Guest access

Guests have access to a sitting room with wood burner which leads through to a conservatory - a window on the world of the lake, mountains and wildlife. Star gazing at night is amazing! A large garden has several separate seating areas to allow guests their own secret space. Lie on the sofas - or the lawn in summer - and look up.....

Interaction with guests

Interaction with guests is as little or as much as is desired. Peace and privacy are cherished. Sharing knowledge of the local area and suggested itineraries as required. Guests eat together in a large old converted Pantry. Special evening dinners can be provided in the private dining room by arrangement. Sometimes the guests dine together and a house party develops.

Other things to note

Residential courses in Art, Creative Writing, Personal Development, Yoga and Meditation, and Singing take place in the summer. At these times Bed & Breakfast availability is restricted.

We have other bedrooms if more than two guests want to book.

Our water supply is from the surrounding mountains and we have our own water purification system. In the Summer of 2014 our vegetable garden was reinstated!

A beautiful, secluded inn in an untouched area of the Lake District. We loved our stay and hope to visit again.

Beckfoot farm at Ennerdale water is spectacularly situated near the lakeshore and looks out onto the valley and crags of this part of the Lakes District. It is beautiful, and Nina is a very thoughtful and helpful host. Her dog is very friendly too!

Located in Ennerdale, away from the busier and more tourist-y western lakes. A perfect spot to escape and get away. Very secluded, no wifi, no phone signal, so not for those who like to stay connected. Beautiful views and walks around Ennerdale. Nina is a charming and friendly host who went out of her way to make us feel welcome. Breakfast is excellent, the bircher muesli to die for! This is our second stay with Nina and I'm sure we will book another, it's our favourite base for exploring the lakes.

Super location and lovely old house - so peaceful and off the beaten track. Very friendly and chatty hostess. Breakfast was very good. I loved the Bircher Muesli and my husband enjoyed his full cooked breakfast.

If you love unspoiled nature, incredible views, a good breakfast and a very good night sleep - this is your place! Nina is the perfect host and a great cook. Our room had the most fantastic view over the lake. Nina's place is walking distance to the lake and a little stroll to the village. What you wont find here are boat tours, tons of tourists and ice-cream vans. Hurray!

Beautiful home in a stunning location. Nina made us feel very much at home in her amazing farm house and was extremely helpful in providing information and recommendations for planning our trip. The location is perfect, well out of the way of the crowds, right next to Ennerdale Water with some amazing walks right on the doorstep. The room was very clean with a beautiful view onto the lake and well stocked with tea and coffee. Every day Nina cooked a delicious and generous breakfast. We will definitely be back!
