Ginger Cottages offers a superb, semi-detached Lake District self catering cottage, nestling in the beautiful surroundings of the pretty village of Caldbeck, 20 minutes drive from Bassenthwaite on the northern edge of the Lake District National Park. Beckside Cottage has original features, including a stained glass entrance door depicting a Swaledale sheep, along with oak beams, sash windows and a cosy wood burning stove. Comfortably appointed to provide charming and spacious accommodation, this holiday home is perfect for a peaceful and relaxing break for a couple, family or friends. The sitting room is a perfect place to snuggle down in front of the woodburning stove at the end of the day. The charming bedrooms are perfect for a great night's sleep.
