  • "Beech Croft is a lovely house which is very well located."

    The house has everything you need for a lovely week on the lakes. Keswick, Blencathra, Aira Force, Ambleside and Windermere are within easy reach and the bus to Keswick/Penrith stops outside the house.

    (It's our second time staying at Beech Croft.) The cottage is really cosy and we loved the Christmas decoration put up by the owners. The house is very clean and well maintained. We just loved the property and location and will definitly come back again.

  • "For us and our first Christmas away from home, the cottage was perfect."

    The cottage was warm, comfortable, beautifully decorated with everything we needed - cooking Christmas dinner was a breeze! Very comfortable beds too. The views, both front and back were stunning, regardless of the weather, helped along with the open fire which we loved. The owners were friendly, helpful and kindly left us some thoughtful welcome gifts, which were appreciated. We would certainly consider returning at any point in the year, we had a brilliant stay!

  • "Lovely property, nice setting friendly and helpful owners."

    Downside on arrival there was no hot water. After a day's walking I was looking forward to a nice bath, no chance as water was cold, no hot water ag all. Plus did not work out how to get the shower working. So got quite chilly and turned up the heating and wet to bed earlier to get warm. Suggest guidance ( just a sentence) is included in the welcome pack to advise there is a switch outside the bathroom which people need to put on before the shower will work. This is a practice none of is had come across before.

    Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. No issues with the cottage. It was clean, warm and easy to keep it so, even with 2 dogs. Threlkeld has no street lights if out in the dark beware. There is two rustic village pubs and a cafe, Lots of great walks along with the old railway line path

    The view at the back looking towards Blencathra is amazing. The location is good. We enjoyed our morning walk/ jog to the railway path. It’s also very dog friendly. This is our first family trip with our 10 month old cockapoo. She’s really enjoy as well.

  • "We have just returned from a wonderful week at Beech Croft."

    The cottage is delightful and in a great location in the village of Threlkeld with many great walks possible from the cottage itself. The cottage was well presented and had all the amenities our family required and expected for a week in The Lake District. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. We had need to contact the owners during the week and they were very helpful and responded in a timely manor. I would not hesitate to recommend Beech Croft as a place to stay.
