About the hotel
Welcome to Dalegarth House in the stunning Lake District village of Portinscale near the popular market town of Keswick. The house has ten comfortable ensuite bedrooms and, due to the commanding position of the guesthouse, many have tremendous views of the surrounding Lakeland countryside. Dalegarth has an excellent reputation not only for its rooms and views but also for the food and quality of service.
The restaurant serves locally sourced foods and Cumbrian ingredients and the chef (and owner) Clare Dalton puts care an attention into each meal whether it be a Cumbrian Breakfast to set you up for the day or an enjoyable evening meal. Dinner is served at 7pm. If you would like to dine with us on your first night then you must pre-book this meal no later than 10 am on the day of your arrival. If you have already booked an evening meal with us for your first day and you anticipate your arrival to be after 4pm, then please phone ahead to enable the meal of your choice to be prepared. Portinscale village is one mile from Keswick and the town can be reached via a flat walk which avoids the roads and therefore is safe. The village is close to lake Derwentwater where there are lakeside walks and water based activities (sailing, windsurfing, rowing etc). Craig and Clare welcome couples, families and single visitors and Dalegarth House has rooms to suit most customers - singles, twins, doubles and ground floor annex (with steps). Unfortunately we do not accept children under twelve years of age or pets. Please note, for the comfort of other guests, our latest check in time is 9pm. A late check in fee of £50. 00 will apply for any check in after 21:00 hrs. Absolutely NO check ins after 22. 00 hrs.

Great location and great hosts
This was a lovely little hotel in a great location to explore the Lake District.
The hosts were extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and keen to make you welcome and comfortable. They were able to give loads of info on things to do close-by and just general local info that you're unlikely to get in a larger chain hotel. The room was comfortable and very clean, with everything you'd expect or need.
The breakfasts we had were as hearty as you need for a long day outdoors and very tasty. There was plenty of choice and quick service, though the limited serving times (8:15-9am) might not suit all.
The location itself is great, you're right in the heart of proper Lakes country, surrounded by fells and lakes and you can get right into it, or take a bus/drive a short way to different but no less stunning terrain.
Overall we had a very comfortable stay that we hope to repeat soon enough. A couple of days is not enough time to properly explore the area.
A great place to stay, Craig and Clare are really friendly and welcoming and the whole place has a friendly atmosphere.
The food is delicious too!
