Take a Well-deserved Cottage Break in Beckermet

Facts about what Beckermet offers for Self-Catering Breaks


Beckermet is a village in scenic Cumbria, close to the coast between Seascale and Egremont. It’s historically a part of Cumberland and this area is of interest to history and architecture lovers. Families enjoy the wide-open spaces, fresh air and exercise that this lovely area provides and it is the perfect place for a relaxing cottage holiday. The scenery is glorious and there is so much to see and do in Cumbria. The nearest railway station is Braystones station, a single platform station situated on the Cumbrian Coast Line.

St. John’s Church, in the centre of the village, is a fine building of unusual design. It was rebuilt between 1878 and 1879 and fragments of ancient crosses can be seen. Also of note, are the many medieval coffin lids of carved stone. At nearby Calder Bridge, about a mile from Beckermet, is St. Bridget’s Church, dating back to 1842. It’s thought that the original site was the location of a 7th century monastery. This church only runs services around three times during the year. St. Bridget’s is noteworthy for its pre-Norman cross shafts and Pre-Raphaelite windows. A short distance from Beckermet is the beautiful Ponsonby Church, which also has Pre-Raphaelite windows, including some by the renowned artist, Sir Edward Burne-Jones.

Calder Abbey’s ruins lie next to the River Calder, just to the north of Calder Bridge and are well worth a visit. When visiting the monastery ruins, you can also pay a visit to Calder Abbey House. This is a house mostly dating back to the 1800s and some remains of the abbey can be seen there. South of Calder Bridge is Sella Park, a restored house from the 1600s with a peel tower (fortified tower) from the 1300s.
Pelham House, built in 1774, is a Grade II listed building, now used for offices.

Monk’s Bridge (also known as Matty Benn’s Bridge), on Cold Fell, is the oldest packhorse bridge in Cumbria. It was constructed for the use of the monks at Calder Abbey. It’s possible to park a car just half a mile away and then proceed on foot to the bridge.

Just a few miles from Beckermet, the market town of Egremont has a number of attractions including Egremont Castle (winner of a Green Heritage Site award), the Florence Mine Heritage Centre (the last working iron ore mine in Europe) and Lowes Court Gallery, which showcases local artists.

Beckermet and the surrounding area make a good base for discovering this part of Cumbria, where a peaceful and rewarding self-catering cottage break is assured.
