    .....! We certainly will return (there is so much to see in the beautiful Northumberland countryside, and the cottage was ACE. Dr.And Mrs. Stevens Bristol

  • "We had a wonderful week based at Granary Cottage."

    It had everything we needed including lovely comfy beds. The owners are lovely, the village has everything you need, there are walks from the door and there is lots to see and do within a short drive. (The cottage is on a working farm and positioned on a lane, so there is the associated noise. This didn’t bother us in the slightest but it’s something to be aware of, if looking for total peace and quiet.) Would highly recommend!

  • "Superb, spacious holiday cottage with high quality furniture and furnishings."

    The cottage is in a very good position for exploring Northumberland with waterfall and river walks close to the property. Owners were friendly and knowledgeable- there if needed, but unobtrusive. The welcome ‘treats’ and large basket of logs were appreciated: thank you!

  • "Granary Cottage is an absolute gem, furnished to a very high standard, with an eye to detail."

    Extremely comfortable bed, which is exactly what is needed after a days walk. Margaret and Robert (owners) are lovely people, offering lots of ideas for walks, restaurants ensuring we had the perfect stay. They are very hard working (cottage is on a working farm) but still had time to meet and greet. This is the best cottage we have stayed in … from well equipped spacious kitchen, lovely snug and super cosy bedrooms. Whilst we had to keep an eye on work emails, (just a little)wifi is super fast. Bellingham is a fab location, don’t miss the walk to the waterfall, and pop into the local shops/cafes … we were lucky to be there when there was a classic car show on Sunday morning… great show of cars, Tea on the train and a visit to the Heritage Centre… to learn about Kielder Forest/dam is a must. A stay at Granary Cottage was so enjoyable, we loved it C&D

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Granary Cottage and would certainly hope to come back sometime."

    The accommodation is second to none – carefully planned to provide a very pleasant and restful atmosphere within this delightful friendly country town. We liked the feel of living in a re-juvenated farm building which has served in one way for many years and which now has found an ideal new characterful use. For us the location of Granary Cottage within the heart of Bellingham was a bonus – so close to shops, café’s and places of interest and within striking distance of all the North Tyne Valley has to offer.

  • "Great find for us."

    We will book again! We couldn't fault it, the only thing I'd say is to add more to the listing, likes of: basket of wood in winter months - underfloor heating - generous kitchen area (photos can be deciving when first looking on website) - utilities room, was a god send, I could imagine walking families would be attracted to this - smart TV's - large beds with towels supplied. A great place with quality in mind from host Margret.

  • "This property deserves 6 stars!"

    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. We can’t rate this property highly enough; very satisfied customers!
