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 pleased to announce that Church Court Cottages are now open for holiday bookings in "The Barn", "Hawthorn" and "Herdwick" Cottages and we look forward to seeing all our lovely guests again.

We are also excited to introduce Paul and Karen who are now supporting us with the management of the cottages and bookings. They are looking forward to meeting everyone - after the last couple of years, I think we all deserve a break so don't hesitate to get in touch and see what offers we have available !
