'A Corner of Eden' is to be found in Cumbria in the North West of England. Within this county are 6 districts and Eden is one.
I was lucky enough to visit 'A Corner of Eden' in September of 2013 and would say 'stay here' ! There are 3 types of accommodation and we filled them all. There was 16 of us in total and we all had a bed ... if you've ever had to book for this many people you will know how tricky it can be. And what a success 'A Corner of Eden' was for us!
The owners concentrated on being as environmentally friendly as possible during the renovation work over the years; local suppliers, naturally occurring materials, low emissions, up-cycling, re-utilising, recycling, natural products, good insulation, draught exclusion to mention but a few.
Sustainable heat in the barn and electricity throughout, sheep's wool insulation, private water supply and drainage, composting, grow your own, local produce....
It's not possible to be perfect but it is possible to try your hardest which is exactly what they do.
Every room was special .. the attention to detail, the effort to modernise but be creative and sympathetic to the era is evident everywhere. I gave it 10 out of 10 .... so did the other 15 !
