About & Contact

Our smallest, cutest cottage, closest to the fells

A gorgeous little cottage beside the Whillan Beck with views of the quaint 17th Century packhorse bridge and waterfall beyond.

This quaint cottage was originally a stable, then a wool shed and is now the cosy, romantic cottage that you will encounter! We are giving Whillan Beck a complete makeover in early 2018, renovating the whole downstairs area, installing a brand new kitchen and brand new bathroom upstairs, so come and be one of the first to enjoy the finished product!

'This is our 6th visit to the cottages and 50 years visiting Eskdale! Whillan Beck cottage is most delightful and comfortable. We have everything we need and more. We look forward to our next visit'.

Accommodation summary:

Ground floor: combined kitchen/diner/lounge, completely refitted in early 2018.

First floor: 1 double bedroom with king-size bed, 1 bathroom with bath and over bath shower, brand new in 2018.

Reviews for Whillan Beck Cottage at Bridge End Farm Cottages

Meet the owner

Greg Poole

Now in our 29th year of providing exclusive, luxury accommodation here at Bridge End Farm Cottages, myself, Greg, and the team at Select Cottages are assuredly well-versed in providing all our guests with a truly exceptional Lakeland experience. Having lived and brought up a family in The Farmhouse, we now often return for our own holidays, as you can see from the photos! My connections with Premier Cottages go back a long way too! As one of the founding members and original Directors I introduced the name 'Premier Cottages' and served on the Board the first 4 years with responsibility for the brochure, marketing and recruitment. I am very proud that Bridge End Farm Cottages are one of less than a dozen properties that have remained under the same ownership and have continuously advertised in Premier Cottages in all 20 years of its existence! We look forward to personally welcoming you and your family in our Lakeland paradise!
