very satisfying holiday
exellent hosts, could'nt do enough for you,
property very clean and comfortable, perfect for relaxing, ideal location for days out,, village of lanchester couple of miles away, enough shops and pubs, would go back again anytime
good base for visiting Durham and beautiful countryside around
We have stayed in this cottage three times while our son was at Durham University. It provides a peaceful base and in winter the log fire makes it a cosy retreat. There are lovely views from the triple aspect sitting room. The owners are very kind and helpful. The cottage is nicely furnished and the beds are comfortable. There is ample linen and towels. The only downside is that there is only one WC which is in the bathroom and there is no dishwasher. The surrounding countryside is lovely and quite undiscovered and there is much to see and do - the cities of Durham and Newcastle, roman sites, castles, industrial heritage, walks and the coast.
A very comfortable cottage in a lovely setting. Friendly and very helpful owners. Close to Durham and Beamish, which provide wonderful days out. Hope to return.
Cosy, comfortable and welcoming cottage near Durham
Very warm welcome from the adjacent owner, but not intrusive. Lovely house, very well equipped and clean. Large kitchen with dining area. Fantastic open fire with a constant, plentiful supply of logs. Could have spent the week indoors doing jigsaws and playing games, but there was lots to explore in the area.
Lanchester had sufficient shops for us, plus a good Italian restaurant. Durham within easy reach.
Well positioned for exploring Northumberland - Hadrian's wall, Killhope Lead mines & Souter lighthouse were all excellent.
Would definitely stay again.
Only drawback (minr) was the need to drive everywhere.
A very well appointed house both comfortable and welcoming as were the owners. We hope to return and will recommend to family and friends wholeheartedly. Area has many different activities and interests available and so should suit everyone at any age.Horses, ponies & chickens endearing!
Home from home in a great location
We were made to feel very welcome, but at the same time the owners were not a bit intrusive whilst being there if needed. The cottage is very comfortable and well appointed. Nothing was missing and even the TV had a larger screen than usual with full freeview. The location is quiet without being isolated and there are many places to visit at all points of the compass. It is ideal for visiting Durham which we needed for our son's graduation day.
Chrissie and Gavin have succeeded in making this a real home from home and we really look forward to coming again.
Superb. Much more than expected
It was a joy to get 'home' to this beautiful cottage and its surroundings after long days out and about.
Breakfast in the conservatory was a pleasure watching the birds and horses; but the evenings relaxing were the best. Myself and two friends had promised ourselves trips up to the local, or out for a meal each night, but the cottage was so cosy and comfortable, we didn't want to move - so just made our own meals in the fantastic kitchen - which had everything, and spent enjoyable evenings in the delightful sitting room watching TV, reading, writing or talking.
So much thought has gone into the comfort of the visitors, that we couldn't fault a thing.
Even hot water bottles in the superb large bedrooms and plenty of books for the adults and games for the children.
As for the delightful owners - what can we say ? Thank you for the greeting on arrival, the bowl of fresh eggs in the kitchen. Your kindness and help throughout the week.
We'll be back. Thats for sure !!
Very relaxing & friendly.
A lovely clean and homily cottage in a lovely quiet location, with great views. Well equipped with a log fire. Little touches like having logs and rolled up paper available for the fire made all the difference. Would recommend and will probably be back ourselves one day.
Don't tell everybody - they will all want to come!
a lovely week of mixed warm and cold front weather offering atmospheric views. Our daughter ran the Great North Half Marathon and raised several thousand pounds for the National Society for autism, she's a Specialist Nurse. Hurray !
Great Place to stay
We all enjoyed are stay. Great get away with friendly owners who take pride in looking after their guests.
Will be going back for another relaxing time.
