With a well equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge, 4 televisions and 3 toilets what more could you want? A hot tub? Yes, it has that too (and it's well maintained).
If it was for sale and I could afford it I'd want to buy it!
We had an amazing weeks stay here.. The cottages are situated down a single lane track so it was very quiet and peaceful, perfect for being in the hot tub. The private garden was great for us with the dog, however the whole driveway and communal garden was also great as it was all secure meaning we could just let him out of the cottage knowing he wouldn't be able to escape! The cottage was extremely clean and tidy on arrival, with great facilities and fast internet which I was surprised by as this is usually a negative in remote cottages. Highly recommend for people wanting a relaxing break away! The only slight down side I can think of is it said it was close to a pub, however we struggled to find one without driving far to get to one. But that wasnt really an issue! Would definitely book again.
The house was beautiful and in a delightful setting.. Plenty of space for our family to enjoy the week away. We were lucky with the weather which meant lovey days out in Alnwick, Alnmouth and Seahouses to name a few. Would highly recommend this cottage to anyone.
We stayed here for three nights with two friends and enjoyed every minute of it. We were slightly worried when we saw it only had one review but when we arrived we couldn't have been more impressed. Everything looks modern and authentic with stone everywhere. The surroundings were amazing and there was barely anyone for miles around. The hot tub was a great touch and the kitchen was ideal. There was a great collection of DVD's and games to keep us entertained.
There are just a few minor things that we had issues with that I think if changed, could make this a perfect place to stay:
The heater in the shed near the hot tub barely changes the temperature of the room.
The bath doesn't have a curtain on it so the shower attachment can be difficult to use.
The bath is very deep so a handle could be useful.
The milk that was left for us was still in date but had curdled (this was only a very minor inconvenience as it was a nice thought to leave the milk)
These are all easy to cope with and the only big issue that we had was with the shower. It runs with the strength of a water pistol and violently switches between skin meltingly hot and freezing cold with no notice. This obviously effected our stay as showers were difficult so I think this is the only thing that needs immediate attention.
Overall a fantastic place to stay with one major and a few minor changes.
Just returned from a wonderful week at 1 Grange Cottages.. Such a comfortable, relaxing place to stay. Hot tub was fantastic, really great facilities for kids and our dog. Location was perfect for exploring the area. We'll be back!
My husband and I just got back from a long weekend away at Grange cottages.. What an amazing c
Absolutely fantastic cottage, great location to explore..
We booked the cottage for Christmas 2018 and when we arrived the cottage had been decorated appropriate for the festive period which was a nice touch.. The instructions for making the best of our stay were easy to follow. We were a party of 4 adults and our dog, Fudge, was with us and he was safe in the garden while we all used the hot tub. We loved our short break and would book it again and highly recommend the property.
Beautiful cottage, clean, cosy, comfortable.. Having stayed in many cottages / cabins / lodges this is the best by far. We would not hesitate to recommend this to family and friends.
What a fantastic cottage! ! Me & my partner loved it. We will definitely be back
This property more than exceeded our expectations.. We hardly went out all week, although there are so many beautiful places to go to in the area, simply because it was so cosy at the cottage. The jacuzzi was in an area separate from the house at the end of the drive-way in our own secluded garden with a table and benches as well as a summerhouse, all with a lovely view of fields and hills. My favourite spot for the entire week was a reading corner on the landing of the cottage which was flooded with natural light. The owners have filled a bookcase with all sorts of books and DVDs, all the tvs (in almost every room!) have Netflix and access to channels on the internet as well as normal TV channels. The bathrooms were decorated to the highest standard and the decor in all the rooms was tasteful, restful and pristine. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to anyone and will definitely be going back.
1 Grange Cottages absolutely exceeded our expectations.. The property was very clean, nicely spec’ed and was in a great location for a relaxing break away without being too far from amenities and attractions.
The owners clearly take pride in the property and there was not one thing we could fault about our stay. Highly recommended.
The cottage was amazing! Everything we could need was there. Beds were very comfortable and the hot tub out of this world. Every night we star gazed whilst in the hot tub.
Location was perfect for exploring the area. Visited Alnwick Castle and Bamburgh Castle.
Would go back again.
Also the owners left us a welcome basket of milk, prosseco and cake!!!
If you seek peace and relaxation in beautiful surroundings, this is for you.. You can't fail to be impressed by the design and high specification of the cottage. This is a property which the owners clearly love and you can understand why. Easy access to all Northumberland's jewels and dog friendly to boot. X
We stayed at 1 Grange Cottages for 3 nights and could not fault this gorgeous place.. Everything was just perfect, so clean and well equiped, and the hot tub was a real bonus.
The cottage is brilliantly restored and the attention to deal is excellent.. The hot tub and summer house are beautiful with a wonderful view to enjoy.
I would happily stay at this cottage again and hope I do
