Guest Feedback for Coquet View
Our visitors’ books are 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 Coquet View.
After having to cancel our holiday in 2020 it was lovely to return to Warkworth and Coquet View, which is our favourite cottage. The weather has been amazing, which made the weekend. As always the house was comfortable and lovely. The hamper was lovely thank you and also the doggy treats. Our new whippets Bill and Ben loved it, it was their first time to the beach which was amazing. We look forward to returning in the future. Many thanks.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay with our friends. It has been a fantastic opportunity to explore this stunning part of Northumberland, which up until now was pretty unknown to us. Such an amazing coastline and pretty little villages. We are tempted to bring out Golden Retriever next time. Coquet View is a perfect delight. Such a charming, cosy, comfortable retreat spent after a day out. Many Thanks.
This is a gorgeous Georgian cottage, we loved it’s character, the courtyard and garden. It was perfect./h2>
Beautiful property, it was really clean and we had a fantastic holiday. We loved the hamper and dog treats. Warkworth is lovely and the property had an enclosed garden, which was good for our dog. Thank you for a lovely holiday, we have stayed many times with your company and we are always very impressed.
It was immaculately clean… immaculate!! Stunning location that was central to village and amenities and an easy walk to beach… perfect. It has been beautifully furnished and has everything you could possibly want whilst on holiday, you can see the thought that has been put into every detail.
This property was perfect for a family reunion after separation due to lockdowns. It was very comfortable & thoughtfully done. Beautiful setting & lovingly maintained.
We’ve been to Coquet View so many times. There’s something about it that just feels right. It’s not pretentious in any way, has lovely light rooms and is in such a lovely location in Warkworth and also central for any trips out. Thank you for the hamper with my favourite wine and also for the Nespresso milk frother which made our holiday! Lovely to be able to make our own ‘posh’ coffee in the house. I have and always will love coming to Coquet View. It’s my special place.
Lovely house with beautiful furnishings. It had a great garden for sitting out when it’s warm.
The situation was perfect for us and the property looked interesting when we first saw it. The welcome basket was better than other cottage companies. The property had excellent beds (best we’ve slept in) and the furnishing were great, along with the cleanliness.

It has been a huge delight to stay in this glorious Georgian house. We would love to know the history of it! There are Georgian features with sublime windows which are a delight and a pleasure. Its setting by the river adds to its charms. A memorable holiday indeed.

Lovely luxurious fortnight with family from Gosforth and our young Ada who is 3 years old had a great time with the toys from the garden room. We are very impressed by the standard of the kitchen equipment, welcome pack and the lilies. A supply of ripe Victoria plums from the garden was a bonus, which were too good to waste. Thank you to all the team including the gardeners.
Sue, Robert, Mary, Andrew and Ada from Besford August 2020
What a wonderful stay we have had yet again! This is our 6th stay. Thank you for taking so much care to make us feel so safe and comfortable. The Lemon and Courgette cake from Bertram’s is amazing! We have paid our annual visit to Fenwick Gallery and started our Christmas shopping! We are already looking forward to our next stay. Thank you again!
Karen, Andrew, Jack and Joe Kitchin August 2020
What a wonderful house, so peaceful by the river and all you could want for a luxurious holiday. This was our first post Covid lockdown holiday. We felt very safe here as there was excellent information and cleaning regime. We enjoyed the Masons Arms so much we went 3 times!
Lucy, Pete , Luke, William and Tony from Hampshire August 2020
Wonderful place, it was the best holiday home with the best views, we’ve ever stayed in. We sat in bed with our cups of tea in the morning, overlooking the river which was so peaceful. We loved how the property had a boutique hotel feel to it!
The cottage was beautiful and comfortable and the location was idyllic. We absolutely loved our stay, thank you.
Amanda, August 2020
How appropriate that our first trip after lockdown was here to our beloved Coquet View. So good to be back. We’ve done our usual walks. Alnmouth, Boulmer, Dunstanburgh, Low Newton and St Cuthbert’s Cave. The Masons Arms are doing an awesome job with their social distancing and systems. It was good to be able to have a pint in a pub again!
Emma , Mark, Matthew. Juliet and Rex the dog July 2020
Beautiful cottage in a perfect location. Beautifully decorated throughout and two of the bedrooms having an amazing view of the estuary and it’s wildlife. Very well equipped. Felt very luxurious. Everything we needed for six adults to have an perfect holiday. Thank you.
Photos do not do it justice for the amazing views and overall it was a fabulous cottage. Thank you!
Beautiful cottage. Enough in the welcome basket to keep you going if you haven’t had time to shop before arrival, A lovely touch. Very clean cottage!
This is our 5th stay with Coquet Cottages. The cottage is so warm and chilling, especially the beautiful Xmas decorations and welcome pack. Thank you for a great time in your lovely home.
A wonderful weekend in this glorious cottage. We have been so happy, very cosy despite the dreariest weather! Coquet View is so well equipped and perfect for a 6 friend and 1 dog reunion. Thank you for a great time.
Gorgeous sitting room and dining room. Superbly equipped kitchen and the lovely decor. We loved everything in the Welcome Hamper! Specially the fresh bread, beers & tea. The dog welcome basket was also super! Good size for 6 people and dog friendly location.
I’ve previously booked a holiday with Coquet Cottages, I’ve been here a few times now. It’s my special place to be. The wine, beer, bread, butter and milk. Lovely to be able to arrive and have a cuppa – sometimes we forget teabags so always welcome is the different teas and coffees. It’s just so peaceful. I love this place.
Position with a great view, lovely and quiet and very spacious. We also enjoyed the outside space and the garden is so beautifully kept – a real pleasure to spend time in it. Miles came to dog sit one evening for us. He was a delightful young man and the dog sitting service is really appreciated. It enabled us to have a great meal at Jaspers. We had a lovely holiday. Thank you to all at Coquet Cottages for your great and prompt service. Very much appreciated.
