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 10 guests), 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 2)
  • 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 up to 2 well behaved dogs (providing you accept our terms) - for more information, see our Dog-friendly cottages page.

More information

All the cottages have Wi-Fi access. As we are rural, it is usually fine for checking e-mails etc, but sadly, you won't be able to download films and music ! so it's a good opportunity to switch off from the hubbub of modern life and enjoy the local environment and scenery. However, we do have TVs as well as books and games to keep you entertained. All our cottages have fully equipped kitchens as well as wood-burning stoves for those cosy nights in and washing machines to catch up on freshening those muddy clothes after your adventures exploring the countryside ! (Herdwick Cottage unfortuately doesn't have a stove or washer)..

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.)

Electricity, bedding, and towels are included in the tariff as well as a basket of logs to get you started with the wood-burner..

A refundable deposit of £50 per cottage is required per booking (payable with the cost of your holiday and will be returned by BACS within a week of your departure if there are no damages/breakages/extra electricity charges etc,

If you have any particular requests for your stay, don't hesitate to ask and we will do our best to help !
