Guest Feedback for Bay View

Our visitors’ book at Bay View is great to read through over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and provide a wealth of recommendations on the best places to eat and visit, as well as some useful tips to benefit other guests. We also send Guest Surveys to all our guests after their holiday and some of their comments are listed here too.

Many guests have listed recommendations for the same lovely places, such as Warkworth Beach, Alnwick Castle and Gardens, Barter Books, Holy Island and the Farnes, but for the sake of avoiding repetition in this particular format, we have omitted these recommendations, but they can still be read in full in the visitors’ books in Bay View.

Bay View Cottage luxury self catering holiday property in Amble with sea view

Bay View was well furnished had everything we needed, it was luxurious.. we couldn’t fault it! The views were outstanding! It was modern and clean. Thank you for a lovely holiday, and and making the effort for us to check in earlier.

This is a lovely Cottage with a great view. There was easy access to the Harbour facilities. The cottage is also very pleasantly decorated.

Bay view was gorgeous, spotless and in a perfect location. I loved the sea front position, lying in bed listening to the waves crashing to the shore. Christine the owner kept in touch and also let us know we could get in early and stay a little later if we would like. There was nice friendly contact throughout our stay. We have never had dog treats in a welcome basket before, it was a lovely touch for our pet.

Bay View is a lovely holiday home. Overall the cottage was extremely comfortable. We liked the wall decorations, it is very well appointed and the views are stunning. The fresh flowers were a delight on arrival. We have already booked a week at the same cottage next year. Thank you.

Amazing view and very comfortable house. Very good sized rooms and a kitchen that has everything we needed including washing machine, iron etc. The terrace has a table and bench set which was great for sitting out admiring the view. Be aware there is usually a breeze blowing off the sea so you will need jumpers in the evening. The town of Amble has plenty of good quality restaurants all within easy walking distance. An ideal place to stay.

Fantastic location and accommodation right on the sea. We posted several photos on our Facebook page and one of our friends was so impressed that they said they were going to try and book this particular accommodation for themselves!

The holiday accommodation was first class. It was ideally situated, beautifully furnished with many splendid touches. It was well prepared for us and Covid-safe. We have already booked again for next year. It was spotlessly clean, spacious, very well furnished with some beautiful touches (lovely wall art). It was cosy, warm and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped. It had everything we needed for our holiday stay and, most important of all, it was dog friendly. We also enjoyed its proximity to the sea, how close it was to the town and the views of the ever changing scenery.

Lovely, well appointed cottage in an excellent location. Loved the little extras and the care taken to ensure that, despite Covid restrictions, our stay was virtually unaffected. Everything was just right!

We enjoyed the sea view and the location of the property in Amble. There was good parking, plenty of towels and storage at the property. Thank you for superb service as usual, particularly in being able to have early entry to the next property we went to stay in, after leaving Bay View, which I understand is not always guaranteed.

Fabulous location with awesome views!

We have a lovely stay and thought Bay View was very clean.

Lovely views, very comfortable, well equipped and well located. Amble is very central for visiting other places in Northumberland and has a good range of facilities without being overly large. Thanks to all for a lovely holiday which was much appreciated after lockdown. We will remember Amble and Bay View with great affection.

Lovely house with fabulous views. The location it was stunning. Watching the view change with the tides through the huge windows was wonderful. We even got to see dolphins playing right in the bay. We liked what was in the welcome hamper and the butter and scones!

We have just spent a fantastic week at this holiday cottage. Extremely clean, well equipped, comfy beds and FANTASTIC views from the lounge and master bedroom of the Sea and harbour: We spent hours just watching the sea craft go by. Great welcome pack provided and lovely toiletries. The towels provided were a great selection and very fluffy! Very good location, lots to do both locally and round and about. We will certainly be back! Definitely recommend.

We spent a relaxing week at Bayview in Amble. The property looks directly over the sea, wonderful views all day long with fantastic sunsets. The cottage is well located for shopping in Amble which has a good range of local shops. The cottage is very nicely furnished with comfortable seating and beds. It has a well equipped kitchen and some interesting artwork and photos. The welcome basket was generous and the house was spotless with plenty of antibacterial products available. Amble is well located for visiting Northumberland, the coastline in Amble and beyond is beautiful. There are some very nice restaurants in the town to book or takeaway.

