“Lakeland magic”
Reviewed November 15, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

3 generations of our family stayed at the Mount for 5 days in mid August, to celebrate a birthday and spend time in the great outdoors. We were very, very fortunate with the weather. We were even more fortunate with the Mount. It is absolutely fantastic. Caroline and Clive are the perfect hosts. They've created a beautiful place to stay - spacious, light, and a wonderful blend of the traditional (some great bits of early 20th century furniture) and the very modern (the bathrooms are superb). Their attention to detail is astonishing - every guidebook and map you could dream of, lovely art spread all round, Lakeland soaps, glorious welcome basket full of local and homemade goodies.

“Lovely welcoming stay”
Reviewed August 3, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We have just returned from an 8 night stay, we were a party of 10 ranging from ages 10 to 74. The accommodation was first class, very welcoming, homely, spacious (we all loved the dining room which could easily accommodate all 10 of us when we had meals). It was filled with lots of information, and activities/games perfect for family time, with many personal touches. Lovely treat basket on arrival and big bunch of flowers. Portinscale is a peaceful village, within a short walk to Keswick, and 2 marinas at Derwent Water a few minutes walk away. It is a perfect location for cycling and walking, and ideal for discovering the Lakes. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and didn't want to leave! We would definitely return in the future. Clive and Caroline are lovely owners and nothing was too much trouble, Caroline even accepted our grocery delivery before we arrived and put it all away!

“Home away from home!”
Reviewed July 26, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed at the Mount for 5 days and it was a lovely break for the whole family. A short walk away from Keswick town, the location is ideal as it is not on a busy road, and has such beautiful views of the mountains and lake from the bedrooms.
The house had everything we needed for our family including cuddly toys for our little daughter, and such lovely books and there was a wonderful welcome basket left for us.

Thank you Clive and Caroline, we will surely come back!

“A perfect retreat”
Reviewed July 24, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Our four days stay was peaceful and idyllic from the usual hurstle and burstle. Each room was made very cosy with novels or geographical maps to assist you with planning your treks and sightseeing,down to hot water bottles; if you needed them.
The kids enjoyed playing with different toys and puzzles in the house.
At the end of the stay,
we did not want to leave! We hope to visit again.

“lovely spot-close to many attarctions”
Reviewed June 1, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had the most lovely room with a stunning aspect over Derwent water, which was a short walk away. We enjoyed kayaking and it looked like there was plenty on offer to enjoy the water in other ways!. Took in Cat Bells and were blessed with the most glorious sunshine.

Our hosts were a delight, very knowledgeable of the local surrounds and what was on offer. Nice to be within a stones throw of Keswick but away from the hustle and bustle.

Hope to visit again as soon as we can!

“If only I could have stayed longer ....”
Reviewed June 1, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Had a wonderfully relaxing stay in the Mount for a few days. Clive & Caroline are delightful hosts with a passion and enthusiasm for the Lakes and with a growing knowledge of the best places to visit and the variety of activities on offer.
Overall I had a very comfortable stay in beautiful surroundings and only wish I could have stayed longer. I will be back!

“A wonderful warm welcome in a stunning spot!”
Reviewed June 1, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We've just come back from a short stay at the Mount and had a wonderful time. We had a long journey but it was definitely well worthwhile.

The Mount is located in an ideal position to explore the north Lakes. There are stunning views all around and within a short walk or drive you can find your way down beautiful valleys or up craggy mountains. If you're not feeling quite so energetic you could just kick back and relax with a lakeside cup of tea. We were really taken with the lakes. We manage to drag our 3 small children up Mt Catbells which is only a few minutes from the house... Just enough of a challenge!

The mount itself is lovely. There are stunning views from every window. It's quite and relaxing yet there is everything you might need. Keswick is only a 15-20 minute walk away. You can park right outside. The gardens are lovely. The rooms are comfortable and tastefully decorated. Everything is clean and tidy and the en suite bathrooms are very good. The welcome was lovely and Clive and Caroline made us feel very at home. They seem very knowledgeable about the local area and were able to help us find suitable walks to do with the children. They recommended a boat trip to us but we didn't have time.

The Mount is thoroughly recommended and we definitely plan to return!
