Originally built in the 1800's as a stable this pleasant cottage has since been converted to offer accommodation for groups of up to four people. 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.

Region: 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.
Town: 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.

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.
Lovely homely cottage; great place to chillax.

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.
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.
