    Cottage was cosy and clean with everything you would need. Owner was lovely and helpful. Would return again anytime.

  • "Everything was as it should be."

    Rural location and only a 15 min walk to Brampton station where there was a good rail service (including evenings) to and fro Carlisle . Only moan was the water pressure was low and not really practical to fill the bath but the shower was spot on so it didn't matter. I'd certainly return for another stay.

  • "This cottage is small, luckily I was alone with a dog."

    The decking right outside the door is shaky and you can see bricks have been placed to try provide some support. The handrail in front of the decking is rotten and unsafe, I leaned on it and it moved away from the deck post. The conservatory had a fly paper hanging with lot if dead flies on when i arrived, and it was full of flies, i had to go into Brampton and by fly spray. The "new" conservatory door had spacers packing the door glass, which was ok for first day, but when rain started it was coming into the conservatory. The living room, bedroom nd bathroom are good enough for 2 people, but the kitchen is bad. It is only wide enough for 1 person, if you are at the cooker and need to open fridge or other cupboard you can't you have to move right out of kitchen to access anything. Ok for 1 person. Location is good. Needs a good clean

    The bed very comfortable, also a cosy living area and lovely conservatory. Don't be put off by the outside fencing etc which needs a little TLC. We had one minor problem and Mabel the owner was around within seconds and sorted it. Mabel could not do enough for you she was an excellent host.

    Great little cottage converted from old stables/barn. Quiet location which is ideally suited for base to explore borders, Hadrian's wall and Roman ruins, Kielder forest and the Lake District all within an hour's drive. We would definitely go back there and are already thinking about rebooking.

  • "The cottage itself was clean, comfortable and cosy, the problem was the hot tub."

    We only booked this cottage because of the inclusion of a hot tub. My partner works in care and she was looking forward to spending plenty of time in the hot tub with the jets on to relieve the pain in her back and legs. We attempted to use the hot tub on the Sunday afternoon, the water was hot, only one or two of the of the jets were working, very disappointing, pretty much useless, there was one filter fitted the other was discarded on the grass besides the hot tub, there were a few valves not fitted and we found them in the cabin adjacent, the control panel was worn and some of the the buttons un-responsive. All in all the hot tub was in need of a very good clean and a lot of maintenance and repair, to be honest I think it would be more cost effective to replace. The cabin by the hot tub was also in need of a lot of maintenance and repair. I think you should remove the hot tub from your description of the accommodation until it is in a good state of operation as this is tantamount to false advertising, its not right to say there is a hot tub if it is not working.

  • "The Stable is lovely and cosy."

    Massive bath as well as a shower. Yes you can see the trains go by but you can barely hear them even from outside. The conservatory was lovely to sit in when the weather wasn't great, before moving to the living room and lighting the log burner. Kitchen has everything you need. Perfect location for exploring Hadrian's Wall.

  • "I absolutely loved my stay at the stable."

    It was really cosy, clean and in the most perfect location for walking through the rspb reserve, gelt woods, talkin tarn etc. However I was without WiFi’s until Tuesday and I had arrived on Friday. It was resolved in the end and the lady did try her best to fix it, I should found it frustrating as I expected to have access to wifi throughout the stay. I didn’t enjoy spending the amount of time I did messing on with box trying to get it working. in addition I felt a few more supplies were needed in the cottage, washing up tablets, tea, coffee, spare batteries for the tv as I had to make extra trips out as these ran out or weren’t available during my stay. But besides the WiFi, the location and other facilities were lovely.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are glad to hear that you had a lovely time. If the instructions on the link box are followed for the WiFi there are no issues, we have clarified these instructions now so guests are aware. As this is a self catering cottage we do provide limited supplies for guests however there may not be enough for a weeks stay. Property Owner

About the location


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.
