Lou and Shaun were extremely hospitable and welcoming. We were given clear directions and advice. The accommodation surpassed expectations and we were very comfortable. The history of the place is fascinating and our hosts were happy to share information. Cragend Grange is in a beautiful location and we are keen to return soon. Highly recommended.

Angela - B&B

Exceptional historical farm accommodation with welcoming hosts. Beautifully restored farm in rural location just around the corner from Cragside. Lovely extra large bed in huge bedroom. Great fresh breakfast. Fantastic hosts, Lou and Shaun who really could not have done more to make us feel welcome. Just sorry we weren't able to stay longer!
