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.
Owner purchased this Bungalow in 2004
Why 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.

Lovely peaceful cottage with a home from home feel.
Very easy and straightforward.
Very peaceful holiday
Lovely owners and property. Very quiet. Had a lovely relaxing time. Would recommend again.
The peace, lovely country garden with so many birds, and walks from the door along country lanes with beautiful views and lovely sunsets, make this a real country retreat. It’s in a great place for exploring Hadrian’s Wall and other sights.
All round very nice experience. Spacious dog friendly accommodation in a lovely location that includes a great walk on the doorstep around a pretty Tarn. Very enjoyable stay and an excellent location for forays into Northumberland and Scotland. The owner was very pleasant and accommodating. I would recommend this property to all dog lovers.
Peaceful and roomy
We enjoyed our stay at Calf Close Cottage very much. The cottage was very spacious and had everything we needed. The eggs and homemade jam left by the host was a lovely welcome gift. There was a lovely selection of books to read and also the information about the local area and things to do was very useful. We loved the wood burner even if we did feel a tad warm as it heated up nicely! We thought £8 was a bit steep to replenish the wood so we found a place and bought our own bag of wood. The garden was very spacious and secure for our dogs and they enjoyed having a run and sniff about. There was also a country park about a mile from the property which we had a lovely wander round. We would definitely return.
Wonderful location and cottage was perfect
Pictures on web site do not do this cottage justice, very spacious and cosy, location was perfect for us, we wanted peace and quiet and it was. Owner nwxt door but only saw her when we went to her. We book a cottage each year and this is the only one so far I would return to.
Thank you for coming to stay at Calf Close Cottage, Maria. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We would love to welcome you back.
