The Dairy description

Holiday home
The Dairy is a stone built semi detached cottage on a working farm in the rural hamlet of Milton, two miles from the market town of Brampton in the Lake District. This all ground floor cottage sleeps four people and has two bedrooms, consisting of one double and one twin bedroom, as well as a family bathroom. The cottage also has an open plan living area with fitted kitchen, dining area and sitting area with woodburner. To the outside of this cottage there is ample off road parking, shared use of gardens and a decked balcony area with furniture and BBQ. The Dairy is perfect for a romantic break or family holiday, in a lovely rural area.

Milton is a small rural village, which is perfectly placed to visit Hadrian's Wall and the Lake District National Park. Just two miles away is the market town of Brampton, and close by is the Talkin Tarn Country Park, which is well worth a visit. An ideal location for exploring this wonderful area.

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.

The cottage was lovely, living and kitchen area much bigger than the pictures showed. It is an ideal place for walking with the dog. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. There is a shared use of hot tub to relax in. We hope to go back later in the year.

Very good accommodation within close vicinity to walks along Hadrians Wall. Brampton has a variety of shops and inns, a must visit is the antique centre.
Miss Harwood
August 2011
The cottage was in a lovely rural location and was large and comfortably furnished. The owners provided those extra touches which were very much appreciated - tea, coffee, sugar, milk, and a welcoming bottle of wine. They were friendly and polite, and have worked hard on the conversion of the farm buildings and the grounds. I'm sure other holidaymakers will enjoy the addition of the hot-tub.

loved the cottage great layout the woodburner and hot tub are the icing on the cake Owners only to happy to help Good location a wonderful xmas was had by all including isszy the dog
January 2014
Fantastic welcome, owner there to meet us with the wood burner burning, the cottage felt so warm on a cold and damp day. Lovely cottage, the barn has been converted very tastefully. It has the added bonus of a hot tub which is so welcoming after a day out walking. Although near to a main road it was it did not detract from a lovely stay. Not too far from fabulous walks, owner was happy to suggest places to visit, although lots of leaflets to help. Loved it there and would definitely return.

Just got back had a lovely relaxing few days away. The Dairy is a beautiful cottage the owner was lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
April 2012
We wanted a few days away with our 7 month old daughter and our two labradors before I went back to work. The Cottage was lovely and comfy and the woodburner in the open plan living / kitvhen/ dining area was loved by all. The dogs loved Milton Woods and we loved the hot-tub especially as the baby monitor still worked at the bottom of the garden where it is located. The milk and wine on arrival were a lovely touch.
September 2011
A warm welcome from the cottage owners. Ideal for a quiet holiday, plenty of walks whether in woodland, the nearby adrian's Wall. Located within easy reach of the North Lakes, The Borders or Northumberland. The cottage had everything we needed including those little extras - tea coffee and milk, and a welcoming bottle of wine. A little more local information would have been appreciated - details of pubs / restaurants.
