What is a stable door?

chartwell green stable doorTraditionally, a stable door is associated with a working farm. It was originally designed for the function of keeping horses within their stable while still allowing them to view out onto the yard. From the seventeenth century, the stable door transitioned to become a key feature of farmhouses, preventing any loose farm animals such as chickens from roaming into the house.

These days you will find a timber stable door in many farmhouses and cottages in rural areas as well as in contemporary and modern homes. The top half of the stable door functions as a window, adding ventilation and letting light stream into your home. Alternatively, both parts of the stable door can be locked together to create a singular door function.

The dual function of the stable door offers the perfect solution on those warm summer evenings to allow fresh air to flow through your home as well as keep children and animals safely inside or out of trouble!
