Guest Feedback for Breakwater

Our visitors’ book at Breakwater 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 Breakwater.

gorgeous coastal cottages in northumberland with sea views

This was our third visit to this amazing property. We love this spacious property, which is tastefully decorated and is in a great location, close to shops bars and restaurants. It is just a few minutes walk to the harbour and the sea. We like the open plan kitchen/dining/lounge which has a fantastic view of the Marina. I liked the fresh flowers and wine. I have already recommended all the properties we have stayed in over the last 10 years visiting with Coquet. Our friends have visited this property twice and the similar ones on offer at this location.

5*** Superb! This is the best property we have ever stayed in with Coquet Cottages. We were very impressed with the Coble Quay development. The views were gorgeous and we loved the underfloor heating. The fresh bread and scones in the welcome hamper were also lovely.

Beautiful apartment with beautiful views! Breakwater was very well equipped with everything that we needed for our holiday.

Cracking views, a lovely clean apartment. We’d stay at breakwater again.

Amazing views, the apartment has everything you need. 5* strongly recommend! The welcome basket was fabulous. Thank you.

This was a very impressive property- the view over the river and marina is stunning and the afternoon/evening sunshine on the balcony was a real treat. The beaches to the south are lovely and make an excellent walking route. The kitchen/living area is very well equipped and plenty of workspace. Amble is a decent size so there are enough shops to keep cupboards stocked. I cooked in the flat so can’t say what the local cafes etc are like.

Everything and more was needed for first night. We enjoyed the view, and the fact it had dedicated car parking. We felt very safe at the property too.

Excellent views from a beautiful apartment. It has great parking facilities. The White company toiletries were a nice touch.

The admin was impressive and timely from Coquet Cottages. We enjoyed the views at the property, and the wine from the welcome basket.

We love the views, the location and the security of the property. It is consistent with the excellent standards expected from a Coquet Cottages rental.

Excellent apartment with great views and the best equipped holiday rental we’ve ever been to. We really liked the scones and jam in the welcome basket and the view and furnishings.

Just wanted to say how nice Breakwater is – must be the best-equipped rental we’ve ever had – and will definitely return to Northumberland, so may well stay there again.

We recently stayed at Breakwater Apartment in Amble and have had a lovely week. The cottage was spotlessly clean and we had amazing weather. We love Northumberland and it was even better than normal with nearly a full week of sunshine!

Lovely location. It had some nice goodies.The flowers were lovely. Good location and the views. We do not have to at home so it was wonderful to see Newcastle United win in the FA cup!

The position by the harbour and the view from the balcony was appealing plus designated parking. Very spacious and modern. Booked by phone and was extremely impressed with the service and information we received. Very spacious, position overlooking the marina and harbour, very warm and welcoming. We have been very impressed from the time we booked the apartment till we arrived. The phone call just beforehand to check we had the arrival instructions was much appreciated.

We were looking for a cottage/apartment in that specific area. We chose Coquet Cottages based on our past experience. Stunning location; well-equipped and comfortable apartment; easy access to local restaurants. The bottle of wine in the welcome hamper was nice. Another perfect Coquet Cottages destination. The outlook over the marina at Amble was stunning.

We wanted something special as we were celebrating my 60th birthday while here; Also with the British weather being unpredictable we wanted somewhere comfortable and with a lovely view in the event of not getting out as much. We liked the Scones, after travelling here it was lovely to sit with a cup of tea and a scone. Everything was perfect, the view, décor, space, general ambience.

Wow! This has been just what we needed. A very relaxing and peaceful weekend. Great views on an evening with a glass of red was our highlight before settling down on the sofa’s. Lovely walks along the coastline and visiting surrounding towns. Alnwick is our favourite as it’s where we got married, so it was lovely to see The Treehouse in it’s Autumn form. The boathouse restaurant is a must if you are a massive “Sea Foodie” with local fresh produce. The better half tried lobster for her first time. The apartment is so relaxing and beautifully decorated. A truly magical place. Thanks Vicky!

Lovely apartment in a great location and what a perfect view. Had a great week exploring the Nothumberland cost, enjoying walks, views and food. Everywhere was great but we particularly enjoyed the Craster to Dunstanburgh Castle and back followed by lunch in The Jolly Fisherman. Amble has a great selection of places to eat. I would recommend The Old Boathouse and Jasper’s. We will definitely be back! Thank you.

We love Breakwater. It is a lovely place to go when you want to take a break. Thanks so much for letting us stay here. All the best.

Very good apartment with stunning views to stay in for! We loved the decor and style was to our taste. The welcome basket was great, included items for afternoon tea, breakfast and a glass of something in the evening.

The apartment is lovely with a wonderful view and probably the most comfortable bed ever! We have had a really lovely relaxing week.

After two visits to this amazing flat we will definitely be back for more! Can’t imagine finding anywhere else as comfortable, spacious, well equipped and with such wonderful views. Thank you for all the little extras in the bathroom and the wonderful welcome basket, so thoughtful, we have been well and truly spoiled.

Another relaxing week in Amble. We keep returning to the area because there is so much on offer! The apartment was beautifully presented and very comfortable with an amazing view.

Great apartment, view and well equipped. Very relaxing on the balcony. A grey seal came right in front of the apartment at high tide – brilliant!

Fantastic location on the harbour with breathtakingly good views.

A beautiful apartment in an imaginative and fitting new development.

The apartment was spotlessly clean, well equipped, beautifully decorated with amazing views of the Quay.
