Beautiful cottages. We stayed in Dacre which was spotlessly clean. All mod cons dishwater, washer/dryer etc. Everything you would need Free wi-fi. Books, dvds available for use. Warm and comfortable. Excellent location for sightseeing trips. A lovely gift shop and tea room next door. Well worth a return visit. Highly recommended

Lovely walks, holiday cottages very comfy & luxury. There is also a cafe, church and shop. There is a lovely feel to the whole place. Lots on the menu - fresh & local food. I enjoyed many walks around the place. Hadrians Wall is very near - musuem too (admissions apply). Excellent! Thank You Lanercost!

Actually we visited just after the 2015 floods in Carlisle and Cockermouth. No problems at all in Lanercost. Wonderful self catering accommodation. Plenty of space and all the facilities you could want. We would have been happy to buy and live there. Lanercost is a couple of miles outside Brampton, where you can get all your basic needs.

Our party of 4 couples arrived Sunday afternoon for a four night stay, our property called Howard House was warm and cosy on arrival and we started to unload four car loads of food and drink, as each couple was responsible for wining and dining on one of the four nights, first issue, the fridge is nowhere near big enough...

We stayed last week with friends in De Brotherton. The cottage is very large and spotlessly clean. The beds are comfortable as are the reclining sofas in the sitting room. However I do think there is room for improvement. The lighting throughout is very poor. In the kitchen we found ourselves cooking and eating our evening meal in gloom .... More

Thank you very much for the helpful comments about the lighting in De Brotherton. I am sorry I have taken such a time to respond, but I have needed to take some expert advice from our electricians and lighting experts. Due to the fact that the buildings are listed and overlook a Scheduled Ancient Monument, the planners and English Heritage... More

We had originally booked 5 days in de Moulton cottage, but after a problem with the boiler, we were upgraded to de Brotherton. This is a 3 bedroomed , luxury apartment, and everything about it was superb. The only downside with these cottages is that there is no private outside seating area., but everything else is ideal for a lovely... More

The cottage was lovely, with a large dining room we were able to use with other family members staying nearby to hold meals for up to 12 people. There are lots of interesting walks nearby, with Hadrian's Wall less than a mile.Do not miss the amazing site of Vindolanda, with Roman finds of the highest quality and an excellent cafe.

As Cumbrian exiles we have visited Lanercost a number of times but this was our first stay in one of the cottages. We stayed six nights in Dacre which is a good size even for four adults. The furniture and fittings were excellent and the milk and wine were unexpected and very much appreciated. The housekeeping staff are the best... More

Stayed in DeBrotherton cottage and although I had seen pictures of the cottage before my stay I was still so pleasantly surprised at how spacious, clean, bright and modern the cottage was. The surrounding area is just beautiful and so peaceful. I will definitely return.
