Self Catering Suites
Derwent House and Brandelhowe form a character Lake District building, in stone and slate, now converted to form four comfortable self catering holiday suites. We are situated in the small village of Portinscale, just one mile to the west of Keswick – the heart of the Cumbria North Lakes – and on the northern shore of Derwentwater.
All of our self catering holiday suites are homely and well equipped. Each has central heating, electric cooker, microwave, fridge (with freezer compartment – Cob has separate freezer), colour television, radio, video, DVD, music centre and free WiFI. All have off-street parking.
Just a five minute drive or 15/20 minute walk gets you to Keswick where there is an excellent supermarket “Booths” – particularly for those self catering, as well as charming shops, from antique emporia to modern fashion – and of course everything for the outdoors that anyone could require. Keswick and the surrounding area has an abundance of eating houses for all tastes.
The English Lake District is renowned for its breath-taking beauty. The Cumbrian Northern Lakes, especially around Keswick, is an excellent holiday location for walking, touring, or for simply relaxing, at any time of the year. Each season brings its own colours and delights to the stunning scenery so there’s no such thing as ‘out of or closed season’ here.
Portinscale itself has an attractive coffee/tea room (open during the summer), just a very short walk from the apartments, which also opens as an evening restaurant. Very nearby is the four star Derwentwater Hotel restaurant and The Farmers Arms public house is just a 5 minute walk away and provides excellent fare, with the local Jennings beers brewed in nearby Cockermouth.
