Beckstones Farm Guest House

  • Magnificent mountain views
  • Walks from the door
  • Ample parking
Nestling beneath the forest and looking out over green fields to the magnificent mountain scenery of Skiddaw and the Helvellyn range, Beckstones is a Georgian farmhouse peacefully situated off the beaten track and within a short stroll of Bassenthwaite Lake. We have ample parking spaces and safe cycle storage. Beckstones offers friendly, relaxed B&B accommodation with a guest TV lounge and beamed dining room where we serve a hearty breakfast.

Three of our four rooms look over the garden to the mountain scenery.
Good food is available in Braithwaite, a 5 minute drive away and the bustling tourist town of Keswick with its Theatre by the Lake, leisure amenities, attractions and many eating places is a 10 minute drive. Pets.
Thornthwaite is an excellent base for walking and touring and the X5 bus stops at the bottom of the drive.

2 Self Catered Apartments: There are 2 beautifully converted apartments in a converted barn on the farm which sleep either 2 or from 2 to 6 people

    Just come across this note from last July. I am Lea Hasson’s son and was living at Beckstones in 1968. I would be willing to fill you in on details about her and Mark if you get in touch

    Hello, On July 9th, 1968 while stationed in the US Air Force my recently married wife and I took a trip from England to Scotland and Whales. Next year we will be celebrating our 50th. I poked through out old keepsakes and found that we stayed at Beckstones Farm in room 5 . Room cost was 2.10.0 and dinner for 2 was 1 pound. The receipt was signed by Mrs. L Hasson. I can scan and send original receipt — anyway , hoping you are still in business and is Mrs. Hasson still with the establishment? We have not firmed up any dates yet for next year but sure would find it exciting to retrace back all those years. I guess I need to ask — is this the same place we stayed in 1969?
