The single room is a bit small but has everything I needed, including a very powerful shower. I was pleased that the cost of a single was only a little more than the per person rate in a double room. The cost of single rooms is my main gripe with hotels and B&Bs. Of course the double rooms were more... More

This is a super guest house just on the edge of Portinscale. It's one of those old detached houses with massive rooms that don't get built anymore. Bedroom was great - big, comfortable bed and plenty of room to relax - modern inside with usual en-suite facilities. Good TV as well, but unfortunately reception in the Lakes is always patchy...

We had a lovely two night stay at Powe House. Beautiful room within a lovely house. Room and en-suite were exceptionally clean and bed very comfortable. Bathroom was always lovely and warm and there were very nice quality toiletries (which I usually don't bother with but couldnt resist using).Breakfast was good, tasty, wholesome food. Very short drive to Keswick or... More

Warm friendly welcome, good local knowledge and nothing too much trouble. Lovely size rooms and comfy bed and great breakfast. Powe House is a great place to stay to enjoy the Northern Lakes. We would not hesitate to stay here the next time we visit the Lakes.

Portiscale is a quiet village but only a five minute drive from Keswick. Powe House is a great place to stay, lovely building and garden with ample parking. The room was very clean and comfortable and had a beautiful mountain view. Very helpful owner and the breakfast was excellent - scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, eggs benedict, croissants as well...

We had a very nice stay. The hosts were excellent with nothing a problem. They had very good local knowledge. Lovely large warm rooms and awesome shower. A great breakfast. A bit out of Keswick which we appreciated.

Powe House has to be one of our best finds in the Lake District. Andrew & Helen are the most delightful hosts, the rooms are fabulous, modern and tastefully decorated to a very high standard, and the breakfasts are just great, their "Full English" sets you up for a full day out on the hills. Positioned only a short wall... More

Beautifully restored manor house. Boutique style bedrooms with well fitted out densities. L'occitane toiletries so felt spoilt. Breakfast was the best with fantastic local Cumberland sausage. Good access to Derwentwater and walks. Would definitely recommend this for couples.

We stayed for 3 nights for a 1st, experimental, mini break after illness which has severely limited my husband's mobility. The hotel owner was very helpful and considerate in an unobtrusive way, so we soon relaxed. The accommodation, food and setting were all excellent, and the sun shone every day -- so we were very pleased we'd made the effort... More

Situated in a lovely, quiet little village a mile from Keswick with pub offering some local ales just meters away. Can start & finish walk round Derwent Water from here. Room was clean, warm & inviting with comfortable bed and power shower plus tea/coffee making facilities. Full English was quality, hot & plentiful. Host Andrew is friendly, welcoming, helpful &...
