1 Beck Steps

One bedroom romantic retreat in the heart of the Lake District.

About the property


The cottage is situated in the centre of Grasmere Village. Overlooking the village green, it has lovely views of the village and the fells beyond. With an open fire in the lounge, the cottage is cosy and snug in the winter months yet open and airy in the summer. The front of the cottage opens onto the village green which attracts many visitors by day. However, come the late afternoon/early evening, the village becomes sleepy and peaceful once more. With a small yard to the rear of the property, guests have an area to relax and enjoy the dry summer days. (Hopefully!!)

About Michael Jones

I grew up in Grasmere and now run my families B&B here. I lived away for many years but returned to help with the family business and with my grandparents as they grew older. It's a special place to have grown up and I'm now happy to be home again, each season provides a different beauty that never disappoints. (some days do but never entire seasons!). We have worked hard over the past five years to provide the level of accommodation I want to offer and that I believe people deserve. Our genuine desire to exceed our guests expectations at the B&B have been appreciated and now we need to achieve the same level at these two special cottages.

Michael Jones purchased this cottage in 1949

Why Michael Jones chose Grasmere

These two properties have been in my family for many years. My grandparents lived in No.2 Beck Steps for over 65 years and my parents first marital home was No.1 Beck Steps. Both properties are lovingly cared for and we hope they will provide wonderful accommodation for people on their holidays in the Lake District.

What makes this cottage unique

The properties overlook the village green so are convenient for all of the village amenities.

Ideally situated in the centre of the village, they enjoy views of the surrounding hills as well as the added convenience of being central.

Both properties have a parking space which makes access extremely easy.

We do accept short breaks ( so please feel free to email, your requests)
