The half walled garden to the front hosts a picnic table with fabulous views to the south. Linen and fuel included in the rent and beds are made up for your arrival. Sorry no pets Free Wi Fi Set in the heart of Northumberland's rural country side Grandma's is the perfect place to get away from it all and recharge your battery's yet only three and half miles from Thropton and five from Rothbury and within easy reach of all the tourist attractions Northumberland has to offer. If you prefer not travel we have several walks which can be done from the cottages where you will see the abundant wild life deer, owls, buzzards sparrow hawks and many species of birds. In April there may well be lambs to feed or watch a lamb being born. In June/July see the sheep being sheared. Watch Mirk our over enthusiastic young collie learn the tricks of the trade on how to round the sheep up (not always getting it right). See the combine cut the crops and the bailer bale the hay and straw. Feed the free range hens. PLEASE NOTE WE ONLY TAKE SHORT BRAKES 2 WEEKS IN ADVANCE IN THE HIGH SEASON, please email for prices etc More

Wonderfull landscapes in the heart of Northumberland. A nice place to discover the country. The cottage is very quiet.

This was our first time in Northumberland, and we decided to stay in a self-catering cottage instead of a Travelodge or Premier Inn. Our experience at Grandma's Cottage has been most pleasant. We found the location of the cottage attractive as it is central to the attractions we wanted to visit. We visited Edinburgh, Bamburgh, Kielder Water and Forest, Hexham and Newcastle upon Tyne in a week, using the cottage as the base. The cottage itself is exceptionally well-equipped, and both bedrooms have breath-taking views of the countryside. The owners are tremendously friendly (as are the two dogs and the hens that roam around the farm) and have been most helpful during our stay. The cottage is definitely recommended for anyone wanting to visit Northumbria and to get away from the hustle and bustle of the cities.

We always get a warm welcome and are greeted by the dogs immediately. The location is wonderful for a complete getaway from the stresses and strains of life. The cottage is very comfortable and everything you need is there, including complimentary freshly laid eggs and sloe gin! There is always plenty to do in the surrounding area and lots of lovely walks around the farm.
