“Secluded retreat with a beautiful view”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Calva Lodge is a well presented and surprisingly spacious accommodation. The owners were attentive without being too present, and the lodge was very clean and well laid out. The owners also left some welcoming gifts for our arrival which went down very nicely.

What were weren't expecting was the amazing view out towards Penrith. and the livestock which were also very entertaining.

Calbeck is a beautiful village only a stroll away with a good village pub (The Oddfellows arms) and the walks nearby provided lovely views also.

The only downside was the patchy Wifi, but then we wanted to get away from Civilisation anyway, was just a bit frustrating not being able to check the weather or make plans to days out around the lakes. Even so the accommodation was better than expected and provided great value for money.
