Guest Feedback for Brada House
Our visitors’ book at Brada House 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 Brada House.
The living room was fantastic for the whole family to relax and we enjoyed the rear garden, it was a tranquil suntrap. The whole house met our requirements and we wouldn’t change anything.
First rate experience. We all enjoyed it immensely, there was a range of interesting and appealing items in the welcome basket. We loved the layout.
Lovely décor with a big living area. Utterly perfect and we have stayed in a lot of self catered properties! Light, bright, spacious and very important.. the owner has clearly thought very carefully about what guests would like. Exceptional customer service from start to finish. We have recommended Coquet to friends.
It was spacious and extremely well decorated and looked like a home from home. Every detail had been thought of.
The basket was nicely presented and the cake was delicious. The beds were comfortable, and it was so nice that there were basics like washing up liquid and loo roll, it makes a difference to have things like that and not have to buy them as soon as you get there.
A lovely light airy house .Beautifully presented, well equipped with a good outside area. We loved the location, and the accommodation catered for all our needs. The video tour and photographs were excellent, as was the parking facility. The accommodation and furnishings were very good, particularly the beds.
Thank you for a wonderful stay. Brada House is a absolute delight, everything was done to a high standard. The property was well equipped, it was a ‘home from home’ and have loved staying here. We have never been to Northumberland before and came on a friends recommendation, so glad we did. We loved the beach, castles, pubs, meals out, walks and had a great time with our grown up children. It was so lovely to be on holiday again, also the weather was much better than expected. We will be back. The welcome hamper was also a great touch and was very much appreciated.
We are here from Wakefield, on our first day out of restrictive lock down, what a year for everyone. We had booked last year and have visited in August when we could eat outside and some in door rules applied but could book in any where, so plenty of time to book ahead. W had a fabulous meal at The Potted Lobster but are booked up until mid July now. We recommend the scallops and black pudding and the half a lobster was amazing. The Barn at Beal for the Kipper breakfast was great which we visited before visiting Lindisfarne, which was magical as the sun shone, the sea glistened and all seemed well in the world. We visited Craster and had another magical walk to Dunstanburgh. We went into Beadnell and Saltwater Cafe and ended up sharing a table with Robson Greene. Went to the beach yesterday just the 3 of us at Budle Bay, what a privilege with miles of unspoilt sun and sand. Alnwick this afternoon, and then visiting Seahouses for Neptune’s fish and chips. We have not visited The Old Boat house since it was refurbished. Loved visiting Boulmer and Sugar Sand. Brada House is perfectly situated. Thank you once again.
What a year its been for everyone! We’ve been looking forward to out holiday in Bamburgh all year. It hasn’t disappointed. We love Brada House, it has been so comfortable and cosy. Bamburgh and its surroundings are so incredibly beautiful and special. The weather has been kind to us, we have done plenty of walking. Even Elsa our Spaniel is exhausted and that takes a lot believe me! Thankyou for having us and hope we can come and stay at this lovely house again.
This is an absolutely beautiful house in a beautiful location at home from home. It was cosy and welcoming with all facilities thoughtfully provided, thank you. A fantastic base to explore Northumberland, with easy access to Lindisfarne, the Farne Islands, Dunstanburgh, Craster and ALNWICK. The Jolly Fisherman pub at Craster is a must, but booking is essential. W are so sorry to be leaving but will definitely return. Its been a wonderful family holiday with lots of fond memories made. Thankyou for all that you have done.
Absolutely beautiful property which is a home from home. Literally the best property we’ve ever stayed at in all of our self catering holidays. We can’t fault anything as the owners have thought of everything! It is finished to a high standard and very spacious. So much so we’ve booked it for next year.
Brada House was in a great location, well cared for, good quality bedding and towels and it felt really clean.
This is a beautiful home, with comfortable beds. It was very well equipped and within walking distance of Bamburgh and Budle Bay. It had a very warm homely feel about it.

