Brampton 2 miles; Hadrian's Wall 2 miles; Carlisle 11 miles.
The small rural village of Milton is ideally placed for exploring northern Cumbria, including not-to-be-missed Hadrian's Wall, the lovely coastline of the Solway Firth and the dramatic northern Lake District National Park. The nearby market town of Brampton has a rich and colourful history going back to the Roman occupation, Border raiders from Scotland and the Jacobite uprisings. Bonnie Prince Charlie established his headquarters in one of the old buildings in Brampton, which is now a shop. A few miles outside Brampton is Talkin Tarn Country Park. It covers 180 acres, 65 of which make up the Tarn, a 10,000 year old glacial lake, fed by underwater springs. Further south is Gelt Woods which is an ancient woodland with the River Gelt running through. A superb base for exploring this historic and scenically beautiful area.

We liked having a deck to sit on outside and also having a conservatory to sit in inside.

The owner of the property was very pleasant and welcoming. Cosy cottage which was ideal for our relaxing break away. I would recommend this cottage - we will be returning!

The owners were very friendly and helpful. The area itself was beautiful and there were lots of places to enjoy the local scenery and go walking. An all round lovely cottage retreat which certainly made mine and my partner's Christmas memorable!
