    “Amazing”

    Had such a lovely time here from being a townie to coming into the country for some peace and quiet. Feeding the calfs is just 1 of the amazing benefits of this place, it's beautiful, quiet and in the not too far from Scotland and the Lake District. I would 100% recommend this place for anyone just wanting that time away for something different.

The owners are lovely very welcoming and happy to talk to you and help in anyway with your stay. We wish them all the best with their new business venture and hoping to visit again soon.

The property

A charming, recently refurbished sandstone cottage set on a working dairy farm near the market town of Brampton in Cumbria.

On the farm there are 20 acres of private ancient woodland, perfect for exploring, bird watching, photography and other activities.

There is also 3/4 of a mile of river running through the farm, with associated fishing rights for your enjoyment.

Step into the cottage and be welcomed into the delightful, cosy, living dining room, with exposed wooden beams and stone walls along with comfy seating, and a traditional woodburning stove; what better place to sit and relax?

The original flagstone flooring takes you to the kitchen which has all the mod cons.

However, you may find yourself eschewing the integrated dishwasher in order to watch the calves frolicking in the field whilst you wash up!

The beautifully decorated king-size bedroom is cosy and restful, with double doors to the garden.

Faraway cottage comes with an extensive private gravelled area, with table and chairs overlooking the open farmland, the perfect spot to enjoy the views, and appreciate the tranquillity.

The cottage is in a fantastic secluded location.

However, the nearby market town of Brampton is a short drive away, and offers great history as well as an array of cafes, pubs and independent shops for you to enjoy at your leisure.

With spectacular scenery on the doorstep, the historic City of Carlisle only ten miles away, and the Lake District an easy drive, you are well placed for an interesting and varied holiday.

The cottage offers a fantastic country escape, faraway from life's hustle and bustle.

About the location

KIRKLINTON

Brampton 7 miles; Carlisle 10 miles

On the Sustrans Border Reivers Cycle route, Kirklinton offers great cycling opportunities. Close by Kirklinton Hall & Gardens offers fun, food, fairies- and pigs! Events are regularly held here including a superb open air opera. In the centre of the nearby market town of Brampton is the octagonal Moot Hall built in 1817 which now houses the Tourist Information Centre. Brampton has a varied selection of coffee shops, restaurants, pubs and shops to enjoy. Nearby Talkin Tarn is a glacial lake which has something for everyone, great walks and a wonderful array of watersports. The English Heritage site of Lanercost Priory is worth a visit, along with their welcoming tearoom. The historic city of Carlisle is only ten miles away, a popular destination with a castle, cathedral, fantastic shopping opportunities, and plenty of pubs and restaurants to choose from. Hadrian’s Wall is a short drive away. This World Heritage Site is the most important monument built by the Romans in Britain. Birdoswald Roman Fort is one of the main forts on Hadrian’s Wall. Just over the border into Scotland (a distance of only ten miles) is Gretna Green where you’ll find Gretna Gateway Outlet Village, and of course plenty of wedding venues! The Lake District is also within easy reach, with Lake Ullswater being less than an hour away by car.
