Occupying a peaceful location in the Cumbrian countryside, this picture-postcard thatched cottage is the ideal romantic bolthole for couples. With far-reaching views in every direction, pull on your walking boots and head off for a long, relaxing walk amongst the stunning scenery. Or perhaps you’d prefer to grab your book and relax in the award-winning garden? It’s the ideal spot for stargazing on a clear evening. Despite the rural tranquillity, you’re only 4.5 miles from the charming market town of Brampton with its shops and eateries.
Although it’s a quintessentially English thatched cottage from the outside, stepping inside you’ll find a sympathetically restored interior with contemporary fixtures and fittings and touches of French country chic. The well-equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar is on the ground floor, as is the contemporary shower room. Heading upstairs, you’ll find the romantic open-plan suite with a stylish bedroom leading off from the lounge. Outside, the garden, which is part of the National Garden Scheme, is packed with interesting features. The private seating area is a perfect spot for soaking up the countryside sounds.
Situated close to the Scottish border, you’re nestled between some rich and varied landscapes including heather-clad moors, peatlands, winding rivers and lush green valleys. To the north-east there’s the Northumberland National Park, to the south-west is the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, to the south is the Lake District National Park, and heading west, you’ll find the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The area is also rich in history with Hadrian’s Wall only 5 miles away. Or if you fancy eloping, Gretna Green (12 miles) is just over the border.
