Previous visitors' comments about Stable Cottage:
The locality of the property was ideal for us as we had come to do some painting, so even on the days we could not go out the lounge was ideal for painting, as we had come prepared with photographs. Also when the weather perked up we were well situated to go out and explore all the wonderful castles and beaches.

The location of the cottage made it easy to go to different locations quickly. The cottage was excellent and the photos on the website don't do it justice.

I particularly liked the comfort of the cottage - I enjoyed each time we returned from discovering the surroundings. I also enjoyed the owners' imagination and the personal and playful touch they have given their cottage. It is a lovely place to be.

A great base to explore Northumberland. The cottage was very well equipped, spotlessly clean and very cosy. A great place to relax.
