The property

Brampton 2.3 miles.

Occupying a prime position in a contemporary conversion of a former hotel, Tarn End Cottages 8 enjoys uninterrupted views over the landscaped gardens, Talkin Tarn and the Carrock Fells beyond.

Perfect for a romantic couples break to Cumbria, this stylish dwelling presents quality furnishings and comforts whilst being in the midst of fantastic countryside to explore.

As you walk in through the door into the open-plan living space be immediately drawn to the large picture windows which perfectly frame the view of the tarn, with the plush sofa perfectly positioned for both admiring the views as well as settling in front of the beautiful glass electric fire and Smart TV.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything needed to prepare a delicious meal including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine with granite worktops and quality units.

Let the stairs lead you up to the romantic first-floor bedroom where a wall of windows provide the perfect backdrop to a relaxing soak in the unique, bespoke brass roll-top bath tub, placed at the end of the room.

Glimpse the stars twinkling above the water below from you bed before drifting off, waking up to a refreshing shower in your en-suite luxury shower room, complete with a towel rail and large enclosure.

Spend time out on your private patio area with alfresco dining, sunbathing or simply getting stuck in a good book on a mild afternoon, with strolls down through the landscaped shared gardens and around the tarn to look forward to as well.

The whole of Talkin Tarn Country Park spans 120 acres and is a natural beauty spot right on your doorstep, with the tarn home to sailing, rowing clubs, boat hire and a tea room, so you can enjoy gliding along the water followed by a sweet treat in the tea room.

Brampton Golf Club is just a stone's throw away, while the market town of Brampton is just over two miles from the cottage and boasts all the amenities you need during your stay, from shops and supermarkets to pubs and restaurants, perfect when you want a night off from cooking and a romantic meal.

Pull on your walking boots and embark on some fantastic walks in the surrounding area, starting with a jaunt along the Pennine Way in the North Pennines AONB, with the path loosely hugging the River South Tyne and boasting brilliant views of the surrounding peaks Cold Fell, Great Blacklawn Hill and Pike Rigg providing even more walking opportunities.

Venture into the city of Carlisle to visit Carlisle Castle, sample the various restaurants and cuisines and delight in some excellent shopping.

You are also in a fantastic location for treks along the ancient Roman Hadrian's Wall, with a wealth of historic ruins to catch sight of and discover along the way including turrets, castles, and defensive walls.

Spend a beautiful holiday with your loved one at Tarn End Cottages 8 soaking up the Cumbrian countryside.

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.
