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. The room has wonderful views looking over the beautiful garden towards Derwentwater. Clare and Craig who run Dalegarth House are welcoming and friendly. Clare is an... More

From the time Craig opened the door and welcomed us to have tea and cake, nothing was too much trouble. We dined in on the second night and the food was great with a very good choice of wines. We had room 5 which was a little on the snug side but we had booked last minute and all the... More

Some friends and I have just spent a few nights at Dalegarth House and it was perfect. Clare and Craig are most welcoming. The rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable. The breakfasts and welcoming flapjacks were excellent and the two evening meals we had were superb. The garden is beautiful. A wonderful place to stay in the Western Lakes
