Located next to the church in a pretty Northumberland village, this snug, warm, traditional and romantic cottage for two retains all its old-world charm and is ideal for enjoying this stunning area.

If you are looking for a traditional, romantic cottage for two, then look no further! The Old Stable is located next to the church in the pretty village of Eglingham with a great pub and is steeped in 18th Century history and has recently undergone a beautiful, internal refurbishment at the loving hands of the cottage’s owners, to allow their guests to enjoy the very best of both worlds; a range of modern facilities alongside original features and character a-plenty!

The Old Stable and coach house was originally built for the local vicar in around 1706, who also happened to be the Archdeacon of Lindisfarne! The cottage is snug and warm and still retains all of its old-world charm. The typically warm colour of the Northumberland stone and the former stable windows and other features retain the essence of the true nature of the building, while the many new facilities, such as free guest Wi-Fi, a cosy, wood burning stove, dishwasher, washing machine, off-road parking and a large, enclosed garden make this a luxurious, little retreat.

The Tankerville Arms pub in the village can offer you a friendly place to enjoy a drink and a meal and from Eglingham, you are only 15 minutes drive from iconic Alnwick Castle and the world famous horticultural treat that is The Alnwick Gardens. Alnwick is a market town and has a wide range of independent shops, bars and restaurants. Barter Books is a must visit, as is The Treehouse Restaurant located in the Alnwick Gardens and there is so much more to see and do here!

Wooler has a great range of independent shops too and affords access to the foothills of The Cheviot Hills about 25 minutes from the cottage while the glorious Northumberland coastline, Bamburgh beach and castle and Seahouses beach, harbour and trips to The Farne Islands is less than half an hour away.

The Old Stable welcomes one well behaved dog.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

  • Master Bedroom with a queen-size bed (larger than a double, smaller than a king-size)

  • Electric hob and 2 small ovens, a microwave, fridge with ice-compartment, slim-line dishwasher and washing machine
  • Central heating
  • Lounge with wood burner (an initial supply of logs and kindling is provided), TV, DVD and a range of books and some games
  • Garden with 2 separate seating areas: the patio with a table and chairs; and the sheltered side courtyard area with park bench style seating

Very cosy cottage. It had everything we needed to cook with and relax. The garden and secure outside space gave us peace of mind that our dog was safe. The garden is beautiful. Due to the village being snowed in for two days we had plenty of time to enjoy the facilities in the cottage. Prior to this we enjoyed walks with our dog around Holy IslandRead more, Berwick, Craster to Low Newton and Rothbury. Hide

You could not fail to be impressed by the quality and high standard of this cottage we have stayed in many cottages in this area and it was one of the best we want to revisit in a summertime as most attractions are not open to the public this early in the year

Cosy, clean & very well equipped. Home from home. Lovely cottage and beautiful garden, easy to book. The Tankerville Arms is a warm and welcoming pub with lovely food and is only a stone's throw away.

A lovely characterful cottage in a very nice, quiet, friendly village. The Tankerville Arms is very friendly and the food very tasty, even for vegetarians. I was worried about the church bells waking me up during the night but this wasnt an issue.

The Old Stable is cosy and warm with a lovely enclosed garden for the dog. There is a pub just down the road and quiet and peaceful. The local attractions not far away.

Beautiful little cottage, perfect for our small family. The garden allowed our dogs to safely relax in the late afternoon and the lounge was a snug area for us to nestle down infront of the fire in the evenings. The bath is lovely and deep to help soak away the aches after a long day walking and the shower gave us a great kick start to the morning.Read more All our family needs were covered, the owners have thought of everything. The pub is 2 mins walk, very friendly and welcoming even tho we had two dogs and a small baby! Plus the food is scrumptious and very reasonably priced. The landscape is stunning and the local beaches are not a disappointment, Bamburgh and holy island is a must see!!! Hide

The Old Stables is a very quiet and peaceful but with plenty to do and see nearby. The cottage is ideally situated between coast an hills but the village has no shops and no life in itself.

If you’re looking for a seaside holiday with a difference, visit Northumberland – a region brimming with beautiful golden, sandy beaches, rolling hills, craggy moorland, bustling market towns and fishing villages, and more castles than in any other county in England.

Situated in the North East of England, this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty boasts no less than 39 miles of unspoilt coastline to explore and a calendar packed with exhilarating water sports options. To indulge in a spot of surfing, kayaking or powerboating, take a trip to one of the many breath-taking Northumberland beaches - where dogs love a good walk and fresh local seafood is never far away.

Home to the awe-inspiring Cheviot Hills and the historical Hadrian’s Wall, the Northumberland National Park is renowned for its open spaces, award-winning Dark Skies and stunning rural backdrops - and is the least populated national park in Britain. Offering access to challenging hikes, horse-riding, rock-climbing and a multitude of other action-packed activities, the park is one of the region’s greatest draws.

There is a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted, whether you take a boat ride to the Farne Islands to admire the colony of Atlantic grey seals and puffins, or explore the Kielder Water and Forest Park, home to magnificent ospreys. If it’s history you’re looking for, the imposing Bamburgh Castle and the world-famous Alnwick Castle are undoubtedly worth a visit.

Alternatively, if you’re seeking the bright lights of a city adventure, Newcastle upon Tyne is the place to go. Here, you can experience world-class culture, outstanding attractions, superb shopping, impressive live shows, top entertainers and delicious cuisine in abundance.
