“Situated a couple of miles outside of the main village of Brampton, the cottage is an ideal base to explore all of the delights Brampton has to offer of which there is an abundance!”
Swallow cottage is small but perfectly formed! Well stocked with all of the stuff you need for a long weekend tramping through the woods of Miltonrigg or meandering round the stunning Talkin Tarn lake. After your wander its well worth going into town and visiting the Howard Arms (very dog friendly) service with a smile and the food is great! Also if you just fancy a pint and to soak up a bit of cumbrian atmosphere then Shoulder of Mutton is the place to be (Also dog friendly) most pubs in town are. This place has the best home made pork pies I've ever tasted!
Mrs Ackerley is a perfect host who gave us the warmest of welcome's and was a font of knowledge about the area. The garden was perfect for our two Jack Russells who simply did not want to leave! Storm Ciara did unfortunatley gatecrash our holiday but she didn't dampen our spirts. We simply lit the log fire and huddled around the table with a game and some nibbles and had some quality time completely unplugged!. The Hot tub is shared between all 4 properties and in need of some maintenance but once that's sorted it will be a perfect accompaniment to your stay. It's a short walk from the cottages but there is a summer house for you to change into your speedos :) The showers aren't the most powerful but do get the job done, however I would suggest talking your own bath towels as the ones provided are quite small.
We really enjoyed our stay at Swallow cottage and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to fellow trampers with furry friends!