Charming cottage in easy reach of the many places of interest in Durham made for a great weeks break.
superb cottage superb location
Absolutely perfect cottage and location.Everything you could want of a cottage with stunning views and friendly but unintrusive owners next door. Short drive to lovely village for good shops and food.
beauitful, pet friendly cottage with all the facitlties you need
We were most impressed with the style and quality of this cottage. It had everything we needed with a large kitchen/diner and beautiful lounge. Lots of leaflets with local attractions and some good reading material The coutryside location was perfect for us with our dog. Lanchester provided a good location for walks with the dog and had all the shops we needed. I would reccommend its use at any time of year.
Wonderful Cottage, with beautiful views from every window!
By far the best equipped place we have ever stayed. Very friendly owners who will help and advise you if you need it. A great base to explore Couny Durham or further if you choose. My family highly recommends a visit to Beamish Museum and a trip up to Bamburgh castle.
A pleasurable stay amid lovely countryside
Have stayed in this idealic cottage several times and will definetely return. Owners so friendly and there is loads to do in the area.Cottage is so comfortable, we always spend a day lazing and enjoying it and the scenery.
The cottage was blissfully comfortable, quiet, relaxing and spotlessly clean. The cottage was stocked with everything we could need for a family of 3 for a week, including washing machine, dishwasher, wi-fi and crockery. The owners live in the cottage next door but are in no way intrusive - they are very friendly and welcoming and are on-tap if anything is needed. It is also a great location - very quiet with fantastic views but with easy access of many family friendly activites. This week we have; visited Beamish Museum (twice), Gibside (National Trust property and gardens), Durham, Newcastle, Druridge Bay (beautiful, clean, quiet beach) and had a boat ride on the Tyne. We have had a wonderful week and will definitely stay at Granary Cottage again. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
The owners were excellent hosts and we thank them for making us feel so much at home, they could not have been more helpful and friendly, we look forward to returning in the future.
A view from every window and a roaring log fire. Who could ask for more?
The cottage really was lovely and cosy, with a very friendly cat! It made an excellent base for exploring the local area, and the owners were very friendly.
We liked it so much our parents booked up to go on our recommendation. A place for total chill out. Great for kids too, as plenty of space, outside area and entertainment from the hens, ponies and cats.
Peace & quiet. Friendly, having a few animals around helped with entertaining the children. Lots of space, felt safe regarding the children. Easy driving distance to attractions for the children.
The views were spectacular from the cottage. The owners were very welcoming and friendly.
Owners very helpful & their chickens and cats visited the garden. Good all round views - a lovely position.
The view from the conservatory was amazing, you could sit for hours just looking down the valley and we had excellent weather which made it even better. The owners who live next to the cottage were very friendly and helpful.
Standard of accommodation was exceptional as was the thoughtful and friendly welcome of the owners. Lovely rural and peaceful setting with nearby animals that were a joy to watch. An excellent place to stay. Very clean, exceptional cottage.
Lovely cottage, great views, fantastic log fire on a cold October evening.
Young children catered for at the cottage. The cottage is an excellent retreat from a "hectic life" but also a wonderful base to explore from.
There are plenty of walks with our dog around the area without going too far out. The Brown Horse pub let us take our dog into the bar for food, but the Punch Bowl @Satley will not let dogs in. Plenty of space for us and our son and daughter in law along with their 10 year old son.
Wonderful welcome - the cottage decorated for Xmas. Food laid on for breakfast after our planned (very) late arrival. Excellent situation with undroken country views.
The cottage was exceptionally warm and comfortable. We had a lovely relaxing time. The owner made us very welcome.
An immensely kind and thoughtful welcome. The hosts are always very helpful. This was in the middle of a cold February and a log fire had been laid and the cottage was already warm when we arrived. The cottage is very well stocked with all the necessities for a comfotable and happy stay and, while retaining a traditonal feel, is up to date with all its equipment and decor. There are lovely views from most windows and a very nice conservatory(with heating!). The property is quiet and secluded yet within an easy drive of good pubs and many local attractions. There is plenty of literature available if you don't know the area.
