  • "Stunning property in a fabulous setting."

    I wished I had taken my art “stuff” with me it was so inspiring. It was super quiet too. The hosts were very warm and welcoming. They are happy to share their journey with this Grade II project - I was so impressed. The cottage was spacious and warm - everything high spec and everything you need provided for. It has touches of old with the modern - wonderful conversion - stunning. My only con would be it was approx 5 miles from a pub/ restaurant etc. Our labradoodle loved his morning walks down to the river straight out of the front door. We will definitely want to return next year if not sooner.

    We found the property to be cosy yet spacious and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was well equipped and the beds very comfy. The grounds were lovely too, the girls loved walking down to the woods to play. We loved our stay, thank you!

    It was a pleasure to have you all stay Jenny. Inca is missing the fun with the girls. Thank you for your lovely review and we hope to see you all again. Best wishes Jess Property Owner

    The Hosts attention to detail and friendly welcome (including their young daughter and lovely dog) added to the enjoyment of our stay. We were sorry when we had to leave and will definitely be booking again in the very near future.

  • "Such a warm and cosy stay!"

    The attention to detail was wonderful. The grounds are so quiet, it felt like we were the only ones there. The bed was unbelievably comfortable - I need to know what pillows are used! The bath was stunning. We had planned a few walks and meals out but we ended up mainly staying in as we were so relaxed. Will absolutely be back.

The property

Longtown 4.7 miles.

The Courtyard is a luxurious country retreat for up to four people, in the grounds of Kirklinton Hall - a beautiful, atmospheric, and partly ruined country house, dating back to the 17th century, all surrounded by 14 acres of formal gardens, woodland and meadows.

As you turn through the gates of Kirklinton Hall prepare to be transported to another world as the impressive remains of Kirklinton Hall come into full view. The Courtyard created from the Hall’s carriage house, combines many original features with everyday comforts, with stone floors and underfloor heating throughout.

Step indoors and be wowed by the open-plan living space, with exposed stonework, original beams and a woodburning stove.

The kitchen is fully equipped, with a large breakfast island, along with a dining table to gather around for relaxed evening meals.

Alternatively, sink into the luxurious sofas and either soak up the silence or catch a film on the smart TV.

Two beautifully appointed and spacious bedrooms are on offer, a king-size and a twin (zip/link), both complete with luxurious bed linens and plenty of storage, whilst a sleek and elegant bathroom invites you to indulge in a long soak or a refreshing shower.

Outside you will have access to formal gardens and woodland surrounding the property.

Relax in the total tranquillity of the gardens or take a woodland riverside walk, following the tumbling beck until it finally joins a curve of the River Lyne.

If you can tear yourself away, you are just a few miles from the Scottish border, and ideally situated for exploring Hadrian’s Wall, the Lake District and Northumberland National Parks, and the Scottish Borders.

For an unforgettable stay in a very special property book your next escape at The Courtyard.

Note: This property can be booked with Refs. 1102745 and 1129282, together sleeping up to eight guests. Kirklinton Hall is also a wedding venue, but no weddings will take place when the cottages are booked for holiday breaks.

Kirklinton Hall & Gardens

Set within a beautiful rural location on the outskirts of Kirklinton, an ancient village in Cumbria, lie the stunning trio of properties offered at Kirklinton Hall. Featuring ample off-road parking, the properties provide well-appointed and contemporary living spaces, set in extensive gardens and serene woodland. This unique collection makes an ideal base for an extended family, a group of friends, or sharing couples looking for a relaxing and memorable break away from the rush of everyday life. A short car journey will bring you into the historic market towns of Brampton or Longtown. Both have small supermarkets, along with a number of excellent independent shops, with a wider range of shopping in nearby Carlisle. The area is well provided with pubs and restaurants if you prefer to forget cooking for a few days! The local area is rich in history having been a focal point for the ongoing skirmishes and battles between English and Scottish forces from pre-Roman times until the time of the formal union between the two countries in 1603. Hadrian’s Wall, just a few miles from Kirklinton, was built to keep out Scottish raiders during Roman times. Carlisle Castle was the principal fortress of England’s north-west border with Scotland for the 500 years leading up to the union of the two countries. Border reivers were raiders along the Anglo-Scottish border from the late 13th century to the early 17th century and most significant houses at that time had a fortified peel tower, both as a form of defence and to warn neighbouring properties of attack. The peel tower at Kirklinton Hall, with a single room at the top of a spiral staircase, is the oldest building on the site and can be viewed by arrangement with the owners. In addition to the historic sites of Hadrian’s Wall and Carlisle Castle, are the Lake District and Northumberland National Parks. Less well known and certainly worth exploring are the North Pennine AONB and Solway Coast AONB. For an unforgettable retreat in Cumbria, make sure you book a stay at the Kirklinton Hall & Gardens.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
