Christmas in Portinscale
Our second time at Appletree. It has had an update since we were last there, lovely new kitchen. It's warm, cosy ,well furnished, comfy beds & hot showers. Well placed for a short walk into Keswick. The Farmers Arms just a short stroll is a lovely family pub.There is also The Derwent Hotel & pub a short stroll away. Our only negative is the oven & hob are quite complicated even with the instructions ,we did manage eventually to cook a full Christmas dinner. Will definitely be back.

Thank you so much for your 5-star review! We love that you're returning guests and that you found the new Kitchen lovely. We checked the hob after receiving your comment and it was found to be faulty. Apologies for any inconvenience, the hob has now been replaced. Please never hesitate to contact us if there is anything you need during your stay, we are a small local agency just down the road. We hope you had a wonderful time celebrating Christmas at Appletree and we can't wait to welcome you back when you return. Best Wishes, Keswick Cottages

A LOVELY HOUSE
This was the first time we stayed in this accommodation. We have for the last 10 years stayed in a complex in Keswick centre but have found it to be getting very noisy. This was a great property to stay in, very comfortable and lovely and quiet. Dogs are allowed and there is a perfect small garden to let them out. The only very slight problem was not enough bowls and measuring jugs for cooking as we eat in every night and our stay was for 10 days. Apart from the above, it is a great place to stay and have booked again for next year.

Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy you found this a great property to stay in and that it was quiet, lovely and very comfortable. Its great that it is pet friendly, it means the whole family can come! We're sorry to hear about the lack of bowls and measuring jugs, these items have now been replenished. We love that you have already booked again for next year! We can't wait to welcome you back when you next arrive at Appletree. Best Wishes, Keswick Cottages

Lovely Property
Lovely property, perfectly situated for walks and Keswick centre. Kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need if you want to cook, but if not the pub is literally at the end of the road. Would definitely book this property again.

Thank you so much for this 5-star review! We are so happy that you found the kitchen well equipped with everything you need and that it was perfectly situated for your walks. We hope you had a brilliant time and we hope to welcome you back when you next book. Best Wishes, Keswick Cottages

Been several times over recent years and seen improvements on each occasion. Nicely decorated with a well equipped kitchen. Three bathrooms ensures everyone gets out on the fells in record time, making the most of our precious days in the beautiful Lakes. Lovely dog proof garden, decent off-street parking and a warm cozy, well insulated abode for when the Lakeland nights have a chill in the air. The property is perfectly situated away from the hustle and bustle of Keswick, yet only a short walk away (20 mins) along a dedicated footpath between the town and the village of Portinscale. Similarly you’ll find a walk in almost every direction from the property, whether it’s lowland by the side of the lake or along the dismantled railway, to high elevations like Skiddaw and Helvellyn etc. The car hardly moves all week as there’s so many fantastic trails and walks from the front door. We’re definitely coming back to stay at Appletree.
In April we had a lovely stay at Appletree. What a wonderful cottage. The house is in great condition, it has been very nicely modernised with excellent bathrooms and kitchen. Unfortunately the weather was not great so we couldn’t make use of the pretty garden. Plenty of space for 6. Pub around the corner. What more could you ask? Thoroughly recommend.