We wanted to stay in Warkworth as it had been recommended to us and have 2 dogs and the property looked and was perfect. We liked the local produce in the welcome basket, the master bedroom overlooking the river and all the little touches around the house.
This is the sort of place you don’t want to tell anyone about because you want to keep it to yourself!
Great house! Great facilities! Great Location! … even the weather was good.
Our third stay at Coquet View (and into double figures in Warkworth). House was as beautifully presented and equipped as ever. Getting the extra logs for the stove was definitely worth it for the cosiness of the fire even if the weather was actually mild and dry for the week. Visited some of our usual haunts – Barter Books, Amble, Alnwick, Craster and Dunstanburgh Castle but also went on an adventure to Vindolanda, the Roman camp site – well worth the 75 minutes drive – a great day out (and good scones in the cafe!). We have already booked to see this year out and the next year in!
Another wonderful Christmas in Coquet View. As always everything was just perfect. We love this house – our time together here is so special. Many, many thanks to Julie & Mark (especially Mark’s patience over the radiators!). Super awesome!
We’ve completely fell in love with Coquet View. I’ve previously booked holidays with Coquet Cottages and when I found this cottage online the location, floor plan, size of the house and garden suited us perfectly. The decor and ambiance was superb here, but it was still so well equipped, comfortable and cosy.
Our second visit to Coquet View. We have already booked for next year. The location of Coquet View is so peaceful and we absolutely love the walled garden. So sad to be leaving but so glad we have booked again, can’t wait to come back!
Another great stay with Coquet Cottages at Coquet View. Back soon!
What a truly great home Coquet View is! In thirty years of self catering this place is right up there at the top and we have had a few weeks of uninterrupted delight! We’ve enjoyed an early morning tea or coffee in bed with the windows wide open to admire the view, sitting at the benches in the back garden and by the river or Bertram’s for a breakfast, afternoon tea or an early supper! Many thanks to Coquet Cottages for making the best of memories for us.
Thank you again Mark, Julie and all the tema at Coquet for a fabulous stay – 10 years on from our first time at Coquet View and we love it as much now as we did a decade ago – such a beautiful and comfortable house, so lovely to wake up and see the herons wading down the bank every morning. Really enjoyed visiting all our favorite places.
Very enjoyable weekend treat away from it all at Coquet View. Lovely, elegant and comfortable. Enjoyed all the walks around Warkworth. Going home very relaxed and recharged. Thank you.
A wonderful stay, and our first at Coquet View but fourth in Warkworth. As usual Coquet Cottages have done us proud! Beautiful house, sumptuous and luxurious but homely and comfortable at the same time.Kids loved the dressing up box and exploring the cupboard which was full of toys. Lovely goodies included in our welcome basket, especially the scones – thank you! Overall a fabulous, fabulous stay! Many Thanks.
We’ve had another fabulous week at Coquet View, the whole family and Finn the dog enjoyed every minute. Thank you!
Thank you for a lovely week at Coquet View. The village is lovely and so are the locals, we’ve really enjoyed ourselves. The children and dogs had all the space they needed to run around and play. It’s a pity that we have to go but we will sure be back!
Coquet View lived up to our expectations as excellent! We were interested in this cottage because of it’s location in Warkworth, and being so nearby Felton where my son-in-law fishes. The welcome basket was very much appreciated and we all enjoyed the soft loaf! Being able to sit outside in the garden with a drink and was great, we didn’t have to worry about the dogs because the gardens enclosed.
Coquet View is a really wonderful property, incredibly comfortable and well thought out. the beds were perfect and so comfortable and we had really good sleep every night. The cottage was so well equipped with tea, coffee and more. We felt so welcomed and all the little touches were so appreciated as it was very thoughtful, thank you.
Second visit to Coquet View. Had a wonderful week. I love the house it has so much character and has always been spotlessly clean when we have arrived each time. We’ve booked again to go next year.. but hopefully we’ll be able to ‘sneak’ another visit later this year as well. We were so sad to leave. We wish Coquet View was ours!
A very enjoyable and relaxing week in this beautiful house and it’s lovely location. Enjoyed the coastal walks and many of the beaches in the local area. Thank you for the basket of goodies and the other thoughtful touches which made our stay “luxury”!
Our second Coquet Cottage holiday. Again, another wonderful break in a beautiful house. Molly (our dog) and all the family have loved the beaches. Thanks again.
Another Coquet Cottages holiday enjoyed by all. The perfect location for Walking, sightseeing or beaches. Good lunches at local restaurants. Thank you Stephanie for dogsitting Samuel the spaniel again! I think he likes you more than us, it must be the cuddles! We will return in September.
Thanks for a lovely week. The house is very comfortable and relazing. Northumberland is a beautiful place.
A lovely relaxing holiday in a beautiful cottage, all so comfortable and clean. Thank you.
It has been such a lovely stay in this beautiful cottage. It has been so nice to wake up and out the window you see the river. It would be wonderful to stay here soon again.
We have had a fabulous week aided by some lovely weather. Whole family have had a wonderful time – our first holiday together as a family for many years. Coquet View is everything you could wish for in a holiday let and we particularly liked the position and the view. Everything we needed had been provided and thank you for the welcome hamper – and the dog loved his too! This was our first visit to Northumberland after 25 years and we had forgotten how stunning the beaches and scenery are. Thank you from all of us for the best stay.
We have had a lovely week here at Coquet View with our 2 children and dog. The cottage is absolutely beautiful and well appointed – spotlessly clean and we have noticed the many admiring glances from passers-by. To top it all off the weather has been great. Good food (& beer!) at local pubs, plus the chinese delivery service was excellent. Hope you hae a good time as all of us have had here!
Our first stay in Coquet Cottages and a very pleasant experience it has been. The house is well appointed and very comfortable to stay in. We have enjoyed some lovely walks and ventured all accross Northumberland. We hope to return not only to Warkworth but to Coquet View in the future. The welcome pack was wonderful so thank you.
Our third stay with Coquet Cottages. Looking forward to future trips here as dogs and humans alike have had a lovely time
Our seventh stay in Coquet View as always fabulous! The new radiators are FAB! The sofas also look very nice. See you next time!
