Property information

Keeper's Cottage - an evocative retreat in the debatable lands of the Anglo-Scottish borderlands. Immerse yourself in the warmth, all inclusive and 5-star comfort of Keeper's Cottage, Bewcastle, which is a mile from the nearest neighbour but only 9 miles from Brampton, a busy market town. Surround yourself with the haunting call of pee-wits, curlews and owls, the beating of snipe and pheasant wings as they rise, the bleating of lambs and the barking of deer. These are the only sounds that break the soft silence at this incredibly peaceful cottage. This former shooting lodge is located in High Grains farmstead has been thoughtfully restored and can comfortably accommodate four people. Access is via a 2 mile long, unsurfaced lane, leading to even greater seclusion. With your own conservatory, garden, sheltered decking area and summer house you can enjoy spectacular views to Scotland and the Lakeland Fells. Keeper's Cottage is an ideal base to explore Hadrian's Wall, the Lakes, the Scottish Borders and to trace the fascinating history of the Border Reivers. In additon to the wildlife on the fells, High Grains is home to a veritable menagerie of animals with sheep, chickens, cats and a pet pig. The owner is happy for you to be involved in animal feeding time and you might even collect some eggs for your breakfast!

Visitor comments

    Our visit to Keeper's Cottage, although unplanned, turned out to be the highlight of our cycling trip along the Reviers Route. The cottage is just a couple miles off the route at Bewley Castle and the owners were kind enough to pick us and our bikes up for the trip up the track (we had already done 45 miles so it was not such a big cheat). I can confirm that everything about it justifies the 5 star rating. The previous reviewer has described the accommodation well but not really mentioned the warmth of the welcome or the truly spectacular views. I do not doubt that anyone who stays here will, within hours of arrival, be planning their next visit; I have. Next time will be for a special occassion and we will be staying longer - its that kind of place.

    In short, we loved it! Fantastic location, amazing views, gracious hosts and a well equipped cottage. Recommended for anyone wanting a relaxing break away from the stress of daily life.
  • Google review
    A former shooting lodge, located in High Grains farmstead, which has been restored to a high standard and is super clean. Access is via a 2mile unsurfaced lane. A great place to unwind for adults and children with spectacular views to Scotland and the Lakeland Fells. The owner keeps donkeys and other farm animas which adds to the rural experience.
