    Beautiful little cottage. The weather was poor while we were there and I had a bad cold but the house was warm and the bed was huge and very comfortable. The cottage is quite isolated, which is fine when the weather is good, but, no fault of the owners - the weather was Baltic when we came. Therefore, there were limited options. We managed a walk in the morning and there's a lovely pub to walk to. Overall, a lovely stay.

    We had a lovely mid week break at the small apartment/cottage. We stayed during a cold spell, just after the February snow and found the rooms to be nice and warm. The heating came on in the morning and again late afternoon. The cottage was nice and cosy, with everything you would need for a self catering stay. We found the beds hard mattress to be really comfy and had a great nights sleep. It was nice and quiet with us stopping out of season and our dog enjoyed having a good run about the place. The staff were exceptionally friendly and made us feel very welcome. Big thank you to Amanda, who was lovely and for returning our IPad!

    I really enjoyed my time in Little Beck. The cottage was all I had hoped for and had everything that I needed for a really enjoyable holiday, and it is set in a wonderfully scenic setting.

    Lovely apartment, very cosy and felt quite spacious, only issue was the bed felt quite hard could have been more comfortable but overall a really nice peaceful place to stay with amazing views

    This is a fantastic holiday home in a beautiful location. Our favourite place to stay in the Lake District. It has everything.

    Lovely little cottage. It’s location is perfect for the North Lakes. It’s part of a campsite so we had not anticipated being “surrounded” by caravans and campers but we enjoyed our stay nonetheless. The site itself is very well maintained including the shared garden near the cottage which is verily pleasant. The cottage itself is very comfortable, great night’s sleep in the comfy bed. The family business that runs the site do a fantastic job, great welcome and genuinely care that things are just right.

    Excellent well equipped cottage perfectly located in the Northern Lakes. Would definitely recommend. Only 'suprise' was that the dog friendly garden wasn't attached to the cottage and was shared - should have been clearer on website as would have put me off booking if known in advance ... however the reality was it was just a few steps away from the door and I had it to myself anyway so was no issue at all.

    Hi. We`ve stayed here before, and when we returned this year it was a bit like coming back home. I absolutely love this place. It`s a bit out of the way, but so what. More than likely we`ll be back next year. I can`t wait .

    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.
