The setting of the Old Rectory at Boltongate, amid peaceful country side with the fells and mountains beyond, could hardly be more beautiful. Many of its rooms face southward and have superb views.
The house dates from around 1360 with later additions in the seventeenth century and in Victorian times. In summer the sun streams in through the large windows and guests can roam in the idyllic grounds with its ponds and arbours while, during the cooler months, great log fires burn in the study and dining room.
This is the home of David and Gill Taylor and the whole house has the atmosphere of a tranquil, elegant country way of living almost forgotten; a place where hospitality is warm and friendship infectious.
They have three en-suite rooms available on a Bed and Breakfast (B&B) basis. Home cooked Dinner with local produce is also available on certain evenings with advanced notice. Prices range from £120 to £130 per room, per night B&B, with optional dinner available at £34.50 per person.
Situated in the quieter Northern Fells, this is the perfect centre from which to explore Buttermere, Derwent Water and Ullswater, and the majestic peaks of Skiddaw, Blencathra and the Northern Fells of the Lake District. The bustling Lakeland town of Keswick, Cockermouth, the birthplace of poet William Wordsworth, and the Roman, cathedral city of Carlisle are all within thirty minutes drive. Caldbeck village is about 10 minutes drive away with superb views over the fells of High Pike, Brae Fell, Knott and Skiddaw.
