    We have always been to cottages and taken our dog with us, The property owners have Always come to greet us and tell us what was what and that if we needed anything where to find them ,Little beck owners did not do this which was a little awkward when ,if we spoke to anyone not knowing if they were the owner or gardener!!! We found our holiday at little Beck very comfortable , There are just one or two little niggles that didn't make it perfect for us , ..Firstly ,as previously said the owners not introducing themselves, we couldn't loose our dog out anywhere just to stretch his legs , there was no where for us to loose him e.g (enclosed garden ) , with a working farm , there was no way we could have let him loose, so we had no chose but to take him out on a lead , ...Also the lack of up to date literature e.g maps, places to visit, ect ,everything was very out of date . also no view as such , althought once out of the flat it was beautiful .

    Great little cottage in an ideal location for all major tourist attractions, set in a quiet location with a local pub serving great food within walking distance, perfect when you can't be bothered to cook. The staff we met were extremely helpful and friendly, anything to help. A dog friendly property, they even provide a stack of towels to dry off the odd soggy dog, very helpful and a nice touch. Will definitely be going back.

    We loved staying at Little Beck! It is in the perfect location and not far from main roads for access to everywhere easily! The cottage was lovely and perfect for our needs! We had a perfect holiday :)

    The only small problem was with the apparently old electric cooke.

    Ideal location for the Northern lakes and was ideal for what we required. Close to Keswick and the Borrowdale valley also Ullswater very close by with access to the fells. The owners of the site were very friendly and helpful with local knowledge.
