Conveniently located just a few minutes’ walk from the vibrant town centre of Cockermouth and within easy reach of the Lake District Fells and the West Cumbrian Coast.
Beck House gets its name from the stream that runs adjacent to the property and offers the perfect base for your Cumbrian adventure.
