    We can highly recommend this apartment. It is very clean, tidy and very well equipped. An excellent base to explore the Lake District. The owners are very friendly without being intrusive. The appartment is decorated to a high standard, with a comfortable bed, wonderfull albeit cosy high spec bathroom and well equipped kitchen. Plus the added bonus of lovely views. A great place for a well deserved relaxing holiday in the Lake District.

    We were mightily impressed with Beech Lea. Location was amazing. It was off the road and secluded but surprisingly easy to find. Especially after such a long drive with 2 small children. The owner (Alison) gave us a wonderfully comprehensive set of instructions which definitely helped with the above. Upon arrival everything was exactly as we'd hoped. The place was clean and the kitchen well-stocked with every utensil you need to get cracking with dinner. Absolutely everything you need was there. So much so, we felt at home on arrival. The beds and bedding were really comfortable, the lounge was super-cozy. The cottage is surprisingly much bigger inside than it looks on the outside. It was cold so we didn't sit outside but the garden area was lovely too. We used the Spa facilities at the Swan Inn which were reimbursed by the owner! It was literally a one minute walk to the Aquarium (which was better than I thought it would be) and the ferry (only 40 mins to Bowness). We already want to go back and will definitely be doing so! Thanks again for such a lovely cottage.