What a beautiful cottage with a lovely view and with such a spectacular beach nearby! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would definitely return!
Our 5th stay with Coquet Cottages. Every time we stay we are still amazed by how beautiful these dog friendly places are. I think Coquet View may be our favourite now and hope to come back in the summer.
This cottage has been the perfect second home to spend new years in. The lovely views and friendly village have made our stay all the better, and we would like to say a huge thank you to all at Coquet Cottages for our lovely stay.
Thank you again for making my time so special. All the wonderful little extras that make all the difference. We will return so thank you.
Thank you for a lovely stay we really enjoyed it as a family.
Our second visit to Coquet Cottages and was most enjoyable. The house is beautiful, the welcome pack was full of lovely goodies and cake was just yummy! The village is so pretty and the people are so friendly, we love Northumberland and we will be back!
Thank you for a most enjoyable holiday walk all the comforts one could desire. My only regret- it was too short. With so much to see and do. We look forward to our next visit.
Another fabulous time in beautiful Coquet View. We love Warkworth and Coquet Cottages. Mark & Julie your properties are second to none. Looking forward to returning soon.
A lovely week has been had by all in this beautiful cottage even the weather was kind to us!
Had a wonderful stay in this gorgeous cottage. the village is perfect, lovely walks and entertainment just minutes from the cottage. Hope to come back sometime soon.
So good to be back. Thoroughly approve of the new sitting room decor and the heating is excellent – very toasty. Our dogs have ran their little legs off and Bert (our dog) looks a bit less portly than when he arrived. Looking forward to coming back in Autumn.
Yet another wonderful stay! Coquet View give us a perfect setting to spend time together and be a family. Our lives are so busy yet it felt like time stands still for a short while here. Cannot wait for our fourth visit! Thank you for everything.
Delightful house and very comfortable. Welcome pack was superb. Would full recommend staying here! Thank you so much.
Coquet View is very comfortable with beautiful furnishings. Heating works well & we were always warm. Welcome pack was superb. Dogs say thank you for their welcome pack too! A good holiday was had by all.
There is nothing about this house and Warkworth that we don’t love. A very relaxing, comfortable, peaceful and luxurious house. The dogs love the garden! Thank you.
We have had a great few days, the house is fantastic and the welcome pack was great. Would love to stay here again, everyone at Coquet Cottages was very good, helpful and friendly. Thanks for a lovely time.
Wonderful week! The house is beautiful. Well-equipped and very comfortable. The weather this week was excellent- so much to see and do in this beautiful part of England. We will be sure to return to London with some great memories.
A fabulous stay in a wonderful house. Beautifully decorated and everything was immaculate. Well catered for equipment and essentials. First time in this house although not first time with Coquet Cottages. A stunning location and have enjoyed every aspect. Thank you for a brilliant week.
Our third visit down here and love it more and more!Thank you for the welcome packs for ourselves and our dogs, also our cakes on arrival were yummy! We will be back.
Coquet View is a lovely place to stay. Ourselves, the children and the gran-parents have had a super holiday. Thank you for the cake and the welcome basket. Lovely Northumberland we will be back.
Our second visit to Warkworth this time came with family to celebrate my 50th Birthday. We have had the most amazing week partly due to staying in such a beautiful house which my husband has fallen in love with. Coquet View is a credit to you, the welcome basket was very much appreciated by all of us. A big thank you from all of us and we hope to see you again soon.
Our second visit to Northumberland but our first stay with Coquet Cottage. Coquet view is a great house in a good location, loved the walk to Warkworth beach and our dogs spent many happy hours there. Plenty to see and do locally.The cottage is comfortable and well equipped, pretty mych everything we needed was here. We all slept well in the lovely, comfy beds.Thank you for the flowers and the welcome pack. A lovely touch. We’d love to visit the area again.
What a wonderful time we have had here in Coquet View. Beautiful cottage in pretty Warkworth. We could stay forever.
Where’s the week gone!? Another fabulous stay in our home from home here in Warkworth. Both dogs are exhausted and going home for a rest; we are going back to work or exams but will return!
Once again we have had a wonderful holiday in Coquet View. We still enjoy the local walks and pubs.
We’ve had a lovely stay, been very comfortable and enjoyed our time here. First holiday as an all adult family and it has been great.
We have stayed in holiday cottages from Inverness to Cornwall. Coquet View is special – tasteful, stylish and stunning location. Will revisit!
Lovely cottage. Everything you could want – super bedding and beautifully decorated.
Lovely plants outside really pretty and a very nice hamper o welcome us. Great location and in a lovely village!
Another lovely holiday at Coquet View! Our eighth Coquet Cottage holiday and our third at this cottage. It’s perfect! We’re coming back in August and we can’t wait. Thank you for such a lovely holiday.
Lovely cottage, beautifully equipped and the Christmas decorations were a bonus. We really did appreciate the welcome pack – especially the scones!
We are regular visitors to Warkworth but have never stayed on this side of the village before, having a view of the river was wonderful – especially when the weather was so good! Thank you for everything.
Coquet View has spacious rooms; superking size beds; beautiful, fully secure back garden; riverside location; comprehensively equipped; very dog friendly; etc!!! In 30+ years of self catering holidays in the UK and abroad, this house is as good as it gets and a true home from home. The standard of service was exemplary throughout and every member of the CC team was always very genuine in their desire to be helpful and meet our needs.
We loved the house – so much character. I think we have found ‘the’ place to be for us. So close to the river walk, only a mile from a beach, dog friendly pubs with good food…. we were sad to leave (and so were the dogs as one sat mournfully in the kitchen as we packed to come home! Thank you for being so thoughtful and making our stay so enjoyable.
Not our first time in Warkworth or with Coquet Cottages, but is our first time in Coquet view. I guess the easiest way to describe the experience is ‘simply the best’. Many, many thanks to everyone who made this a truly memorable break.
