Another lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoy our visits to Blandswath Cottage, we've been each year since 2002. If you are looking for a week of rural life, this is the place to be. The cottage is spacious, cosy, well equipped and very clean and the owners are very welcoming. Blandswath is ideally situated for the Lakes, Swaledale, Wensleydale and Teesdale and the picturesque Eden valley itself. Ideal walking, cycling and sightseeing country.

The Best Birthday Ever

  • 4 of 5

Six family members stayed at Blandswath Cottage for my mum's 80th Birthday. The cottage was located in exquisite countryside with super views and walking routes right from our doorstep and the town of Kirkby Stephen a five minute drive away. Try the Acoustic Tea Rooms for some super musical evening entertainment. The cottage was immensely spacious yet cosy with a fully equipped kitchen. Mum said it was the best Birthday she'd ever had. We all agreed it was an ideal place to spend at least a week and we'll certainly be back.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The end of two super weeks. After 30 years or more of coming to this cottage each year we never tire of what Cumbria- especially the Eden Valley - has to offer.

A great place to stay - peaceful, well set up, with very hospitable hosts. we shall return. Many thanks.

Our 10th year at Blandswath Cottage and we enjoyed it as much as ever, will be back next year.
