    The cottage has been renovated to a high standard and has so much charm and character. It really does have everything you need and is very cosy, clean and comfortable. The beds were extremely comfortable as were the settees in the lounge. A big thank you to Margaret and Robert for such helpful advice on places to eat, visit and enjoy.

  • "We live only an hour away by the coast but fancied a few days' break exploring the Kielder area."

    Granary Cottage proved to be the perfect base. A meticulously planned and implemented conversion of old farm buildings, the cottage offers warmth, comfort and very spacious accommodation for up to four people (it would be ideal for two couples). It offers impressive and well-equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge with proper seating for four, and two generous bedrooms with smart en-suites that would put many top hotels to shame. Spotlessly clean on arrival and nice to be left a welcome basket with local treats. The hosts were so friendly and, despite being busy on the farm, were always happy to chat and recommend local places to visit and places to eat. The cottage is ideally placed for visits to many of Northumberland's top attractions. An all round five-star experience. Thank you!

    The owners were most welcoming and gave us lots of good information about the area, places to visit, good places to eat and much more.

    Very spacious, even a utility room. Very well positioned right in the heart of Bellingham, there are a couple of pubs, the Cheviot is the best, a post office, coop, chemist, Chinese takeaway (really good), bakery (lovely pies), 2 gift shops and The Fountain Cafe is a must. Just a short drive (8 miles) away., near Kielder is the Pheasant restaurant, really good, but you must book. Kielder Water Bird of Prey Centre is well worth a visit as is the village of Corbridge.

During our 1-week stay we explored places like Cragside, Wallington, Vindolander, Corbridge, Banburgh Castle, Amble and the Holy Island amongst others.

    I was in trouble with my wife for procrastinating about booking accommodation in Northumberland. For once in my life, it worked out to my advantage. We were able to book a week’s stay within just a few days of the property being advertised by Sykes for the first time. Margaret’s records showed we were their 5th booking in less than a week. If I had booked somewhere else sooner, as instructed, we would have missed this wonderful place to stay. You will not be disappointed by Granary Cottage. Very well furnished; central location in Bellingham, which is a delightful small town. Lots of space; stylish furniture with big, comfortable beds in the two bedrooms. The kitchen must surely satisfy the most discerning and demanding guest, whether male or female. Margaret, the property owner, is friendly, thoughtful and kind; one of the best we have encountered.

  • "What a fantastic privilege to be the first guests here at Granary Cottage!"

    Margaret and Robert are extremely dedicated, hard-working hosts, always on hand for local recommendations yet respectful of our privacy. The cottage was immaculate in every way with many personal touches and in a great location to explore the many attractions Northumberland has to offer. Thank you so much for making this such a memorable (and much-needed, due to the pressures of the pandemic) holiday for us all........we absolutely loved it and will undoubtedly be back to hear how Coco the calf is doing. We would highly recommend this cottage.
