From the owner

The Beeches is a fab house in the small village of Portinscale on the outskirts of Keswick only a 20 minute walk away across a country footpath or take a trip across Derwentwater on the launch. Very comfortable & equipped to a high standard for whatever weather awaits you. Large garden surrounded by a high beech hedge with a lovely patio area outside the kitchen window looking towards Skiddaw and surrounding fells. Rear porch for wet & muddy boots. Smart TV plus lots of games and toys and a few items of interest that we like to collect. Numerous walks straight from the doorstep, up to the Newlands Valley, Winlatter Forest or into Keswick and beyond.

Easy parking on the drive for 2 cars and 3 at a push! Garage can be used to store bikes.

Recent guests comment "Open the curtains in the morning and take in the breathtaking views, stroll to The Chalet for breakfast then hit the fells, loved our stay at The Beeches"

Owner's reply:
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at The Beeches, which sits on a large corner plot with fabulous views, especially as you managed to get a signal on your phone in Portinscale when you were lost in the village on arrival and rang me to give you directions. Unfortunately you didn't contact us again, though our various contact details are in the welcome file and being local, if you had contacted me, I could have arranged recovery/repair for your car within the hour! Our welcome file gives full instructions regarding the house but we would urge guests to contact us directly should they have any queries as we have been helpful and accommodating owners for 15 years.
