  • "Amazing property, lovely host, loved the goodies on arrival."

    This accommodation was perfect for our stay and was spotlessly clean with all the contents we needed. Would definitely stay here again :)

    HI Lisa Thank you so much for your lovely feedback, we would be delighted to welcome you here again. J x Property Owner

  • "A very nice property that was very comfortable."

    I would suggest a little more information regarding the heating (no instructions are provided). a) a note to warn newcomers that the underfloor heating has a very long lag time but if turned up too high it will take a long time to cool. b) a note as to how to set the upstairs radiators and towel rails

    Thanks for your feedback Alan, I did think that we explained but apologies if we didn't explain fully and I will certainly look to add something on the heating to the visitor information. After 6 months with no heating on we possibly forget how important it is until suddenly Autumn arrives again. Julie Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Coney Garth Barn."

    The owner was very helpful when showing us details of the property and also is very knowledgeable about the area. We did have difficulty finding good places for eating out in an evening. Once we did find a good place we returned there more than once but we always had to travel.

    Thank you so much for your feedback Angela, we pride ourselves on being as perfect as we can make it for our guests.

    The house is spacious, well equipped and spotlessly clean with high quality fixtures and fittings. Julie and Geoff are great hosts who are friendly and helpful. We had good weather and we’re able to enjoy the garden which is a real sun trap. Beckermet is a charming village, close to lovely beaches as well as the fells.

    It was so comfortable and well catered. Having use of the washing machine after some wet walks was appreciated and we felt very much at home. The hosts were incredibly hospitable and even made us scones when we returned from a walk up Scafell Pike! Thanks so much.

    The cottage had everything we needed and loads of space for a family of four. We loved the location and visited Wastwater, Ennerdale, St Bee’s and Ravenglass. All a short drive away. Thank you for such a warm welcome we would love to return.

  • "Exactly what you would expect from a holiday cottage and more."

    It’s the first holiday cottage we’ve stayed in that we didn’t have to clean any of the pans and utensils, everything was so clean. Couches and beds were very comfortable too. Many thanks to Julie for her lovely baking treats. Only downside was we couldn’t get any signal on our mobiles but that’s nothing to do with the property. Would highly recommend this property to anyone.

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback, it is really important to us that our guests enjoy their stay with us and that our cottages are super clean. It was lovely meeting you all and you definitely had the weather. we would love to welcome you all again. Kind regards Julie Property Owner

  • "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.

    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.

  • "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.

    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.