Nice quiet location with enclosed garden. Plenty of things to do in the area.
A lovely cottage in beautiful surronding with very friendly and helpful owners. The home grown eggs were particularly welcome and lovely.
Nice welcome. More than enough logs for the fire. Excellent setting. Huge amount to do nearby, especially recommend Killhope Lead Mining museum - even two teenagers had a great day there.
...great views from every window. The owners were excellent hosts. Everything we needed was there.
A very nice cottage with very friendly owners situated next door. We always had plenty of firewood, that the owner chopped for us. A good situation, very quiet and peaceful with the village only a two-minute drive. Highly recommended to anyone who is thinking about staying there.
The hosts were welcoming and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The cottage was a true home from home. The hosts went to the effort of putting up a Christmas tree and decorations to ensure that our Christmas in England was a warm and homely one. I could quite easily live there full time! Full marks to a cottage (and hosts) that I would happily recommend to anyone.
We loved the peace and tranquility of The Granary, a complete world away from normal hectic life. The children loved the owners' animals and all the things to do in the area. Our thanks to the owners for making us so welcome and looking after us during our stay. We hope to go back next year, this time for 2 weeks!
Beautiful views from every aspect. A well-equipped, spacious property, with welcoming hosts and lots to see and do in the area of County Durham.
The owners were exceptionally welcoming. They even provided a bottle of wine to celebrate our son's graduation. The cottage was delightful and the countryside all around was spectacular. We would happily return!
A very relaxing holiday in a well kept cottage. The owners are very welcoming.
A very peaceful location, ideal for recharging the batteries. A safe garden for children. The owners were very helpful. There is lots to do in the wider areas as well as close by.
Lovely cottage in a lovely area. The owners were also very welcoming and helpful.
This was our third holiday in the property. The owners were as welcoming as always.
Excellent location and one of the best cottages so far. Nicest hosts yet. Cosy and comfortable with added homely touches - this cottage made our Christmas special!
Our fourth time there (daughter at University just down the road). Same lovely welcome. Very nice warm cottage - and plenty of logs to burn as well. Vindolanda on Hadrian's Wall is stunning even in February.
Lovely country location. Animals on the farm/in fields to watch. Conservatory a real plus. Appreciated the open fire and fuel provided, also plums and blackberries just outside the cottage to which we were invited to help ourselves.
A good location, friendly owners but not intrusive, had a good time, will be going back again, thanks for a great cottage.
The cottage surpassed all my expectations. The location is lovely. The owners were friendly but not intrusive. There was a ready supply of wood for the fire so even in October the house was cosy. I enjoyed my stay very much and would like to visit again.
Superb cottage. Beautifully decorated. Good location for a variety of activities. Ponies and horses very popular with the children.
The perfect property if you like peace and quiet. The days out are very varied, there is enough for all ages. The nearby Lanchester has all you need with two good pubs and the owners were the perfect hosts.
The owners were very friendly, helpful and informative.
Everything. Beautiful cottage in outstanding countryside, peaceful, lots of places to visit. Nice and cosy.
Another great holiday in a lovely area. Cottage is very good and owners welcoming and helpful. Near to many of the best locations in the area.
We spent a wonderful few days in the Durham area - loads to do, beautiful scenery, very warm welcome (including posh chocolate biscuits!) , fantastic log fire with unlimited fuel. All combined to make a really relaxing holiday.
The owners were very friendly and welcoming - a lovely cottage in peaceful surroundings - the conservatory was the icing on the cake.
Ideal surroundings, tranquil settings and good location. Log fire, conservatory, garden. Whole cottage was as anticipated from website, that is why we booked it.
Friendly and very helpful owners. This was very comfortable cottage in a delightful setting. Close to Durham and Beamish, which provides an excellent day out.
Pleasant, comfy surroundings. No road noise, just peace and tranquility. Friendly, helpful owners. Perfect.
