Our visitors’ book at Estuary 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 Estuary Cottage.
The kitchen was a perfect size and had great outside access. Oh, and bath towel size (weird, I know) were lovely, some cottages don’t give you the large bath towels, however this one did.
We really appreciated the texts with information and being given an easy point of contact. We enjoyed all of the welcome basket! The children loved the sweets. It was also great to have milk and butter.
Perfect for my friend and I and two border terriers, would definitely stay here again, just fabulous. We enjoyed the view, the décor, fab welcome basket, everything was great.
Another fantastic week at Estuary Cottage. Thank you for all you do to make sit such a super place to stay.
Thank you to Coquet Cottages for a beautifully well cleaned equipped cottage, with a great welcome hamper.
Thank you to Coquet Cottages, the property was beautifully clean and well equipped. It had a great welcome hamper.
First class! Cosy and spacious with a high quality welcome basket.
I’ve previously booked a holiday with Coquet Cottages, but had not stayed in Alnmouth before (its a pretty village). Estuary Cottage was clean, comfortable and we felt well provided for.

This was a well stocked cottage, with good sized rooms and well situated. We loved the scones in the welcome basket and thought it was nice and clean.

We enjoyed the view out of the kitchen, there were good showers and thought the kitchen was well laid out. We enjoyed the fresh coffee,beer, wine and chocolate.
An unreal cottage which was immaculate. We have booked it again for March 2021.

As always Alnmouth doesn’t disappoint, and what a comfortable cottage! We have been lucky with the weather enjoying lots of the coastal walks and gorgeous sunshine.

Had lovely weather for this time of year. It was great breathing in the sea air, while enjoying walks on the beach. Thank you for the welcome pack. We enjoyed our stay again, the cottage couldn’t be better.
Thank you we had a great stay. Cottage is lovely and what a location! The hamper groceries was much appreciated. The area and the golf is great. We will be back!
We enjoyed our weekend! We ate pizza in the Red Lion and the van at the Alnmouth. Beautiful beach walks and Amble had a market on the Sunday.
A lovely cottage for a three generation holiday. Wellies were essential for the footpath to the playground, but otherwise the rain didn’t stop us enjoying Alnmouth and the beach. We had a great trip to Cragside Anya (ages 2) loved the dog by the front door.

We enjoyed Alnmouth and the lovely walks. We appreciated the welcome pack too!
This was a lovely base for a family holiday close to the sandy beaches. There was off road parking and a lovely garden. The cottage was within walking distance from the beach. It was really helpful to get a call from the cleaners when they had finished the property, so we could get in earlier than our arrival time.
A Lovely cottage in a very good location. Private garden and parking within walking distance of the centre and beach.
Lovely cottage in a great location. It also has a private garden with parking. It is in walking distance to the town centre and the beach which was a real plus for us.
This was our second visit to this cottage and it was as expected. It was spotlessly clean and the welcome pack was so much appreciated . It is in a great spot for so many walks and had everything we expected and more. The bottled beer went down a treat with my hubby and son. The doggies loved their welcome basket – very thoughtful.

