The Granary was the perfect choice for our holiday and we spent a peaceful and relaxing fortnight in this beautiful and comfortable cottage. There are many things to do and see in the local area but we were also very happy to spend time relaxing at the cottage, enjoying the views, bird-watching and sitting in the garden. Kate is a fantastic host and I would highly recommend her cottages and this beautiful part of Northumberland.
Location beautiful, stunning views, quiet but for sheep and lambs that kept us entertained, lovely garden, some may find it a little far out but we loved it, peace and quiet,
We have now stayed in both properties on the farm. The Hemmel was truly amazing but The Granary is simply the best we've ever stayed in.
Main bedroom is downstairs with beautiful views, dexter cows in the field next door, sheep & lambs in fields beyond that.
The kitchen is upstairs as well as the lounge with that amazing view.
Each bedroom as en suite bathroom one even has bath. All the fixtures & fittings are good quality & everything is spotlessly clean.
Kate the owner is very welcoming & even left some fruit cake for us on arrival!
The garden outside the accommodation is lovely too & there is even a sun room with another bathroom.
There is a DVD player & Sky TV, wifi, some books, board games for when you are board with the view (not sure if that is possible)....
I cannot recommend this accommodation highly enough, it is simply outstanding.
We will be back!!!
Loved this place....beautiful accommodation, log fire, stone walls, wooden beams & amazing views. The Granary was everything I expected & more. It has everything you need as if you were at home, to be honest, it was more comfortable than being at home, especially with Kate, the owner's home made scones, cream & jam on arrival. It's situated on a lovely farm amidst countless walks in and around the village of Otterburn. I absolutely loved it, it's peaceful without being boring. I even found myself sitting for ages birdwatching from the kitchen/diner area admiring the Woodpeckers, Blue & Yellow Tits and other birds that I don't know the names of. It's a lovely drive to the usual attractions in Alnwick & the coast... I cannot fault this place. I almost didn't want to write such a good review because I don't want it to become too popular!! The owners have done such a lovely job with the Granary...book it!
The Granary was immaculate in every way, warm and beautifully maintained with far reaching views of the moors and surrounding countryside. The owner was very welcoming and on hand if needed but otherwise left us to enjoy our holiday. It was the perfect base for exploring many interesting and historic places within easy reach and was a pleasure to return to each evening.

Kate is a fantastic host and has made the Granary an extremely welcoming and beautiful spot for a holiday. The cottage is really clean and comfortable with everything you could need on hand. The views from the bedroom and lounge are stunning and it made for a really relaxing break. We weren't far from the main spots to visit in Northumberland and had some great days out. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it.
