The only reason I've rated Dale Head poor rather than terrible is that the owner and his wife were friendly and genuinely wanted to fix the problems we experienced. We stayed in the Coach House self catering unit which was functional. However a couple of days in we noticed a pool of water kept appearing under the sink, on further... More

Just got back from a two night stay at Dale Head Hall and wish we could have stayed longer. A beautiful location with magnificant views over Thirlmere Lake. Dale Head is tucked well away from the road side offering peace and tranquility yet still central to what the lakes have to offer. The hosts could not do enough for us... More

Just got back from a two night stay in room 10, lovely spacious family room with outstanding views over the front lawns and lake Thirlmere. Our 4 year old son was made to feel extremely welcome by the owners' granddaughter and a beautiful friendship ensued! The breakfasts were lovely and kept us going well into the afternoon. The lake is... More

This report relates only to The Coach House, one of the "Thirlmere Cottages" at the rear of Dale Head Hall Hotel. My wife and I stayed for a week during the very warm week starting at the end of June. We booked on the strength of reading their website and the claim that "The Coach House offers some of the...

Just got back from a week in the Coach House, self catering cottage in the grounds of the hotel. The hotel and cottages are a located just off the main road and making our way up the driveway we had no idea what a fantastic view there would be when we got there. Our first trip to the Lakes with... More

A lovely setting right next to Lake Thirlmere, approximately 20 mons for Keswick town. The hotel itself is a little dated and appeared to be run by the same 3 people (at least i only saw 3 people). The hosts could not have been more accommodating. I ordered a bottle of champagne for the room on arrival and a birthday... More

We stayed in the Armboth Cottage for a week for which we paid £700 plus and an extra £25 for a small dog. The cottage was clean, warm and comfortable but the decor was very drab (dark purple/dark red). It was sparsely equipped with no luxuries and no laundry facilities. We expected a view of the lake with a place... More

If you're looking for somewhere comfortable and quiet to stay; this would be the place. Located between Grasmere and Keswick just off the A591, it is convenient for most North Lake District attractions, but could be so easily overlooked. This tranquil setting provides comfortable accommodation, with a good breakfast. Staff are helpful and attentive, with time to talk, if you... More
