Beckwood Cottage description

Spectacular views of Blencathra fill the large windows of this charming barn conversion. The traditional slate and stone barn has been extended to provide a spacious holiday home with excellent levels of comfort for up to 8 people. Beckwood Cottage retains many original features and includes a luxury master bedroom suite, complete with a dressing room and a balcony.

Conveniently located in the Northern Lake District National Park, Greenbank Farm offers much of what has made this area world famous. The surrounding fields often have Herdwick sheep or ponies and the gardens attract a wide range of birds. Walkers can choose from gentle lowland strolls or the great peaks of Patterdale are a short drive away. Of course a traverse of Blencathra is made even more special when you can spot your holiday home while standing on the ridge. For cyclists, there is a wide choice of routes from the door, gentle circuits into the Eden Valley and more challenging trips around Ullswater, or for the truly heroic, the gruelling Fred Whitton challenge. James Rebank’s bestseller ’The Shepherds Life’ has enchanted thousands around the world as he describes life in this parish of Matterdale. Should you or your dog’s get wet or muddy, the outside tap, boot room and washer/dryer are convenient for getting everything ready for your next adventure.

Back at the cottage, the large kitchen with its Rangemaster cooker provides everything you need to cater for your family or group. Everyone can fit in the adjacent dining area, or smaller groups can take their food to one of the outside tables. The master bedroom enjoys a balcony with a quiet table for two. Spend your evening in the cosy living room with its wood burner and enjoy views of Blencathra. It also has a large Freeview TV, DVD player and a selection of board games. The garden has benches and a table, as well as plenty of lawn to play games on. Greenbank Farm has chickens, ponies and sheep, and lots of room for children and dogs, within a 14-acre site. As well as the lawn, dogs and children are welcome to play in the large fenced paddock. Most major supermarkets will deliver direct to Beckwood Cottage. Pub/restaurant is 1 mile away in Troutbeck and Cocklakes Farm Shop is 2 miles.
