We stayed at Beckside Rest Lodge this week and returned home today. It is a beautiful setting right next to the Troutbeck river. The lodge is warm and cosy and had everything one would need for a self catering holiday. The best of all was the huge balcony/decking - We have 2 small dogs and they were100% safe on the balcony. There is a gate on the balcony so they couldn't escape and they couldn't fit through the railings. The location is excellent and we will definitely be returning.
