Holiday home
The Barn is a barn conversion on the owner's working farm in the hamlet of Milton near Brampton in Cumbria. The property sleeps six people in three bedrooms, comprising of a super king-size double with an en-suite, a king-size double with an en-suite and a final ground floor twin room. There is also a ground floor bathroom and an open plan living area with a kitchen, dining area and a sitting area with a woodburner. Outside is off road parking for two cars, a lawned garden with a patio and furniture and a hot tub. The Barn is ideal for a large family or couples to get away from it all and relax.

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.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

The Barn was absolutely delightful, really spacious and comfortable.. The owners were very helpful and friendly. Even going all out at 8pm Friday to sort out some gas for the BBQ when we needed. Two teenagers were super happy with their rooms own bathrooms and very importantly good WIFI

Lots of storage in the bedrooms.. Kitchen tap probably needs replacing. The kitchen sink area is very small - since the cottage sleeps 6 people the dishwasher is very compact so some washing up is inevitable, it was made difficult by the small sink & drainer. The kitchen was very well equipped though. Beds were very comfortable.

We loved the cosiness of the barn, the hot tub and we enjoyed the communal kitchen.. The barn is modern and exceptionally well equipped, spacious inside with a real homely feel.

The cottage is in a beautiful location on a working farm.. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. We would definitely go back for another visit. There were a few very minor niggles. For example, some of the paving slabs near the hot tub were very wobbly. Also the front door lock was very difficult to operate and needs a small adjustment. Neither of these were problems but I am pointing them out as they could be easily remedied and the owners may not even be aware of them.

Beautiful place.. So comfortable, we wanted to take the beds home. I could spend all day in the hot tub. Good location to go to see the lakes and to pop into Scotland

What an amazing place we will certainly be visiting again.. The corttage was amazing also the owners were so welcoming. The only thing i would recomend is a hover in the cottage as i had my dog there. Other than that fantastic place to stay.

Really lovely and relaxing weekend.. . owners were very helpful and we had everything we needed in the cottage. Very clean and beds very comfy! We had some bad rain/wind so the log burner came in handy to keep us warm and the garden was great for my dog as nice and big and enclosed. Would definitely stay again, highly recommended :-) only down side is pub/shop not in walking distance.

Everything was brilliant.. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The only thing that was missing was a pub in walking distance and unless you want to travel a few miles, there was nowhere to eat out on a Sunday. With that said, I would still highly recommend, especially for the price.

We’ve just returned from a beautiful stay in Cumbria! Our cottage was absolutely perfect, it had everything we needed and more! It was much larger than the pictures showed and we loved it so much we didn’t want to leave! We wouldn’t hesitate to book this cottage or with Sykes again.

The owners were very friendly people, and although very busy farmers with lambing taking place, always had time to talk, and show our grandchild the farm and let him sit in a tractor.. He also bottle fed some lambs. The owner had no issues with us exercising the dog down their farm lane at the back of the cottage / farm. The view from one of the bedroom windows was very good. Within 2 minutes walk of the cottage is Milton rig wood, our dog loved it! If you enjoy the rural environment which farmers maintain you will enjoy a stay at this cottage

Cottage was beautiful, clean and owners were very nice, pleasant and sorted any issues out.. It was a very nice break which all the family enjoyed. I would highly recommend the barn cottage to any family, couple or group. Beds very comfy and bedroom was very clean. Plenty of space for us which was 6 adults, 2 teenagers and a Labrador. Showers was ok and the fire was lush. Hot tub was a great fun.

The weathe was bitterly cold but sunny interspersed with hailstones but thanks to the warmth and comfort of the barn we had a great week. Every comfort was there, good settees, good tv, super beds, good cooker, excellent bathroom facilitiesa and a helpful farmer`s wife who had information if you wanted to take it. Yes, the kitchen alarm went off once but we had burnt toast! and when the farm was busy we just half-closed the long blinds in the kitchen to make it more private and to stop our dogs having a bark, but the room was still bright and pleasant. Parking was outside the door in the farmyard and at first when you drive in it looks a little off putting because everyone else is parking outside their cottages too. Maybe in the busy summer period this could be a problem but we found it ok. the enclosed garden was excellent , safe for dogs and children and pleasant to have a coffee outside. The hot-tub wasn`t our cup of tea so we just ignored it. We hope to return later this year.

BAD POINTS - Fire alarm goes off all the time!, can't understand why it's fitted in kitchen!!!!! - Not much privacy, people peering over fence & in windows. - Old man kept coming into back garden to check on a hot tub which we had no idea was being put in our garden during our stay!, so on one of the days had fitters wandering past our windows, in our garden & in house!, new hot tub took half our seating area up......wasn't informed it was being put in prior to our holiday! - Kettle didn't work but was replaced. - Front door very temperamental. - Bedside draw full of old sweets & sweet wrappers from previous holiday makers! - Not that peaceful or private. - Parking a bit higgildy pilgaldy. - Owners not very helpful or respectful. GOOD POINTS - Nicely set out house. - Great en-suites in each room. - comfy beds. - Great views from garden. - Pretty woodland walk close by. - Great accommodation for dogs. - Great place for visiting local areas. - Value for money. - Clean apart from bedside draw! - Spacious. - Lovely log burner. - Holiday agents customer services very supportive.

Delighted with cottage and owners.. Much better than previous experience with Sykes. Could not have asked for more comfort or facilities. Mabel was helpful but not intrusive. We would like to visit again which really says it all.

The owners were really nice people. It was a really peaceful cottage. Very close to Hadrian's Wall and other attractions. The cottage itself was perfect for our requirements. We will be returning and I have already recommended the cottages to friends and relatives.

The garden at The Barn is brilliant, fit children or dogs - enclosed and well laid out. All rooms had their own bathroom which were great sizes.

The cottage was lovely and cosy, the owners were also very friendly and helpful. It snowed whilst we were there making the views even more beautiful.
