The Lord Melvyn Bragg novel, 'A Time to Dance', featured the town of Thurston, which was based on Wigton and the local area.

The epic Roman construction, Hadrian's Wall, is within 25 miles, whilst the Scottish borders and their famous town of Gretna Green are within easy driving distance.

This was avery spacious and comfortable place to stay which was exactly what we expected of a country cottage and more. The addition of it being located on a working farm enhanced our stay. The owners were friendly and helpful and nothing was abother to themand the free range eggs they supplied beautiful and stright from the nest. An all round joy of a stay
Get away from it all

We all stayed here for New Year Eve and loved it. The farmer and his wife were real helpful and made sure we were comfy in the cottage. It is attached to the working farm with some fab animals - sheep, dogs and horses that we got to play with ;->
there is acres of land that you can go for walks in and not to far to get to other parts but i would say a car is needed!!
the amenities were great could not ask for more - 2 bathrooms 3 bedrooms........the kitchen had all that was needed to live there..............
I do recommend the cottage to all......
the owners really make the holiday

A great warm and cozy farmhouse property. The kitchen was huge well stocked and the Aga a treat. BUt the jewel were the owners, nothing was too much trouble - eggs delivered and milk. But the attention they gave my boys is not forgotton - animals and tractors - a great combination.

The agar in the kitchen was wonderful.The cottage was well equipped for all members of the family including toys for the granchildren to books and games for the adults.The granchildren adored the baby lamb which hd been born the day we arrived. The grounds were a haven tucked away which were safe for the children to explore and the farmer and his wife very hospitable.
The bedrooms were roomy and well decorated.It was one of the best holidays we have had with our son and his family for a long time even though it was the height of the season and the weather wasnt that wonderful. It would be good to hsave a bigger television in the lounge but it really wasnt a major problem...even the dog had a good time.
Really depends if you are looking for a farmhouse accommodation or a more up market modern property.For us it was ideal.
