We were a group of twelve cyclists who booked three of the cottages - all of which are arrayed around a courtyard. The rooms were all great with a choice of en-suite bath or shower, kitchens were well equipped and with a little re-organisation of furniture in one unit we had a room enough to seat us all rounf one...

We stayed for a week in a 2 bedroom cottage. The fittings and decor were good with plenty of space. Each bedroom was en suite; the double bed was huge and comfortable and the kitchen facilities very good. There was seating outside for 2 people which as the cottage can accommodate 4 is a bit odd but as there were... More

After a long day of driving and driving rain and snow we arrived to a warm cottage with all the trimmings. The cottage was well designed and very comfortable. We were especially thrilled with the very comfy bed and well laid out kitchen....all ready to do some home cooking. The site near Lanercost Priory is in a spectacular setting not... More

We loved our time at Lanercost as a group of 12 on a charity walk of Hadrians Wall. The cottages surpassed all expectations and were the most wonderful base for our week. Very generously appointed, the best of everything with beautiful scenery and all you could wish for supplied (the welcome bottle of wine was a treat).Sophie and her team... More

Thank you so much for your super review. We are all delighted to hear you enjoyed your recent group stay at Lanercost. We like to think the courtyard cottage set-up works particularly well for large groups staying - ie. privacy when you want it, but also the opportunity to 'come together' as a group, when required. Great to hear you... More

From the moment we stepped through the door, DeVaux cottage felt like home. Greeted by a vase of daffodils, welcome message and bottle of wine, it quickly became clear we had found somewhere special. The cleanliness of the cottage was impeccable, the place gleamed. Helen, the housekeeper, kindly checked on us to make sure everything was ok. The quality of... More

I can not fault the Lanercost Cottage we stayed in over New Year 2014 (from 29th Dec - 3rd Jan). The quality, amenities and space were perfect for our needs. We stayed in Cottage Howard which comprises of 4 Bedrooms, sleeping 8. Our group included 3 seperate families with young children and infants. We were left a little note upon... More

Immaculately presented, warm and well equipped and appointed accommodation. We arrived late to find the lights left on to welcome us and the cleaning manager introduced herself to us the next day, we were made to feel very welcome. There was the usual folder with local information, but this was full of practical and very detailed write ups on restaurants,... More

A beautiful location with lovely local walks and access to Hadrian's Wall. Spotlessly clean and well equipped cottages.

We have recently spent a wonderful weekend at Lanercost Holiday Cottages to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday with family and friends. The property was superb, well equipped, warm and cosy and the office staff could not have been more helpful. Will definitely return fairly soon.
