“Lovely spacious accomodation”
Reviewed March 9, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Stayed here for a long weekend in February with our family including young grandchildren.
This is a lovely spacious house with lovely views well looked after by owners who could not have been more accomodating
Very convient for several areas of the lakes found plenty to do even though the weather was wet and still recovering from the flooding, Cumbria is definately open.
Housekeeper very helpful,
Check details of provision of towels and childrens equipment as booking sites details differ.
Looking forward to visiting again.

“Comfortable, well located and pleasant house.”
Reviewed March 8, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Riggside was the perfect house for our group of 8 friends.
The house is really spacious and well equipped. It is well located, there are lots of beautiful landscapes and many pleasant walks close to the house.

Richard gave us all the information we need during our stay in order to enjoy it !

Thank you for your kind review Veronique, we love to see guests return year on year.
Looking at our stats we have over 30 families that have returned to Riggside, some as many as 6 times, I hope this is a reflection on the high standard of accommodation we deliver to our guests and of course the unbeatable location Riggside offers in the Lakes.
Hope to see you again next year
Kind regards
Richard & Lynn

Thanks for leaving the house so tidy on departure (you're not like some students we've met!)
Hope you can make it an annual event.

“Simply Fabulous!”
Reviewed September 19, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

people found this review helpful

The property is in excellent condition. It is well laid out, with thoughtful touches throughout. We loved the modern decor, soothing color scheme, high quality kitchen fixtures, efficient washer/dryer, and sumptuous sunroom. Honestly, we spent the every morning of the first week simply drinking tea and lounging in the sunroom.

Portinscale is a VERY WELCOME four minute drive (15 minute walk) outside of Keswick. If you've been to the Lake District, you know how incredibly crowded it can be. Not so in this small town. Every day our walk to the best bakery in the region was quiet, peaceful and serene. It was nothing like the obnoxious hustle and bustle, and throngs of tourists that plague downtown Keswick.

Lastly, the owner, Richard, was extremely responsive, very helpful, and determined to make our stay wonderful. While we were there, we had a bit of an internet hassle (which is common in Keswick). Not only did Richard get it fixed, but he took the initiative to upgrade to fiber! Richard's expertise in property renovation and management certainly shows through in this property.

We loved this place so much that we have officially added it to our annual tour of England, and can't wait to get back next fall. We only wish that we'd book a month instead of just two weeks.
