What Propology love about The Granary and East Thirston:

There is a wonderful flow in this home and the contemporary finishes add to the luxurious feel. We love the new stunning bespoke kitchen and open-plan living room and dining area, which offset the property’s grandeur with a homely, characterful edge; and we love the spa-style bathrooms too! We really like the fact that the property has a carefully considered mix of materials too, which includes everything from classic sandstone, stone slate roof tiles, solid oak, stone flooring and timber beams and trusses. The beautifully landscaped garden is somewhere we would love to sit out in whilst enjoying the picturesque views, and with the westerly aspect you’ll be able to admire the sunsets in peace and quiet with just the sounds of the evening wildlife in the distance. This is a property to make your home and create lifelong memories with family and friends.

The location of The Granary puts a huge tick in the location box being less than 2 miles away from Felton where you can pop to The Running Fox to get your morning loaf of bread or sample one of the best afternoon teas you will ever have! You’ve got the benefit of being close to The Northumberland Arms as well which is renowned for its delicious pub food but with a flare. If your taste is for real ale in a friendly environment there is the Fox’s Den micro pub which provides a range of local ales and Gallery 45 with its workshops for local artisans, gifts and regular exhibitions from local artists. Felton also has a post office, village first school, a doctor’s surgery, Village Hall with a well-equipped gym and a historic church. Only 11 miles from the market towns of Alnwick and Morpeth respectively, where you will find a large variety of shops, transport and amenities.

You are able to access the A1 easily (1.8 miles away) from The Granary, which makes it incredibly useful for commuting to Newcastle, and the iconic heritage coastline with its wide variety of unspoilt beaches is close by.
