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, Swift Cottage is one of six stone built cottages 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. The North Pennines are equally accessible, this area is justly described as "England's Last Wilderness" and righty designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Part of this area is the RSPB Geltsdale Reserve, it is home to black grouse, birds of prey and breeding wading birds. It is ideal for walking with 4 way-marked trails, a parking area and a visitor centre. The market town of Brampton is just 2 miles with a good range of shops and amenities, whilst the Border City of Carlisle is just 10 miles. There are many footpaths and bridleways nearby including Gelt Woods and Talkin Tarn Country Park just 3 miles where you can enjoy sailing, rowing, fishing or relax with a picnic.
