The property

High Rigg is located close to the rural hamlet of Faugh near Carlisle and Hadrian's Wall.

The cottage is newly refurbished by an interior designer to provide luxurious, romantic accommodation for a couple or for a family looking to escape the city.

Relaxing in your own private hot tub on the balcony where you can take in the views of the Castle Carrock fells or snuggling up in front of the cosy wood burning stove will leave you longing to return to this idyllic retreat year after year. The rural hamlet of Faugh is located 7 miles east of Carlisle with traditional village pub and further amenities are available in the market town of Brampton, 3 miles east.

About the location

BRAMPTON, CUMBRIA

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 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.