We are three couples all of which are new to this wonderful house. Had some fantastic days. Lovely to make some memories with friends that will last forever. This is truly a house you can call a home from home.
Another fab holiday at Coquet view. We’ve been here several times before & absolutely love it. We’ll definitely be back again soon! We are sad to be heading home & back to work. Better get booking in our next trip back! Thanks again for a fab holiday.
Great to be back at Coquet view! Another lovely week of long walks, beaches and plenty of good food.
Wonderful cottage, felt like home! Northumberland is beautiful. We had a really great time visiting family and seeing the gorgeous coastline.
Thank you for a fabulous stay. House as good as ever. Lots of rain, but still a brilliant week.
A lovely cottage – full of everything you need – luxurious furnishings and a comfy bed. We love the area and will be back.
Our second time in Warkworth but first time in this lovely house. This is a beautiful well equipied house great for families. Fab garden, toys & balls were a winner. There is lots of space and everything has been well thought out.
What a beautiful house and all the attention to detail was amazing. You certainly know how to pamper a family. The setting is so peaceful in a delightful town. We have enjoyed exploring and walking the footpaths along the river and to the beach.
Fabulous week in a gorgeous house! Everything we could have wanted was here – thank you. Don’t want to go home.
Wow, what a lovely house. Best we’ve stayed in. everything here that you could possibly want. No rain thank goodness, nice sunshine for last few days. This break was very well needed after a tough few years so to rest up in such a lovely place was just what the doctor ordered.
What a fabulous house. The attention to detail was second to none and the welcome pack was fantastic. Sorry to leave, but will definitely be back!
This is our first stay at Coquet view and hopefully won’t be our last! The house is beautiful, as is its location. It is a lovely base from which to explore Northumberland. We’ve had a few lovely walks enjoying the scenery. Thank you so much for the fantastic welcome basket and all the luxuries this house has to offer. Our 15 year old son really appreciated the play station 3! One week isn’t long enough here, so hopefully at some point we will return! Thank you.
Good to meet Julie and Stephanie after so many holidays. All our friends enjoyed the cottage and we’ve never had to test the ‘child-friendliness’ of the cottages before but this one passed with flying colours.
We love coming to Warkworth – we’ve always had first class service from Coquet Cottages and that’s been a key feature in us coming back (I think this was our 7th trip). Coquet View was lovely.
Beautiful cottage in a fantastic position. Very comfortably & elegantly furnished. The welcome pack was much appreciated! Thank you for providing everything we needed for a fantastic long weekend.
Well done to all at Coquet Cottages in delivering a first class service and making our holiday memorable.
Really loved our stay at Coquet View & our third stay with Coquet Cottages, we got the best weather which made the whole stay even better & we look forward to staying with you again next year.
The position of Coquet View was excellent, with a lovely view of the river. Everything about the cottage was of such high standard, so tasteful and with so many nice touches around the property.
Perfect, perfect, perfect. We loved it, found it very relaxing, a wonderful house and beautiful village, very friendly people, and a perfect location. Thank you.
Everything about the cottage was perfect, so welcoming and homely, all the little touches, it was home from home and more, very friendly people to deal with and a lovely friendly booking experience.
Coquet View felt like a real home from home. We all very much appreciated the comfort of the house and the personal touches. Throughout the booking process and our stay, Julie & Stephanie made us feel like nothing was too much trouble and they were available to help – I admire their freshness considering the number of guests they must welcome.
We were very pleased with the quality of the house – I said when booking that a holiday has to be going to somewhere better than you have at home and Coquet View was certainly that – nobody wanted to leave!
Very easy to book and very receptive to additional requests for children. Very clean and high standard throughout – the additional touches such as welcome pack and the cake (are you branching out into the bakery basis!!) Plenty of toys for our grand daughter who remembered some of them from last year. Overall standard was very high.
It felt as if someone cared how our holiday went. Having the books, play station, games, some cleaning bits etc made all the difference. Home from home but away from home. Very easy to slot in and get on with exploring the beaches and sites.
What a wonderful house! So tastefully decorated and filled with everything we could have needed, which allows for a relaxing break away from home. Thank you so much and we hope to visit again soon.
This is our second stay at Warkworth and your beautiful cottages. Coquet view is the most amazing house, it is really home from home, everything about it is beautiful. Thank you for all the wonderful touches, we didn’t need for anything, can’t wait to return.
What a fantastic holiday, not only a really beautiful house but amazing weather too. We all had a truly lovely time. We really appreciated the little touches especially your lemon drizzle cake. This is our third time with Coquet holiday, although our first at Coquet View and we will be back again to visit this truly beautiful house.
A fantastic week had by all who came and enjoyed all that this house and surrounding area has to offer. A house with a stunning location, bags of character with loads of ‘nooks and crannies’. Simon and I had a wonderful time with 2 sets of families thoroughly enjoying their stay. All ages from babies, teenagers up to grandparents were catered for.
Another brilliant holiday in Warkworth courtesy of Coquet Cottages. Thanks Julie for all your hard work in making our stay so relaxing and so much fun. We look forward to our next stay.
What a beautiful place to stay. The children have had lots of fun playing with all the toys, a lovely touch. Thank you for their Easter eggs too. A lovely area, we will definitely be coming back to explore some more.
Totally fallen in love with Coquet View – feels like home but with a much prettier view! Mark enjoyed all the birthday decorations and we both enjoyed the bubbly. Hoping to be back here very soon.
What an amazing place. Never have I been on holiday and felt so at home! The house feels warm and welcoming and has so many nice added extras and features. Beautiful views and village – would not hesitate to come back. Thanks.
5 years on the run staying in a Coquet Cottage and it just gets better! Coquet View has to be the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. Another fantastic week, yet again in Northumberland in the care of Coquet Cottages, especially Julie who thinks of everything and makes the holiday top notch. Thank you.
We all had a wonderful time in this perfect house. What beautiful and calm surroundings you have created, we had the best time. The weather was extremely kind, and so were the locals. A real find. We will be back.
