Somewhere to relax and unwind and have a break!

Caldew House is a residential property leased to Gateshead Carers Association, and situated within the beautiful Cumbrian countryside bordering the northern edge of the Lake District National Park.  It is designed to create a truly relaxing place for our carers to unwind and enjoy a short break away from their caring roles. Fully equipped and with 3 generous sized bedrooms, the house can sleep up to 6 guests. Two large lounges and dining areas ensure that everyone has plenty of space to themselves.  In addition there is a lovely garden and terrace ready for the warmer weather.

The House enjoys an elevated position overlooking the surrounding fells and woodlands and the River Caldew, with easy access by car to the nearby villages of Caldbeck, Hesket Newmarket, Rosley and Dalston.  The area is one of the more remote and lesser known parts of the Lake District, but boasts some outstanding scenery and some of the best, less frequented walking in the whole of the Lake District.  The Cumbria Way also passes through the villages as well as two long distance cycle routes nearby.  The nearest main town to the north is Carlisle (about 12 miles, within 30 mins drive) and to the south is Keswick (about 20 miles, within 40 mins drive).

How to Book. Once you have registered as a carer with us, your Carer Wellbeing Facilitator will discuss this with you. Carers must be referred for a break by their Wellbeing Facilitator and can enjoy one break per family per year.  A break can be from two nights to five nights, depending upon availability.
