The picturesque town of Brampton is close to Hadrians Wall and in the north Pennines just off an important route way between east and west, A69 (Carlisle to Newcastle). The North Pennines area has recently been designated an Area of Outstanding National Beauty (AONB). St Martin's Church is worth visiting. It contains stunningly colourful stained glass windows designed by Burne-Jones' and executed by the William Morris Studio. Both men were important in the Arts and Crafts Movement in the late 19th century. There is more stained glass designed by Burne-Jones in Lanercost Priory Church. Visitors to Brampton will find the full range of accommodation available including self-catering cottages. Most but not all of the self catering accommodation can be found in the area surrounding the town rather than in its built up area. Many disused farm buildings have been converted into holiday accommodation so that they are more often associated with farms than town streets. Sometimes a number of buildings have been converted on one site giving visitors who book early a choice of cottage or cottages for a larger group. One site near Brampton has seven cottages on it. Prices are normally charged by the week although shorter stays can often be agreed out of peak season. Bookings usually run from Saturday to Saturday although some owners operate from Friday to Friday. Nowadays electricity, heating and gas are typically all inclusive.
