    • “Just stayed at Carrock Lodge in the Paddigill Lodges for two days with my son, his wife and our beautiful granddaughter who are there for the week. They are repeat visitors and I can see why. The Lodge is everything you could ask for, very well equipped, clean and modern, in the most beautiful and remote Lakeland location and run by people who care about detail and look after their customers. We enjoyed it so much that we will be looking to book this Lodge for sometime next Spring. The facilities are superb and everything is top quality with a luxury feel. Really fantastic value for money too, especially for the Lake District.”

    • “Loved it”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We arrived after a seven hour journey from Somerset to a warm welcome from Alison and the wood burner burning warmly. The lodge has everything you could wish for and more. It's comfortable and warm and cosy with surely the best views in the area. We quickly got attached to the numerous lambs outside which were great entertainment in themselves. We walked down into the village chatting to locals on our way. It's perfectly situated within easy reach of Keswick and more and it was lovely to get back after a busy day to relax in the peace and quiet of this tranquil haven. We will miss it all. We look forward to returning next year. We're spoilt for anywhere else now.”

    • “Fabulous holiday lodge full of beautiful items and equipment. I am a picky person and cannot think of one thing that was not delightful here. Alison & Gordon were friendly, welcoming and 'on hand' had we needed them. But left us alone to enjoy our adoptive home for the week - in fact were perfect hosts. We found the lodge so interesting, from the decorating, decorative touches, photographs, books, films. magazine and even a beautiful fireside blanket for times cuddling on the sofa as the wood burner burned down. The kitchen was equipped with the best quality utensils from copper bottomed pans to Denby crockery - such a treat. The lodges look out onto the open views -not overlooked at all. So getting up in the morning we were excited to see what the weather had done to our amazing view over night. We and our dog loved Scamp too! She is like a little, quick, black sheep with flying paws and a bright and friendly personality. We shall remember our week with affection and will be back we are sure! P.S. The farm is within The Lake District National Park - this wasn't crystal clear from the marketing.”

    • “Peaceful comfortable well equipped lodge in stunning scenery”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We received a lovely warm welcome on arrival from the owners (and Scamp the dog) who were friendly and helpful. It was important to us that pets were welcome too. The lodge is really comfortable and well equipped and spotlessly clean. It was really nice having towels included too and the welcome pack was a lovely touch. The view from the lodge is beautiful, overlooking the fells and the location is quiet and peaceful. Perfect for a relaxing break. The location is ideal for visiting northern lakes attractions and southern Scotland. We would certainly like to return. The only comment I would make which is not glowing is that there are a number of steps leading up to the lodge which may not suit everyone.”

    • “We stopped for a week the beginning of September 2015, had a great stay. The lodge we stayed in was brilliant, modern, clean with all you need at hand. The views out over the valley were fantastic. We took our Boxer dog, who made friends with their dog. It's 5 minutes drive to caldbeck and about 30 minutes from Keswick. The couple who run the farm were really helpful and friendly. We had a fantastic stay, would go again and recommend.”

    • “We stayed at carrock for 4 nights with out cocker spaniel. Alison who owns the farm was lovely. So friendly and helpful. As was scamp her dog, our dog took to her so she was always about. The inside of the lodge was beautiful, all done to a very high spec, everything you needed. Really amazing place the rainfall walk in shower was my husbands favourite. Mine was the beautiful wood burner. The view was stunning look up at high pike, it was isomer hint you wouldn't tire of seeing. I would give the lodge 10/10 The owners 10/10 Views 10/10 Thee wasn't anything I could say against it. Will be going back soon.”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Extremely high quality lodge with wonderful views down valley & over nearby hills. In quiet location on farm with just the 2 lodges and farm house near-by so ideal break away from any hustle & bustle. Only the sheep/lambs and cows to 'disturb the peace'. Alison and Gordon were very friendly and welcoming, but not as friendly as Scamp their dog!! She loves any attention you give her. As its right at the north of the Lake District its away from the normal crowds & hotspots so is ideal for exploring the quieter areas but still close enough to access the busier areas too. Caldbeck village is a bit of a walk away - downhill going but quite a steep hill back - but there is a bit of a shortcut through the fields that makes a nice walk.”

    • “Carrock Lodge is in a beautiful location with breathtaking views across the fells. The lodge had everything you need and was toasty warm with or without the log burner on. We will definitely be back. A perfect place to relax and unwind.”

    Mrs Raine, Stockton-on-Tees, January 2018

    • “Just spent a week at Carrock Lodge and loved it. The lodge is beautiful and kitted out to the very highest standard. It has wonderful views over the hills and is a tranquil get away for anyone who loves to be away from the crowds. Alison and Gordon were both charming and very helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. It snowed heavily while we there and the wood burner really came into its own, keeping the whole place wonderfully warm and snug! I have been using holiday homes such as this for 30+ years and this ranks as one of the best I have ever stayed in. The beds were wonderfully comfortable, and the linen beautiful. I cannot find fault with the place. I would recommend to anyone and will defiantly be making a return visit.”

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.