This is a lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Cosy, well equipped and very comfortable. The owners were the perfect hosts. There are plenty of things to do in the area and the weather was very good.
The friendliness of the hosts, the wonderful position of the cottage, the wonderful open fire and abundance of fuel for it. It was perfect. I just wish that I didn't want to praise this cottage and couple so highly as it may make it more difficult to book this cottage next time!!
A fairly remote cottage at altitude with very friendly landlords.
Good base for so many attractions of all types. Warm welcome. Beautiful views.
Excellent location for Durham/Northumberland. A very comfortable cottage with very welcoming and caring owners.
The peaceful setting of the cottages, the friendliness of the owners.
A lovely clean, warm and comfortable cottage which made it easy to relax in. Very friendly and helpful owners but not intrusive. Peaceful and beautiful setting with lots of attractions in the surrounding area to visit.
Coming 'home' to The Granary after a long day out... It was so comfortable and cosy - all three ladies were so sorry to leave it to come back home.
Our hosts were the nicest, kindest couple. Even a welcome dish of fresh eggs awaited us. I could go on, but there is no other word other than fabulous. Even this is not sufficient. Not sure of the Tourist Board Star Grade, but it deserves the highest, plus distinction.
It was excellent value and a very comfortable cottage. We were handy for Diggerland and Beamish which my grandson (OK we all) enjoyed. A particular asset was the owners horse and pony in the field and chickens in the yard. We were also allowed to take our dog with us. It exceeded our expectations.
Lovely cosy cottage, isolated but not remote, beautiful log fire, well situated for visiting Hadrian's Wall, Tees Valley, Newcastle and Durham City.
Fantastic views from almost every room.
Very friendly owner living next door.
We liked everything about the cottage.
We were all out a lot of the time but it was lovely coming home to a great place. we are the first ones to have the cottage after the winter. Warm friendly service from the owner, we hope to come back again soon.
A spacious, characterful cottage in a truly peaceful location.
Absolutely gorgeous cottage. Had everything we needed, With superb views of the surrounding countryside. A relaxing time had by all.
The cottage was equipped to a very high standard and the owners were very helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone.
Gorgeous cottage with everything that you need. It was warm and cosy and we loved it!
Really friendly owners. A very nice property, well maintained and it had everything we could ever need for a comfortable stay. We really enjoyed our stay there. Would highly recommend this property to anyone.
A very cosy and welcoming cottage, in beautiful scenery. The owners were friendly and welcoming, but unobtrusive. The cottage was near to interesting and attractive places and also near enough to shops. We chose the property as it was close enough to Newcastle to spend some time with our oldest son who is at university there.
Nicely furnished and the setting was fantastic - views from every window. Friendly owners and could not fault anything.
Very comfortable cottage with lots of little extras. Lovely views from all the windows.
The cottage and the owners were fantastic. Eggs from the hens were great. Altogether wonderful!
The cottage was home from home with wonderful views and great hospitality.

Best equipped cottage I have ever stayed in. Fantastic views from every window and the conservatory. The owner was ever so friendly. A very enjoyable holiday.
Out in the wilds, this is a beautiful cottage in a peaceful situation, with very helpful and charming owners. The cottage is fully equipped with everything you could want, in fact a home from home.
Lovely situation and views, very peaceful and the owners were friendly but unobtrusive. Our dog was made welcome and walking was available. The local village met all our needs for shopping, eating out etc. Altogether a very enjoyable week - we hope to return.
Peaceful location and beautiful setting.
The hosts and the cottage were 1st Class, could not ask for anything better in an area with lovely views.
The cottage, the owners and the lovely views. Everything in general.
We would like you to keep it a secret as it was so good.
Excellent cottage, well equipped, comfortable beds and furniture and a high level of cleanliness throughout.Friendly owners and plenty of leaflets about local tourist attractions, lots of games for children and books. One of the best cottages we have stayed in and an excellent price.
