From their prompt replies to email requests before our visit to their greeting when we arrived to their attention to details, the owners of the Dalegarth, Craig and Clare, provided an outstanding guest house experience. At first, we were a little disappointed that the house was in Portinscale and not Keswick itself, but that turned out to be a good thing. We had easy access to nearby Keswick by both bus and ferry without the busyness of the town and the headaches of parking.
The house and gardens are wonderfully situated overlooking the lake in the little village of Portinscale, and are kept up beautifully. The guest rooms are up-to-date and immaculate. The living and dining areas are very comfortable, with great views. The food is excellent (breakfasts are included). I'd recommend the dinner option, which you can choose up to 10 am each day. The meal was wonderfully prepared and served, although the cost is a bit high.
Craig provided excellent advice for sightseeing in the area, and was very patient and attentive in providing brochures, directions, etc. It is no surprise that most of the other couples we met during our stay were repeat customers. If I had the chance to go back and stay at the Dalegarth House I would do so without hesitation and feel fortunate to get such great accommodations!
