Highly recommend this place. We were looking for a big house in the Dales to accommodate 6 couples plus a few babies and this was ideal. Loads of space for everyone and had everything we needed. Had plenty of features which made it that extra bit special too - such as the snooker…

Your generous comments here and in our Visitors’ Book about the house being “a wonderful space for an annual meet up with our growing families” are much appreciated, thank you. Your party came from all over England and Scotland, and at just 20 minutes from the M6 and the A66 the tranquil village of Great Asby is surprisingly accessible! Kind regards Jackie and Peter

A fantastic place to stay and a wonderful host - we had a great time in this beautiful part of the world and staying here really helped for a great celebration weekend. Highly recommend and we’ll come back whenever we’re visiting the area again.

This was an opportunity for my young family to step back in time and it was perfect!! Jackie and Peter are wonderful hosts and their house is beautiful. So much space for a large group, sparkling clean and all amenities available. It is about a 10minute drive to Appleby and 30min…

We’re delighted you liked the house and enjoyed the area. You discovered Great Asby is ideally placed for visits to the Lakes, and the Dales on the Appleby-Settle line, then back to peace and quiet and perhaps a meal in the village pub! I hope we might see you again when you next visit the UK. Kind regards, Jackie and Peter.

We’ve had the most wonderful stay at Jackie’s home whilst celebrating my dad’s special birthday. The house itself is quite spectacular yet very homely indeed. There was plenty of space to accommodate our group of eleven. And it’s set in the most gorgeous countryside. So peacefu…

Thank you so much for this Louise and I'm only sorry that the timings over the weekend were such that we didn't meet you in person. It was a delight to meet your family, and even the village pub helped your father celebrate his birthday in the live music evening. We're so pleased you explored the area and that you like the house and the village. Thanks also for leaving the house so very neat and tidy - it is much appreciated. Kind regards, Jackie and Peter

The Old Rectory is a marvellous property in the lovely little village of Great Asby. There’s lots of nice walking very close by and for cyclists the climb of Great Dunn Fell is a short ride away. Windermere, Ambleside and Keswick are only a 45 to 50 minutes drive away so it also …

Marc, we're pleased you had a great weekend and thank you for leaving the house so extremely neat and tidy. You are ideal guests! I'm really delighted that you spotted the advantages of Great Asby - Lakes to the west, Pennines and Dales to the east and tranquillity back at base after a busy day. But you must come back and sample our revitalised village pub, which is now back to being a village focal point! Thanks and hope to see you again. Jackie

We're Jackie and Peter Lambert. We bought the Rectory from the Church in 1982 because it offered us the space to bring up our children in the quiet security of a Cumbrian village. Thirty years later, rather than leave our much loved family home and a brilliant village, we've re…
