At Coldbeck House Bed & Breakfast their aim is to offer guests the opportunity to relax and take a break from everyday life while enjoying the comforts and little luxuries provided to make a stay something rather special. On your arrival you will be welcomed with a cup of tea and home made cake or biscuits by the log burning stove in the sitting room or, during the summer months, beside the croquet lawn in the garden.

The house is full of light, with lovely views – either over the garden or the village. There are many unique and special features in and around the house – especially some splendid examples of Victorian stained and coloured glass.

Belle has had many years experience in welcoming guests: in 1991 at Crayke Castle she won the Johansens Award of Excellence, and in 1993 she achieved the English Tourist Board’s accolade of the Best Bed and Breakfast in England. Also awarded the VisitBritain Quality in Tourism 5 Star Bed and Breakfast rating in 2006 and a Gold Accolade in 2007. In 2008 they were finalists in the Cumbria for Excellence awards.

History to the present day

Coldbeck House was originally Georgian, built circa 1820 then later converted to a Victorian gentleman’s residence.

Food and Drinks

Visitors to Coldbeck House will benefit from that legacy and Belle will continue to offer guests the highest level of hospitality and delicious breakfasts putting the emphasis on fresh, local ingredients.

Grounds and gardens

The 2 acre grounds can be explored via woodland paths and garden enthusiasts will find a wealth of interesting plants and specimen trees to identify and a small bog garden on the site of the monastery fish pond!

There is a thriving colony of red squirrels which scurry about the village and dart about within the garden itself and a wide variety of birds – including a greater spotted woodpecker and treecreeper - which feed regularly at the bird tables.

Other facilities

A discounted rate for bookings of two nights or more is available, please enter 'Coldbeck2nights' into the Promotions Code box when booking.
