This was the first B&B trip that me and my wife have booked so was a bit nervous. Right from the moment that we saw the property and was met by Craig, we knew we had made the right choice. The property is absolutely superb, location is amazing, Craig & Clare outstanding hosts and really made it feel like a... More

At the end of a week in late July visiting friends in the north of England we wanted to spend a couple of days exploring around Keswick, an area we hadn't visited before. Anticipating how busy Keswick itself would be we opted for nearby Portinscale and found Dalegarth House online. One of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed in!... More

We have recently returned from this lovely guest house and could not fault it in any way. Craig and Clare are fantastic hosts who greeted us with home made cake and a pot of tea before being shown to our rooms. My daughter and I stayed in room 9 in the annex, and my parents were in room 10 next... More

I booked a room at the Dalegarth house B&B for my girlfriend's birthday (in April which was a while ago). We had wanted to get away to the Lakes for ages and Keswick/Portinscale is perfect. Contrary to what I'd been told, there is a fair amount to do in Keswick, including pubs, walks, a market and other things too. One... More

Its an impressive looking building with good parking. Owners were very friendly , and tea an cakes were an excellent way to greet us. Our room was big and again, quite impressive. Lots of little thoughtful touches throughout. We had a good nights sleep. Breakfast was again a quality affair, virtually anything you want, but the full English breakfast was... More

We chose this establishment, for a 5 night stay, based on the outstanding Tripadvisor reports and their own web site. The initial impression made by the award winning garden, the friendly informative welcome (with coffee and cake), plus the continuous provision of fresh milk, the dish of sweets in the room, and high quality toiletries (very strong toilet tissue) was...

Craig and Claire are wonderful hosts, full of information and nothing is too much trouble. Claire's breakfasts are fantastic, different special every day.

Craig and Claire have created a very special guest house at Dalegarth House. Located 15 minutes walk across the fields to Keswick in a small village by Derwent Water with pretty gardens, ample car parking spaces and a quiet location. The guest house is immaculately kept with large well lit rooms, a big lounge, and a bright breakfast room. The... More

From their prompt replies to email requests before our visit to their greeting when we arrived to their attention to details, the owners of the Dalegarth, Craig and Clare, provided an outstanding guest house experience. At first, we were a little disappointed that the house was in Portinscale and not Keswick itself, but that turned out to be a good... More

Spacious rooms, very clean and modern. Brilliant breakfast - wonderful location and views - Clare and Craig work hard to ensure their guests have everything they could possibly need and are the perfect hosts - we got tea and cake on arrival - just what we needed after a long journey. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay here.
