Cosy cottage with wood burner in a rural setting, enjoying lovely walks and cycle routes from the doorstep. Only 4 miles from the pretty market town of Brampton with local shops, pubs and restaurants.

Sitting in a glorious rural location between the North Pennines, the Lake District National Park and the Solway Coast, this lovely cottage in a quaint complex of properties sleeps four people across two bedrooms and is an excellent accommodation option for small families or groups of friends who love to explore. Spend your days hiking along the largest Roman monument in Europe (Hadrian’s Wall) or contemplating the wide-open vistas of the Solway Coast, and your evenings enjoying a glass of wine in the cottage’s courtyard or warming your toes by its wood burner.

Step inside this single-storey cottage and you’ll find yourself in a welcoming open-plan lounge/kitchen. With its high ceilings, exposed beams and cosy wood burner, you’re sure to feel right at home. Get busy cooking up some dinner, which you can enjoy at the stylish breakfast bar. After dinner, take a seat in the private enclosed courtyard and crack open a bottle of wine, or head to the front garden to spot the local wildlife in the hedgerows. Alternatively, head indoors to warm your toes by the crackling wood burner in the lounge and catch up on your favourite TV shows. At the end of the day, you’ll find two spacious bedrooms just off the living area – a double and a bunk bedroom.

Head into the historic city of Carlisle for the day (10 miles) to visit the 11th-century castle and Tullie House Museum, which houses artefacts from Hadrian’s Wall. Or make your way to Birdoswald Roman Fort (10.5 miles), where you can see the longest continuous stretch of the wall itself. Or head to Gretna Green (13 miles) to visit the Famous Blacksmith’s Shop, browse the high-end stores in the shopping centre and get lost in the Courtship Maze.

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages.
