Daytrippers delight with a cottage in Calvo
Perhaps daytrips are at the top of your Calvo cottage holiday agenda? If so, head south and enter the Lake District National Park, where stunning landscapes and enchanting villages beckon.

Or, head north and cross the border into bonnie Scotland! En-route from your Calvo holiday rental, you'll pass Gretna, famed for its ties to quick and easy marriages. Then it's onwards and upwards, passing castles, abbeys and fortresses that hark back to the Scottish Borders' grisly past.
