We have tried to include all those little things that we wish for in a holiday house, so that you don't have to worry about the details. So you will find free WiFi, all the kitchen utensils you need, beds made up with quality bedding, plenty of towels for everyone, hair dryer, some interesting books to read and decent DVDs to watch (not just the freebies out of the Sunday paper...), toys and books for the children, enough loo roll, soap, cooking oil, firewood, BBQ fuel, etc... and no extra charges for anything.

Having notched up nearly 10 years of running B&Bs in the Lake District, we are very switched on to the requirements of visitors and have put a lot of effort into getting it right. Our previous guesthouse, the Waterwheel, was given a four star rating plus a Silver award that reflects exceptional quality. The current owners have maintained this superb rating and you can see for yourself by clicking on their link below. We aim for the same high standards at Dalefield House.

Spot the deer in the garden
Deer are a common sight on the lawn - the garden and our field are partially surrounded by woods and the deer make their wobbling white-bottomed way from Stockghyll woods or the slopes of Wansfell into the garden.
