“Wonderful cottage in a great location ”
Reviewed 6 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We booked Marlowe cottage for half term week in May/June. On arrival we were greeted by delicious scones, cream, jam and cakes and a bottle of red wine. The house is beautifully furnished and very well equipped. All the basics you could need for a week's stay were provided - tea bags, capsules for the coffee machine, toiletries, logs for the fire, charcoal for the BBQ and more.
The cottage is in a lovely, quiet village surrounded by beautiful countryside. There are 2 pubs within walking distance, one of which even has its own brewery!
There are great walks nearby- my personal favourite is called Great Cockup (yes really!). The more famous sites of the Lakes are not too far to drive.
We have stayed in a lot of cottages and this really is one of the best.

“A gorgeous, welcoming cottage - such a great place to stay”
Reviewed 17 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

It was wonderful to arrive at the cottage, to discover delicious scones and cakes for afternoon tea, with the log burner all set, so that we could enjoy the fire straightaway. The lounge is a great area, with original features. cushy sofas, a wide choice of DVDs, books and games, and a lovely dining table for leisurely meals.
The kitchen is very well stocked with drinks and equipment, and we enjoyed the complimentary bottle of wine.
The bedrooms are beautifully decorated, and the beds are comfy. Our sons were suitably impressed with the whirlpool bath and the showers. Even in April it was possible to try the barbecue and have lunch outdoors on the patio.
Caldbeck is a good place from which to explore the Lakes, and it's very convenient to have a local village shop.

“Wonderful place to relax and explore the area”
Reviewed 10 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

This cottage is an excellent place to spend a nice relaxing vacation and/or hike through the surrounding area.

The property has all the amenities of home, in a nice old building with a lot of character. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to visit the Lake District.

“Great cottage ”
Reviewed 4 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

I don't write many reviews but Marlow Cottage is excellent and we really enjoyed our stay. We visited with our baby and parents, there was plenty of room for us all
and great that we had our own bathrooms and lovely bedrooms with a very comfy
bed! The cot for our baby was made up when we arrived with sheets and blankets and even his own towels! Plenty of towels for us too.
Fresh scones with jam and cream and a cake too for our arrival! Milk, eggs and wine were also left for us. It really is a lovely place to stay, very homely and very well equipped. We all said how nice our stay had been here and would certainly recommend it to family and friends.
Thank you!

“Superb accommodation with great extras”
Reviewed 18 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My wife Ruth and I have stayed in cottages for may years but this is one of the best ever. It is extremely well equipped, clean and comfortable with an easy to use log burner, superbly comfortable beds, efficient central heating and many extras that are welcome and not commonly found. These include plentiful logs for a weeks stay, staples such as eggs, tea, coffee, milk and a brilliant cream tea awaiting our arrival with scones and a cake that took us a week to get through! The bottle of wine was a lovely touch as was the ready laid fire. Lots of helpful information on the surrounding area and laminated maps that you can borrow for some great walks either from the cottage or a bit further afield. Peter was a source of advice about local pubs/places to eat and went out of his way to make our stay a special one. Our deposit was refunded very promptly. Would absolutely recommend this cottage as a base for this lovely area.

“A Gem in Caldbeck”
Reviewed 1 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We chose Marlowe cottage because of the facilities advertised which were excellent. Althogh it was "high summer" it turned chilly at night and in the morning. The oil fired central heating was easy to use and very effective. A washer dryer allowed us to do a wash as we had arrived from another cottage in the Cotswalds. Two double bedrooms were upstairs and a smaller childrens room downstairs was facinating. The room we chose had a super large comfy bed while we used the other room to park our luggage. However luggage can be easily stowed downstairs. On our arrival the kind owners had left four fresh scones with jam and cream, a large ginger bread, yogurts, milk and eggs, while a bottle of red wine was in the kitchen. We had a great week in Cumbria using Caldbeck as a base for visiting all areas of the Lake District.
The owners dropped in to see how we were and were contactable free via a pay phone in the cottage. We would certainly return to Marlowe cottage in a future holiday.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed 29 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at the cottage two adults and three kids and had everything that was needed for families with kids. The cottage has been equipped excellently. There was nothing missing. The landlord was very generous with towels, bed sheets, kitchen equipment, games, DVD`s, books, wood for the fireplace and all the rest what you have in a proper family house. The quality of the furniture was very good. We all loved the beautiful view from the rooms and the quietness of the village. The layout of the house gave us moms the chance to come downstairs in the evenings and watch movies while the kids were sleeping upstairs. We also met the landlord Peter, who is a very nice person to speak with. He immediately refunded us the deposit back as soon as we came back from the holiday.
