About Mrs Gillian Stuart
Duncan was born in Threlkeld & Gillian in Newlands. Duncan is a builder by trade and I worked on the family dairy & sheep farm before raising our daughter & son, helping on building projects then running the holiday lets at Bram Cragg from 1993. Duncan, since fell running, is a keen mountain biker a sport that has taken our family all over the UK. Gillian has been taking part in local dog agility events since 2006. Any spare time and we walk the fell tops with our dogs & family.
Mrs Gillian Stuart purchased this Cottage in 1993
Why Mrs Gillian Stuart chose Allerdale District
Bram Cragg Farm being owned & loved by Gillians grandparents since 1974 and has been in our controle since 1993 and ownership from 2008. We renovated & developed it until 2014 with Duncan using his 35 years of building expertise & family help to make it the holiday choice of many returning guests. You can't help but fall in love with the setting of Bram Cragg set among the fells in a sceinic valley. The 50 acre of land is now stocked with our neighbourghs quality limousan breeding beef cattle and swaledale or cheviot breeding sheep from April to October and we maintain the land all the year round.
What makes this Cottage unique
Bram Cragg Farm looks unchanged with the oldest part dating from 1688. Buildings were added as dairy and sheep farming grew and mining, railways and reservoirs expanded the population. We have been allowed to develop the byre and hay loft above to provide holiday accommodation with lovely views and we replaced two existing static caravans with two larger modern lodges. These have more comfort and space for up to four guests, more privacy for all guests but with open unrestricted views of fells & fields.
