About the Owner

My husband, daughter and I have lived happily in Bell Cragg Cottage Coniston for the last 28 years. I am Librarian at John Ruskin School and my husband is a yoga teacher. We are very much involved in our small community, familiar with the local facilities, pubs (5), restaurants, cafes, walks, rides (bike + horse), boating centre etc. Beck Lodge is attached to our main property but seperate from it with its own entrance, parking etc. Beck Lodge is the closest accomodation in Coniston Village to the lake (400m). Once we have settled you in to Beck Lodge you will not hear from us unless you require any assistance/ information when we are nearby and will do our best to help you in whatever way we can.

Exactly as Shown on Website

  • 5 of 5

Beck Lodge was everything we could ask for on a short stay in The lake District. The facilities in the studio, the cleanliness and service provided was outstanding. I would certainly recommend this property for any couple wanting a good value place to stay. Should you choose this location, may I suggest to take a few unwanted CD's or DVD's to be included in the ones already provided. We will certainly return here if we decide to go back to the area.

The perfect place for the Lakes

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Ena and Steve's studio at the back of their home just a few hundred yards from Lake Coniston. We needed walking access to the village and its pubs and restaurants and along the footpaths nearby. We were not disappointed with the accommodation which actually looks like the photographs for once! Exceptionally clean and well appointed, Beck Lodge is a good place to rest and recharge batteries. Good wheelchair access inside the studio too. We certainly hope to return!

Luxurious and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

On arrival from Dublin, we were delighted to find a lovely cosy apartment fitted out with everything one would need for a quiet holiday in beautiful Coniston. This was our first visit and Steve and Ena made us feel very welcome and looked after all our needs. The position of the apartment is perfect - just minutes to the lake, the village and many lovely walks. Even the weather was kind - no rain all week! We would definitely recommend this accommodation and hope to return to explore more of the Lake district and relax again in Beck Lodge!

Lovely Apartment - Excellent Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two nights in Ena and Steve's apartment. It is set in a lovely location in Conniston in a more quiet area in the Lakes District. The apartment has everything you could need for your stay. Ena and Steve were excellent hosts and were so helpful in many ways. The location is ideal to travel to any part of the Lakes District, but Conniston itself has some delightful features. We certainly will be recommending this apartment to family and friends. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased Doug and his wife enjoyed their stay in Beck Lodge. We have had a number of Australian guests stay in Beck Lodge and they have all had a great time enjoying the surrounding area. As our own daughter lives in Perth we have had a lot to talk about and share with our Aussie guests.

From the Owner

We wanted to live in the heart of the Lake District and fell in love with the location of our home and its spectacular views of the Coniston mountain range and Grizedale Forest. There is no place to compare with the Lake district in the whole of the UK for its beauty and accessibility having such a wide range of landscapes in a relatively small area. Although many people visit, it is always possible to find a quiet place to enjoy away from the crowds. Beck Lodge is a ground floor apartment with good access on Lake Road and ideally positioned 5 minutes flat walk from both Coniston village centre and Coniston Water (the Lake). Beck Lodge is also the closest village accomodation to the lake and my husband often wanders down on a quiet morning/ evening for a swim.

From the Owner

A beautifully furnished modern studio apartment for two, midway between Coniston Water and the village centre.The studio is very comfortable, decorated to a high standard with all modern conveniences and is ideal for any time of the year. Located on Lake Road, the ground floor accommodation has very good access and is only five minutes flat walking distance of both the lakeshore (closest accommodation to the lake) and village centre. There is plenty to see and do within easy reach (boating centre, walks, rides, museum, 3 mini markets, 5 pubs, numerous restaurants, cafes etc.) but as Beck Lodge is on the edge of the village it is quieter when you just want to relax. Coniston Water is famous for the water speed record attempts by Sir Donald Cambell in his 'Bluebird' jet-boat - the jetty from which he set off is only 10 mins walk away. Ruskin Museum which will house the original restored Bluebird is 8min walk away. The 'Bluebird Cafe' is on the lakeshore just 5mins walk from Beck Lodge and is very popular with its beautiful views over the lake. It is possible to reach Beck Lodge using public transport. Quite often guests arriving by car park up and leave the car unused for the whole of their stay. Beck Lodge is very well placed for numerous walks to suit all levels of fitness and experience. This can be a gentle stroll to the Lake or Village, a low level lakeside walk or a longer walk into the Coniston Fells. Similarly there are numerous mountain and road bike routes in the surrounding area and bikes can be stored in our locked garage during your stay.
