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.

This cottage is simply perfect for a couple wishing to spend a few days in a relatively 'quiet' part of the Lakes. Beautifully decorated and furnished; ideal location (just 10-15 miles from Cockermouth & Keswick). Wouldn't hesitate to stay again or to recommend it to family and friends. 5*****+
This property was ideal for us with two large dogs. The garden meant they were always safe and did not have to spend much time indoors. Well equipped with high quality furnishing and utensils. Would like to return there again.
