Who are we to argue with The Telegraph? They've mentioned Newlands Beck Cottage in their article of Britain's more remote cottages...though with an Award Winning Pub just a ten minute walk away, you don't need to get into too much of a panic! You can read their article here. Personally, we think it could have equally won a place on a page for 'that romantic place for four.'..or then again maybe just keep for two?

We love the fabulous full wall map, perfect for planning your next walk and of course it goes without saying that we rather like the free-standing bath in the master bedroom too!

There are walks literally from your front door and as the Owners own half of the beck its also fine to fish too, just check that you have the appropriate licence.
