  • “Just returned from a wonderful weekend away, peaceful surroundings & wonderful views.”

    The accommodation was really cosy & comfortable well equipped with all that we required.

    The accommodation was really cosy & comfortable well equipped with all that we required. The shepherds pie & bottle of fizz was a really nice surprise. The hot tub was a real delight. Look forward to returning again next year. Thank you :)

Open the patio doors to spend a moment or two on the decked area, where you can enjoy a spot of alfresco dining before dipping into the bubbling hot tub to admire the surroundings views further.

Keep warm in front of the superb Kadai firepit and pop open the bottle of champagne and roast some marshmallows before you retire to the plush king-size bed.

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.
