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.

Cosy cottage
Great cottage in lovely village on a quiet road. Five mins walk to well equipped local shop and the Oddfellows Arms a dog friendly pub serving good food. The cottage was nicely furnished and the beds comfortable. Skirting boards and kitchen cupboards could do with a wipe down but other than that the property was clean and looked recently refreshed. I would recommend this dog friendly property to friends and would book again. The owner Stuart responded promptly to emails and was pleasant to deal with. Caldbeck is off the tourist route so the area nice and quiet but is within easy reach of several towns.

Wonderful House in a Lovely Quiet Village
Our first stay here with our Black Lab Gracie. Such a lovely spacious but cosy Spotless house with all you need in a quiet village, great gated parking and secure back garden. Ideal base for touring the lakes, 13 Miles from Keswick, but not far from anywhere in the National Park. We went to Silloth on the coast too, which was so nice and green. Caldbeck Village is quiet and scenic with lovely walks on the Cumbrian Way, a Duck pond, nice Pub, cafe, well stocked shop and the Midtown Milkhouse, where you buy a bottle and fill it with milk yourself or make a Shake ! Wigton is nearest place for big shop, we went to Lidl (11 miles). Would definietly stay here again. Not much traffic goes past the cottage, so dont worry about the road outside, this is on a side street in the village past the School House, the occasional sheep passed by !! You get a lovely welcome pack on arrival too.

Excellent as ever
Returned to a cottage we love in gorgeous Caldbeck. Cosy, immaculate accommodation and everything you need to have a very comfortable stay, including a pretty garden to sit in and plenty of parking. A very short stroll into the village where you find a pub, local shop, great gift shop and coffee stops plus local walks. A perfect location to enjoy the northern lakes, fells and towns. We’ll be back.

Wonderful Short Break.
I have visited Ellwood House before and again I wasn’t disappointed. Very clean warm and cosy with of course Log Burner. Lovely local walks and I highly recommend The Muddy Duck Cafe for before or after your walk. The village pub is great and for variety I have also found another hidden Gem The Old Crown in nearby Hesketh Newmarket. Wonderful real ales. Ellwood House is highly recommended I’ll be back again.

Top Marks
Top Marks for everything. Cleanliness,comfort and facilities. Furnishings were very tasteful and accommodating. Lovely private garden for my dog. Cottage well situated in a quiet location. Due to our age the village was a step too far to walk but wouldn't be a problem for younger people and people more mobile than we were. Stuart was very helpful and always available when needed. Only slight hitch was hi tech kettle, but then we are a pair of wrinkles, or recycled teenagers. Says it all. Would certainly recommend eating at the Oddfellows Pub in the village. Good food and friendly service. Would certainly stay here again.11/10.

Cosy and well equipped
We had a wonderful few days in this super holiday cottage. Really well equipped and tastefully decorated. Cosy and warm in the evenings. Lovely little sun trap of a garden in mornings and early afternoon, and after the sun goes down there’s an excellent firepit to keep warm. The garden is really secure for dogs too. Very near the centre of Caldbeck where there is a well supplied small shop, village pond and quirky milkshake “bar”. The pub only reopened on our last evening but did excellent pizzas. Beautiful local walks including bowscale tarn, the howk, Causey pike. Tennis courts in the school grounds very close to the cottage can be hired too and are very good value.

Mrs
Just spent our second Christmas at Ellwood and we had a lovely, relaxing time. The cottage is warm and cosy, well equipped, comfy and dog friendly. Great location for exploring the north, less touristy, lakes. Caldbeck is a pretty village with a good pub and small shop for the essentials. The dairy has set up a milk vending machine in the centre of the village with a milkshake station.....genius idea....the kids loved it!! We will definitely be back!!!
