Guest Feedback for No.1 Duke Street

Our visitors’ book at No.1 Duke Street 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 No.1 Duke Street.

Excellent in all matters. Very comfortable. High quality of furnishings. There was a good quality welcome pack provided and a well stocked kitchen with lots of equipment.

Spotlessly clean, everything had been thought of, it was so well equipped. No. 1 Duke Street had beautiful interiors and the property was in the most perfect location for the town’s facilities.

This is a beautiful holiday home with everything you need. It is in a great location, beautifully decorated. The welcome pack was a lovely surprise. This was our honeymoon and we received a bottle of champagne too, fabulous.

It was a very comfortable property. We wanted to stay in Alnwick town so was ideal.

I am in love with this property! It provided everything a family needed. The ambience the owners have created was of simplicity, calm and comfort. I truly do not want to leave.

We definitely made the right choice with No.1 Duke Street. It is truly wonderful, very cosy and beautifully furnished. Sherry and her family have thought of everything that is needed to make our holiday memorable and will certainly come back again to Alnwick. The Hamper was most welcome thank you, and the flowers were very thoughtful.

The photos caught my eye as I loved the design! But they didn’t do it justice as the house was simply stunning and the decor was amazing. Loved the welcome pack as there was lots in it! A lemon cake, bread and scones as well as juice, milk and butter. We had specified that we didn’t drink so we received some elderflower cordial and sparkling water instead.

We wanted to be based in Alnwick and this cottage was the most appealing because of its position, range of features and interior decor. We loved the spaciousness and the range of facilities and equipment.

Really enjoyed our stay at this cottage, it was furnished comfortably and had a great bathroom.

We booked No 1 Duke Street in Alnwick through Coquet Cottages – everything was outstanding – the house itself – but also the service from Coquet Cottages. There are so many little extra touches in terms of the booking and communication processes – such as understanding the make up of the visiting party so that the welcome basket is tailored to the guests. We had the same kind of excellent welcome from the house owner too. Planning to go back to Northumberland in Spring and Coquet Cottages will be first port of call.

Thank you Sherry for letting us share your lovely home. We have had a wonderful week with some fantastic warm sunshine as a bonus. Super welcome pack (and a lovely surprise!). Many thanks again for a fabulous holiday.

Fabulous house. Very comfortable & well equipped. Thoroughly enjoyable week and we are leaving the house relaxed. Thanks for the superb welcome pack – much appreciated.

Design and layout fabulous so bright and welcoming. Easy access to all attractions. Loved the books and games. Thank you for organising birthday cake and balloons too – excellent stress free service. Can’t wait to return.

The interior design was beautiful, good location in Alnwick. The service and quality of accommodation have exceeded any other company I’ve booked with in the past.

We loved the location of the cottage, that is was within walking distance of the restaurants and amenities of Alnwick and the owner was lovely. Thank you for the restaurant recommendation, The Old Boat House at Amble was very good, we enjoyed our meal. High quality cottages, I will recommend you to friends, thank you.

Beautiful decor, great facilities and very comfortable. Just like being at home.

This house is full of style and we loved the interesting colours and design. It was lovely, comfortable and well equipped. When we first got there we both said “wow” and that we’d definitely be going back.

We were very impressed with this cottage and would use Coquet Cottages as our first choice in Northumberland. I have recommended the cottage and the company to friends following our visit.

The welcome pack was very generous… not to mention tasty!

It is a really lovely cottage and we were delighted to be staying there, I wish all other cottage companies had such good standards, the very generous welcome back was a great touch.

Thank you Coquet Cottages for your excellent service, all the cottages we have stayed at so far have been excellent.

This cottage had the ‘WOW’ factor! It was impeccably clean and beautifully designed – our friends were very impressed (they took loads of photos ! We liked its welcoming feel and high quality (luxurious) and ‘tardis-like’ nature. All beautifully and thoughtfully kitted out – everything had been thought of to make it a relaxing break and the gift pack was greatly appreciated and thoughtful. You’ve ‘set the bar’ for standards in truly luxurious holiday accommodation.

Extremely helpful staff in your office. Thank you Dale for the restaurant recommendation (The Boat House at Amble) we enjoyed our meal. High quality cottages. I will definitely recommend you to friends, thank you.

Our second stay at this fabulous house! Everything just as perfect as it was two years ago. Fresh sea air, good food, wine and a wonderful house – what more could you ask for – hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

This is our fourth time here but first time in this cottage – it’s gorgeous! We settled in immediately and have had another wonderful break from our hectic everyday life. There’s so much to do in this area and this is the perfect base to come back to and chill out. Thanks again!

Lovely cottage, well appointed. The bedrooms were great as were the bathrooms – Charlie our son took to reading on the nice warm bathroom floor. The kitchen dinner was very well appointed too.

Sad to say we only stayed a few days with the rest of our group of friends but a wonderful place and fabulous scenery around here, must come back again in spring time.

Excellent holiday – lovely place and property to meet up with friends. Would love to come back sometime.

The house is amazing, it’s huge and very spacious. We loved the welcome pack, it was a lovely touch. Everything was very clean and there were plenty of board games, DVDs and books to keep us occupied for hours. The stay was very enjoyable for all; we’d definitely come back again another time.

Lovely cottage, everything very clean and well decorated. Tasty welcome package too.

Excellent week with lots to see and do. Cottage fantastic. One or two nice evening strolls out from the cottage too.

Our 2nd visit to Northumbria and certainly not our last! Lovely cottage & lovely thoughtful touches – thank you for the welcome basket. Loved your animal neighbours too.

A gorgeous, cosy, well equipped cottage. Welcome basket was a lovely thought. Sad we were only here for a weekend.

No 1 Duke Street absolutely exceeded our expectations, even though the explanations and photographs had already made us feel comfortable that it was right for us. Thank you to all, from Sherry and her skill and good taste, Jeanette and the cleaning team who did an exemplary job, and to Coquet for making the process of selection and booking, and back ground information of the area comprehensive and easy to navigate. A job very well done by all!

It was excellent and I was very impressed! I think it is the best equipped cottage I have stayed in.

The quality of the cottage was amazing – the style and interior design was beautiful and everything was clean and incredibly well looked after! It felt luxurious with everything you would need for a home from home.
