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 recently moved into a tiny detached barn conversion behind the Rectory. We "reserve" it for 6 or 7 weeks a year for our own family get-togethers, so we can spread out and remember what it's like to stay there!
We've had many an extended family get-together and lots of village parties in the Rectory - and it's ideal for that. Yet with three good-sized reception rooms (plus family kitchen) on the ground floor, plus the snooker room upstairs, there's space for a house-party to spread out comfortably. Its 650 years of history and its architectural features (some of which we uncovered) make it a unique and fascinating place to stay.
We think you'll enjoy the house and the village as much as we do!
