Scalebeck Holiday Cottages

About Us

Scalebeck has been our home for the last 8 years and we both love living here, looking after the property and enjoying the beautiful fells, valleys and rivers nearby. Our guests call the area a ‘hidden gem’ and appreciate the peace and tranquility, all the more special for being a well kept secret corner of Cumbria.

We look forward to welcoming you to Scalebeck and sharing this beautiful part of Eden with you.

Charming cottage with fantastic hosts! It is warm and cosy in the cottage and it is our home away from home. Owners are very accommodating and quick to respond. The place is very clean.

Home away from home!! My little family and I (wife, toddler and small dog) were pleasantly surprised when we checked in. The pictures don’t do enough justice to the ambience to the place. It’s nice warm, cosy and clean. Especially after a day of exploring the nearby river and forces. Kay is very responsive and very helpful before and during our stay. She made us feel welcomed and gave us good recommendations for walks and restaurants to try out. Anything that you will need to cook is available. Please note though that there is no salt/ pepper/ sugar/ tea/coffee due to the Covid-19 but has all the crockery if you bring your own. We will definitely be back and with proper rain gear and boots next time.
