Stables Cottage was lovely, just what we needed for a last minute week away. The owner couldn't have been more accommodating and it was perfect for our little 15mth old to potter around in. Would recommend it to anyone.

The owners are perfect hosts, very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The many little extras, such as a welcoming home made cake and milk in the fridge made us feel very welcome. The cottage was superb, and is the best holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in. If we stay in the area again, we will definitely stay here. Thank you to the owners for allowing us to stay!

Want for nothing! by A FlipKey verified reviewer on January 6th 2014
A very comfortable, well equipped, warm (underfloor heating) cottage. Everything we needed was there. Within easy reach of Barnard Castle where there was a large supermarket & lots of individual shops & a weekly market. Very close to Bowes Castle if weather is inclement. Within easy reach of beautiful countryside & attractive towns & villages. An excellent base, with friendly helpful owners.

The property was all on one level and not allowing pets and smoking was ideal for anyone with access difficulties and allergies.
by Mr Thompson on July 26th 2012
The accommodation exceeded our expectations and the welcome we received was very cordial. The accommodation was central to the places we had planned to visit and there were other suggestions available in the cottage if we had run out of ideas.
by Mrs Shaw on July 25th 2012
Very safe for our toddler - an enclosed patio area, no steps, counter-level oven, safety feature on hobs etc. Knowing he was safe to run around and enjoy himself made our holiday! Our son also enjoyed seeing the chickens and using the play equipment.
