Just stayed at Dalegarth for a couple of days what a great place to stay. Lovely property in a marvellous location and the sun shone as well! Clare and Craig are brilliant hosts have great local knowledge regarding routes,walks, and other useful information. The attention to detail from this very efficient hard working couple is to be admired, from a... 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.

Dalegarth is a wonderful place to stay...the accommodation is of the highest standard and the food and service are both absolutely excellent... We have been looking for years for a place of this standard that we can return to again and again and now we have! So far we have been twice this year and have another three day break... More

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...

Jus had 5 wonderful days in Dalegarth House. Comfortable ground floor room, very clean. Lovely views from the house and very close to Derwent Water. Craig and Claire are wonderful hosts, full of information and nothing is too much trouble. Claire's breakfasts are fantastic, different special every day. Cake always available for guests, just help yourself. Had lovely evening meal... More
