Editor's Review

The best part of Dalethorpe Homestay is that it is located close to the town centre unlike many other homestays and cottages which are in a remote area. Although you cannot expect the best of the services, the atmosphere of the place makes the stay quite interesting.


  • Conveniently located close to the town centre, yet it is quite peaceful.
  • The chef prepares good home-cooked local dishes.
  • Nice large play area for kids.
  • Good atmosphere during dinner at the bonfire.


  • The view from most of the rooms is not that great.
  • You can't expect an extremely luxurious stay.
  • The home stay doesn't have a restaurant of its own.
  • The sightseeing tours are slightly overpriced.
