    Use of the very large garden was an unexpected bonus but the very best thing was the owners, we immediately felt like we had known them years, so friendly and accommodating, can't speak highly enough of them. Would love to see them again. Kate and Sid Harvey

  • "We had a fantastic time at Stable Cottage."

    The host, Angus, was very helpful and full of local knowledge about places to visit and the best places to eat. Very clean and comfortable, with access to a large, lovely garden. Very quiet and peaceful. Would not hesitate to recommend. Plenty of lovely towns, villages and beaches to visit in the area, all not too far to drive.

  • "Stable Cottage really is a haven from home."

    We used it as a base from which to explore the local area and returning to the cottage in the evenings gave us a feeling of peace and serenity. It's pretty unique in that sense. The owner must take credit for the care and attention to detail that he has put into designing the cottage; it has everything you need on holiday plus so much more. There are so many nice things that could could be said about the owner too from being warm, friendly and welcoming through to helpful and considerate. Who could ask for more? We enjoyed a lovely and memorable stay, we will definitely go back and we highly recommend it.

  • "Stable cottage was superb."

    Ideally situated to explore the Northumberland coastal line. We suggest putting All Saints church, Duddo into google maps as Stable cottage is right next door to it and the postcode on the website takes you to a different place. Angus, the owner was very accommodating giving us lots of useful information, places to eat etc. He also supplied us with a lovely welcome pack of milk, eggs, cheese, wine and grapes. We made use of his beautiful garden to soak up the evening sun and listen to the birds singing. We took our bikes to explore the area which were stored safely in his shed. Thank you Angus this was all very much appreciated.

    Thanks so much folks it was lovely to meet you both. I'm so glad the sun shone for you and your fabulous bikes Property Owner

  • "Cottage is a beautifully converted stable block attached to the main house but fully self contained."

    An open plan living room, kitchen and dining area. Bedroom is on a mezzanine level accessed via a cast iron spiral staircase with the most impressive king size bed! Everything you need is provided by the most accommodating host my husband and I have ever met: nothing was a bother for Angus and he was able to provide good local information about places to visit and where to eat, and crucially, where not to! We would definitely return to Stable Cottage, we left feeling restored and relaxed and ready to face work again. Go, you won’t regret it!

    It was so lovely to meet you both. Thank you so very much for you kind feedback, it is very much appreciated. Hope you have a lovely spring and that we will see you at Stable cottage again Property Owner

    Very well equipped accommodation which was spotlessly clean. We were made to feel very welcome by Angus, our host. He added the little extras to get our holiday started e.g. cheese, wine, milk and bread already for us when we arrived. Angus offered lots of ideas for places to visit and things to see. Stable Cottage is a wonderful place to stay and Angus is an outstanding host. We shall definitely return!

    The property it’s self is beautiful inside and out the mezzanine and open plan living are delightful not to mention the stable door which you can open to allow the morning bird song in, in the morning (I enjoyed many morning coffees stood at the door listening) on top of this the location just adds to the already lovely experience.

  • "The cottage is gorgeous and a perfect little hideaway."

    In a beautiful area with loads on the doorstep and bike rides and local walks are gorgeous. Angus is great host, he has some fantastic locals only recommendations and tells a good story if you have time for chat. We had such a lovely week, the fire is great and really cosy and there isn't anything missing you might want... other than a record player and some good records (we took our own!) If its sunny, breakfast on the lawn is lovely and as the bathroom is so relaxing I dont think I have had that many baths in years! The bedroom does require a little bit of wrangling to get used to on the first night but after that is like sleeping in a tent with beams, cosy and hidden away and so much fun. I am pregnant and my husband is 6ft3 and neither of us struggled with the ceiling at all, just remember to bend! Thanks again to Angus for a such a lovely welcome
