Our visitors’ book at Curlew 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 Curlew Cottage.
Curlew Cottage is well equipped, inviting, comfortable and very clean. We had an enjoyable stay! The location was excellent as it was very close to the beach and castles.
The property lived up to our expectations as was per your website – spotlessly clean, warm and welcoming. We really appreciated the thoughtfulness of providing some milk and butter alongside the basket. My personal favourite item was the Viennese Whirls which tasted like they’d come from a proper bakery. I liked how bright and airy the property felt – it was unfussy and uncluttered, and it was nice to sit with the doors open to the garden and let the fresh air in. We thought this cottage was fantastic.
Fantastic cottage which had everything we wanted and more, the standards were very high.
This is a beautiful cottage and had a very comfortable garden. The Coquet Cottages website was easy to search by location. The staff which contacted us either by phone or email were very helpful. We would definitely book with Coquet Cottages again.
Lovely cottage that was well equipped. Good location for Bamburgh and coastal walks! It had a lovely enclosed garden.
Thankyou for another wonderful stay at Curlew Cottage. We enjoyed beautiful Dunstanburgh again, especially the beaches, walks, runs and The Potted Lobster. We loved the coffee at Wyndenwell in Bamburgh. We would recommend Cragside House and gardens, and thought the golf was best at Bamburgh.
We have had a wonderful week in a new area of the country to us. we were fortunate to have fantastic weather to explore all the local sights. Thank you for the lovely welcome pack, which was very welcomed after a long journey. We were recommended Curlew Cottage and we would certainly recommend it also to others.
We have been reliving old times here in Northumberland from this beautiful cottage. We had great weather and some lovely walks. The Potted Lobster in Bamburgh was good, also The Jolly Fisherman in Craster was great, which was the home of kippers. We walked off lunched afterwards towards Dunstanburgh Castle. This has been very much ‘home from home’ in Curlew Cottage. Thank you.
This was our first visit to Northumberland and we couldn’t have chose a more delightful location. A beautiful cottage which was really comfortable and had lots of thoughtful touches. We loved The Potted Lobster, our favourite restaurant. We also liked The Joiners Ars in Newton by the Sea.
Alnwick Castle and the gardens is a must see. There was also lots of great walks in the area too.
Back for our 3rd visit to Curlew Cottage. The weather was incredible and this was such a wonderful cottage. Thank you for the lovely welcome pack, we will definitely be back for a 4th visit. Thank you.
The owners have thought of everything for a wonderful stay in a delightful cottage, which made it a real home from home. We loved the location, as we love coming to Bamburgh and Northumberland, as well as the attraction of the cottage itself. It had everything we wanted for self-catering especially in the current pandemic. We will definitely book Curlew Cottage again. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Curlew Cottage was fantastic. The cottage was located in a quiet area but only a short walk from Bamburgh. It was decorated in a tasteful modern style and was immaculate. A lovely welcome basket was provided and there were detailed instructions regarding the surrounding places of interest. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it for anyone wishing to access the delights of Northumberland from a comfortable and welcoming base.
Lovely well maintained cottage in a superb location with great walks. Excellent service from Coquet Cottages with all the bookings needing to be changed over the last year. Thanks.
This property was perfect for us, it was tastefully decorated and very comfortable.
We stayed at Curlew Cottage which appealed to us as it had private space for the car and was close to Bamburgh. It has large airy bedrooms, and we thoroughly enjoyed the cake on arrival.
The cottage was beautifully presented, warm and welcoming. The addition of the welcome pack was a thoughtful touch.
We enjoyed the overall standard of the property!
This was a lovely cottage in a fabulous location. We thought it was very inviting and enjoyed the quality. It was spotlessly clean and comfortable.
Lovely property with great outdoor space. We didn’t need to worry about breakfast because of all the treats in the welcome basket. We loved the location and how close it was to the coast, it was well appointed and a perfect place to relax.
We liked the cleanliness, equipment provided and the general furnishings which made it feel home from home. We liked the private outdoor space and the welcome basket was a nice touch.

Very comfortable with a good shower. Nespresso machine was great – we brought a supply of pods with us. Good supply of books and there was a really nice cake and a bottle of wine. Also the bread was lovely!
Lovely cottage, homely, comfortable, clean and well equipped. It had all the basics and some nice little touches to get our holiday off to a good start.
