  • "This is our second visit and it is perfect in every way."

    We look forward to our next visit. Would recommend it to anybody who enjoys the countryside. Rosie and Len are the perfect hosts

  • "We had a wonderful holiday at Acorns."

    The owners made us very welcome as soon as we arrived. The property was very light and comfortable with lovely furniture and an excellent bed and bedding. I slept better there than at home. The huge freezer and efficient oven made meal times easy. Rather than being rather isolated in a cottage, our bungalow was right next to the farmyard so we were able to observe what was going on from day to day. Watching the sheepdog controlling the sheep and lambs as they came for a feed was a real education. We definitely plan to go back .

  • "We spent a fantastic 3 weeks at Acorns."

    A wonderful location, exceptionally clean and spacious accommodation with everything we needed on hand. Quite accessible for our mum who after hip surgery, needs a roller walker. Beautiful scenery in a very peaceful location and watching all the lambs arriving daily on the farm and running about in the fields and seeing the sheepdogs in action was lovely. Rosie you work so hard, we don’t know how you manage so much! Hope Len continues his recovery. We recommend Acorns to any visitor looking for a place to stay in the area as it is also close to many of the attractions and towns for necessities.

    Len runs a very busy sheep farm and it's good to watch his sheep dogs at work. The only thing that would stop us returning next year would be our health, all being well we willl return again.

    Set on a work sheep farm. Property was spotless and the location very quiet, also very dark at night, idea if you want to go star gazing. Brampton is a short drive away and the Roman Wall (Birdoswald) closer still.

    Our hosts, Rosie and Len were very helpful , friendly and we felt that were welcome visitors. If you want a peaceful place to stay, this is it. Hadrian's wall is within walking distance and has information boards recalling the history of the Roman presence on the frontier between Scotland and Britain. The Lake district and the Keilder forest are within easy driving district and you can enjoy "dark skies" and a myriad stars when you visit the forest. We would definitely recommend this holiday cottage.

  • "The owners Len and Rosie were really friendly and helpful and there was a bottle of red wine, milk and eggs on our arrival, a very nice touch."

    The bungalow had lovely country views to one side, including the main living areas. The sheep farm is adjacent but the activity is not intrusive, indeed the morning feed delivery to the fields was very entertaining! There was a very good layout to the property, with room sizes larger than we were expecting. In addition to having everything we needed in the bungalow, it is not far from other amenities and many varied places of interest, a good place to relax in or explore from. Wifi was installed in the farm during our stay, and the signal could be used in some parts of the bungalow (the owners are planning to improve this with a repeater). So we were very satisfied and would recommend "Acorns".

    Ideal for what we wanted. We used the cottage as a Base for walking hadrians wall path. There is a pretty path from the road side to tge national trail. It was lovely and spacious. Very clean. The owners are friendly, bringing some fresh eggs too. There was no Internet access, but I understand that is being dealt with shortly. We found the lack of online access a great incentive to do other stuff.

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.
