Kay and Andy welcome you to their comfortable and well equipped self-catering properties in the tranquil and picturesque Eden Valley in Cumbria. Originally a 17th-century farmstead, Scalebeck nestles peacefully in the heart of the Eden Valley, just one mile from the pretty village of Great Asby, and surrounded by some of the best local food producers Cumbria has to offer.

Come and relax in Scalebeck's 5-acre grounds... or use as a base to enjoy exploring the nearby Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, and North Pennines. Sit and watch the red squirrels, pheasants, and garden birds... or go hiking, cycling, fishing, or horse riding. It's up to you how active or inactive you want to be!

"The Woodland Cottage" is one of three cottages in the...

The Woodlands at Scalebeck suited our needs down to a tee. It was located in the countryside with very accommodating hosts. Our Children enjoyed staying in an upsidedown house and want to return to see more of the squirrels. Would definitely stay again.

Had a warm welcome from Kay on our arrival, lovely touch to have tea/coffee and cake waiting after our long drive. Nice cottage with all we needed , beautiful surroundings, and love seeing the red squirrels on feeder on mornings. Perfect for exploring both the lake district and Yorkshire dales. Would highly recommend

Thanks for your review - and the amazing drawing of one of our red squirrels in the visitor book! I'm so pleased you enjoyed seeing them and that one sat still long enough to have his portrait painted!!

Hi Chandni - I'm so pleased you all enjoyed your short stay with us. It is certainly peaceful here and a great place to recharge the batteries. I'm sorry you had a problem with the shower. Thanks for letting me know. I've increased the water pressure and it seems to be OK now. Kay
