    “Lovely property, spacious. Definitely on list for future visits when visiting family in the area”

    Owner was helpful from time of booking all the way through to when we left. The property itself was very spacious. Master bedroom overlooks fields with sheep and their barn. Dont be surprised to hear them. As visit was in March plenty of lambs on view. Both upstairs bedrooms have spacious bathrooms which have showers. If you want a bath then use downstairs bathroom. Water pressure was not great but not the worst. Parking is ok outside so long as everyone parks sensibly. For me it was good as it meant I could park right by the front door and my disabled mother in law did not have to walk far. Kitchen was well supplied with lots of mugs, glasses, plates, pots, serving dishes etc. Decent size fridge freezer. If blinds are open then yes passers by can see into the kitchen. The passers by are normally the farm workers in their vehicles. They are not going by past every 5 minutes so was t an issue. My biggest bug bear of the entire week has to be the smoke alarm! Would go off every time you used the toaster. When I cooked with the hob or oven no issues just that toaster. We even moved the toaster! Living room was an ok size with seating for 6. The internet was of a decent speed. Husband liked the tv as it was modern and large. The garden is quite spacious with a lawn. In a couple of years garden will look prettier once the trees have grown. Patio space is ok but be careful as a few of the slabs are not secured. Hot tub was nice and large. It had a feature I’ve never seen before with a metal bar that makes taking the cover off and on so much easier. Due to the weather being very windy we only got to use the wood burner a couple of times :-(. Also due to the weather discovered quite a few drafts but the radiators in each of the rooms helped. I have already recommended this place to a friend. Definitely on my list to check out on future stays when visiting family.

The property

A fabulous, terraced barn conversion on the owner’s working farm in the pretty hamlet of Milton, just a short drive from Brampton.

Lovingly converted, the interior of The Barn has been well-thought-out to provide maximum comfort for guests.

The sitting room has a warming woodburner and sumptuous sofas, the large windows overlook the enclosed garden and French doors lead to the patio area.

This is an ideal spot for letting the dogs safely stretch their legs or just relaxing and watching the sun descend behind the Tindle Fells to the West.

On frosty evenings what would be better than battening down the hatches, and relaxing in front of the woodburner whilst watching a film on the 50" Smart TV!

The adjoining kitchen/diner has a large table, ideal for those family meals or a spot of Monopoly.

The Barn is ideal for a large family or couples, with two en-suite bedrooms and a family bathroom for the third bedroom.

Perfectly positioned for visiting the Scottish Borders, Northern Lakes and Pennines, this is a wonderful place for a Cumbrian break at any time of year.

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.
