“Highest Standard of Accommodation”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 via mobile

These were undoubtably the highest standard of "rental cottage" I have ever stayed in.
Not too sure about the "cream" stair and top floor carpet, but for the first time in my life I took my shoes off as I stepped in the door and wandered around in my sandals.
Without having big windows the bedrooms were light.
Definitely not cheep, but it still thought they were excellent value for money.

It was also lovely and the food was excellent. the surroundings were most attractive and pleasant with Lanercost Priory a short walk away.We certainly hope to stay here again and recommend very highly.

We are so pleased to hear you describe your recent stay at Lanercost as being "A REAL TREAT". Great to receive 5 out of 5 stars too! The housekeeping staff pride themselves on the high cleanliness standards within the cottages, so they will be pleased to hear all your lovely comments. You are also spot on mentioning the 'attractive and pleasant' surroundings. Here at Lanercost we are most fortunate to have the beautiful 12th century Lanercost Priory so close by, not forgetting the path of Hadrian's Wall just 400 yards from your cottage door. Thank you again for taking the time to review us - and we hope to see you back at Lanercost very soon.

We stayed as a group of 14, the cottages are lovely, there are beautiful tearooms just 100m away where we had a fantastic breakfast. Large spacious rooms and lovely communal areas in the cottages. A fantastic stay!

Thank you for taking the time to review our cottages. Great to hear you describe your stay as being 'FANTASTIC'. With all 6 properties located in one large courtyard, Lanercost works particularly well for group bookings - allowing you both privacy and the opportunity to meet up as a large group. Being so close to the cottages, The Tea Room is a particularly good meeting place and we are fortunate that it is open 7 days a week (from 10am-5pm). Thank you again for your lovely comments and hope to see you back at Lanercost again soon.

This is my third stay with my cousin and the accommodation is excellent as always and cannot be faulted - and each time I am surprised by the cleanliness - it is often hard to find self catering properties of this high standard. There is lot to offer in the area, or even if you just want to relax it is an ideal location to get away from it all. I shall definitely be back.

Room Tip: The two bedroomed cottage (De Vaux) we stay in is ideal for us - although it will accommodate 4 peop...

Great to receive yet another lovely review - but especially rewarding to hear from guests that have stayed a number of times before. We're still a relatively young business but are increasingly seeing customers return year after year, and 2-3 times a year in some cases! The housekeeping team will be delighted to hear you found the cottages so clean - this is something we are a stickler for. We are proud of our high standards and want to make you feel as welcome as we possibly can. And, as you say "there is a lot to offer in the area, or even if you just want to relax - it is an ideal location to get away from it all." We couldn't agree more! Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you both back to Lanercost soon.

Fantastic self catering accommodation. Big rooms, wonderful architecture tastefully decorated. We'll equipped kitchen, TV, DVD etc. Great to have the Priory right next door to explore and large open spaces to fly kites. Roman ruins in your doorstep. Recommend.

Just returned after an enjoyable weekend with friends, staying in De Brotherton. We have stayed in many cottages over several years and this cottage didn't disappoint.
It is very well furnished and equipped and the layout works very well and of course the area is stunning.
However there are a couple of things I feel are worth a mention that could perhaps be addressed by the owners, and having read previous reviews I realise I am not alone in my thoughts.
The rug in the living room is indeed dangerous, it moves very easily on the wooden floor and several of us slipped on it over the weekend.
The step down from the dining kitchen into the living room is also a bit of an accident waiting to happen, it needs to be highlighted in some way.
The water pressure in the twin bedroom with the bath is poor, the bath takes an age to fill & the loo didn't flush too well either. The bathroom is large enough to include a walk in shower but even a shower over the bath would have been an advantage.
If these things were addressed the cottage would have been outstanding but even without these changes I still would not hesitate to recommend Lanercost to friends who may be wanting to visit the area.

We stayed in De Moulton in October and November. The booking was handled with great efficiency and the owner was most helpful and reassuring about the heating which could not have been better.The development is small so lovely and quiet. The location is delightful adjacent to Lanercost Priory but still very convenient for the M6. Cleanliness is a credit to the Housekeeper and the bedroom was very comfortable having a super-king bed. Their shop is extremely well stocked with lots of interesting books and leaflets about the area. The staff could not be more friendly. I would recommend these cottages to anyone.
