“wonderful gardens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2011

Happened upon this marvellous place by chance - while waiting for our time slot to visit Hill Top Farm. Only stayed for tea in the Summer House. Will definitely consider staying here next time round. The garden is just marvellous. The atmosphere really tranquil - was very reluctant to leave. My daughter had a wonderful time taking pictures of all the varieties of flowers in the garden.

We love the Lake District and have been searching for a place to stay since we have had children - now we have found it!
We received a warm and friendly welcome and a much appreciated drink in the lovely garden on arrival. The interior is really nicely decorated and both the larger rooms have nice views over the countryside. The view from the Esthwaite suite is especially lovely - it looks towards the Lake and the Coniston and Langdale ranges of fells.
The owners, Garry and Denise are really friendly and make you feel at home from the off. They were very good with our two boys who were given lots of toys to play with during the stay. Beechmount is also opposite the village playground which we visited often.
Overall I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing break in a gorgeous part of the world. We will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: If you have children then the Esthwaite room has a separate lounge where parents can relax while lit...

We were greeted with coffee and cake which was a lovely welcome and gave a very good impression. Beautiful views of the lake from our room. We had the freedom of having the house and garden to ourselves - what a gorgeous garden and picturesque summer house! The icing on the cake has to be meeting the two westies, Jock and Paddy, who were absolutely adorable, and very well behaved! Breakfast was fine, but limited choice of cereals and no yoghurts. What was very welcome though was the thoughtful supply of bottled water kept in the fridge. Can't fault this B&B, except to say that parking is a little bit difficult, but that is only a tiny detail. An otherwise perfect stay. :)

We stayed here for a few days in June having booked on the strength of Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. Gary and Denise were wonderful caring hosts and nothing was too much trouble including washing and ironing our clothes! We stayed in the Esthwaite room which had its own cosy sitting room and a breathtaking view of the lake from both rooms. We also had the use of a lovely lounge with open fire and a garden conservatory with home made cakes and tea or coffee available. The area is stunningly beautiful with lovely walks and the village of Hawkshead with its quaint cafes and shops. Tower Bank Arms nearby was great for an evening drink with the locals and good pub food. Also try the Drunken Duck restaurant at Ambleside for a special treat! Beatrix Potters cottage a short stroll away and well worth the visit. Try also the drives over Hardknott Pass for the Roman Fort and views of Isle of Man and Kirkstone Pass for the views and pub at the top! You won't want to leave....

We stayed at the beautiful Potters Cottage for a week and it was absolutely lovely. The "cottage" is a ground floor apartment which has a separate entrance but is part of the main house. It has a lovely modern bathroom with underfloor heating - a great shower but no bath. The kitchen is well appointed with dishwasher and washing machine. The bedroom has a most comfortable bed with crisp white linen.

The hosts, Denise and Gary, are very welcoming and provided delicious cake on arrival served in the beautiful gardens. They even provided a barbecue one night which we shared with another couple, it was idyllic to sit on the terrace of the summer house eating our meal on a warms summers evening.

If staying here take care driving through the entrance gate as it is very narrow, most people did as we did and parked in the small playground car park opposite the house.

We would definitely recommend staying here and hope to return one day.

What a wonderful place. A tiny piece of paradise nestled in the small town of Hawkshead. Pristine grounds with a fab view. The house is filled with elegant furniture with 3 guest rooms. Extremely clean & tidy. Breakfast is everything one could ask for setting you up for the day.
I was apprehensive about going as I had an accident a month before wondering how I was going to get on with limited movement. My worries were over once I met proprietors Denise & Gary, they couldn't do more, treating me like one of the family. Thanks for everything. Can't wait to return.
Highly recommend this place

Despite the showers and drizzle, we loved our three day stay here. It was so peaceful and quiet - waking up every morning to the glorious view over the lake was a joy. We were surrounded by birdsong and bleating lambs. We were able to take several walks from the door of the B&B through the beautiful countryside. We stayed in the Esthwaite room which had a spacious sitting room adjacent to the bedroom. Both rooms had the gorgeous view. Having peeked into the other rooms while they were vacant, I would definitely ask for Esthwaite. One goes out into a small summer house above the gardens to get internet access since the wifi doesn't go through the thick stone walls. The wifi was quite quirky and intermittent which can be a problem if you are trying to deal with issues back home like I was. I peeked into the self catering cottages which were very well furnished with high quality kitchen appliances including dishwashers and washing machines! We would often run into Gary at the local pub or local walks and he was always so helpful and cheerful despite having a day job as principal of a primary school. Denise was very cheery and welcoming as well - giving us very welcomed complementary wine and beer after our somewhat rocky arrival. When driving from the north (Ambleside), one can't easily see the sign for Beechmount because of obscuring shrubs. We drove all the way to Far Sawrey before turning around and on the return trip from the south, we finally spotted the sign which was clear from that side. This was our first visit to the Lake District and being on the less crowded and touristy western side of Windemere lake is a big asset. Would definitely recommend Beechmount.

Room Tip: Ask for Esthwaite
