    Southwaite’s grounds are great for wildlife, we saw deer, buzzard, sparrow hawk, loads of different songbirds, and pond life , the grounds are full of plants with berries, which encourages the wild life and birds, and if you need the shops,Cockermouth is only a short drive away.

  • "Cottage was lovely and the wet gear dryer and the laundry was such a bonus."

    Was surprised and delighted by the veggie box and chocolate which was left for us. This holiday cottage offered us more for our money. Beautiful, quiet surroundings and very dog friendly

  • "We loved our stay!"

    The house was really well laid out and the grounds were beautiful. Our 2 little dogs had a great time too! We have already booked to come back next year! The only thing was that it was very easy for the dogs to get into next doors garden but apart from that it was great! Thanks for a great stay and we will see you soon!

  • "The accommodation was absolutely brilliant, with every care taken to ensure comfort and space, plus many extras which are not always included."

    The organic vegetables were a superb touch, as was the plum loaf of bread! The garden, pond and swing were a real plus for the children - and dog too. The eco regard to all aspects of the cottage were excellent. A very special place!!

The property

This fabulous eco-friendly barn conversion nestles in the Vale of Lorton, making it ideal for an exploration of the Western Lakes and the coast.

Beckside is nestled in the heart of nature yet within distance of all amenities at Lorton.

Located at Southwaite Green, a development of four high quality holiday properties, this stunning character property is built from local stone and finished with materials like oak and slate plus eco-friendly paints.

As you enter through the front door, you step into a fabulous open plan living area with a feature stone fireplace fitted with a wood burning stove, TV and dining area.

There's a lovely cottagey feel about the accommodation continuing into the kitchen, which combines country charm with modern convenience.

Beckside has three double bedrooms, the first with zip linked beds that can be twin or double as required.

This bedroom has a contemporary styled luxury bathroom with separate shower cubicle, basin and WC.

There are a further two double bedrooms, both with en-suite shower rooms and one with a dressing room.

The owners have paid careful attention to ensuring these properties have as small a carbon footprint as possible, right down to organic cotton and towels, and the use of an air source heat pump and solar panels to power the underfloor heating throughout.

A particular feature of this property is the sun terrace which is situated to take full advantage of the spectacular countryside views - the perfect spot to sit and relax after a busy days sightseeing in the Lakes.

The property is set in 10 acres of idyllic grounds with plentiful wildlife, and views over Paddle Beck.

Spellbinding scenery, spectacular mountains and shimmering lakes combine to make this the most scenic area of Britain.

About the location


Bassenthwaite Lake 7 miles; Keswick 13 miles.

The small country market town of Cockermouth is situated in the quiet north-western part of the Lake District, a largely undiscovered and unspoilt area, yet only 13 miles from Keswick. The town is famous as the birthplace of both William Wordsworth and Fletcher Christian (of Mutiny on the Bounty fame) and Wordsworth’s Georgian family home, on the main street, is now a popular visitor attraction, owned by the National Trust. Cockermouth offers a good variety of shops, pubs and places to eat, but (of course) the main attraction of the area is the beautiful scenery and excellent walking in the northern lakes – Bassenthwaite Lake, Ennerdale Water and Derwent Water.
