Our visitors’ book at Farne View 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 Farne View.
This property was in a wonderful position with fabulous views. It had a beautiful spacious living area. It was comfortable and well equipped. There was an overall feeling of generosity and we felt very welcome.
This is an amazing Cottage in a fantastic location. The view from the balcony was great, it was very clean, cosy and welcoming. We have already booked for next year!
Everything was excellent. The views and proximity to the beach were great.
Excellent dog friendly property with enclosed garden and everything you might require for a home from home break. The location was good with lots to do on the doorstep. It is in a busy location so would say it is best to book restaurants ahead of time. cleanliness was excellent and the owner was extremely helpful. We were impressed with Coquet Cottages and their attention to detail, such as in providing a app link with all you need to know in advance. It had a lovely large enclosed garden making it really dog friendly. It was in a good location, spacious, and well presented with all home from home amenities. Coquet Cottages had thought of everything, as well as a pre visit phone call to make sure we had received all the info we needed.
We had a fabulous week at Farne View. It was in a good location, private, and had wonderful views. It was good to have a balcony and garden too. We liked how it was very dog friendly, everything was great.
This is a lovely home with wonderful views from all windows and great facilities. We enjoyed the proximity to Bamburgh and the lovely balcony.
This is a wonderful property which has a large enclosed garden, and have been impressed with the Coquet Cottages team.
Farne View is great as we loved the idea of being able to see Bamburgh Castle from the accommodation. We thoroughly enjoyed the biscuits and chocolate which were very generous. We thought the property was warm and cosy and were sad when it was time to leave.
We had a lovely stay at Farne View, the accommodation was excellent, and had everything that we needed during our stay. The cottage was spacious, inside and out. We enjoyed the views from the top floor living space.
We have enjoyed our stay at Farne View, the accommodation has been lovely and we would certainly recommend. Thank you for the useful tips regarding parking at the beach, that was very handy. Thank you also for the treats, scones, wine – very nice.

Stayed for a week at the beautiful Farne View with its quirky ‘upside down’ layout. Mesmerising views of Bamburgh Castle and the Farne Islands. The accommodation itself was spotless, with fresh flowers and a thoughtful welcome hamper which was well received. Everything that we needed for a week long stay was provided in the cottage. We had a lovely restful week; enjoyed lovely long walks from Bamburgh beach to Budle Bay, a trip to the Farne Islands and tasted the kippers at Craster.What a fantastic break away, you must visit this area and stay at Farne View… you will not be disappointed.
Amazing views from all sides of the property. Very clean, spacious and modern but also very comfortable. A superb holiday cottage located near to lots of lovely places to visit and near many amazing beaches.
Super property, fantastic views and very clean. Liked the welcome pack with the lemon cake, scones and delicious bread.
Local produce and all essentials for start of holiday. Also it was lovely to have a vase of fresh flowers. Warm, bright and modern with lovely views and secure garden. Also appreciated plenty of loo rolls and other incidentals rather than a token gesture.
Have had a super week in this very comfortable and well appointed cottage. Loved the views of the castle, sea and hills. Walks on Bamburgh Beach were brilliant for the dogs!
Had a lovely stay, thank you! Boy are we going to miss that balcony! 1st visit to Northumberland and really impressed! And accept dogs! In the middle of Summer! Luca loved his swims in the Sea.
Wonderful week here, loved the views! Cottage is welcoming, thanks for all the nice touches – we appreciated them. Great for walking and wildlife. We loved seeing the hare family coming in the garden every day! Will definitely book again. Thank you.
Lovely cottage, great goodies and to a very high standard. I booked over the phone with a very helpful lady. The Durham butter from the Welcome Basket was just right for the scones. Beautiful decor and local touches eg pictures, ornaments etc
A fantastic cottage in a great location. Everything we could possibly need, a warm welcome and the dogs loved the large secure garden. Dog Friendly and exceptionally high standards. Farne View is an excellent property and service including the checks by the company and owner that all was well which isn’t something I’ve experienced before. We liked the views and the details, in particular the selection of local books. We used the coastal walks book to plan our days out. We all enjoyed our stay, I will recommend Coquet Cottages to my friends and stay with you again.
Excellent cottage, welcoming and well equipped. Loved it being upside down for views!
We have just had a wonderful week at Farne View. The cottage is an upside down style to make the best of the fabulous views. It was very clean and welcoming and is dog friendly! There are lots of interesting places to visit nearby. We shall definitely go there again.
We have stayed in several cottages over the last few years and this is definitely the best! Luxurious feel, large enclosed garden which was great for our young children and dog to safely play in whilst my wife and I sat on the overlooking balcony enjoying the spectacular views. Only a mile or so from Bamburgh and the fantastic beach and close to Seahouses from where we went on a boat trip to the Farne Islands and Lindisfarne. A very professional booking experience with Coquet Cottages. Highly recommended!
Excellent location for exploring Northumberland with private parking. The cottage was immaculate on arrival. Having fresh milk, bread, butter etc is so useful and the fresh flowers are a lovely touch. The doggie welcome hamper is also such a lovely touch. This was our fifth booking with Coquet Cottages and the standard and service were excellent yet again. Thank you!
