Converted Granary located on a working farm in the Rede Valley, only 15 miles form the Scottish Border. Enjoys quick and easy access to many of Northumberland's finest attractions including: Hadrian's Wall; Kielder Water and Forest Park; the Cheviot Hills; and Alnwick Castle and Gardens. Located on the edge of the Northumberland National Park and within the newly designated International Dark Skies Park, the Granary is perfect for star gazers and anyone seeking a relaxing countryside break.
A great spot for families or groups of friends sharing as each bedroom has an ensuite shower room or private bathroom. There are a multitude of rural pursuits on the doorstep and the owner is a Massage Therapist with a therapy room conveniently located at Old Town Farm. Treat yourself to a relaxing Hot Stone Massage or an invigorating Thai Massage after a tough day of mountain biking, hill walking, fishing or a round of golf!
The Granary has three double bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms can be either double or twin and one is a garden room with some of the best views around! The house has a quirky 'upside down' layout to take advantage of the views and has beamed ceilings and a cosy sitting room with log burning stove. Well behaved dogs are welcome by arrangement. The large garden is full to overflowing with flowers and has a shallow pond (please note, families with toddlers) and a decking area, perfect for summer barbecues.

Northern England region
The Rede Valley is located in rural Northumberland, 15 miles from the Scottish borders. It was home to the infamous Border Reivers in centuries gone by. It is a beautiful, wild and rugged area. Isolated but enjoying good road access. It lies in the Northumberland National Park which is fantastic for outdoor leisure pursuits - fishing, walking, cycling, horse riding, to name but a few.
Locally there are bastles, pele towers and castles to explore that all reveal the history of the area. There are numerous stately homes and gardens that open their doors to the public - Wallington, Belsay Hall and Cragside Country House. Otterburn is a central location for exploring Northumberland with World Heritage Site, Hadrian's Wall, only 20 miles away and Kielder Water and Forest Park only 20mins drive. The Scottish border is only 15 miles away with lovely market towns such as Kelso, Jedburgh and Melrose to discover.
Northumberland is still a relatively undiscovered County. While Summer brings tourists to the coast, inland it is still possible to hike for a day in the Cheviot hills and not bump into another soul!
Alnwick Castle and Gardens and the Northumberland Heritage Coast are just over 1hr drive away along scenic country roads. The drive alone is a must but a trip to the coast is worthwhile come rain or shine.
