"Spot on with every thing."
Julie the owner was a dream... made us cakes and home made jam. Ideal location for what we had planned for our stay. Only one word could describe it perfect couldn't complain about anything.
"Coney Cottage is a lovely place to stay."
Julie and Geoff made us so welcome and their cottage is lovely. They had all the amenities and knowledge of the area. We were greeted with a bottle of prosecco which went down well whilst in the hot tub. Home made scones Julie presented in the week and made my husbsnds 70th memorable. Thank you. Xx
"Lovely cottage which is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need,and more besides."
Really nice personal touches from the owners too,Prosecco in the fridge chilled for our arrival,just perfect for the hot tub!
Then on the Sunday afternoon,after lunch at the local pub,Julie the owner of the cottage popped round with freshly made warm scones,jam and cream,and some lovely home made carrott cake too.What a lovely gesture this was 1
"Julie and Geoff were great hosts."
Little touches like fresh homemade treats and a bottle of bubbly waiting in the fridge was very much appreciated. Friendly and helpful with tips on where to go for day trips or meals etc.
The cottage was lovely and comfortable and very well equipped. The hot tub was very welcome after long days out.
"Very well presented cottage
They made you feel very welcome"
"Coney Garth Cottage was perfect in every way for our visit to Cumbria."
Our accommodation was spotless, well equipped and very comfortable. A bottle of Fizz, biscuits and freshly made scones awaited our arrival. The hot tub was a real luxury , particularly after a day of walking and exploring the Area around the Lake District. The cottage had it’s own car parking space , patio and patio furniture which in the afternoon was a real sun trap.
It was a self catering cottage and because I do not like to shop too much whilst on holiday, I packed sufficient supplies for the week including dishwasher and washing machine tablets, dish cloth etc etc . As they say “ everything but the kitchen sink. There is a very friendly pub in Beckermet called the Royal Oak which serves delicious food . If you need to shop, Egremont is close by . We also went to Gosforth where there’s a very well equipped supermarket, a local bakery and a cafe called Yam Frae Yam which I highly recommend but as it is small , booking is recommended.
All in all, we loved the cottage and do hope that we will be able to visit in the future.
"Cottage was beautiful… with great hosts couldn’t fault anything."
There was lots of places to visit and lovely coming back to the cottage to relax
"A fantastic holiday cottage."
Second year staying here, this time with friends. We couldn't ask for more. Comfort, convenience and privacy. Everything you need is close by to have a great holiday. Definitely worth the visit.
"Lovely well equipped cottage with friendly hosts"
"Just had a great week in this beautiful cottage."
All the fixtures and fittings are top class and it really is lovely.
Great base for the coast and western lakes, loads of places to visit within a 10 mile radius including Ennerdale Water, Wasdale/Wast Water, Muncaster Castle and the Ravenglass-Eskdale steam train (all highly recommended).
The kitchen is well equipped if you want to cook but if you want to eat out there is a pub that does nice food in the village (the Royal Oak), doesn't do food Monday or Tuesday though and the White Mare has shut down so it's a drive to anywhere else (The Wild Olive in Gosforth, about 3-4 miles away is very nice).
"We had a fantastic stay."
Great hosts and a well equipped clean cottage. The cottage is well located to enjoy the Western Lakes and the coast. We had a wonderful time wild swimming off St Bees Head, along the river Esk and in Wasdale. Lots of great walking too. The hot tub and scones and cake from the hosts next door was a pleasure to came back too. Also enjoyed a ride on Ratty and a visit to Muncaster castle. Loads of great pubs and cafes near by. Really enjoyed the Mill cafe for breakfast. Would highly recommend a stay here.
"Everything about the cottage was just to our taste, so as well as being very well provisioned it was a "home-from-home" experience that exceeded our expectations."
We enjoyed the hot tub, and all the finishing touches, we found everything we needed to make this stay so relaxing. It's been one of our best weeks in Cumbria! We unreservedly recommend the Cottage, Retreat and Barn as places to base yourselves for holidays in the area. Hosts Geoff and Julie take the time to ensure things are fine. They have made their properties into the perfect holiday homes!
"We enjoyed our stay in the Retreat which was comfortable, spotlessly clean and peaceful."
The hot tub was an added bonus after a day cycling around the beautiful countryside.Our hosts were on hand to make sure we were comfortable and were knowledgeable about the area.Thanks again for the cookies,prosseco and homemade scones a lovely touch. If you like outdoor activities West Cumbria has it all you will not be disappointed and Beckermet is lovely and unspoilt.
"We stayed for a weekend and the only problem was it wasn’t long enough."
The cottage was perfect, thoroughly modern and spotlessly clean with a strong WiFi connection. We were greeted by Julie who is fantastic and genuinely can’t do enough for you. We HIGHLY recommend this cottage and we’ll definitely be going back. Elaine & Chris
"The host Geoff and Julie, could not do enough for you, nothing was to much trouble."
Accommodation was great, hot tub was very welcoming after being out all day.
Geoff and Julie were so welcoming and helpful. Would definitely reccomend. The hot tub, bottle of prosecco and homemade scones were just amazing! Great location and lots to do locally! Thank you
"The owners of the cottage were very friendly and the cottage was very clean and well decorated."
The beds were comfortable and the facilities were excellent. We had lovely stay.
"Hosts were lovely."
Very welcoming. Cottage was lovely with lots of added extras.
"The whole house was amazing!"
Especially the hot tub. Both Geoff and Julie were very welcoming and gave us lots of information - we went to the pub and Italian restaurant they suggested which were both fab.
Definitely will be returning again!
Many thanks x
"Had everything you could need and more in the cottage."
Only down fall is that most things to do are an hour travelling in the car but with that in mind me and my friend still had a great time a very relaxing week. Enjoyed having chilled nights in the hot tub listening to music and having a few drinks. Julie and Geoff was very welcoming hosts came round to check everything was ok. We enjoyed the beatrix potter attraction very informal.
"Wonderful cottage, great position, owners really helpful and friendly would definitely return"
"The cottage was one of the best we’ve stayed at with extremely high standards of comfort and cleanliness topped by thoughtfully personal attention to detail."
The hosts, Geoff and Julie provide a bottle of fizz to enjoy in the hot tub alongside lots of little extras that are missing in many properties.
All items in the cottage are of the highest quality from the coffee machine to the Netflix subscription.
Julie brought round a tray of her freshly baked scones , cakes, jam and cream for us to enjoy on the sunny patio. What a treat.
Good place to explore the western Lakes and on return a 200 metre walk takes you to The White Mare with its fabulous food and large gin selection.
Overall this is a perfect place to relax.
"The accommodation was beautiful, decorated very tastefully and very modern, comfy beds, lovely big fluffy white towels, comfy sofas and even a coffee machine with complimentary coffee on go in it, very well equipped kitchen."
Hosts very nice people, they live just next door, nothing to much trouble, they left prosseco in the fridge for when your in the hot tub and bought us hot scones with jam and cream and lemon drizzle cake on Sunday afternoon and it was very nice to, thank you for that, it's a very relaxing place, nothing but a field behind the cottage so complete privacy when in the hot tub. There is a lovely pub just round the corner with award winning food and a very nice gin selection, it's the only pub left in the village so would advise booking so as not to be dissapointed, all in all a very nice time hope to go again later this year
