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 &...

My husband and I with our teenage son stayed here for two nights at half-term in a double and a single room respectively. It was a very pleasant stay in good quality rooms with a nicely cooked breakfast. The location was very convenient for walking or driving into Keswick (take a torch if you are walking in the dark; we... More

Stayed a couple of nights in mid November with my partner(romantic weekend), could quite easily have stayed longer. Lovely welcome on arrival, rooms were very well decorated and equipped. Excellent breakfast, one of the best I've had in the Lake district. Great relaxing walk to Keswick (about a mile) for a wide choice of bars and restaurants but you needn't... More

A really comfortable, welcoming guest house. Very quiet. Well maintained. Rooms were excellent and well equipped. Breakfast was very good with a nice choice of food. Only a short walk from Keswick. Two minutes from the nearest pub which sold nice food. Would stay again.
