The Cottages

at Lovelady Shield Country House Hotel


In 2001 we converted a former cow byre into our home “Colleton” where we lived until the barn conversions were completed in 2007.We now have three self catering cottages around a cobbled courtyard all of which have been awarded 4 stars Gold Award by Visit England.

These 3 luxury ‘Cottages’ comprise a 4 bedroom bungalow and a barn converted into a 2 bedroom apartment and a 3 bedroom house,. Each property is luxuriously appointed to appeal to the most discerning customers and the experience of staying here is quite unique. Guests may avail themselves of the hotel facilities, including the 2 rosette restaurant, bar and grounds, you may even order a meal to be delivered to your accommodation for your arrival. All have free WI-FI superfast broadband.

The location is superb, situated in a valley high up in the north Pennine hills, the area is truly tranquil with lovely views surrounding the grounds.
