Advice on Cottage Holidays in Brampton
Rent a self-catering cottage, apartment or log cabin in Brampton for an enjoyable holiday. Brampton is a market town in Cumbria, located about 10 miles from Carlisle. It’s a fascinating place for those interested in Roman history and you can see sections of Hadrian’s Wall close by. Many visitors enjoy walking or cycling along the historic wall.
In the town itself, there are interesting buildings including Moot Hall, which was designed as an octagon and built in 1817. It now serves as the town’s Tourist Information Centre. The Moot Hall also hosts the farmers market, which takes place every month on the final Saturday, with the exception of December. Friendly stallholders sell their locally produced vegetables, meat, honey, cakes and so on.
Sandstone went into the construction of St. Martin’s Church (built 1874-1878), noted for its stained glass windows designed by the well-known Pre-Raphaelite artist, Sir Edward Burne-Jones. A statue of Emperor Hadrian stands nearby.
Birdoswald Roman Fort has substantial remains and there is lots of wildlife to see. Interactive exhibits and artefacts are available in the visitor centre and the tea room serves refreshments.
If you want to enjoy being active in rural Cumbria, the Talkin Tarn Country Park is only two miles away and comprises a glacial tarn, meadows, farmland and woodland. It’s a lovely site for walks of varying distances, one of which is a leisurly circular path, which is family friendly and measures 1.3 miles. A gift shop and a tea room are housed in the old boathouse. If you want to set your family a challenge, there is a numeracy trail and an orienteering course to follow.
More walking in lovely surroundings is possible in Gelt Woods, also two miles away. These woods are an RSPB nature reserve and they are also of historic interest. A rock bears an inscription dating back to the 3rd century, which was inscribed by a Roman soldier.
For more up to date entertainment, Brampton is the location for the Stepping Stones Music Festival. First held in 2012, another festival for 2013 has been announced and it looks like turning into an annual event. Well-known folk singer, Maddy Prior, is set to appear. A series of concerts will attract the crowds plus arts and crafts, a ceilidh, workshops, poetry readings, an international food market and a funfair.
History, long walks and traditional culture against a background of lovely countryside make this part of Cumbria popular with nature lovers, lovers of the outdoors and families.
