About the property

E15875 Milecastle

Bleatarn Park offers a choice of one and two bedroom self catering cottages, housed within a former barn. Carefully restored and converted, the barn stands within its own grounds and is 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 property its name. Here you will see wildlife in its natural habitat as well as cattle and sheep grazing in open fields. A short drive away is 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. A forty five minute drive to the south will bring you to the Northern lake district to Ullswater 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.

About Anne Jordan

I am a married mother of two teenage daughters, enjoying the country life with our array of pets [pony, sheep, dog, cats]. I look forward to welcoming you!

Anne Jordan purchased this cottage in 1949

Why Anne Jordan chose Carlisle

Bleatarn Park has been in family ownership for over a hundred years.

Formerly a redundant barn, its has been our dream to renovate and convert this beautiful building into holiday cottages for many years - a dream which we turned into reality in 2011.

Bleatarn's peaceful location is a haven for nature lovers and we made the original farmhouse [adjacent] our own home nearly 20 years ago.

What we love about the location is that despite the fact it is so peaceful, it is far from remote. A fifteen minute drive will bring you right into the city centre of Carlisle

What makes this cottage unique

The property's location is absolutely unique - if you want to be close to Hadrians Wall, you wont get any closer than this! We are literally a stones-throw from the line of the wall and the now world famous pathway that stretches its entire length.

Residents enjoy exclusive access to the wall path, via a private pathway

Smart and well appointed new apartments not far from Carlisle or the Wall.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely quiet stay in October with our two girls. The apartment was smart and well appointed with a little of everything we needed and a generous welcome pack. Our only issue was that the bed was a touch hard to our tastes and had a foot to it which made fitting in my freakishly lanky husband a little difficult but otherwise the place was lovely!

Owner's Response: Hi Lucy, thank you for your review. Sorry to hear about the mattress issue however we took advice from several other self catering establishments and all said we should have a hard mattress! We take on board about the bed end too and maybe when we come to replace any of them we can put some in without an end! Anyway we hope this didn't spoil your stay with us.

Very comfortable flat next to Carlisle

  • 5 of 5

We have spent 3 delightful days in that very comfortable, immaculate, light and well equipped flat, ideally located near Hadrian's wall.

The kitchen is modern with everything we needed. Fantastic bathroom - super shower ! The flat is tastefully decorated (nothing cheap as in other places!)

The owner is very helpful and sorted out our issues with the internet. We will definitely come back whenever we stop near Carlisle again!

L'appartement idéal pour visiter les différents sites du mur d'Hadrien. Très propre et lumineux, très bien équipé, avec de beaux matériaux. Cinq étoiles pour la salle de bains et l'accueil de la propriétaire! Nous reviendrons sans aucune hésitation!
