Guest Feedback for Lyndhurst

Our visitors’ book at Lyndhurst 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’ book in Lyndhurst.


We enjoyed the space in the property, it had a lovely garden and the views were great.

This was a nice large and comfortable property, which had everything we needed.

This is a lovely house, which is ideal for a multi generational holiday. It has a good size garden, ha easy access to beach and parking for several cars.

Comfortable accommodation. Great location within walking distance of the beach. We also enjoyed the fresh strawberries provided.

The champagne on arrival was a very nice thought. We loved the quality of the amenities provided.

Lovely property for a large party in a great location. Coquet Cottages were great, despite COVID interfering with our numbers we enjoyed our stay. Coquet Cottages kept us well informed throughout our booking & stay. It had a lovely garden too.

The kids loved the ice dispenser, and the large garden area for running around and playing ball games. The accommodation was very comfortable with ample room for everyone. The cottage was a good base for exploring the lovely Northumberland beaches and castles. The strawberries & cream, wine, biscuits and sweets went down well and were greatly appreciated by us all.

Outstanding accommodation. We needed a large property to sleep 10. Plus a location near the beach and near pretty Alnmouth, the boxes were all ticked with this property. The overall standard of soft furnishings and lighting were excellent. Furniture and beds very comfortable. The kitchen was exceptionally well equipped. The white company toiletries were a fab luxury touch. Being able to have our dog stay with us in your lovely house was wonderful. The bathrooms were very luxurious . The showers were strong and temperature control was great. I would like you to pass on to the housekeeping team our thanks and appreciation for the incredibly high standard of cleanliness in the property. Every inch of the house was spotlessly clean.
We will be booking with you again next year. Our third holiday with you. Thankyou Coquet Cottages.

We all had a great stay thank you and everything was provided We enjoyed the spaciousness and using all the lovely cooking utensils. We are looking forward to coming again!


Beautiful cottage that exceeded expectations. Spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. We didn’t want to leave! We are already planning another stay we enjoyed it so much. We loved the location and the luxury feel of cottage, which was warm and welcoming.

I liked the fresh flowers and the welcome basket which contained everything that we needed, we had a lovely stay! Thank you.

We stayed here for our 10th anniversary. We were originally disappointed that we couldn’t travel abroad to celebrate the occasion due to COVID but our stay here more than compensated. The garden is by far the stand out area, it’s very well maintained. We loved watching and listening to the birds each day. All other rooms are welcoming, spacious but manage to maintain their cosiness despite the size. From the moment we arrived at the property we felt welcomed and relaxed. We were able to check in earlier than expected and got a call off the owner to let us know a couple of days before so we could plan for it, Mike was very friendly and helpful. The welcome hamper covers all the essentials with some extras added too, great touch and I’ve never seen a cottage so well equipped! I thought the dog biscuits were a lovely touch and Lola certainly approved, she’s usually very fussy!! Alnmouth is just a really short walk away (only 10 minutes it looked much further on the map), the beaches and cafes are brilliant. We can’t wait to return and will definitely be staying at the same cottage. Thank you for an excellent and memorable stay.

Lovely house, very clean, and in a perfect location. We appreciated the small touches including the milk, wine and beer in fridge and various local produce which was lovely. We would definitely recommend this property to others who are looking to stay. We loved the size, quality and location of Lyndhurst.

We enjoyed this property because of its number of bedrooms and bathrooms. We liked that all the produce was local in the welcome hamper.

There was a dog friendly, child friendly enclosed garden. We loved the close proximity to the sea and the number of bathrooms the property has. There was a tractor biscuit in the welcome basket, which we thought was a lovely touch for our grandson. The bread was great along with the wine, this was much appreciated.

We had a great time as the house has a fantastic garden with lots of space. We received a text on the day of occupation to say the property was ready early, which was excellent, very considerate and much appreciated.

Good location, lovely house, warm and comfortable and very well equipped. A good number of bedrooms with bathrooms and I liked the large utility room for my 2 dogs. Well informed and I liked the additional phone calls for all the checks. Fresh flowers are nice touch.

Great property, Great weekend despite the stormy windy weather! Lovely house with plenty of room. Very well equipped and the welcome pack was thoughtful using local produce. Space, homely and all of it is just lovely.

A fabulous house. some people even got lost in it. Thank you so much for the gift pack. The strawberries alone were delicious. The young children loved the ice maker. It was welcoming and very inviting. The master bedroom was enormous and the children loved the bunk beds! We loved everything in the Welcome Hamper from the strawberries to the children’s sweets, the water and beer were a great touch. We liked the space, no one was on top of each other. My son loved the separate double room.

