Another fabulous stay at Powe House. Still spotless and welcoming, truly home from home. Quiet location 15 minutes walk from Keswick town centre, with very good pub (Farmers Arms) and superb restaurant (The Chalet) within 5 minutes walk. Already booked for next time. You can start my egg now Helen!

I don't normally chose to stay in B & Bs, but this guest house is somewhere I would return to. It is comfortable and quiet with all facilities you could ask for including free wifi. The breakfast is particularly good. The owners are very friendly and nothing seems to be too much trouble. It is around a 20 min walk... More

Comfortable room, superb breakfasts, friendly hosts knowledgeable about the area to suggest places to eat, visit etc. Free wifi and superb views of fells from all windows including our bedroom; yet short drive to Keswick. Also easily reachable on foot as is launch across Derwentwater. Definitely will use again if going to Lakes and highly recommended. Pub food unfussy unpretentious... More

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
