Me and my partner visited DGHouse for 2 nights, it was perfect for what we needed. On arrival we were greeted by a friendly handshake off Claire and Craig and taken through to the lounge/bar are for a hot drink and cake, which was welcomed after our journey. Claire and Craig were very helpful in explaining the area and things... More

My husband and I stayed here at the end of October, 2015 and while the weather did not co-operate and it was dreary and rainy so we could not take any of the lovely walks that the region offers, we had a great time just staying at this lovely house! The room, I think it was #10, at the end... More

Can't really fault this hotel; the couple who run it couldn't have been friendlier or happier to help, and made some great recommendations for things to do. Very good location near Keswick, which is a 20 minute easy walk, and it was well worth doing the return walk after dark on a clear night; the view of the stars was... More

What a great B&B, Craig and Claire certainly know how to make you feel welcome! Both are very helpful and Craig is a fountain of knowledge on local walks and good places to eat and drink. The location is ideal if you like to be away from the more crowded Keswick, which is only a delightful 10 minute walk away.... More

I knew this B&B looked good when I booked it but I was wrong...it was great! I was a bit mixed up about the location thinking it was in Keswick itself. It's in a little hamlet named Portinscale whose name I couldn't remember for the life of me so I renamed it Parsnips. Probably the result of so much Beatrix... More

This was the perfect place to stay for our weekend in the Lake district. It is a lovely guest house run by Craig and Claire and they do an exceptional job. We had such a lovely welcome, with home made flapjack & a cup of tea on our arrival :) They gave very useful local information, where to go out... More
