Overview

About the property

Calf Close Cottage is beautiful, spacious, bright and cosy in any weather.

Calf Close Cottage is situated at the edge of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This lovely rural single storey semi-detached cottage is beautiful, spacious, bright, cosy and well maintained.

Calf Close Cottage is set in the grounds of a 6-acre small holding. This roomy one bedroom self-catering cottage provides accommodation for two adults and one well behaved dog. An occasional couple with a small baby has also enjoyed a holiday here. The cottage offers plenty of room to relax after an active day outdoors and excellent facilities for cooking your meals should you choose to do so.

Super-king bed can be converted into twins on request. Baby travel cot is available on request. There is a good selection of books, CDs and DVDs if you decide to spend time curled up in front of the wood burning stove.

This holiday cottage is perfect for those looking for a romantic and peaceful retreat. It is also suitable for people requiring wheelchair access. A beautiful, large private fenced in garden allows for making the most of this idyllic area as well as keeping your canine friend safe.

About The Owner

I live with my family next door to the cottage, so am able to address any questions immediately, but otherwise stay out of the way. I am a glass artist working exclusively with recycled glass. You can see my work on my web site rakitacraft. I am also a small holder: we have a large fruit and vegetable garden and an orchard. We also keep chickens. As a welcome gift we leave our guests eggs laid by our lovely hens along with homemade jams produced with our own berries. We share seasonal veg surplus with our guest if they are interested.

The Owner purchased this bungalow in 2004

Why The Owner chose Brampton

We lived in big cities most of our lives, London being last and wanted to move to the countryside, grow our own food, enjoy hill walks and cycling.

What makes this bungalow unique

Calf Close Cottage is positioned conveniently for exploring a variety of destinations. Lake District National Park, Scottish Borders, Hadrian's Wall, Solway Firth and the city of Carlisle are all within easy driving distance. And the local fells are a well-kept secret. High moorland to the south of Farlam provides mile upon mile of rugged and lonely walking, or even mountain biking for the adventurous. More information is available on our web site.

Notes:
To the left of the cottage is a mown pasture which houses the chicken shed and enclosure. Beyond it is our vegetable and fruit gardens, the orchard which we planted in 2005 and Boon Hill Wood planted at the turn of this century. The guests are welcome to explore the property including the wood, but we ask that you do not enter the vegetable garden without our accompaniment, as we are concerned about rabbits getting in.