One of the best holidays ever! Being able to take our little dog was fab! Views from sitting room & main bedroom amazing! A short walk to the centre of Amble & fab places to visit close by. Warkworth Castle, Alnwick Gardens & Castle, Alnmouth and Holy Island to name a few.

Excellent position, clean and tidy, equipped well. Ideal for our family needs. Wonderful selection of towels, and comfy beds.

Bay View is a lovely property, we can’t fault it. All the basics were included in the Welcome Basket as well as cake, hot chocolate and mince pies which were a bonus. Thank you to the property owner for lovely accommodation and to the staff in the office who are so helpful. Wish you could open a branch in Scotland with the same standard of properties. This was our third booking with Coquet Cottages and we will definitely be returning.

The house was absolutely gorgeous. It had everything you could need and the most fantastic views. The rooms were all beautifully decorated with good quality furniture and were all light and airy. The owners contacted us after we arrived to ensure that everything was fine. All in all, it was a lovely home and we could have sat in the living room watching the sea all day.

The property was outstanding and we could find not one issue. The owners whom we met on arrival were so welcoming and had the property in immaculate condition. We are so looking forward to returning to the property many times over the future years. Every family member adored the holiday and did not want to leave. The little added extras including fresh scones and flowers were much appreciated. Fantastic service from Coquet Cottages also. Everything was perfect.

We have had a wonderful week in your house, we loved the light in the morning over the jetty, amazing sunsets in the evenings and having everything so close by. We have explored Northumberland and walked for miles. Our favourite restaurant was Jasper’s. Great fish and chips from The Harbour Chippy. Thank you so much, we hope to come again.

Here for our sister’s 50th birthday. We chose the house because she loves being by the sea. She spent a very relaxing Sunday afternoon watching dolphins in the bay. She was delighted with her chocolates, it was so thoughtful of you and much appreciated. Enjoyed Amble and Warkworth and the area in general. House is great and we’ve experienced a fantastic starry night – such a clear sky with no light interference. Spectacular and very comfortable house with everything you have at home. Thank you so much!

The Tweedies and The Campbells

Great holiday in a great location. House delivered everything and more!

Hilary, David, Lucy and Harry

A fantastic and beautiful week! Love the view, house and the beaches. We loved Alnmouth, Newton by the Sea, Low Hauxley and many more. They are all mainly quiet especially Low Hauxley and you definitely have a great time. The ice creams here are delicious! The house is one of the best we’ve stayed in! The beds are so comfortable and we slept so well. The Fish Shack, The Boat House were the best food ever!! Wish we had somewhere like that in York! Thank you for a lovely, beautiful and fun stay.
P.s Thank you so much for the welcome basket, it was a nice surprise and very well thought out (things for everyone).

They Taylor Family in York

We had a great week. The weather was fantastic along with the views and our holiday home. Walked a lot, relaxed and slept a lot too. Coming here took us away from the everyday, which we should do more often. Looking forward to another visit.

Henry, Colin, Bob & Jenny

A wonderful location – Loved listening to the sounds of the sea and through the night. Spectacular sunrise and sunsets. Everything in the house well set up and the welcome pack was much appreciated.
Excellent walk into town via the piers – curlew, oyster catchers, Eiders and goosanders as well as a grey seal fishing. Northumberland coast still as beautiful as ever.

Mike, Chris, David, Andrew & Amanda

Fantastic holiday home that has been well thought out. The view is stunning. Loved watching the house martins nest. Lots of lovely sunsets. Food at the Boathouse and Fish Shack was first class. Hope to return as so much more to see and do.

Alison, Paul, Kirsty, Mathew & Baby Williamson

Back and not disappointed! Yet again we’ve had a lovely stay in this fabulous house. Thank you!

Karen, Dave, Tris, Andrew and Bob (The Dog!)