Perfect situation, very well presented and so well equipped that we wanted for nothing. We especially liked the champagne which had been very thoughtfully chilled for us. As we are golfers the situation on the golf course particularly appealed to us. The biscuits from the hamper were a favourite, lots of hot water and a warm , comfortable environment. We were completely satisfied. We very much appreciated your dog sitting service and the way that you sorted us out even at short notice. We know that ‘Charlie’ enjoyed his days spent with Miles.

We had a fantastic stay at Lyndhurst. The cottage is beautiful and spacious for the family of 10 plus dog who stayed there. The drinks and snacks left by the owner along with a card and birthday treats were a lovely touch. We will definitely be back.

Lyndhurst is a superb property for a family or group of friends. It is well placed overlooking Alnmouth Golf Course to the sea. The property is beautifully decorated and fully provided with towels, linen, crockery, glasses and has a well stocked utility room. The owners are very welcoming and helpful. There are five large comfortable bedrooms, three with en suites. We would be happy to recommend this property to anyone looking for a great break in Northumberland.

We loved this house, it had everything we could have possibly needed. The garden and views are wonderful and the beach just a few minutes walk away was stunning. The owner has left little extras for us on arrival, that were appreciated very much, so kind.

Everything was beautiful from the gorgeous furnishings to the stunning views. Couldn’t pick one thing.

We had the most lovely stay at Lyndhurst. It is very comfortable home which is really well equipped. Great location near the beach and the dogs loved that. Beds are so comfortable and absolutely everything had been thought about for comfort and convenience of guests. We would recommend Lyndhurst and the area to other people.

Lyndhurst was the perfect stay for myself and my family, it was beautifully furnished and had an amazing garden. The sea views were gorgeous and we loved the walks down to Foxton Beach which felt like our own private strip of golden sands as it was so peaceful. The welcome basket was hugely extensive and generous. We really liked the thought that had gone into it as it felt personalised to cater for our children, and even our dog! A special thanks to the owners and Coquet Cottages, we are really impressed by your company and the attention to detail from initially booking to arriving at Lyndhurst.

Lyndhust was fabulous! I’ve previously booked a holiday with Coquet Cottages and for this booking we required at least four bedrooms and four bathrooms which welcomed dogs. Where to start! The space, garden, location and the quality of the rooms was gorgeous. I couldn’t think of anything to improve our stay.

Great house, well equipped and it was warm and a perfect place to catch up and walk with good friends. We will be back.

This lovely, comfortable and well equipped house was the ideal setting for a 70th Birthday celebration. We were blessed with fine weather for our family get together.

Beautiful house in a fabulous location – where better to welcome in the New Year! This is our 8th year in this area and we’re always blown away by the scenery. Great beaches and great places to eat in Warkworth & Alnmouth. Thank you!

Wonderful stay in a perfect house, in a perfect area. Thank you!

Another fab stay at Lyndhurst, fantastic house. Many Thanks!

Excellent facilities with quality furniture and furnishings. Dining kitchen easily accommodates up to 10 people. Very spacious rooms with an extremely useful utility room for keeping shoes, coats, and other outdoor gear. Modern bathrooms and comfortable beds. Lovely gardens with rear views overlooking golf course and within 10 minutes walk to beach.

Absolutely wonderful – including the bottle of champagne left for me by Mike for my birthday and a wonderful voucher for Bertrams from Coquet Cottages . What a lovely surprise. I also loved the balcony in our bedroom, especially as the weather was perfect for sitting out.

We had a lovely week here for a 60th birthday. The house is beautiful, great location. This really is a lovely part of the world.

A wonderful location for my 40th birthday celebration with family & close friends. Even rainy days we enjoyed holed up in this beautiful house. Warm, welcome & comfortable – Thank you.

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful house. You should be so proud of it. We had an amazing time and will have memories forever.

Fantastic house in a beautiful location. Many thanks for the welcome pack. Our holiday was over far too soon.

Fantastic house, like a home from home… the weather was very good & even managed a BBQ. We watched the sun rise from the beach this morning which was very spectacular.

A wonderful setting for a very special birthday. Great to have space for our ever expanding family. Beautiful house, fantastic surroundings, interesting golf & lots of champagne. Thank you & we will be back

Everything was perfect, house was amazing and lovely little touches. Northumberland is beautiful – thanks.

Never did I think a holiday rental could be so beautiful. Everything was perfect & a fantastic time by all, dogs included. Beautiful location & stay.

