This stone-built, mid-terrace, single-storey cottage in the rural, Cumbrian village of Milton sleeps four people in two bedrooms.

Swift Cottage is a stone-built, mid-terrace, single-storey barn conversion, on the owners' working livestock farm, in the rural village of Milton, just two miles from the market town of Brampton. This cottage sleeps four people in two bedrooms, consisting of one double with en-suite shower and one twin, as well as a bathroom. The cottage also has an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area with woodburning stove. Outside there's off road parking for two cars, a lawned garden with patio and furniture and shared use of a summerhouse and hot tub. Swift Cottage is a convenient base for exploring both the Lake District and Northumberland.


We have just come back from a brilliant one weeks stay at Swift Cottage, cannot fault it at all. It was very spacious and clean, sometimes the images on line show accommodation in a better light, however, this was even better than we expected. The enclosed garden was fantastic for our two dogs to run around in when we weren't out walking with them in the field on the farm. The kitchen was really well equipped and with plenty of everything, the dishwasher was a real bonus! The hot tub was a great place for all of us to chill out, whatever the weather, a brilliant extra. The location was great too, very peaceful, but not far from Hadrian's wall, lots of lovely villages, and only 10 miles from Carlisle too! Last, but not least, the owners were very helpful and always on hand if we needed them. Would recommend to anyone who wants a great place for a relaxing break, and we look forward to going back ourselves.

Lovely cottage, wonderful owners and a superb location. Everything was available that we could want. The parking right in front of the accommodation was very handy. Everything was perfect.
Mrs Hawes

We particularly liked the peace and quiet in this luxurious accommodation. Owner was lovely and non intrusive. Swift cottage was just what we needed excellent, can't speak highly enough about our break.
Mrs Holland

Excellent value
This cottage was superb, everything you want for a relaxing, peaceful, luxurious break. Owners were so welcoming and friendly and were not intrusive during our stay. Great value for money, only issue was weather which is totally out with the owners control, unfortunately
