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.

We rented all 6 cottages for our family of 31 to celebrate our wedding at Gretna which is only 25mins up the road. The site is stunning, staff lovely, the cottages are beautifully decorated and very well equipped plus you're in the middle of Hadrian's Wall country. We are already trying to organise when we can return. I challenge anyone... More

This is a delightful place - good location for the Wall, very high standard of finish, quiet, comfortable and nice staff looking after the establishment. I strongly recommend it a base for exploring the surrounding area.

The cottage was immaculate and the bed was large and comfortable which help made the stay perfect. The location is beautiful and peaceful but only a short distance drive to places of interest and m6. There is so much history and the priory is beautiful.
