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.

Amazing fantastic holiday

Amazing fantastic holiday. Amazing house, very clean, modern, really well equipped for all ages. And no request was too much for the owners

We would definitely stay again

In addition to the house, the village around it was very nice and the locals were very welcoming

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.

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

Stunning House

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely stunning and the kitchen and dining area are outstanding with everything you need and more. All the bedrooms are beautiful. Everywhere is lovely and clean. The heated courtyard is perfect.

Not one bad word to say, had an amazing time celebrating my 50th. Dave is so helpful. Thank you so much.

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

Owner's Response: Hi Tina, Thank you so much for your review of The Sycamore Gap. It really is great to hear that you all had a fab time. We do have to agree with you that the kitchen area in the house is truly spectacular. Its such a perfect place to mingle and party. As for the heated courtyard, we struggle to find a better way to wind down the day than a nice glass of fizz , a hot tub and then snuggled up with some blankets on the sofas with candle light. We hope you get back soon to see us and thanks again. Fi & Dave

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.
