    “Lovely house,lovely setting.”


    Ellwood House is ideally situated just 5 mins from the centre of Caldbeck.Although on a road it's a minor road with little traffic other than the postman and the odd farm vehicle!It is spacious and well equipped.We found it had everything we needed for a relaxing and comfortable stay :) It is also very Dog friendly.The enclosed rear garden is perfect for dogs.We have a very clever Cocker Spaniel who failed to escape so I would say it's pretty secure!Beyond the garden is ample enclosed parking for a couple of cars.We had a LWB VW Van and had no problem turning it around in the parking area.There is also a LARGE garage to secure bikes/canoes or whatever outdoor equipment you may have.On the whole the house pretty much ticks all boxes for an active family holiday! Caldbeck is a nice little Cumbrian village that is not "touristy" like some others in the National Park.It has a very relaxing vibe about it.The local pub is both friendly and serves excellent quality food.Plenty of nice family friendly walking from the village and plenty of maps/guides in the house. We will definitely be back!!

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.
