Parking is in the grounds of the Old Rectory, and its private gardens surround Glebe Cottage.
Journey times to Penrith Keswick Cockermouth and Carlisle are all under half an hour, but if the excellent village shop cannot provide your needs Wigton, a market town, is fifteen minutes north.
Dogs are welcome downstairs, if they don't upset George the Old Rectory cat. Your dog will enjoy the walking and is allowed in the Caldbeck Odd Fellows Arms, as well as the Hesket New Market Old Crown Inn, a 40 minute river walk away, or a mile by road. This pub exudes charm and not least because it has its own micro brewery producing a range of beers, all bearing the names of local hills in the Northern Fells.
