Another lovely stay at The Granary, at Hamsteels Hall Farm. This is our 5th time at these lovely cottages. Ideally located for Beamish, Holy Island, Durham and the coast. Always such a warm welcome from June Whitfield.

A lovely stay in the Bull Pen. Everything you could need, very clean and tidy. Great location and quiet at night, so great nights sleep in a very comfy bed. A welcome bottle of wine left too. A nice touch. Would recommend if you want to explore the area.

Our cottage was clean, spacious and well equipped. Ideal location for visiting Durham and surrounding attractions. Our host June was very welcoming. The cottage is in a quiet location but close to 'park and ride'.
