Description

This beautifully presented, semi-detached cottage is nestled overlooking the churchyard in the middle of the popular village of Caldbeck. This characterful, cosy cottage is situated at the top of a track leading to Priest’s Mill, an old watermill converted into a café and independent shops.
Caldbeck is named after the river (Cold Beck) which runs through the centre of the traditional village where livestock still wander freely due to it being a conservation area.
The village is also well serviced by a pub, two tea rooms, village shop, and a small gallery. This peaceful retreat is set down a quiet track, which is an ideal spot to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. There are a number of walks available right from your front door, including The Cumbria Way. There is some great cycling on the Coast to Coast and the Reivers Route.
It is only a short drive through the rolling Caldbeck Fells to Bassenthwaite, Keswick and Cockermouth. Keswick plays host to a number of other outdoor activities from sailing to rock climbing. Beach 20 miles. Shop 100 yards, pub and restaurant 200 yards.

About the local area

Located high in the Northern Lakes on the northern fringe of the Lake District National Park lie the ancient fell villages of Caldbeck, Hesket Newmarket and Uldale. This area is rich walking and cycling country, with breathtaking local peaks such as Skiddaw and Blencathra, old mine trails and picturesque limestone gorges with waterfalls waiting to be explored.

This area is rich walking and cycling country, with breathtaking local peaks such as Skiddaw and Blencathra, old mine trails and picturesque limestone gorges with waterfalls waiting to be explored. It really is a place to `get away from it all' but is also within comfortable reach of Bassenthwaite, Derwentwater and Ullswater lakes.

The renowned Mae's Tea Room and Gallery in Uldale is open throughout the year, serving tasty home cooked food through the day and some evenings and exhibits paintings by local artists.

Named after the `cold beck' which runs through the village, Caldbeck was once an important centre for lead mining and corn and woollen milling. The old mines have long since blended back into the dramatic landscape and the mills are now craft workshops and a locally well known restaurant called `Priests Mill'. At the centre of the village is St. Ketingern's church dating back to 1112.

Just down the road is Hesket Newmarket, a pretty village set around a wide green with a canopied market cross. Hesket is also known for its tiny brewery which supplies several local inns within the area.
