A very good quality B&B. I judge my stay on hospitality (Rod & Denise are great friendly and considerate hosts), Breakfasts (10/10 Fresh fruit, yoghurts, cereals or traditional English is always just a as I like it) and rooms (beds very comfortable, spacious and the showers work very well.) All in all a great stay. p.s. could do with upgrading... More

Had another fabulous break at Rod and Denise's place. Spent 4 night here and had a wonderful time. Denise's baking is truly scrummy and a real treat after a day's riding and the breakfast and rooms are fantastic. Rod even managed to get the chance to come and ride with us which was lovely too as you simply feel at... More

A very friendly place to stay with lots of nice extra touches. Pot of tea on arrival with homemade cakes and shortbread every day. Bottled water in the room each day and a small torch useful coming back at night due to low level street lighting in Keswick. Spacious and very clean rooms. Good choice for breakfast with homemade jams... More

Rod and Denise were very welcoming hosts and had a cheery greeting for everybody at breakfast. Breakfast was excellent (spot on consistency of scrambled eggs that some B&Bs struggle with) and thoughtfully timed; toast when you want it, not as soon as you arrive so that it's cold when you eat it. The room was very clean, extremely comfortable, quiet... More

Denise & Rod always make us feel very welcome, the accommodation, location, food & the feeling of a home away from home is really hard to beat. Always on hand with advice on everything from walks to good local restaurants. a trip to the Lakes wouldn't be the same without a stop over at The Portland House.

We very much enjoyed our 2 night visit during our walk of the Cumbrian Way. Location was close to center of town yet still in a quiet neighborhood. Our room was large and comfortable, with the king sized bed appreciated. Denise and Rod were very welcoming and informative.
