  • "The host Rosie and Len along with the accommodation and location were amazing."

    A small touch and really appreciated was the gift pack provided of milk, eggs plus a bottle of wine. A lovely unexpected touch. We would certainly recommend this to any prospective visitors to the area and will very definitely return in due course. Our heartfelt thanks to Rosie and Len. Ray and Sharon, Kenilworth, Warwickshire.

  • "The bungalow was well equipped, the views were amazing."

    Our children loved walking the fields and seeing all the sheep. The owner's Farmer Len (as our little girl called him) & his wife were very friendly and we can't wait to go back. There were lots of interesting places to visit for both adults & children.

  • "We highly recommend this bungalow."

    Very clean comfortable and spacious. It’s attached to the farm house but still felt like our own space. The couple were lovely were available for questions but were not intrusive. Was a beautiful location with lots to see and do but also quiet and tranquil if required

  • "The cottage was larger than we expected and was clean and comfortable."

    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".

  • "The cottage is situated on a quiet sheep farm."

    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.

    Our boys loved watching the farmer at work and the sheep out of the house windows. Hospitality was second to none with welcoming milk, eggs and wine on arrival. The bungalow was very comfortable and spacious for a family of four and extremely well kept. Situated very close to Hadrian’s Wall, we had a great time exploring and being in the countryside. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

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.