There is an old saying ‘A little of what you fancy does you good’. Well we fancy this beautiful house, we fancy Warkworth and the lovely countryside it nestles in, everything about the area, and it has certainly done us good, the old saying is true! Many thanks.
What a beautiful house, we kept having to pinch ourselves to make sure we were here! We had the best New Year’s eve, lots of visitors all suitably impressed. Your attention to detail is superb, the quality of the bedding and towels and all the luxury touches. Booking is very easy with you and the lovely Stephanie and Yvonne. We will definitely book with Coquet Cottages again. Thank you for the great baskets of lovely treats, we enjoyed them all! Can’t wait to return, thank you.
Once again we have had yet another enjoyable holiday in this delightful house. Our basket of goodies and Julie’s lemon drizzle cake was first class. We will return again next year.
What a wonderful treat before Christmas! Coquet View is a labyrinth of delight from when you first come in. we have all fallen in love (again!) with Warkworth and its welcoming shops and pubs and, of course, its friendly people. A final festive touch was the carol singers that graced our doorsteps on Tuesday night – brilliant. We’ll be planning our next visit soon.
As dog owners it is great to be able to take Charlie with us and still stay in top quality accommodation.
First rate – the best cottage we’ve ever had in over twenty years of this type of holiday. It was so nice to be contacted on arrival and the future discount is very welcome. We will definitely be returning to a Coquet Cottage to take advantage!
We have stayed with Coquet Cottages several times in recent years and will continue to do so (another booked already for November). The personal service from Julie and her team is excellent. If anything goes wrong it is sorted out promptly and without fuss.
We just adore Coquet View, I miss it already! Jasper loves the beaches and has been sulking ever since got home! Julie does a wonderful job and does not miss anything out – thank you very much for always being so accommodating.
Coquet View is a lovely warm home and does not feel like a holiday home but more like somewhere I could live. We all loved it.
Coquet View was a fantastic place to stay and met, or exceeded our needs in so many areas. Being able to have our dogs with us as well in such a lovely home made it all the more special, and we will definitely be recommending you to anyone who wants to rent somewhere in the area. Thank you!
We will definitely be recommending to friends as well as returning to you. Well done on a genuinely luxury service provision and a fantastic customer service.
This was our first visit to Northumberland and staying at a beautiful cottage like Coquet View helped to make the trip stress-free and memorable. It was lovely and perfect from start to finish with beautiful weather and superb surroundings.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the level of thought that had gone into the equipping the house from PS3’s down to beach blankets and wouldn’t hesitate recommending to our friends.
This is our third visit to Northumberland/Coquet Cottages and I have recommended you to numerous people. The first time I booked I found your website by chance and I’m glad I did as your cottages are the only ones I’ve found that are highly rated that accept dogs.
The dog spent a fair amount of time looking through the front windows watching the swans/ducks on the riverbank opposite, when he wasn’t worn out after running round on the beach.
We love Warkworth but have never stayed there before. Not only is the village beautiful and in a great spot for sight-seeing, the location of the cottage with its wonderful views is really the icing on the cake. All in all, a lovely holiday!
So professional but also very personal and friendly. We felt completely at home. Cleanliness is very important to us and we initially discounted Coquet View because it takes dogs. We have had a bad experience with this in the past but the housekeeping was excellent and we were totally unaware of any of the unpleasant traces dogs can leave behind!
The whole booking process felt very personal which we welcomed. The cottage and all it contained was first class. We took all the family including our 2 year old granddaughter who absolutely adored the selection of toys both inside the toy cupboard and outside in the garden. The whole family thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were equally pleased with the surrounding area which did not disappoint.
The property is gorgeous and lovely to return to after a day on the beach or sightseeing. It’s nice to get the 5 star treatment, just because you want to take your dogs on holiday doesn’t mean that you want to lower your standards on where you stay – Coquet Cottages certainly meets high expectations.
Once again the whole thing was great – the facilities and overall care taken with the property was of a very high standard and we were very pleased with everything.
Faultless 5 star accommodation and a lovely view of the river also.
Lovely cottage in beautiful area. Furnished to high standard together with all the touches that make for such a relaxed holiday. What we have come to expect from staying at other properties on your site.
The cottage was stunning, and we were over the moon we had picked that one! The welcome pack was fab and had everything we could want, and the place just felt comfortable and homely.
It feels like going to a home not a holiday let. We could move in tomorrow!
We loved everything. Coquet View is a beautiful home from home that is very hard to leave.
Coquet Cottages provide luxury accommodation with the quality of a classy hotel but the personal touches and attention to detail make the holiday experience extra special – AND most importantly for many – you welcome dogs.
The quality and feel of the cottage was second to none – it really felt like a home, not a rental cottage. It really felt that our enjoyment and experience was important to you and that you cared.
The cottage was wonderful really nicely decorated and very comfortable. It was so nice that when we turned up we were worried about having the dogs there but after a while we realised all would be okay.
We enjoyed the view from the house, the quietness and the wildlife. We also enjoyed the space and quirkiness of the house although my 8 year old begs to differ with the PS3! It also made a nice change to be able to walk to the shops & beach.
The cottage was 110% perfect, the fixtures, fittings, location and garden were fantastic.
The cottage was so clean and tidy on arrival and we appreciated the quality of the fixtures and fittings. The cottage was immaculately presented and beautifully decorated. We had high hopes after looking at the photos on the website but the reality of Coquet View surpassed all expectations. It offered our family the space we desired and provided a very relaxing stay.
Great service, obviously! Cottage location great and loved all the children’s/our facilities in the garden. And thank you very much for organising my Mum’s cake (delicious) and the present – she was absolutely thrilled.
Lovely cottage in beautiful area. Furnished to high standard together with all the touches that make for such a relaxed holiday. What we have come to expect from staying at other properties on your site. Friends who stayed with us were so impressed with the standard of the accommodation and the fact that everything had been thought of. Had a lovely stay and are looking forward to spending our Christmas at Coquet View.
