As part of a family of three beautiful holiday cottages and with a 5 star rating from Visit England, The Old Stable Cottage 1 offers superb self-catering accommodation in the pretty hamlet of Knitsely, Co Durham. The property has been tastefully decorated to create a comfortable and welcoming holiday home with everything you need for a relaxing stay.
Sleeping up to 4 guests, this delightful cottage is laid across one level with one king size bedroom and a twin room, a family bathroom and an open-plan kitchen, living and dining area to create a spacious feel. When the weather’s warm, guests can soak up the fresh air in the pretty garden to the rear of the cottage that boasts breath-taking views of the Co Durham countryside. This cottage is the perfect place to relax, unwind and enjoy the great outdoors. And you can even bring your dog with you, as this cottage allows guests to bring one well-behaved dog to stay too.  
Highlights include the Knitsley Farm Shop just up the road by car. Here you can tuck into some tasty home-cooked delights, like their award-winning breakfast or a Sunday roast, as well as get your hands on some quality local produce from their bakery and butchers. 
You’ll also find the Old Mill Pub and Restaurant not far from the cottage - serving up a great selection of food seven days a week from 12pm until 9pm. After a busy day exploring, this beautifully converted Mill House will make sure you’re refueled and ready to go. 
For those looking to immerse themselves in a little local history, why not take a 20 minute drive over to the Beamish Museum? This fantastic, dog-friendly museum tells the interesting history of the local area from the 1820s through to the 1940s. And of course, the bright lights of Newcastle are just over half an hour's drive away if you fancy a change of scenery.

Highly recommended. The cottages and surrounds are built to a high standard, which will surely pay dividends in satisfied customers and repeat bookings. We can't remember staying in a better property. We stayed in Stables 1 which was perfect for our needs, welcoming and warm. My wife is from Consett, so we are very familiar with the area, and being huge fans of the nearby Knitsley Farm Shop the location couldn't have been better. We had good weather as it happened, but I'd imagine even in winter the cottages would be sheltered from the wind, and quite cosy. We can't think of a better cottage that we've visited. The owners have invested more than most in the cottages and surrounds, which provided us with a 1st class stay. We can't remember staying in a better property.

We loved The Old Stables. The cottage was ideally situated to visit Keilder Forest, Hadrian's Wall, Highforce Waterfalls, Brimham Rocks, Derwent Resevoir. Overall we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The welcome basket was lovely and also the dog welcome pack was very thoughtful too with the dog bowls and blanket.
