    “Faraway Cottage is a gorgeous place ...”
    Faraway Cottage is a gorgeous place to stay, it is slightly more remote than we are used to, but still only a few miles drive from various town centers. This was a very relaxing stay for us, but far from boring! We were given the opportunity to meet some lovely little baby cows, we bumped into some deer, we went fishing on the river for a morning/afternoon, and despite not catching supper, it was a beautiful place to spend the day.

    Faraway Cottage is a gorgeous place to stay, it is slightly more remote than we are used to, but still only a few miles drive from various town centers. This was a very relaxing stay for us, but far from boring! We were given the opportunity to meet some lovely little baby cows, we bumped into some deer, we went fishing on the river for a morning/afternoon, and despite not catching supper, it was a beautiful place to spend the day. We also visited Carlisle, and made a trip to Edinburgh during our short stay too. This cottage is a perfect place to come 'home' to after you've finished exploring for the day, it is wonderfully clean, and finished to an excellent standard. If you ask us, being able to sit in front of the fire in the evening, and having a coffee in the morning overlooking the fields were our favorite parts of each day. Tony & Julie are great people too, very warm, welcoming, and helpful - Tony even took the time to guide us down to the river. We don't usually visit the same place twice, but we both enjoyed our time here so much, that we will be booking again!

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.
