Welcome Cottages

Lakeside, seaside, countryside, hillside...wherever you can picture your perfect cottage, you'll find it with Welcome Cottages!


A restored barn with open fire situated on a working farm with views over farmland towards fells. Ideal base for touring northern Lakeland.

Perfectly situated for touring

Drive along unfenced roads surrounded by the spectacular scenery of the northern lakes, until you arrive at these cosy character holiday cottages, on a working sheep and beef farm 2.5 miles from Caldbeck. Renovated from an old barn (Swaledale Cottage (ref W1780) is the middle cottage, Ellerbeck Cottage (ref W1821) is the end cottage), they are nicely decorated and furnished and feature exposed beams, with views over farmland to the fells beyond and walking right from the door. Children can explore the workings of a real farm, they can sit on a tractor and feed the lambs (accompanied by the owner). In John Peel country, Caldbeck is a pretty and peaceful village which has, in addition to cafes, craft and antique shops, a goldsmith, clogmaker and bowling green. Situated on the edge of the National Park, it is known locally as ’Back o’ Skiddaw’, a walk over which will bring you into the bustling market town of Keswick. Keswick with its lakes, Bassenthwaite and Derwent Water are a 15-minute drive and full of interesting things to see and do. Enjoy a ride up Derwent Water on the Keswick Launch, use the many walking and cycle paths to explore the breathtaking scenery, experience Keswick Spa, the theatre by the lake and the numerous museums suitable for all the family. The traditional market town of Cockermouth, Wordsworth’s birthplace, is 14 miles and the historic city of Carlisle and the Scottish border is 16 miles. This is an excellent base for exploring the northern Lake District. Shops 2.5 miles, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

Open fire in living room included. NSH, electricity, bed linen and towels included. Cot. Electric cooker. Microwave. Dishwasher. Wi-fi. Shared enclosed lawned garden and furniture. Parking (2 cars).

    Lovely location & a Friendly welcome. The cottage was well equipped & having a log fire while it was snowing just made it peaceful bliss. 25 min drive into Keswick on good roads so not a problem. Will definitely book again & recommend to friends & family.

    Stayed here for three weeks in December. The cottage was warm and comfortable, well equipped and perfect for four people. The owners are very friendly and accommodating and always on-hand. Property is in a quiet rural location with lovely surroundings and ideally located for exploring The Lakes. The cottage is exceptionally good value and well worth a stay.

    As much as we enjoyed our holiday staying at Swaledale cottage, it was to remote. It was a 14 mile round trip just to Keswick and as we travel alot around the Lakes and further and my husband found it very tiring . When we go again to this area will be looking for somewhere closer to a bus route to use for travelling and amenities.
