Long Byres Holiday Cottages, Talkin Head, Brampton, Carlisle, Cumbria, CA8 1L
Long Byres Holiday Cottages offer 6 cosy and comfortable self-catering properties set in the north east of Cumbria in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. If you are looking for a unique rural getaway in a scenic and tranquil setting our accommodation is for you.
The cottages are set on a working hill farm and were converted from the traditional farm byres over 50 years ago. Each cottage has recently been refurnished to provide a more modern and comforting feeling. The farm itself is home to sheep, horses and many assorted birds and children are welcome to come and feed the animals in the yard.
We have six cottages, each with beautiful views across the fields and valley towards the Lake District and beyond. All cottages have central heating and double glazing and hot water is available all day. Bed linen and towels are provided and are inclusive in the price. Wi-fi is also available although due to the rural location the strength of signal cannot always be guaranteed. There is also a shared laundry room with washing machine, tumble dryer and ironing facilities. The kitchens are supplied with full-size cookers as well as microwaves.
Secure car parking is available and dogs and other pets are welcome but must be looked after all times. There is a shared garden which is available for all of the cottages.
Heather & Hawthorn Cottages - Both cottages have three bedrooms and sleeps 6/7 people. One master bedroom with en suite shower room and two other family rooms.

Heather Cottage has a balcony and a patio for eating out and Hawthorn Cottage has a patio.
Bracken & Bramble Cottages - Each has two ground floor bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with twin beds. The bathroom is also on the ground floor whilst upstairs is the kitchen/living/dining area with views over the fells.

The locality has much to entertain visitors with a huge range of attractions and activities available. These include the two UNESCO World Heritage Sites of the Lake District and Hadrains Wall. There is a diverse range of scenery and wildlife across the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the neighbouring RSPB Geltsdale nature reserve. For those interested in historical attractions these are numerous and include Carlisle Castle & Cathedral, Lanercost Priory and Lowther Castle. Many excellent local pubs and restaurants are present in the surrounding villages and towns, some of which are within walking distance. Talkin Tarn is excellent for boating, coarse fishing, walking and other water-based activities. Walby Farm Park is a multi-award winning farm park which provides excellent entertainment for all the family. Cycle hire is available locally, with many good routes across the fells on "green" roads.
