Tarn End Cottages, Talkin, Carlisle

Plan Development :-

Principle Elevations :-

Tarn End is an outstanding development of 12, two storey cottages standing in private grounds of approximately 1.7 acres at the southern end of Talkin Tarn.  The Tarn is located midway between the market town of Brampton and fellside village of Talkin and 9 miles east of Carlisle. 

Talkin Tarn is a natural beauty spot formed from a 65 acre glacial lake surrounded by mature woodland and meadow.  The 120 acre Country Park is owned by Carlisle City Council and has active sailing and rowing clubs, boat hire and a tea room.   Brampton Golf Club is only 200 yds away. 

Tarn End is a sympathetic restoration and conversion of the former Tarn End Hotel.  The 12 cottages have 2 or 3 bedrooms and are built around a courtyard using local red sandstone with traditional slate roofs. 

All properties are finished to a high standard and includes bespoke kitchens with quality appliances and granite worksurfaces and luxuriously appointed bathrooms. Most of the cottages also feature a hand finished copper or brass William Holland bath made by British craftsmen.   Each property has LPG central heating with underfloor heating to the ground floor, UPVC double glazed windows and doors, WIFI and security alarm systems. 

The cottages enjoy open views from large glazed doors and windows, whether to Talkin Tarn or to the Talkin Fells at the tip of the Pennines.  All have a private patio area and shared use of the landscaped gardens leading to a private jetty at the edge of the Tarn.  Two parking spaces are allocated for each cottage. 

The properties are available for full residential use but are also ideal for second homes and weekend cottages.  Marketing and management can also be available for holiday letting.
