    “The cottage was clean, well maintained and well equipped with everything we needed and more.”

    The beds were comfortable and the cottage was warm and homely. Our only negative was the church bells that go through the night. Not great if you are a light sleeper.

The property

Nestled in the market town of Brampton in Cumbria on the fringes of the Lake District National Park and close to Hadrian’s Wall Path is Herdwick Cottage. This beautifully presented cottage is just a five-minute stroll into the centre of Brampton and is an ideal base for walkers and families exploring Cumbria and the Scottish Borders. After a busy day hiking, cycling, or wandering, kick off your walking boots before sinking into one of the plush velvet green sofas and flicking on the Smart TV; give your feet a rest and unwind here before preparing dinner in the fully equipped kitchen/diner. The rustic wooden dining table is a good space for five to dine together, maybe with a glass of wine or perhaps wander onto the patio surrounded by a pretty garden with the sound of the church clock of St Martin’s. When sleep calls, retire to any of the bedrooms: there is a king size double, a twin and a single room all serviced by a sleek modern bathroom. Brampton offers a range of amenities including friendly pubs, Berry’s Tearoom, Cranston’s Foodhall, farm shop and gift shops. Spend the day exploring the historic and beautiful Lanercost Priory close to Hadrian’s Wall; walk around the stunning Talkin Tarn; visit some of the many historic sites such as Birdoswald Roman Fort, or maybe wander in the beautiful and ancient Miltonrigg Woods. All these are within a ten-mile radius of Brampton. The Pennine Way is an amazing long-distance trail only half an hour’s drive away within the North Pennines AONB and The Lake District National Park is filled with walks and trails where you can experience yet more breath-taking countryside of Cumbria. Choose Herdwick Cottage as your base for a relaxing countryside retreat to Brampton, Cumbria.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Carlisle 10 miles.

The market town of Brampton is the ideal base for exploring Hadrian’s Wall. The town boasts a rich and colourful history going back to the Roman occupation, Border reivers from Scotland and the Jacobite uprisings, plus bonnie Prince Charlie established his headquarters in one of the old buildings in Brampton. In the centre of the town is Moot Hall, which was built in 1817, and now houses the Tourist Information Centre, and there is a large motte to the east of the town, which is 135 feet high and has the statue of the 7th Earl of Carlisle on it. A few miles outside Brampton is Talkin Tarn Country Park. It covers 120 acres of farmland and woodland, 65 of which make up the Tarn, a 10,000 year old glacial lake, fed by underwater springs. Two miles away is Gelt Woods, which is an ancient woodland and RSPB nature reserve and has the River Gelt running through it. Brampton is a wonderful base for exploring this historic and scenic area.
