“Fantastic stay in the snow!”
Reviewed 31 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Lodge is fantastic, spotlessly clean and has a fab wood burner. We needed it - although the lodge with the central heating and heated floors in bathrooms was nice and warm anyway.
The weather was fab as it snowed and we had great fun on the moors with our Golden Retriever Molly.
Views are fab from the front of the lodge. We had a drive to Pooley Bridge to see the devastation caused by the floods and to support the local businesses. GO - Granny Dowbekins! Yea we love this place so does Molly i.e. Doggy bags!
Will be back in Aug for a slightly warmer stay - i.e. outside!
It you're debating about staying, don't! Just book it - you will love it!

“Excellent Christmas break”
Reviewed 2 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed over Christmas and it is exactly what we wanted, away from busy life and in a secluded luxury lodge. The owners were very pleasant and helpful, the lodge was very clean, high spec and very luxurious. We loved the log burner (log supplied) and it heated the lodge very nicely. The surrounding area is beautiful and the view out of the living space was amazing. Locals in the village were very friendly but due to Christmas everything was shut so it would have been near impossible to get anything if you needed it. We would definitely return!

Tip : farm is hard to locate, even with the help of the sat nav, look out for a large stone with the name of the farm faintly written in white

“Absolutely perfect lakes get away!”
Reviewed 23 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed in October as couples with our 2 dogs and couldn't have picked a better place.

Great location, the lodges are beautifully designed and the hosts of the farm were so helpful and kind leaving us little local gifts on arrival. If your looking for a quiet escape with stunning views, walks on your door step and a luxurious place to crash at the end of a hard days walking-this is the place. No negatives to this little gem!

“A beautiful place to stay in a cosy, luxurious lodge”
Reviewed 27 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

What a wonderful week Steph and I have just spent at Calva Lodge. We were warmly greeted on arrival by Alison and the delightful Patterdale terrier Scamp! Scamp would visit every morning and evening and was so lovely and friendly, we fell in love with her right away!

The lodge was amazing. Well appointed, clean and thoughtfully decorated and equipped with all that we needed. The water was always hot, the shower was good, very comfortable bed and the log burner made the lounge so cosy. The farm is in a beautiful part of the Lake District with great views, about 20 - 25 minutes from Keswick, and was very peaceful. Caldbeck was about 5 minutes by car and had a store, pub and several lovely craft shops.

We had a really lovely week walking in the Lakes and loved our stay at Calva Lodge.

“Perfect place to relax and unwind”
Reviewed 19 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My husband and I enjoyed a short break in this cosy well-appointed luxury lodge, which enjoys a delightfully rural and tranquil location on the edge of a small working sheep and beef farm. The lodge is bright, airy and contemproarily-styled - with lovely homely touches. Fluffy towels, comfy beds, endless hot water and excellent showers (and a bath for soaking tired limbs in after a long days walking), and a well-appointed kitchen. Cosy and warm when the Lake-District throws its grey and wet at you, but summery and al fresco on warm days and nights, with a very romantic outdoor seating/eating/BBQ area with views over the fields to the mountains.
All within a short drive are mountains, Keswick and Carlisle, the Solway coast, and of course roman history at Hadrians Wall. Highly recommended.

“Stunning location and excellent lodge”
Reviewed 20 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We have just returned from a 5 day break at Calva Lodge. The owners Alison and Gordon were very friendly and helpful, even unpacking our shopping for us which arrived before we did. The lodge is clean and very well equipped with beautiful views across the farm and beyond. Lots of place to walk our dog who loved playing with the owners dog Scamp. My only problem is I have reduced mobility and found some areas quite steep but that is down to my poor research of the area and not a fault of the lodge or it's owners. Recommend.
