Guest Feedback for Puffin View House

Our visitors’ book at Puffin View House 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 Puffin View House.

Puffin View House is a new build with lovely sea views and dog friendly! The location is great and the cleanliness was of a high standard. The bread and cake included in the welcome basket was our favourite!

It was truly excellent. Everything about the property was of a high standard and very comfortable. The views from the front were fabulous – particularly the sunrises. And the location was also very good. It was all of an extremely high standard and spec.

A lovely house with everything you could possibly need. It was in a perfect location and had a great layout for a family of five plus our large dog. The welcome basket was a really lovely touch and was just what was needed after a long journey- excellent coffee! Really comfortable, excellent decoration, plenty of space and had everything needed for a week away from home. Compliments to housekeeping who were very friendly when my husband and son arrived drenched on their bikes after a very long day cycling.

Puffin View House was excellent. The property provided everything we needed for our holiday. We have stayed in other properties in the area but this one provided excellent views as well as being comfortable.

We were delighted with the cottage, it was so well equipped and very comfortable, as well as being well located. The owners have thought of everything and were approachable too. We would give the place top marks. It had the space we needed, was beautifully decorated and was convenient for shops, close to restaurants and cafes and the beach. The cottage was so well equipped, we were really impressed.

Beautiful, comfortable house, with lovely furnishings. Great to have games and books for rainy days. It had a lovely garden for the children to play in. Wonderful views from the bedrooms and lounge. It was great to have two lounge areas. Everything had been considered in the welcome basket. It was nice to have fresh flowers and cake too. The property was very well equipped, with good quality items in every room.

What a wonderful place to come for a holiday after the last 15 months. As many have said before us, this is a beautiful place and so well decorated. The welcome basket was also so well stocked with lots of delicious treats. We would recommend Sea and Soil in Amble and the Potted Lobster in Bamburgh for food. Fish and Chips were delicious at The Fish Shack, The Old Boat House. We walked the coastal path from Craster to Dunstanburgh and went to The Jolly Fisherman for dinner. Cragside House was fabulous, along with Embleton Bay for a beach day, we even went in the water for a swim. We thoroughly enjoyed Billy Shields for the Farne Island boat trip.

The are enough beautiful beaches here at hand to satisfy eve the most hard to please. The weather was very changeable but this house kept us warm and cosy. We sampled take away food from several restaurants and none were disappointing. We would love to come back again.

We had a wonderful holiday in your lovely well equipped house. The weather stayed fine so we enjoyed the nearby beaches , a walk by the river at Felton and a boat trip to the Fane Islands. Thank you Sam and James.

A wonderful stay in a wonderful house. We loved it. Perfect as always! Thank you so much.

We have a lot of experience of renting properties with our two children and grandchildren for holidays around the country and abroad and your house compares very well. Position is absolutely brilliant, facilities and equipment exceptional particularly a/v (all our family have Sonos). The bedrooms are very well appointed. The welcome pack and instructions were of a high standard. Nice that you welcomed our daughter‘s dogs so warmly. We have not previously explored Amble or much of the surrounding area and we quickly realised we have been missing a great deal. We will be back!

We had a really lovely holiday. Puffin View House was a really great place to stay – so comfortable, welcoming, beautifully furnished and well-equipped. We loved early morning walks along the beaches followed by coffee on the fab balcony with its stunning view of the sea. We were lucky with the weather and packed in all our favourite Northumberland walks (Hepburn Woods & Ros Castle, the Cheviot, Embleton to Craster and back) plus found some new walks. Cake at Bertram’s in Warkworth is always a treat and we loved Spurelli’s ice creams and fish and chips from just up the road (best batter ever!). Thank you – would definitely recommend Puffin House and would stay again for sure!

we absolute love the house- it’s fantastic. I would buy it if I could. Thank you for making it so special. James, we had an amazing time in your lovely house. I did pop into Coquet cottages to tell them how fab it was. Hoping we can come up in the next few months and would definitely want to book Puffin View. So sad to leave it this morning. Take care and good luck with the sleepless nights, I remember those new born days well. Best wishes.


James, thank you so much, we would definitely love to revisit Puffin View House in the future.We have stayed in 6 properties in Amble over the last 4 years, from old renovated cottages to new apartments overlooking the marina, and can honestly say that this our favourite. The house is so well presented and has everything that any holidaymaker could possibly need, home from home (with exceptional views). We cannot think of anything additional to improve on what you have, every little detail has been taken care of, again, thank you for letting us stay.


We are having a good time thank you. Perfect space when you have teenagers they have commandeered the middle floor though so I’m going to have to launch a takeover bid in time for Strictly tonight. Thanks again. Helen


It’s been a great start to our stay. The house is stunning and a credit to all the work you have done to get it ready for us!


We had a fantastic time from start to finish. I do have feedback on the house yes…it is amazing. It had absolutely everything we needed. As people who love to cook, we always have to go buy something but not this time! You have thought of everything. Thank you so much for sharing your home. I do hope the new regulations don’t affect your future bookings not sure if there were meant to multiple families staying together. We are on the way home now. We will certainly be back!

Your home is beautiful and has everything we need and more. We had a great time.
It was well appointed and kitted out. The sofas and curtains are top quality, it had very comfortable beds and bedding with lovely ensuite’s. There was a great outdoor garden and furniture.
We enjoyed the location, two parking spaces and the welcome pack!

Your home is beautiful! You have a lovely house James, thank you and we will be back.


The house is gorgeous and the view is amazing. We had a great stay. There is nothing I could think of that we needed that you haven’t supplied with the house. It’s a great house and I can see why you bought it! Wish we had booked for 2 weeks. We will definitely be back. We added some tips in the guest book. We went fishing yesterday with a local guy called Kevin and he said I could leave his info too in case future guests fancied a fishing trip. The wee selection of books for kids was a lovely touch and Luisa loved the ones about puffins. Looking forward to coming back. Good luck with the house, although I am sure you won’t need it.


A fantastic, luxury property, one of your best i would say. The location was excellent and the standard of the property was fantastic, it was wonderful.

The location of this cottage was perfect, sea views and great dog walks from the doorstep as well as the town nearby for food and drinks on an evening. The cottage itself was also clearly a very high standard, with lots of bathrooms and plenty of space along with a great garden. It had all the essentials and lots of treats. We also appreciated the welcome basket provided for the dog! The decor and quality of finish was exceptional. The owners had clearly spent a lot of time and money getting it just right and it really came across. The location and the cottage was just perfect.

We were looking for somewhere to stay after having our holidays cancelled due to lockdown. I received an email for this property introducing it and decided to book, as it looked perfect for us. we have stayed in many cottages, but this is by far the best ever. The equipment was all of the highest quality. James and Sam the owners have thought of everything. As a couple who love to cook we always have to go and buy at least one utensil. Not this time. Everything was there!

We had a super week. Weather wasn’t great but it didn’t stop us exploring the lovely area. The house was brand new and extremely well kitted out. The owner called us on day one to check all was well. They had thought of everything. A real home from home. We enjoyed having two living areas. We were two families with three teens and young adults. It meant we could enjoy chatting while they watched a film. Neither disturbing one another. The bathrooms, bedding and towels were all high end.

Helen August 2020

Beautifully appointed house for a family and our small dog set in a perfect location. James, the owner could not have been more helpful. We would definitely stay again! Really lovely property, beautifully decorated and equipped so well. What’s not to like! We were a bigger group, so Puffin View House was ideal for us.
