Situated only a mile from Hadrian’s Wall and enjoying spectacular uninterrupted open views across the wild and wonderful Northumbrian countryside nestles Granary Cottage, a charming self-catering cottage in a beautiful rural setting. Forming part of an idyllic complex of four other holiday cottages, the accommodation within Granary Cottage is immaculately presented throughout. The lounge has patio doors leading to a private patio, an idyllic spot to dine alfresco and admire the breathtaking far reaching views whilst the sun sinks. Every effort has been made to ensure these delightful cottages offer eco-friendly accommodation. Dogs are particularly welcome to Granary Cottage, a wild grass meadow has been designed with your pet in mind. Enjoy a morning scamper through the field opposite Granary Cottage or an evening stroll and listen to the call of the curlew soaring high above. Granary Cottage boasts an elevated position in the very heart of Hadrian’s Wall Country, set within England’s largest Heritage site - the most northerly of National Parks.
Granary Cottage can be booked independently or together with The Horseshoe (CC334051), Tackroom Cottage (CC334059), Stable Cottage (CC334060) and The Farmhouse (CC334080) to accommodate the gathering of family and friends.
