About the property

Brampton 12 miles.

Built in 1909, New House commands an impressive position with stunning views across rolling farmland towards Scotland.

This charming cottage has been extended to create a welcoming, peaceful, rural retreat, ideal for a group of friends or a large family gathering.

Comfortably furnished throughout, the cottage incorporates many original features with the rooms at the front housing a sitting room with inglenook fireplace and warming woodburner, and a separate formal dining room, perfect for a celebration dinner.

The dining room leads to a spacious open plan area with well-equipped kitchen, island unit, comfy sofas, multi-fuel stove and large family breakfast area, offering a great social space where the whole party can congregate together, some warming their toes by the fire whilst the nominated chef prepares a culinary delight for the evening ahead.

On the first floor, five comfortable bedrooms, two with en-suite facilities, provide flexible sleeping arrangements.

Set in a large, beautifully tended garden, there's plenty of space around this holiday cottage for the whole family to enjoy; take a seat on the patio and take in the lovely views over The Flatt, Blackpool Gate and the Scottish Borders.

Locally, explore the ruins of Bewcastle and St Cuthbert’s Church with the 7th century Bewcastle Cross, or simply don your wellies, call the dogs and stride out from the doorstep to discover the wealth of footpaths interweaving the rich surrounding pastureland.

A little further afield, why not spend the day exploring Kielder Forest, take a trip to Carlisle, discover the beautiful Solway Coast or enjoy a visit to Hadrian's Wall?

Perhaps head north, visiting the Dumfries & Galloway coastline, or the famous Scottish Borders with all their Border Reiver history?

Or to go south, the Lake District and Northern Lakes are reachable within the hour, enabling you to walk some Lakeland Fells.

There are many attractions to choose from, from fascinating historic sites to interesting towns and forest parks.

The perfect destination for that long-awaited family get together.

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.
