Guest Feedback for Castle Street Cottage

Our visitors’ book at Castle Street Cottage 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 Castle Street Cottage.



Absolutely wonderful! The cottage had everything we needed (there were four of us plus one black lab called Molly). The garden and the walks from it to the river and beyond were very easy to access. The house was very clean and well equipped. The parking was never an issue, we always managed to park nearby. We would highly recommend Castle Street Cottage. Last but not least your company is very well run. We thought the staff were very polite and welcoming. It was very easy to book the cottage and spoke to a very nice person. Warkworth itself is very central for visiting beaches and National Trust venues. Thankyou very much for a great holiday! Coquet Cottages keep doing what you are doing!

Great cottage close to amenities. We loved it, the standard was very high and the garden also beautiful.

This was an excellent base for our short holiday. We really appreciated the phone call from Mike telling us that the cottage was ready early- we went in around 4pm. The high end accommodation is worth the price.

Lovely house very tastefully decorated and well equipped. The Coquet team were a dream to deal with. A lovely location and a perfect stay.

We have stayed in this house before and knew we would be comfortable there. Love the location on the high street and the fact that the beach is just a walk away. I had mentioned when booking (which was quite a while ago) that I am gluten free. I was very impressed to find gluten free products in the welcome pack. Your system works very well! We felt at home there. We loved the huge new sofa and the beds were very comfortable. We were able to use the garden this time as we had some warm weather, and it has been beautifully looked after. We have now used Coquet Cottages 5 times and your service is brilliant. Very efficient and friendly. Thank you.

We liked that Castle Street Cottage was dog friendly, within walking distance to pubs/restaurants, and in walking distance to beach. The flowers were lovely on arrival.

We wished we had booked for a full week, as the cottage met all our needs, it was warm and welcoming. We loved it all! It was also great we could bring our dogs.

Lovely, clean and well presented cottage. A joy to find wine and beer in the fridge on arrival after a long journey in a heatwave – thank you.

Absolutely loved it! Beautiful cottage, very clean & tidy and had everything we needed. We liked that it was in Warkworth and we only needed a smaller cottage this time.

From the moment we walked through the door, this cottage exceeded our expectations. It’s very comfortable, and the attention to detail even went as far as providing dog bowls and treats for our dog. The kitchen was so well equipped it even had a pasta maker, and our children particularly liked the ice maker in the American fridge freezer. Most importantly, the house was warm and immaculately clean. It’s in an ideal location, great for walking to the nearby pub or restaurant in the evening and only 15 minutes to the spectacular Warkworth beach. The garden is lovely, secure for our dog, and must be stunning in the summer (our visit was late October). The cottage made for a lovely relaxing holiday.

The photos on the website showed an immaculate yet comfortable home, with lots of space in the living areas as well as beautiful bedrooms. We also liked the location as we wanted somewhere we could walk to restaurants from in the evening. It looked a very high quality and well cared for property. The cottage looked even better than the photographs on the website, and in previous holiday cottages that’s not always been the case. I was very touched by the provision of several gluten free items including bread and different biscuits. Although I had requested the odd one if it were possible, this exceeded my expectations. The bottles of wine and flowers were also very much appreciated, and my children particularly liked the fresh orange juice. My husband loved the local newspaper. The extreme comfort and cleanliness. Also, the warmth on cold days was lovely. Our children liked the Netflix option, and the facilities in the kitchen were exemplary, with everything we could have required. This is probably the nicest holiday cottage we’ve stayed in.

Excellent. The property was in an ideal location and very homely. The big kitchen, cosy living room, enclosed garden and comfortable bedrooms made it a very relaxing place to holiday. The welcome basket was excellent. I have never used Coquet Cottages before and must of missed this during booking. A great surprise and contained great essentials. Much appreciated. We were travelling with our dog and so the enclosed garden was very practical. I also appreciate a big social space in the kitchen. Otherwise nothing stands out only because everything was ideally suited to us. I would had happily stayed longer and would absolutely return.

The cottage was a lovely base to explore the beautiful county of Northumberland, a perfect mix of coast and countryside. It was very well equipped and had everything we needed. The super welcome pack was very much appreciated.

Having used Coquet Cottages before I am aware that you cottages are of a very high standard on all ways compared to other companies we have used. Everything from the furnishings, fixtures and fittings to the lovely welcome hamper and toiletries. We will definitely be booking again.

