The self contained Stables are set within the grounds next to the main house and provides an ideal base for one or two people with well behaved pets if required.
The ground floor room has a kitchen area, dining table and leather sofa with digital TV mounted on the wall. The wet room is situated off this area and the double bedroom is upstairs in the roof space. Equipment includes electric hob,combi microwave oven, toaster, fridge and all cutlery and crockery.
There are some really good local restaurants and bistros and the fish and chip shop is excellent – and all just five minute’s walk away in the historic town of Jedburgh.

The Scottish Borders region
The pretty market town of Jedburgh is situated on the main A68 in the south eastern corner of Scotland. She is 10 miles from the border with England, with its panoramic views at Carter Bar, and just over an hour's drive away from Scotland's vibrant capital, Edinburgh. This Royal and Ancient Burgh forms the historic gateway to Scotland.
The town is dominated by her magnificent 12th century Augustinian Abbey with its dedicated visitor centre, while her amenities include free car and coach parking with adjacent comfort stops and free WiFi access. There are numerous restaurants and cafes where you can relax and enjoy morning coffee, lunch, and afternoon tea, or simply enjoy a home-made ice cream sitting in the picturesque market place.
As an important Border town, Jedburgh is packed with history. Take a look at Victorian reforms to prison life with a visit to the Castle Jail... or follow in the footsteps of many famous folk who have enjoyed the delights of this beautiful town by following the town trail - Bonnie Prince Charlie, Sir Walter Scott, Robert Burns, William Wordsworth all walked these ancient streets. While arguably the most famous, Mary Queen of Scots, took up residence here - a visit to her 16th century fortified house will reveal the story of her tragic life.
However, Jedburgh is not just about its history - it is a living, vibrant market town. With its Festival and a firm focus on the country life, Jedburgh offers a superb quality of life when looking for a place to settle down. There are many delightful way-marked pathways to suit walkers of all abilities, and along with horse riding, golf, as well as angling in the world famous river Tweed - not to mention the excellent accommodation options - Jedburgh also provides the perfect base for your holiday or short break in the beautiful Scottish Borders.

"Excellent self contained accommodation, furnished to a high standard"
This was our second stay at The Stables. Excellent self contained accommodation. Very well furnished with well equipped kitchen area. Welcome pack on arrival. Close to all the visitor attractions in Jedburgh Town centre. Central for all of the Borders tourist attractions. If you don't fancy cooking after a day out exploring the area there are plenty of local eateries and would recommend The Carters Rest, Clock Tower and Toobaz as well as Abbey View takeaway. Will definitely book another stay here. Excellent value for money.

The cottage served its purpose as far as we were concerned,however the bathroom is to say the least badly thought out as far as the design is concerned and a certain amount of DIY know how was required to use the lavatory! The dowsntairs generally was very cramped but the bedroom was pleasant and the bed comfortable. All in all very mixed feelings.

"A home away from home"
My partner and I stayed at Allerton House Stables for 7 days, and it more than met our expectations. Chris and Carol gave us a warm welcome, then left us alone to enjoy our self-contained accommodation secure in the knowledge that they were next door if ever we needed anything. Allerton House Stables gave us more independence than a bed and breakfast arrangement. Nonetheless, we were given access to the main house and were able to borrow dvds and books. The accommodation was immaculate and very comfortable -- the bed was especially cosy. The location is ideal: quiet yet just a few minutes walk from the centre of the town.
Just a few wee suggestions: it would be great if the wet room could somehow be converted into a dry bathroom, and a little extra cupboard space for food supplies would have been helpful.
That said, I would highly recommend it. We'll certainly be back.
Thank you for your kind comments, we are delighted that you found the Stables accommodation met your requirements and hope to welcome you back before too long,
Carol and Chris
