  • "Fabulous property - clean and easily accessible."

    Would definitely return.

  • "We had a lovely week at this property, which had everything we needed, and was comfortable throughout."

    We had minor inconvenience with the dishwasher being faulty and the bluetooth speaker not working, but these didn't really detract from an enjoyable and comfortable stay.

  • "This is a gem."

    It is only 8 minutes from FellFoot on Windermere. The property is quite large. Three big bedrooms and great downstairs living space. Light and airy. The kitchen had everything you could need and a few more things thrown in. Clean and tidy. If you look it up on google maps don't be put off by the road being close. It wasn't loud and we didn't notice it. Will definitely be back.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Portobello, just a shame there was no way to communicate with the owners, as Sykes were well below par in the customer service dept and it did cause us problems during our holiday."

    The kitchen was well equipped and we loved the quality of the decor. Sitting in the garden watching the wildlife was fab and our dog Teddy was so settled. Shame about the football table being broken when we arrived but we could overlook that. Definitely would visit again but not through Sykes and would be better if there was a way to contact the owners nearer to the arrival date. Thanks you.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Portobello. We are sorry that you were dissatisfied with the customer service you received from Sykes. We always try our best to make our guests happy so we are sorry that you weren't on this occasion. The owner relations team - Lakes Cottage Holidays Property Owner

  • "Well located and spacious."

    The garden is very steep but well maintained (dog could escape if it wanted to). The extra sitting room in the attic was a bonus. Parking for a second car is on the road but not too far from the house, didn’t have an issue as long as you respect the residents spaces. Unusually there were no basic cleaning projects provided so we did end up buying some and no welcome treats, which is always a nice touch. Otherwise though no issues and enjoyed the property, especially as it’s a short drive to Windermere.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Your comments have been passed on. We hope to see you again soon. The owner relations team - Lakes Cottage Holidays Property Owner

    It’s easy to get to Windermere as just a short drive and there is a little park to walk to .

  • "Portobello was a spacious and comfortable property that was always a pleasure to return to after a busy day."

    The kitchen was very spacious and well equipped. Books, games, maps and guides to local attractions were plentiful. The two main bedrooms were spacious and light with large and very comfortable beds. The location was excellent for access to the Southern Lakes, being on a quiet side-road and with quick access to the main road. The garden, although steep and terraced, enjoyed sunshine for most of the day with several places to sit.

  • "Extremely well equipped property, very tastefully furnished."

    Felt home from home. Really good for our dog to be able to roam the garden without worry of him escaping. Excellent bathrooms and showers. Bedrooms a very good size and very comfortable. Great selection of books, games and dvd's. We would definitely return to this property.

The property

Tucked away in the picturesque village of Lindale in the Lake District National Park is this characterful, semi-detached Georgian house, Portobello.

Stylishly presented with high ceilings and period features, this stone-built cottage is set over three floors with spacious living areas and a private courtyard, ideal for a group of friends or family of six.

Find an off-road parking space upon arrival to make yourself at home with ease.

Be welcomed into the sitting room, decked with artwork, three plush sofas and a Smart TV, with the warmth of the electric flame effect fire for added ambiance.

Step through into the dining room to gather the family together for hearty meals by the gas stove after the day's adventures; cook books are provided in the book shelf for budding chefs to try something new!

Whilst cooking in the beautiful, well-equipped kitchen, complete with a range cooker, dishwasher and a breakfast table to keep the chef company, you'll feel the warmth of underfloor heating on the porcelain tiles.

A handy utility is just next door to keep boots, coats and quickly wash walking gear in the washer/dryer ready for a new day!

The back door also leads to the garden with a courtyard and outdoor seating to sip a cold glass of wine on warmer nights.

Climb the stairs to the first floor where three wonderfully presented bedrooms await sleepy heads; a super-king-size zip/link hosts an en-suite shower room, alongside a king and a twin, all with high ceilings and charming décor.

Start your day with a hot shower in the family bathroom and look forward to a well-earned bubble bath after the day's hike.

Completing Portobello is the second-floor games room for guests to hideaway with a film on the 54" Curved Smart TV, a good book, or challenge their loved one to a game of table football!

Start your mornings with an alfresco breakfast in the garden area whilst you plan the day's adventures.

You have access to a children's play area and The Royal Oak, a lovely traditional pub to take a break from cooking and enjoy their lovely meals.

Lindale is also an ideal location for touring the Lake District, including Grange-over-Sands for a stroll around the Ornamental Gardens, dining at charming tea rooms or scenic vistas along the promenade.

Head to Cartmel to try the iconic sticky toffee pudding and visit the well-known racecourse, whilst the bustling Windermere is within easy reach!

Embark on a boat tour over the breath-taking lake, see famous characters at The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction or hike up to Orrest Head for unforgettable views.

For a base you'll love returning to again and again, book your stay at Portobello.

About the location

LINDALE

Grange-over-Sands 2 miles; Cartmel 3.6 miles; Windermere 12 miles.

Lindale, a small village situated in the south of The Lake District National Park, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and just a few miles from Lake Windermere, makes the area a perfect holiday destination. Set amidst the charm of The Southern Lakes, this attractive village, with handy gastropub, The Royal Oak, makes an inspiring choice from which to enjoy the whole of this magical area. Just a few minutes drive brings you to Cartmel, a delightful village to wander around, famed for its delicious sticky toffee pudding, 12th century priory, National Hunt race meetings and gourmet restaurants. You could also visit Grange-over-Sands, a charming seaside Edwardian town. Take a stroll on the promenade and return through the quaint narrow streets with some lovely tea rooms and specialist shops including a bakery, chocolatiers, and award winning butchers. The Lake District has so much to offer, there is sailing on Windermere, cycling in The Grizedale Forest, Go Ape Treetop adventures, Birdwatching at Leighton Moss and The Foulshaw Osprey Experience. There are also stately homes at Holker Hall, Levens Hall and Sizergh Castle and a heritage steam railway which runs from Haverthwaite to Lakeside. The Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Beauty is also a short journey away. But leaving the best till last, walking or touring in the fabulous Lake District, with its fells, lakes and tarns is an absolute must, most of which is just a short drive or walk away.