Just perfect. We were really amazed at the generous supply of food, wine, flowers and doggy treats! Very cosy and fully equipped.

This was our fifth stay at Castle Street Cottage and it’s really a home from home for us. Our cocker spaniel loves the garden!

Castle Street Cottage is a wonderful Cottage in an absolutely delightful village. Everything which we needed and more was provided!

A fantastic cottage with a wonderful enclosed garden to the rear. A perfect location for all local amenities. The wine included in the welcome pack was an excellent choice!

The cottage was spotlessly clean and had everything you needed for a pleasant stay, a welcome surprise was the hamper and the flowers, these were much appreciated. We found it very easy to travel to other places of interest. Having been in 24+ holiday cottages we found the guest information the best and most concise we have experienced.

High quality furnishings and equipment make this an excellent self catering cottage for up to five. The garden is very well laid out and the provision of seating and a large garden table and chairs in a large patio area make this an excellent spot to relax with friends or family, weather permitting of course! Although parking is on the street, this was never a problem for us – the car was directly outside the property for all our stay. Overall a high quality property with spacious rooms and facilities to match. The welcome pack was a very pleasant cherry on the cake.

Thank you for the marvelous welcome gifts and very well equipped cottage. We have had a lovely stay here! The welcome hamper is a delight for all, with treats for adults (thank you for the flowers & wine)

This is our 3rd visit to this lovely cottage and as per everything was perfect!

Thanks for a fantastic week – We loved the cottage and have been so comfortable here,
this been hard to drag ourselves away from the house on some days!

We have had a fantastic holiday at Castle Street Cottage – it’s very cosy, well equipped and comfortable, the setting is idyllic. Lovely village, countryside walks & our 3 year old little boy has loved playing on the beaches. The cottage garden is lovely & we have enjoyed a few glasses of wine in the sunshine.

Castle Street Cottage ticks all the boxes. A well presented home with lots of personal touches. The Kitchen is a treasure trove of utensils! The welcome hamper is a delight for all, with treats for adults (thanks for the wine!). We’ve really enjoyed our time in Warkworth and the cottage is very much part of the experience.

Extremely cosy and welcoming. Very comfortable seating and beds. Lots of fresh towels. Great kitchen layout with table to eat. The most wonderful garden to sit in the sun.

From the moment we crossed the threshold we knew our visit would be over far too quickly. Castle Street is a truly lovely property with a very relaxing effect. The house was very comfortable with everything we could have wished for – the Welcome Hamper was tremendous with Wine, Artisan bread, cookies, flowers etc etc etc. We enjoyed our days out walking and we looked forward to returning to Castle Street each evening to relax in front of the Log burner – I even enjoyed cooking in the smashing kitchen. Overall, I can only reiterate the comments of other guests and enforce what a lovely place Warkworth and Caste Street Cottage are, hope to be back soon

We have loved the stay here this weekend. Don’t change a thing. It is brilliant The garden is fabulous for our dog “Eddie”.

Stayed at this cottage previously, and it’s got a fantastic secure back garden for the dogs. The cottage is lovely and spacious, and is also perfectly positioned in the village of Warkworth.

The garden was a delight and offered a variety in seating areas.

I was delighted with everything in the welcome pack, thank you. The information folder was brilliant and the most comprehensive of any cottage we have previously stayed in – to put in the ideas for dog walks and dog friendly eating places was superb! The beds were SO comfortable, the kitchen a brilliant size and to be able to walk the dog from the cottage was fantastic. Everything suited us beautifully!

The beds were amazingly comfy, but I think the kitchen wins hands down, if it had been summer I’m sure the garden would have been gorgeous. And, it’s always lovely to arrive to a nice bottle of wine and some sweet goodies, thank you! Keep doing what you do! I tell everyone about your beautiful cottages and how wonderful you all are when I call the office or email. Please don’t ever lose that gorgeous personal friendly approach. It really is rare if not unique! Thanks for another perfect weekend!

It was clean, practical and finished to a high standard. The kitchen was a great size for dining. The garden would be great with kinder weather and its location in the centre of Warkworth is perfect for us. Also, it was the best Welcome Pack we’ve received in any cottage we’ve stayed in, it’s always nice to see that the kids had been included!

The cottage was tastefully decorated and furnished! Fully enclosed garden so our dogs were safe, also a large kitchen and log burner for winter evenings.