This little house is so deceptive. Looks like a simple semi from the outside but oh my goodness what a lovely home it is! Its a tardis of a property. The design and layout of the interior have been well though out and executed excellently. Location is perfect along with the little Love Lane footpath which runs by the estuary into the village. Everything from the welcome basket was so welcoming! I enjoyed all the different bits and bobs like the flowers and the scones. The scones were particularly lovely – so light and fluffy. Todd also loved his welcome basket too. Love the beds, bedding, towels and toiletries.
We have enjoyed a great few days here. Spent one day on the beach – flying kites, another walking to Warkworth and visiting the castle and another in Craster – walking to Dunstanburgh Castle and visiting the Fishing Boat Inn at Boulmer for lunch. Brilliant accommodation very well-equipped cottage and so clean! Thank you for the welcome pack – it’s much appreciated.
An excellent cottage. Very convenient for Alnmouth village. A very ‘welcome’ and well-chosen selection in the Hamper. Great location!
A lovely place to stay. A great location and great house. Perfect for our family holiday. Would love to come again. Thank you.
We have had a brilliant holiday at Estuary Cottage – it’s a fantastic location – views, beaches and pubs “The Red Lion” has excellent food but you much book when in busy times! “The Anglers Arms” a Longframlington is also worth a trip – amazing choices for lunch. Newton by the Sea’s beach was very good, large and dog friendly. We love this area – so many brilliant places – Cragside is a must! Thank you for all the lovely touches and the welcome package is probably the best ever!
A lovely weekend in Estuary Cottage. Location is superb and facilities made for a comfortable stay. The welcome treats for us and Duncan the dog were lovely. Thank you.
Thank you for allowing to use lovely cottage. We have had a pleasant stay made better by the gorgeous weather! The scones, bread etc and especially the Easter Egg were a welcome and unexpected treat. We will definitely recommend this cottage to our friends. Thank you.
We stayed in estuary cottage for a 50th birthday with 6 friends. The cottage was lovely and had everything we needed for our stay. Within easy walking distance into Alnmouth village and beach. Perfect. Coquet Cottages is the most professional holiday letting company we have used, the welcome phone call to make sure all was ok is a lovely touch, the staff are so friendly and professional. Welcome basket and flowers are a lovely touch.
Estuary Cottage was perfect, it suited our requirements as we were looking for a cottage that was dog friendly within a short walking distance to the beach. It was such a nice touch to have a welcome basket for the local bread which was so good we went out in search for more! We can’t wait to book our next stay. Thank you to the cottage owners, the housekeeper and Coquet Cottages.
Had a great stay – the cottage is very nice, and had everything we needed! Lovely beach and village. Lots of things to do and see, including many walks. Nice and warm! Very much enjoyed, thank you.
What a week! Fantastic weather and so much to see and do. We recommend Alnwick (lovely shops!) and Alnwick Gardens. Walks from the cottage are delightful as well. All in all, a beautiful part of the world!
Stayed in many holiday homes/cottages but never one so well equipped! The welcome pack was amazing. Lovely garden and very convenient rooms. Also great to get a phone call to check we had settled in. Coquet Cottages will definitely get my recommendation to friends and family, and of course a return visit to this beautiful area!
Love this house – so handy for all the beautiful places in the area and beyond, would recommend!
It had everything we wanted all rolled into one. The ‘cottage’ was very home from home and the owners had thought of everything to make our stay perfect. Two TV’s and bathrooms were a bonus and we spent most of the time in the big kitchen/diner. The views and walk along the estuary were perfect, and just the right proximity to such a lovely village. We’d definitely choose Estuary Cottage and Alnmouth again.
The beds were super comfortable, the spa bath amazing, the garden lovely, and the kitchen had everything you needed.
We have cottage holidays around 3 times a year and this was, without doubt, the best welcome pack we have received. Must make a special mention about the guest information pack which was very detailed. We loved it all & would be happy to stay again and/or recommend it to others.
Location was excellent, the size of the kitchen was superb for 3 couples and the decor inside the cottage was lovely,You could tell it was a gold standard cottage, probably very much in demand.
The cottage is lovely all the little touches juice, toiletries, games etc. Girls loved the all singing and dancing bath and the dog loved the chews. The grown-ups enjoyed the wine. The coach Inn does great food.
Lovely little touches left by owners to make you feel welcome e.g. toiletries, wine, fruit, juice and coffee. A very comfortable modern cottage refurbished, decorated and finished to a very high standard. Would always recommend Coquet Cottages. Julie always makes me feel like an old friend if I need to call and always gives the impression that nothing is too much bother. Well done guys and we wish the owners of Estuary Cottage all the best in their venture.
Lovely house to stay in. We are seasoned visitors to self catering cottages and this one was the best for extras and nice touches. Fabulous walk to the beach, nice not having to drive. The village has everything you need and the Sun Inn does brilliant food. I will be leaving five star feedback on Coquet Cottages website.
We had a lovely Christmas in a really nice cottage in a great location. Thank you.

