Holiday Rental House
Set in a quiet lane on the edge of this ancient village, Field Beck overlooks the great medieval Priory of Cartmel and is the sort of late Georgian house that Jane Austen might have lived in. It is a Grade II Listed building and all of its light and airy rooms have lovely views and catch the sun. The house has been lovingly restored and furnished to keep its historic character and charm. On the ground floor is: a sitting room, with wood-stove, a dining room, a breakfast room, a scullery and a kitchen which features 1950s style stainless steel units. On the first floor are 3 bedrooms: a twin and 2 doubles (1 with a washbasin), and a bathroom. Above is a large attic with twin beds and an extra TV.

Beneath the house are the original cellars, with stone flagged floors, an extra loo and a games room with mini-snooker and football tables. Field Beck is surrounded by a delightful walled garden with a pond and stream. There is also a patio that is a real sun trap – perfect for barbecues! The house will actually sleep 8 adults comfortably and there are two loos, but, as there is only one bathroom, 6 may be a more practical maximum number. We offer discounts for smaller groups and couples. Well behaved dogs are welcome. More

Interaction with guests
Field Beck is our much loved second home. We have been letting it as a holiday cottage for 30 years and many of our guests come back again and again. We do not live nearby so we will not interfere with your holiday or watch over you. However we stay in contact with you to answer any questions you may have.

Field Beck is a lovely house. It had everything we needed. It is in a great location with valuable parking. With the good weather we spent more time in the beautiful cottage garden. Would definately book again.

Thank you, Lynn, for your lovely review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed the garden. Even the gardener says he should be paying me to work there. Although that is yet to happen.

Field Beck is situated behind the Priory in Cartmel. The village has several pubs, lots of places to eat, and other shops. It is also home to one of the oldest National Hunt racecourse in the country. The house is quiet and quaint, as a...More

Wow! That's a lovely review. Thank you so much. It's quite hard work keeping the house the way it is (Jane Austen outside and Miss Marple inside) while also providing modern comforts, so I really appreciate your kind words. Come back next year.

Thank you so much, Dan, for your kind words. It's quite hard work maintaining a quirky old house like Field Beck so I really appreciate your comments. Come back for a longer stay.

Lovely cottage in the heart of Cartmel. We stayed as a family group with two small children and two dogs. All had a great time.

Field Beck really is evocative of how we would like to think of a Cartmel of 'old'; it sits proudly across from the Priory and benefits its from an unrivaled and uninterrupted view! We had a most fantastic pre-Christmas break in a cosy and well...More

About the neighbourhood
Cartmel is famous for its historic village square, its racecourse and its medieval priory as well as for its 21st century gastronomic delights. It has four good pubs which serve excellent food, and the Michelin starred L'Enclume (four times voted Britain's best restaurant) is 3 minutes walk from the house. There is a delicatessen, an artisan baker, a cheesemonger, a wine merchant, a local brewery, and a chocolatier! The village has a monthly food market and is home to the famous Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding. It is a great position for exploring the Lake District
