Stable Cottage Family Cottage description

Holiday home
All the accommodation is laid out over a single level and the living area has been designed in an open-plan style. It retains a lot of its original charm through features such as open roof trusses and a wood-burning stove. In addition to the stove there are convection heaters and night storage-heaters to ensure that you can get the best of what the region has to offer at any time of year. For hazy, summer evenings the rear garden has barbeque facilities.

Belford is an ancient village, having been in existence since before medieval times. The centre of the village is the market square with its cross dating back around 300 years. Today it is a quiet village which gives visitors easy access to the Northumberland Coast, the Cheviot Hills and the Scottish Borders. Belford itself has a variety of smaller interesting shops as well as the usual shops and facilities available in a large village. During the month of August, a continental market takes place in the centre of the village and gives it a real carnival atmosphere. Overlooked by the magnificent 18th century Belford Hall and only a few minutes walk from the centre of the village is Belford Golf Club, a 9-hole golf course which features a driving range, motorised cart hire and excellent bar facilities.

Northumberland is a heady combination of fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and historic Hadrian's Wall, tied together by beautiful countryside and abundant wildlife.

Lovely cottage, clean, comfortable, everything was there we needed, apart from an iron.. Very quite as well. The owners were lovely, very friendly. The location was great, lots of places to see, not far from the Scottish borders.
Mrs Butterworth

The cottage was spotless and everything was to hand.. The owners had took a lot of trouble to make the stay wonderful. It was ideally situated for touring about. We would certainly go back and recommend it to others.

The photos of the cottage really don’t do it justice - it was just lovely! And such a beautiful part of the UK. After a hard day’s exploring it was fantastic to come back to Stable Cottage to recharge our batteries.

A wonderful cottage

Just returned from a lovely holiday at Stable Cottage.. The photos of the cottage do not do the property justice. It is a lovely cottage, in a beautifully peaceful location. The garden is wonderful. Within easy driving distance to Alnwick, Seahouses, Bamburgh, Spittal - beautiful beach and Berwick upon Tweed. There is also a lovely beach at Scremerston.

The images listed for Stable Cottage do not give the house and garden justice - in reality the property is amazing; the furnishings are quaint and cottage like and of superior quality.. The location is superb; nice and quiet like we like it and within easy driving reach of the coastal and inland sights. The property is packed with books, CDs, DVDs, games etc. There was even a badminton set to use in the garden; and although in our 50s we have come home and decided to take up badminton as it was such a buzz! We were welcomed with fresh flowers and biscuits and even some tea bags to get us started. The internet was magic and worked better than at home. We had a great time and will definately return.

The cottage is ideally situated for exploration in Northumberland.. A great secluded, private, quiet garden. Which our 2 year old boy loved, along with the toy tractor. I would recommend this cottage to anyone. Thanks to Saul and Emma for a fantastic family holiday!

Excellent cottage in good location.. Comfortable and well fitted out. Wish we could have stayed longer but that our problem, not Sykes or the owners.
Mr Young

Stable cottage is very well situated for touring the Northumberland coast. It is in Belford which is an interesting village. The layout is very good, and the beds and bathroom were good. It is clean, quiet at night and the wildlife and farm animals etc were interesting. I do feel though that it needs some TLC. The DVD was used during bad weather, and proved to be difficult to use even with following the instructions as it didn't work the way it should have done. We are used to DVD players which made this one frustrating to operate. We didn't like the mix of drinking mugs. Some of the crockery is chipped and needs throwing away. Likewise with some cooking items. The toilet seat needs replacing with a white one. These points are small and easily fixed to make the cottage great again. Overall, the cottage was slightly disappointing, but it is well located and we enjoyed our holiday.

The positive bits! * The cottage was well described, cosy and a home-from-home, which is what I wanted. * A good location for exploring that part of Northumberland. * Represented good value for money for the time of year. * I would stay there again. Aspects to consider improving upon: * Generally the cottage was in good condition, albeit the small sofa appeared quite old and was not as comfortable as I would have liked. * The kitchen was well equipment and of a good standard in general. Some of the cooking pots and pans were worn and showing their age. * When removing the bedding on the final morning before leaving, it was only then that I noticed that the pillows were quite badly stained underneath the pillow case and did look poor. Pillows should perhaps be changed more regularly. These are suggested aspects to improve the cottage and irrespective of the above, I would book the cottage again. It was a good holiday. Ian Dolman

The cottage was welcoming and warm. It was a good location for touring the coast and inland attractions. It was quiet and you could have easily stayed around the cottage relaxing. It was nice to come back to and was always warm and homely.
Mrs Greenwood
April 2016
This is the third time I have been here and I enjoyed it just as much as before. The cottage is nice and warm inside and we loved watching the hedgehog that visited the garden at night.
Mr Gibson
April 2016
The property was very clean, neat and tidy. The owners have obviously given a lot of thought to the 'little things' which reflects their consideration for guest's comfort and convenience. The wood burning stove was brilliant! One of the best properties we've ever stayed in.
Mr Dunn
October 2015
A very comfortable and relaxing cottage to spend a week of walking the Northumberland coast and inland footpaths. We will return!

