Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
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.

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.

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

What can I say....this place is virtually my shangri la; ( sorry Penderff).
Everything was nearly perfect.
The village....perfect......almost......cafe 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.

"Lovely cottage and great value"
We stayed in Beckside Cottage for 4 nights and had a great time. The cottage is beautifully decorated and well equipped, and was great value for the money. Nicky was very friendly and helpful. Caldwell village itself is charming and very quiet. Overall a very enjoyable few days!

"Cosy cottage in quiet location"
We were welcomed by the very friendly Nicky, who took time to explain everything to us. The cottage was just as we had hoped - comfortable, very cosy with the wood burning stove roaring in the living room. The village of Caldbeck offers everything for a short stay - frindly pub, PO, local store, cafe and craft shops, all of which are fairtrade. There are pleasant walks from the doorstep and the big climbs of the northern lakes only a short ride away.
Very many thanks for taking the time to give a review which gives a lovely summary of Beckside and Caldbeck.
