  • "We enjoyed a really lovely holiday."

    Beech Nook is a real home from home and a great place in which to spend some quality time if the weather is rubbish. Sykes were really helpful in getting our booking secured for us at a point where we thought we weren't going to get a break this year. So glad we booked and chose this lovely property for a much needed break away from the stresses of life these days.

  • "I phoned the two numbers before the holiday for the owner or caretaker which by the way were both the same, it went through to lakelovers or sykes cottages, my enquiry was to check if there was a high chair and cot at the property, the lady who answered eventually (very poor wait time to be answered) was quite short in her attitude, saying if it's not listed in the details of what's available it definitely won't be there, she just wanted to get me off the phone, when we got to the house, there was a high chair and travel cot!"

    !! I'm quite annoyed!

  • "We placed the rubbish bins after checking with what neighbours had put out."

    The first of three bins was emptied by the collectors we watched as the following collectors disregarded our other two while taking the neighbours. Don't know why they just left them. So we put them back in place still full. Not our fault.

The property

Braithwaite 1.5 miles.

Resting between Derwentwater and Braithwaite Lake, within the sleepy village of Thornthwaite, is this picturesque holiday cottage.

Set in a commanding position with views of the mountains, this spacious dwelling is suited to a large family or group of seven, who wish to explore the magnificent Lake District National Park.

Impress loved ones as you take to the stylish fully-fitted kitchen and prepare a mouth-watering feast for the whole family to enjoy whilst gathered in the dining room.

Retire to the leather sofas that decorate the sitting room, keeping your feet nice and toasty from the heat of the fire as you catch up on your favourite shows on the Smart TV.

Open up the patio doors and delight in drinks in the garden as you raise a toast to another memorable escape with loved ones and look forward to the days ahead.

Back indoors, a handy utility room and a bright and airy shower room rest peacefully on the first floor, whilst upstairs a large family bathroom can be found hosting a quirky bathtub and walk-in shower.

Also on the first floor, four well-appointed bedrooms comprised of a king-size with en-suite bath, an additional king-size, a twin and a single provide room for the whole family.

Kick-start your days with a gentle stroll to the centre of Keswick, where you can indulge in a delicious breakfast at one of the many local cafés before touring attractions such as the Derwent Pencil Museum, Puzzling Place and the Keswick Museum.

Embark on a thrilling day out with the Keswick Adventure Centre, whether it be Canoeing and raft building or abseiling and rock climbing.

Head to Friars Crag for stunning views of Derwentwater or cross the waters to the National Trust Owned Derwent Island House.

Spend the day at the Cumbrian Manor of Mirehouse & Gardens or challenge yourself to an enthralling hike to the peak of Skiddaw or Blencathra, before treating yourself to refreshing pint of ale down at one of the many local pubs.

Take a tour of the The Lakes Distillery and meet the family of friendly alpacas that resides there, or meet exotic animals and birds of prey at the Lake District Wildlife Park.

Cross the historical Keswick Railway Station on a walk along the Keswick to Threlkeld railway trail and admire the flowing waters of the River Greta, before arriving at the village of Threlkeld to see the Threlkeld Quarry & Mining Museum.

About the location


Keswick 3 miles.

Between the magnificent northern lakes of Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite, lies the village of Braithwaite. Still retaining much of its traditional appeal, the Coledale Beck runs through the village with whitewashed Lakeland cottages, two village shops and two real ale Inns each brimming with character! Between Braithwaite and Buttermere is the beautiful Newlands Valley, while picturesque Bassenthwaite Lake is well worth a visit. From a gentle countryside ramble to a challenging hike up Skiddaw, there really is something for everyone. Visit Mirehouse, a grand house and gardens on the shores of the lake with an open-air theatre, or take a trip around the lake. Lake District Wildlife Park, Dodd Wood, Derwentwater, and Keswick with its wide range of attractions, are also within easy reach.
