This romantic terrace cottage in the village of Milton is able to sleep two people, making it the perfect romantic hideaway.

This lovely stone-built mid terrace cottage is located on a working livestock farm in the rural hamlet of Milton. Situated just two miles from Brampton, this cottage is a careful renovation of one of the old farm buildings. Retaining original beams and exposed stonework, this welcoming property features a cosy lounge with adjacent summer room, a small modern kitchen, and a pretty main bedroom, making this an ideal romantic retreat.

Guests can also enjoy the decked balcony, with its fabulous countryside views.


Stayed in the small cottage 'The Stable' 2 adults and dog Excellent little place to stay. The cottage is perfect size for a couple. Clean, warm, well equipped and welcoming. Great location for exploring the area, Gretna 25 mins away, Carlisle 15 mins away, hadrians wall 20 mins away. Will definitely be returning for a break in the summer!

Dove Cottage, but in same place as this cottage
Basic base for sleeping and exploring the area, nothing special about this at all. Curtain tie backs hanging off the wall, and coming out of the wall at times. No vacuum cleaner, fence nearly falling down in the garden. Absolute nothing to do anywhere near this place. No paths to wall on, to take the dog for a walk. Garden not private (still dog mess from the previous canine occupant). Located on a working farm, so farmer and tractor constantly going backwards and forwards near to garden. Owner say you can take your dog down to the field, but to do this, you have to walk past farm sheepdogs, half hanging out of what looks like very small, rough kennels (did not even look large enough to be classed as kennels), which I found upsetting. Not particularly friendly owners. Would not go back, and would not recommend. Photos on Sykes are misleading.

Fantastic cottage
We stayed as a couple in the Stable Cottage in Milton near Brampton, Cumbria for 4 days 3 nights with small dog and use of the hot tub in February 2017. Its was clean, and well kept, very friendly owners, perfect location for Brampton and Carlisle. We had a wonderful time would definitely recommend.

The owners were very friendly and informative about the surrounding area and were always on hand if you needed anything. The cottage had more than expected and was very homely and comfy. We had a very relaxed and enjoyable 3 nights and we are already looking to see when we can go back.
Mrs Thwaite

Lovely little cottage, good for a couple. Nice hot tub and friendly owners. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting places; Coniston Water especially, however we are happy drivers and although there is things to do not too far from the cottage some of the main lakes and attractions are a good hour away.
