Beckfoot Retreat is a Georgian farmhouse, which nestles below Great Borne by Ennerdale Water. It was a
working farm over 100 years ago and the original dairy now serves as the dining room for guests. The
house is owned by the National Trust and tenant Nina recently returned to the Lake District after many years
as a Film and Digital Producer.
