  • "Exceptional cottage and location!"

    The cottage was cleaned thoroughly prior to our arrival and well equipped including kindling and logs for the woodburning stove and the best welcome package we have ever received. The owners are friendly, genuinely care that you enjoy your stay and nothing is too much trouble. The location of the cottage is superb, only a short drive to Keswick yet lovely and quiet with a fabulous local country pub. We will definitely return to Beckside Cottage and be recommending to our friends.

    A lovely welcome basket and wine left by the owners which was a lovely touch.Only one slight oversight-no charging/shaver point to charge my electric toothbrush.The Oddfellows Arms does good pub food but book ahead as it’s always busy,the cod loin special was excellent!

  • "Beckside was an idyllic cottage in an idyllic location."

    The village is a little gem with wonderful walks, fabulous streams for children to play in, a nice village pub and a lovely stream side cafe for waffles and milkshake. It’s such a relaxing place to stay and the owners Stephen and Heather have thought of everything! The little courtyard is a delight for alfresco breakfasts and taking in the surrounding countryside! Our 2 little boys adored it and we got to spend lots of lovely family time enjoying the simple things in life and getting back to nature. The boys loved the duck pond, streams, waffles and the rope swing on the walk to Hesket. There are such great days out too about 1/2 hour drive away the highlights for us were Mirehouse on Bassenthwaite and Dodd Wood, parking at Keswick Launch (nipping to see Castlerigg Stone circle on the way) and playing on the shores at Derwentwater and the waterfalls at Aira Force walking up Gowbarrow to see amazing views of Ullswater! Such an inspiring part of the country to visit. Thank you Stephen and Heather for your generosity and for helping us make amazing memories

  • "A lovely cottage in a lovely location with easy access to all we wanted to do."

    The cottage had everything we needed, and more, and was clean and exceptionally cosy to come back to after a day out. Lovely gifts waiting for us from the owners, Stephen and Heather, when we arrived, a really nice touch. Stephen and Heather were excellent hosts, making us feel very welcome and there if we needed anything. The whole experience was superb and we will definitely go back if holidaying in the area again.

  • "Beckside cottage was located perfectly for us, in such an idyllic little village called Caldbeck, and a great location for getting around the northern part of the Lake District."

    The cottage itself was so enchanting and charming, we absolutely loved its cosy feel, especially with the fire going at night. As hosts, Stephen and Heather were wonderful, leaving a lovely little collection of tasty treats for our arrival, plenty of wood for the fire, and on hand for any questions and advice. We would both thoroughly recommend this cottage to any couple or small family in a heartbeat!

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 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.
