We recently spent a long weekend at Beckwood to celebrate my daughter's 30 th birthday. The accommodation is light, spacious and very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed quad biking, tree climbing and Archery at Rookin House Activity Centre , which is a ten minute walk from Beckwood. Paul the owner is very helpful and can provide lots of information on local walks and hikes. We loved our meals at The Horse and Farrier at Threlkeld ( ten minutes by car) and Lucy's On A Plate in Ambleside. We also enjoyed the wood burning stove in the evenings. The weather was good and we woke up to lovely views towards Blencathra. Fresh eggs for breakfast was a treat! This accommodation is in a lovely part of The Lakes and is perfect for a family holiday. Highly recommended.
We have just returned home after the most wonderful weeks stay at Beckwood with my whole family. It is a beautiful house set in an even more beautiful location, we will all miss waking up to the incredible views, and ever chaging colours of the countryside. We had a fantastic time exploring the Lake district, and found the location ideal for amusing us all from my shopaholic sister, hyper nieces and the rest of us keen to walk. The house is so spacious we could all find our own space although we all tended to settle in by the log burning stove in the evenings very cosy. Paul, Fiona and Micheal were very welcoming and helpful and the freshly laid eggs on arrival were a wonderful treat. We will definitely be booking again!
We enjoyed a fantastic stay at Beckwood. Very children friendly. Paul (owner) is outstanding, even took children to feed chickens and collect their own eggs, which were delicious. Very relaxing place, couldn't of asked for more. Only downfall was that sofa's could do with updating, butvthis didn't effect the holiday at all. Would love to return in the future.
We stayed in Beckwood for October half term and had an amazing time. The owners live next door and were very friendly and happy to give advice about places to visit, etc - we even had fresh eggs on arrival. The house was large, warm and comfy. It was lovely to be able to bring our dogs and 5 children and have lots of space to relax. The house has a great garden and amazing views. The area is superb - in between Penrith and Keswick and very close to Ullswater and spectacular walks and mountains. We will definitely be back.

We booked this lovely cottage for a family trip away. The accommodation was well eqipped, spacious and perfect for an early toddler.
The cottage is in a gorgeous location, between Keswick and Penrith - a short drive from some fabulous walks - and a 5 min walk from a fun activity centre. There is also a brilliant farm shop nearby, jammed packed with great food.
Paul was a great host. I would definitely recommend.
