About the property

Fortress Cottage

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 & North Cumbria

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

Very clean, modern and well equipped & presented barn conversion. Perfect for a relaxing stay.

  • 5 of 5

Anne (owner) could not do enough and was readily available whenever I had a question about the area (looking for a new home) and I'm already looking forward to returning to her establishment in the not too distant future. Highly recommended to single stayers like myself, small families and those with four paws too.

Lovely Stay and amazing hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We both absolutely loved our stay! Unfortunately the weather was terrible, but it didn't affect our stay one bit! We had everything we needed in 'Fortress'. We will definitely be coming back next year and recommending to friends and family.

Thank you all :)
