Just spent 4 nights/5 days at Bleng Barn Cottage with my husband, daughter and friends of ours – together with our 2 dogs.
Lovely welcome from Isabelle (the farmer) who showed us around the property and informed us that she would be on hand next door should we require anything.
Lovely 3 bedroom cottage with 2 bathrooms set on a working farm in a beautiful location. Although there were four adults, two teenagers and two dogs, the cottage never seemed overcrowded. The kitchen is fully equipped with all mod cons, including separate hob/oven, dishwasher, microwave and fridge freezer. Also in the downstairs shower room there was a washing machine/tumble dryer for the use of guests. The cottage also has sky television and access to free wifi.
The farm is set in 250 acres+ of woodland with some beautiful walks and approx 10-15 minutes walk into the village of Gosforth for shops, pubs etc. A great location also for Wastwater Lake, Eskdale Valley and the coast.
We were fortunate to be staying at the cottage during lambing season and were also delighted to see the arrival of the new foal which was born in the field adjacent to the patio area. Just before our arrival, the farm was also busy with the arrival of calves and a litter of puppies; which we could quite gladly have adopted and taken home!
We found the cottage to be very comfortable and homely and situated in a beautiful location. We are already planning our next trip to this beautiful part of the Lake District and would recommend Bleng Barn Cottage to family and friends.
