  • "The property was lovely except for a bit of damp in the bathroom, the location was a bit remote but ideal for a peaceful relaxing holiday and the owner was on hand to help if needed but not intrusive."

    I would definitely return if I can.

  • "This comment is about safety entering the cottage so this comment is more about the inaccuracy of Sykes Cottages description than anything to do with the owners, In Sykes description re the cottage all that was said was there are two steps up to the entry into the cottage."

    So Sykes were not accurate on that point as they really should have said this cottage is really not suitable for the elderly or disabled. I am nearly 77 and awaiting a new hip and my husband 75 slight cripple due to a spine operation. He managed up and down not too badly but I had quite a struggle entering and leaving the property. There should have been a handrail if it was considered suitable for less able folk - not the owners fault but Sykes fault for not stating clearly that this property is unsafe for elderly or infirm. Equally dangerous going down as you stepped from step straight on to cobbles - no problem for young fit people. The cottage was spotless, beautiful and absolutely peaceful and the owners were lovely but I strongly recommend that you (Sykes) amend your description from please note there are two steps up to the property to maybe - THIS PROPERTY IS NOT SUITABLE FOR DISABLED OR ELDERLY. Thank you and I will be checking that this amendment is made or my husband and I will probably be uncertain as to whether to go with Sykes again which we always have done for many years past.

    Excellent location for the North Lakes, Scotland and Northumberland. Huge house and so spacious for the 4 of us. Julie was friendly and is on hand to help with any queries. When the evenings got a little chilly, we made the most of the lovely log burner. Make sure you visit Gelt Woods if you can. We would certainly stay again : )

Brampton 9.1 miles.

Allergarth Barn is a stylish barn conversion resting in the peaceful village of Roweltown, Cumbria.

Ideal for two couples or a small family, this charming dwelling offers a toasty woodburning stove for the cooler months and a delightful garden for enjoying the warmer months in.

On arrival at the barn, step into the farmhouse-style cooking and allow the chef of the group to cook up a storm for you to enjoy at the dining table while you plan your holiday adventures.

From here, make your way into the sitting room to settle in for the evening with a film on the TV and your loved ones snuggled up close by.

When sleep calls, head to the bedrooms to rest your eyes before another action-packed day; each bedroom has been decorated with a light and airy feel and you will find a king-size, a double and a single which is ideal for a younger guest.

Outside, enjoy a glass of wine at the garden table while you wait for dinner to be served al fresco.

About the location


Carlisle 10 miles.

The market town of Brampton is the ideal base for exploring Hadrian’s Wall. The town boasts a rich and colourful history going back to the Roman occupation, Border reivers from Scotland and the Jacobite uprisings, plus bonnie Prince Charlie established his headquarters in one of the old buildings in Brampton. In the centre of the town is Moot Hall, which was built in 1817, and now houses the Tourist Information Centre, and there is a large motte to the east of the town, which is 135 feet high and has the statue of the 7th Earl of Carlisle on it. A few miles outside Brampton is Talkin Tarn Country Park. It covers 120 acres of farmland and woodland, 65 of which make up the Tarn, a 10,000 year old glacial lake, fed by underwater springs. Two miles away is Gelt Woods, which is an ancient woodland and RSPB nature reserve and has the River Gelt running through it. Brampton is a wonderful base for exploring this historic and scenic area.

Please Note: Although this property is ground floor, there are two steps up to each entrance of the property and two internal steps in to the sitting room and one down in to the bathroom.

Please note: Two well-behaved dogs welcome - any additional pets would need to be requested and this is not guaranteed.
