We arrived to no coat hangars, no kettle and very limited kitchen facilities. Seal on oven broken, one shelf. How many ovens arrive with only one shelf?? Hotel owners who manage all the self catering cottages helpful and apologetic, " we don't check the cupboards each time", why not?? But lovely situation with wonderful views over Thirlmere and cosy and... More

We stayed in the Leatheswater Cottage (next to the hotel) in Aug 2014 and had a thoroughly enjoyable week. The location is excellent right next to a hotel, very close to the banks of Thirlmere Lake (great views) and just 1/4 mile from a good pub and 5m south of Keswick. Apart from the Wi-Fi (which was really weedy) this... More

We stayed for a week in the self-catering Leatheswater apartment, booked through Cottages4you. We were looking for somewhere with a nice view, with a variety of walks from the door and that had an away-from-it-all feel while being close to a good access road. We were not disappointed. In addition the bed was comfortable and the water hot at all... More

Incredible location, wonderful atmosphere. Although the owners have changed, the place is still as magic as it used to be. The new owner is very kind and helpful, the rooms are splendid and the food delicious. And the view is fantastic as the hotel is the only one along a lake that is quite inaccessible (so, not touristy) but very... More

Stayed here for one night recently, lovely surprise when we were showed into the room - just like the descriptions online, excellent quality, beautiful views. We had a family room, not knowing what to expect I was surprised to have a four poster bed, with two single beds also, at the front of the house, and an amazing view over... More

The view from the room is breath taking.The entrance and hallway has period charm but a bit rundown and in need of refurbishment . Breakfast was good.The path down to the lake was overgrown with...

We booked a last minute easter holiday at Dale Head Hall, what a pleasant surprise after simply booking the only hotel with an available family room in the county. I love the lakes, but hate how busy it always is, this fantasticly located hotel stands in it's own grounds right by lake Thirlmere on the road between Ambleside and Keswick... More

My partner and I just couldn't face going home from the Lakes. So we searched the internet for a hotel that could provide us with a room there and then. I telephoned the family run Dale Head Hall, which overlooks Thrilmere just outside of Keswick and we were immediately offered a room at a discounted price. Even before we entered... More
