Contacting us

Due to the current restrictions in place, we are working with minimal staff, some of which are working remotely. Therefore, it may take longer to get back to you, especially in the days following an announcement of a change which effects holidays in the near future. We politely ask when getting in touch with us, our preferred method of communication is email rather than by phone. Please include your 7-digit booking number on all communications with us – this allows our team to efficiently handle all correspondence. Please contact our team if you have any queries whatsoever at info@coquetcottages.co.uk.

 

Thank you for your understanding at this difficult time.
We hope you and your families are keeping safe and well and we look forward to welcoming you back to Northumberland soon.
