The Plough is a characterful three bedroom house situated in the small Cumbrian Hamlet of Banks. It is situated half a mile down the road from where the noted English Artist Winifred Nicholson lived, just a few miles from the pretty market town of Brampton, and a stones throw from Hadrian's Wall. The impressive Roman Fort of Housesteads is about 4 miles away and Vindolanda is about 13 miles from the house, Well worth a visit if you are interested Roman History.

Beautiful property, lovely and homely as well as being stylish. The views from the house are stunning as well as being so near to Banks Turret on Hadrian’s Wall. Can’t recommend it enough!

Definitely recommended - great location, lovely and unusual house full of personality and very functional (I.e. everything worked!) Highlights: a bathroom for each bedroom, the wood burning fire, the games, the well equipped kitchen, the general comfort of everything. Book it!
