Property Description

Holiday home
This delightful semi-detached cottage is on the edge of the village of pretty Cumbrian village of Scales and offers welcoming accommodation for up to four people. The kitchen is compact but has everything a kitchen should have and is well fitted with a useful porch area. The lounge is spacious and inviting with a cosy multi-fuel stove and houses the dining area. The two bedrooms are charming and simply but pleasantly decorated, giving the rooms a tranquil atmosphere. The ground floor shower room is well appointed and the outside space offers a small front garden, a patio area with furniture to sit out and relax and soak up the peace and quiet. This property is a real ‘home from home' and makes the ideal base to see all this stunning area has to offer.

Accomodation Details
Two bedrooms: 1 x double, 1 x twin. Ground floor shower room with shower, basin & WC. Kitchen leading to front porch. Sitting room with dining area & multi-fuel stove.

The small village of Scales is situated on the Cumbrian Peninsula and makes a fabulous base to explore this gem of an area. The name Scales originates from an old Norse word meaning ‘huts'. Ulveston, an ancient market town, is only four miles away and it has retained its community spirit, holding a thriving street market every Thursday and Saturday and there are many festivals throughout the year. One of the claims to fame Ulveston has is that it is the birthplace of Stan Laurel, and to commemorate their famous son there is a Laurel and Hardy Museum. The Furness Coast has unspoiled sandy beaches and bird watching opportunities and the Cumbrian national Park is within easy reach. With plenty of family attractions in the area, this a great place for a holiday.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

Central heating system fuelled by boiler fed from multi-fuel stove plus electric heater and immersion heater. Electric cooker, microwave, fridge, freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer, WiFi, TV, DVD player. Fuel, power & starter pack of wood for multi-fuel stove inc. in rent (additional fuel available locally). Bed linen inc in rent. Cot & highchair on request. Off road parking for two cars. Patio area with furniture. Two well-behaved dogs welcome. Sorry, no smoking. Shops 4 miles. Pub 1 mile. Note: property only takes 3 night bookings or more.

Self-Catering Reviews

Mrs Jackson
July 2020
The location of Beech Cottage was perfect for us, close to the beach and the common for walking the dogs.. On first impressions the cottage looked quaint and cosy inside with there being plenty of room for 3 adults and 2 dogs, the addition of the porch was ideal for wet days. The cottage seemed well equipped but I would recommend that a bigger pan set and a few more oven trays should be supplied. Also the oven could do with a good clean. My other niggle is with the garden, its a large border running between the drive and the path, not somewhere that you can let a dog safely out into or where you can sit. The patio was on the drive but because we had 2 tightly parked cars we couldnt use it. Overall a lovely warm cottage.

Please kindly note that it was very disappointing to find that even basic cleaning had not been carried out to a satisfactory standard within the above property.. The following items/areas were not found to be in order: Shower/Toilet/Main Living area floor/Dirty oven dishes in the cupboard, (that had either been left dirty by the previous persons, and had not been picked by the Owner). There was no heating provided to dry Towls within the Bathroom, (there was a piped heated towel rail, but this was linked to the central heating system, which was off). One side of the matress within the mainbedroom was very uncomfortable with a spring. There were no 'Oven gloves' provided, (this is a basic item and a new pair should have been provided). It was not satisfactory at all trying to use 'Tea-towels', and there was not even a potato peeler provided! (this is all basic stuff). The front garden is not, 'Dog friendly' as it is open with no gates off the main parking area and the road is very busy with 'Farm traffic'. It should also be noted that there was 'no' local holiday information booklet provided' for the above property. The above list overall is very disappointing too have to feedback, and not up to the required standard that i would normally expect from 'Skyes Cottages' who i have used for a number of years, and usually twice a year. During the current climate i would not have expected to have found any, 'Cleaning issues'? and it gives me little confidence, that the 'Self-Catering' Industry are correctly managing these factors? I would not recomend the above property, untill all of the above items are addressed accordingly.

We liked Beech cottage’ it was quaint and comfortable and everything necessary was there, the location was lovely! We had Difficulty getting our car on the drive due to the sharp gradient from the road so had to park down the road. A table by the beach outside would be good! All in all a good holiday thank you

Arrived late after a 10 hour journey and disappointed to find there was no welcome pack apart from dog biscuits ( we don't have a dog! !). Fortunately we had our own milk and tea with us. The cottage was easy to warm up quickly using the electric heaters. Two small saucepans and an omelette pan does limit the cooking, but we managed. The location was quiet and we had a relaxing holiday.

Very nice with good equipment for a small cottage, washer, tumbler, good-size freezer, although take your own pans if you like to cook as those supplied were tiny! We found the cottage very nice for three, with comfortable beds. Our only sight issue was the lack of outside space, no grass so you had to walk the dogs up a nearby bridleway, and no line to dry towels - though a towel rail is provided that presumably runs off the wood-burner. But would certainly recommend :)

We read the previous reviews of Beech Cottage and were concerned about the warmth and the shower, but the shower was fine and there were plenty of electric heaters that quickly had the cottage beautifully warm.. The cottage itself was great and Scales is perfect if you are looking for a quiet holiday. However, if you do not like driving in narrow country lanes, this is not the place for you.

A lovely little cottage my dog Rory and I had a wonderful time.. I would recommend it to dog owners, the beach is a ten minute car ride away and there are some lovely walks around the cottage. The owner had left chocolates and biscuits for Rory. The heating is very flexible, with a log burner and electric radiators. Great value for money, we will book again.

Beech cottsge is ok but has a cold bathroom with no radiator that works and an old shower that is weak
Ms Richardson
February 2018
The property was well looked after and location good however the heating was insufficient without spending a small fortune on wood.. The log burner does not heat enough to get hot water and the house was cold despite its use. This was impeded by the 4.5tog duvet on the bed and thin blankets provided. If you want to have a warm shower then this was again difficult as the water pressure was so low that it just trickled out. As the fuel burner is the main source of heating it is unbelievable that you are charged extra for it. You wouldn't pay extra for central heating so we fail to understand why the wood is only supplied at an additional cost. The property is located but for a couple who are experienced with wood burners as we have one at home and are well used to travelling in all weather's and accomodation types we were disappointed with the cottage.

Lovely cosy little cottage ideal for me and my dog.. There was outside space but not secure but that didn’t matter as just round the corner was a bridle path for walks . An ideal base for the coast or Birkrigg common great walks. Loved my holiday didn’t want to come home. Owner very helpful

This was a late booking and we were lucky to find such a nice cottage to take pets. We loved location, the freedom it gave us, and we were very lucky with the weather. The neighbours were friendly and let us have lots of information about the area.

Lovely, cosy cottage, very well maintained in a peaceful area. We enjoyed our stay very much.
April 2010
We stayed in Beech Cottage over the February Half Term Holiday. We arrived late on Friday evening and were delighted to find the fire was lit, there was fresh milk in the fridge, and tea and coffee on the worktop in the kitchen, all we needed to do was boil the kettle! The fuel was included, the cottage was warm, clean and well equipped. We had a fantastic stay and would recommened the property to anyone wanting a quiet break.
Miss Winstanley
March 2010
The holiday was lovely, the cottage was very comfortable and nicely laid out and in a lovely peaceful village but not too far from major towns. The weather was glorious which obviously helped!
Mr Keates
February 2010
The area surrounding the cottage itself was beautiful with peace and tranquility. We were met by the owners who had already lit the fire and left us fresh milk in the fridge!
