The property

A delightful detached Cumbrian longhouse, set around a traditional courtyard, next to the owners’ home in a peaceful rural location, four miles from the hamlet of Bewcastle and within reach of the market town of Brampton.

Ideal for a quiet getaway, this superb cottage has a wonderful outlook across pretty meadows, woodland and vibrant green rolling fields.

All ground floor, Black Lyne Lodge has a spacious kitchen/diner, with sleek units and a large, bright dining area.

The adjacent sitting room has deep red cosy sofas and a woodburning stove, perfect for curling up on after a long day out in the countryside.

Four comfortable bedrooms provide the perfect night’s sleep for all the family members, and to the rear of the cottage there is a delightful conservatory with comfortable chairs.

From the conservatory is a lawned garden and patio, what could be better than to bask in warm sunshine, with a drink whilst watching the local wildlife and the owner's menagerie including Angora rabbits, miniature horses, cats and dogs.

A short drive from your cottage will take you to Brampton with an array with pubs, wine bars, restaurants and supermarkets.

Locally, explore the ruins of Bewcastle and St Cuthbert’s Church with the 7th century Bewcastle Cross, or just soak up the delights of the countryside from your doorstep, where walking and cycling along the quiet lanes is simply a delight.

Nearby Kershope Forest, is great for horse riding and cycling, and avid cyclists can also take advantage of the Reivers Route, a 173 mile coast-to-coast cycle route.

Rock UK Whithaugh Park in Newcastleton, just ten miles away, offers a 300m zip wire, a challenging low ropes course, epic mountain biking, indoor swimming, kayaking and canoeing, gorge walking and abseiling, fencing and archery, making it a great day out for all the family.

For the avid explorers a trip to Kielder Forest is a must and the delights of the beautiful Solway Coast and Hadrian's Wall mustn’t be missed.

Alternatively, why not head north and discover the Dumfries and Galloway coastline, or the stunning Scottish Borders steeped in history?

About the location

ROADHEAD

Brampton 11 miles; Carlisle 20.5 miles.

The quiet village of Roadhead is surrounded by lovely countryside near the market town of Brampton, an ideal base for exploring Hadrian’s Wall. Brampton boasts a rich and colourful history going back to the Roman occupation, Border raiders 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.
