  • "All round excellent."

    A very cosy, clean and well maintained cottage in a beautiful and peaceful location. The owners, Tim and Andrea, could not have been more helpful - and the welcome pack of the essentials was great to have. The location is excellent with one of the best short walks that I've been on starting 50 yards from the front door and stunning panoramic views just a 3 minute drive. Easy access to the sea, the Lakes and Carlisle.

    This latest booking is no exception. The accommodation was first class, clean, tidy and cosy. Our hosts Tim and Andrea couldn't have been more helpful and the whole week was so relaxing. We would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone wanting a 'get away from it all' holiday. Thank you. Nick and Debbie.

    The apartment is very clean and modern with everything you need to feel at home. Andrea and Tim do a fantastic job of making you feel welcome and ensuring your stay is comfortable. The local village is a short walk away and many of The Lake District’s top attractions are easily accessible when using the car. It’s a truly lovely location, very peaceful, beautiful views and great value for money. We’d definitely stay again.

  • "Location - great Hosts - great Local pub food - great (the steak pie was absolutely superb!"

    ) Within easy reach of all the natural beauty of the area, and lungs full of fresh clean air, I'd recommend Swaledale to anyone for a short break or longer stay - we were there only for two days but the accommodation was comfortable, clean, and well equipped so longer stays would be no problem. We'll likely be back in the area next year and will be hoping availability suits us!

    Immaculately clean and very comfortable, we loved the views over the fells from both the lounge and bedroom windows and enjoyed watching the cows and sheep graze. The owners were very welcoming and gave us helpful information about the area. We especially loved the walk along the beck right from the door, with a delicious lunch at the other end. The surrounding area was very lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed our visits to Keswick (Derwentwater) and Ullswater.

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.