Brada House is a very well equipped house in a great location. The house had absolutely everything we needed for our stay. A fully functioning kitchen is important to us as we tend to eat in so the large dining kitchen was spot on. Excellent bedrooms, spacious and comfortable. Car parking right by the front door. Thanks to all at Coquet Cottages as well as Sue the owner who sent a nice text on the day we arrived to make sure we were happy. These things show that you all care about your clients. Thank you.
We are now home from our holiday and are very sorry to have left Brada House for some other lucky guest who will be arriving next. We had a fantastic time in a magnificent property. Thank you, we shall return.
Lovely up to date house. Very comfortable and well presented. Brada House feels really luxurious and well thought out. Children have enjoyed the tv room, WiFi and Netflix and we liked the up to date bathrooms and great showers. The bedrooms feel really calm and has nice big comfy beds. Excellent cottage, really enjoyed staying there and would stay again. Wonderful property, really well furnished, highly recommended. It was a good size for our large family, ideal location. We have stayed at Brada House before, it’s dog friendly and just the right size for our family of 4. The location is great for access to the beaches and the house is of great quality. The property was beautiful and well-presented, and the location was ideal!
The property was beautiful and the location was ideal! The interior was well presented and looked modern. The bread was exceptionally nice!!

Really nice cottage, very convenient for exploring the Northern part of an area of natural beauty.
Lovely property, excellent location, very convenient for dogs with easy access to enclosed garden. We will certainly book with Coquet again.
Two king sized beds as we were two couples and Brada House being a spacious property. Also dog friendly as our friends have a small doggie. It was perfect. We all agreed that along with the excellent welcome pack, the beautiful scones and cream cake were a delicious bonus after a long journey. Big thank you. Everything was perfect in Brada House it had very comfortable seating in the lounge, great beds, garden area. Also a text from the owners making sure that everything was to our liking. You have a first class business your communication is first class I cannot think of anything you need to improve on, well done to all your team.
We have had a wonderful time the house was great everything we could have wished for. The welcome pack was exceptional as always. We will certainly be booking with you again thank you for making our holiday.
I’ve previously booked holidays with Coquet Cottages and really appreciated the ‘10 visit’ additional gift thank you. Also thank you to the owners for letting us bring my daughter’s young dog for the weekend. He loved the kennel so much they are going to get him one.
The Jarvis Family, July 2019
Best self catering we’ve ever been to, pictures don’t do it justice, the owners have thought of everything – thank you.
We spent a fabulous week at Brada House just outside Bamburgh. The cottage was fabulous – beautifully decorated with lovely furnishings – it had everything we needed. The outdoor space was lovely and relaxing. The cottage is just outside Bamburgh with an easy walk to access the village. It was very quiet. The location is excellent – roughly 30 mins drive to Holy Island, Anwick Castle, Warkworth. We couldn’t have asked for anything more it was outstanding.
Beautiful place. The cottage itself is lovely, spacious and well fitted. The location is gorgeous. Would 100% recommend.

We’ve had an amazing first visit to Northumberland and definitely wish to return. Alnwick Castle and Gardens were a hit as was exploring Holy Island. We fully enjoyed seal spotting on the ‘Serenity’ cruise, from Seahouses. Beautiful beaches locally for walking Tilly our dog. Eating out: “The Copper Kettle” in Bamburgh does lovely scones. We also ate out at “The Victoria Hotel” and “The Lord Crewe” could recommend both, but The Lord Crewe had the edge. Brada House was the best self-catering accommodation we’ve ever stayed in – it was home-from-home and thank you for all the welcoming touches – wine, scones, bread, drinks and doggy treats. It was very much appreciated and we fully intend to return. Thank you.
Our first visit to Northumberland and we have thoroughly enjoyed it. The cottage is fabulous.

Lovely finishing touches, very thoughtful! We’ve had such a lovely time, thank you!

What a wonderful stay we have had here with our grandchildren Louis and Evangeline. Visited many places such as Alnwick Castle, Bamburgh and Holy Island. A day trip to Edinburgh which was a short train ride from Alnmouth, the castle was amazing. Brada House has to be one of the best well equipped self-catering ‘homes’ we have stayed in. Beautifully appointed, clean and totally relaxing. Thank you so much for our fantastic treats. The chocolates went down as well as the scones with the children. As for the adults! The wine hit the spot!! Made some special memories, thank you once again. Amazing.
The Locksons Family
Wonderful property, beautiful setting and a great stay. Our sixth visit to the area and Northumberland. The weather was fantastic. Lovely walks along Bamburgh beach, Alnwick, Cragside, warm pubs and the sun came out. Will come again!
Tanya, Hugh, Alex and Amy
Wonderful house. Our second visit to this property. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back in 2019 – thank you.
The George Family
Our third visit and still one of the best properties which we have stayed in. Thank you for the flowers, wine and welcome pack. We have had another wonderful week with good weather in our favourite area.
Mike & Rachel
