My husband and I spent the August 2013 bank holiday at Dalegarth House. Claire and Craig are fantastic hosts! The food cooked by Claire is outstanding, the variety at breakfast is exceptional, Claire cooks a great full English. We also took advantage of the evening dinner offered by Claire and were not disappointed.
Nothing is too much bother, even when we got them out of bed at 1am because we locked ourselves out!
Keswick town is great, some great pubs everyone is very friendly and lots of out door shops. Within 5 minutes of leaving Dalegarth House there are several beautiful walks for you to enjoy, Claire and Craig also have a folder of walks available. Craigs knowledge of the area is fantastic, he'll be able to point you in the direction of anywhere you wish to explore.
We will definitely be returning, perhaps as a group next time. Dalegarth House can be booked out for group trips.
A massive thank you again to Craig and Claire.
