“Lovely location, nice cottage. One flaw NO internet connectivity at the location”
Reviewed October 28, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Lovely cottage and location, welll presented and well equipped. Downside zero WiFi which was a problem for me as I needed to work. Lesson learnt for future booking, don’t assume, always check prior to booking.

Good morning
Thank you for your review following your stay at Beckside, near Lorton. We are delighted to hear you felt the cottage was lovely, well equipped and in a lovely location. This property does not advertise as having WIFI and we are sorry you were left disappointed at there not being any. We do hope this did not detract too much from your stay and we hope to welcome you to one of our properties in the future.
Kind regards

“Fantastic soulful getaway in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed September 24, 2011 for a stay in September 2011

This complex of several rental cottages is an eco-friendly environment so you must buy into that concept to really appreciate it. Beckside is a fantastic 3BR/3BA unit that is very well-furnished, with an unbelievably well-stocked kitchen. It has a patio (for warmer weather, sadly not used during our wet stay) and a wood-burning stove that we used most nights. They provide wood and kindling and just about everything you could possibly need, including a washer and dryer on the premises. The cottage is light and airy and a joy to just hang out in. Marna, the host, is helpful but doesn't hover. The fields and area around the site are planted with native plants, grasses and fruit trees and are stunningly beautiful. We were even provided with a hamper of fresh veggies, as well as some chocolates and some local beers. The cottages are well-located for Cockermouth which is a charming village with a big supermarket and many attractive shops and galleries. I hate to write a review because I want to keep this place to myself!
