    • “Fantastic Bank Holiday Weekend”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Stayed for 3 nights over the August Bank Holiday weekend! The cottage really is beautiful and not far at all from the village of Coniston! It is very spacious, and has everything you need! All the bedrooms were beautifully decorated! My husband and I stayed in the bedroom with the four poster bed and en-suite with the whirlpool, it was absolutely lovely! You do need to take your own towels for baths/showers! The kitchen is fully kitted out with everything you need should you wish to cook in the cottage! The fridge freezer was nice with the ice/water machine on the front of it, also the dishwasher! The cottage also has a BBQ which we did use on our first night! It was great! The cottage does not have Wi-Fi so the TV does only have the normal TV channels! There are quite a few games in the lounge area ie: quiz games, monopoly, millionaire, jenga! Coniston Lake is very close and well worth a visit to! We hired a motor boat for an hour on the lake which we all enjoyed! There are a few pubs and places to eat in walking distance! We ate out at the Steam Bistro which was very nice, you do need to book a table here! We had an Indian takeaway from Sara's Indian Restaurant & Takeaway which was nice! Either collection or you can eat in and take your own drink! Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, you can see how much the owners have put in to making this cottage a lovely place to stay! I would most definately recommend it to people and would love to visit again in the future!”

    • “Great place to stay.”

    • “Coniston was an excellent place to be. Less touristy than other lakes. The cottage was close to the village and the lake. Great for walking. The Ruskin museum was interesting for a rainy morning. Brantwood was definitely worth a visit, whether on foot or by ferry, or for the less active by car. The cottage was very well equipped and comfortable. The owner had obviously gone to a great deal of trouble to make it appealing. The accommodation was spacious. The garden was smaller than it looked in the photo, but still great for relaxing on a summer evening.”

    • “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!”

    • “Cottage was fantastic, lovely decor and facilities in idilic location. Great for relaxing with friends, walks and exploring the lake district.”

    • “The booking process was really simple, easy to use and quick. The App is really useful also. House immaculate and the welcome hamper was a lovely touch.”

    Mr Roberts, Llansillin, October 2018

    • “Becks Fold was an absolutely amazing place to stay. We were welcomed with a beautiful basket of bread, cereal and wine. Everything is organised in such a thoughtful manner for guests to stay and self accommodate and catered comfortably. We had both my parents ( from the US), my in laws, my 9 month old baby and my 2 year old and my 2 sister’s ( from US) and my husband and I stay at the cottage. It comfortably accommodated us. It is very spacious. The cottage looked exactly like the photos but felt even bigger in person. The front of the house is not shown in the photos, so when you arrive it will look like a bungalow but the house is built on a lovely hill next to a Brooke. In the morning we would have coffee in the garden and listen to the water streaming down. Pure relaxation. The cottage comes with high chair, cot, kids toys, board games and garden games. We were blessed with lovely weather so we had a bbq one night! And you are a 2 min walk to Ships Inn a local pub. And a 10 min walk to the lake and you can see the sheeps graze as you stroll down. My kids loved it! It was our first time at the Lake District. Great location to drive to the Beatrix Potter, Wordsworth and Lake Windermere attractions and also great location to just stay in Coniston and enjoyed the lake. Everything was perfect and we surly will book again at this cottage as another family get together holiday. Thank you!”

    Mrs Oliver, Lincoln, September 2018

    • “This was the best holiday our family has ever had. Becks Fold was amazing and had everything and more that we needed. I wish I could of spoken to the owners as they have done a terrific job in building the perfect home. Coniston is just a dream and if I could move there I would in a heartbeat. I haven’t stopped thinking about it. I would return there in the next couple of years and there would be only one place I would stay and that’s Becks How you can get such a perfect place is incredible and hats need to go off again to the owners. 10/10 holiday. I am getting emotional just writing this. Thank you. If there was something to change for the owners it would be the bin situation as the dustbin men never came and all the rubbish was in bags next to the wheelie bin. Perfect holiday perfect house perfect location just perfect”
