Words are short to describe the warm hospitality extended by Shaheed n his fly during our stay with family. Homely food, great location few mins away from lake with a nice backdrop of pine trees. Indoor n outdoor games are there to keep the children busy. Would suggest this hotel for stay with family for sure.

As usual as a part of my early planning, got into the habit of looking for a homestay and got in touch with Dalethorpe along with other resorts. I got to admit it was Shaheed from Dalethorpe who...

We stayed during the last week of March. I had my parents with me and was initially bit concerned before the travel, due to their age. However, all my worries were put to rest and they had a wonderful time at Dalethorpe. The rooms are clean, food is ok and location is not far from the lake (1.5 km walking)....

What can I say!!!! We got upgraded to the cottage since there was a large group coming into the main bungalow. 5/5 for hospitality!! The cottage is a large room with full length windows, a fireplace, large-screen LCD all inside a stone cottage. There is a small lawn outside with a log table set for a relaxing breakfast or lunch....

My husband and I spent three nights at DaleThorpe in February 2014. It's a lovely old property with a nice lawn that's far enough away from the main town to be peaceful, but not so far that it's terribly inconvenient. Pros: The property itself is lovely. The manor house is 90 year old, and the independent cottage is 100 years...
