Right in the centre of Caldbeck with the village pub across the road Gill Beck's stunning location beside the beck marks it out as something special. The cottage is warm and comfortable with double glazing and central heating throughout. Caldbeck village, the North Lakes best kept secret, is an oasis of peace and quiet, far removed from the bustle of the South Lakes tourist centres but within easy reach of Bassenthwaite, Keswick, Penrith, the Solway Coast and the north Lakeland fells.
The village has everything you might want, from the village pub The Oddfellows Arms, a well stocked village shop and Post Office. doctor's surgery, two cafes - even a hairdresser.

It snowed when we stayed at Gill Beck in late April, which made the cosy sitting room even more welcoming. Loads of room for just two of us. Lots of kitchen equipment. Very comfortable master bedroom with overlooking the beck. Caldbeck itself is (thankfully) quieter than the central Lake District honeypots, but still has a well-stocked village shop/PO, other crafty...
