    “Especially for Jane the owner, I did come round Saturday morning to return the keys and thank-you for a lovely stay.”

    I rang the bell twice but no answer - I was sorry not to be able to see you in person. The cottage is lovely and everything one needs is on hand. Janes garden is a delight and I was so lucky to enjoy it with Poppy in all weathers, especially the warm sunny days. The farm eggs are delicious and I was going to be cheeky and ask if I could purchase some to bring home!! There was a lovely welcome and yummy biscuits to enjoy with tea after a busy day walking.

    I rang the bell twice but no answer - I was sorry not to be able to see you in person. The cottage is lovely and everything one needs is on hand. Janes garden is a delight and I was so lucky to enjoy it with Poppy in all weathers, especially the warm sunny days. The farm eggs are delicious and I was going to be cheeky and ask if I could purchase some to bring home!! There was a lovely welcome and yummy biscuits to enjoy with tea after a busy day walking. Gardeners Cottage is a hidden gem in the Lakes, a superb place to just chill and unwind. I loved it all and am a little sad I may not be able to return. I wish Jane happy retirement and the same to her husband and dear little Matilda. Best wishes and many thanks from Nicki Rose & Poppy

About the location

CALDBECK

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.
