    • “the byre was clean and cosy and we were made most welcome with our dog.we did not find the railway a problem at all,but the close loation to the main road was a wee bit disconcerting when walking the dog early morning and evening.the pavement tends to be non existant in places.”

    • “The accommodation was fantastic, warm and comfortable. The hot tub was amazingly hot and clean, we were in it every night, even the snow didn't put us off. There was lots to see and do in the area and a very good taxi service close to hand to take us back from being in the pub. We will be going back in the summer I hope.”

    Miss Dawson, Edinburgh, November 2015

    • “The owners were a delightful couple and were very concerned that we had all our requirements met. They were also keen to give us the benefit of their knowledge of the area. The cottage was extremely comfortable and the beds were great. The surrounding countryside was beautiful and there were plenty of opportunities for long walks.”

    Ms Roland, Deeside, August 2015

    • “Loved it all, will visit again.”

    Miss Mcnally, Coventry, November 2014

    • “It was a lovely comfortable cottage and the travel around the region was good. We got to see many more places than I expected when planning the holiday.”

    Mr Jackson, Smethwick, September 2014

    • “It was a lovely cottage with extremely comfortable beds. Beautifully clean upon arrival and a good amount of space generally.”

    Mrs Trivett, Birmingham, July 2014

    • “Loved the hot tub. and the cottage was lovely. Easy access to loads of attractions. Very welcoming - felt like home.”

    Mrs Gordon, Dundee, June 2014

    • “Loved the log fire and the hot tub and how spacious the rooms were. A very relaxing time.”

    Miss Smith, Jarrow, March 2014

    • “Loved the wood burning stove and hot tub. The owner was lovely and welcoming and her knowledge of places of local interest was excellent. Cranstons in Brampton nearby was a first class butcher. His fillet steaks and duck breasts in spicy plum sauce were the best. We were very close to the hot tub and being in close proximity to Hadrian's Wall and the Lakes made it perfect place to stay.”

    Mrs Pearson, Perth, March 2014

    • “We arrived to an open fire on a cold night which was lovely, the owner gave us some local walks, shops and site-seeing information which was greatly appreciated. The cottage was clean, tidy and warm - we had a great holiday with lovely walks, with our dog, in the forest across the road.”

    Mrs Moore, Paisley, March 2014

    • “We had a great weekend, greeted on arrival, the wood burner was already on so was lovely and warm. The cottage was close to the big Talkin Tarn country park which we walked a few times, the dogs loved it. We will be back because this was an ideal location for us.”

    Ms Borthwick, Hawick, February 2014

    • “We loved the fact that even though we managed to pick one of the worst weekends for weather, we still managed to have a lovely time. The log burner in the living room was lovely, and there is a new tv which accepts usb for films. Also next to the hot tub is a little hut, with jigsaws, dvd's and a cross trainer. We will definitely be returning"”

    Miss Greenhalgh, Bolton, February 2014

    • “Everything was as advertised, the owners were friendly and the accommodation was nice and kept in good order. The hot tub was a nice touch. All in all an enjoyable experience.”

About the location


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.
