  • “Elwood house is warm and comfortable.”

    It is somewhat dated but as it is let out to families with pets I would not spend a fortune on updating it if it were mine. Main bed is comfortable but could be wider for two average size adults. The single bathroom did not cause us a problem as there was only the two of us but for a family of 6 I could see major problems so a second loo would be nice. The location is a little off the beaten track but is still fine for all of the lakes if you are happy to spend some time driving. Oddfellows Arms in the village is friendly and serves good food at a reasonable price.

The property

A delightful 18th-century stone cottage, nestled within an elevated position in the pretty village of Caldbeck.

This dwelling is perfect for friends and families looking to explore the area, as the property houses a spacious interior with a beautiful contemporary design to complement.

Upon entering the property, you are welcomed to a cosy sitting room, where you and your loved ones can snuggle during a winter’s evening in front of the warming woodburning stove and TV.

To the back of the space is a charming, formal dining area, complete with a seating arrangement for up to six guests.

Inside, you will also find a well-equipped kitchen, boasting all the necessities you will require during your stay.

Follow the stairs up to the three brightly decorated bedrooms, comprising a double bedroom and two twin bedrooms.

Completing the first floor is a well-appointed family bathroom, with a shower over bath, basin and WC.

Outside you can enjoy a summer’s day within the enclosed back garden, completed with table and chairs.

Within a 10-minute walk you will access the local pub and shop, situated within the village of Caldbeck.

To keep you busy, the area is renowned for its walks and from the cottage you will be able to walk the fells or find Gill Beck which runs through the village with a footpath just behind.

Further afield, is the market town of Keswick, where you can explore the many shops and restaurants, or take a boat trip around lake Derwentwater.

About the location


Wigton 7.5 miles; Carlisle 12 miles; Keswick 16 miles; Cockermouth 17 miles.

The charming Cumbrian village of Caldbeck is situated on the northern fringe 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.
