We very much enjoyed our stay at Marlowe Cottage. Scones and flowers greeted us upon arrival and the accommodations were lovely.
From the outside the cottage appears to be ordinary, but once inside you find a house with original details but every modern convenience in excellent condition.
House is well stocked with books and toys for children of all ages, kitchen well stocked for the cook. Beds were very comfortable and the linens of the highest quality. We had fine weather and enjoyed the beautiful back garden.
We spent a wonderful week in the northern Lake District based in this spacious, comfortable cottage on the edge of the quiet village of Caldbeck. Much less hustle and bustle than the more central villages, but easy to reach Ullswater, Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite, as well as Carlisle, the coast and the Solway Estuary. The local village pub serves great food and is very friendly and reasonably priced. Great craft centre just past the church in Caldbeck too. Host Peter was very helpful and we loved the extra touches such as cream tea on arrival and well stocked tea and coffee supplies. Marlowe Cottage offers excellent value for money in high season and every comfort you could want. Thank you.
Marlowe Cottage has everything you need. There was a cake and cream tea with scones waiting for us when we arrived late at nigth - perfect! The interior is very nicely decorated and the house is suitable for a family of 4-5 persons. Two bathrooms and three toilets, very convenient. From the doorstep, you can go for walks recommended by the owners. There are maps and leaflets as well as books and games. Caldbeck is situated in a more quiet corner of the Lake District which suited us very much. Visit Calemain House nearby, drive up to Vindolanda and Hadrians Wall, take a boat on one of the lakes or simply spend the day on the terrace admiring the beautiful garden - one week just wasn't enough!
We loved our stay in Marlow cottage and we want to go back sometimes.
We had everything we needed and much more.
We liked the cake,scones and Cream when we arrived.
The cosy cottage and the gorgeous garden made our holiday complete. Thank you very much Peter and Ann
The cottage is just about perfect. I would go there again. It is well equipped and the wifi is good. Some places skimp on these but not at Marlowe. Clean, spacious, easy instructions for equipment, nice wood stove - what more do you need? Easy to get to, just wish I had more time to explore the local area.
