About David Jackson

David and Fiona have been together for 17 years. David is originally from Carlisle, whilst Fiona is from the small island of Tiree in the Hebrides.

We have 6 Children, Lauren is 25, Danielle is 20, Lewis is 17, Joshua is 9, Tilli is 5 and last but not least, Alexa-Rose is 3!! Its always a full house at ours!

David's main job has always been in news paper printing until recently and Fiona enjoyed Teaching primary school children before her own came along. Lauren now enjoys being a office manager for the financial services whist Danielle works full time for the family guest house Business. Lewis has just done amazingly with his GCSE's gaining 10A*s and the rest are tiddlers at primary school enjoying a care free life.

David Jackson purchased this cottage in 2010

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

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.

Would highly recommend this property and we will definitely be returning.

Fabulous House - Ideal for a Family Get-Together

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the house on 21st December 2016 for a family Christmas get-together. On arrival we were absolutely delighted with the tasteful standard of the decor and furnishings, in addition to which it was beautifully decorated with Christmas trimmings. There were 12 of us altogether plus 2 dogs (age range from 80 to 20) and there was plenty of room for sleeping, leisure and car parking. The owners have really thought about everything and we felt very much at home. The house is very warm and cosy. The hot tub and sauna were amazing.

Dave, the owner, called in to see us on our second day to check that we were happy with everything – which we were. He is so friendly and explained the history of the house to us, which was very interesting

The village of Brampton is beautiful. Lovely shops and nice cosy pubs. The Scotch Arms pub across the road from the house is lovely.

There is a lovely walk in some woods just 5 minutes from the House and a short drive away we found Hadrian’s Wall and walked to the Sycamore Tree with stunning views of the countryside.

If you book this beautiful house you won’t be disappointed!

Will definitely be returning and recommending it to others.

Brilliant family holiday

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic homely house with plush large bedrooms and a large kitchen where all the family (14 of us) could enjoy an early Christmas dinner. The kids loved every minute and the hot tub was a treat. Dave was brilliant and we would love to stay again in the future.

An Excellent House for a get together.

  • 5 of 5

The house is generously proportioned with large rooms and a fabulously well equipped kitchen. I was looking for a house that we could all meet up at and people could could come and go throughout the weekend. This house had something for everyone, somewhere to chill, somewhere to party and somewhere to reflect. Perfect! I am sure we will return in the future.
