Detached converted barn which sits next to a pretty stream, this picture postcard property has a wildlife garden and featured in The Country Living Magazine calendar. It is the perfect romantic hideaway and offers a rural location and a great base for some time away from the everyday hustle and bustle.  Set at the foot of Cross Fell, the highest point in the Pennines.

Enjoying a secluded location along the western edge of the North Pennines, this detached barn conversion sits by a stream and provides a warm, cheerful and friendly retreat for couples discovering this breathtaking area. Offering spacious accommodation for two, the property retains plenty of quaint and characterful features including timber ceiling beams and exposed stonework as well as a cosy wood burner, large windows and a picturesque wildlife garden. Providing a tranquil romantic retreat in glorious surroundings, the cottage is ideal for exploring the Eden Valley, the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales.

Stepping into this charming single-level property, the small hallway features a bench, exposed stone walls and beams, and space for muddy boots. Heading through to the spacious and cosy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, you will find a beautiful living area with a beamed ceiling, wooden floors and stone walls. The charming lounge is a lovely spot to snuggle up in front of the wood burner, chat into the night or enjoy a movie. You can share a romantic meal in the dining area, and the traditional kitchen has a range of equipment so you can rustle up a range of favourite dishes. The cottage also offers a delightful double bedroom and an invigorating bathroom. Outside, the pretty wildlife garden provides a lovely space to sit outside in the evening and spot rabbits, red squirrels and a wide array of birds.

We stayed in Beck Cottage 7 years ago, loved it then and still love it now. So peaceful & relaxing with stunning scenery just a short walk away. Perfect for some much needed R&R, we had a lovely week

Lovely secluded cottage, in a beautiful setting. It was comfortable and cosy, with a log burner on chilly evenings. A perfect away from it all holiday location with great local walks. Had a very relaxing week, would definitely recommend this lovely cottage.

I loved my week staying at Beck Cottage. It was absolutely perfect for what I needed. It was close enough to the Lakes to get to most places in about an hour. It is also close enough to Penrith and other sites nearby. The cottage is well enough equipped to cook anything. The bedroom is comfortable and bathroom good. I loved the feel of the cottage Read moreand it reminded me of staying in French cottages on many holidays there. Ian welcomed me, which was lovely. The setting is lovely and quiet. Hide
