Customer Comments

We enjoyed our stay at Beckside and would definitely stay again. The cottage is a good size and the underfloor heating makes everywhere feel very cosy in spite of the stone floors. There is plenty of kitchen equipment and a good range of appliances. The whole area is really nice for low level and high level walks and Coniston has a good range of shops and pubs.

We were two families staying for a weekend at Beckside. Well-appointed and everything was great quality. Very comfortable -plenty of space, comfortable sofas, really comfy beds. Two bathrooms were great with 4 adults and 4 kids! The cottage was spotless. We really couldn't find any fault at all. The location was really convenient as you could easily access the path to Coniston - we walked to The Ship Inn and back too. Thoroughly recommend. Lovely location.
