I booked a room at the Dalegarth house B&B for my girlfriend's birthday (in April which was a while ago). We had wanted to get away to the Lakes for ages and Keswick/Portinscale is perfect. Contrary to what I'd been told, there is a fair amount to do in Keswick, including pubs, walks, a market and other things too. One thing it was quite limited on was places to eat - don't get me wrong, there are plenty of them, but other than pubs and cafes it is a small town so not many decent restaurants.
The B&B is great, very clean, big enough that you feel like you are on your own and not living under the owners' feet or other guests. The room was lovely, very clean, lots of room and storage and had a great view out the window of the hills. Claire and Craig are great hosts, they greet you with tea/coffee and cakes on arrival and they stay and chat with you for a bit, but not to the point where it's too much - I think they very much know how to make guests feel comfortable quickly.
I would definitely recommend this B&B and also stay there again. I wouldn't even bother looking what else there is in the area because this is perfect and I'd rather give the business to Craig and Claire.
