Approximately eight miles to the west of the historic City of Durham itself is the lovely village of Lanchester. Set in the beautiful countryside of County Durham, this village took its name from the Roman fort of Longovicium, situated half a mile to the south-west. Today, archaeologists are still drawn to this charming settlement because of the Roman connection with the fort and the neighbouring villages, situated on the old 'Roman Dere Street. The Norman church was - along with a number of the surrounding farms - built using stones from the original Longovicium fort. The village now offers a good range of shops, pubs and restaurants and the surrounding countryside is full of excellent walks, as well as historic attractions. Just 20 miles away is the city of Newcastle, which provides the usual cosmopolitan entertainment's, whilst for those in search of sun and sand will enjoy the beaches and castles of the North Sea Coastline.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

Mrs Beck
September 2020
Beautiful cottage in lovely setting, very peaceful and idyllic for us.. Property was immaculate and everything we could possibly need for our comfort. We look forward to returning next year. It was the perfect escape after all the lockdown.
Mrs Beck, September 2020

Lovely peaceful location.. A home from home.
Miss Gilks, July 2020
February 2020
The location is even better than the photo suggests and a very warm welcome from the owners..
Mr Heeley, December 2019
December 2019
Cottage was perfect, welcoming, great location for amenities & site seeing.. We love the area. So much to do. Two fab days at Beamish. Everything we could need in the cottage, which was clean and welcoming. Our dog was welcomed and felt right at home too. Highly recommend. We can’t wait to come back :-)
Mr Coles, December 2019
December 2019
Staying at the Granary was a really a pleasant and relaxing holiday, the views were fantastic we found the little village of lanchester within easy reach by car with plenty to offer in the way of shops, pubs and Restaurants being The Revelio on the front and the local pub The Kings Head.. The Owner of the Granary Chrissie and Gareth were were really friendly and very helpful definitely Home from Home,The winter views I love but it must fantastic in the Summer,A visit to Durham and its market is definitely worth a visit
Mr Richards, February 2020
December 2019
This cottage was exceptional a lot of attention was paid to little things which added to the overall cosy feel.. We would highly recommend. Not only was the accommodation excellent but the position was outstanding. The owner who met us was very friendly.
Mr Aitken, November 2019
November 2019
The cottage was very comfortable and clean.. It had the facilities we required and the views from every window were fabulous. We were close enough to Lanchester and Durham to enjoy everything they had to offer whilst remote enough to enjoy open countryside. The owners were very friendly and hospitable. Lovely cottage, highly recommended.
Mrs Coker, December 2019

Lovely cottage in a stunning location
Mrs Turner
March 2019
The pictures on the website DO NOT give the true picture about the cottage.. I had reservations when I booked it but as soon as you walk in, it was instantly homely and comfortable. There are lovely rural views across fields from EVERY room. The pictures were very minimalist and more internal views would be helpful.The owner was lovely and very helpful.The only negative comment is the driveway is very potholed, some TLC needed.I find that there is usually insufficient info on fridge and freezer capacity on most cottage websites. A picture of them would be helpful and also of the shower cubicle. This cottage has an awesome, large cubicle.We had a great time at this cottage and were very sad to leave, would stay again
Mrs Boswell
February 2019
The peace and quiet, no traffic noise , very little light pollution, very friendly helpful owners ….. a lovely peaceful stay
Mr Curtis
October 2018
The directions to the cottage were easy to follow and we were met with a warm welcome.. The cottage was everything we expected - warm. cosy, comfortable, properly equipped, clean and roomy. It was within reach of all we wanted to do ie visit Durham, Gateshead, Beamish and allowed us the relaxing time we needed. Next time we visit the area we will be checking availability of the cottage first
Ms Gimple
September 2018
This is a beautiful cottage - extremely well furnished and equipped situated in jaw droppingly gorgeous countryside.. The owners are very friendly but kept out of the way. Only very slight negatives are that you must have a car as nothing in walking distance and also, although stated as dog friendly, the owner's sheep are in fields all around the property and come right up to fence line with just stockproof mesh between the garden and them! My dog would have easily have got through!
Mr Bartlett
September 2018
Really enjoyed our holiday at the granary peaceful lovely views and the owners are friendly and never bothered us.. Good location plenty of places to visit. we will b going back again at some point.
Mrs Rudd
August 2018
Mr and Mrs Clark made us very welcome.. The location is really peaceful and currently surrounded by sheep. The cottage is well set up and has everything you need.
Mrs Dockeray
February 2018
We were made most welcome & the hosts were very friendly & informative.. We would most certainly consider rebooking in the future..
Mrs Boswell
November 2017
This was an area we had not visited before and we enjoyed it more than we expected, nothing we wanted to see was close by but we did manage to visit 2 places we had always wanted to see.. ..Lindisfarne and Beamish Museum ... expected to spend a day there, but went back on 3 days...wonderful place. Friendly people at the cottage, left us to our own devices which is very nice if staying attached to the owners.Would definitely go back
Mr Dann

