This guest house was booked by Contours travel company as the final night for my Cumbria Way walk. I was accompanied by four male friends, and we all arrived worn out and footsore. We had left a car at Swaledale Watch five days before, this was agreed by the owners and made our planning a lot easier, (thank you Nan)....

Everything totally lovely. Wonderful room and house. Delightful hosts, Nan collected us from the local pub as it was raining! Her husband took time to explain to us the effect of the recent rain on the footpaths. Charming and peaceful. Highly recommend staying here.

We were weary and wet when we arrived but Mrs Arnold sorted us out with newspaper to stuff in our boots, and showed us through to our room. The room itself was very spacious, and immaculate with lots of personal touches, and a very comfortable bed. The...

During a recent walk along the Cumbria Way trail, we spend our last night in Swaledale Watch, just outside the center of Caldbeck. The walk down through fields to the B&B is beautiful, and the B&B itself, lovingly created by Mr. and Mrs. Arnold about 33 years ago, is spacious and immaculate. The house and rooms are very much personally...

We spent 1 night here whilst walking the Cumbria Way. Although the B & B is about a mile outside of Caldbeck, the lovely hostess (Nan) will give you a lift to the Oddfellows Arms in the village. It is a very pleasant walk back. Our room was very comfortable with a four poster bed, and a Jacuzzi bath in...

I have been going to Swaledale Watch for 10 years now, every year sometimes twice a year. I have grown up knowing the place and spent the best family holidays there and made some amazing memories there. It is always exceptionally clean, the breakfast is amazing and its an all round wonderful visit run by the most beautiful, friendly couple...
