    • “Wonderful stay in a quiet corner of The Lakes”

    • “Just returned from an excellent week in Calva lodge with some friends and their dog. The accommodation is great -comfortable, modern and clean. Location is a farm tucked away in the north of the Lake District so if you’re looking for somewhere away from the busy tourist centres this is ideal. The small village of Caldbeck is is walkable or a short drive and has a pub and shop. Amongst other things we climbed Skiddaw and went mountain biking at Whinlatter forest park, both being relatively short drives away. Would definitely stay here again..”

    • “Lodge is fantastic, spotlessly clean and has a fab wood burner. We needed it - although the lodge with the central heating and heated floors in bathrooms was nice and warm anyway. The weather was fab as it snowed and we had great fun on the moors with our Golden Retriever Molly. Views are fab from the front of the lodge. We had a drive to Pooley Bridge to see the devastation caused by the floods and to support the local businesses. GO - Granny Dowbekins! Yea we love this place so does Molly i.e. Doggy bags! Will be back in Aug for a slightly warmer stay - i.e. outside! It you're debating about staying, don't! Just book it - you will love it!”

    • “Excellent Christmas break”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We stayed over Christmas and it is exactly what we wanted, away from busy life and in a secluded luxury lodge. The owners were very pleasant and helpful, the lodge was very clean, high spec and very luxurious. We loved the log burner (log supplied) and it heated the lodge very nicely. The surrounding area is beautiful and the view out of the living space was amazing. Locals in the village were very friendly but due to Christmas everything was shut so it would have been near impossible to get anything if you needed it. We would definitely return! Tip : farm is hard to locate, even with the help of the sat nav, look out for a large stone with the name of the farm faintly written in white”

    • “We stayed in October as couples with our 2 dogs and couldn't have picked a better place. Great location, the lodges are beautifully designed and the hosts of the farm were so helpful and kind leaving us little local gifts on arrival. If your looking for a quiet escape with stunning views, walks on your door step and a luxurious place to crash at the end of a hard days walking-this is the place. No negatives to this little gem!”

    • “What a wonderful week Steph and I have just spent at Calva Lodge. We were warmly greeted on arrival by Alison and the delightful Patterdale terrier Scamp! Scamp would visit every morning and evening and was so lovely and friendly, we fell in love with her right away! The lodge was amazing. Well appointed, clean and thoughtfully decorated and equipped with all that we needed. The water was always hot, the shower was good, very comfortable bed and the log burner made the lounge so cosy. The farm is in a beautiful part of the Lake District with great views, about 20 - 25 minutes from Keswick, and was very peaceful. Caldbeck was about 5 minutes by car and had a store, pub and several lovely craft shops. We had a really lovely week walking in the Lakes and loved our stay at Calva Lodge.”

    • “Perfect place to relax and unwind”

    • “My husband and I enjoyed a short break in this cosy well-appointed luxury lodge, which enjoys a delightfully rural and tranquil location on the edge of a small working sheep and beef farm. The lodge is bright, airy and contemproarily-styled - with lovely homely touches. Fluffy towels, comfy beds, endless hot water and excellent showers (and a bath for soaking tired limbs in after a long days walking), and a well-appointed kitchen. Cosy and warm when the Lake-District throws its grey and wet at you, but summery and al fresco on warm days and nights, with a very romantic outdoor seating/eating/BBQ area with views over the fields to the mountains. All within a short drive are mountains, Keswick and Carlisle, the Solway coast, and of course roman history at Hadrians Wall. Highly recommended.”

    • “We have just returned from a 5 day break at Calva Lodge. The owners Alison and Gordon were very friendly and helpful, even unpacking our shopping for us which arrived before we did. The lodge is clean and very well equipped with beautiful views across the farm and beyond. Lots of place to walk our dog who loved playing with the owners dog Scamp. My only problem is I have reduced mobility and found some areas quite steep but that is down to my poor research of the area and not a fault of the lodge or it's owners. Recommend.”

    • “Secluded retreat with a beautiful view”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Calva Lodge is a well presented and surprisingly spacious accommodation. The owners were attentive without being too present, and the lodge was very clean and well laid out. The owners also left some welcoming gifts for our arrival which went down very nicely. What were weren't expecting was the amazing view out towards Penrith. and the livestock which were also very entertaining. Calbeck is a beautiful village only a stroll away with a good village pub (The Oddfellows arms) and the walks nearby provided lovely views also. The only downside was the patchy Wifi, but then we wanted to get away from Civilisation anyway, was just a bit frustrating not being able to check the weather or make plans to days out around the lakes. Even so the accommodation was better than expected and provided great value for money.”

    • “We stayed for a week at the end of January in blustery, cold and wet weather. The lodge was very cosy and, thanks to large windows, never felt gloomy. It was a really nice place to stay with extremely good facilities and a nice sense of style. The bath and shower rooms were excellent, the bed very comfy and everything worked as it should. The owners alison and Gordon, could have not been more helpful or welcoming and brought a regular supply of logs for the wood-burning stove. Very nice people. The location was very good for us as we wanted to visit both Carlisle and the northern lakes and Paddigill Farm is about equidistant between them. The local villages are interesting and friendly, too. We'd happily return.”

    • “We were very impressed with the quality of this very cosy and comfortable lodge. We have just stayed for a Christmas break with our friends and our little dogs. The owners, Alison & Gordon were a lovely couple and very helpful with information about the area, and suggested some really good places to visit. The setting and views from this lodge are stunning, especially the sunrise! If it's not cloudy! There are some lovely walks , and one which we enjoyed was called Winslatter which is not far away. We would most definitely stay here again, although it was Christmas week and the weather was rather wild it didn't stop us getting around the area, it would be great to come back in the summer to enjoy it even more.”

The view of the surrounding fields and fells was breathtaking as well as being quiet and peaceful. This lodge offers something very special to anyone wanting to escape the noise and distractions of city life.”

Regional Information

CALDBECK Wigton 7.5 miles; Carlisle 12 miles; Keswick 16 miles; Cockermouth 17 miles. The charming Cumbrian village of Caldbeck is situated on the northern fringes of the Lake District National Park and is surrounded by beautiful moorland and fells. It’s a classic stone built village with a church, pub, village green and duck pond. The church dates back to the 12th century and is famous for being the resting place of the renowned huntsman John Peel. Although in every sense a ‘traditional working village’, the local craft centre at Priest Mill and the riverside walks to the Howk gorge, draw visitors to Caldbeck. The village is an ideal base for the northern Lakes, the market town of Keswick, as well as Lakes Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite. The natural beauty of the Solway coast, well-known for its golf courses and the town of Cockermouth, the birthplace of William Wordsworth are close by, whilst also within driving distance is the cathedral city of Carlisle, Hadrian’s Wall and the Scottish Borders.
