About Ena Emmett

My husband, daughter and I have lived happily in Bell Cragg Cottage Coniston for the last 28 years. I am Librarian at John Ruskin School and my husband is a yoga teacher. We are very much involved in our small community, familiar with the local facilities, pubs (5), restaurants, cafes, walks, rides (bike + horse), boating centre etc. Beck Lodge is attached to our main property but seperate from it with its own entrance, parking etc. Beck Lodge is the closest accomodation in Coniston Village to the lake (400m). Once we have settled you in to Beck Lodge you will not hear from us unless you require any assistance/ information when we are nearby and will do our best to help you in whatever way we can.

Ena Emmett purchased this apartment in 1980

Why Ena Emmett chose Windermere & Central Lakes

We wanted to live in the heart of the Lake District and fell in love with the location of our home and its spectacular views of the Coniston mountain range and Grizedale Forest. There is no place to compare with the Lake district in the whole of the UK for its beauty and accessibility having such a wide range of landscapes in a relatively small area. Although many people visit, it is always possible to find a quiet place to enjoy away from the crowds. Beck Lodge is a ground floor apartment with good access on Lake Road and ideally positioned 5 minutes flat walk from both Coniston village centre and Coniston Water (the Lake). Beck Lodge is also the closest village accomodation to the lake and my husband often wanders down on a quiet morning/ evening for a swim.

What makes this apartment unique

A beautifully furnished modern studio apartment for two, midway between Coniston Water and the village centre.The studio is very comfortable, decorated to a high standard with all modern conveniences and is ideal for any time of the year. Located on Lake Road, the ground floor accommodation has very good access and is only five minutes flat walking distance of both the lakeshore (closest accommodation to the lake) and village centre. There is plenty to see and do within easy reach (boating centre, walks, rides, museum, 3 mini markets, 5 pubs, numerous restaurants, cafes etc.) but as Beck Lodge is on the edge of the village it is quieter when you just want to relax. Coniston Water is famous for the water speed record attempts by Sir Donald Cambell in his 'Bluebird' jet-boat - the jetty from which he set off is only 10 mins walk away. Ruskin Museum which will house the original restored Bluebird is 8min walk away. The 'Bluebird Cafe' is on the lakeshore just 5mins walk from Beck Lodge and is very popular with its beautiful views over the lake. It is possible to reach Beck Lodge using public transport. Quite often guests arriving by car park up and leave the car unused for the whole of their stay. Beck Lodge is very well placed for numerous walks to suit all levels of fitness and experience. This can be a gentle stroll to the Lake or Village, a low level lakeside walk or a longer walk into the Coniston Fells. Similarly there are numerous mountain and road bike routes in the surrounding area and bikes can be stored in our locked garage during your stay.

Quaint and cosy

  • 5 of 5

Within walking distance of the centre, it's an ideal place to base yourself. Go for a long walk, then treat yourself to some lovely food at the Yewdale pub

Can't wait to return!!
