Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Lovely base in the northern Lakes
We've stayed at Ellwood House many times over the years and love returning. The owners are very approachable and have worked hard to upgrade the accommodation over the years. The dogs absolutely love it too and have not managed to escape (which is unusual as one is an escapologist). Away from the hurly-burly of the main tourist areas, but still close enough to visit them if we want. One week is never quite long enough!

Wonderful place to stay, book it and found out what a gem it is !
Wonderful second stay at Ellwood House, Caldbeck and already booked for next year. Lovely cosy cottage with everything you need, big garden and secure gated drive, ideal for our black lab Gracie. Big bedrooms and lounge, home from home. We explored Caldbeck and did all the local walks aswell as Keswick, Grasmere, Ambleside, bowness, Silloth by the coast and lots of the lakes. Ellwood is a quiet base to stay local or go further a field, could not recommend it more.

A star in the northern fells
I couldn’t recommend this little gem enough, it had everything you need and more. Fabulous cottage, very comfortable beds, cosy living room with log burner. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need. Beautiful Gardens, beautiful village, lots of walks on your doorstep. Would definitely recommend this cottage and can’t wait to return.

Beautiful cottage in a beautiful part of the country.
We have had the most fantastic week in this beautiful cottage. The cottage was immaculate, well equipped plus the garden was so pretty and also secure for our visiting four legged friend. We were blessed with glorious sunshine every single day. We had many adventures walking, wild swimming and kayaking in the Derwentwater and Grasmere areas. Caldbeck itself was a lovely village and we had two good meals at The Odd Fellows Arms and used the local farm for milk and other produce. Would highly recommend.

Beautiful House
We booked a last minute long weekend away. The house was beautiful, perfectly located (would definitely recommend the local pub!) The house had everything we needed - welcome package was a bonus. Beds super comfy, lovely decorated. The garden was beautiful and enclosed enclosed the dogs. Communication with the owner was super. Will definitely be returning 😊

Excellent accommodation
A very comfortable and spacious cottage located in Caldbeck at the northern edge of the Lake District. All the northern fells behind Blencathra and Skiddaw are within easy reach. Keswick is a 30 minute drive away. The village has a shop and a pub which serves good food. The cottage is well equipped and has 3 bedrooms, but only one bathroom, which might be an issue for a large family. There is ample storage for bikes in the garage which would be great for cyclists.

Great place to stay in the northern lakes
Ellwood House is comfortable, well-equipped and maintained, done to a high standard throughout and has a lot of charm. The owner is friendly and helpful and keen to give value for money. Caldbeck is quieter than most areas of the Lake District with good walking on the doorstep and easy access to Keswick, Penrith, Carlisle and beyond (It's less than half an hour from the M6). The pub in Hesket Newmarket is a gem if you like that sort of pub. We do. We've now been three times in less than a year and a half and I'm sure we'll be back.

Lovely Cottage
This is a lovely cottage in a beautiful part of the lakes. The cottage is spacious and well equipped for a holiday. Everything you need is at the cottage and the garden was safe and secure for our dog. Handy little shop and an amazing very dog friendly pub. If you are thinking of visiting the lakes I would definitely recommend stay at Ellwood House.

Lovely property in a wonderful location
Ellwood House certainly did not disappoint. We had a wonderful weeks stay. The cottage is warm and welcoming and has all you need for a comfortable holiday. A lovely welcome basket of goodies and essentials including some milk from Midtown Milkhouse on arrival - a proper treat. You can cook up a storm in the well equipped kitchen and enjoy eating in, around the beautiful dining table. No dishes to wash as there is a dishwasher to take the strain! If eating out is more your thing, then the Oddfellows Arms in the village is less than 10 minutes on foot serving good food, and there are plenty of other locations to eat out at. We booked a table to eat in the train carriage at Bassenthwaite Lake Station. Just over 20 minutes by car and well worth it. We did plenty of walking as we were blessed with dry weather, some straight on foot from Ellwood House and others by taking a trip in the car first. We recommend the short car trip to Fellside to then walk towards to old disused mineworks. If you end up on the muddy side then don’t worry as there is a washing machine back at the house to deal with that. Returning back to the cottage after a day out and about was so relaxing. Get the log burner lit, maybe a soak in the bath the ease the muscles, enjoy a glass of wine reading a book on the comfy sofas. There is good size TV and a selection of DVDs, but also great wifi, so we took our Firestick and streamed some things to watch. A very comfortable bed, good linen and a generous size bedroom meant seven nights of good sleeping. Plenty of wardrobe space for storage too. Great secure garden (an essential for us as we have a pooch) which would be lovely to sit out in during the summer and there is a large garden table and chairs and also a bbq for those people lucky enough to be holidaying in the warmer months. Lots of parking space in the properties own gated area at the rear. There is a shop in the village and well as the Milkhouse & the pub. The locals we met were very friendly and welcoming. The owners of the cottage were very helpful responding to our communications and we look forward to our next trip to Caldbeck & returning to Ellwood House, as we wouldn’t choose anywhere else to stay in when there is everything you need here and more.
