Derwentwater Manor Apartments

Enjoying a rural position within the Derwentwater Manor Estate in the beautiful village of Portinscale, just two miles from Keswick are a collection of holiday apartments, perfectly positioned for exploring all the north of the Lake District has to offer. Ideal for hosting groups of couples, friends and families, you and your loved ones can look forward to coming together to celebrate a special occasion, as you call these wonderful properties ‘home’ as you explore the surrounding mountain fells, stunning lakes and the plethora of charming towns and villages. Each apartment has its own individual character and is tastefully furnished throughout, creating a real home-from-home aura to return to at the end of each action-packed day. Spend an afternoon or two meandering around the pretty village of Portinscale, which rests adjacent to the shores of Derwentwater, where watersport enthusiasts are well-catered for with hire of canoes, kayaks, rowing boats, dinghys and windsurfers available to enjoy the waters. From the doorstep of the apartments are a number of starting points for keen walkers to begin adventures, including the popular routes of Catbells, Causey Pike and the Coledale Horseshoe, as well as the Newlands Round. After a wonderful day of exploring, look forward to coming back to the village and visiting the Farmers Arms pub for a well-deserved pint or refuel with a meal in the delightful Chalet Restaurant. Alternatively, head to the market town of Keswick, where you can enjoy leisurely boat trips around Derwentwater, a round of golf at the town’s course or find somewhere to eat, from its large selection of fine dining eateries and cosy pubs. Other attractions within the surrounding area, which are well worth a visit, include the historical landmark of Castlerigg Stone Circle, the classic Cumbrian manor house of Mirehouse or travel slightly further afield to spend the day at the Lake District Wildlife Park, home to over a 100 species of exotic animals. Derwentwater Manor Apartments are the ultimate escape to tranquility with your friends and family.

Keswick 2 miles.

Resting a scenic drive away from the excitement of Keswick’s town centre is this wonderfully-presented ground floor apartment located in the heart of the Derwentwater Hotel, Brandlehow.

This outstanding accommodation enjoys a remote location but is within driving distance of all the majestic wonder that the North of the Lake District has to offer, set up perfectly for couples or a couple of friends.

After an action-packed afternoon, look forward to spending some well-deserved relaxation time within the spacious open-plan living space, boasting dual-aspect windows, flooding the space with natural light and providing pretty views of the surrounding gardens.

The kitchen comes with a range of quality appliances, arranged in a contemporary assortment so that you can easily cook up a storm and the dishwasher offers a helping hand afterwards.

As the evening draws to a close, look forward to catching your rest within the traditionally-styled twin bedroom, boasting good wardrobe space and access to the gleaming bathroom, where you can savour a moment of relaxation by dipping into the bathtub before curling up under the plush sheets of the bed.
