Church Court Cottages - your cosy countryside retreat in the heart of the Eden Valley, close to the Lake District.

High quality self-catering cottages in the village of Gamblesby, Cumbria.

Four beautiful red sandstone cottages are connected together around the central courtyard. They are ideally situated between the mountains of the Lake District National Park and the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Gamblesby is also within easy reach of major transport links (like the M6, A1 and A66), cities like Carlisle and Newcastle and of course Scotland.

  • All our cottages are dog friendly, with numerous walks available around the village and surrounding countryside
  • Short breaks are available all year round - midweek breaks (Mon-Fri) or weekend breaks (Fri-Mon). For longer stays, our changeover days are also Mondays and Fridays
  • The cottages are ideal for couples, families, re-unions, or special celebrations etc. (Just ask if you have any special requests, and we'll try to help)

Smoking is not allowed in any of the cottages or within the property boundaries.


We are happy to offer guests who book a stay of more than 4 nights, a 10% discount voucher when purchasing a meal at "The Village Bakery" in our neighbouring village of Melmerby.
