  • “We enjoyed a really lovely holiday.”

    Beech Nook is a real home from home and a great place in which to spend some quality time if the weather is rubbish.

    Beech Nook is a real home from home and a great place in which to spend some quality time if the weather is rubbish. Sykes were really helpful in getting our booking secured for us at a point where we thought we weren't going to get a break this year. So glad we booked and chose this lovely property for a much needed break away from the stresses of life these days.

The property

Surrounded by the breath-taking mountains and awe-inspiring lakes of the Lake District, lies this traditional Cumbrian cottage, Beech Nook. Beautifully appointed throughout, this charming and charismatic abode offers a fantastic setting for a relaxing countryside retreat for a family or group of seven. Braithwaite just 1.5 miles away. Following an action-packed adventure exploring the area, return to the warm embrace of this wonderful home, where you can clean off your dirty clothes in the handy utility room, before freshening up in the ground-floor shower room. Snuggle up in front of the fire and spend quality time with loved ones as you watch movies on the Smart TV, or make your way across to the kitchen to prepare a delicious evening meal for all to enjoy in the dining room. Soak up the sunshine out on the patio, or head upstairs to the first floor where you draw yourself a long bath in the family bathroom, or escape the excitement as you unwind with a book in the single bedroom. Guests staying in the master bedroom can benefit from both a king-size bed and an en-suite bath, whilst a few steps away an additional king-size and a twin offer room for the whole family. Make the most of your time in the Lake District with days spent hiking through Brandlehow Park and Whinlatter Forest Park, or hiking to the peaks of Skiddaw, Blencathra and Grisedale Pike. Visit the popular attractions of Derwent Pencil Museum, Puzzling Place and the Keswick Museum, or see the ruins of Castlerigg Stone Circle. Head out onto Derwentwater as you learn how to paddleboard, or cross on over to the National Trusted owned Derwent Island House. Meet exotic animals at the Lake District Wildlife Park, or take an alpaca for a stroll at The Lakes Distillery. Grab dinner and drinks in the neighbouring town of Keswick, or stop off in the village of Braithwaite where you can delight in a quick pint with the locals or grab fresh ingredients from the quintessential village shop. Admire the grand architecture of Cumbrian Manor of Mirehouse & Gardens, or head to Friars Crag for breath-taking views of the lake. Pass along the River Greta as you make your way along the Keswick to Threlkeld railway trail, where you will find the Threlkeld Quarry Railway and the Quarry and Mining Museum. See the cascading waters of Aira Force Waterfall and Moss Force Waterfall, or be blown away by the spectacular views of the encompassing landscapes from Surprise View. Discover the very best that the Lake District has to offer with a holiday at Beech Nook.

About the location


Keswick 3 miles.

Between the magnificent northern lakes of Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite, lies the village of Braithwaite. Still retaining much of its traditional appeal, the Coledale Beck runs through the village with whitewashed Lakeland cottages, two village shops and two real ale Inns each brimming with character! Between Braithwaite and Buttermere is the beautiful Newlands Valley, while picturesque Bassenthwaite Lake is well worth a visit. From a gentle countryside ramble to a challenging hike up Skiddaw, there really is something for everyone. Visit Mirehouse, a grand house and gardens on the shores of the lake with an open-air theatre, or take a trip around the lake. Lake District Wildlife Park, Dodd Wood, Derwentwater, and Keswick with its wide range of attractions, are also within easy reach.
