Fantastic food - (We've not had a better breakfast anywhere Catherine, and it's so nice that you buy in beans specially for one... More

On a revisit to this area of the Lakes in October 2015 , we chose to stay in Portinscale due to its quiet location but close proximity to Keswick which is a short walk. We received a wonderfully warm welcome from Stuart when we first arrived , and enjoyed a coffee along with home made cake in front of the... More

A lovely B&B in the quiet and peaceful village of Portinscale. We were two couples travelling together and were thrilled that we chose to stay at the Lake View. We were warmly welcomed by Catherine and Stuart and well taken care of for the three days we stayed. The rooms were a good size, comfortable beds and very, very quiet.... More

We have stayed in plenty of B&Bs over the years and this is one of the very best. Starting with the facilities, the house was immaculate. The (king size) bed was really comfortable. The bathroom was very clean. All the small details which make the difference between very good and superb had been thought of. The main thing, though, is... More

Friendly, comfortable BnB, lovely breakfast, and the perfect location for me. Off road parking ideal as during 7 day stay some days didn't use the car as lots of lovely walks from Portinscale. Short walk into Keswick for shops - restaurants etc. Would definitely stay at Lake View again. Evening meals are available by booking and menu looks lovely -... More

We stayed at Lake View recently and although it is only a pleasant 20 minute walk into the buzz of Keswick, it is a haven of peace and tranquillity. Stuart greeted us on arrival and made us feel very welcome, with tea and cake provided in the lounge to settle us in. The guesthouse is lovely, very homely, comfortable and... More

We were welcomed by Catherine upon arrival who showed us round, and showed us to our room, we stayed in room 3, and had an excellent view of the lake. The room itself was spotless and huge, the room was well equate and had a large... More

What a fantastic stay! This home from home gem is close to Keswick town centre with easy access to local attractions/walks. Catherine and Stewart's warm hospitality is first class! Their attention to detail meant we wanted for nothing. By far, the best B&B we've ever visited. Will definitely go back and have already recommended it to friends. Thank you so... More