The cottage was stunning, and we were over the moon we had picked that one! The welcome pack was fab and had everything we could want, and the place just felt comfortable and homely. In some places you feel you have to wash the dishes before using them, or you are wary of walking around with no shoes on, but there was none of that here!! We had a lovely time, and genuinely were all sorry to leave it yesterday. Five of us stayed this time, but it is the second trip for two of us, and we hope to be back in the future!! Coquet View was a fantastic place to stay and met, or exceeded our needs in so many areas. Being able to have our dogs with us as well in such a lovely home made it all the more special, and we will definitely be recommending you to anyone who wants to rent somewhere in the area. Thank you!
Its impossible to single out something we like best- love the decor, the comfy beds, the Aaran Aromatic toiletries, the fact that it feels like going to a home not a holiday let. We could move in tomorrow!
We loved everything. Coquet View is a beautiful home from home that is very hard to leave. Please don’t change a thing – its fabulous.
Coquet Cottages provide luxury accomodation with the quality of a classy hotel but the personal touches and attention to detail make the holiday experience extra special – AND most importantly for many – you welcome dogs.
The quality and feel of the cottage was second to none – it really felt like a home, not a rental cottage. Quality fixtures and fittings all round. We genuinely cannot think of anything at all that could be done to improve things – the stay really was that good! We absolutely fell in love with Coquet View – the overall package of cottage, fixtures/fittings and service are an absolute credit to you in this day and age. WE WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK!
The cottage was beautifully decorated and the attention to detail was second to none. This was our first visit to Northumberland and staying at a beautiful cottage like Coquet View helped to make the trip stress-free and memorable. It was lovely and perfect from start to finish with beautiful weather and superb surroundings.
The cottage was wonderful really nicely decorated and very comfortable. It was so nice that when we turned up we were worried about having the dogs there but after a while we realised all would be okay. The cottage was beautiful and we can’t wait to book again. It is also great that we can leave our dogs happily at Happy Hounds where they can play and we don’t need to worry about them.
We enjoyed the view from the house,the quietness and the wildlife. We also enjoyed the space and quirkiness of the house although my 8 year old begs to differ with the PS3! It also made a nice change to be able to walk to the shops & beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the level of thought that had gone into the equipping the house from PS3’s down to beach blankets and wouldn’t hesitate recommending to our friends.
There was so much for the children to do it was hard to get them out of the house! On Freddie’s birthday we just let them all play in the house all morning as that was what he wanted to do! The personal touch with a present was very kind. It was great to have all basic items such as dishwasher tabs available, so you dont have to worry about buying all these small items. The cottage was very pretty and comfortable. It was good to have so many pictures on the website and so much information so I knew exactly what the rooms were going to look like. Thanks very much for everything, we had a lovely week! Thanks again for Freddie’s present. We took him to Castle Mania and went for dinner at Zecca which was just right for him.
The cottage was so clean and tidy on arrival and we appreciated the quality of the fixtures and fittings. The cottage was immaculately presented and beautifully decorated. We had high hopes after looking at the photos on the website but the reality of Coquet View surpassed all expectations. It offered our family the space we desired and provided a very relaxing stay. Thank you very much for a great holiday! We have been recommending your company highly!
Great service! Cottage location great and loved all the children’s/our facilities in the garden. And thank you very much for organising my Mum’s cake (delicious) and the present – she was absolutely thrilled. Julie, many thanks to you and your team, we had a great holiday!
This is our third visit to Northumberland/Coquet Cottages and I have recommended you to numerous people. The first time I booked I found your website by chance and I’m glad I did as your cottages are the only ones I’ve found that are highly rated that accept dogs. On this visit we stayed at Coquet View which is a gorgeous house, clean, comfortable, spacious, well equipped, fantastic views over the river and a great garden for the dog to run round in – had a great time. The dog also spent a fair amount of time looking through the front windows watching the swans/ducks on the riverbank opposite, when he wasn’t worn out after running round on the beach. Previous visits have been to Magdalene House and Tall Trees which are lovely houses, comfortable and clean but Coquet View has been my favourite, so far… I’m sure there will be a fourth/future visits to Coquet Cottages.
Elegant cottage – beautifully appointed with a lovely outlook. Great to see herons and a variety of estuary birds from the windows. A very kind gesture to provide welcome goodies – especially Easter eggs – all very much appreciated. Hope we will be back soon.
We’ve had a fantastic week at Coquet View. Although the website is good, it didn’t convey just how fabulous the house is! Comfy beds, warm and cosy. Bert the dog loved his dog gift basket and it was very kind of Julie to bake a birthday cake and leave a card and pressie – so personal. Thanks so much, we will be back.
This was a really fantastic way to spend Christmas and we will definitely be treating ourselves again. The cottage is beautiful and so welcoming and Julie’s phone call on Christmas day was so appreciated. We cannot wait to return.
Thanks for letting us rent your beautiful cottage, we loved everything – the beds, the bed linen and the towels were SO soft. Coquet View had everything we needed and more home from home. The whole cottage was very tastefully decorated for Christmas. We will certainly be recommending your cottages to friends.
We have had a fab time here relaxing and going to the pubs, the beaches are really lovely. The house is gorgeous, this is our second time here and we will definitely be coming back, the dogs have loved it so much. Many thanks.
Fantastic home from home, it’s so nice to feel this comfortable, especially when you have dogs. We also enjoyed the local beach and local food. Fond memories will stay with us for a very long time.
We have stayed in rented cottages in our annual visits to Warkworth over the last 15 years and Coquet View stands out as by far the best. It’s not just a beautiful old house in a fantastic location, with style and comfortable interior, but also so relaxing. We feel we have been here longer than just a few days, we don’t want to leave. Many thanks Julie and Mark for your beautiful house and the thoughtful extras – we will return.
What a beautiful house! We’ve enjoyed every bit of it – particularly the wonderful beds, fantastic views and the wood burning stove. Hope to return next year! Thanks Julie for allowing us to stay in your beautiful house.
