovely guesthouse as our base. What a wonderful choice it was everything was just right,... More

We just came back from our Easter Break in Lake View and we'll highly recommend it! We were a family of five, 2 couples and a little toddler at 2 years old, and we felt as if we were staying at our own house. Rooms are spacious and absolutely spotless with good size bathrooms. There's a big fire place in... More
