Beckside…Stunning mountain side cafe and exclusive accommodation in the heart of the Lake District 


Set against the tranquil eastern shore of Ullswater,  Beckside is a traditional working hill farm with over two hundred acres of fields and woods and one mile of lakeshore.  

You can enjoy the beauty, tranquillity and wildlife of this region by staying in the stunningly situated lakeside cabins, or in one of two comfortable double rooms to be found in the Lowther Barn tea room.

We are delighted to be  Country Walking Magazine’s top pick for tea in May 2016!  Read their review here.

We will be closing for winter on 12th November 2017 and reopening for the new season in February. (please contact us via email for opening times between February and Easter)