Mr Bradberry
April 2015
The accommodation was excellent - inviting, warm and homely. There were lots of interesting places to visit in the local area together with wonderful scenery. Holy Island with views of basking grey seals on the sand banks was particularly memorable.
Mr Thomas

This cottage was everything you could possibly want, everything was excellent. A really lovely peaceful place to spend some time away.
Mrs Ruttle

Liked the cleanliness of the cottage and it was very cosy. A good place to spend New Year's Eve. It feels really safe for the children too.
Mrs Cook
October 2014
Peace and quiet. The cottage and surrounding area was away from it all yet amenities were only a short drive away, beaches, good places to eat. Northumberland is such an unspoilt county.
Mr Henshaw
September 2014
The accommodation was excellent and the owner was very friendly caring. The location was excellent for exploring the Northumberland towns and countryside. Everything was perfect to the last detail, we will consider going again.

Well equipped comfortable cottage with a nice sunny patio. Easy access for all of Northumberland and the borders. Owners kindly and quickly forwarded some items we carelessly left behind.
Mrs Smith
April 2014
We Liked the location, the quietness of the property, safety of the enclosed garden and the fact it was all on one level. Oh, and the sheep. Lovely place and we would definitely come back.
Ms Hutchison
February 2014
The property was very well placed as a base. It was good to have a warm place to stay. The wood burning stove was a plus. It was also good to have such a comfortable place to relax.
October 2013
Very well prepared cottage, lovely character. Nice garden. Very good location for Northumberland coast without the expense of staying closer to Bamburgh (still only a 10 min drive from the beaches though). A shame that there is not more in Belford itself, although the pubs and hotels are Reasonable - just a little lacking in character I suppose.
Mrs Marshall
August 2013
Stable Cottage is a beautiful little cottage very well placed near the A1 for getting about the area, and within walking distance of Belford for supplies and amenities. The cottage had a lovely patio and garden which we made use of. The main room was a cosy and comfortable haven after a hard day out enjoying ourselves. There was nothing we did not like, we had a great week staying in a lovely cottage.
Mr Hulbert
May 2013
A lovely, quiet property with lovely owners who were there if you needed them but otherwise left you alone.
Mrs Rich
October 2012
The locality of the property was ideal for us as we had come to do some painting, so even on the days we could not go out the lounge was ideal for painting, as we had come prepared with photographs. Also when the weather perked up we were well situated to go out and explore all the wonderful castles and beaches.
Mr Hunneybell
September 2012
The location of the cottage made it easy to go to different locations quickly. The cottage was excellent and the photos on the website don't do it justice.
Mrs De Maeschalck
July 2012
I particularly liked the comfort of the cottage - I enjoyed each time we returned from discovering the surroundings. I also enjoyed the owners' imagination and the personal and playful touch they have given their cottage. It is a lovely place to be.
May 2012
Great base for exploring Northumbria. Cottage is really cosy, spotlessly clean and very well equipped.

Mrs Walmsley

Good homely cosy cottage, ideally located for all the Northumberland attractions.
Mr Rashbrook
June 2011
Where the property was located made it easy to access the A1 so no problems going either North or South. Only a 10 minute drive, if that, to the coast at Bamburgh. Very peaceful surroundings and the owner was very helpful and available.
Mrs Thompson
June 2011
Excellent location for all main places on the coast and inland.
Mrs Oates
February 2011
The cottage was the perfect place to escape to from the city. The cottage is in a perfect location, Belford is a cute town and the surrounding areas are all beautiful. We had an enjoyable break and we hope to return to Stable Cottage soon!
Mr Mrs Byrom
September 2010
Never having been to Northumberland before, we were not sure if there would be enough to see in the two weeks but we almost ran out of time to visit places. Belford being a nice central place for visits to the lovely coastline and many interesting houses and castles.
Mr Hickling
August 2010
Well thought out and homely cottage. Great location. Good parking and surroundings.

Absolutely loved this cottage ,it was very well presented and extrememly cosy.I love an open fire especially in the winter coming in from a windy day on the beach or a walk out in the hills.Great location with lots of good pubs in easy striking distance if you don't want to cook.
December 2009
A well kept, welcoming cottage that provided everything we required for a comfortable stay. The beautiful garden was perfect for a family, with plenty of room for children to play safely. We would definitely recommend this one.
December 2009
We had difficulty in the past finding a comfortable cottage for two, so decided to look at properties for four, and we were not disappointed. Stable cottage was delightful, well equipped, and superbly located for both the Northumberland coast and countryside. We have already recommended this property to our children, all now married with young families, and would have no hesitation in sending them there. The property was very convenient, with parking at the door, and a lovely garden, safe for even the youngest children. The owners have children themselves, and clearly know what makes your stay comfortable and extra special.
Mr Parker
September 2009
The cottage exceeded our expectations. It is ideally situated for exploring the North of Northumberland. Local facilities are a short walk away.
Mr Yates

Well situated for touring Northumberland. Miles of golden sandy beaches just a short car ride away.
Mrs Oakley
August 2009
The cottage is extremely cosy and comfortable but also light and airy. Although it is very close to the A1 it is quiet and perfectly located for exploring the region. There were lots of little touches which we appreciated such as the many lamps, all operated by one switch and the cosy wood burning stove although we didn't need to use it. The garden is a decent size for children to play. We also appreciated the selection of toys and children's books.
Mr Mrs Foy