We arrived at Castle Street Cottage and we were not disappointed. It was everything we hoped for, it was very evident that a lot of thought and co-ordination had gone into the furnishings and fittings and just the detail of the decor (which pleased my wife no end!). The cottage was spotless and we had a wonderful week in Warkworth with our 2 doggies. We have said we would have no hesitation in using Coquet Cottages again or recommending them. the welcome pack for us and our doggies was just such a lovely welcome – thank you so much.

Beautifully decorated and furnished. Beds extremely comfortable. Very thoughtful welcome pack including treats for the dog. Excellent location in a lovely village – in fact it was all excellent and we hope to book again soon.

The cottage was as good as, if not better than, other cottages we’ve booked with other companies. Booking was easy, and emails were answered promptly. Directions were accurate and easy to follow. Welcome pack very welcome!

The welcome pack was lovely touch, particularly the fresh flowers, something I hadn’t experienced before. We loved the decor, the lovely comfortable beds, the kitchen, the list is endless!

Have already recommended you to family and friends. Your attention to detail and the quality and quantity of local information provided in the cottage really helped us to make the most of our short time there. Thank you for a fabulous Northumbrian adventure.

Northumberland was a new area prior to this visit so a chance to explore pastures new. My Wife was looking for dog friendly holidays, not specifically in Northumberland, and spotted your ad so chance really but glad we did as we all enjoyed our week – perhaps flattered by the weather – and were most impressed by the County, the Coast, the Castles and the feel and nature of Warkworth itself. Too much to see and do in a week so fully expect to be back again at a later date. Thanks for a great time and we look forward to coming back in the future. Castle Street cottage was a lovely experience from start to finish. Cottage had a nice feel to it and we all loved the kitchen. Convenient central location in village. Plenty of space for the 4 of us plus dog. Having a dedicated parking space would have been a plus but we had no difficulty finding space in The Square. Both kitchen and garden bigger than expected. Good location from which to drive out and explore other parts of the County.

Castle Street Cottage was a lovely experience from start to finish. Cottage had a nice feel to it and we all loved the kitchen. Would certainly recommend it. We do stay in different self-catering cottages in different parts of the country; none measure up to Coquet Cottages though, because of the consistently high standard and attention to detail.

Everything was first class and everything in the cottage was of excellent quality including the beds, lovely linen and fluffy towels. This is a first class luxury cottage in a lovely area with access to just about everything you can imagine. Attention to detail along with an amazing welcome pack and comprehensive guest information book makes this an outstanding place to stay.

We definitely intend on coming back! The welcome hamper was something which other holiday cottages just don’t offer and it made our holiday feel that little extra special. Thank you!

We thoroughly enjoyed our break at Castle Street Cottage, everything was just as we hoped and expected it would be. Thank you to all at Coquet Cottages for making our wedding anniversary weekend so relaxing.

We had a great time in this lovely cottage. The bedrooms were lovely and cosy. The weather was amazing and we loved Warkworth (especially the beach!). We had a great time at the Castle up the road from this cottage. Thank you very much for the welcome basket, it was very much appreciated.

Beautiful cottage, had everything we needed. We will most definitely return.

A perfect beautiful cottage in one of my most favourite places in the world. Thank you so much for the welcome basket and flowers, they made me feel very special. This was the perfect place to stay whilst visiting family who live locally and to also explore the Northumberland coast line. The weather has been amazing for this time of the year.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful Warkworth!! We have had a fantastic stay and enjoyed the castle, beach Spurelli’s Ice Cream in Amble, a trip to Northumberlandia and of course couldn’t miss a visit to Barter Books in Alnwick. Hope to com back! Thank you so much for the welcome pack.

What a fabulous cottage! We were very impressed with the standard and the wonderful hamper we faced on arrival. Thank you. Warkworth is one of our favourite places. We will be back!

This is a wonderful cottage! We were so pleased with the standard and cleanliness. In honestly we couldn’t find anything that didn’t want to make us live here forever! The garden is beautiful, even in the cold of November. Truly a wonderful weekend and we are planning a re-visit.

Beautiful, well equipped cottage in a prime location. Alnwick Castle and Gardens well worth a visit. A super meal in the tree house! We were impressed with the bus service running regularly through the village even on Sundays! 3 days was just not enough – we will be back soon!
