Sampson's was originally two railway cottages which were lovingly restored by the family to make one glorious sandstone house as you see it today. Having spent many wonderful holidays at Sampson's, we have decided to open it's doors to guests who we hope will love it just as much as we do.  


Absolutely perfect in every way. The house is extremely comfortable and homely, with all the creature comforts that we could possibly need. The Christmas goodies and the beautifully decorated tree made it even more special. Thank you so much and we can't wait to return!

What a lovely treat waiting at the bottom of the steep track. Such a cosy, warm, welcoming house with the Rayburn humming away, a huge L-shaped kitchen, dining and sitting room with views out to the gorgeous countryside. Sheep and pheasants, the little railway line behind and then the wide river. Just lovely.

The house lived up the photographs on line and was so quiet with a lovely ambience as it's full of the owner's artefacts and pictures. The views to outside were uplifting and it made for a very special family time. Highly recommend.

What can we say about Sampsons! We loved it! We came as two families; four adults and four children and our dog. It's a stunning setting. The house is just beautiful. Rich in history, family photos, toys, books, games and an ace record collection! After a hard 18months we had lost a bit of fun in our family but we rediscovered it here. We had an 11th birthday where we baked a giant cake, the kids played dress up, we even played musical chairs and statues, marshmallows on the fire pit. Here I slept so deeply. Step back in time, slow down, embrace Sampsons and rediscover simple pleasures.

What a truly fabulous house! We have stayed in many properties in the UK and Europe and this has to rate as one of the very best. We ranged in age from 69 to 2 years old, plus an aged cocker spaniel and everyone felt really at home! As someone who dabbles in antiques I was also enthralled by the rugs, pictures and the many decorative pieces in every room. Great outdoor space too and the sun shone every day bar one which was a bonus. Don't hesitate in booking this one.

What a beautiful spot - a lovely family home, with beautiful decor, and nestled in fields surrounded by wonderful countryside. We had a week up at Sampson's - dipping in and out of the Lake District, Hadrians Wall and lots of stunning walks. Very well looked after, and cook available too. Highly recommended.

Something's indefinably Bohemian about this place. The best feature was the open-plan kitchen/living-/dining-room with a range to cook on and a proper record player plus huge stock of LPs from the past several decades. Staying there felt like being at a favourite friend's house. Down a farm track in a hidden valley it's bright, bucolic, and comfortable, with bats around in the evenings (you need to enjoy this bit of natural history in close quarters - we did), and a river a few minutes' walk away at the bottom of the hill. A great base for exploring castles, and walks around the Lake District
