Jenny’s Croft

4 guests, two ensuite bedrooms

Jenny’s Croft is located in the quiet hamlet of Glassonby situated in the middle of the Eden Valley.  Views over the rolling hills of the Eden Valley and the Pennines mountains are the main feature of Jenny’s Croft and its private entrance, gated courtyard garden equipped with sustainable plantation teak garden furniture, gravelled private parking area and outlook make the best of this.

The recent renovation of Jenny’s Croft has brought this traditional Cumbrian long house and barns back into habitation for the first time since 1764 and Jenny’s Croft retains its original features including stone walls, arched openings and terraced fields.

Jenny’s Croft has an open plan dining and reception room with a double sided cast iron log burning fire (complimentary logs, kindling and firelighters are provided).  There is a well equipped breakfasting kitchen with oak cupboards, granite counters, an American fridge freezer and a washing machine and tumble dryer.  Broadband wifi is provided as is complimentary locally sourced charcoal & equipment for the Weber BBQ.

Jenny’s Croft has been awarded 5* status by Visit England and is also a Pets Welcome and Families Welcome cottage which means we provide additional facilities, equipment and information for our guests travelling with their children and / or dogs.
