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

We stayed at Dalegarth House from 20-22 March for our wedding anniversary and were made very welcome by Craig and Clare. We had a lovely room overlooking the lake. The breakfasts and the evening meals were excellent as was the complimentary homemade cakes. Thanks to Craig for printing walk maps, showing us photographs and being generally very helpful. We will... More

We badly needed a short break (four nights) in a good place in walking country. Dalegarth delivered - comfortable, excellent cooking using local produce, and good knowledge of the fells. Claire and Craig are working really hard to make everyone welcome in their very traditional Lake District hotel. We are looking forward to another visit.

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
