Tucked away in an area of natural beauty, with exquisite views of the tarn, is the luxurious, two-bedroom Tarn End Cottages 5.

Wrapped in an abundance of greenery and within easy reach of amenities in Brampton, this romantic abode is the perfect scene for two couples looking to explore the wonderful countryside of Cumbria.

Leave the vehicles in the car park, as you stroll up to the cottage and soak in the tranquil surroundings; climb a few steps to arrive at the foot of the property.

Enter the divine open-plan living space, with a matte, grey kitchen area to prepare mouth-watering dishes and take advantage of the dishwasher and washing machine for an efficient holiday, spending time where it matters most, exploring or with loved ones.

Settle down at the elegant dining table, take a seat on the plush chair as you enjoy a tasty meal and pop open a bottle of fizz from the wine cooler to toast to a splendid getaway.

After dinner savour a glass of wine in the rear garden to relish the spectacular views, with lights guiding you down to the tarn and jetty for an evening stroll.

Unwind in the sitting area, flick on the Smart TV and allow the glow of the electric woodburning stove gently heat the room for a relaxing ambiance.

As the evening grows darker, retire upstairs to discover two lavish bedrooms one with king-size bed and one room with twin beds with an en-suite shower room with WC and basin and brass bath.

In the morning, enjoy a walk around the1.3-mile tarn, through rich woodlands and have a steaming cup of coffee at the Café and Gift Shop.

The abode is just paces away from an excellent golf course, as well as fishing in the tarn, or the option to go kayaking or join in with archery.

About the location


Carlisle 10 miles.

The market town of Brampton is the ideal base for exploring Hadrian’s Wall. The town boasts a rich and colourful history going back to the Roman occupation, Border reivers 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.