Frequent visitors to Alnmouth and this is the best house so far. Great for our group of 9 & 2 dogs.

Nice big house for the gathering of the family. Enjoyed the garden as well, great for the children to play in.

House had everything you could need. We have enjoyed every minute of our stay. Golf course a big hit! Would love to come back again.

Had a lovely break, the house was brilliant – a great base for a celebratory week.

We have had a fantastic return visit to this beautiful house. We wish we could stay even longer. Luxurious and great location. The cousins have made lots of memories together.

A wonderful family house. We’ve all enjoyed ourselves, perfect location, wonderful beach and a lovely garden. Will definitely return.

Beautiful, well equipped house – we appreciated our welcome gift and flowers. Stunning beach, great location & many walks enjoyed.

Very generous space with quality of accommodation, fixtures, fittings etc. Spacious, well-kept garden. Overall, the impression gives was that we had come to stay with friends who had just stepped out of the house for a while. That isn’t easy to achieve in a holiday let!

Lyndhurst exceeded expectations, everything to a very high standard and all you could possibly need, happy to find ‘toy cupboard’ which Mollie enjoyed! Would definitely book again and recommend to family and friends.

Excellent property in a lovely part of the country with friendly locals and Coquet Cottage staff!

Coquet Cottages and Mike and Liz were fantastic. To tick all of our boxes was always going to be a tough call – it took some finding on the internet but Lyndhurst did just that. Thanks again to all concerned, I’m sure we will find another excuse of a celebration to return sometime.

Our holiday was great, we had a beautiful house to stay in, the owner when I had to contact him was very understanding and of course Coquet Cottages couldn’t do enough for us as always, it just makes our holidays in Northumberland so amazing!

Thank you for a wonderful holiday at your lovely home. Very well equipped with lots of extras. Everything A1. We were here for our daughter’s graduation at Durham and to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary with family – fab time had by all, enhanced by the beautiful area and your house. Thanks for the cards, flowers, cake and wine. Good luck Mike and Liz, you deserve much success.

Wow! It doesn’t get any better than this.

Wonderful house! Beautiful beaches. Weather excellent.

Thank you very much – had a wonderful family stay and a great way to spend a 65th birthday.

We had a wonderful stay and loved going down to the beach every evening.

What a brilliant holiday – great house, magnificent beaches and scenery and amazing weather. Who’d have thought Northumberland could be so warm (only wore coats once the whole week!).

A wonderful house and location – thank you! We all enjoyed visits to Alnwick, Alnmouth and Warkworth. Hope it’s not too long before we can return to Lyndhurst and sunny Northumberland!

Wonderful house, can’t wait to come back. Thank you.

Great 80th birthday celebrations for Mum. Fabulous house in our favourite location. Thanks for flexibility in arrangements and welcome chews for Sophie dog. Hope to come back.

The cottage was fantastic, spacious, clean and welcoming. It was exactly as presented on your website with all the facilities as shown, no ‘trick’ photography to try and make spaces look bigger than they actually were. Our 13 yr old daughter particularly liked having her own ‘teenage loft’; her younger brothers are still at a loss to know where she slept! The location was ideal, being close to beaches and also Alnwick. We found Coquet Cottages very helpful and happy to answer any queries.

As an extended family we have stayed in many cottages, houses and villas here and abroad over the years and we all agreed that this accommodation and stay has been one of our favourites. The guided tour from the owner and all the thoughtful extras, flowers, wine ,beer, chocolates etc were especially appreciated. Thank you.

The luxury, its location and the fact that dogs are welcomed. Nothing was too much trouble for Mike, extremely welcoming, you felt as if he really wanted you to enjoy your holiday and nothing was too much trouble for him-a very different experience from past rentals where the owner remains anonymous and apparently disinterested in the quality of your stay.

Such a unique and welcome concept to market luxury accommodation for dog lovers. Well done!

Everything was perfect. Possibly one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. The house was wonderful in an amazing location. Booking through Coquet Cottages was very straightforward and Julie was so helpful.

You can’t improve on perfection. Maybe a little bit of sunshine if you can arrange it.

We have simply had a wonderful holiday at Lyndhurst and could not fault anything. We were very sad to leave but thank everyone involved for making our holiday such a success.

The cottage is finished to a very high standard and you feel totally relaxed and at home from the minute you walk in the door.

The whole holiday was just so successful, lots of attention paid to detail – particularly like the doggy welcome pack!!

Fabulous house. We’ll definitely use Coquet Cottages in the future. So few holiday rental companies can guarantee a clean house (we’ve scrubbed many on arrival!) where everything works.
