  • "Great holiday cottage with friendly and helpful owner."

    Value for money.

  • "This is a delightful, restful place to escape from the hurly burly for a while."

    Farmer Jack and family are so welcoming and we especially enjoyed our conversations with Jack. It's not a boutique, bijou cottage, don't expect Farrow and Ball world, but just enjoy a former family home on a working farm, one that's got what you need to have a good time, in a lovely spot, right by the fells and not too far from the local beach. (The village shop is not especially well stocked so take things you can't do without

The property

Nestled in the stone village of Bootle near Millom in the countryside of Cumbria, rests this detached farmhouse, Beckside Farm.

This detached holiday home is a great base for a family of nine looking to explore the fells and the coast, as well as the Lake District National Park.

Leave your vehicle in an off-road parking space before stepping inside to discover the entrance hallway; here you can kick off your muddy shoes ready for a ramble.

Look forward to unwinding in the living/dining room, where you can put your feet up and enjoy a hot chocolate in front of the flickering electric fire.

Gather around the dining table to tuck-into heart-warming meals, which can be prepared in the kitchen area, courtesy of the electric oven and hob.

On warm days, savour a glass of wine on the terrace, as the children run around the enclosed space and why not have an alfresco affair on the furniture?

When the sky grows dark, retire inside and elderly members can settle in the ground-floor double bedroom whilst everyone else climbs upstairs to choose their bedroom.

The first-floor hosts three more delightful bedrooms, including a king-size, a double and a family bedroom, so climb into bed with a good book ready for the day ahead.

Awaken with a soak in the bathroom or opt for a bubble bath to start your day off right before joining your guests at the dining table for a spot of breakfast.

If you fancy a break from the kitchen, take a short stroll to The Byre Cafe or for a greater selection of eateries jump in the car and head into the coastal town of Millom.

Visit the market town of Ulverston, lined with cobbled streets and ancient buildings, here you can see the comic legends at the Laurel and Hardy Museum, soak in the scenery at Ford Park or tee up at Ulverston Golf Club.

Also within easy reach is the unspoilt town of Broughton-in-Furness, steeped in history with its Saxon origins or travel further afield to Ambleside, known for its association with Romantic poets.

For a memorable escape to Cumbria, choose Beckside Farm.

About the location


Broughton-in-Furness 7.4 miles; Ambleside 23.8 miles

This small coastal town on the southern edges of the Lake District National Park frames the northern shores of the estuary leading to the River Duddon. Millom Museum offers an insight to its past, with a reconstruction of a drift mine lending a nod to its iron and steel works. There is also a statue in the town centre, commemorating the iron industry, depicting 'The Scutcher' who stopped the iron ore tubs with and iron bar and his own strength. This town was also home to writer Norman Nicholson, who has a stained glass window in St. George's Church dedicated to his memory, while the strange 'fish' window in the Holy Trinity Church is also worth a visit. Discover the remains of Millom Castle and travel to nearby Haverigg, with its Blue Flag beach, a restored lighthouse and children's adventure play areas, for the ideal family day out. Also find the 7 tonne sculpture ‘Escape to Light’ positioned near to the Haverigg Inshore Rescue station, constructed by Josefina de Vasconcellos to pay tribute to the Inshore Rescue Teams in the UK. Other attractions in the region include the South Lakes Safari Zoo, Black Combe for walks with stunning views and Sandscale Haws, a National Nature Reserve with an outstanding dune habitat supporting a plethora of wildlife. Further afield are the delightful towns and villages of the Lakes District such as Grizedale, Ambleside and Windermere, not forgetting the abundant walking and cycling opportunities in the area. Enjoy an adventurous break in Cumbria.
