This semi detached cottage is on a working livestock farm in the rural hamlet of Milton, close to the town of Brampton in the Lake District and sleeps four people in two bedrooms.

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.


Fantastic location to get out walking with the dog. Ideally situated to explore Northumberland, north Pennines, the north lakes and Scotland. The owner is very friendly and knowledgable about where to visit and was happy to help when we ran out of firewood (?4 charge per additional bag of logs). The cottage itself was very comfortable and well equipped which made it feel very homely. There is a ?40 charge per week for use of the shared hot tub which me and my boyfriend were initially more than to pay as we knew we would be doing lots of walking and it would be a great way to relax after a day out on our feet. However we discovered that very few of the jets actually work and the ones that do work don't seem to be working correctly. We only ended up using the hot tub twice and we felt that at ?40 a week, better maintenance of the hot tub wouldn't be too much of an ask. The only other slight annoyance would be that in the ceiling above the main bedroom, there is something nesting in the roof - we were unsure if birds or mice but whatever they were they make a terrible racket early in the morning. This wasn't too much of a problem as we got up early most days anyway but on the couple of days we wanted a lie in (we were on holiday after all!) this was made almost impossible by the noise they were making. Overall we had a brilliant week and we would stay on this site again (albeit in a different cottage and we would leave the hot tub!)

The cottage we stayed in was beautiful! The online photos didn't do it justice! It was a relaxed, peaceful stay. Just what I needed!

The owner was lovely and friendly. Hot tub was a great addition to the cottage and was a fab luxury! Cottage was spotless and we will be back soon!
Miss Bailey

The Dairy was beautifully furnished, lovely large living area, much bigger than expected, great position to access many local sights, Talkin Tarn country park was fabulous, particularly as it was only the cost to park, great walks for the dog!! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.
Mrs Bunch

The hot tub was fantastic and the location was perfect for the nice relaxing holiday that we wanted. It was also pet friendly, the owner was lovely when she met our dog. Would definitely return.
