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. Sophie in the office was very helpful with organising our multi-cottage booking for our family gathering, especially as we were arriving and departing on different days ! The Priory next door was well worth a look around and the lady on duty... More

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.

Lovely spot and a spacious, very clean and well equipped cottage. We only stayed for a long weekend and we left wishing we'd booked a longer stay. Lots to do. Superb Chinese food from the village. Can't remember its name but choose the one in the main square with the queue. Good walks. Fascinating first visit to the area.

Thank you for your lovely review. It certainly made our Monday morning reading such positive comments! Thank you also for the Chinese food tip - we think this might have been either "Hoi-Son" or the "Golden Palace" - both of which are good Chinese take-aways located in the nearby market town of Brampton - just 5 minutes from the cottages...

After looking at lots of grossly over priced holiday cottages in the Lakes, we were so happy to find Lanercost. The cottages are beautifully presented and well equipped, and the location couldn't be better. We had so much fun doing all of the activities around Hadrian's wall (all within a 30 min drive) but also really enjoyed the walks around... More

I fell in love with the bed... It was so comfy. I loved the whole place, peaceful, restful, beautiful. The house was lovely and in a superb setting right beside the Priory. Lovely walks from the door. Listened to the owls at night which was magical. I can't wait to go back.

Quite pricey for fairly basic accommodation and can't see the point of staying in the countryside if the only view from the windows is a load of cars. The coffee in the tea room was pretty poor as well.

Thank you for taking the time out to review your recent stay. Reading your comments we are obviously concerned that you perhaps didn’t fully enjoy your stay at Lanercost? You mention the accommodation as being ‘fairly basic’ which does surprise us – especially since all our cottages are individually graded 4 star or 4 star GOLD by the Visit England... More

Stayed in Greystoke. Lovely cottage, vey clean and everything you could want. Bedrooms and bedding first class. Bathrooms spacious and even toiletries! Very quiet location, very peaceful. One of the best, if not the best self catering accommodation we have stayed in. Would definitely visit again.