Bay View met our needs perfectly. I found it so relaxing to sit in front of the window in the lounge/dining area and lose myself in the views, we all just loved watching the sea.

The thought which had gone into the welcome basket made us feel so welcome. Thank you.

Had a great time in this comfortable well-appointed cottage. Stunning views and spectacular high tide, drama provided with the high winds of storm Eleanor – but we were cosy and warm in the fantastic house. Had a great NYE meal in the Old Boathouse and best fish and chips from the Harbour Fish Bar. We will definitely be returning as this feels like a home from home. So relaxing and de-stressing.

Another fabulous stay at Bay View. We were here for Christmas which didn’t disappoint! The champagne, chocs and choc log etc. were a great touch. The views from the house are outstanding and fantastic watching the waves crashing in.

Second year in a row for us – and it certainly won’t be the last! Another fantastic meal at the Fish Shack and the hatchery is well worth a visit. My Dad says we were extremely lucky with the weather (again) – this morning has been fantastic with the waves crashing against the breakwater against a clear blue sky.

Fantastic week, in a beautiful house with sensational sea views. Lucky with the weather. Cold but sunny. Wish I could stay here forever. Will never forget this week. Thank You.

We loved our stay in Bay View such wonderful views to sit and ponder over in the morning and evening. We had a fantastic meal in the Boathouse, if fish is your thing, then be sure not to miss this treat. The fish shack is good too if you want fresh fish and an early dinner. We love Northumberland and will be back, it has given us some down time much needed from the hamster wheel that is life! We will take away some happy family memories from Bay View.

Thank you for an excellent two weeks. The facilities are perfect as are the views! We sat in the lounge watching dolphins, seals and a wider range of seabirds. Great sunrises and sunsets and a constantly changing environment of tides, boats and people. We were born in Amble and this was our 70th birthday celebration, meeting old friends and revisiting the memories of our youth. We have had a fantastic time. Amble has much more to offer now, than then, and Bay View was the perfect base to set off from and return to, each day.

This was the second time we’ve stayed at Bay View in Amble and enjoyed it just as much as the first time. The views from the house are second to none and the house itself is cozy & warm. It’s well equipped and there’s a really good welcome pack waiting containing all you might need if you arrive late at night as well as a few extra treats. There are also lovely toiletries provided – and not just basics. The Christmas decorations really added to the ambiance and we will certainly return.Booking through Coquet Cottages is easy and there’s the added bonus of a discount for returning customers – what’s not to like? Highly recommended

It was all perfect, the welcome pack was a nice touch, the best things for us were the location, the luxury touches like top quality towels and bed linen, and of course The White Company toiletries – it was all fantastic!

We booked Bay View as it was dog-friendly, had great views and was close to the sea and local facilities. The bread was gorgeous! The welcome pack contained great goodies for cozying up in the cottage after a long walk. Everything was excellent, the location was amazing with the views and the cottage was lovely and warm. Overall we were very impressed in lots of ways.  We will try and book Bay View again next year but would have no hesitate in trying another Coquet Cottage.

The views of the sea were amazing, the location to the sea and to Amble town. Really yummy bread and scones, doggy welcome pack and fresh flowers were pretty too.

The cottage was beautiful and spacious and the decor was of a high standard. We appreciated the lovely Christmas decorations.

All the mod cons and comforts of a new build in a unique setting on the sea wall at Amble. Spectacular sunrises and sunsets and the ever present sound of the waves make this a wonderfully relaxed way to take a break from normal life, but not too far away from it all… so a pint and a take away can perfectly complete every evening dog walk. Lots of coastline, castles and quaint villages to explore but we found ourselves hankering to be back to watch the tide crash in every afternoon from the french windows upstairs or down. Lovely decor, nice ambiance.

Fantastic scenery. The house is well set out and beautifully comfortable. It really is in the best position in Amble – straight out of your front door [or back!] and into the glorious seaside. A wonderful place to unwind and totally relax.

We have had a wonderful long weekend break, the house was absolutely wonderful, very well equipped and the goodies on arrival were brilliant, thank you so much.
