Beech House is located about a mile off the A595 main road from Carlisle to Whitehaven in the north of Cumbria. Consequently it is actually well placed for anyone wishing to explore the Northern Lakes (e.g. Buttermere, Wastwater, Ennerdale) and is only a short drive from the pretty town of Cockermouth and the bustling hill walkers' town of Keswick. Even Carlisle is not too far away and access to the Borders and Dumfries and Galloway is also possible. The village of Blennerhasset or "Rasset" as it is known locally, is a very quiet location and there is no problem getting a good night's sleep as it is far enough off the main road. The property is tastefully decorated, extremely clean and very comfortable with excellent showers. There is a warm sitting room featuring a wood burning fire for colder evenings. A wonderfully tasty breakfast is provided with superbly fresh produce from the smallholding attached to the house. If required, delicious dinners are also available on request. The house and smallholding are run by a lovely couple, he a local and she a southerner gone native, who are very friendly. All in all, a super and highly recommended location.