Mr Slote
June 2017
The location and hosts were superb.. The facilities were excellent. We loved the area, and it was a great stepping off point for so many places. We must go again to do some of the things we didn't have time for this time around.
Mr Connolly
April 2017
Fantastic location and the owners couldn't have been more helpful.. One of the best holidays we've had, in terms of the accommodation. Nothing but praise. Wonderful.
Mr Rhymaun
July 2016
The comfort, cleanliness and location of the property is outstanding. The views from every window are breath-taking. The walk-in modern power-shower was much appreciated by all of us, especially the three teenage grand-daughters! The cottage is a pleasure to return to after a day out. We would not hesitate to re-book another holiday here as it is truly one of the best properties we have ever stayed in.
Mrs Mather
June 2016
The cottage was well equipped and comfortable. We loved the beautiful countryside setting it was so relaxing to sit in the garden and enjoy the panoramic views and listen to the sound of bird song.
Mrs Preedy
June 2016
We liked the very friendly and helpful owners. We also liked the quiet and peaceful location and very comfortable cottage.
Mr Edmondson
April 2016
I feel the three star rating of the property is misleading as we have stayed in a number of 4 star rated properties that are not as good as this! The property is excellent and the owners warm and welcoming. The views from the gardens and the conservatory are wonderful. The cottage is an ideal base for visiting a beautiful and interesting area of our country.
Mrs Ellershaw
March 2016
This is a beautiful cottage and should be rated as 4 star not 3 star. We had a lovely and comfortable holiday. The views from the cottage were fantastic. My two little dogs made themselves at home as soon as we got into the cottage. The fenced off garden was brilliant. The owners could not have been any more friendly and helpful.
Rev Wade
November 2015
Lovely cottage in superb location with helpful owners.
September 2015
The cottage was better than 5 star and the owners where very helpful with the area. We could not expect more of the accommodation and the access to things to do in the Durham area.
Mrs Mather
September 2015
We loved the wonderful country views from the cottage and garden. The cottage was well equipped and cosy providing a relaxing break for all the family.
Mrs Cross
August 2015

Ms Williams
August 2015
After having spent several years visiting the UK and staying in many cottages, The Granary is up there with the best of them. The owners were great hosts, the cottage was faultless, and the area and views were wonderful. We felt very privileged to have stayed there.
Mr Eggleton
July 2015
The cottage was really lovely with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. It was extremely comfortable inside with plenty of space for the four of us. This is a great place to stay.
Mr Fothergill

Friendly and helpful owners. The cottage is in a nice location with a good feel to the property. I felt relaxed and at home there from the start.
Mrs Preedy
June 2015
Wonderful accommodation. The location was so peaceful and had beautiful views. The owners were so friendly and helpful, which went a long way to making this a great holiday. We will definitely return.
Mr Marshall
April 2015
The Granary is comfortable and well-equipped for four to five people. The owners are courteous and helpful. The house is in a quiet and tranquil setting with pleasant views of the surrounding hills, but we were surprised at the number of interesting places we could visit within a short drive.
Mrs Arckless
November 2014
The cottage was beautiful, the owners friendly, helpful but not intrusive. The log fire was particularly appreciated to add to the cosiness on a November evening. The bed was very comfortable, all in all a real home from home. We will definitely be back and we are already recommending the cottage to friends and family.
Mrs Hulme
November 2014
Warm cosy, welcoming, friendly and generally an excellent standard. This has been our our second visit and will not be our last.
Rev Reid
October 2014
It is such a peaceful place. It is well appointed, and the owners are thoughtful and make you so very welcome, yet they are never intrusive.
Ms Nowak
October 2014

