Welcome to Rickerby Grange


Rickerby Grange gardensThe family owned and run Rickerby Grange is a (mainly en-suite) country house, ideally located in a private lane in the pretty village of Portinscale.

At Rickerby Grange, a warm welcome is extended to all: single occupancy, couples and families... and including walkers and cyclists. By prior arrangement, even the family dog is welcome.


The village of Portinscale, itself, is on the north westerly tip of arguably, the Lake District’s most attractive lake, Derwentwater- overlooked by Skiddaw, Cat Bells and Causey Pike and yet within easy walking distance of the attractive town of Keswick and its many amenities. The village hosts a boat club and marina with wind-surfing and canoeing facilities and if seeking a meandering walk with glorious views, why not take Rickerby Grangethe bridge over the River Greta and the footpath in to Keswick.

From your Rickerby Grange base, there are numerous scenery ladened footpaths to explore with wonderful, more distant, opportunities beckoning the motorist – as well as invigorating, more exhausting options for our walking and cycling guests.

Rickerby Grange is open all year and ready to welcome your enquiry for that well deserved, ‘get away from it all’ holiday break.

We are less than two miles from the newly opened GoApe and Altura Mountain Bike Trail facilities in Whinlatter Forest.
