  • "We have thoroughly enjoyed our week’s stay in Beckside Studio, which is a unique, delightful and charming little cottage."

    We experienced most weather conditions during our stay, including snow and the cottage was warm, cosy and relaxing. We have particularly enjoyed the walks direct from the door step. We will definitely return - thank you.

  • "Beautiful cottage in a stunning setting."

    This is our 2nd visit to the cottage and already have booked our third. Ideal to shut off and enjoy the wonderful surroundings.

  • "Beckside Studio was an absolute delightful property-it was a proper home from home."

    The owners have clearly invested so much into this property - it had everything ! I particularly enjoyed looking through the folder with the photos of their renovation project on the farm building - full credit to them.

    Cosy and comfortable, well equipped and a good location.

  • "What a lovely cottage so warm and welcoming."

    Good walks from the doorstep. The road entrance to the cottage is a little tight for a big car or 4x4 but we managed it you just need to be a little careful. Great stay and would recommend.

  • "Beautiful cottage in stunning location."

    Truly one of the nicest we have stayed in. It was incredibly warm and cosy. So lovely to return to of an evening. Our bed was super comfortable and I loved waking up and stepping onto the terrace to see the beautiful fells. Fabulous walks straight from the door. You can avoid the main road by taking a path that leads to Patterdale. There was just one thing that made us feel uncomfortable though and that was the Deer Antlers hanging above the fireplace. As lovers of nature and the animal kingdom we didn't really appreciate this. I think a nice picture hanging there in its place would be in better taste. On another minor note we were a little surprised that there was no welcome pack of even a small jug of milk and some sugar. These are just essentials that most people provide. After a long 6 hour drive this sort of gesture would have been greatly appreciated. We would love to return to this cottage but morally could not if the Deer Antlers remain in place.

  • "Very nice cottage, but cramped so can't imagine what it would be like with four people (there were just two of us)."

    Access to the drive and the bathroom off the main bedroom should be highlighted because both are very awkward. Anyone with mobility issues would struggle with the bathroom.

  • "Beautiful cottage in a lovely location."

    Very well maintained and intelligently built to use space properly. The only flip side was a slightly slow internet but everything else was perfect. Would love to stay again.

  • "Very comfortable."

    Quirky layout and an amazing use of space. A wonderful location for hillwalking. When driving in, particularly in the dark, park in the layby 100 m N of the lane and walk in to check entry. It's rather tight turning in from the South.

  • "Another excellent stay."

    Thank you. We were last here three years ago - arrived Friday afternoon - by teatime Mr Johnson had closed the pubs and restaurants - on Tuesday we were told the leave and go home. Much has changed since then - locally, nationally and internationally. It is a shame to see the demise of the Patterdale post office/shop where Wainwright sold the first of his guidebooks. Shame also that the White Lion has fallen on hard times - it was only open for one afternoon during our two week stay. Hopefully it will return to former glory. Glenridding survives with some vibrancy. Although we are in these changing times it was so good to see that Beckside retains the same quality and appeal as it did on our first visit in 2008. Would still highly recommend this unique cottage.

  • "This is a lovely cottage and we have stayed on numerous occasions both winter and summer, the only comment we have is that it would be handy to have a couple of pint glasses as there are no glasses big enough to take a full can of drink and we prefer not to drink from the can or part pour as this does not work well for some drinks."

    We are wise to this having stayed in many self catering cottages and usulaly take at least one with us.

  • "Lovely cottage in a great location and overall we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay."

    Whilst we didn’t eat in (apart from breakfast) the accommodation was adequately equipped although whilst acknowledging the limited outside space (& room for storage) the outdoor furniture could maybe do with a bit of an upgrade. Also we felt that there was too much ‘clutter’ (for us) in the cottage, but not a particularly big deal + lots of flies … All in, though, really good; thank you.

  • "We absolutely loved the cottage, I was particularly drawn to it when booking because of the stream running along side it, and the seat in the window was my favourite spot watching the Dipper flying up & down."

