Our family think that Gill Beck is their favourite place in the world. As its our holiday home we've tried to make it as homely as possible so its warm, cosy and pretty, with comfortable beds, in the centre of a lovely tranquil North Lakes village.

The space

Gill Beck has the best of all worlds. Its in the centre of a proper Cumbrian village community with lots going on - pub, village shop, historic church, fabulous river or fell walks right from the door but also within easy reach of Keswick with its theatre, Bassenthwaite, Penrith, the Northern Fells and the Solway coast.

Guest access

The cottage is light and airy with high ceilings (no bumped heads) and no smell of damp (so common in Lake District cottages). There is parking outside the cottage for 1 car and free parking for others in the village.

Interaction with guests

I live in Yorkshire but can be reached by telephone. Our caretaker, Jill Johnston lives the vicinity and will always be on hand to help should any problems arise (her husband is a plumber) - AND we have wonderful neighbours!

Other things to note

If you have very young children be aware that there is an unfenced beck in front of the cottage. Our small garden is at the back with a seat to rest on at the end of a strenuous day out.

The cottage is really comfortable and very well maintained - a very relaxing place to stay with well proportioned accommodation. Caldbeck is the perfect mix of a lovely Cumbrian village but with the essential services you're likely to need (pub food; post office and store; cafe; gift shops etc). We found it the perfect location for exploring the northern Lakes and also the west coast and Solway Firth - which was a revelation to us.

Susie was not there to welcome because she lives a long way from the cottage. However, we got explicit instructions on how to access the property and gave us local contacts just in case we needed them. We had a couple of very friendly chats with the neighbours. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Gill Beck and it was a really good choice to use a a comfortable relaxing place where we could get ready for a long drive and then a much flight home after 3 months in the UK. We would certainly recommend staying at Gill Beck. We used it as a base for The Lake District but it could easily be used for a quiet getaway.

Response from Susie:
Jame and Karen were our first Airbnb guests and I am just so pleased that our instructions re: accessing the cottage were easy to follow, and that they found the cottage comfortable and enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere of Caldbeck village. We and our family visit Gill Beck regularly and we all love it and find it very relaxing. We look forward to hosting more Airbnb guests in the future.
