  • "Stable cottage is the perfect place to stay for visiting the area."

    Facilities are excellent and the pub is a short walk for a drink in the evening. Could you provide some small glasses for juice etc when we return in July.

    Many thanks for your feedback Karen and for leaving the cottage very clean and tidy. It was lovely meeting you and we look forward to seeing you all again in July. (The smaller glasses are already in) Best wishes Cath and Eddie. Property Owner

  • "Fabulous little property, well maintained in a beautiful part of the country."

    Well placed to explore the surrounding area, with the nearby market town of Brampton full of amenities. The Stable had everything you could need. Low ceiling height upstairs may be an issue if you are 6ft tall!!! Eddie the owner greeted us on arrival and came to check we were warm enough,following a cold snap. Highly recommend The Stable as a holiday home.

  • "I stayed at Stable Cottage for a short break in October."

    It is very well equipped and Eddie is nearby if you need anything. The welcome pack of bread, fruit, cake and chocolate biscuits was a nice touch. Also the Smart TV with Netflix included. Everything is clean and new and I enjoyed relaxing at Stable Cottage after each day walking the Hadrian’s Wall Path. Hope to make a return visit.

    Many thanks for coming to see us Carol and for your feedback which is most appreciated. It was great to meet you and you will always be welcome at Stable Cottage. Kind regards Cath and Eddie. Property Owner

  • "Our stay at Stable Cottage was excellent."

    The cottage has everything you could need and is very cosy in every way. Fruit cake, milk, biscuits and a huge bowl of fruit greeted us on arrival. Eddie is a very friendly and helpful caretaker and is just 15metres away if needed. Hallbankgate is a beautiful village with a community cafe and nice pub a very short walk away. The outlook from the cottage is striking with the massive north Pennine hills a few minutes away. I would not hesitate to stay at the cottage again and strongly recommend it.

    Thank you for your feedback Paul it is most appreciated, and many thanks for looking after our cottage and leaving it very clean and tidy. Best wishes Cath and Eddie. Property Owner

About the location


Brampton 3.5 miles; Carlisle 12.8 miles; Penrith 22.3 miles.

Situated on the North Westerly edge of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is the picturesque village of Hallbankgate. Once a former coal and lead mining settlement and home to the renowned Lord Carlisle's railway, Hallbankgate is now a lovely holiday destination, nestled amongst the unspoilt scenery of Cumbria with fascinating limestone quarries resting on its southern end. Named after Lord William Howard of Naworth castle, the traditional, 17th century pub of The Belted Will is highly rated amongst the locals and boasts friendly service and great food. Hallbankgate additionally hosts a handy supermarket, where holiday-goers can grab all of their essentials during their stay. The village backs onto the nature reserve of RSPB Geltsdale, where walkers and cyclists can wander through to their heart's content whilst spotting the Cumbrian wildlife. The Talkin Tarn Country Park is even closer to the village and is an extremely popular fishing and picnicking spot. Travel further afield to Lanercost, where history fans will be pleased to discover the stunning ruins of the once-glorious Lanercost Priory, before continuing on to the remains of Hadrian's Wall. With easy access to Brampton and Carlisle, visitors are provided ample opportunity for days out filled with attractions and culture. Nature enthusiasts can venture further into the North Pennines AONB to discover more outdoors activities, or visit the Lake District National Park for a plethora of lakeside fun and watersports to partake in.