    To look out of the windows and see the fells in every direction was magical.we will defiantly be back, this was our fifth stay in Cumbria and defiantly the best.

  • "We have visited the cottage eight times over the past years and have always been very pleased with the accommodation."

    However it does appear that, this time and on our last visit in July 2021, the cleaning standards have slipped a little. There was a scheduled all day power cut on the Thursday of this visit about which we were not informed.This rather upset our arrangements for a special day out; not being able to wash before going out and not knowing at what stage the power would be restored.

  • "The cottage is advertised with a washer dryer , but its only a washer ."

    also when the central heating starts up you can smell the oil fired boiler . but besides that it met all our requirements and the location is perfect . We wouldn't hesitate in returning to the property for another holiday .

  • "Sixth visit to the cottage; this was our first time in summer so it was really nice to be able to use the beutifull garden."

    We have previously always found the cleaning of the cottage to have been to a very high standard unfortunately on this occasion we found the toilet and waste bin in the master bedroom had not been cleaned. Dishwasher out of order. We have recommended friends to the cottage who have booked for September and we have booked our winter break for November. We hope the usual high standard of cleanliness will return.

  • "The only issue we had was there should have been a blue refuse bag for rubbish - these are apparently left by the council on a Fri morning for the following weeks occupants."

    A neighbour kindly gave us one (the council won't take anything other than the Eden Council blue bag refuse). We waited for the bin men on the morning of departure and left 2 bags for the next occupants - so not sure what had happened the previous week. Its only a small issue but an important one. All in all it was a great place to stay with excellent facilities.

The property

Dating back to 1880, this former farm worker’s cottage is situated in one of the most beautiful Lake District valleys, with Lake Ullswater just a mile away for lake cruises and boat hire.

The property has been lovingly restored with 21st century comforts in mind, providing a charming holiday home for those eager to break away from their normal routines and discover the delights of the Lake District.

The cottage stands in its own enclosed garden bounded beyond the wall on one side by the tumbling waters of Deepdale Beck and with views to the hills around.

The split-level interior has its entrance into the kitchen/diner, equipped with all the necessary appliances for a short break, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and even a dishwasher so you won’t have to lift a finger when washing up!

Several steps up lead into the cosy, beamed sitting room with pitched ceiling and feature stone wall, housing an alluring woodburning stove which is sure to be used in the winter months.

When it comes to catching some sleep, there are two bedrooms to choose from, including a double with an en-suite shower room and a twin on the lower floor, which are both attractively furnished with carefully chosen colours and fabrics.

Step outside and get some fresh air in the enclosed garden, providing a tranquil spot to relax on the seating whilst taking in the fine views of the Hartsop Fells.

From the door there are numerous rambles to be explored, particularly along the high fells of Helvellyn, St. Sunday Crag and the High Street Ridge, or for easier routes then you can walk around the shores of Ullswater and stop off for lunch in the quaint villages of Howtown and Watermillock.

Take yourself deeper into the Lakelands and visit the ever-popular towns of Ambleside, Bowness and Windermere, each boasting plenty of family attractions to keep you busy.

Beckside Studio promises a Lake District escape that will inspire memories for all.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location

ULLSWATER

Ullswater is generally considered to encompass three major villages. This includes Glenridding at the south and Pooley Bridge at the north. The second largest lake, at approximately 7.5 miles wide, Ullswater is often regarded as the most beautiful lake in the district. There is dramatic mountain scenery to the south, as well as the gentle hills of the north. This region is popular among walkers, climbers and cyclists of all levels of ability. There are various water sports for all abilities too and lots of family activities. Along with historical sites of interest, Ullswater has a strong nautical history, having been a popular sailing destination for centuries. There are marinas placed all around the lake. Plus a wide range of superb eateries and shops, sure to delight!
Also, on the west side of the lake is the beautiful Aira Force Waterfall. It is one of the National Park’s most popular natural tourist attractions. Glenridding is a particularly popular tourist attraction with mountain walkers. They visit the village to scale England’s third highest peak, Helvellyn.
