Visiting Lanercost Priory


While there can be no denying the beauty and majesty of the Lake District, perhaps one of the best things about visiting this UNESCO World Heritage Site is the history written in every towering fell and in each charming town.


Lanercost Priory sits close to Hadrian’s Wall, one of the UK’s most significant archaeological sites, and boasts a history almost as complex. As one of the most hotly contested strongholds during the Anglo-Scottish Wars, the Priory is one of the few places that can say it survived a direct siege by the legendary Robert the Bruce himself. Such was the importance of the Priory that in 1306 it became the centre of the world for English politics, playing the temporary home of the ageing King Edward I. People flocked far and wide to visit the royal entourage, bringing gifts of gold, food, medicine – and the odd decapitated head of a Scottish rebel!

Visiting Lanercost Priory these days is a little more sedate – no swords required – but its beautifully restored stonework and stained glass windows make it one of the rare examples of a 12th Century Priory still surviving and flourishing despite long centuries of war and the devastation of Henry VIII’s dissolution of the monasteries.


To follow in the footsteps of history and extend your immersion in the wonders of years past, Garth House Cottage and Studio is one of the best places you can stay while visiting Lanercost Priory. This exquisite Grade II listed building was built in the 1830s and has been carefully and tastefully converted to combine the integrity of the historical buildings with the luxury and comfort you’d expect from a modern build.
