Perfect Location

Derwent Manor is situated in the beautiful village of Portinscale, just a mile from Keswick. In all there are 19 one and two bedroom apartments, with flexible accommodation sleeping up to 6 people. The apartments are tastefully furnished and equipped to a high specification to ensure an extremely comfortable stay. Each apartment has its own individual character and it is worth looking through the accommodation section on this site, or giving us a call, to see which one is best suited to your needs.

Great Facilities

Choose to stay at The Derwent Manor Apartments and you will enjoy two unique extra benefits: Our sister property, The Derwentwater Hotel, is located opposite the apartments and you can relax, drink, or dine in comfort if you don't fancy cooking for yourself. The open fire in the Lounge is always a welcoming winter warmer!

Or why not pamper yourself at Oxley’s, our partner health spa which is just a five minute drive from Portinscale? With state of the art facilities including an indoor pool, gym, spa and sauna it is the perfect place to unwind after a day exploring the great outdoors.
