We have just returned home after a two week stay at Beckthwaite and miss the stunning scenery, peace and views already. We were welcomed by Peter Dixon as we arrived and I very soon discovered he and I shared a long service history with the Fire Service, felt at home in a heartbeat. Peter and Margaret are lovely people and the site is beautifully maintained, Indeed Peter builds his own dry stone boundary walls. The site, as other reviews have indicated, is ideally located for Coniston Village with its own private foot bridge across the beck and private road up into the village. All the attractions associated with the Lake District are within easy reach and, if you have four wheels and the bottle, I would encourage you to take the Hardknott Pass to the Eskdale & Ravenglass Railway, it's exhillirating to say the least. I could go on and on about this gem of a CL but, I'm sure you can pick up on my enthusiasm, needless to say we can't wait for a return visit.
