    • “Beyond excellent!”

    • “We had an amazing stay at this lovely cottage, it has beautiful gardens which our children loved especially the hiding holes. It was easy to get out and about from here although with such idyllic surroundings it took some persuading to leave! We went with our three year old and 8 month old and found the cottage to be well equipped, clean and practical. It would be suitable for all ages. The owners are lovely and friendly and made us feel at home. I think we shall definitely return. A huge thank you to Geoff and Jane........ We will be back!”

    • “On the practical side this accommodation gets top marks - well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed, cosy living area and lots of hot water. Friendly owners, idyllic setting, lovely garden to sit and relax in. 2 mins down the road to get phone signal, 20 minute walk to local pub and village shop. I was there for 4 days and found good walks from Cottage every day. Nothing negative to say. Loved every minute of my short break.”

    • “A very warm and friendly welcome was provided by the owners who live on the farm joining this cottage. The cottage was clean and cosy with a modern kitchen. Lots of useful equipment and games for the children. The location is very quiet but, with a car, is in easy striking distance of all the main attractions.”

    • “Brilliant”

    • “Just returned from a 3 night stay at Gardeners Cottage. There was 2 adults, 3 kids (3 to 11) and the dog. It's a pleasant quaint cottage attached to the owners home which is a working farm. It was very quiet, and benefited from no phone signal or Wi-Fi. We found everything we wanted in the kitchen. The accommodation was comfortable and cosy. There was a very large garden to the front which was enjoyed by all. We booked last minute direct with the owner, as it if it was done through Cottage Holidays it wouldn't have happened, and been more expensive to boot! The owners were very friendly and accommodating.”

    • “The cottage was warm, comfortable and very clean. It has character features expected and has a well equipped kitchen. I was met on arrival and shown around the premises, being informed if there were any problems that the owners are just around the corner. I found them to be a lovely, friendly couple. Magazines and tourist information, including a large map of the area were set out inside which I found very helpful. The garden was quite large, but contained and my little dog loved exploring here. A little way down the road is Hesket Newmarket where 'The Crown' pub is situated. Some good everyday food here and they make their own beers in their brewery to the back of the premises. The Post Office and little store is a couple of doors up. The next village along is Caldbeck with a petrol station and a larger store, although still small. Certain small pieces of meat can be bought here. The cottage was easy to find with the directions given to me when booking. The only downside was the road going to and from it is single lane, but this can be expected in this area and being on a farm.”

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.
