Lovely Cottage
This is a lovely cottage in a beautiful part of the lakes. The cottage is spacious and well equipped for a holiday. Everything you need is at the cottage and the garden was safe and secure for our dog. Handy little shop and an amazing very dog friendly pub. If you are thinking of visiting the lakes I would definitely recommend stay at Ellwood House.

Lovely property in a wonderful location
Ellwood House certainly did not disappoint. We had a wonderful weeks stay. The cottage is warm and welcoming and has all you need for a comfortable holiday. A lovely welcome basket of goodies and essentials including some milk from Midtown Milkhouse on arrival - a proper treat. You can cook up a storm in the well equipped kitchen and enjoy eating in, around the beautiful dining table. No dishes to wash as there is a dishwasher to take the strain! If eating out is more your thing, then the Oddfellows Arms in the village is less than 10 minutes on foot serving good food, and there are plenty of other locations to eat out at. We booked a table to eat in the train carriage at Bassenthwaite Lake Station. Just over 20 minutes by car and well worth it. We did plenty of walking as we were blessed with dry weather, some straight on foot from Ellwood House and others by taking a trip in the car first. We recommend the short car trip to Fellside to then walk towards to old disused mineworks. If you end up on the muddy side then don't worry as there is a washing machine back at the house to deal with that. Returning back to the cottage after a day out and about was so relaxing. Get the log burner lit, maybe a soak in the bath the ease the muscles, enjoy a glass of wine reading a book on the comfy sofas. There is good size TV and a selection of DVDs, but also great wifi, so we took our Firestick and streamed some things to watch. A very comfortable bed, good linen and a generous size bedroom meant seven nights of good sleeping. Plenty of wardrobe space for storage too. Great secure garden (an essential for us as we have a pooch) which would be lovely to sit out in during the summer and there is a large garden table and chairs and also a bbq for those people lucky enough to be holidaying in the warmer months. Lots of parking space in the properties own gated area at the rear. There is a shop in the village and well as the Milkhouse & the pub. The locals we met were very friendly and welcoming. The owners of the cottage were very helpful responding to our communications and we look forward to our next trip to Caldbeck & returning to Ellwood House, as we wouldn?t choose anywhere else to stay in when there is everything you need here and more.

Cosy cottage
Great cottage in lovely village on a quiet road. Five mins walk to well equipped local shop and the Oddfellows Arms a dog friendly pub serving good food. The cottage was nicely furnished and the beds comfortable. Skirting boards and kitchen cupboards could do with a wipe down but other than that the property was clean and looked recently refreshed. I would recommend this dog friendly property to friends and would book again. The owner Stuart responded promptly to emails and was pleasant to deal with. Caldbeck is off the tourist route so the area nice and quiet but is within easy reach of several towns.

Wonderful House in a Lovely Quiet Village
Our first stay here with our Black Lab Gracie. Such a lovely spacious but cosy Spotless house with all you need in a quiet village, great gated parking and secure back garden. Ideal base for touring the lakes, 13 Miles from Keswick, but not far from anywhere in the National Park. We went to Silloth on the coast too, which was so nice and green. Caldbeck Village is quiet and scenic with lovely walks on the Cumbrian Way, a Duck pond, nice Pub, cafe, well stocked shop and the Midtown Milkhouse, where you buy a bottle and fill it with milk yourself or make a Shake ! Wigton is nearest place for big shop, we went to Lidl (11 miles). Would definietly stay here again. Not much traffic goes past the cottage, so dont worry about the road outside, this is on a side street in the village past the School House, the occasional sheep passed by !! You get a lovely welcome pack on arrival too.

Excellent as ever
Returned to a cottage we love in gorgeous Caldbeck. Cosy, immaculate accommodation and everything you need to have a very comfortable stay, including a pretty garden to sit in and plenty of parking. A very short stroll into the village where you find a pub, local shop, great gift shop and coffee stops plus local walks. A perfect location to enjoy the northern lakes, fells and towns. We'll be back.
