Great half-day visiting Dalemain Gradens and walking the approx.. 2 1/2 mile return walk to the village of Dacre. The Gardens were very interesting, consisting of many small, but differently themed plots. Spotted red squirrels in the woods.

We followed a signpost for Dalemain Mansion from the A66 on our way home from Cumbria to Yorkshire, having no idea what we would find when we arrived. It was definitely worth being curious as we found a country mansion, the oldest part of which dates from the 12th century in the shape of a Norman Pele Tower, and which... More

Dalemain House, Gardens and tearoom / Shop are well worth a visit. A very good half day visit to the House and Gardens. The old medieval hall has been used as the tea room. Good food and a great selection of Marmalades from their annual Marmalade festival.

Arrived here for a motoring event and was pleasantly surprised by the tearoom. Decent brew and cake at a reasonable price. Seating a little cramped.

I was passing this place in December and called in to try the tea room. I say a farmer who very kindly explained about the deer and was able to let me photograph them. I paid three pounds to access the gardens which were deserted but still really interesting despite it being December. I would have liked access to the... More

Enjoyed our visit here. I didn't know much about the architecture so was surprised, having entered a Georgian exterior with its formal ground floor rooms, to go upstairs into a tudor room. The gardens were lovely too, though all in all, it was a short visit.

Old house with fascinating history, some lovely gardens, formal and informal - children would love 'finding the 'giant', and an excellent tea room and shop. Very friendly and helpful staff. A bit run-down in some aspects, but there again it is an old house. Some of the exhibits could be better explained, displayed and labelled but we have a very... More

It is a lovely house and the grounds are pretty but its not as beautiful as many other similar houses, it was just a bit average to be honest. The staff were very friendly and the tea room is very nice, good quality. Its nice to visit as long as you don't expect too much
