    “Check in was straight forward and businesslike we were able to get in early which was helpful to both parties.”

    ...

    Nice sized accommodation, compact and user friendly. In desperate need of repair, door frames coming off, curtain pole in twin bedroom coming off, lights hanging down in en suite bathroom. Crockery chipped and in need of replacing. In kitchen area really needs a good degreasing. Hot tub is communal, a couple of the jets weren't working so we didn't use it but owner said is usually chargeable, but on the website the impression is the hot tub is individual. Lovely and warm, plenty of heating with a great location.

The property

A charming, stone-built, semi-detached cottage on the owner’s working farm in the rural hamlet of Milton, two miles from the Cumbrian market town of Brampton.

This Milton cottage has been thoughtfully converted from former farm buildings to create a tasteful, holiday cottage retreat.

The open plan living accommodation at this Milton cottage is light and airy with floor-to-ceiling windows on the front and side elevations, and a French door giving access to a charming patio and lawned area, both in a perfect position for catching the sun and relaxing.

On chillier nights, stoke up the woodburner, curl up and watch the stars from the windows whilst those who enjoy the cooking can rustle up a tasty treat in the kitchen behind.

This Milton cottage is ideal for a small family or a couple, with a double bedroom with en-suite shower room and a twin with family bathroom, which has a bath with a shower over.

This Milton cottage is perfectly positioned for visiting the Scottish Borders, Northern Lakes and Pennines and the magnificent, historic Hadrian's Wall.

This lovely Milton cottage is set in the perfect rural location for your Cumbrian break.

About the location

MILTON

Brampton 2 miles; Hadrian's Wall 7 miles; Carlisle 11 miles.

The small rural village of Milton is ideally placed for exploring northern Cumbria, including not-to-be-missed Hadrian's Wall, the lovely coastline of the Solway Firth and the dramatic northern Lake District National Park.

The nearby market town of Brampton has a rich and colourful history going back to the Roman occupation, Border raiders from Scotland and the Jacobite uprisings.

Bonnie Prince Charlie established his headquarters in one of the old buildings in Brampton, which is now a shop.

A few miles outside Brampton is Talkin Tarn Country Park.

It covers 180 acres, 65 of which make up the Tarn, a 10,000 year old glacial lake, fed by underwater springs.

Further south is Gelt Woods which is an ancient woodland with the River Gelt running through.

A superb base for exploring this historic and scenically beautiful area..
