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

Thank you for this Naomi and also for leaving the house so neat and tidy. Although there's not too much going on in the village itself (which is part of its charm!) you visited the celebrated Dufton Show and also enjoyed the spectacular scenery of the Appleby to Settle railway, both of which are within easy reach. We'd be delighted for you to come back! Jackie and Peter

We booked the Old Rectory for our father's 70th birthday celebrations. We were all absolutely delighted as it was warm, welcoming and well-equipped. It was ideal for a large family (ours ranged from 3 months to 70 years old). Jackie and Peter were wonderful hosts, very approac…

Sandeep, thank you for your generous comments and also for leaving the house so neat and tidy. We're especially pleased that you were able to enjoy a meal at our newly reopened, refurbished village pub - it is nice to have the option of having a break from self-catering! We hope we might see you again. Kind regards, Jackie and Peter

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…
