Fabulous last minute find.
We only decided to go away two weeks before we went so we were really pleased to find 'Hadrians View' available. I'll be honest and say we'd normally not have looked at this place as there were only two oof us with two small dogs so we normally stay at one bedroomed places but it came up in a listing and i fell in love with it. The photos and listing do not do this place justice. It has the most amazing uninterupted views across the river Irthing Valley and although you can see the train line and A69 you cannot hear them as they are so far away. It really is the most peaceful place - the hamlet probably has about 10 to 20 houses and the only people we met were our hosts and other visitors to the area. There isn't a shop or pub very close by, which was perfect for us as we just wanted to chill and the cottage definitely allowed us to do that. However Brampton isn't too far away if you really feel the need for either. There were some great shops selling local produce. The cottage has everything you can imagine you would need - we honestly had no complaints. It's a barn conversion but it's been done to a very high standard and there is a real fire - we only needed this on for one night and it is very cosy when it's lit. Elizabeth is also an amazing host - we had cream scones waiting for us in the fridge on our arrival with a bottle of wine chilling! We'll definitely be back!

The view from the house was to die for, it was an absolute gem of a house. The coal fire made it so much more homely. Had a great time and will return again, if the owner will have us.

Very homely and cosy and in a lovely setting. We would definitely recommend.

The Perfect Cumbrian Cottage
A stunning position looking South across Rolling Open Countryside towards Geltsdale on the horizon. A characterful cottage with an open fire and an immediate sense of home. Then there is the practicalities. With a family of four and a dog to feed the kitchen is well up to it. A boot room for the coats and walking shoes and toddler equipment, crockery is good quality and plentiful, the kitchen utensils and equipment enough to cook a large family meal and there are two separate rooms for either showering or a bath. We went out walking on many trails just outside the door or twenty minutes away. Hadrain's Wall (Three sections) Talkin Tarn, Gelt Wood, and a circular track in the lee of Geltsdale. All with good signage and stunning quiet locations or gently family friendly. I cooked every night and had a Waitrose drop for the big shop and then fresh vegetables (Fruits and Roots), fresh bread (Routledges) Organic (Wholefoods) and superb meat from (Cranstons) all in Brampton. The people all real (quiet and friendly) Geordie/Cumbrians. The Co Op cleverly covers the supermarket base with upmarket offerings as well as the basics. The weather was perfect all week after a poor summer but the cottage would work after a cold and windy day walking just as much as an end of day to an Indian Summer. Your hosts Mr & Mrs Harding run a well oiled operation and you arrive to fresh flowers/fresh scones with cream and jam and the chance to have a cuppa before you unload. Congratulations on a superb offer.

Absolutely stunning
This is a perfect place to base your visit to the wall and the lakes. Photos do not do this place justice. Not only is it quaint and quiet but it has everything you need including evening entertainment. (You are in the middle of knowhere) Elizabeth was welcoming and had left some essentials for us so a cup of tea could be had before going in search of food. The place was clean and tidy, with sheets and towells provided whi h is always a bonus. Many places are walkable and carlise is only a short drive away. I wish I could have stayed longer.
