    Thank you for your lovely feedback. Whilst guests are unable to park outside the cottage they can use the slip road to drop off/pick up but then the car would need to be parked in the car park as the slip road has to be kept clear for emergency vehicle access. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. David and Julia Property Owner

The property

Brampton 2.4 miles. Waters Edge is a charming, contemporary lodge settled into the countryside of Talkin near Brampton, with views across the Talkin Tarn and off-road parking. Waters Edge is an ideal base for a couple looking for a beautifully presented base in Cumbria. Park off-road and make your way over to this fantastic lodge, nestled into the grounds of the former Tarn End Hotel, and with views across the garden and towards a lake shrouded in mature trees; fall in love with the care taken to create this opulent abode. With cathedral ceilings threaded with wooden beams, wooden flooring throughout and natural hues within the décor, this tasteful open-plan living space urges guests to recline in the sitting area with a coffee and plan the day ahead of them in the ambient glow of the woodburning stove. Here, guests can rustle up a storm in the amply fitted kitchen, with blue cupboards and stylish white work tops, and your meal can be enjoyed as a romantic dinner for two at the glass dining table. The patio doors open up onto a patio and the garden beyond, affording a stunning view of the tranquil countryside as you enjoy a glass of your favourite beverage in the evening as the sun sets. When sleep calls, freshen up in a beautiful green bathroom, with a quirky roll-top copper bath, a shower, and well thought out furniture. The opulence of the property continues into the stunning bedroom, also outfitted with green décor, and with plenty of space for your belongings. This dreamy property is sure to inspire you to head outdoors, so follow the path from the property where guests can enjoy a slice of cake and a fresh coffee from Talkin Tarn Tea Rooms, browse the gift shops, and hire a kayak or canoe to explore Talkin Tarn.

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.
