  • "Property was lovely and spacious very modern an felt homely."

    It was a lovely village to stay in. We did find the oven /microwave and fridge not very clean. The shower in the downstairs bathroom when using the top shower head causes the water to go out under the door into the hallway. In the kitchen there was little cutlery 4 forks and 1 dessert spoon between 6 of us. The patio door (left side) key when used to unlock had snapped. Being a dog owner I found it surprising there were no gate/fence around the property to keep the dog in. A blind in the upstairs double bedroom would also benefit from a blind in the velux window. Also had trouble connecting to the WIFI password was incorrect when enter from the back of the router and there were a couple passwords written in the comment book which we struggled to read if some where capital letters/numbers. We tried to call mobile number thats was left which was not recognised. I think if these little things were addressed it would have been a more pleasurable stay.

  • "Excellent, quiet location."

    Off-road parking for 3 cars which is important if people are coming from different places. Modern, bright, clean, warm property. Everything was set up for a thoroughly enjoyable week exploring the Lakes and lovely coastal areas and towns.

  • "We had a great stay at Beckside House, great location, beautiful house."

    It was good to get basics like toilet paper, soap, etc. Hopefully we will get to return soon.

  • "The property was not cleaned thoroughly prior to our arrival- dust and pet hair everywhere."

    The bathroom doors were also difficult to close completely and had no locks. The bottom floor shower leaked in to the hallway. Property did not have a smart tv so had to buy chrome-cast to enjoy netflix and youtube. Cooking utensils were flimsy and burnt. Also the knives provided were small and blunt. No hand wash gel, oven gloves, drying rack for dishes, hair dryer provided.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Beckside House so much so could have stayed there forever."

    The property exceeded out expectations to a very high level. The Host’s were very kind and delivered a basket of goodie’s on the day of our arrival. This property is extremely high spec and provided more than we could have wanted. Excellent location and neighbours very friendly.

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.
