Ullswater Way Cottages
Ullswater Way Cottages
We’re situated next to the Ullswater Way in the quiet hamlet of Bennethead, Watermillock which has stunning views over Ullswater to the mountains beyond. We have two lovely self catering cottages which can be rented separately or together. On-site parking is available for both properties.
Sleeps 6 + optional cot
Julie’s Cottage was originally a farm cottage that now forms flexible and spacious self-catering accommodation in a traditional Lakeland stone building. It is perfect for a family or for two couples. It sleeps up to six people in the three bedrooms; a super king size double, a triple with a second super king size bed and a single. A baby’s cot is available in addition.
Living accommodation includes a large lounge with wood-burning stove and comfortable leather sofas, and a separate dining room. The well-equipped kitchen is a feature of the property. It includes granite worktops, a range, Belfast sink and good range of units. There is also a dining area with table and six chairs. Heating is provided through thermostatically controlled electric radiators, and the very effective wood-burning stove in the lounge. Mobile reception is erratic and varies around the property. However, there is good fibre broadband and free wi-fi so wi-fi calling apps and messaging may be used readily.
Beck House Barn
Sleeps 2 + optional cot
Beck House Barn is a traditional Lakeland stone barn situated next door to Julie’s Cottage in the hamlet of Bennethead. It has been sensitively converted into bright and spacious accommodation, perfect for a couple, retaining a number of original features such as the oak beam across the double height living room, and the stone-arched main entrance, now fully glazed. In addition, it benefits from a large, full height window overlooking the garden, oak flooring throughout the living room, and farmhouse-style latched oak doors internally throughout. The bedroom, with its super king size bed, and the ensuite shower room occupy what used to be the hayloft.
Living accommodation comprises a bright, open plan living area with wood-burning stove, comfortable leather sofa, a dining area with table and chairs, and an oak staircase leading to a galleried landing and the en suite bedroom. The kitchen is roomy and well-equipped. It includes granite worktops, Belfast sink, modern appliances and a range of floor and wall units. The conversion included insulation to modern standards, making the barn warm and cosy even in the depths of winter. Heating is provided by oil-fired central heating, controlled both by a thermostat in the living room, and by individual thermostatic valves on each radiator. In addition, there is a very effective wood-burning stove in the living room which can often be enough by itself. Mobile reception is erratic and varies around the property. However, there is good fibre broadband and free wi-fi so wi-fi calling apps and messaging may be used readily.
