Milton holiday cottages are a stone’s throw from the Pennines and Hadrian’s Wall. Milton is a rural hamlet just outside the market town of Brampton, in Cumbria. It consists of several stone-built homes and farm-buildings, most of which stand on the road between Brampton and Kirkhouse, by the banks of Milton Beck. Surrounded by rugged countryside, it is a peaceful base for exploring the region. Within a few miles of the hamlet, many historic sites can be visited, including Naworth Castle, Lanercost Castle, and Pike Signal Tower and Hare Hill at Hadrian’s Wall. Milton is set amid the rolling countryside of the Irthing Valley and Geltsdale, where many scenic walking routes can be enjoyed. A couple of miles from your Milton holiday cottage in Cumbria, footpaths and bridleways can be found in Gelt Wood, Rowbank Wood and Talkin Tarn.
Take in all the majesty of the North Cumbria countryside with a stay at The Stable, a romantic farm cottage for couples located in the rural hamlet of Milton near Brampton. Explore Hadrian’s Wall and The Lake District. Pets welcome.

Self-catering holidays in Milton would be incomplete without a wander around the neighbouring market town of Brampton. A variety of shops can be found in and around Main Street and Mainside, where there are some great places to eat and drink, including Bistro 34, Mr Brown’s, and the Nag’s Head. There are many historical landmarks to look out for, including Martin’s Church, which features spectacular stained-glass windows. In the heart of Brampton, octagonal Moot Hall was built in 1817 and now houses a tourist information centre. Sandy beaches in the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Northumberland National Park are close enough for day trips from Milton. A short drive from Milton, Hadrian’s Wall was built to protect the northwest frontier of the Roman Empire and stretches for 73 miles from coast to coast. A visit to the ancient city of Carlisle, with its imposing castle and a tumultuous history in which to delve, is also recommended.
