  • "A wonderful stay in this beautiful cottage which is in a lovely village & driving distance to many places."

    We visited Bamburgh, Seahouses, Alnwick, Rothbury & Cragside. Everything in the cottage was spotlessly clean. Plenty of instructions & local information if you need it. Loved the little extra's ie bottle of wine and delicious eggs kindly left by the owner. Highly recommend Sunnyhills farm shop & cafe which is walking distance from the house, wonderful food.

    Clean and well looked after building. Not far to walk in to Belford either for the shop, a meal or a drink.

  • "The Stables accommodation at Belford were superb."

    The property was spotlessly clean and furnished to a high standard. We had a welcome bottle of prosecco in the fridge and some eggs from the owners chickens on the farm next door waiting for us. The shops in Belford are a short walk away and there is plenty to do and see in the area during the week. We enjoyed our stay at The Stables and would recommend the accommodation for anyone looking to stay in the area.

The property

Set in a wonderful position on the outskirts of the idyllic village of Belford, is this attractive converted cottage, The Stables.

Offering the very best of both the coast and countryside, this lovely single-storey dwelling is the perfect choice for one or two couples seeking a romantic retreat to Northumberland.

Open up the pretty green door and be welcomed into the cloakroom with plenty of room for your coats and shoes, then enter into a light and airy open-plan living space, home to a gorgeous cream kitchen hosting all the necessary appliances, and an inviting seating area from which to enjoy many peaceful evenings in front of the woodburning stove.

Admire the beautiful blue hues and striking exposed beams that decorate this stylish room, as you join at the dining table just a few steps away, and indulge in a delicious bottle of wine whilst mapping out all of your upcoming adventures.

Continue the festivities out on the patio as you watch the sun set on another marvellous day in the countryside, before heading back inside to the two restful bedrooms, one of which can be found benefitting from an en-suite cloakroom.

Completing the interior of the cottage is a stunning shower room, where you can freshen up with a rejuvenating rinse at the end of your days.

When ready to discover the hidden gems of Northumberland, be sure to explore St Cuthbert's Cave and Ros Castle, or head to the village of Bamburgh to see Bamburgh Castle, the RNLI Grace Darling Museum and admire views of the Farne Islands from Bamburgh Beach.

Take a boat out to Inner Farne Lighthouse and St Cuthbert's Chapel, or admire the incredible sea views as you enjoy a spot of golfing at the spectacular Bamburgh Castle Golf Club.

Lose yourself on an awe-inspiring trail along Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve, stopping off at Lindisfarne Priory, Lindisfarne Castle and the North Shore along the way.

See the 14th-century remains of Dunstanburgh Castle, now owned by the National Trust, or explore Alnwick Castle, best known as the backdrop to many scenes from the famous Harry Potter series.

Uncover the Belford Hidden History Museum and Twizel Castle, or spend your days hiking through the rugged terrains of Northumberland National Park.

Grab dinner and drinks in the town of Wooler, before returning to the welcoming embrace of your home-away-from-home.

Discover Northumberland like never before on an escape to The Stables.

About the location


Alnwick 15 miles; Berwick-upon-Tweed 15 miles; Bamburgh 5 miles.

The picturesque Northumberland village of Belford lies in the heart of Heritage countryside, midway between the popular walled towns of Alnwick and Berwick-upon-Tweed. The pretty coastal village of Bamburgh, with its sweeping beaches and dramatic castle, is only a short drive away. Belford itself is an old coaching village with a pleasant square and offers a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants. It is ideally placed for exploring the Northumbrian Coastal Route, Cheviots, the renowned Northumberland Coastline and the Scottish Borders. The opportunity to visit the bird sanctuary or seal colony on the famous Farne Islands with boat trips running daily from nearby Seahouses, is not to be missed. Alternatively check the tide times and cross to Holy Island to visit the historic Lindisfarne Priory.
