  • "Really nice house in a great location."

    The house itself is really nice inside, the two reception rooms were great, especially with kids. Really nice lounge, dining room and kitchen. Showers were good. The only negative was the double bed in the Jacob room was a small double and I didn’t find it very comfortable. Also the lock mechanism on the front door was a bit dodgy and came loose but I did manage to screw it back on. Would definitely recommend this house.

    We are delighted you enjoyed your stay. Also, thank you for taking the time to provide feedback and bringing the lock issue to our attention. We've addressed the lock, which was an odd one as it had only been replaced 2 months previously. We hope to see you again in the future. Ed & Jen Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely time at Beckmead."

    The property is in a great location being just a few minutes walk into Windermere town and only around 20 minutes from Bowness and there are some lovely walks on the doorstep. It was really well equipped, clean and spacious and the enclosed garden was great for the dogs. The welcome basket was also a lovely addition.

    Emma - thank you for taking the time to feedback on Beckmead, we are delighted you had an enjoyable stay. Hopefully the weather held for you? Ed & Jen Property Owner

  • "Lovely welcoming house that was a little oasis for us."

    Plenty of downstairs space with nice little touches to make the place luxurious but homely. Parking never an issue, 5 mins walk to the centre of town it is the perfect rental and we would certainly stay again.

  • "Great property."

    Very comfortable and warm. We both loved it and would book again in the future. Only slight downslide for the times when it was raining, The broadband speed could do with being a bit higher as streaming services and freesat tended to buffer.

    Thank you for the great feedback and glad you enjoyed your stay. We are waiting for fibre to be installed and live, at which point we will be upgrading. Ed &Jen Property Owner

  • "We had a fantastic time at Beckmead."

    It's a beautiful property, well maintained and equipped. We were lucky enough to have great weather, and found this to be a perfect base. We were a little concerned before we went about on street parking, but even though we stayed over Bank Holiday we were able to park directly opposite the house every day. Beds and sofas all comfortable, and good bathrooms (read the instructions in the visitors book about the upstairs showers as you have to press a button to get them hot!). We would certainly recommend this cottage and would happily stay there again.

    Thank you for your kind comments, we are so pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay. We hope to welcome you again. The Lakes Cottage Holidays Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful week at Beckmead (despite the soggy weather) The house was lovely, and immaculate on arrival."

    Really warm and cosy which was very welcome on a cold wet winters night. It was far more spacious than it looks in photos, and was a great plus having our own ensuites, as there was 6 of us in total. The kitchen was one of the best equipped we've been to...and the welcome basket was very high quality and generous too!! Only a 15 minute walk to the lake in either direction, some local people told us of some good dog walks, which we will definitely try next time. We never met the hosts, but they were brilliant at answering any queries we had....thanks again Ed and Jen for sharing your lovely home with us. We will return, Ruth and family xx

The property

This Victorian, mid-terrace house of Beckmead rests in Windermere, Cumbria and is perfect for families to come and enjoy some time away together.

The house accommodates a group of six and has been very thoughtfully decorated, with a pet-friendly policy in place to make it easy for you to bring your four-legged friends along for holidays with you.

Upon arrival, you will find that the house has on-street parking and free parking in a nearby car park to make it easy for you to arrive and get settled in.

Make your way inside to be welcomed by one of two fabulous sitting areas, the first of which is a sitting room enjoying sumptuous décor, a glowing electric fire, and a Smart TV.

The other is a snug that can be found at the rear of the property, and is the perfect spot for teens, thanks to its plush seating and 65" Smart TV!

When you're feeling peckish, head to the brand-new fitted kitchen, a well-presented space enjoying matt units and integrated appliances.

Once a mouth-watering meal has been fixed up here, bring it over to the tastefully furnished dining room, where a table for six awaits; an electric fire warms up the space, giving it the perfect ambiance for a family meal!

When night falls, venture to the first floor to find one of the three lovely bedrooms inhabiting the house, comprising a king-sized bed and en-suite shower room.

Progress upstairs again to find two further bedrooms, one with a king-sized zip/linked bed, as well as a basin, en-suite shower room and TV, the other a double bed, en-suite shower room and TV.

Behind the property lies a charming enclosed yard with a table and seating for six, where you can escape for a bit of quiet time in the morning with a steaming cup of coffee in hand!

Embark on a short walk into the centre of Windermere and spend the day exploring the attractions of The World of Beatrix Potter and the Windermere Jetty Museum; alternatively, you can embark on walks along Queen Adelaide's Hill and Orrest Head Viewpoint, both of which are areas showcasing the best of Windermere's views.

Why not spend the day at Lake Windermere, where Miller Ground and Hodge Howe offer fantastic water sports opportunities, and a ferry from Bowness-on-Windermere lets you sail across the water to the sights of Far Sawrey.

Be sure to travel to Ambleside, a town steeped in history, which you can learn of at the Ambleside Roman Fort, before visiting the fantastic Stagshaw Gardens or hiking towards Stock Ghyll Force or Wansfell Pike.

The local area is home to so much more to see, from the sights of Rydal to the bustling town of Kendal; you'll rarely lack things to do!

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £400.