It was more like a 5 star hotel!
Fantastic location – near the beach and within walking distance of shops, dog friendly pubs and restaurants. Beautifully appointed and in excellent condition; quality furniture, bedding, toiletries etc. Also accepting and welcoming two dogs, who loved their goody bag!
It was perfectly clean and the welcome pack was lovely! It looked just like the photos. It was very easy to book and we were very impressed with the standard of the property which was far better than home!
All of the cottage was lovely, we had no complaints. Lovely bathroom and en suite, kitchen, garden (we sat out). Lovely touches with the welcome pack and also the toiletries. Had a really good time.
I think the whole process and the stay in the cottage was wonderful. We had a marvellous holiday, many thanks.
Kitchen diner was a great place for family to gather whilst cooking etc. Each room was comfortable and clean. The welcome pack and bathroom goodies were a treat. The view from kitchen was glorious and location for beach and village great – we did not want to leave. If this property was on the market we would consider buying it. We’ll be back, especially if you can guarantee the same wonderful weather!
It was beautifully done. Loved the fact that even our dog was well catered for. Don’t think it could have been improved in any way.
We loved the 5* feel of the cottage, it was home from home.
My daughter and myself had a fabulous time.
Had a wonderful stay, beautiful house with everything you could need. Excellent location with lovely views of Estuary. Welcome pack much appreciated would definitely come again.
Beautiful house very homely and very central to all the gems of Northumberland. Will definitely return. Welcome pack was best ever. Many many thanks.
A lovely warm house and very welcoming when we arrived. Alnmouth beach as lovely as ever- fantastic to walk there down the estuary. Grandchildren enjoyed swimming at Alnwick and Grace Darling Museum at Bamburgh. Nice to stay in a house which welcomes dogs. Thanks for all the ‘treats’ and extras.
Lovely house and was very welcoming when we arrived. Appreciated the welcome packs and the house being lovely and warm on arrival. Didn’t want for anything and the house is beautifully decorated and in a fantastic location. The Italian in the centre of the village serves wonderful food as does the Jolly Fisherman at Craster. Ship Inn at Newton and Sun at Alnmouth are lovely. Alfie in particular enjoyed the beach walks!
Absolutely lovely house! We really enjoyed our weekend here. Spent lots of time in the gorgeous kitchen and having long walks. Pubs are very welcoming and dog friendly. The house is warm and very clean. We definitely return and be recommending you.
Had a fantastic time with friends in your cottage, what a lovely house you have, everything you can think of and a real home from home. We done some awe inspiring walks namely (Alnmouth to Craster) the scenery is stunning. Thanks for a lovely holiday.
It was so comfortable, clean and everything we could possibly need was there. It was especially good to arrive and fund fresh milk in the fridge and a selection of hot beverages so a cup of tea was soon available.
The convenience to the facilities of Alnmouth and the ability to walk straight out from the cottage to the beach. Given the unseasonably cold weather for Easter it was very welcoming to always come home to a warm full centrally heated cottage.
Overall an excellent property. The owners are to be congratulated on their eye for decor and comfort. If all your cottages are of this standard, we will definitely be back.
An excellent experience. The cottage is beautifully presented with extra little touches, like Snuggle Chum toys on the beds for the children and wine in the fridge! Despite Arctic temperatures outside, it was warm and cosy.
The views of the estuary were lovely. All furnishings and fittings were of a high standard and the cottage provided everything you could need for a very comfortable stay.
Overall, the cottage was extremely beautiful and comfortable and much nicer than the photographs on the website, and they were lovely to start with! The kitchen was the star of the show. The location was excellent as we loved walking from the front door down the estuary path to the beach and back through the village.
