“Five Star luxury Eco cottages in a beautiful lakeland setting”
Reviewed September 11, 2011 for a stay in August 2011

We had a wonderful family and friend's gathering at Beckside and Buttermere in August 2011. All the adults and children had a relaxing time at Southwaite Green and enjoyed playing badminton and croquet on the grass court, BBq's and lots of fresh air in the beautiful Western Lake District. Brilliant that you could take the dogs as they love the long walks up to the stone circle, on the paths all over the car free site and up to the swimming pond too!
The cottages are very comfortable and well equipped with every necessity and lots of nice luxury touches too. Amazing that all of this is powered by state of the art green technology that really works.

“This holiday exceeded all our expectations”
Reviewed July 9, 2011 for a stay in June 2011

This was our third stay at Beckside. The standards at the cottage have remained equally high since the first time we went. The accomadation is built to a high standard and well maintained and still feels "fresh". The beds are extremely comfortable and the en-suites are spacious. The kitchen is built to a high standard and well equipped. Extras such as a box of local organic vegetables and bottles of locally brewed beer are very welcome. We appreciate the accomodation's green credentials: solar water heating and now electricity, underfloor heating from heat pumps and green waste management. Their success is that they work so well you are unaware of them.
The land around the cottages is managed to encourage wildlife. The twice daily 200m dog walk to the pond is a pleasure.
The location is quiet. The nearest town is Cockermouth (10 minute drive or 60 minute walk along the river) which is a very pleasant market town and much less tourist orientated than Keswick (20 minute drive). There are good pubs with food in Loweswater, Lorton and Buttermere. The fells at Buttermere and Winlatter are easily accessible and Borrowdale is only a little further.
We have had good weather everytime we have been. Sadly the weather cannot be guaranteed!

“Luxurious cottage, beautiful secluded location with access to northern lakes”
Reviewed July 5, 2011 for a stay in June 2011

We were so impressed with this eco friendly luxury cottage, with it's peaceful and secluded location. A high specification cottage in a courtyard setting with lovely grounds, a stream, pond and wild flower meadow. It certainly enhanced our enjoyment of the holiday. We were lucky to have good weather, but can imagine it would also be extremely cosy in autumn or winter. Marna was welcoming and friendly without in any way being intrusive. We took our collie and he certainly enjoyed romping around in the grounds. Should we holiday in the area again, we would definitely re-book.
