    “A gorgeous cottage in a fantastic location!”

    We really loved our 3 night stay at Solport View! The cottage has been done to the highest standard and has everything you could want. Hadrian’s wall is just metres away, meaning we could explore right from the door. There are also some fantastic walks just a short drive away, such as Talkin Fell which we very much enjoyed (the views are worth the climb), then when back at the cottage you can cosey up infront of the wood burner and enjoy some treats from the complimentary hamper.

    We really loved our 3 night stay at Solport View! The cottage has been done to the highest standard and has everything you could want.

There are also some fantastic walks just a short drive away, such as Talkin Fell which we very much enjoyed (the views are worth the climb), then when back at the cottage you can cosey up infront of the wood burner and enjoy some treats from the complimentary hamper. We highly recommend the Hidden River Cafe if you are looking for somewhere for food, it is about a 20 minute drive away but well worth it. As we stayed before most places were open properly, we were limited on choice for evening meals but would definitely return to the river cafe. The view from the cottage is stunning, especially first thing in the morning. We would definitely love to return in better weather when we could enjoy the garden too. The bed is SO comfy and it is so peaceful, we slept like logs which is very rare when we are away. Cannot recommend this gorgeous cottage enough, we can’t wait to return!

The property

Brampton 3.9 miles.

Lying in the picturesque hamlet of Banks, which rests on the course of Hadrian's Wall, is this single-storey mid-terrace cottage, Solport View Cottage.

Just a stone's throw from Brampton in northern Cumbria, Solport View Cottage is the perfect base for discovering the wealth of attractions that Hadrian’s Wall offers: Birdoswald (3 miles), Wall town Crags (7 miles),Cawfields Quarry (11 miles) and the famous Sycamore Gap near Steel Rigg (13 miles) .

Further afield the North Pennines AONB, the Solway Coast AONB and the Scottish Borders are all within exploring distance.

With its panoramic views the cottage is also perfect for sitting back and re-charging the batteries.

Be welcomed into this homely setting via the front door and straight into the sitting room; find two sofas to relax on in front of the Smart TV with a wood burning stove set in the fireplace to keep you warm on a cool evening.

Discover the kitchen/diner to hold all you need for cooking up delicious meals, with a classic Smeg fridge/freezer to hold all your ingredients and essentials, a Nespresso coffee machine for the perfect start to your day, and an electric double oven at your fingertips too, so you can prepare a favourite dish before sitting around the dining table and toasting to a wonderful break.

Freshen up in the sparkling bathroom, home to a roll-top bath for a relaxing soak, as well as a walk-in shower.

Settle down for the evening in one of the two double bedrooms, both decorated with harmonious colour schemes and boasting plenty of storage for your things, not to mention the beautiful views of the surrounding countryside from the windows.

Wake up to breakfast alfresco in the garden area to the rear of the property, with a retractable awning for shade in the warmer, sunnier months, and a lovely lawn space for your canine companion to play on.

The village of Banks rests on the famous and ancient course of Hadrian's Wall, with this incredible route being right outside Solport View Cottage’s front door, you can embark on a well-travelled route following the footsteps of the Romans and many after that, encountering historical monuments along the way including bridges, turrets and even signal towers that still lie there today.

Part of the remains are 100 metres up the road.

A mile down the road Lanercost Priory sits in the village of Lanercost, the Priory was built in the 12th Century and was believed to be where Elizabeth I was crowned Queen of England.

The nearest amenities for your stay can be found in the town of Brampton, around four-miles from Banks, where you can expect to find everything you need for your self-catered stay including shops, pubs, takeaways and restaurants, with the town home to a rich history dating back to Roman times as well as Border Reivers from the Borders region and the Jacobite uprisings.

Spend a day visiting the beautiful Talkin Tarn Country Park for leisurely strolls around the glacial lake as well as fishing here and watersports activities too.

The Solway Aviation Museum lies just outside of Brampton and is great for any Aviation enthusiasts.

A day trip to Carlisle holds plenty of things to do including visiting Carlisle Castle and Carlisle Cathedral, whilst a fine selection of restaurants and bistros can be found here too.

For Families visiting the cottage, Walby Farm Park, Tullie House Museum and Bitt’s Park are perfect to keep younger guests entertained.

Walkers can delight in having the choice of two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty to visit, both the North Pennines and the Solway Coast, while the Scottish Borders and Gretna Green are well-worth visiting too.

Make the most of the incredible surroundings at Solport View Cottage in Cumbria. .

About the location

BRAMPTON, CUMBRIA

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.
