Beckside Studio

Patterdale, Ullswater/around

Ref: 6023

  • Sleeps: 4
  • Changeover: Friday


Dating back to 1880 this former farm worker's cottage later became a photographer's studio and has been lovingly restored with 21st century comforts in mind. It offers picturesque holiday accommodation in one of the most beautiful Lake District valleys - Lake Ullswater is just over a mile away for lake cruises and boat hire.

The fine walking around the surrounding high fells includes Helvellyn, St. Sunday Crag and the High Street Ridge and there are numerous valley rambles in the immediate area. Patterdale village has a well stocked local shop and a pub for bar meals etc.

Accommodation: The cottage stands in its own enclosed garden bounded beyond the wall on one side by the tumbling waters of Deepdale Beck and with views to the hills around. The split-level interior has its entrance into the dining kitchen with hanging space for your outdoor gear. Several steps lead up from the kitchen to the comfortable beamed sitting room with pitched ceiling and feature stone wall, (TV with Satellite Freeview, DVD, free wi-fi and radio/cassette). French window to outside steps.

There are two bedrooms - a twin on the lower floor reached down a few steps and with an adjacent bathroom (bath with hand-held shower, basin and wc), and a master double en-suite, on the same level as the kitchen with a few narrow steps down to its bathroom (large shower, basin and wc). French window out to little bedroom patio.

The cottage is cosy in all seasons with a real eye for detail, attractively furnished with carefully chosen colours and fabrics. Slate floor in the kitchen, tiled bathrooms and fitted carpets elsewhere.

Outside: Ample parking in the gravelled drive. Large patio area with garden seating and fine views of the Hartsop Fells.  Patterdale village approx 1 mile, and approx 1.5 miles to Ullswater lake.
