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 - 3 adults or 2 adults & 2 children)
  • 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, but 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, 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 deposit of £50 per cottage is required per booking (payable before your holiday by card or with cash on arrival), and will be returned by BACS within a week of your departure if there is no damage/breakages/extra electricity charges etc,

Electricity costs are included in the rental up to a total of £10 per day. Any usage over this amount will be charged at cost (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.

We are happy to offer a few basic toiletries for use during your stay, and if you have forgotten anything in particular, we will do our best to provide what you need. We also try to offer some home-baking during your stay when possible, and some fresh eggs from our own hen - these are also available to purchase if you need more when available.
