No 7 Harney Peak - Portinscale, Nr Keswick, Cumbria, The Lake District, England - Sleeps 2
Harney Peak sleeps two guests and is a traditional Lakeland building that has now been converted into apartments. It is perfectly placed for exploring this picturesque area of the Lake District National Park at any time of the year, whether you want to do it by foot, bike, car or even boat.
Portinscale is a peaceful small village nestling on the edge of Derwent Water, encapsulated by the simply stunning scenery of the northern part of the Lake District including Borrowdale Valley and the country's fourth tallest mountain, Skiddaw. Whatever the time of year, every season offers magnificent views of the valleys, fells, lakes and forests.
From the front door of the holiday home there are a number of walks, with something to suit all energy levels and ages. Here you can relax whilst enjoying the wonderful views from the water's edge (a short stroll away) or hire a kayak, canoe or rowing boat from one of the villages marinas. Alternatively, sit back and take a leisurely boat cruise across the lake from one of the jetties along the shoreline.
The village has two hotels with restaurants and a pub for eating out which are less than a five minute stroll from Harney Peak, and also a local store for stocking up on provisions and a team room both directly opposite the property.
The popular town of Keswick under fifteen minutes away by foot - a pretty walk taking you to the market town with a good range of shops, pubs, restaurants and attractions including the award winning Theatre by the Lake and the cinema. The bustling Saturday market provides a great place to shop for local produce, arts and crafts and there are a number of festivals throughout the year.
