Key Info

  • Pets welcome
  • Private garden

Beckside Cottage is over 200 years old and combines old rustic charm with modern facilities, It is a ideal for a romantic break, walking/cycling holidays or a family holiday including the dog. A great country pub serving local food and the village shop including post office are all within a few minutes walking distance. A traditional village duck pond and watch out for sheep in the street.

Caldbeck is one of the most beautiful and peaceful of all the Lakeland villages and is ideally situated for exploring the Lake District, the Scottish Borders, the Eden Valley and the North Pennines. The surrounding area has so much to offer everyone, steeped in history, dating back to the 13th century, it has seen many changes over the centuries. Industries have come and gone. Many of the village buildings were built in the 17th Century and are now housing New Shops and Local Services catering for visitors and locals alike.

The area is one of the more remote and lesser known parts of the Lake District, but boasts some outstanding scenery and some of the best, less frequented walking in the whole of the Lake District.

Superb walking and cycling exists within easy reach of all the villages in the Northern Fells, catering for all levels. You can travel for miles and not see a soul - enjoy the peace & quiet and listen to the birds singing. This really is a great place to spend some time.

The Cumbria way, C2C (Coast to Coast) and the Reivers Route also pass through the village.

"Perfect cottage in perfect location"

Ideal cottage - small but perfect. We stayed two nights whilst in Caldbeck visiting relatives. Beckside cottage has everything you need and the owner deserves 10/10 for her attention to detail. Nice w… More

"Fantastic cottage and location"

I would definitely recommend Beckside Cottage. The cottage was absolutely perfect, very cosy and clean. Fantastic kitchen has all necessary equipment. The location of the cottage is brilliant, fantastic walks right on the doorstep, we only left Caldbeck once during our stay. The walks around Cladbeck are outstanding.
The local pub Oddfellows was very welcoming the locals were all friendly. I would recommend the food and local beers at the pub. There is also a well equipped village shop, both which are a 2 minute walk from the cottage.
Nicky was great and showed us around the cottage, which was a lovely personal touch, she even had a biscuit for our dog Inka.
Definitely worth 5+ stars!

Many thanks for taking time to post a review, many potential guests read reviews and have booked as a result of what they have read.
Wishing you well,
Nicky, Ginger Cottages.

A perfect cottage, decorated and furnished to a high standard. The owner met us on our arrival and made sure that we knew where everything was and how everything worked. The owner brought us a complimentary bottle of milk and some logs for the woodburner both of which were much appreciated. Highly recommended and I intend on returning.

Very many thanks for taking the time to review our cottage, it makes all the hard work very worthwhile

"Beautiful stay!"

Myself and my husband stayed here for two nights. When we were arrived we were met by the very friendly Nicky how took time to explain all we needed to know and give us a quick tour around the cottage. The cottage was beautiful, modern facilities were fitted around the cottage such as the kitchen but the charm of the cottage still remained throughout with the beams, windows and of course the lovely wood burner. It felt like a home from home and we did not want to leave, the surrounding village was breathtaking - postcard worthy. Everything we needed was in the cottage - a lovely extra was the tea, coffee, biscuits and salt and pepper that Nicky provided, not to forget the beautiful fresh flowers around the cottage. Overall we loved our stay and are dying to return!

Thanks Nicky!

Many thanks, you have wrote a lovely encouraging review, will be lovely to see you back again

"Almost perfect...."

What can I say....this place is virtually my shangri la; ( sorry Penderff).
Everything was nearly perfect.
The villagers..fantastic.
The for early morning breakfast?
The cottage....almost perfect. Clean, tidy and very comfortable.
The only faults I can come up with are;fantastic kitchen but somewhat dark; LED lights please,( i like cooking) and lower the water temperature.
I really had to wrack my brains to come up with anything to fault this place.

Many thanks for your considered review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for pointing out that the water is very hot, I think I need to put it on a summer setting.
