All ground floor. Two bedrooms: 1 x double with en-suite shower, basin and WC, 1 x twin. Bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC. Open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area with woodburner.
Ideally placed for exploring northern Cumbria, the hamlet of Milton is close to all of the region's most popular attractions including Hadrians Wall, the Solway Firth coast and the Lake District National Park. The nearby market town of Brampton dates back to the Roman occupation, and shows evidence of attacks from Scottish border raiders and Jacobite uprisings. Apparently, the Scottish Bonnie Prince Charlie established his headquarters in one of the old buildings in Brampton, now a shop. Just a few miles away is Talkin Tarn Country Park, covering 180 acres - 65 of which make up the Tarn, a 10,000 year old glacial lake, fed by underwater springs. Slightly further south is Gelt Woods, an ancient forest along the banks of the River Gelt.

Reviews for Swallow Cottage
Swallow Cottage was exactly as described, and exceeded our expectations. It was immaculately clean and very well equipped. Literally everything we needed was provided. The surroundings of the cottage were peaceful and perfect, we found plenty of walks around Milton, directly from the cottage. The lady was very welcoming and was able to provide us with plenty of local information. We spent a wonderful week at Swallow Cottage and would be happy to recommend it to anyone. Thank you!
