The Granary is a cottage to fall in love with. From the moment you drive through the gates, to discovering and falling for this sumptuously appointed and spacious holiday home, to waving goodbye and wishing you didn't have to, I cannot rate it highly enough. For a couple or small family it is just superb and my fiance and I only wish we could have stayed there during the summer months to enjoy the patio etc fully. The bedrooms, kitchen and bathrooms particularly are as if brand new, simply stunning and near faultless, the 2 power showers excellent, although the shower cubicle base did fill up to the limit within about ten minutes for those who like me enjoy a longer shower! But the over bath shower next door was of the same type and did not suffer this minor problem. Great tiles, mirrors, lighting, heated towel rails, etc etc. Kitchen utility area and downstairs toilet beyond it are a real bonus and all so well presented you felt pampered. Fully equipped kitchen, only gripes were tin opener wasn't working and no egg cups, I defy you to find any others! The sunsets from the large kitchen cartwheel window were beautiful and provided some lovely snaps of my car. The plentiful books/crosswords/Dvds/CDs/games were a nice touch and added to our holiday, as did Hamish, the friendly doorstop dog! Comfy beds, although we found the 2 seater sofa of only average comfort, a bit slidey and needed a throw. Enjoyed the candles and woodburner and melting pleasantly even during the cold spell, plenty of wood and coal supplied for a week. Central heating superb although smoke alarm annoyingly activated whenever grilled anything. Lots of places to visit in all directions, Alnwick, Berwick, Morpeth, Rothbury, Coast, what more do you want? The owners were very cheerful and helpful although they were in process of moving out. We were greeted by the new owners who we also found friendly. Ah, the memories. Best holiday in years!!!
Everthing of highest quality and attention to detail throughout

We have stayed in some exceptional properties over the years but this one was outstanding. The quality of the towelling/bedding etc. exceptional and all the little extras such as good quality toiletries, lovely cakes on arrival, tea/coffe etc. and also the lovely welcome from the owner all made this lovely autumn break.
a highly enjoyable and comfortable first visit to Northumberland

Delightful hosts, cream scones, wine and flowers on arrival. Everything was perfect. Nothing was forgotten and high standard in everything in the cottage. A must for anyone. Will definitely recommend to all and visit again.
An exceptional holiday home from home.

The Granary in Longframlington is an idyllic holiday home. Fixtures and fittings are extremely tasteful and of the highest quality throughout. Our hosts were charming, very welcoming and provided the most delicious home made cakes!
A perfect location, really good bistro pubs locally, and restaurants within easy driving distance. Alnwick and The Gardens and Castle are within a 15 minute drive, the town also has a nice little theatre. The countryside, coast, castles and walks are breathtaking - what more can I say.
I will definitely stay at The Granary again but for longer!
