Enjoying a tranquil position on the banks of the river eden, this spacious cottage is comfortably furnished and well maintained. Situated within 100 acres of the owners land around which visitors are free to roam, it is fronted by a garden with slide and sandpit. An excellent base for walking the eden valley, the pennine hills and the beautiful howgill fells, it is also central for the lake district and the yorkshire dales. Free fishing for one on nearby river is available in season with riding and golf course close by. Kirkby stephen just two miles away has everday shops and dining facilities. And just a few miles along a scenic route is the town of hawes with its cobbled streets and antigue shops. (hawes creamery well worth a visit) One small well behaved dog welcome ( £30 per week charge).


Home from home for families and couples

By Dave Allen on 29-Jun-2019

We had visited Blandwath Cottage previously with Grandparents and youngest Daughter and found it again when looking for accommodation for the 2 of us.
Blandswath Cottage provided us with a comfortable well equiped base for exploring the region with good roads letting us getting to where we wanted in less than an hour, we went to Morecambe, Ambleside, Penrith, Hawes, Northallerton, Richmond, Bedale and Leyburn but run out of time to visit Barnard Castle. We are keen walkers and found plenty of enjoyable walks.
While sleeping 6, Blandwath Cottage is an ideal for a couple, competitively priced for that sector, it is a home from home, at the end of the week we are normally ready to get home but we would have happily stayed on.
The owners were friendly and welcoming.
If you have spotted the dining table as somewhere to use a laptop on, l suggest you bring an extension lead if it needs plugging in.
In conclusion, we really enjoyed our holiday and are planning our return in a couple of years, there is a list of areas we want to visit hindering a quicker return. There are low beams and doorways but at 6 foot 5 I was able to avoid them as they were where you expected them to be,

Walkers Paradise

By Heather And Ted on 15-Jun-2019

Blandswath Cottage is in the perfect position for a week of walking and exploring.
High or low level, the walks have a stunning backdrop and in June a multitude of wild flowers to enjoy.
The Settle -Carlisle Railway line has a good service for trips further afield and there are local towns to explore, Appleby and Kirkby Stephen both very interesting and full of history and good amenities.
The cottage is immaculate, roomy and a very comfortable base with red squirrels to watch from the windows if you are lucky.

Kirkby Stephen Cottage Review

By John & Heather Russell on 18-May-2019

We Spent a very relaxing week at this idyllic property. The property is extremely spacious and very well appointed.
It is well situated between the M6 and A66 and is an excellent base for exploring both the north and south lakes.
The owners have finished the property to a very high standard and there are some lovely walks around the working farm towards the old railway line and along the banks of the adjacent River Eden.
We would throughly recommend the property as being very good value and a good base for exploring with good local amenities in nearby Kirkby Stephen.

Enjoyable stay

By RA on 11-May-2019

We all really enjoyed our stay at the Cottage. We found the cottage to be very well equipped, extremely comfortable, very cosy and homely. The location of the Cottage was very convenient for our days out to the Northern Lakes and Southern Lakes as well as a wonderful day driving around the Yorkshire Dales. We look forward to our next visit.

Another lovely holiday

By Barbara And Graham on 27-Apr-2019

Been to Blandswath Cottage again for our annual visit. Just as good as ever, when we leave we look forward to our next visit. The cottage is very well cared for, spacious and comfortable and the view from the front of the cottage would take some beating. The owners are very friendly helpful. Very well worth visiting.

Lovely Quiet Getaway

By Dermot on 06-Apr-2019

We were met by the friendly owner and taken through the home. In the front room we were greeted by a lovely fire and the house was warm and cosy with individually controllable heaters in each room. All the rooms were large and the house was spacious and welcoming. The property is a cottage on a no longer working Farm but the fields are let out for grazing (sheep and cattle). All the fields are accessible and there is a river running through that you can walk down to. A single fishing licence is included. To the front of the property there is a safe and secure children's area that has been fenced off and has various play equipment installed. The view from the front is lovely and across open countryside. The rear is partially wooded. Internally the property was comfortable and felt homely, it was clean and well equipped, water pressure for the shower was decent. The internet was decent although it did not extend to the rear bedroom probably because of the great thickness of the walls. Our hostess was always on hand if needed but never intrusive. It was very peaceful and quiet and we found lots to do in the area. We would definitely book again

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.

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.

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.
