A PERFECT RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
Marlowe Cottage in my opinion can only be described as perfect in every respect. It was immaculately clean, superbly furnished and very comfortable.
The attention to detail is incredible; ranging from fresh flowers around the house, a bowl of fresh fruits and a very nice 'welcome hamper'.
We ordered a meal from the 'drop-off' menu for our arrival which was excellent and very welcome after a long journey. We would highly recommend the food which we believe is home cooked by the owners.
The village of Calbeck is quiet and away from the 'commercialisation' of some of the Lakeland towns and villages but very pretty and friendly. There is good food and beer at the village pub, just short walk away. We didn't see much of the surrounding area, we were so comfortable where we were!
The owners are very helpful and accommodating and despite being 2 hours later than expected arriving they were there to greet us, with logs burning on the stove.
We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing break in luxurious surroundings. We have just booked another stay!

EXCELLENT LAKELAND HIDE-AWAY.

  • 5 of 5
We had a very comfortable and enjoyable week staying at Marlowe Cottage, even the weather was good!
The cottage is very well equiped with everything we required for a week away. We were made to feel at home staright away with cakes and a hamper on arrival. The WiFi was very useful as there, especially with 3 teenage boys!
The village of Caldbeck is attractive, with several small cafes and craft shops. It also has a village pub that serves good pub grub and Jennings beer.
Within walking distance (1.5miles) is the neighbouring village of Hesket Newmarket that has an excellent pub "The Crown" where we sample good beer and pub grub again, we found that we had to book a table for food at the Crown.
Caldbeck is on the edge of the Lake District, but there were excellent walks from the doorstep, or a short car journey away. Keswick, Carlisle and Penrith are in easy reach.
We had a very enjoyable family holiday here.

LOVELY COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
A really comfortable cottage in a pretty village with convenient shops and walks from the door. Cottage was the most well equiped we have ever stayed in. Really tastefully decorated, loads of hot water, tons of towels and totally comfortable beds. When we arrived the fire had been lite and home baked scones and cakes had been left out for us. Fantastic.

WORDS CANNOT DESCRIBE - PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at Marlowe Cottage at the end of May this year with my parents and boyfriend - it was my treat for my Mums 65th birthday. And as per the title above, words (or photos) cannot sufficiently convey how utterly gorgeous this place is! Jen, the owner, has decorated the place so that modern luxuries and conveniences blend perfectly with period charm to create a cosy and relaxing haven that is simply a delight to be in. We were only sad we didn't spend longer at the property itself! The afternoon tea and cake provided on arrival is delicious, as are the home-made meals from the delivery service; don't miss out on this! The garden also gets the sun from morning to evening and if you fancy cooking in there is a BBQ too. The location is also great; you are within walking distance of the extremely pretty village of Caldbeck (Mum fell in love!), and within an easy drive of some of the main lakes. We visited Derwentwater and Ullswater while we were there. All in all, an experience not to be missed, be quick before she realises and puts her prices up! :0)

PARADISE FOUND

  • 5 of 5
Come rain or shine, this home from home will not disappoint. We endorse all the other reviews. Marlowe Cottage is an outstanding holiday rental. The surrounding area was new to us but we fell in love with it and will certainly be going back on a regular basis.

MARLOWE COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is marketed as 5* luxury and it doesn't disappoint. From the fresh flowers everywhere to the welcome hamper, complimentary toiletries and freshly baked cakes and scones - you really feel like you are enjoying the luxury of a 5* hotel with the convenince of self catering. The owners have thought of everything.
There is a bookshelf full of local information and books on walks and the Lake District. There are also a couple of folders - one with details about the cottage and local information - what to do on rainy days etc, and one with laminated sheets with walks around the area. There was even a selection of the latest DVD releases to go alongside the already comprehensive collection on offer.
The accommodation was immaculately clean and of top quality. Arrangements were made to collect the bedding and towels at the end of the first week and there were plenty of fresh towels and bedlinen available.
I have no hesitation in recommending the cottage. In fact, I was so impressed by the whole experience - service, accommodation, location etc. that I have pinned up the brochure on the noticeboard at work!

Caldbeck is a charming village nestling in the fells of the Northern Lake District, almost equidistant from Keswick, Penrith, Cockermouth, and Carlisle. The area has outstanding scenery and excellent walking, with Skiddaw, Blencathra and many other fine fells readily accessible. Sheep and ducks roam freely, whilst the 12th century St Kentigern's Church is the resting place of the famous local huntsman, John Peel. Marlowe Cottage is the birthplace of Julia Marlowe, an acclaimed American Shakespearian actress. The welcoming village pub, the Oddfellows Arms, is a traditional Lakeland inn serving good food and Jennings real ales, whilst in the neighbouring village of Hesket Newmarket The Old Crown is famous for its unique real ales from the Hesket Newmarket Brewery. The Priests Mill, an old watermill built by a former Rector of Caldbeck houses the Watermill Cafe overlooking the river, together with interesting shops and workshops.
