Situation & description Whelpo Lodge is a real hidden gem within the Lake District National Park. Situated on the outskirts of the North Lakes village of Caldbeck, well located for access to Carlisle, Keswick and the rest of the Lake District, with Bassenthwaite Lake within just 10 miles. The property forms part of the larger Whelpo House in a pretty setting adjacent to a beck. The village of Caldbeck offers a range of social opportunities and some good basic amenity. A full range of amenities can be accessed in Carlisle, Keswick or Penrith, all being just 15 miles by car. The main road network is also surprisingly accessible with J41 of the M6 being just 12 miles. 

The accommodation is an excellent blend of large period rooms and features along with some more contemporary styling complimented by the use of local stone and slate throughout. The property also benefits from a superb diverse garden space, again inspired by the Lake District and featuring a wonderful fully insulated summer house with log burning stove which offers a peaceful hideaway amongst the trees.
