Rickerby Grange, in Portinscale, Keswick, is a great place from which to explore and to share our passion for the area, as well as a place to rest weary feet and relax. It’s a place that’s happy to provide a personal touch - a few maps, the odd book and a bit of local knowledge if needed. Built in 1926, Rickerby Grange, which has been welcoming travellers and holidaymakers through it’s doors for nearly 100 years, is just a short 15 minute flat walk to the relative hustle and bustle of Keswick. Our doubles provide a real sense of space and comfort. Rickerby Grange’s family rooms are the perfect choice for those with children and the guest house is happy to welcome dogs - free of charge - in selected rooms. There’s also free car parking for all guests, and from then on there’s no real need to get behind the wheel again, unless you want to venture further afield. We are just completing an almost total renovations of rooms and the guest dining room which we are sure will make Rickerby Grange even better and better value for all our guests.
Yours hosts Charlotte and Phil took over the 10 bedroom Guest House, which is the heart of the Lake District national park and England’s latest Unesco World Heritage site, in January 2018. Charlotte, who likes nothing better than putting on a pair of running shoes and venturing outdoors, has, like so many who visit, fallen in love with The Lakes following her first trip over 15 years ago. While Phil’s upbringing, in the north west of England and weekend trips to The Lake District from a young age, had already resulted in an unhealthy obsession with Ordnance Survey maps and the fell walking routes of Alfred Wainwright. Charlotte’s career in public relations and Phil’s in journalism mean they love people and they love a challenge. They take pleasure in making people happy as it brings a smile to their faces and a sense of satisfaction. Charlotte and Phil are committed to offering guests a stay that means they can truly enjoy the comfort, the location, the food, the people and touches of luxury, including scrumptious breakfasts, good coffee, a lie in, and a warm place to hang up a pair of muddy walking boots.
A public footpath which runs directly from Rickerby Grange will take you into some of the finest fell walking country in the land, including the iconic Catbells, Grisedale Pike, (often referred to as the ‘The Lakeland Matterhorn’) and Skiddaw, the peak that dominates the area. Guests can also easily reach the beautiful and serene Newlands Valley, the peaceful Derwent Water lake shore and the exhilarating Whinlatter Forest. There’s barely enough room on this page to mention all the nearby outdoor activities - fell walking, cycling, sailing on Derwent Water, kayaking, windsurfing, wild swimming, Via Ferrata, rock climbing, ghyll scrambling, canoeing, paddle boarding, orienteering, bushcraft, gliding, marathons, triathlons…….phew…….. we could go on. But it’s not just outdoor pursuits and natural beauty that make the Keswick area a must visit destination. The region is thriving with world class culture and thought provoking history. Discover one of the most impressive prehistoric monuments in Britain at Castlerigg Stone Circle, as well as Roman Forts and hill top streets. And just one hour away discover Hadrian’s Wall, another Unesco World Heritage Site.
