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.

The rooms are spacious, beautifully appointed and furnished. Wooden floor in living and dining area, chocolate brown leather recliner sofas. Kitchen well equipped, Bathroom and shower room... More

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

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.

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.
