About the neighbourhood

Portinscale is the perfect starting place to explore the Lake District, in particular the Northern Fells and lakes. There are a variety of walks right from the front door, and it's a five minute walk to Derwentwater, where you can explore its shores on foot or take the launch around the lake into Borrowdale.

Portinscale is well served by three hotels, a pub and two cafes and a Bistro, all offering varied menus and good selections of beverages. A one-minute walk down the road will find you at The Farmer's Arms, a well presented village pub with a smart bar area and plenty of character.

Portinscale also has a popular marina with all manner of watersports available just a few minutes stroll from the front door. The cottage is a great starting point for hundreds of walk...
