Caldew House Holiday Home

Somewhere to relax, unwind, and have a break

Taking time out for yourself, focusing on relaxing, and giving yourself space can make a huge difference to the way you deal with other areas of your life, how you make decisions and your relationships with others.

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.

Caldew House is a non-smoking house and as such, we hope to promote a healthy and relaxed family atmosphere. Please note that pets are regrettably not permitted with the exception of registered assistance dogs.

How to book

Once you have registered as a carer with Gatshead Carers, 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.
