A delightful home from home

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.

Cosy cottage

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.

Excellent cottage

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.

Good stay, But.

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.


Very relaxing location and friendly local people. You could easily walk into the village for the shops, pubs, etc. The local area very pretty.

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.

Mrs De Maeschalck

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.

Mr Hunneybell

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.

Mrs Rich

A lovely, quiet property with lovely owners who were there if you needed them but otherwise left you alone.

Mr Hulbert

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.

Mrs Marshall

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.

A very comfortable and relaxing cottage to spend a week of walking the Northumberland coast and inland footpaths. We will return!

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.

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.

Mrs Greenwood
