  • "Nice cottage in a good location."

    Village pub and micro brewery 5 minutes walk from the cottage was worth the visit, good ale and lovely friendly owners. I have given a low score for cleaning the bathroom tiles are in need of a deep clean and I am surprised nobody has commented on it because it must of been some time since the tiles were cleaned there was a heavy build up of black mould on the tiles above the bath all along the bath edge and at the bottom of the shower screen. Only 1 bath towel and 1 had towel for two people. The garden rockery is full of weeds and needs attention. The outlook to the side of the cottage was not very pleasant it faces on to the owners garage workshop doors not closed so was not a very pleasant view.

    Sorry you were disappointed with the cottage. I am waiting for my maintenance guy to give the bathroom a thorough overhaul. This should happen in the next couple of weeks. No idea why there were so few towels a rare oversight as there are usually 2 bath sheets 2 bath towels and 2 hand towels. I would have brought more over if Id been made aware sincere apologies Property Owner

    A perfect base to get about and see the Lake District. The cottage provided everything you could ever wish for. And Millie and Richard were so polite, friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend Beck Cottage as the perfect place to stay in the Lake District. Kind regards Tone and Gill Gibbons.

    Thanks for your lovely feedback. It was great having you both as guests Property Owner

  • "Beck cottage is a lovely cosy cottage in February with central heating and an efficient, easy to use wood burner."

    It also has plenty of natural light and we were able to enjoy some winter sun, too. We think it would be lovely in summer with the French windows open and a view out onto the rockery garden. It was the perfect base for us to explore the beautiful area around Ulverston.

    Thank you for your super feedback. Here’s hoping for a warm summer so guests can enjoy opening the French doors and enjoying the sunshine!! Property Owner

  • "Nice, comfortable cottage."

    A little attention to detail would make it very nice. For example a provision of a toilet brush, weeding the garden, cleaning inside windows and cills. Having had smokers there, a fresh coat of paint wouldn’t go amiss, we tried by opening door and windows but couldn’t get rid of the smell. Perhaps sensitive smoke alarms would be a deterrent to future visitors. On the whole though, we had a good time, thank you.

    Thank you for the feedback and for scoring us so highly. I'm afraid I have an aversion to toilet brushes but I do clean the toilet very thoroughly by hand at every changeover. It is a non-smoking cottage and we hadn't been aware that the previous guests had been smoking inside until I came to do changeover. Apologies that some of the smell appears to have lingered. I only thought myself when I was doing changeover yesterday that I need to get my decorator in at some time - I'll need to fit this around bookings of course as the smell of paint is not to everyone's taste.

There was a bottle of fizzy on the table and some lovely fresh eggs, and plenty of wood for the burner.

    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!!!

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.

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.
