Exterior of the cottages

Overview of Church Court Cottages

All four cottages are unique and different. If you are looking for an individual style in a 17th Century setting, you will find something to suit your needs in one of our properties.

They are also a great venue for larger groups (we can accommodate up to 12 adults), as each family/couple has their own personal space, but can use the large open plan living area of The Barn (our largest cottage) as a comfortable place to congregate. The cottages comprise:

  • The Barn (sleeps 4)
  • Hawthorn Cottage (sleeps up to 4)
  • Helm Cottage (sleeps 2)
  • Herdwick Cottage (sleeps 2)

Special celebrations

If you have a special celebration during your visit, do let us know and we will do our best to make it an extra special stay! You can reserve one of our celebration packs when you book your cottage - see our Extras page.


We are very happy for you to bring a dog (providing you accept our terms) - for more information, see our Dog-friendly cottages page.

More information

We are happy to provide our guests with a range of basic toiletries in case you forget anything, as well as a few various food items/snacks to start you off if you arrive late without shopping ! We also try to offer some home-baking for your arrival when possible and some fresh eggs from our own hens - these are also available to purchase if you need more.

All the cottages have Wi-Fi access, but we are rural, so it is usually fine for checking e-mails etc, but don't expect to download films and music ! We also have TVs, DVD players, and fully equipped kitchens in all our cottages.

If you are travelling with young guests, we have travel cots and a high chair available on request (please arrange when booking, in case other guests have already reserved them.)

Bedding, and towels are included in the tariff unless you are booking with a special offer price. (Please ask to confirm).

A refundable damages deposit of £50 per cottage will be added to the rental cost and returned by BACS within a week of your departure if there is no damage/breakages etc, also electricity costs are not included in the rental (this is charged at 25p per kwh - this is a non-profit rate to cover the bill. Please enquire for examples of typical charges for short breaks/week stays.
