  • "Lovely comfortable cottage in glorious countryside."

    Great to be able to take our dog on his first holiday . Everything we needed for a short Lakes break. Very friendly hosts. Might be worth adding that this is not a location for anyone who needs guaranteed connectivity.

  • "The property is not where it is located on the Sykes web site."

    It is about half a mile away, Luckily not too much of a problem as we could still walk to our friends house near by. The owner was lovely and the cottage was perfect for the two of us. But not sure I would Sykes again.

  • "A lovely cosy cottage on a working farm surrounded by beautiful countryside."

    Very well equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay for a few days. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and left us some lovely biscuits and supplies of tea & coffee. We would definitely stay at Gardeners Cottage again.

  • "Friendly and helpful owners."

    Great value Exceptionally well prepared holiday let in a great peaceful location. Would certainly recommend this property to anyone looking for an ideal base from which to explore the Lakes but who don't want to be in amongst the overly commercialised areas.

  • "Really nice cottage and very nice people, felt peaceful and was quiet."

    An ideal place to stay. I wrote a message in the guest book that was incorrect. I wrongly thought that the owner had turned off the electricity before we left to remind us to leave on time. I later learned that was a power-cut and had a...Doh moment. I can only apologise to the owner.

    This cottage is set in beautiful surroundings on a well kept farm, and we were made to feel very welcome by the owners who are busy farmers, very quiet location which was perfect after visiting all the local attractions

    Great garden with scenic views to relax in on an evening. Ideally placed in North Cumbria to explore the Lakes and coast. Overall a very satisfying stay.

    All of the facilities were great and the location was ideal for everywhere we wanted to visit. I would most certainly and already have recommended you to friends and family. We would be very happy to return at some point.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Gardeners Cottage in such beautiful surroundings."

    The cottage itself is small but very clean and well equipped. The Garden area is idea for relaxing or playing with small children or a dog .As long as you are aware that the bedrooms and en-suite are small you will have a perfect holiday . It certainly didn’t spoil our stay.

  • "The ad says 2 bathrooms, but there is only the en suite which is tiny."

    The en suite is so small you can hardly dry yourself after a shower. The shower was extremely slippery and there is nothing to grab if you slip. The bed was up against the wall so the person sleeping on that side of the bed could only get out by climbing over the other person. The bed could not be pulled away from the wall as there was not enough room. Anyone else staying in the cottage needing the bathroom during the night has to enter the bedroom to use the en suite. AS THERE IS ONLY ONE BATHROOM NOT TWO. The garden is shared with owner and it is immaculate. Pesonally we were nervous to let out dog into the garden in case he damage the plants when chasing the ball. Also, and this is purely a personal opinion, it is not secure garden. My dog is only small but he can jump and would have easily been able to jump the wall to get in the next field, which contained sheep. There is a road that boarders the end of the cottage garden and the fence would be easy for any small dog to get through. Very often the garden gate to the garden was left open. This lead into the open farm yard on out onto the road. The cottage was clean, warm and contained everything you needed, the owner was pleasant and extremely helpful. However, I am sorry to say, due to the size of the bathroom and the unsecure garden I would not come back.

    The property has only one en suite shower room . There is no mention of two bathrooms on the website just the one. Property Owner

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.
