Situated on a working farm in the village of Milton close to the Northumbrian and Cumbrian border, nestling in the foothills of the North Pennines, The Stable, The Byre and The Dairy are a row of three stone built cottages and Swallow, Swift, The Barn and The Hayloft Cottages are all skilfully converted from farm buildings and an old dairy. During the restoration many original features like beamed ceilings and exposed stonework have been carefully retained. The cottages provide a superb base from which to explore this region. Here you will find wild fells, stunning views and peaceful walks under big skies. Hadrian's Wall is nearby with the forts of Birdoswald, Housesteads and Vindolanda all within a short drive.

It is ideal for walking with 4 way-marked trails, a parking area and a visitor centre.
