    It was clean, comfortable and very well equipped. The decor was very pleasing and the snacks very much appreciated. All in all it made our holiday perfect.

  • "Very comfortable and very well equipped."

    Spotlessly clean .Excellent Wi-Fi and television. Beautifully positioned in the centre of a pretty village with amenities close at hand . Lovely walks in the area and lots to do and see . The only gripe would be the lack of light coming into the property and no view . But we were out most of the day anyway making the most of the beautiful area. Very generous hosts leaving lots of “goodies” which were appreciated, thank you .

  • "This property is outstanding."

    It was spotlessly clean, very well kitted out and the owner's eye for detail and interior styling is very special. We had a very relaxing time in this property and there is so much to do in the area, the week flew by. We had one issue and it was resolved immediately. Highly recommend.

  • "We thought this was a really lovely property."

    Cosy and full of personal touches all over the house. We also appreciated all of the many extras that were left for us (wine, all the breakfast treats, all of the essentials left in the fridge etc.) Location was brilliant next to the historic church, 15 mins walk to the dunes and beach and 5 mins walk to the castle. Also very quiet while being so close to three really lovely pubs! Really enjoyed our stay..

  • "We were very impressed with the booking and communication from start to finish."

    The cottage was stunning, immaculate and there were so many little extra touches that were really wonderful. Christmas decorations were beautiful and the welcome hamper was really thoughtful. Everything was immaculately clean. The bike storage was a great bonus. There was absolutely nothing we would change or could suggest to improve. Thank you.

  • "This is one of the best cottages we've ever stayed in, and all the thoughtful little (and big!"

    ) touches really made it wonderful. Hugely appreciated all you did for us and we had a very good few days. Many thanks! The cottage is really lovely, and incredibly well stocked. We had not expected any breakfast so that was really a very kind gesture, especially as the shop wasn't open. Communication was excellent, and we'd definitely recommend this as a stay.

  • "We have stayed in a number of UK holiday cottages over the years, some good ,some less so however we would say that the olde stables in Warkworth was amongst the very best."

    The cottage is so well located in the village, everything being a 3 minute walk away. The village has pubs, cafes, restaurants and a few shops. The facilities are excellent, great well equipped kitchen, new television, internet connection, big walk in shower and two comfortable double bedrooms, each with a TV. The cottage has been converted and decorated/styled in the best way, it really is a home from home. The owners have put a great deal of thought into making it to such a good standard, the little touches when you arrive, bottle of wine, eggs, milk, orange, butter and bread in addition to a supply of breakfast cereals. They had also made the cottage feel Christmassy for us, a beautiful tree, subtle decorations and Christmas lights outside. Living close by they were around when we arrived, provided useful information about the locality and gave the impression they would be on hand if anything was required. Cottage is within a converted stable block, its close to a local hotel but is not troubled by noise or disturbance. Its a lovely place and one I believe we will return too. Probably the best cottage we have stayed in in the UK.

    The hosts took care to ensure that some basics - milk, bread, butter etc - were there when we arrived. We very much enjoyed visiting some of the key places of interest - notably Bamburgh castle and the fantastic beaches all along this coast - but also the lovely walks in the vicinity of where we stayed.

  • "A perfect holiday cottage in a wonderful area of the country."

    The interior design expertly makes use of the old stables building and is delightful. It is clean, very well-equipped and very comfortable. Quirky artwork generates a relaxing and homely environment. And the owners thoughtfully provide welcoming goodies such as wine, scones, artisan bread, milk, butter etc etc. We thoroughly recommend this cottage and hope to return sometime.

  • "The Olde Stables is a perfect home from home."

    The owners were extremely helpful when we had a couple of questions, and were easy to contact. They had provided lots of little extras which were very thoughtful, especially the bottle of wine and popcorn! The cottage itself is comfortable, stylish and spotlessly clean. Everything you could think of was provided and more. It was our first visit to Northumberland and we will definitely be returning - Warkworth is a great base. We ate at the Masons Arms and Bertram’s which were both great, especially considering the COVID-19 restrictions in place at the moment. Grays is a fabulous little shop, especially good for early Christmas shopping! We visited Alnwick and Bamburgh Castles and had the most wonderful trip to Holy Island. The Olde Stables and Warkworth gave us a perfect autumn break - thank you Russell and Tracey.

    They were so helpful. The Olde Stables is in a great location in the heart of Warkworth, everything you need on the doorstep. As the weather and the tide was kind to us, we walked the coast, clocking up 60 miles over the week. We have many favourite walks, the area is where we will retire to in 4 years time. We will return to this lovely home.

  • "I can highly recommend staying at this cottage, it is perfect for a relaxing break away!"

    A few days before we arrived we received some texts from the owners giving us some information and directions, which was very much appreciated. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine and packet of biscuits, which always goes down well, and a lovely note providing further information. The cottage is very cosy, decorated beautifully and well equipped. The village itself is lovely and people are so friendly. We can definitely recommend the Masons Arms for food and good company! The Fenwick Gallery is also a must to look round but be careful as you may spend a little too much as Nicole and Dorien’s artwork is exceptional! The beach was a 15 min walk away and was breathe taking. For those who love to read I can recommend Barters Books in Alnwick too! Edinburgh is an hours train ride from Alnmouth and didn’t cost a fortune either. Don’t be put off that their isn’t a parking space outside the cottage as there is a car park not even a mins walk from the cottage and we never had any issues getting a space. Thank you so much to Tracey and Russell (the owners) for letting us stay, we had an amazing week and we will definitely be coming back again soon.

  • "Great accommodation, immaculately clean with everything you needed for a self catering holiday."

    Not that we did much cooking with the good eating places within walking distance - with a surprising number of options for a small village. Would recommend the Masons Arms for good, and plentiful meals on an evening and the Cabosse during the day for the best hot chocolate you will ever have.. A walk back along the side of the river after a meal was very pleasant. An excellent bus service, which puts my local one to shame, means there are options for trips out without having to use the car. Would heartily recommend this property, which is excellent value for money. This was the first time we have holidayed in this area but will be returning, and will be booking this property again. Finally, a word about the helpful owners. We had a slight problem with the TV but after ringing them they were at the property within the hour, driving from their own home a few miles away and sorted it. Great service. All in all a wonderful week.

    This property is a little gem of a find in a pretty village. Everything was as described but it was even lovelier than the pictures show. The whole house had lots of little extras that really helped throughout the week. The TV having access to Netflix and Prime was excellent and helped to keep my little ones entertained before breakfast. The fan in the main bedroom was much appreciated during the hot weather we experienced. I just missed having a dishwasher (I know there isn’t one listed) but it would’ve been the cherry on the top if there’d been one. Thank you for the little welcome biscuits and wine and for the addition of the high chair.

Warkworth has its own stretch of sandy beach and a 9 hole pay and play golf course.
