The Granary at Breamish Parks is a single-level holiday cottage sitting in a rural position surrounded by farmland just a mile from the Northumberland village of Powburn. With spectacular views over the Cheviot Hills and a lovely country setting, this welcoming holiday cottage sleeps two guests and is an ideal retreat for relaxing and discovering the beauty of Northumberland, the largest Dark Sky Park in Europe. The cottage is single-level so suitable for those who prefer to not climb stairs.
Perfect for couples, The Granary is an annex to the owners home but has its own parking and entrance so guests afford a good degree of privacy with the knowledge that the owners are close by if needed. Four Star Gold standard of self-catering, amazing views, spacious accommodation, WiFi, EV charging and a private patio (with more of those amazing views!) are just a few of the cottage's highlights.
Powburn village is just a mile away and sits in the picturesque Breamish Valley. It has a village store for forgotten provisions, petrol station, pub and a vet if needed. Sitting on the A697 people often pass through Powburn whilst travelling between England and Scotland and the village provides an excellent base for exploring Northumberland and the Scottish Borders.
Visit the market town of Wooler, a walkers paradise sitting at the foot of the Cheviot Hills; the picturesque town of Rothbury surrounded by spectacular countryside and Alnwick with its beautiful gardens, cobbled streets lined with independent shops and eateries, and spectacular castle that played a part as Hogwarts in some of the Harry Potter movies. The Northumberland coastline, protected as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is also within easy driving distance providing a wealth of gorgeous sandy beaches, amazing wildlife and attractions not to be missed like Bamburgh Castle and boat trips to the Farne Island and Holy Island.
Slightly further afield but still within driving distance are the attractive villages and towns of the Scottish Borders like Kelso - a lovely place to spend a day browsing interesting shops and indulging in fine dining. Alternatively, stay closer to home and enjoy the peace and tranquility that surrounds The Granary, with 60 acres of private farmland with grassland, woods and wildlife including wild deer and hares.