This was our second visit to Coquet View and the house was even better! Somehow the place just soothes away stress and we begin to relax immediately. Even work seemed easier to get down to here because of the lovely, comfortable surroundings. We hope to be back next year.
Our second visit to Warkworth in 6 months and again we were not disappointed with the accommodation. Coquet View is a lovely home with lots of lovely, special touches. Very easy to relax here and enjoy the peace and quiet. I know we will be back. Thanks for everything Julie.
Our second visit to Coquet Cottages. This house is superb! Feels so homely and great for the dog, he was so chilled and so were we. Beaches are absolutely breathtaking. Thanks Julie for another fab holiday.
An excellent house to stay in with a family and dog – like home from home. Everything done to a very high standard. We have had a lovely relaxing holiday. Thanks Julie for all your attention to detail. A definite house to recommend to friends.
A very lovely 2 weeks. Thank you for creating a house that seemed like home straightaway. Thank you for a lovely holiday, sad to be going.
What an amazing place and cottage! We loved it all. The wood burner is amazing – yes we tried it in the middle of June. Everything was fantastic – we will be back.
We have had a fantastic week and with the exception of one day the sun shone none stop. House amazing – would be hard to beat, everything thought of. There is so much to do but if you only venture out once it has to be to Bamburgh Castle – a must! A good walk around the village to find all the other Coquet Cottages is fun too. The Coach Inn, Lesbury is lovely for a quality pub grub. P.S. Cabosse in the village is a must!
We have had a fantastic week and two days here, the weather has been great. Coquet View has been perfect, I don’t think our dog’s Barney and Buster want to go home as we have walked miles each day with them, come to think of it we don’t want to go home either, must book another week soon. Thank you Julie and Mark for making our stay more special.
We always find it difficult with 2 dogs to get good accommodation, this was better than good, it was fantastic. What a beautiful house with great views, lovely garden, drinking a coffee sat in the sun! Weather was good, although a little bracing today. The beaches are to die for, and all dog friendly! Loved it, beautiful beaches, villages and towns and lovely people. Thank you Julie, a real credit to you! We will be back!
A truly remarkable cottage with lots of charming features. It surpassed our expectations. Our daughter described the house as similar to a ‘maze’. We completed several walks from the book on the coffee table named, ‘Walks with your children in Northumbria’. The Warkworth walk which skirts the village and finally finishes with the castle was lovely and with great views of the river and castle. Holy Island is worth a visit we visited the priory and enjoyed the views from the highest point behind the priory. Brilliant beaches at Bambrugh, Alnmouth and Warkworth. The walk from Craster to ‘Dunstanburgh Castle’ was great even though there was lots of other people completing the walk due to it being Bank Holiday. Rothbury Scenic Route road well worth the drive, ‘pretty village’ walk. Great week.
Enjoyed a lovely short break at Coquet View. Thank you Julie for ensuring a truly memorable stay. The children loved the games and DVD’s provided. During our stay we visited ‘Woodhorn’ museum. What a great insight into coal mining! Also this was a cheap activity for families, £2 to park the car and free admission.
What another fab stay at Coquet View. We have always loved Warkworth and this time we brought some friends with us. They loved the village and the house too. The weather was was much better than predicted. Sunny wonderful walks. Alnmouth to Boulner. Sat on decks in ‘sun’ at The Fishy Boat Inn. Lovely! Such a fantastic house!
We have self catered for many years – in some expensive locations – but nothing compares to our week here. SIMPLY FABULOUS. Everything that could be done to make our stay a wonderful experience was done – and more!!! We have been very cosy and comfortable and have nothing but praise for the service provided. The weather has been very good all week – an added bonus. Particularly enjoyed our trip to Rothbury, very pretty village. In the words of the late General McArthur – “WE WILL RETURN” – The dog was most impressed too!
Coquet View far exceeded our expectations with its exceptional comfort and style. The weather for March has been very kind with sun and blue skies daily – no rain! We enjoyed the following places: Bamburgh Beach was our favourite with its miles of beautiful clean sand. Our dogs were in seventh heaven. Cragside (Nature Trust) near Rothbury was both unusual and delightful. Alnwick Gardens was excellent but would be better during the summer months (no flowers out yet). Barter Books at Alnwick is recommended for a rainy day and avid readers. The walk along the headland from Craster to Dunstanburgh Castle. A walk along the beach at Druridge Bay followed by a visit to Country Barns farmshop and cafe at Widdrington. For any quilters then a visit to Catrice Barn at Hemscott Hill Farm at Widdrington will enable you to add to your stash! Great week had by all – we’ll be back.
What a fantastic home to spend your relaxing time in, the only thing missing was a butler. At this time of the year, there are limitations on where to visit, but the local people are helpful and friendly. We went out to see the seals, on a boat covered in ice, very refreshing! The tree house at Alnwick was open, what a fantastic place for the kids. Beamish is well worth the visit, the staff are really amusing, Geordie humour is wicked! We cannot praise this house enough, thanks.
We feel rather privileged to be the first family back in Coquet View after last September’s floods. Sometimes photos and words exaggerate a place but at Coquet View the reality is even better! We’ve had a an absolute ball and another trip soon to Warkworth is a must. Julie, thank you to your team for everything – you have a lovely house but more importantly a lovely home. See you again soon I hope.
This was our second visit to one of your cottages and we had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Excellent accommodation with lots of thoughtful extras. Despite the rest of the country being wet for the week, our stay was sunny and dry. Lots of beach walks plus Alnwick, Hadrian’s Wall, the Cheviots and bird-watching.
This is our first visit to Coquet View and we have thoroughly enjoyed every minute. We have visited many of the places recommended by other guests in this book. Our favourite being Craster and the walk to the magnificent Dunstanburgh Castle. The town and its surroundings are beautiful. A trip to Warkworth Castle is worth doing, as its history and character are interesting. The views from the top are outstanding. The beaches are so dog friendly – I’m sure our dog, Maddie feels the same way! Thank you for a lovely week.
