Lanercost Bed and Breakfast
Our location is incredibly special – surrounded by stunning Cumbrian countryside, just 400 yards from the World Heritage Site of Hadrian’s Wall, and in the heart of the Lanercost Priory site. Lanercost Bed and Breakfast combines luxury with relaxed hospitality, in a beautiful, peaceful and historic setting, to provide what we hope is the ultimate bed and breakfast experience. AA “Friendliest B&B in Britain Award” Finalists, we have four individually decorated ensuite guest bedrooms with wonderfully comfortable superking beds which can be set as double or twin, luxury bedlinen, and lovely views of either the Priory ruins behind, or the open fields and ancient woodland of the Irthing River Valley in front. The modern en-suites have bath and double size shower or double-sized shower.

The elegant guests’ sitting room has high ceilings, a large fireplace, with roaring log fires in cooler weather, lots of books and big comfy leather sofas. Breakfast is served at our antique dining table in our elegant dining room with roaring log fires, or, on warm sunny mornings, in the garden with the Lanercost Priory ruins as your backdrop.

A warm welcome – Your hosts, Bob and Christina Lamb, will do their utmost to ensure that you have a comfortable and relaxing stay.

Bob and Christina are passionate about high quality, locally sourced produce. Bob, previously a sheep farmer, keeps the rare bread chickens that provide your eggs at breakfast time, grows herbs, soft fruits and vegetables for the B&B, and tends the extensive gardens that he hopes you will enjoy during your stay. Christina, a former award-winning, two-rossette chef, has designed the breakfast menu to provide the best in quality home cooking. Christina makes all the breads, jams, cakes, ice creams and suppers that we serve at Lanercost Bed & Breakfast. All foods are home grown, homemade or locally sourced. Meats, from our local butcher, are all from local farms. Quality is paramount, see a list of suppliers on our website
