  • "Lovely cottage, as it looks in the photos."

    It is set in a beautiful location to relax. The owners left us to it but were also around and live just a couple of doors up, if we did want them for anything. They also asked how our stay was going/if everything was ok 1 or 2 days into the holiday. The hot tub was great, especially for relaxing in after our long walks and was also ready for use on our arrival. Hope to stay again as we had a lovely time staying here and there's plenty more walks and sights to see in the nearby areas. Lots of leaflets were provided about nearby attractions/areas to visit which was also helpful, having never been to Cumbria before.

  • "Only downside was no instructions for the ovens."

    We struggled at first to work them and figure out which had a grill and which was best for what and gave up in the end and just used the one that seemed to work sufficiently for what we were doing but it would have been far better with instructions. Otherwise great accommodation and very comfortable

  • "This property is set in a stunning location!"

    The views from all the rooms are fantastic - whatever the weather! It's worth it just for that! The cottage itself is very well appointed, warm and comfortable with plenty of storage space as well as very adequate provision for four people. The hot tub was ready on arrival and proved quite a hit with the younger members of the party! The parking is rather better than the listing suggests with adequate space for four or more vehicles within a few feet of the entrance to the cottage. Some might consider the approach road a bit bumpy, but if you take it steady, it's fine and actually very much in keeping with the rural setting. The provision of fuel for the log burner and the pods for the coffee machine, as well as slippers and dressing gowns was much appreciated. The beds were really comfortable. Each room had efficient, independently controlled electric radiators - a useful feature. The kitchen / dining/ seating area was large and well appointed with all mod cons. High Rigg is conveniently situated near a market town, nice village pubs and with good access to Hadrian's Wall and great walks through Gelt Woods and Talkin Tarn. A trip to Carlisle is very worthwhile and not far away. While the Lakes are within driving range, we found enough to occupy us nearby and so did not make that trip. We found the property to be excellent value and the owners very approachable and anxious to make sure we enjoyed our stay. It would have been useful to have had a downloadable inventory which would have cut down the list of things to bring along. It would also have been good to have sheets of local walks contained within the welcome pack. We already knew about Gelt Woods and Talking Tarn or we would have missed out somewhat.

    When we arrived Brenda was watching to greet us and welcome us to High Rigg woodland cottage, the exterior and interior was immaculate, everything you require was there and the hot tub was superb, slight private tucked at the back of the cottage but you had the most picturesque view of the hills in the background. Brenda and David couldn't be more accommodating, nothing was ever a problem. Would definitely go back.

    Booked as a relatively short notice break to replace a holiday abroad and we couldn't be happier. Lovely remote location but relatively close to Carlisle and the Lake District if that's your interest but to be fair we didn't wander too far from the kitchen or the hot tub. Having Brenda and David on the site was really handy for taking advice around local pubs/restaurants. Really nice quiet relaxing stay which we will definitely look to book again. Thank You!

  • "This cottage was absolutely stunning."

    The little personal touches to welcome us were appreciated. The owners were warm, friendly and welcoming without being in your face all the time. The grounds around the cottage are worth a mention, beautifully kept with many points of interest, ie the fishing pond, the wicker stag nestled against the tree, the rolling hills viewed from the balcony. The peacefulness was just brilliant. The furniture inside the cottage was quality, comfortable and everything you needed, the bedrooms were warm, with plenty of storage, lovely bedding and soft cushions and pillows. The en-suites had a wonderfully hot towel rail and the towels were thick and good quality. Shower was very good and a nice touch to be provided with shower gel and hand soap. We had the wow factor as we opened the door on arrival, the lovely twinkling lights were lit above the fireplace and the huge clock on the wall of the open plan kitchen was lit. There was a lovely plate of home made freshly baked scones with butter and jam on the table and a nice bottle of wine in the fridge. We enjoyed the hot tub too, and there was plenty of seating on the deck area and some huge lanterns to add to the ambience of the whole area. We had a really lovely week here and would recommend this cottage to anyone who appreciates quality furnishings and surroundings in a peaceful haven.

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.
