Wallace Lane Farm is nestled in the beautiful northern Lake District, a small 5 minute drive from Caldbeck Village and 20 minutes from Skiddaw fell.
The name Caldbeck comes from the Old Norse word Kaldr bekkr meaning, cold beck or cold stream. Like most riverside villages their lives depended on the river for every day living. Powering the mill which now hides alongside a beautiful walk known as The Howk. A magical little walk which all the family will love, the little ones can look for trolls amd fairies and the adults can enjoy the pub at the end of the walk.
The churchyard in Caldbeck contains the grave of John Peel, one of the county's most famous characters, born in Parkend Caldbeck in 1776. As a huntsman and merrymaker he had no equal and became nationally renowned after a song was written about him and performed in London in 1869.
A great base to enjoy the Lakes, with everything on your doorstep. Skiddaw, Cat Bells and many more fells are near by which offer amazing walks. Derwent and Bassenthwaite also a small drive away both with boat hire available.
For those on a motorbike trip, seeking the famous pass's through the hills and twisties by the lakes you will not be disappointed! James, John and Tom are onsite for advice on the best roads.
Above all we hope you enjoy your stay
