The minute you step into this house you know something wonderful is about to happen. We felt so cared for by Claire and Craig which is obvious the way the grounds, your room, service and food are presented. We were especially impressed that Craig was ALWAYS mindful to share his thoughts of places you might be interested. He did this... More

Dalegarth House is a very good place to stay. Have just returned from 3 nights there and the service, friendliness and help is the best I've come across. Pretty quaint and definitely a hit with older visitors. Excellent food and nothing is too much trouble.

A great place to stay. The flapjack and coffee made up for warm welcome on a cold day. A good breakfast. We would have preferred a larger room but the type of rooms were not very clear when we booked. Craig is great at PR . We enjoyed our stay thoroughly. A lovely location too. We enjoyed Craig's recommendation of... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and were made to feel very welcome. Craig and Claire are genuinely lovely, warm people who run a gorgeous guest house. Breakfast was fantastic and the homemade flapjack was the best I've ever tasted. A wonderful place to stay

Picked from Keswick guide and checked out on the Internet. We were unsure how well this would suit our very exacting demands but we're delighted to find that this was just what we expect from accommodation. Safe and plentiful private parking. A well furnished and comfortable room. Roomy and attractive en suite. Excellent food both at breakfast and evening meal.... More

We stayed here as it was a convenient location whilst in the Lakes for a wedding. The hotel is beautiful, Craig and Claire are very kind and friendly, going out of their way to help us, and the food was fantastic.

We found Dalegarth House about 18 months ago after looking for a smallish hotel in Portinscale. We've just ended our third visit and as per the previous two, Craig and Clare have been excellent hosts, providing superb home-cooked food, ultra clean rooms and plenty of local knowledge. We have booked another visit for September and are already counting off the... More

We have just spent another excellent week here. We have been coming to Dalegarth House for many years - we are now onto the 3rd set of owners ! The food is excellent, with a good wine list. I am diabetic and nothing is too much trouble for Clare, the Chef/Proprietor. She produced some very imaginative diabetic options for me.... More

We had decided to celebrate our first wedding anniversary by visiting the Lakes for the weekend. After scouring the web for inspiration and cross-checking against TripAdvisor reviews I booked Dalegarth House, largely because it was priced reasonably, had good reviews and was close to Keswick - somewhere we hadn't been before. From the moment we arrived to the moment we... More

A really nice guest house and the hosts Craig and Clare were amazing - so hospitable. Any questions you had about the local area they were more than willing to help with. We asked for a packed lunch on one of the days and it was no trouble for them - good value for money and was very tasty. Location... More
