Bed & breakfast Rooms & Facilities

The Scotch Arms Mews was originally an Inn and has wooden floors in the hall and guest’s lounge. As with many of the public houses in the Brampton area. The first record of this The Scotch Arms Mews as an inn appears in the Trade Directories of 1819, although it is thought that it had become an inn much earlier - in the late 1700’s.
The inn was owned at that time by Mr James a solicitor, and the innkeeper was John Halliburton followed by Robert and Ann Halliburton. This very soon became a successful coaching and posting inn, with accommodation for 24 overnight guests, and where 25 people could sit down to meals in the dining room heated by a large open fire.
