The Coach House is the ground-floor, 1 bedroom apartment created within the old stable block that abuts Derwent Cottage. A substantial Lakeland house, Derwent Cottage is set back from the road within secluded, landscaped gardens in the quiet village of Portinscale, 1 mile west of Keswick. The apartment is furnished and decorated to a high standard and fully equipped for 2 people. It is suitable for those with restricted walking ability and those who might need to use a wheelchair some of the time.
The Derwentwater Marina is about 5 minutes walk away and there is a good restaurant/pub in the village.
A Sun - Sun booking scheme works throughout most of the year and short breaks of any 3 or more consecutive days are available during the winter.
Arrival is after 16.00 or by arrangement and departure by 10.00.

    “Very comfortable”

    The WIFI only reaches the bedroom and it would have been nice to use it in the kitchen and lounge area. We suggest a WIFI extender is used (if not already).
