    “We had a fabulous stay and will be highly recommending it to friends and family.”

    The layout of the cottage was very good and the beds comfortable with well-equipped En-Suite shower rooms, and the rest of the cottage was well equipped. The views of the Tarn Lake were spectacular in Autumn colours especially when the sun came out. Superbly situated in an area that is very quiet and peaceful. Recommendations for minor improvement: For night time arrivals, the key safe box was hard to see the numbers without the use of a torch. A request for the two single beds to be put together was not complied with which was disappointing. The fire was left with the flame effect disc out which took 3 days of our stay to find, insert and achieve the correct visual display and sound effect. The curtains in the lounge / kitchen area very high making them a little awkward to pull closed and open, could do with a pull pole on the end curtain ring for ease of use for that height and would alleviate any possibility of damage occurring. Maybe an instruction leaflet on operating the hob for those not familiar with electric hobs Minor point that could make ones stay slightly easier.

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.
