Set in a residential area on a private road, Riggside is an attractive, spacious semi-detached property, providing a high standard of accommodation at any time of the year with spectacular open views of Skiddaw and the Borrowdale Valley, and lovely garden areas.
Portinscale is a small hamlet just ten minutes walk by an off-road footpath in to Keswick town centre. Portinscale has a pub, a bistro, tearooms and two marinas, with facilities for both hire and instruction for water sports. Portinscale is an ideal base for a walking holiday. Just a very few of the possibilities nearby are the Newlands Valley, the Coledale Horseshoe, the Allerdale Ramble, Causey Pike, Catbells or a gentle stroll along the shores of Derwentwater.
Keswick offers a host of shops, restaurants, pubs, cinema and live theatre, and activities such as lake cruises, golf and tennis can also be enjoyed - all without getting in the car. Keswick offers some of the finest walking in the Lake District National Park, from the high tops of Skiddaw and Helvellyn to the smaller summits of Latrigg and Whinlatter Forest Park...something for every member of the family.
