Full Description


The cottages are a listed building and have been in the owners family for over a hundred years.

Literally a stones throw from the Hadrian’s Wall Path, residents enjoy exclusive access to the famous World Heritage Site via a path passing the tarn that gives the farm its name. Here you will see wildlife in its natural habitat as well as cattle and sheep grazing in open fields.

The location offers a unique mix of complete tranquility and accessibility. Set within a small hamlet in an unspoilt and relatively undiscovered part of Cumbria, Bleatarn Park is set within acres of rolling farmland, yet is only ten minutes from the M6 and fifteen minutes from the historic border city of Carlisle.

Traditionally the gateway to Scotland, Carlisle is steeped in a rich history with its castle, cathedral and award-winning museum as well as modern and stylish shopping facilities. Ten minutes to the east is the bustling market town of Brampton, home to the beautiful Talkin Tarn Country Park. A forty five minute drive to the south will bring you to the Northern lake district with Ullswater, the second largest lake in the entire Lake district and Keswick, the main tourist centre in the North Lakes.

The cottages themselves are equipped to a very high standard, with modern kitchens and comfortable furnishings.

Walking – Bleatarn Park is an excellent base for a walking holiday. Situated literally a stones-throw from the Hadrian’s Wall path, all residents enjoy exclusive access to the route through the owners own farmland. In addition to the Lake District Fells so enjoyed by many, there are also many local trails that are suitable for both serious walkers and casual strollers – just ask for details.

Hadrian’s Wall is literally trailblazing after it was named the best in Britain. The 84-mile trail, from Wallsend in the north east to Bowness-on-Solway in Cumbria, has been voted the best walking trail in the Countryside Magazine Awards. The magazine’s editor, Fergus Collins, described it as “the perfect week-long exploration” which took visitors deep into the Roman world through “some of the most enchanting landscapes Britain has to offer”. More than 16,000 people walked the entire trail last year, taking around seven days to complete their journey. Thousands more took shorter walks around sections of the Roman landmark.
