  • "This is a first class property with all the amenities you could wish for."

    A real "home from home"

    Reviewed by StephenJun 2022

  • "The Granary is in a fabulous location for touring and walking throughout Northumberland."

    Lots of coastal walks and castles nearby and Longframlington also has some lovely pubs serving good food. The owners are very knowledgeable about the local area and happily offer advice. Furnished to a very high standard and impeccably kept, it’s home from home and also set in beautiful quiet grounds. The welcome milk, chocolates, cake and wine only enhances the whole experience. Definitely one of the nicest cottages we’ve stayed in.

  • "We had a wonderfully relaxing stay at The Granary."

    The property is lovely, in a delightful rural setting -- we were amazed to find a hare on the lawn early one morning! The property was spotlessly clean and had everything you could wish for and all decorated to a high standard.Thank you for making us feel so welcome and for the milk, wine, cake and flowers. It was easy to visit Bamburgh with its amazing beach and castle, Alnwick, Seahouses, Warkworth Castle, Morpeth. We hope to return and highly recommend the property.

  • "This was one of the best Sykes Cottages we have stayed in."

    The attention to detail was amazing and the owners had thought of absolutely everything to help us enjoy our holiday. The cottage is ideally placed for walks in the country and by the sea and lazy evenings were spent in front of the log fire. We really couldn't ask for much more.

  • "I think the cottage is one of the loveliest I have stayed in."

    It is extremely well equipped and clean and the owners are next door and only too happy to help if needed (which we didn't really need as everything worked and was to hand) The location is good for travel to NT Cragside, the Northumberland coast and Holy Island is less than 1 hour away. Very easy to find things to do. Whilst the cottage is down a country lane it was so quiet, peaceful and enjoyable to sit out on the patio. I don't usually write reviews but I felt I must give credit where it's due. .

  • "Lovely cottage."

    Has everything you need. Nice friendly owners. Perfect spot for visiting the many attractions in Northumberland our favourite being the Farne Islands. Lots of Puffins and terns at this time of year. Cragside, Alnwick and Banburgh all great places to visit. Would definitely return to The Granary if visiting Northumberland again.

  • "The Granary is a lovely Cottage in Longframlington and the owners, Gill and Stephen, were extremely welcoming."

    A bottle of wine and a beautiful vase of flowers were waiting for us. The facilities were excellent, two first class ensuites plus a downstairs toilet, and the kitchen had everything you could need, with a separate utility room containing washing machine and tumbler dryer. Sitting room with log burner and a separate dining area overlooking the gardens. Lovely grounds outside with the hens and dogs making occasional visits! A lovely base to return to following each day’s exploration of castles, beaches, gift shops and restaurants. We highly recommend The Granary.

  • "The photos of The Granary on the Sykes web site do not do the property justice."

    This is the nicest Sykes cottage I have stayed in. The owners were great, coming to greet us and check everything was OK within a couple of hours of our arrival. The property is a barn conversion and has been done to a very high standard, with en suites in both bedrooms as well as another toilet downstairs next to the utility room. The log burner in the living room was prepared with kindling and wood ready to be lit when we arrived, alongside a stock of wood for the week. The village of Longframlington is very nice, with two decent pubs. We had an excellent meal at the Granby Inn, and also had a couple of wonderful breakfasts at the Running Fox bakery / cafe. Over the course of the week we had days out in Edinburgh, Alnwick Castle, Hadrians Wall, Seahouses and Lindisfarne as well as a boat trip out around the Farne Islands. We had a fantastic time at The Granary and our kids have asked if we can go back again next year.
