Walkers can enjoy the stunning views that the area provides. The town of Keswick is only a short distance away and provides some great shopping and eating experiences.
I really enjoyed my stay at the Mount. My double room was very comfortable and warm, with a stunning view of Skiddaw. Clive, Caroline, the children and cats were very welcoming and friendly and I appreciated the tasty food cooked on the aga! The delightful garden was full of birdsong, adding to the peaceful feeling in the guest house and Portinscale. It was very easy to drive to from the A66 and easy to get to some stunning walking locations. I would thoroughly recommend this B&B to anyone and look forward to my next visit.
We had a wonderful stay in the this lovely guest house. Our bedroom had a stunning view of the fells and lake, and in fact there were lovely views from all sides of the house and garden making you feel you were truly in the heart of the Lake District! We were warmly welcomed on our arrival and had fresh daffodils in our bedrooms. The rooms were clean, well furnished and very comfortable and all the bathrooms were new. The hosts Caroline and Clive were extremely welcoming, nothing was too much trouble - we hope to come back next year!
We stayed at The Mount over the Easter and Clive and Caroline were perfect hosts. The B&B is gorgeous and the rooms are really tastefully decorated with comfortable beds, luxurious bedding and great showers. Our room even had a view of the lake which was wonderful. The sausages cooked in the Aga the next morning were extra tasty. The Mount is a perfect spot to enjoy the Lakes and picturesque Portinscale is only a short walk to Keswick. I have no hesitation in recommending this B&B and will be visiting again very soon! I wish Clive and Caroline every success for the future.
The Mount has plenty of luxurious touches, but still feels warm, inviting and comfortable. I loved the views of the old cottages of Portinscale, not to mention the lake and mountain scenery that can be seen from every bedroom! Caroline and Clive seem to really enjoy sharing their home and their love of The Lakes with all who visit them. I recommend The Mount for a very happy holiday in a beautiful place from which to explore the Lake District.
