Stable Cottage was once, just that – a stable. The surrounding grounds historically belonged to the neighbouring mill. The property to which Stable Cottage belongs is named Millfield, since it was built in a field next to the mill.

Many of the surrounding properties are named after the mill. The mill race which is a spur of water from Cod Beck, runs past the mill to provide the power source. This mill race runs close to the grounds of Millfiled before rejoining Cod Beck further downstream.
