Why David Jackson chose Carlisle & North Cumbria

This property was previously a gentleman's residence and latterly became a school. It was refurbished in 2000 to become a family home. Since moving from Spain years ago, we needed a property big enough for our ever growing family. This was perfect!

What makes this cottage unique

**Midweek Promotion** Limited period only** Book Now! Pay for 3 nights and Stay for 4**. 12/06/17-11/08/17

The property's main feature is it's central position in the town. Everything is a stones throw away and yet inside you are a world away from outside. There are many original period features with stunning fireplaces and a magnificent oak ceiling adorns much of the ground floor.

The garden can also be claimed as amazing. the children have huge areas to run around and electric automated gates keep them secure from the outside world. The hot tub and sauna and enclosed private heated courtyard which are new additions must be seen to be appreciated.

What a fantastic house. It was very well equipped and spotlessly clean. There was lots of space inside and out. The house is handy for everything in this market town. We had lovely weather and managed to explore the surrounding countryside by foot and cycle. All in all a great week

Fantastic home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

6 adults and 4 young children stayed here for 4 nights. Our group ranged in age from 1 year old to over 60s and we all had an amazing time. A great location for exploring not only the local area, but further afield too. The only problem is that you dont want to leave the house to go anywhere! Great communication with the home owner too who sorted out an inital problem with the Wi-Fi. We will definitely be going back to Sycamore Gap. Loved, loved, loved it!

Family friendly house

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed over the bank holiday weekend and had a wonderful time. The house is perfect for large groups we all had more than enough room and the hot tub/spa area was a huge hit.

Owner's Response: Hi, It really sounds like you have all had a lovely break at The Sycamore Gap and we are glad that we managed to contribute towards that.The kitchen/diner is our favourite room too in the house. There is nothing better than being able to include the chefs in with all the chatter when dining and we designed this room with this in mind. We look forward to seeing you all back again soon and thank you very much for your review. Dave & Fi

"Beautiful house in a lovely location"

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely week staying in this beautiful house for my dads 70th birthday. It was perfect for our family gathering and thoroughly enjoyed by us all. The house was more spacious than we anticipated and very clean. There was plenty to do locally in the surrounding area to please each and every one of us from the 3 year old to the 70 year old. Ideal for people who like walking and history or just relaxing. Very close to Hadrian's wall, Birdoswald fort and Talking Tarn and around 40 mins from Keswick. The hot tub in the courtyard and the children's play area and Sky television were all big bonus points for our family too due to the age range. We had lovely experiences within the village, everyone was very friendly at local shops, pubs and cafes and we couldn't recommend this property more! We hope to return one day soon.

Owner's Response: Hi Rianna, It is lovely to hear what an amazing time you all had at The Sycamore Gap and thank you for sharing it with us. I agree with you, Brampton is such a lovely, friendly town and the locals love to meet holiday makers and make them feel welcome. One of our aims with the holiday cottage is to have a little something for all ages. From toys and the wii to books and travel information, we want everyone to have a holiday to remember. We are glad you found the perfect destination to celebrate and look forward to welcoming you back soon. Dave & Fi

We are located very close to Hadrian's Wall with many forts to be visited just a few minutes drive away. These can also be walked to. The Border City of Carlisle with it's majestic castle is a place not to be missed. Gretna Green has its famous shopping outlet, recently extended and of course is the most popular place in the world to be married. This too is a short 15 minute away.
