Swift Cottage description

Holiday home
Swift Cottage is a stone-built, mid-terrace, single-storey barn conversion, on the owners' working livestock farm, in the rural village of Milton, just two miles from the market town of Brampton. This cottage sleeps four people in two bedrooms, consisting of one double with en-suite shower and one twin, as well as a bathroom. The cottage also has an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area with woodburning stove. Outside there's off road parking for two cars, a lawned garden with patio and furniture and shared use of a summerhouse and hot tub. Swift Cottage is a convenient base for exploring both the Lake District and Northumberland.

The small rural village of Milton is ideally placed for exploring northern Cumbria, including Hadrian's Wall, the coastline of the Solway Firth and the Lake District National Park. The market town of Brampton is just two miles away and a few miles outside the town is Talkin Tarn Country Park.

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 cottage, wonderful owners and a superb location. Everything was available that we could want. The parking right in front of the accommodation was very handy. Everything was perfect.

We have just come back from a brilliant one weeks stay at Swift Cottage, cannot fault it at all. It was very spacious and clean, sometimes the images on line show accommodation in a better light, however, this was even better than we expected. The enclosed garden was fantastic for our two dogs to run around in when we weren't out walking with them in the field on the farm. The kitchen was really well equipped and with plenty of everything, the dishwasher was a real bonus! The hot tub was a great place for all of us to chill out, whatever the weather, a brilliant extra. The location was great too, very peaceful, but not far from Hadrian's wall, lots of lovely villages, and only 10 miles from Carlisle too! Last, but not least, the owners were very helpful and always on hand if we needed them. Would recommend to anyone who wants a great place for a relaxing break, and we look forward to going back ourselves.

A very comfortable cottage which was well equipped and in beautiful surroundings. It was very convenient for visiting both Cumbria and Northumbria. The owners were very accommodating and always on hand to help with any questions we had about the cottage or the area.

This was a fantastic cottage with really great owners who were so friendly and accommodating! I took all sorts, however compared to other cottages this was so well equipped, it had everything you could think of. It was comfortable and cosy with a great garden for the dog and a nice woodland walk near by.

The cottage was just what we were looking for, it was very cosy and relaxing and in a tranquil setting. We couldn't have asked for anything more. We will definitely be returning.

This cottage was superb, everything you want for a relaxing, peaceful, luxurious break. Owners were so welcoming and friendly and were not intrusive during our stay. Great value for money, only issue was weather which is totally out with the owners control, unfortunately

Very friendly owners, the accommodation was very spacious and bright. The bed and linen was gorgeous, brilliant attention to detail. The log burner was a delight at night.

Can't fault swift cottage at all. We decided to spend the second half of our honeymoon here with the sole purpose of relaxing and getting away from it all and that's exactly what we did. The cottage is situated in the small town of Milton which is about a mile away from Brampton (which has a co-op, pubs, take aways, golden fortune chinese delivers and is very nice, coffee shops etc.) Milton itself is very quiet but that's exactly what we were after. There was a lovely walk through a nearby forest which we both enjoyed, and there are plenty of other things to see and do in the local area, Hadrians wall is about 4 miles away and Carlisle is about 10 miles away if you want to go shopping. As other reviewers have said there aren't a lot of big supermarkets nearby so I would suggest doing a shop closer to home and taking it with you, there is plenty of cupboard space and a decent size fridge freezer to store everything. The cottage itself is exactly what you'd want for a short break. Clean, comfortable, and well equipped. We took our own basics, tea coffee sugar etc. but found it was already there which was great, there's a dish washer to save on washing up which was even better and the cottage was clean from top to to bottom. The log fire was great with enough wood to keep you going for a couple of days and more available for a small fee should you need it. We took our dog which has been an issue in places we have stayed previously as she's a bit of an escape artist and so we have to leave her tied up or behind closed doors to prevent her escaping, wasn't an issue here though! A previous reviewer mentioned pallets on parts of the fence in the garden to plug some holes but these have now gone and the fence is complete giving an excellent enclosed space for dogs to run around, we didn't sit out there because of the weather but I imagine in summer it would be nice to sit and have a bbq and a drink out there. We didn't end up using the hot tub but that looks great as well. What more can i say...friendly owners...great accommodation....lovely area...perfect!

Myself, boyfriend, my sister and her partner all visited The Swift Cottage over May bank holiday weekend - with our two dogs. We couldn't have wished for a better weekend! We were greeted on arrival, and shown around the beautifully furnished cottage - all brand new and beautifully finished. We chose the Swift Cottage simply on having it's own, private/fenced off garden - which worked better with us having the dogs. The kitchen was fully equipped with more than the basic essentials, the log burner supplied with plenty of wood/paper and lovely new bedding and towels. The hot-tub being 'shared' was far from an issue. Just a short walk across the courtyard to the summer house where you can hang a dressing gown/flip flops and jump in! It's on all year, so it's really warm - fantastic to watch the sun go down with a glass of bubbles...all to ourselves too! The area is very quiet, there's a walk through the woods just across the road from the Cottage, ideal to walk the dogs in a morning - or a short drive to many areas! The 4 of us really enjoyed our stay, and couldn't recommend it strongly enough! We look forward to returning in the summer :) thank you for having us!