Excellent accommodation and lovely touches. Weather was good to us and we have visited lovely places. The favourite was Alnwick Castle for the children. We had tea at the ‘Treehouse’ (based at Alnwick Gardens) and it was enjoyed by all. We to return again and there is still lots to explore. P.S. The children loved the amount of toys and summerhouse.
We have been completely knocked out by beautiful Northumberland and could hardly believe that Budle Bay (North of Bamburgh) wasn’t in the Caribbean! The house and garden have been a lovely and comfortable base and we so appreciate being able to bring our dogs to such upmarket accommodation! Thank you! P.S. Bistro 23 in Alnmouth is very nice for dinner with lovely food and nice atmosphere.
Where did the week go? Not a dull moment. Loved Coquet View, homely, comfortable, sophisticated – all things to everyone including our three teenagers. Hoped to spend lots of time on the beach but weather a bit wet! Rediscovered Alnwick and the fab gardens. Had supper in the Treehouse, great fun. Hired bikes from Pedal Power in Amble, very helpful owner – best to book in advance. The sun came out for an afternoon, so dashed to Alnmouth for a spot of paddling and games on the beach. Discovered a wonderful Northumbrian Pipe maker at Longframlington, who gave us an introductory talk and lesson on playing the pipes – not as easy as it looks. Cragside is a must. Berwick-on-Tweed also and we had a great day in Edinburgh – expensive shopping spree with three teenagers but majestic city, well worth the 2 hour drive. Hope to be back soon!
Our first visit to Coquet View! A fabulous, 5 star holiday home – exceeding all our expectations. We enjoyed 6 days of coastal walks with our dogs, Ralph & Chad, and even spotted a dolphin off the coast at Craster and a seal swimming past the house in the beautiful river Coquet! Thank you so much – we hope its not too long before we can return!
Everything about Coquet View was first rate. We have stayed in 5 star accommodation in Northumberland before but this was the best by far. We got great weather and travelled to wonderful locations. The kids loved Alnwick Gardens with the new kids’ water area where they can get really wet and have lots of fun. We also visited Cragside, Bamburgh Castle, Seahouses and lots of other great places. ‘The Mason Arms’ in Warkworth served excellent food as did the ‘Red Bull’ in Alnmouth.
Lovely two weeks, weather good overall. A wonderful cottage, luxurious and homely. First visit to this area and ‘WOW’ what a place! Loved the beaches and unspoilt scenery. As well as well known places, I would recommend the Upper Coquet Dale and Ingram Valley – both beautiful and wild. Farne Islands were a great experience and we visited twice and loved seeing the puffins and seals. Would love to come back one day as everyone is so friendly.
First visit to Coquet View. Well equipped and furnished and keeping to the standards found on previous visits to your other cottages. Fantastic range of toys for children and books, etc., for the adults. Good food and drinks in local pubs, ie., Mason’s Arms & Hermitage. Great centre for visiting local towns and villages. Sure to be back for out 6th visit.
A beautiful cottage, very tastefully furnished throughout. The dressing up box and all the toys were a big hit with Isabel! Alnwick Gardens are definitely worth a visit – if you have children a change of clothing is advisable (or two!). The walk from Craster to Dunstanburgh Castle is particularly scenic. We have had a very enjoyable holiday and would definitely recommend Coquet View to our friends.
Wonderful weather and wonderful Warkworth and surrounding area. We have had busy week celebrating a 100th Birthday with friend and we are now exhausted. Thank you for the use of your beautiful house.
We’ve had a great week at Coquet View. The house is exceptionally well equipped and well furnished and in such a lovely location. The children have so enjoyed playing with all the toys and dressing up and we have all been able to relax and recharge. The babysitting service is a real plus and we enjoyed a very nice meal at Blackmore’s in Alnwick and a friendly welcome and ‘good pub grub’ at the Mason’s Arms in the village. We’ve had a great time walking along the coast and spending time on the beaches and after a week of waiting for the sea to calm down, finally got out to the Farne’s on our last day. It was a absolute delight to see all the nesting birds on the cliffs and in the water and the puffins are fantastic. Plenty of seals too. All in all, a great week and big thanks to Julie and her team for providing us with such a fantastic place to stay.
Coquet View – quite simply the most luxurious and comfortable accommodation. Warkworth a lovely base. We’ve all become ‘twitchers’ this past week and loved watching the herons fish in the river. Very much enjoyed exploring the North East coast and will miss it greatly with its abundance of castles and spectacular coastline. Absolutely enchanting! A smashing week!
We’ve had a fantastic week. Coquet View provided such luxurious accommodation. We really enjoyed following three walks from the book, ‘Northumbria Walks with Children’ (Warkworth, Holy Island and Bamburgh). Bamburgh beach is gorgeous. Millie and Arthur loved their daily walk (and swim) along Warkworth beach too. We can recommend the local bacon sold in Warkworth village store. The Treehouse restaurant was a lovely setting for a meal. Many thanks.
Beautifully furnished to such high specification. We often have difficulty finding properties that are luxurious but still take dogs however, Coquet Cottages fill this gap and this is exactly why we have used the company again. Fantastic property and service, will definitely be using the company again as will our friends who went on holiday with us.Thank you so much for making it such a memorable stay!
All three of us just wanted to let you know how grateful we are that you provided such a lovely place to stay and spend our Christmas in a home away from home.
The owner Julie went to great trouble to care for us during our stay – we felt very valued customers! I will definitely be recommending Coquet Cottages to my family and friends. Thank you for sharing a wonderfully comfortable home!
This is the second time we have stayed with Coquet Cottages and everything has been perfect. Thank you so much for yet another lovely holiday!
What a wonderful time we have had here in Coquet View. Beautiful cottage in pretty Warkworth. I could stay forever!
Back to Cottage
A fabulous stay in a wonderful house. Beautifully decorated and everything immaculate. Well catered for in equipment and essentials. First time in this house although not first time with Coquet Cottages. A stunning location, have enjoyed watching king fishers and swans that visit regularly. A return visit to The Old Post Office Bistro for a fabulous meal and also to the Warkworth House Hotel.
