Description

Beck Cottage

A cosy Hideaway for two set by a mountain stream

Beck cottage was featured on the Country Living Magazine Calendar. It’s set apart from our other cottages in it’s own wildlife garden with a mountain Beck (stream) bordering the gardens. The cottage was sympathetically created from a range of ancient stone farm buildings retaining many original features such as beamed ceilings and exposed stonework. Our 4 cottages were refurbished in 2010 with English Oak floors and new bathrooms and all have gas central heating as well as large wood-burning stoves/open fires.

The cottage is on one level. It has an entrance hall opening onto a large lounge area with a wood-burning stove, a well-equipped farmhouse kitchen and dining area. There is a double bedroom, and a bathroom with a bath & shower. The cottage which is set in its own wildlife garden

The cottages have been rated 4 STAR by Visit England (formerly English Tourist Board) and are maintained to a high standard.

About the property

Kirkland Hall Cottages

Our self catering cottages have featured in Country Living Magazine's 'Great Escapes'. They are comfortable, well furnished and are maintained to the highest standards by the resident owners.

Each cottage was created from a range of ancient stone barns, a project which was voted 'the best barn conversion in the North of England'. All cottages have large wood burning stoves as well as gas central heating for that cosy night in by the fire.

The large informal gardens and pastures surrounding our holiday cottages are a haven for rabbits, badgers and red squirrels. They are host to dozens of species of migrant and resident birds including woodpeckers, tree creepers and nuthatches, whilst the Fells above us are home to skylarks, curlews, buzzards and peregrine falcons.

Very clean well equipped very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage very clean and comfortable every thing you need and more, well situated with great walks right on the doorstep, lovely garden to sit in and relax, there's a tree just outside the huge window in the living room where we saw red squirrels, hares, voles, and a variety of different birds at close range feeding from the feeders it was a delight to see, the information pack contained all we needed to know I would recommend Beck's for a tranquil holiday and we will definitely be returning.

Lovely cottage - super holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this cottage very much. The owner, Ian, was very welcoming, and the cottage was well equipped. It was a little cold on the first night and we were loathe to light the fire, but the second evening we were glad we did as the heating didn't seem to make much of an impact on the property. We were fortunate to enjoy beautiful sunny days thereafter and the heating was no longer needed. The lighting could use a bit of upgrading, particularly in the bathroom where it is pretty poor. Other than that we loved the place. It is miles from anywhere, so be prepared to do a lot of driving in and out - it is about 20 mins to Penrith. However, we enjoyed the rural location, loved seeing red squirrels, hares, woodpeckers and a variety of other birds each morning outside the window. We also enjoyed the seclusion of the garden. Overall a great place to stay - would highly recommend it to anyone.

Romantic idyll in beautiful surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage in idyllic surroundings. A cozy retreat. Perfectly placed for Lakes and the Pennines. Gorgeous walks from cottage and major attractions only a short drive away. Private, tranquil, peaceful and relaxing. Excellent facilities. Large wood-burning stove. Large private garden with a beck forming the boundary at the bottom of the garden. Wild birds and red squirrels just outside landscape window. Host very welcoming, helpful and charming. Very highly recommended. Can't wait for a return visit.

Lovely, cosy, cottage in an idyllic setting

  • 4 of 5

The cottage has everything a couple could want for a peaceful, relaxing holiday.

Comfortable seating with a log burner for chilly nights (but it also has radiators if you really needed them!).

A well equipped kitchen/dining area, good bath/shower room and lovely, cosy bedroom with very comfortable bed.

Everything clean and tidy on arrival and instructions sent beforehand were easy to follow with a few contact numbers in case you needed them. Wonderful scenery as you travel to the cottage and around the area.

On a fine, clear day a trip to Alston is a must, where you can also take a trip on the South Tynedale Steam Railway…stop at the café on the drive up to Alston for the most magnificent view.

The cottage has lots of information of places to visit, together with a very comprehensive guest guide book with suggestions for visits on rainy days.

The local Shepherds Inn at Langwathby has excellent food – but you need to book ahead for Sunday lunch.

Visit Lowther Castle to see how magnificent it is as it is being restored, even if you don’t pay to go into the garden you can see the castle and have morning coffee and cake at the café. After that it’s a short distance to visit Larch Cottage Nurseries and wander around the gardens and even buy some plants, before having a lovely, freshly cooked lunch upstairs on their Italian style balcony café.

As you can tell, we thoroughly enjoyed our week’s holiday!

The Lake District Fells and panoramic views of the Eden Valley are the backdrop to our exclusive self catering holiday cottages. The cottages nestle in an area designated an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' the foothills of the North Pennines, home to some of the rarest plants and wildlife in Britain.

Cumbria and the Lake District is renowned for it's wild and stunning landscapes. There are beautiful lakes like Ullswater, Buttermere and Coniston to the south, with the lush Eden Valley and the rolling North Pennines as its eastern boundary.

A network of footpaths starts right outside your holiday cottage door. You can wander just 100 yds up the track to experience the tranquillity and freedom of the open Cumbrian fells (hills). The more energetic can make for the top of Cross Fell for spectacular views of the Eden Valley and the Lake District fells.

If you want to get away from it all, explore some amazing landscapes, do a few walks, visit some traditional pubs or just relax in front of an open fire, our cottages are just what you need.

The cottages are the perfect base for walkers, cyclists and motorists, exploring not only Cumbria and the Lake District National Park, but also the Yorkshire Dales, Northumbria, County Durham and the Scottish Borders.
