On our way from Edinburgh to London we decided to stay in Keswick. Portland House was recommended by friends and we're very glad we stayed! Hosts are very warm and friendly. The room was light, spacious and very clean - spolit with fresh tea and coffee and homemade shortbread, yum! Loads to choose from at Breakfast - get your elasticated waisted trousers on ;-)
We also loved Keswick. Done a lake cruise, hung out in the sun drinking coffee and cake, done the local railway walk to Threlkeld in the evening, beautiful and had it all to ourselves albiet some cyclists. See pics. We'll definately be going back!
