  • "...This holiday was previously booked 18 months ago, the Covid Pandemic seriously impacted on all holidays and dates"

    . We were fortunate that the owners Millie and Richard Scott agreed to move our dates 1 year on. The Govt permitted our 2021 dates in 'Step 2 of the roadmap'. Although National Trust sites were partially opened Grounds only, with Bars and restaurant's outside seating only, the weather was kind so we did enjoy our break away from a very long Winter Lockdown. Beck Cottage is just the perfect place for 2 people, warm, cosy and the facilities are excellent. You will not be disappointed....

    Approximately a mile from the A590, down narrow country roads, but easy to walk to Ulverston town. Only thing that spoilt our stay was the weather

  • "As soon as you walked through the door you knew you had come home from home."

    Beck Cottage was beautiful, very clean and comfortable. The owners Millie and Richard just couldn't do enough for you. We arrived on our motorbikes full of luggage dying for a cup of tea but didn't have any milk, before you could say anything Millie was there with a jug of milk. There was a bottle of fizzy on the table and some lovely fresh eggs, and plenty of wood for the burner. The bedroom was brilliant, you could retire upstairs to bed and carry on watching T.V. from either the sofa or even you bed . We will definitely be going back.

  • "It was perfect."

    Beck Cottage is exactly how it's described, and looks exactly like the pictures. The directions give by Millie and Richard are accurate, and they're great hosts. Millie was there on arrival, and took us through everything. Everything we could need and more, was already there. The cottage is so tranquil too, a great bonus. We'd love to visit again and explore the area more.

  • "What a charming, cosy and well equipped cottage."

    In a beautiful location; ideal for visiting lots of Lake District attractions. We spent a week here in October and were extremely luck with the weather but still appreciated returning to the cottage in the evenings to sit buy the log burner and then retire to a large, comfy bedroom. Our hosts Millie and Richard were excellent, great communication before arrival and on arrival and we really appreciated the fresh eggs and BucksFizz. We couldn’t find anything that was lacking in the cottage. Kitchen well equipped. Great having dishwasher and washing machine. Would love to visit again in the future.

  • "Excellent, modern, clean and spacious property located just outside of Ulverston and a great base for visiting Coniston and many other great locations in the area."

    Millie and Robert were excellent hosts with great local knowledge. Would recommend a visit to anyone and will definitely be back at some point. Ulverston has some great places to eat and drink and The Old Man of Coniston is certainly a challenging walk/climb and not for beginners, but the jewel in the crown is Coniston Water. A full lake trip on the Steam Yacht Gondola is a must and was the highlight of the trip. Silecroft, beach is fabulous and Piel Island is also worth a visit. Loads to do and see and great if you just want to relax and read a book or go explore the many sights the lakes have to offer. Enjoy!!!

  • "Beck cottage was a wonderful place to stay."

    It looked nice from the pictures on the site but in reality it was even better. The people who owned it were very friendly and helpful without being interfering. The little hamlet was idyllic and everyone was friendly. The surrounding area was beautiful to explore and the lakes were a short drive away. We had a lovely holiday that we will always have very happy memories of. Sykes are always easy to deal with, we've booked several holidays with them and have always had a very positive experience. Thank you Sykes, I wouldn't book a holiday with anyone else.

About the location


Ulverston 3 miles; Coniston 11 miles.

Pennington is a small hamlet with a scattering of dwellings, farms and country pubs, situated on the beautiful Lake District Peninsula, an area of tranquillity, gentle hills and unspoilt walking country. Locally, the start of the Haematite and Cumbrian Way footpaths can be located, and the twin pubs at Great Urswick Tarn are renowned locally for their fine ales and good food. Pennington's nearby neighbour, Ulverston, is an ancient market town that still holds a street market every Thursday and Saturday. Today, the town is well known as a “Festival Town”, with events throughout the year, and as the birthplace of Stan Laurel - it is now home to the only Laurel and Hardy museum in the world! Facilities include a wide range of independent shops, pubs, restaurants, a cinema and a leisure centre. All of the attractions of the National Park are easily reached. The Furness Coast boasts sandy beaches and good birdwatching.
