Description from owner


Records show that Jas Long was producing spades for the local quarries as far back as 1829 from this former site of local industry, a craft now extinct throughout Lakeland. Today, 'Beckside Cottage' is the perfect rural holiday retreat, having been entirely transformed from its old spade forge origins and brought up to luxury modern standards in a stunning style.

Beckside Cottage is in an enviable position, situated only two miles from the southern most tip of Coniston Water. The A590 is four miles away, allowing for easy access, and the village of Coniston or market town of Ulverston a mere 15 minutes drive. The surrounding fields and woodland and beautiful countryside ensures that the tranquility of the location is preserved .

Boasting three comfortable, individually styled bedrooms (2 x king, 1 x twin) easily sleeping six people, Beckside Cottage is the perfect location for a family holiday, big birthday event or just a chance to chill in company of friends.

Everything you require is provided should you decide to self-cater and make the most of the large cottage dining table seating for eight. The impressive fully fitted wooden kitchen has a large five burner, double oven range cooker, fridge/ freezer and dishwasher and opens out into the dining area, with it's cosy log burner.

The cottage has a super garden to the side and to the rear, set out on varying levels, full of colour throughout the year, complete with stream for dipping your toes at the water's edge.

Beckside Cottage offers both a home from home where you can simply relax and tuck up with a best seller and a base for exploring the National Park, that pleases all who stay.

Further details indoors

Access to Beckside Cottage is to the rear of the cottage, where from the little porch, perfect for muddy boots, you enter the hall of the 'topsy turvey' house. Enchanting many guests the living accommodation is upstairs.

Off the lower hall are three bedrooms (a twin and two king size doubles), each carefully and tastefully furnished with a different Lakeland theme - Potter, Wordsworth and Bluebird. The master has both a king sized bed and en-suite shower room, while the second king size double and the twin room share a luxury fully tiled family bathroom with large bath and separate shower cubicle.

Up the stairs you are immediately into the large living room. Drenched in natural light this room has windows covering all aspects, with delightful views over the garden from large windows. After an invigorating day in the lakes, come home and sink into the deep comfy sofas. The large flat screen TV offers a range of digital channels or choose to chill out with a DVD, this is great space for socialising, reading or just relaxing. There is a feature stone fireplace with gas fire to cosy up to, but most will, perhaps, be propped up against the baby grand piano with a glass of wine in hand............if only Jamie Cullum were resident too!

From the lounge it's into the dining room and large, well equipped,kitchen, where with a log burning stove and a few candles, you can set the mood for fine dinners and conversation.

There is a useful external boot/utility/wash room for storing bikes and walking gear, this room also houses the washing machine and tumble dryer.

Beckside Cottage provides a real home from home, the perfect place to simply just relax and holiday at, and as a base for exploring the magnificent countryside, lake and villages. Whether you come for holidays with family and friends, or are gathering for reunion or celebration, Beckside Cottage will please, leaving you with many happy memories of your stay.

Further details outdoors

The large garden is a mix of light and shade, created by shrubs, small trees, grass and rockery with a fine vista through the trees out towards the Coniston mountain range. There is also a small stream runs through so please take care with young children.

There is private off road parking parking for up to four cars.

The back entrance door leads to a lovely paved patio with table and chairs for al fresco dining or evening soirees.
