    • “A right result”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We stayed for a week using it as the base for a circular walk the Inns Way. This was an impeccable place to stay. The standard is 5 star. The touches we greatly appreciated. A lovely bottle of wine with delicious carrot cake, along with some sweets. Every appliance and contents of the kitchen were high class. The furniture including the beds very comfortable. the location is perfect for all the area has to offer. this is one of the best place I have stayed at.”

    • “The best holiday cottage ever”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Set in a secluded rural position with extensive views over the Northumbrian countryside, extremely well equipped, tastefully and comfortably furnished it was a pleasure to return to after a hard day sightseeing. The wine and cake on arrival and the toiletries in the bathrooms were an unexpected but very much appreciated gesture; as was the welcome and information from the owner on our arrival. This cottage is within an hours drive of the main tourist attractions. We felt really at home here and none of us wanted to come home at the end of our stay. The friendly service in the village shops is worth a mention too along with the morning visit of the cockerel and his harem of hens!”

    • “Best Holiday In Years!”

    • “The Granary is a cottage to fall in love with. From the moment you drive through the gates, to discovering and falling for this sumptuously appointed and spacious holiday home, to waving goodbye and wishing you didn't have to, I cannot rate it highly enough. For a couple or small family it is just superb and my fiance and I only wish we could have stayed there during the summer months to enjoy the patio etc fully. The bedrooms, kitchen and bathrooms particularly are as if brand new, simply stunning and near faultless, the 2 power showers excellent, although the shower cubicle base did fill up to the limit within about ten minutes for those who like me enjoy a longer shower! But the over bath shower next door was of the same type and did not suffer this minor problem. Great tiles, mirrors, lighting, heated towel rails, etc etc. Kitchen utility area and downstairs toilet beyond it are a real bonus and all so well presented you felt pampered. Fully equipped kitchen, only gripes were tin opener wasn't working and no egg cups, I defy you to find any others! The sunsets from the large kitchen cartwheel window were beautiful and provided some lovely snaps of my car. The plentiful books/crosswords/Dvds/CDs/games were a nice touch and added to our holiday, as did Hamish, the friendly doorstop dog! Comfy beds, although we found the 2 seater sofa of only average comfort, a bit slidey and needed a throw. Enjoyed the candles and woodburner and melting pleasantly even during the cold spell, plenty of wood and coal supplied for a week. Central heating superb although smoke alarm annoyingly activated whenever grilled anything. Lots of places to visit in all directions, Alnwick, Berwick, Morpeth, Rothbury, Coast, what more do you want? The owners were very cheerful and helpful although they were in process of moving out. We were greeted by the new owners who we also found friendly. Ah, the memories. Best holiday in years!!!”

    • “The Granary in Longframlington is an idyllic holiday home. Fixtures and fittings are extremely tasteful and of the highest quality throughout. Our hosts were charming, very welcoming and provided the most delicious home made cakes! A perfect location, really good bistro pubs locally, and restaurants within easy driving distance. Alnwick and The Gardens and Castle are within a 15 minute drive, the town also has a nice little theatre. The countryside, coast, castles and walks are breathtaking - what more can I say. I will definitely stay at The Granary again but for longer!”

It was lovely having two bathrooms and we were delighted with the dressing gowns especially as the children had one too . The owner's touches were lovely. A short walk takes you to the village and the cottage is well placed for local attractions and the coast.”

    Mrs Sunley, Dronfield, May 2014

    • “The cottage was superb in every way. It was beautifully furnished and was a pleasure to stay in, it was a home from home, with the added bonus of stunning countryside views and the morning visit from the chickens. The owners made us feel very welcome and the welcome pack of home made cake, wine and milk was so lovely to walk into after our long journey. The village has everything you need, an excellent grocers, butchers and newsagents. The local pubs are welcoming and it is close to all the tourist attractions. Alnwick is only 10 minutes away for the major supermarkets, petrol etc. Couldn't fault it in any way, cant wait to go back! Thank you.”
