I we (couple and 2 dogs) stayed at Beckside cottage in June 2014 . We were greeted by Nicky when we arrived who was very helpful with all aspects of the cottage and gave suggestions for exploring the surrounding area.
The cottage is very comfortable and well maintained. The furnishings are of good quality especially the beds. We didn't get to use the log burner as weather was too warm!
The dogs were made to feel welcome with their own bowls and towel and biscuit on arrival!
The local pub is dog friendly which was a bonus when eating out in the evening.
Lovely trip was had by all and we will hopefully be back soon!

We were a family of 2 adults, 2 children (8 and 13) with dog and Nicky (the owner) met us on arrival and made us very welcome. She showed how everything worked from the woodburner (not used one before) through to using the halogen cooker and what to do in the local area. The house was extremely comfortable and cosy, everything was supplied, from towel for the dog up to pint of milk left in the fridge for a welcome cuppa! The standard of décor and fixtures and fittings were of a very high standard, especially the bedding which was very nice to fall asleep under after a busy day walking and exploring. The shower and bathroom in general, was very good too. Also available were a selection of books and games which was very thoughtful too.
A thoroughly enjoyable stay and would definitely return.

We loved staying here, due to an odd arrival time Nicky couldn't meet us but had left the keys in the easy to find village shop, along with some milk for a brew when we finally arrived!
The cottage is beautifully furnished, very cosy and comfortable, with modern kitchen and bathroom, while the rest of the living space is very country cottage - this is topped off by the excellent wood burner!
There isn't a shortage of things to do in the lake district. But Caldbeck is a little off the beaten track, I found this added to the charm, not being surrounded by the masses
We only stayed for a couple of nights, but when we arrived we where greeted by the owner who showed us around and made us feel very welcomed, she showed us everything we needed to know and then left us to get on with it ourselves!
Both of the bedrooms where beautiful, with the main room being well furnished, the bed was extremely comfy, and the sheets were very soft.
The kitchen and bathroom are very modern however this works perfectly with the house. The kitchen is very well equipped with good quality pots and pans!
We would highly recommend and are already planning our return visit!
