Clare and Craig are just so welcoming and accommodating! They really could not be more friendly and helpful. Wonderful food at Breakfast and Dinner and excellent rooms! Teriffic view of the lake from our room. Book yourself in for dinner - you won't get better anywhere in the Lakes.

Spent 3 nights early November. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast and evening meal excellent. Position of house near Derwentwater is great for walking or driving further afield. Thanks to Clare and Craig for a friendly welcome and nice time.

We returned again to Dalegarth for 5 days dinner, bed and breakfast. It is as brilliant as ever. Clare and Graig do everything to make you feel welcome. Everywhere is spotlessly clean and the food, all prepared by Clare, is excellent. Will certainly be returning soon

We had a very nice stay at Dalegarth House. We had room 4 which is spacious and has lots of storage if your stay is longer. Unfortunately we were only there for 2 nights.
