Arriving after a 5 hour drive in the pouring rain such a welcoming and superbly appointed home was a great start. Underfloor heating and log burner made for such 'cosy' feel and for 2 families comprising 4 adults and 4 children this is such a great size with space for everyone. Kitchen electrics failed on the second evening but repaired within 2 hours of reporting! If you are looking for somewhere a little more remote from a village this is a fantastic cottage for the northern lakes and to start or end the day - we will certainly visit again. Read more

Lakes Cottage Holidays

A totally beautiful cottage, warm and inviting, in a nice quiet spot, but close enough to explore all that the lakes delivers. The cottage has masses of space, with open plan lounge, kitchen, hall, dining area, warm underfloor heating under the flagstones and wooden floors, quality fit out, and a good sized garden, with stunning views.
We were welcomed by the owner, as the previous people had caused some damage, which says something about the care given to her guests.
Recommend this to anyone, seeking peace, quiet and relaxation. Already planning for next year, 2 weeks though as 1 week simply not enough! Fantastic! Read more

We had a wonderful Christmas at Beckwwod the accomadation was first class and home from home. The veiws were wonderful and it was quite central to shops etc. The little things made all the difference on arrival like toilets rolls and soap in all bathrooms and toilets, dishwasher tablets. The kitchen had every thing we needed for baking over Christmas and the Christmas tree provided was beauitful. A place we would all return to and recomend.

The holiday home was well equiped and comfortable. Location was perfect for seeing the Lake district but private enough to be relaxing and quiet.Our granddaughter loved seeing the horses in the adjacent fields and had a riding lesson at the near by activity centre.
My husband and I hired a classic car for the day from Lakes and Dales Classic Car Hire and had a fabulous time made extra special by the gorgeous weather!! We loved Keswick and the wonderful scenery of the north Lakes.
Only a couple of moans: no stair gate ,would have liked some games and dvds especially if the weather had been bad. Also as we had such good weather there is no shade in the garden so an umbrella would have been useful.All of these one would not bring on holiday!
The best part of the house was the lovely kitchen area and the master bedroom.
A wonderful peaceful break in breathtaking countryside

Just superb from start to finish. Warm, very comfortable and spacious cottage fitted out to the highest spec. Loads of room for a large family get-together with space to be alone or all around the dining table. Child friendly and so peaceful!
