“Brilliantly equipped and perfect accommodation in great location.”
Reviewed 8 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Perfect location for great walks around lakes and up the hills. Excellent restaurants nearby plus anything else you might need. The accommodation was perfect for our family of six adults and two dogs, very well equipped, comfortable, environmentally friendly in beautiful grounds with lots of wildlife. We had a wonderful time thankyou Marna.

“Breathtaking, fabulous and relaxing spot”

Absolutely beautiful location, alongside a beck, with a view of surrounding fields.
We've stayed at Southwaite Green previously in other cottages, but this was our first time staying in Beckside.
It's my new favourite of the cottages.
Spotlessly clean, luxurious, comfortable beds, log burner in the lounge, open plan landing to bedrooms overlooking ground floor accommodation.
Site as beautiful and as peaceful as always.
Thoroughly enjoyed walking around the natural meadow, up to the pond, and the on-side barbecue. Very relaxing stay, as always.
I plan to return again next year, if not before.

“A little piece of natural paradise in the Western Lakes”
Reviewed 3 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Excellent accommodation in a wonderful setting. Natural grounds which were perfect for the whole family including the three dogs. Swimming in the spring fed pond, walking through the developing woodlands and sundowners with a view of the hills. We could not have asked for more. The cottages were spot on, the veg box and local beer much appreciated. The whole idea of a sustainable destination was very well delivered and we would certainly look to return.

“Just Perfect”
Reviewed 12 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

My husband and I with our 2 dogs took advantage of the brilliant weather to spend 5 days in the Lake District. We chose Southwaite Green because of it's excellent reviews and I can only add to them, The situation is perfect - in the quiet west lakes and conveniently close to Keswick and Cockermouth. There are excellent places to eat nearby - in particular the Kirkstile Inn at Loweswater. We stayed in Skiddaw and were really impressed with the layout of the cottage, the quality of the fixtures and fittings and the eco theme throughout which was contagious. It was incredibly cool in the very hot weather. The thoughtful extras were much appreciated - local beer, plum loaf, chocolate, a box of fresh vegetables and local newspapers.
There are 4 cottages but each is very private and quiet. Marna has put so much thought into the way the grounds are planned and there are lovely places to walk and relax, including a barbecue area. We can't recommend Southwaite Green highly enough and intend to return before the end of the year.

“Beautifully located naturally peaceful West Cumbrian Cottages”
Reviewed 11 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Nature prevails at this environmentally friendly location in West Cumbria. The modern accomodation is constructed from local materials and nicely furnished. The care with which attention has been given to detail to ensure a well balanced relaxing holiday is very impressive. The welcome crate with a selection of local produce was well received. The methods of energy conservation are technically superior and the underfloor heating system provides a warm friendly atmosphere in the cottage even on cold rainy days. Great care and attention has been given to the layout of the surroundings providing a suitable habitat for the local wild life. Delightful secluded places have been created, there is a small lake with swimming pool facilities and a simple stone bar-be-que with all equipment provided.