Farne View has been perfect in every way! The location was beautiful and had panoramic views. All in all a fantastic holiday home.
Coquet always delivers and Farne View is no exception. If the weather conspires against you, Farne View is the ideal place to admire Bamburgh from the windows. Perfect – Thank You.
Just returned from a week’s stay at this beautiful property and really didn’t want to leave. Beautifully decorated, furnished and equipped with everything needed for a home from home stay. Location fantastic with views of Bamburgh castle & the Farne Islands out to sea. The house has been designed with the living area upstairs with a balcony to take advantage of this wonderful view. Dog friendly with lovely enclosed garden. A few minutes drive to Bamburgh beach. We couldn’t have asked for more and have already booked to return next year. Coquet cottages – first class service.
We immediately felt relaxed and excited we had found the perfect holiday cottage. It couldn’t have been better. Perhaps the thing that made us most relaxed was the lovely bright, airy open plan design and although it seems daft, we love carpeted stairs and bedrooms, not all properties have them and I understand why, but it is so much cosier. The view of the castle was magical.
The cottage is exquisite and the owners have taken great care to create a luxury interior. The welcome hampers for us and our dog was a lovely touch. The views from inside the cottage and from the balcony towards Bamburgh Castle are wonderful. We all had a fabulous time and are looking forward to returning. The owner contacted us to see if we had settled in, which was lovely. He was friendly and helpful and gave us some advice on walks whilst we were there. Our short stay was perfection and the booking experience very easy, lovely staff at Coquet Cottages. Thank you for a wonderful all round experience.
We have had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at Farne cottage. The cottage is a real home from home with all the facilities you could need. It is extremely clean and the added attention to detail with complimentary wine (my favourite!) and toiletries was very thoughtful after our long journey – thank you.
A truly lovely part of the UK!! And Farne view added to its beauty. The cottage is so luxurious and homely, we all were so relaxed and comfortable from the minute we arrived. Fabulous views across the coast & good morning visits from the local hares.
All credit to the decor, attention to detail and welcoming feel of Farne View. It has been a pleasure and is a wrench to leave for more.
Lovely week in Northumberland, lots to do & see. Beautiful cottage, comfortable, well equipped and stunning views! Great weather added to our lovely stay.
Beautiful cottage, very well equipped, very clean, high standard, lovely location with fabulous views. Love the living area upstairs, great places to visit within half an hours drive and lovely walks from the cottage.
Excellent accommodation! Everything you could want in a holiday cottage… And the best welcome gifts ever!
Farne View has proved to be the perfect retreat for us – it’s wonderful!
Our second stay at Farne View. It was just as special, wonderfully cosy, comfortable and welcoming as the first stay.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Set in a peaceful location with stunning views all around, and a large safe garden, which is ideal for children and dogs.
This cottage exceeded our expectations. We have travelled far and wide with our dogs and Farne View outstrips them all.
Fabulous! We have stayed in this area many times, always with Coquet Cottages. This is our new favourite!
It took us a while to get used to the ‘upside down’ layout but it was well worth it for the amazing views.
The cottage was beautifully furnished and was like a home from home. The owners had equipped it with everything needed to really enjoy staying there. The views and location were stunning. The size of the garden was also perfect for our four year old little boy and Labrador Alfie.
We wanted to be near the beaches, the cottage was situated close to Bamburgh and made a good base for visiting North and South.
Homely feel, comfortable bed and spotlessly clean towels and bed linen.
The view of Bamburgh Castle and the Farne islands. Simply breath taking!
We loved the idea of being so close to the sea, and Northumberland coast.
Farne View – this is what you call the ‘wow’ factor. Stunning views, beautiful cottage with top quality fittings with everything you need for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.
Regular visitors to this area, this cottage is the best so far. For a short stay it was a long journey… but oh so worth it. We have been coming to Bamburgh for many years and Farne View is the best cottage we have stayed in. Excellent Cottage, fabulous views.
This is our 3rd visit to Northumberland and this cottage is the best yet. The scenery – the lovely fittings – I want to live here.
The views are tremendous and I have to say I’m somewhat reluctant to leave!
What a beautiful ‘home from home’.
The cottage has been such a joy to stay in, beautifully designed with comfort in mind.
We had a fantastic holiday here in Bamburgh and this amazing holiday home has made it very special.
What a wonderful cottage, so comfortable and everything you could want in a home away from home. Location and views gorgeous!
Fantastic time in a really nice cottage. Really impressed by the quality of the place and its location.
The views were amazing from the first floor living room, as well as the quality of the accommodation in every way, especially the super efficient heating and fabulous shower.! It was the most luxurious self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in!
It was gorgeous inside and out! Views were amazing and loved having the living space upstairs. Decor was lovely and everything you could think of provided and all good quality. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone. Location was fantastic and would love to go back at some point!
This was our 3rd Coquet Cottage holiday in less than 12 months so you must be getting it right!
We have now visited the Northumberland area on 7 occasions, each time self catering via you Coquet Cottages. Speaks volumes that we keep on coming back! Farne View was without doubt the best.
We will use you again and again, as the cottages you offer as well as the service provided by your staff is excellent. It was appreciated that we received a welcome telephone call from the owner of this cottage. A nice touch and the first time we have had this experience.
