Welcome Cottages

Lakeside, seaside, countryside, hillside…wherever you can picture your perfect cottage, you’ll find it with Welcome Cottages!


Spacious 200 year old property with peaceful gardens and stream running adjacent. Close to the harbour town of Whitehaven. Beach just 1.5 miles.

Ideal for Western Lakes

Tucked away in a peaceful lane at the edge of the village, these sympathetically converted cottages provide welcoming holiday accommodation of a very good standard. Barn Owl Cottage (ref W41964), adjoining the owners’ home, is part of a converted barn and features a fully glazed barn entrance facing south to catch the sun, while the 200 year old detached Old Forge (ref W40295) and first floor apartment Willow Barn (ref W43032) both retain character features. The properties are situated in the picturesque village of Beckermet, close to Whitehaven with its historic harbour, marina and shops, which has twice been named as a Brita resort, and St Bees with its expanse of sandy beaches. This is an ideal situation from which to explore the wonderful Western Fells of the Lake District National Park and the Cumbrian coastline. Ennerdale Water and Wastwater near to Scafell Pike are within easy driving distance. For a superb day out Muncaster Castle also has beautiful gardens and an internationally renowned Owl Sanctuary, not to mention the amazing views from its elevated position. Shop and pubs 0.25 miles, beach 1.5 miles.
