Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


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.

    Would stay again cottage was nice and warm on arrival beds were comfy as were sofas and chairs and the owners were helpful and kept us supplied in logs and coal. It was nice to be on a working farm and we would definitely stay again. Thank you

    We really enjoyed our break at the cottage, it was peaceful and quiet just how we wanted it to be. The owner was very friendy, told us what we needed to know on our arrival then left us alone to enjoy our stay. The cottage was lovely and traditional, wooden beams, open fire etc and fuel for the fire was supplied which was a lovely touch too. The cottage was quite remote which was what we were looking for but it was also only a short drive out to Carlisle or Keswick if you fancied a day out. We have already talked about returning as I would love to stay again.

    The cottage is set in a beautiful location, although the interior is very dated and the floorboards are very creaky. The cottage is supposed to be dog friendly, so it would be better if the garden was private & enclosed. Unfortunately it is shared & the gate was open all the time. I was worried about my dogs chasing the chickens & sheep from the farm.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments. We are very sorry to hear you felt the cottage interior was dated and the floor boards were creaky. The property is dog friendly as we allow pets inside the property; however the cottage is advertised as having a shared garden / patio and does not advertise the property as having an enclosed garden.