Mrs Cross

Spending time in a quiet, beautiful area but within a short driving distance of towns/cities/museums where there was plenty to keep people of whatever age happy and busy.
Rev Saxby
March 2014
The owners were very welcoming and helpful. The cottage was roomy, well appointed and comfortable. The location was ideal for us set in open country with wonderful views.
Mrs Castle
November 2013
Beautiful views. Friendly helpful owners. The fire was laid when we got there. Warm and cosy property. Lovely walks. Perfect - we would love to go back.
Diane D
August 2013
The cottage was blissfully comfortable, quiet, relaxing and spotlessly clean. The cottage was stocked with everything we could need for a family of 3 for a week, including washing machine, dishwasher, wi-fi and crockery. The owners live in the cottage next door but are in no way intrusive - they are very friendly and welcoming and are on-tap if anything is needed. It is also a great location - very quiet with fantastic views but with easy access of many family friendly activites. This week we have; visited Beamish Museum (twice), Gibside (National Trust property and gardens), Durham, Newcastle, Druridge Bay (beautiful, clean, quiet beach) and had a boat ride on the Tyne. We have had a wonderful week and will definitely stay at Granary Cottage again. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Mr Perera
July 2013
The cottage was spacious, well maintained, very comfortable and in a beautiful location.
July 2013

Mr Bowman
October 2012
The cottage, the owners and the lovely views. Everything in general.
October 2012
By far the best equipped place we have ever stayed. Very friendly owners who will help and advise you if you need it. A great base to explore Couny Durham or further if you choose. My family highly recommends a visit to Beamish Museum and a trip up to Bamburgh castle.
Mr Clint
September 2012
The hosts and the cottage were 1st Class, could not ask for anything better in an area with lovely views.

Mrs Budge

Lovely situation and views, very peaceful and the owners were friendly but unobtrusive. Our dog was made welcome and walking was available. The local village met all our needs for shopping, eating out etc. Altogether a very enjoyable week - we hope to return.
Mrs Hall
September 2012
Out in the wilds, this is a beautiful cottage in a peaceful situation, with very helpful and charming owners. The cottage is fully equipped with everything you could want, in fact a home from home.
September 2012
We were most impressed with the style and quality of this cottage. It had everything we needed with a large kitchen/diner and beautiful lounge. Lots of leaflets with local attractions and some good reading material The coutryside location was perfect for us with our dog. Lanchester provided a good location for walks with the dog and had all the shops we needed. I would reccommend its use at any time of year.
Mr Melville

Mrs Fishpool
February 2012
A very cosy and welcoming cottage, in beautiful scenery. The owners were friendly and welcoming, but unobtrusive. The cottage was near to interesting and attractive places and also near enough to shops. We chose the property as it was close enough to Newcastle to spend some time with our oldest son who is at university there.
Mr Ayaz
February 2012
Really friendly owners. A very nice property, well maintained and it had everything we could ever need for a comfortable stay. We really enjoyed our stay there. Would highly recommend this property to anyone.

