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.

We extended our stay at this wonderful find which was truly home from home. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The food was amazing, very tasty and well presented. Craig was very helpful indeed with his local knowledge helping us plan our days and walks. His garden looks great too. We will definitely return.

Thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at Dalegarth House. Starting with a lovely greeting from hosts Clare & Craig with a welcoming pot of tea, to the good location for exploring the Lakes and the great food - highly recommend taking the dinner option! We met 2 other couples who are regulars who stay at Dalegarth House at least twice... More

I booked in here via the web at the last minute as I fancied a weekend away in the Lake District. I wasn't expecting too much at this price and such short notice but Dalegarth House is a superb place to stay. I'd booked a single room, but as there was a double room free so the hosts put me... More
