    I appreciated being able to flexibly book the days I required at short notice rather than having to fit in with fixed letting dates and minimum nights. I realise this would be tricky at peak times. Quick and easy to book & pay with efficient responses. Good directions and easy access to the cottage. The owner kindly allowed me to arrive early as my journey went quicker than expected and the cottage was ready. I really appreciate this flexibility when possible. All was clean and tidy on arrival with a bottle of wine and some eggs - thanks The owners live next door and were unobtrusive but really anxious to be helpful if needed. The cottage is very tastefully furnished and colour co-ordinated. Lots of thought had been put into it's presentation. It was light and airy and all linen is provided. It is close to the local shingle beach which is within easy walking distance. The nearby Lakeland hills provide a pleasant view from the front rooms and good walks abound nearby. Please note the staircase is quite steep if disabled and the bathroom is downstairs, as is normal in small cottages. I really enjoyed my short break which enabled me to support a local elderly relative and even the weather was kind! Gill Barnes

The property

Beckermet 1.3 miles.

This lovely semi-detached cottage is situated next to the owner’s home, in the small village of Braystones, just over a mile from the larger village of Beckermet, close to St Bees, Whitehaven and Seascale.

Dating back to 1734 and located down a country lane, next to a working livestock farm, this cottage is ideal for a family or friends in order to explore the area, with the wonderful Lake District National Park within reach.

Once inside you will see the dining room first with exposed beams and open stairs up to the bedrooms, and ahead of you is the kitchen which has a tiled floor and a door leading to a rear parking area.

Completing the ground floor are a bathroom, which is just off the kitchen, and the welcoming sitting room boasts an electric fire, a view of the front lawned garden and far-reaching hill views.

The three bedrooms upstairs are spacious and comfortable with one of them having a beautiful period feature fireplace and all have a TV.

In addition to off road parking, this charming holiday home has a front lawned garden, from where you can relax with a coffee whilst planning your day ahead.

Great walking and cycling can be enjoyed in the area, and the coast and train station are within walking distance.

The nearest shop and pub are in the village of Beckermet, which even hosts its own music festival in August.

There are plenty of places to visit nearby, including St Bees with its priory, sandy beach and golf course, Muncaster Castle, Hardknot Pass with its Roman Fort and the Georgian town of Whitehaven.

Also the Lake District National Park is a must to explore and has something for everyone, including the Scafell Pike, England’s highest peak.

About the location


Egremont 3 miles; St Bees 5 miles; Whitehaven 8.5 miles; Seascale 7 miles; Eskdale 11 miles.

The small village of Beckermet is located just one mile from the beautiful West Coast and sits amongst dramatic Lakeland countryside. Consisting of a scattering of cottages, farm dwellings, modern homes and two traditional English pubs serving local beers and good food, the village even boasts its own pop festival - the annual Beckfest held in August. The fells and lakes of the Western Lake District are close at hand. Relatively unknown to many Lakeland visitors, this area offers easy access to the towering peaks of Scafell Pike - England's highest peak, as well as Scarfell, Great Gable, Hard Knott, Harter Fell and Muncaster Fell: the lakes of Ennerdale, Loweswater, Crummock Water, Buttermere and Wastwater, England's deepest lake is perhaps the most awe-inspiring of all the lakes. The nearby stunning valleys of Eskdale, Wasdale and Dunnerdale provide breathtaking and ever-changing scenery to be enjoyed throughout the year. The nearby popular seaside resort of St Bees, with its historic Priory, has a long sandy beach, plus the rocky promontory of St Bees Head, the westernmost point of Cumbria and the start of Wainwright’s famous 'Coast to Coast walk'. An RSPB nature reserve on the headland is home to England's only colony of Black Guillemots. Other local attractions include Muncaster Castle with its World Hawk and Owl Centre; the Ravenglass to Eskdale miniature railway, one of the most beautiful train journeys imaginable, the famous Hardknot Pass with its Roman Fort, and the Georgian town of Whitehaven with its picturesque harbour. This stunning location will have visitors returning time and time again.
