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 . Boasting three comfortable, individually styled bedrooms...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.

What a fantastic Christmas week we had in this lovely house. The house was decorated for Christmas already and it was so comfortable, warm and it felt like home straight away. It has everything you need and we loved the extra touches and themed bedrooms....More

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 windows. After an invigorating day in the lakes, come home and sink into the deep comfy sofas. The large flat screen TV offers a range of digital channels or choose to chill out with a DVD, this is great space for socialising, reading or just relaxing. There is a feature stone fireplace with gas fire to cosy up to, but most will, perhaps, be propped up against the baby grand piano with a glass of wine in hand............if only Jamie Cullum were resident too! From the lounge it's into the dining room and large, well equipped,kitchen, where with a log burning stove and a few candles, you can set the mood for fine dinners and conversation. There is a useful external boot/utility/wash room for storing bikes and walking gear, this room also houses the washing machine and tumble dryer. Beckside Cottage provides a real home from home, the perfect place to simply just relax and holiday at, and as a base for exploring the magnificent countryside, lake and villages. Whether you come for holidays with family and friends, or are gathering for reunion or celebration, Beckside Cottage will please, leaving you with many happy memories of your stay.
