Lovely holiday cottage - well located, lovely rooms and lots of space.. There was a well equipped kitchen which is always a plus! We had a great weekend at Becks Fold.

This house is great! Pictures don’t do it justice at all. The bedrooms are all large and lots of space. The lounge area and kitchen is cosy really homey, has a lovely feel to it.The garden was lovely and the views are great, the location is great love to be near the lake and use the local pub as well as the pubs in town. Highly recommend would stay here again.

This house is amazing! The pictures online do not do it justice. It has everything available that you could possibly want and is well looked after, very clean and spacious. The scenery around it is also lovely, including a little stream running right next to it. I would definitely like to visit again in the future.
Miss Turner, August 2020
The house is extremely spacious and very comfortable.. We had a fantastic family holiday. The hosts are also very helpful and easy to contact.

The owners of the property were lovely and really helpful and so was the local lady who looks after the property on a day to day basis.. The property had great facilities and a brilliant location just ten minutes walk from the Coniston lakeside. There was some lovely walks and public footpaths from very close to the house. The property itself was clean and friendly with a lovely wood burner and supply of logs, as well as a jacuzzi bath. It has a lovely friendly atmosphere and all the essentials are provided including good quality washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, etc.
We have stayed in the northern lakes many times (Derwentwater, Ullswater, etc) and this was our first time staying in the southern lakes. We found Coniston a little less touristy than the northern lakes which was great. Coniston has its own boating centre where you can hire all sorts of boats, paddle boards, kayaks etc. Grizedale forest is only 20 mins drive away (with lovely walks as well as Go-Ape etc). Windermere and Kendal are pretty close too.
We highly recommend Becks Fold.
Mr Singh, July 2020
I thought the house was absolutely lovely.. So warm and cosy with plenty of space for 7 of us and in such a good location. The beds were wonderfully comfortable and we all slept really well. The decorations and candles were a lovely addition and the hampers were a total festive surprise and very gratefully received. Steve the owner, went above and beyond our expectations.
This cottage is brilliant! It is filled with quality and was even better than expected when we arrived. It’s a great location for walks and a short walk to the pub and town. Great value and we will definitely be returning.
Stayed at Becks Fold for a weeks break, weather was excellent which made a difference.. Becks Fold is a beautiful place to stay, the owner has thought and catered for everything you need while stopping there.
The house is beautifully furnished and spacious so if there is a group of people staying you are not under each other feet.
We had a minor issue at first but after contacting the owner this was sorted straight away with no further problems.
We cannot recommend this place enough beautiful place to stay and gorgeous countryside, we will definitely be staying there again.
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.
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!
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!
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
Beautiful house, had everything we needed.. Would definitely recommend.
I absolutely loved the location.. The house was fabulous. We didn't even miss a car as it was an easy walk to the shops, Lake and mountain/ sedentary walks.
Becks fold is a beautiful house with everything you could need and in a great location .. Just a 10 min walk to the centre of comiston .
The Becks Fold Property far exceeds the Sykes description.. . It was a Fabulous, spacious, modern, well appointed property :D
Very clean, spacious, tidy, good location from the center.. A complimentary welcome pack was provided which I thought was a very nice gesture.
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.
Great house in a very good place
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!
Becksfold is a complete package for a 5 star holiday to stay, I really would like to get back to same cottage next year!!!
Such a lovely house, better than the photos from the website. I would use this house again and recommend it.
A lovely cottage in a great location.
very nice house in a good location 300 meters from Coniston seashore very well accessorized
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.
A beautiful area - very good location. We found the house to be very spacious and clean. We would not hesitate to rent it again.
The house was above expectations and when I spoke to the owner on the phone he was very helpful with information about the area.
Accommodation was fantastic and location was spot on. It is the nicest property I've stayed in on a short break. Owner was really helpful on the phone when confirming key collection.
Brilliantly furnished and tastefully decorated, this house had everything we wanted and more.
The property suited having the whole family together very well.
The cottage was modern, large and equipped with everything we could have needed - a lot of thought had obviously gone into this.
Everything - the house was more than we could have hoped for. Fantastic attention to detail!
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!
The house was lovely and very well situated.
Property was excellent, very comfortable and welcoming. Very spacious and attention to detail made it feel very homely. Will definitely be recommending it and hopefully returning soon too!
