The property

Bellingham 5.2 miles.

Sitting peacefully on the banks of the North River Tyne in the quaint village of Greystead, you will find the breath-taking holiday cottage of Greystead Old Church.

Dating back to the 19th century, this Grade II listed former Georgian church has been restored to a high standard whilst retaining character through its impressive original features such as the enchanting stained-glass windows and gothic archways, offering a unique and fabulous setting for your next family adventure in the Northumberland countryside.

Snuggle up in front of the woodburning stove on a cold winter’s night as you make yourself at home in the charming ground-floor sitting room, before retiring to one of the four homely bedrooms, one of which has been formed from the original panel vestry featuring an original fireplace.

The first of the king-sized bedrooms is complete with a tranquil en-suite bathroom, whilst the second and third king-size bedrooms both benefit from an en-suite shower room.

The final bedroom is a bright and airy twin bedroom, ideal for children or guests wanting to share with a friend.

Venture up the staircase to the first floor and be welcomed into the vast mezzanine open-plan living area, covering two thirds of the former nave and boasting a stylish fitted kitchen with an eye-catching central island and granite work surfaces.

The space is complete with a grand dining area and spacious seating areas, perfect for socialising with your nearest and dearest at the end of a fun-filled day of activities.

Admire the views of the luscious green hillside as you watch the sun set from the original lancet windows and sight-lines over the balcony to the east end.

Spend warm summer night’s out in the private and enclosed garden as the chef of the group takes to the barbecue, or why not challenge your friends and family to a quick match of tennis on the shared courts that rest happily in the picture-perfect walled garden.

Make the most of the star-gazing platform as you view the area's famous 'Dark Skies', superbly sited near the Old Church garden; bring your own telescope or enjoy a panoramic view of the night skies!

Just a short drive from picturesque Bellingham and located in the Northumberland National Park, Greystead Old Church is also within easy reach of Kielder Water and Observatory, Hadrian's Wall, the Northumberland Heritage Coast, the Scottish Borders and the market town of Hexham.

Salmon, sea trout and trout fishing can be arranged via the owners on adjacent stretches of the North Tyne.

Greystead Old Church forms the perfect base for touring the area's many delights.
