  • "We were really pleased with our stay at the Granary near Morpeth and our first experience with Sykes Cottages."

    The Granary was super clean, comfortable and well equipped and just what we were looking for with 5 adults and a wee dog. Booking was easy and efficient and we will definitely be looking again in the future. This particular property is well placed for us as situated half way between home and Edinburgh where we have family. A great find.

  • "Nice cottage, has all the home comforts needed for a break, nice and quiet location."

    The beds were nice and comfy and we liked the garden area. The only negative I have was there was so much dog hair on the kitchen chair covers from previous guests that we couldn’t use the dining table to eat but it didn’t put a dampener on things. Overall a lovely quiet holiday and I would definitely recommend the granary to others.

  • "We loved the location and the high standard of fittings in our cottage."

    Cleanliness was second to none also. We only used one of the 3bedrooms available . Biggest flaw was the heating throughout. It never did get warm enough where we needed it and it went off during the day which was not good as my wife spent most of her time in the cottage as she has disabilities. The staircase was too steep unfortunately for her also ,however ,it has not meant we would not consider a different cottage which would need to be all on one level such as a bungalow .

  • "The house was clean and well equipped."

    The beds were comfortable and we enjoyed having Sky, so could watch a favourite show of ours. However, the house was a bit too cold for us which affected our comfort. The location was good and the gardens well tended.

  • "We really enjoyed the beautiful interior of the Granary- so bright and clean."

    The only negative was the staircase. It did not have a handrail which you could wrap your hands around and the stairs were shallow and very slippery. There was an accident waiting to happen.

  • "I booked this holiday for my daughter and her family as we hadn't seen them for a long while because they live in Shropshire."

    They loved the Granary. It was a typical country style cottage and the rooms were very spacious. Furnished beautifully with all homely comforts and utilities. The pictures on the site don't do it justice but I can assure anyone booking this holiday cottage, they won't be disappointed. Parking was good too and the location is perfect in a quiet village with a short drive to the beautiful town of Morpeth. Easy access to the A1 that leads you to many historic and interesting places to visit. I highly recommend this cottage. It was worth every penny.

  • "Property was as advertised, well presented, clean and comfortable."

    The off-road parking was within the grounds and easily accessible. The car parking discs provided were very useful in the local towns and the wi-fi worked well throughout the property. We would certainly stay here again.

    There are a lot of nice touches; in the kitchen high quality crockery, plenty of everything, dishwasher and freezer. Sky television and Alexa in living room. Plenty of towels and mini shower gel and shampoo in the bathroom. Outside space beautifully maintained. We would highly recommend this property.

    The kitchen was lovley,we have been in a few cottages,but this one was the best,it really did have every thing that you have at home.you could have stayed in the kitchen all day.the only draw back was that on your website it stated that there would be bunk beds

    Thank you for your kind review. However I don’t understand your comment about bunk beds;; they are in the end bedroom clearly visible and useable Property Owner

The property

Morpeth 3.2 miles.

Tucked away within a rural countryside setting in the village of Longhirst, on the grounds of the owners home, rests this charming stone-built holiday home, The Granary.

Set across two levels and boasting an interior full of traditional character, The Granary makes an idyllic base for both families and friends alike looking for an adventure in the North East.

Park up in either of your two off-road parking spaces before unloading your bags and making your way through the quaint patio area, idyllically positioned at the foot of your new home-from-home, and stepping inside to begin your staycation.

Be charmed by the spectacular traditional décor of the open-plan kitchen/diner, beautifully adorned with exposed wooden beams, terracotta tiled flooring and a charming farmhouse style interior, equipped with a range of fantastic facilities to entice any budding chef.

Uncork a bottle of wine and gather your loved ones together at the rustic wooden dining table taking centre stage in the sociable space to tuck-in to the fruits of your labor.

Moving through the property, discover the spacious sitting room, enveloped in light welcomed in through the patio doors and thoughtfully laid out with a pair of elegant chesterfield sofas and sumptuous armchairs gathered in front of the television, perfect for settling down of an evening with a movie marathon.

If you're not ready for the celebrations to end, carry the conversation outdoors to the rear courtyard, where you can soak in the countryside setting of your fabulous holiday home and meet likeminded holiday makers.

As the day draws to a close, climb the stairs to the first floor where you'll find three well-presented bedrooms, comprising of a rustic four-poster double bed, a standard double bed and a triple bunk, each offering ample storage space to unpack your belongings and make yourself at home.

Completing the property is a family bathroom, fit with both a bath and walk-in shower, giving guests the choice between an indulgent soak following a day of adventures or a quick morning rinse ahead of a new day.

A short walk from your doorstep will bring you to Longhirst Hall Golf Course, where avid golfers can take their pick between two 18-hole lakeland courses, each enveloped by the spectacular greenery of the rolling Northumberland countryside; a truly lovely spot to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

For a coastal adventure, visit the popular seaside town of Whitley Bay, where you can soak in the sunshine from the glorious sands of Whitley Bay Beach, try your luck at the amusement arcades lining the promenade, or indulge in the seaside tradition of fresh fish and chips.

The historic market town of Morpeth rests a short distance away, home to a plethora of eateries and well-stocked convenience stores to help assist with your self-catering needs, along with a host of sights and attractions worth visiting, including Morpeth Castle, Morpeth Golf Club and the award-winning Carlisle Park, decorated in formal gardens and ancient woodland.

Jump in the car and journey south to the bustling city of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, where you can marvel at the changing colours of the Millenium Bridge from the Quayside, tour the remarkable collection of British artwork at the Laing Art Gallery, wander through the stalls at Grainger Market, or get dressed to the nines and enjoy a night on the town, with a large selection of bars, clubs and pubs to frequent.

With all of this and more, choose The Granary as an excellent base for an escape to the North East.
