    Gorgeous cottage,

  • "Accurately decribed, if anything, exceeded expectations!"

    . very friendly and helpful owner, would certainly return. The surrounding area is relatively low on facilities and requires a bit of forward planning re shopping, where and what to visit, etc. There are quite adequate nice walks and spectacular scenery to be found within perhaps a 20 mile radius including seaside, mountains, and tourist venues which were pleasantly uncrowded. A great opportunity for relaxation.

  • "This is a very comfortable and well appointed cottage."

    Julie is an excellent host and made us feel very welcome. She was helpful with all our enquiries. Nothing was too much trouble and the homemade scones and jam were very well received by my wife and Mother-in-Law. Beckermet is a lovely place to stay and close to several Cumbrian coastal villages and towns.

  • "Thank you for a wonderful stay!"

    We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in this beautiful property. The house was very clean and comfortable in a nice little village. It was only a two minute walk from the two village pubs and a children’s playground. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful throughout. There were some lovely welcome treats when we arrived and Julie brought round fresh baking part way through the stay as well which was a really nice surprise, thank you for everything! Spare towels, in particular hand towels, would be helpful. The only other addition we would suggest would be more glasses in the kitchen, particularly bigger glasses for diluting juice! Many thanks again.

    Thanks for you wonderful feedback Stephanie we will look at providing some larger glasses. However slightly disappointed that your average score doesn’t seem to correspond with the great review. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was very comfortable and an ideal base for our holiday."

    The surroundings are bright and cheery, with lots of little extras provided. Thanks to Julie for excellent home baking and the other little extras provided at the cottage. The village pub within walking distance for a meal was a bonus, and there was lots of information on the local area provided in the cottage folder. A very good base to explore from.

    Friendly and helpful owners. Great walking nearby.

  • "The owners were very kind and welcoming, and the information pack was comprehensive."

    The Barn is very comfortable and quiet and Beckermet is well situated with 2 pubs in the village and the A595 nearby providing rapid north-south travel. The west side of the Lake District National park is quieter than the east, with good access to excellent walking at Loweswater, Eskdale, Coniston and the coast (St Bees Head & Millom are recommended). Be prepared for poor phone reception in the village which can cause problems when coordinating a group, but that did not detract from a very enjoyable stay and Coney Garth is recommended.

  • "Really enjoyed the comfort and relaxation opportunity of this lovely barn."

    The village pub was very nice and local amenities were only a short 3-4 miles away in Egremont. It was a great base for exploring some of the local attractions and we found some great walks contained within the information left for us in the cottage.

  • "Coney Garth Barn is an excellent holiday cottage."

    It is spotlessly clean and furnished to a very high standard. The owners were welcoming and you felt they would go the extra mile to make your stay enjoyable. Not only were there wine and biscuits on arrival, but homemade scones and cakes waiting for us after a wet day out. Beckermet is a nice village with easy access to the Lakes and coast. Sadly, due to current circumstances neither village pub was open during our stay, but it did not detract from our stay and gives us an extra reason to return when things are back to normal.
