Further details indoors

Marlowe Cottage provides particularly versatile accommodation, suitable for families, couples and singles. A particular advantage is that there are two generous and well-appointed double bedrooms and two separate luxury bathrooms, allowing two couples to enjoy equal comfort and privacy.

On the ground floor, leading from the spacious reception hall (with cloakroom off) is the separate well-appointed kitchen and the large open plan living/dining room. Leading from this is an unusual single bedroom on two levels. Children just love it (so do adults!). Upstairs, are two large double bedrooms, separated by two bathrooms, one en suite

Further details outdoors

Large, secluded garden with generous patio (furniture and barbecue), off street parking for 2/3 cars.

The Cumbria/Lake District

Marlowe Cottage is situated in Caldbeck - a traditional fell village situated in the Northern Fells of the English Lake District. 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 including Skiddaw, Blencathra, High Pike and Carrock Fell.


The village is named after the river (Cald Beck) on which it stands. This river and its tributaries provided the water for the important industrial development of the area in the 17th and 18th centuries - woollen mills, bobbin mills, corn mills, a paper mill and a brewery. The village still reflects this former industrial activity with many of the old mill buildings still in use.