This is a fabulous cottage. So cosy and comfortable and extremely well equipped. It has been decorated and furnished with a lot of thought and care. This was a cottage for 2 & near to Bamburgh, which is where we wanted to stay. Your website is one of the best. The 3D property images are fantastic in helping choice and suitability when booking. This cottage has been equipped with everything you could possibly want or need! The welcome basket was very welcome indeed. It had just the right items to provide a breakfast and some treats to start the holiday. Thankyou. We could not fault this cottage & therefore it is hard to say exactly what we liked best! It was tasteful decorated and extremely well furnished which is something we don’t want to compromise on when we go away. The heating worked well so it was always cosy and warm. This is the first time we have booked with Coquet Cottages and we have been very impressed with how we have been looked after from start to finish. From researching our holiday on the website, to receiving our joining instructions and a very nice courtesy call a week beforehand – everything has been clear and concise and very professional. We would happily book again and would definitely recommend your company. Thankyou.
Absolutely lovely cottage really well equipped. One of us loved the cake! Good location and quality.
What a wonderful cottage, everything was fantastic. Its just the best that we have ever stayed in, its that good I would like to buy it.
The cottage was beautiful, clean & comfortable. The décor was of an exceptional high standard. Clean, comfortable and good location.
Curlew cottage is situated at Glororum just outside Bamburgh. What a lovely place, a hidden little gem. This is the first time we have visited Northumberland and used Coquet Cottages and it most definitely won’t be the last . The cottage is beautifully decorated and has everything to make it home from home, couldn’t want anything more. The welcome basket had all you need all thoughtful little touches. Definitely recommend this delicious little cottage.
This is my second visit and can’t see any way of making it any better it is just a fabulous cottage in all ways. I shall return same time next year.
This is a lovely cottage and perfect for me on my own. Loved the facilities it provides. I have stayed in a number of Coquet Cottages properties with my family and just love this area. It has all one could need. Thanks again for a much needed good week and the welcome basket.
Lovely cottage, very comfortable. We loved the area, lots to see and do – a very beautiful part of the country – we will definitely be back.
This cottage was absolutely sublime, couldn’t fault one bit of it, so tastefully furnished and everything we could want. A real joy to stay in it. We stayed with you once before at Throstle cottagein Lesbury and that was just wonderful, and this break in Curlew Cottage was just as wonderful, an absolutely gorgeous cottage, what more can I say, it was just wow!! We will certainly be recommending the company to our friends, that’s for sure, I just wish there was a company in Scotland that did as high class quality accommodation as you do, and next time we are in the Northumberland area we wont hesitate but to book with Coquet Cottages, so thank you.
A cosy retreat for my wife and I. No animals no children, just peace and quiet very close to Bamburgh. Excellently positioned by the coast, with many locations within easy reach. Beautifully appointed and very welcoming. The bread was superb! The wine was superb! The cake was superb! Everything was simply superb!
Lovely property, nice and quiet location, also very handy for lots of attractions. EXTREMELY comfortable bed! Curlew Cottage was so appealing because we knew we wanted to do some cycling and so wanted to be somewhere that gave us opportunities to cycle to different attractions and locations. this was perfect for that. It was peaceful, comfortable and a home from home. can’t say more than that. It would have been nice to stay somewhere with good views, but the location was really good and it was so quiet even though we were right by the road.
Absolutely fabulous cottage for a romantic getaway! First class accommodation and a lovely welcome pack consisting of wine and cake.
A huge thanks to Coquet Cottages and to David & Nicola for the little things which say so much – the cake! The wine! The care!
Curlew cottage was a very nice home for us for these days. Lovely decorated, very bright & clean. Thanks for everything!
What a gorgeous cottage – fantastic location, beautifully clean & has everything you could possibly want. The garden has been great & despite the bad forecast we had a lovely time sitting in the sun with a glass of champagne.
What a fabulous cottage! we have had the most comfortable and relaxing weekend. Wonderful walks along beaches & delicious meals. Thank you for the little extras which made our stay extra special. We will definitely be back.
A perfect cottage in a great location!! We have had a fantastic time exploring the area. From a walk into the village to enjoy a couple of pints. To driving further along the coastline. We will definitely be recommending this cottage & area to friends & family
The accommodation, location and customer service has been first class and we will be looking to return.
We were very impressed with Curlew Cottage as it has been done up beautifully. What can I say … It’s so perfect and I give it 5 stars!
Excellent condition and very well presented. Lots of attention to detail.
It was very bright, private and quiet. The WiFi was excellent compared to other places we’ve stayed at. Also appreciated the way the owner contacted us a couple of days into the holiday to make sure it was all ok. We really enjoyed the holiday and wouldn’t hesitate to book the same accommodation again!
We thought the cottage was beautifully furnished and the bed was very comfortable.
Clean and modern in s peaceful location – easy access to Bamburgh. We are Nespresso coffee fans so the machine was a nice addition to have. Luckily we saw the machine in the photos and brought our own supplies with us. Excellent! We will make Coquet Cottages our first choice for our annual Northumberland stay. No complaints at all. Thank you.
