Return to Appletree.
This was our third visit for a family of seven. we have always found that Appletree offers the utmost comfort and excellent facilities (the two children love the garden space!). We find Portinscale is sufficiently off the beaten track that peace and quiet is there if required and walks are readily accessible. Our only observation was that the en-suite shower was not functioning properly (thermostat?) however, George, the handyman, who had come to cut the grass, was making adjustments. A most enjoyable week.

Thank you so much for your 5-star review of Appletree! We love that this is your third visit for you and your family! We are so happy that each time you visit you find it has excellent facilities and offers the utmost comfort. We hope your children enjoyed playing in the garden! Portinscale is a beautiful village and with Appletree being located in the upper side, it is quiet and away from the busy crowds. If you ever experience any issues, please contact us as we are a small local agency only a couple minutes away from our cottages. We are so glad you had a most enjoyable week and we hope to welcome you back again soon! Best Wishes, Keswick Cottages

Appletree Haven
We've been coming to Appletree Cottage for many years as it suits our needs perfectly. For a start it's in a fantastic location for access to Keswick and the surrounding countryside. There are soo many walks straight out of the door that you could manage for a week without a car! It's always clean and tidy and well presented. The views overlooking Skiddaw from the front window and Cat Bells/Barrow Hill from the rear are stunning. Easy off road parking for 3 cars and a small enclosed garden for the dog make it ideal for us. Looking forward to coming back next year.

Thank you so much for your review of Appletree! We love that you're returning guests and have been coming for many years. Situated in Portinscale, you are in a quiet location and only a 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk to Keswick. We are so happy that upon arrival you found it tidy, clean and well presented. It offers amazing views of the surrounding fells. The on-site parking is a great feature and the secure garden is perfect for you to enjoy on a sunny day and for your dog to explore. We hope you had another perfect stay here and we can't wait to welcome you back next year! 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.
