  • "Our stay was just lovely."

    The cottage was extremely well presented, comfortable and was spotless. We met the owners, when we couldn't turn the oven on and they arrived within minutes to sort us out! It was a really pleasant and restful break.

  • "Fantastic week spent at the The Olde Stables saw this property the year before whilst out walking coastal path looked tempting so booked,Really glad we did everything has been thought about lovely welcome pack on arrival."

    The beds and the whole cottage super comfortable 15 min walk and your on a stunning beach very convenient for days out to all local places.The kitchen was fully equipped if you like cooking even electric steamer and slow cooker left in property which we loved after a long days walking and exploring,been to Northumberland many times. Lots of books and information left in property for those wetter days nights plenty of games to keep you amused.lovely hot powerful shower in main bath room couldn’t fault anything my only concern before we went was no on site parking but the maket place is only a stones throw away plenty of nice size spaces for larger vehicles and we always managed to get a space on our evening return failing that plenty of nearby street parking obviously on a first come first served but don’t let the parking put you off.Would highly recommend some nice local eateries in village but everyone has a different opinion on whats good and not so good when eating out.All in all a well kept and maintained property keep up the good work nice to find such a lovely holiday accommodation and we’ve stayed in many over the years.Will definitely return much more exploring to do in Northumberland.

    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.

  • "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.

    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.

    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.

The property

The Olde Stables rests peacefully in the curve of the River Coquet, adjacent to St. Lawrence's Church in the historic village of Warkworth, Northumberland.

Offering bags of character, this beautiful cottage has been thoughtfully restored to provide homely accommodation for families and friends alike, with wooden-clad walls, low pendant lighting, solid oak doors and quirky features throughout, giving it a sense of style and charm.

Enter straight into the spacious open-plan living room, where you can relax on the sofas with a good book and a drink or switch on the TV to catch up on your favourite shows before preparing a homemade meal for everyone and getting together around the dining table.

The kitchen is wonderfully appointed for all your culinary needs, however there is also a pub/restaurant next door, should you fancy a night off from the cooking.

Climb the carpeted stairs to the first floor, where you can cool off from a long walk in the family shower room, which boasts a double walk-in shower cubicle and a quality finish.

Make the most of the small library on the landing and choose something gripping to read before bed, then head up another set of stairs to find two well-appointed double rooms, one boasting an en-suite cloakroom.

If you can tear yourself away from this delightful retreat, enjoy a lovely stroll around the village and find a plethora of shops, pubs and eateries, along with the imposing Warkworth Castle towering over it all.

Enjoy a walk along the river and uncover the Warkworth Hermitage medieval cave, set within a cliff-face on the north bank near to the castle, a must-see during your visit.

Journey up to Alnmouth and explore its sand dune grassland backing onto the bay, the perfect place for a family day out, walking, wildlife spotting and enjoying picnics.

The whole of the coastline awaits an there are many other attractions including Hadrian's Wall and Holy Island, giving you that much-needed break in a fascinating part of the country.
