This is a wonderful place and the cottages provide ample room for couples/families. I have taken my mum and her two dogs to Long Byres cottages for nearly seven years for a break away. The cottages are clean and tidy have everything that you will need during your stay. My mum is disabled and so the downstairs bedroom with ensuite bathroom is ideal for her. The kitchen is very large and has all the usual equipment, however we always order Harriet's food which is cooked fresh every night and brought to your door. If you stay here you must try her food. It is wonderful with a nice choice of meals and after a long day it makes such a change than slaving over the stove.
The views are amazing and the amount of animals on the farm let alone around the area is wonderful. The owners can't do enough to make you feel welcome and even let us look around the farm. We went on a walk with Harriet a ferret, a cat and her dog. We also met the animals in and around the farm and as long as you ask first, everyone is always so happy to sort out your requests. Well behaved dogs are made very welcome and ours always come back exhausted from all the great walks.
You are only a few minutes from some lovely walks (just turn left out of the door, past the car park and you can head off into the hills). Brampton village has shops for you to purchase any groceries and Carlisle is only 20 mins away.
This is a must if you love quiet areas, walking, gorgeous scenary and animals.
