Swansfield Stables’ Holiday Cottage lies on the edge of the historic market town of Alnwick, a ten minute walk to the centre and a short drive out to the sea in one direction and beautiful, open countryside in the other.
The Stables, designed, we believe, by 19th Century Newcastle architect John Dobson, is now our family home and we have converted the old Cart Shed into a year-round holiday cottage, with an extra en suite double room available, which we hope will offer something a little different.
The cottage has been designed to a high specification and was converted by local builders. It is very well insulated and heated by a wood pellet biomass boiler and is partially powered by solar electricity.
The Cart Shed looks out over a cobbled courtyard with an outdoor dining space, a BBQ and a wood fired pizza oven, both for use by guests on request. It has its own private outdoor sitting area next to our vegetable and fruit gardens and poly-tunnel. The views from the garden across the surrounding countryside are stunning and, when the light is right, you can see the sea in the distance.
