Tea and freshly baked cakes provided on arrival was just one of many nice touches during our stay. Rooms were immaculate (just as the whole house and gardens were)....

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.

Craig and Claire were extremely welcoming. I was welcomed with a pot of tea and a flapjack when I arrived, which was lovely. Their local knowledge and suggestions for where to visit was really helpful, and allowed me to visit locations that I wouldn't have known about if it were not for them. It is always great to speak to...

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