Mrs Gadsby
November 2010
Lovely cosy cottage, isolated but not remote, beautiful log fire, well situated for visiting Hadrian's Wall, Tees Valley, Newcastle and Durham City. Fantastic views from almost every room. Very friendly owner living next door.
November 2010
A lovely clean and homily cottage in a lovely quiet location, with great views. Well equipped with a log fire. Little touches like having logs and rolled up paper available for the fire made all the difference. Would recommend and will probably be back ourselves one day.
November 2010
a lovely week of mixed warm and cold front weather offering atmospheric views. Our daughter ran the Great North Half Marathon and raised several thousand pounds for the National Society for autism, she's a Specialist Nurse. Hurray !
November 2010
It was a joy to get 'home' to this beautiful cottage and its surroundings after long days out and about. Breakfast in the conservatory was a pleasure watching the birds and horses; but the evenings relaxing were the best. Myself and two friends had promised ourselves trips up to the local, or out for a meal each night, but the cottage was so cosy and comfortable, we didn't want to move - so just made our own meals in the fantastic kitchen - which had everything, and spent enjoyable evenings in the delightful sitting room watching TV, reading, writing or talking. So much thought has gone into the comfort of the visitors, that we couldn't fault a thing. Even hot water bottles in the superb large bedrooms and plenty of books for the adults and games for the children. As for the delightful owners - what can we say ? Thank you for the greeting on arrival, the bowl of fresh eggs in the kitchen. Your kindness and help throughout the week. We'll be back. Thats for sure !!
Mr Noble
October 2010
It was excellent value and a very comfortable cottage. We were handy for Diggerland and Beamish which my grandson (OK we all) enjoyed. A particular asset was the owners horse and pony in the field and chickens in the yard. We were also allowed to take our dog with us. It exceeded our expectations.
Mr Heath
October 2010
We were made to feel very welcome, but at the same time the owners were not a bit intrusive whilst being there if needed. The cottage is very comfortable and well appointed. Nothing was missing and even the TV had a larger screen than usual with full freeview. The location is quiet without being isolated and there are many places to visit at all points of the compass. It is ideal for visiting Durham which we needed for our son's graduation day. Chrissie and Gavin have succeeded in making this a real home from home and we really look forward to coming again.
Mrs Lobban
September 2010
Coming 'home' to The Granary after a long day out... It was so comfortable and cosy - all three ladies were so sorry to leave it to come back home. Our hosts were the nicest, kindest couple. Even a welcome dish of fresh eggs awaited us. I could go on, but there is no other word other than fabulous. Even this is not sufficient. Not sure of the Tourist Board Star Grade, but it deserves the highest, plus distinction.
Mr Thistleton
September 2010
A lovely clean, warm and comfortable cottage which made it easy to relax in. Very friendly and helpful owners but not intrusive. Peaceful and beautiful setting with lots of attractions in the surrounding area to visit.
Ms Beaton

Mr Heath

Excellent location for Durham/Northumberland. A very comfortable cottage with very welcoming and caring owners.
July 2010
A very well appointed house both comfortable and welcoming as were the owners. We hope to return and will recommend to family and friends wholeheartedly. Area has many different activities and interests available and so should suit everyone at any age.Horses, ponies & chickens endearing!
Mr Howes
May 2010
Good base for so many attractions of all types. Warm welcome. Beautiful views.
Mr James
March 2010
A fairly remote cottage at altitude with very friendly landlords.
Mr Bloomfield
January 2010
The friendliness of the hosts, the wonderful position of the cottage, the wonderful open fire and abundance of fuel for it. It was perfect. I just wish that I didn't want to praise this cottage and couple so highly as it may make it more difficult to book this cottage next time!!
January 2010
Very warm welcome from the adjacent owner, but not intrusive. Lovely house, very well equipped and clean. Large kitchen with dining area. Fantastic open fire with a constant, plentiful supply of logs. Could have spent the week indoors doing jigsaws and playing games, but there was lots to explore in the area. Lanchester had sufficient shops for us, plus a good Italian restaurant. Durham within easy reach. Well positioned for exploring Northumberland - Hadrian's wall, Killhope Lead mines & Souter lighthouse were all excellent. Would definitely stay again. Only drawback (minr) was the need to drive everywhere.
December 2009
A very comfortable cottage in a lovely setting. Friendly and very helpful owners. Close to Durham and Beamish, which provide wonderful days out. Hope to return.
December 2009
exellent hosts, could'nt do enough for you, property very clean and comfortable, perfect for relaxing, ideal location for days out,, village of lanchester couple of miles away, enough shops and pubs, would go back again anytime
December 2009
We have stayed in this cottage three times while our son was at Durham University. It provides a peaceful base and in winter the log fire makes it a cosy retreat. There are lovely views from the triple aspect sitting room. The owners are very kind and helpful. The cottage is nicely furnished and the beds are comfortable. There is ample linen and towels. The only downside is that there is only one WC which is in the bathroom and there is no dishwasher. The surrounding countryside is lovely and quite undiscovered and there is much to see and do - the cities of Durham and Newcastle, roman sites, castles, industrial heritage, walks and the coast.
Mrs Webster
October 2009
This is a lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Cosy, well equipped and very comfortable. The owners were the perfect hosts. There are plenty of things to do in the area and the weather was very good.

