From the owner

Kirkbeck is a 19th century traditional Lakeland family home. It adjoins one other and stands in a delightful enclosed garden. It is quietly situated close to the centre of the picturesque Lakeland village of Coniston, with local shops, great pubs and only a short level walk to the lake.

The property has many original features and has a spacious feel. Recent additions have sympathetically combined the old and modern to create a wonderful home with excellent facilities.

It is particularly well suited to mixed family groups being perfect for family anniversaries and birthday celebrations. Also, suitable for groups of singles - we can accommodate 15 people in separate beds.

Kirkbeck has been our family house for the last 30 years. We've opened the doors to, what we believe, is the finest, friendliest, family-oriented self-catering let in the South Lakes area.

This popular, yet quiet, Lakeland village has two small supermarkets (one, with a very good butchers), a post office, four pubs (The Black Bull a must for all real ale drinkers) and several cafes all serving food.

Kirkbeck is ideal for children, with it's enclosed gardens and play park opposite. The school, which is next to the house, has an outdoor swimming pool open during the summer holidays and tennis courts. The lake with its boating centre is only a short walk away.