The cottage was cosy, comfortable and clean and the owners were very friendly and helpful
The cottage was spacious, well maintained, very comfortable and in a beautiful location.
Beautiful views. Friendly helpful owners. The fire was laid when we got there. Warm and cosy property. Lovely walks. Perfect - we would love to go back.
The owners were very welcoming and helpful. The cottage was roomy, well appointed and comfortable. The location was ideal for us set in open country with wonderful views.
Spending time in a quiet, beautiful area but within a short driving distance of towns/cities/museums where there was plenty to keep people of whatever age happy and busy.
Cleanliness, comfort and cosy. So peaceful and quiet with beautiful views.
Very nice property in a lovely location. Owners are also very nice and extremely helpful.
The views from every window were breathtaking. We were made to feel very welcome. The cottage was so quiet but near places. We visited relatives but still found time to go for walks and do the "tourist thing."
A lovely comfortable home with great thought given to details. Near to great walks and tourist sites.
The cottage was really nice clean and very well equipped. In a good location. We look forward to going back there again in the future.
It is such a peaceful place. It is well appointed, and the owners are thoughtful and make you so very welcome, yet they are never intrusive.
Warm cosy, welcoming, friendly and generally an excellent standard. This has been our our second visit and will not be our last.
The cottage was beautiful, the owners friendly, helpful but not intrusive. The log fire was particularly appreciated to add to the cosiness on a November evening. The bed was very comfortable, all in all a real home from home. We will definitely be back and we are already recommending the cottage to friends and family.
The Granary is comfortable and well-equipped for four to five people. The owners are courteous and helpful. The house is in a quiet and tranquil setting with pleasant views of the surrounding hills, but we were surprised at the number of interesting places we could visit within a short drive.
Wonderful accommodation. The location was so peaceful and had beautiful views. The owners were so friendly and helpful, which went a long way to making this a great holiday. We will definitely return.
Friendly and helpful owners. The cottage is in a nice location with a good feel to the property. I felt relaxed and at home there from the start.
The cottage was really lovely with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. It was extremely comfortable inside with plenty of space for the four of us. This is a great place to stay.
The views from every window were fantastic and the owners were very friendly and helpful. This was our second time visiting and we are already thinking of a third visit.
After having spent several years visiting the UK and staying in many cottages, The Granary is up there with the best of them. The owners were great hosts, the cottage was faultless, and the area and views were wonderful. We felt very privileged to have stayed there.
The cottage was better than 5 star and the owners where very helpful with the area. We could not expect more of the accommodation and the access to things to do in the Durham area.
We loved the wonderful country views from the cottage and garden. The cottage was well equipped and cosy providing a relaxing break for all the family.
Lovely cottage in superb location with helpful owners.
This is a beautiful cottage and should be rated as 4 star not 3 star. We had a lovely and comfortable holiday. The views from the cottage were fantastic. My two little dogs made themselves at home as soon as we got into the cottage. The fenced off garden was brilliant. The owners could not have been any more friendly and helpful.
I feel the three star rating of the property is misleading as we have stayed in a number of 4 star rated properties that are not as good as this! The property is excellent and the owners warm and welcoming. The views from the gardens and the conservatory are wonderful. The cottage is an ideal base for visiting a beautiful and interesting area of our country.
The cottage was well equipped and comfortable. We loved the beautiful countryside setting it was so relaxing to sit in the garden and enjoy the panoramic views and listen to the sound of bird song.
We liked the very friendly and helpful owners. We also liked the quiet and peaceful location and very comfortable cottage.
The comfort, cleanliness and location of the property is outstanding. The views from every window are breath-taking. The walk-in modern power-shower was much appreciated by all of us, especially the three teenage grand-daughters! The cottage is a pleasure to return to after a day out. We would not hesitate to re-book another holiday here as it is truly one of the best properties we have ever stayed in.