Mrs King

Mr Rowley

Rev Barham
February 2007
Our fourth time there (daughter at University just down the road). Same lovely welcome. Very nice warm cottage - and plenty of logs to burn as well. Vindolanda on Hadrian's Wall is stunning even in February.
Mr Voy
January 2007
Excellent location and one of the best cottages so far. Nicest hosts yet. Cosy and comfortable with added homely touches - this cottage made our Christmas special!

Mr Mrs Williamson

We loved the peace and tranquility of The Granary, a complete world away from normal hectic life. The children loved the owners' animals and all the things to do in the area. Our thanks to the owners for making us so welcome and looking after us during our stay. We hope to go back next year, this time for 2 weeks!
Mr Mrs Lilburn
January 2006
The hosts were welcoming and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The cottage was a true home from home. The hosts went to the effort of putting up a Christmas tree and decorations to ensure that our Christmas in England was a warm and homely one. I could quite easily live there full time! Full marks to a cottage (and hosts) that I would happily recommend to anyone.
Mr Farrell
January 2006
A very nice cottage with very friendly owners situated next door. We always had plenty of firewood, that the owner chopped for us. A good situation, very quiet and peaceful with the village only a two-minute drive. Highly recommended to anyone who is thinking about staying there.
Mrs Hancock
November 2005
...great views from every window. The owners were excellent hosts. Everything we needed was there.
Rev Barham

Nice welcome. More than enough logs for the fire. Excellent setting. Huge amount to do nearby, especially recommend Killhope Lead Mining museum - even two teenagers had a great day there.
Mr Pasola
August 2005
A lovely cottage in beautiful surronding with very friendly and helpful owners. The home grown eggs were particularly welcome and lovely.
Miss Rodgers
August 2005
Nice quiet location with enclosed garden. Plenty of things to do in the area.
Mr Griffiths
February 2005
An immensely kind and thoughtful welcome. The hosts are always very helpful. This was in the middle of a cold February and a log fire had been laid and the cottage was already warm when we arrived. The cottage is very well stocked with all the necessities for a comfotable and happy stay and, while retaining a traditonal feel, is up to date with all its equipment and decor. There are lovely views from most windows and a very nice conservatory(with heating!). The property is quiet and secluded yet within an easy drive of good pubs and many local attractions. There is plenty of literature available if you don't know the area.
Mrs Yardley
January 2005
The cottage was exceptionally warm and comfortable. We had a lovely relaxing time. The owner made us very welcome.
Mr Mann
January 2005
Wonderful welcome - the cottage decorated for Xmas. Food laid on for breakfast after our planned (very) late arrival. Excellent situation with undroken country views.
Mr Griggs
December 2004
There are plenty of walks with our dog around the area without going too far out. The Brown Horse pub let us take our dog into the bar for food, but the Punch Bowl @Satley will not let dogs in. Plenty of space for us and our son and daughter in law along with their 10 year old son.

Young children catered for at the cottage. The cottage is an excellent retreat from a hectic life but also a wonderful base to explore from.

The view from the conservatory was amazing, you could sit for hours just looking down the valley and we had excellent weather which made it even better. The owners who live next to the cottage were very friendly and helpful.

The cottage really was lovely and cosy, with a very friendly cat! It made an excellent base for exploring the local area, and the owners were very friendly.

We liked it so much our parents booked up to go on our recommendation. A place for total chill out. Great for kids too, as plenty of space, outside area and entertainment from the hens, ponies and cats.
