Becks Fold Family Cottage description

Holiday home
A wonderful modern and stylish base for families or friends, this detached property is less than a mile from the popular village of Coniston, in the Lake District National Park. This lovely property is set over three floors, and includes a spacious living room with a woodburner, beams and a vaulted ceiling. There is also a well-equipped kitchen with dining area, and gas underfloor heating throughout. The bedrooms are attractive and luxurious; there is a king-size double with en-suite whirlpool bath and a dressing room on the ground floor, there is also a twin and a double on the lower ground floor, and a first floor double with an en-suite. Outside, the two-tier garden has furniture and is next to a small beck, with dry-stone walls are built by local craftsmen. With Coniston Lake on the doorstep, and the fabulous walking and climbing of the National Park surrounding you, this is a supremely welcoming Lake District vacation rental.

Coniston is a lovely village set at the tip of Lake Coniston, in the midst of spectacular mountain scenery, in the Lake District National Park. Coniston has a number of amenities, and is the ideal base for a variety of outdoor pursuits. There is superb walking and climbing on Coniston Old Man, and watersports enthusiasts will enjoy dinghy sailing, canoeing or simply sitting back and relaxing on the steam gondola which crosses the lake. The attractions of the lakes are on the doorstep, including Hawkshead, the Beatrix Potter Gallery, Ambleside and Windermere.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

The property was situated in a lovely spot with beautiful views from the back of the house. The house itself was comfortable and large. It was well equipped and tastefully decorated and furnished. In fact we all agreed we would love to live in it ourselves! We would certainly recommend this property to anyone.

The house was lovely and very well situated.
Mrs Smith
November 2010
This was a great house to stay in - extremely well appointed and a good size for two families. It was lovely to have hand soap in all the (many) bathrooms, and things like tea, coffee, sugar, bread, milk and wine. Having washing powder and dishwasher tablets also made for very comfortable living. Everything was of a really high standard, clean and new. We were very impressed. Excellent! Well done!

Stayed here in October 2016 with my wife and four friends. The house is in an excellent location within 10 minutes walking distance of Coniston Village centre, Coniston Lake, and many start points for hiking the Old Man of Coniston. The house is beautiful. The bedrooms are airy and comfortable - a great nights sleep as the area is so quiet! The living room makes a great space to relax with friends. The bathrooms are clean and well maintained. The kitchen is excellently equipped - we had no problems cooking a massive roast dinner on the Sunday. Highly recommended - would love to stay here again in the future!
