The Stable description

Holiday home
This lovely stone-built mid terrace cottage is located on a working livestock farm in the rural hamlet of Milton. Situated just two miles from Brampton, this cottage is a careful renovation of one of the old farm buildings. Retaining original beams and exposed stonework, this welcoming property features a cosy lounge with adjacent summer room, a small modern kitchen, and a pretty main bedroom, making this an ideal romantic retreat. Guests can also enjoy the decked balcony, with its fabulous countryside views.

Ideally placed for exploring northern Cumbria, the little hamlet of Milton is set close to numerous attractions including Hadrians Wall, the Solway Firth and the Lake District National Park. With a rich and colourful history, the market town of Brampton dates back to the Roman occupation, and boasts evidence of Scottish border raids and the Jacobite uprising. Apparently, even Bonnie Prince Charlie was a fan of the town, establishing his headquarters in what is now a shop. Just a few miles away is the Talkin Tarn Country Park. Covering 180 acres, the Tarn - a 10,000 year old glacial lake - accounts for 65 acres and is fed by underwater springs. Slightly further south, visitors can take a trip to Gelt Woods - an ancient woodland set along the banks of the River Gelt.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

Lovely little cottage, good for a couple. Nice hot tub and friendly owners. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting places; Coniston Water especially, however we are happy drivers and although there is things to do not too far from the cottage some of the main lakes and attractions are a good hour away.

The owners were very friendly and informative about the surrounding area and were always on hand if you needed anything. The cottage had more than expected and was very homely and comfy. We had a very relaxed and enjoyable 3 nights and we are already looking to see when we can go back.

Quiet and peaceful, in the little village of Brampton. The owners were extremely pleasant and laid back, she showed us how to work the log fire and hot tub and left us to it. The bedroom and bathroom were modern and very comfy, and they were of a decent size. Would definitely recommend for anyone wanting to visit Cumbria and the Lake District.

A great spot, handy to many areas and we liked the rural setting. The garden was lovely, it was very comfortable to return to after a day out and outdoor seating for dining was very pleasant. The host was very helpful. Had good parking, shopping close and was a lovely restored farm building. We had a terrific week there.

It was warm and welcoming, was of a high standard and had everything we needed to hand, especially liked the bed - very comfortable. Nice sun room to eat in and watch the birds outside. Hot tub and summer house was really good, lovely wood burner, the heating system kept the cottage very warm anyway. Quality bedding and towels were an added bonus. We are already planning to revisit.

The cottage was very clean, homely, cosy and the fire kept it really warm. I loved the bath which was massive! The bed was also really comfortable. We had such a relaxing week and the hot tub was great for having a drink and getting a look at the stars which are amazing on a clear night! Really lovely, friendly and helpful owner as well. Also, Spring was a great time to go as there were lambs pottering around just at the end of the garden - so cute.

Had a lovely, relaxing time. The owner was very friendly and knowledgeable of what to do and where to take our dog Woody. Will definitely stay again in the future.

Great location; not far from Carlisle and Hadrians wall. Hot tub was lovely, wood burner very warm - made the room very cosy.
Miss Beck
January 2014
The cottage was lovely and beautifully maintained. The lady who owns it was brilliant, she was extremely helpful and knowledgeable of the local area. Our stay was even more special to us because we got engaged whilst we were there. We will definitely be returning! Definitely worth paying extra for the use of the hot tub. We spent a lot of time in there and it made our break even more special being able to sit out in comfort at night with a couple of drinks. The place could not have been more perfect for us.

We liked having a deck to sit on outside and also having a conservatory to sit in inside.

We had a brilliant weekend away, with a log fire and access to the hot tub in the garden. Very friendly owners who explained everything brilliantly. Brilliant location, close to a small village and plenty of walks along Hadrian wall. Beautiful setting, and very peaceful, would recommend to everyone.

The owner was very friendly and most helpful with her suggestion of places to visit and places to eat. Her local knowledge was very good. There was plenty of information and tourist guides available in cottage.

The owners were very friendly and helpful. The area itself was beautiful and there were lots of places to enjoy the local scenery and go walking. An all round lovely cottage retreat which certainly made mine and my partner's Christmas memorable!
Mrs Hamilton

Very friendly owners. Large bedroom and good bathroom. Houghton Hall garden centre worth a visit.
Mrs Duncan

I enjoyed the cottage. It was lovely, great for just 2 people. Cosy and warm in the cold winter nights. The owner was really nice. Not far from the local town and nice local pubs for food and drink. Nice places to go and visit if you are interested in outdoors/walking.
Ms Attwood

The owner of the property was very pleasant and welcoming. Cosy cottage which was ideal for our relaxing break away. I would recommend this cottage - we will be returning!

A friendly welcome from the owners. Peaceful setting. Brampton is an interesting town with good attractions nearby eg: Hadrian's Wall, Lanercost Priory, Talkin Tarn Country Park, Geltsdale RSPB Reserve and good walking in the North Pennines.
Mr Throup

The property owners were there, but not intrusive. Compact, contained and a pleasant place to rest.
Mr Dallaway

Good location for Hadrian's Wall. Also the nearby Miltonrigg Wood was good for dog walking.
Mr Crisp

Nice, rural area, peaceful and quiet. Very helpful owners. Compact cottage but the right size for the two of us.
Mr Gutierrez

The cottage and the views from it were really lovely and the garden was very nicely kept. We could have not asked for a better location or surroundings. We particularly enjoyed its location and the fact that there was a dishwasher! The heating was very good. The lady owner was very helpful and attentive. She had left novels, puzzles and DVDs in the cottage for our use. She left us tea, sugar, milk and a bottle of wine on our arrival! The kitchen was fully equipped and up to a very nice standard, nothing was missing. There was paper and kindling for the fire. Loved the place!
April 2013
The owner was very nice woman who was there to greet us when we arrived and showed us around, there was a bundle of leaflets for various attractions and take aways and she showed us how to work the log fire which is lovely but we found doesn't give off that much heat however the hearing was on all the time so we weren't cold. The kitchen is cosy and fully equipped, the bathroom is lovely and large, the bedroom is big but the only quibble was the fridge rattled a bit so took me a while to ignore that on the first night. The lounge is cosy but slightly old fashioned decor. The conservatory is lovely to have a meal in the evening with a gorgeous view. There is a Trainline very close to the house but I only heard it once in a 5 day stay. There is also an outdoor patio area to eat if the weather permits. The hot tub is massive and fits 8 people and easy to use but it's not very private and your sharing it with 2 other cottages adjoined to yours. It was lovely to go in though. The summer house is large and warm and has a large stack of DVDs and a small TV so you can sit in there and relax. There's also a cross trainer in there. I'd definitely come back here again and recommend it to others.
