  • "Nicely situated very pleasant area hopefully would like to return in the near future easy to get around thanks"

  • "The lack of windows on the lounge area and bedroom made THE OLD STABLES very warm and stuffy during hotter days."

    The property was clean and had everything we needed.we only stayed for 7 nights, if we had been staying longer somewhere to hang washing would have been handy. We had a washing machine but no clothes line to dry them.Parking near the property was difficult some days as no reserved parking. On 3 of our 7 nights we had to park way out of sight and walk back.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have had an unusually hot summer for the North east and we are sorry you were overly warm. We will look at putting a fan in for the summer months, usually the high ceilings are enough. We do have an agreement with our neighbours opposite to park there and there have been no issues with this arrangement before. Thank you again for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "We did not realise when we made the booking that there was no garden, though bearing in mind the prevailing high wind I doubt if we would have used it apart from letting the dog out last thing at night."

    It is the lack of a garden that reduces our opinion of the facilities. In other respects the cottage was excellent.

  • "Very nice well outfitted cottage, in a really nice quiet village just off A1 everything you need for your stay was supplied."

    we had a really relaxing stay and will recommend this cottage, only downside is it is behand a pub, great for a quick walk for a drink but was quite noisy when deliveries arrived usually first thing in morning.

With stylish interiors and a romantic setting, this cosy abode provides the perfect retreat for couples and their four-legged friend looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Enter into the bright and airy open-plan living space and be greeted by a glossy kitchen, intimate dining space and seating area, perfect for snuggling up at the end of an action-packed day and unwinding with a movie.

Grab your bags and make your way over to the attractive bedroom decorated with neutral tones and lovely oak wood furniture, where you can hang your belongings neatly in the storage provided.

Rustle up a light lunch in the kitchen to delight in at the dining table as you discuss your plans for the evening ahead.

Wander in to the chic shower room for a refreshing wash before getting ready for a night of wining and dining down at the local pub.

Discover Belford's hidden museum and explore the natural sandstone St Cuthbert's Caves, before jumping in the car and travelling to Bamburgh where you can stroll along the sandy beach and view the magnificent Bamburgh Castle, as well as taking a trip to the Farne Islands to meet the colony of seals who call the island home and learn of the famous Grace Darling, daughter of the Longstone Lighthouse keeper.

If you are a big fan of the Harry Potter series, stop by Anlwick Castle and saunter through the grounds of this Norman Castle that was used to film many iconic scenes used in the movie.

For a peaceful break with your significant other, book The Old Stables.
