    Rental Home – 
    3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
    Records show that Jas Long was producing spades for the local quarries as far back as 1829 from this former site of local industry, a craft now extinct throughout Lakeland. Today, 'Beckside Cottage' is the perfect rural holiday retreat, having been entirely transformed from its old spade forge origins and brought up to luxury modern standards in a stunning style.

    Beckside Cottage is in an enviable position, situated only two miles from the southern most tip of Coniston Water. The A590 is four miles away, allowing for easy access, and the village of Coniston or market town of Ulverston a mere 15 minutes drive. The surrounding fields and woodland and beautiful countryside ensures that the tranquility of the location is preserved .

    Additional amenities & feature info
    Access to Beckside Cottage is to the rear of the cottage, where from the little porch, perfect for muddy boots, you enter the hall of the 'topsy turvey' house. Enchanting many guests the living accommodation is upstairs.

    Off the lower hall are three bedrooms (a twin and two king size doubles), each carefully and tastefully furnished with a different Lakeland theme - Potter, Wordsworth and Bluebird. The master has both a king sized bed and en-suite shower room, while the second king size double and the twin room share a luxury fully tiled family bathroom with large bath and separate shower cubicle.

    Up the stairs you are immediately into the large living room. Drenched in natural light this room has windows covering all aspects, with delightful views over the garden from large wi...

The service from Emma from the start was very friendly, professional and helpful. As all the other reviews state the cottage is delightful, quirky, very well equipped and very clean. The cottage is obviously well looked after but there was a terrible pervading smell of damp from the downstairs rooms (bedrooms) - this might be a problem for guests with... more
