Guest Feedback for Sea Gem
Our visitors’ book at Sea Gem 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 Sea Gem.
We loved it, this was a fantastic base. I loved the Chocolate with Lemon. Also my wife was mad for the Custard Creams and my Mother in Law loved the Gin. My Daughter was in sweet heaven, thank you for all the goodies.
Excellent well equipped house in a great location. I needed to add guests and could not do so via the web portal, I requested help from your customer service team who were brilliant!
Sea Gem is a lovely property with excellent facilities. Sea Gem is no doubt the best equipped holiday cottage we have stayed at.
This was a stunning house, it had everything you could need. It was in a great location central enough not to use car the whole stay! We will absolutely book again and would highly recommend it. Thank You it was all first class.
The property was fabulous – spacious, comfortable, lovely décor, and extremely well equipped. It’s hard to pick one single thing to highlight about the cottage because it was all so lovely.
Perfectly situated for exploring Amble with a great range of restaurants. A quick 30 min walk into Warkworth, which we also took advantage of. The property allowed easy access to the beaches in Amble & Warkworth and we barely used the car whilst we were there. I have recommended Coquet Cottages to my friends and have now booked.
Lovely stay, fabulous location with such attention to detail and comfort. Thankyou to the owner Sue who was so welcoming and the welcome hamper was greatly appreciated. We would love to return, thank you for everything.
Sea Gem has to be the nicest home we have ever stayed in, it is such a fabulous place. We loved Amble and the surrounding area including Warkworth, Craster, Embleton BAY, Holy Island and Alnwick (pronounced Annick). We would definitely recommend a sail around Coquet Island with Puffin Cruises, we were lucky enough to see Dolphins, Puffins, Seals, Razorbills and Various types of fish, even some large lions mane jellyfish. Alnwick Castle was a good day out and we enjoyed the adventure of golf there (both needed to be booked ahead). Booking ahead for restaurants is also advisable. We loved La Famiglia and the Taj Mahal, as well as the Old Boathouse. We ate Sunday lunch at the Wellwood Arms which was fine and tonight we will be at the Warkworth Hotel. Tuesday this week was the recycling bin, glass recycling can be found in the carpark at the Amble Marina. Thank you Sallyanne and Coquet Cottages for such a warm welcome and a high standard of accommodation.
It was absolutely immaculate. Everything about it is 5star from fixtures fittings to soft furnishings pots pans glasses etc
Sallyanne has incredible taste with a great eye for detail. The snug and the balconies were a bonus, but also loved the yellow sofas in the lounge area. Already recommended to a friend Cathy who is booking in September. You couldn’t have made booking any easier!
We’ve had an amazing time in your wonderful house and have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and hope to come back. The attention to detail was fabulous. We have been up and down the coast, walking on your wonderful beaches, visiting Seahouses, Warkworth, Alnwick and restaurants such as Sea and Soil, The Old Boat House and La Famigilia. Thank you so much!
We’ve had a fantastic few days in this beautiful house. We have explored the area and sampled some wonderful food. Thank you!
It was a great to such a beautiful area, after all the lock downs. We loved the wide open beaches, the Cheviot hills and Barter Books. The house was comfortable and a great to place to relax in. The hamper was also a surprise and we hope to come back to this beautiful property again with friends, to explore more of the area.
What a beautiful property! Perfect location for short break on the Northumberland coast as we managed to get our favourite spots at Alnmouth and Alnmouth. We enjoyed fish and chips at Amble marina and a lovely Sunday lunch at the Cook and Barker. The sun was shining in the garden so we enjoyed a glass of champagne and a Gin in the afternoon.
We recently booked a mini break with Coquet cottages and stayed in Sea Gem in Amble. Booking was so easy to do online. The house itself is in a great location, very quiet. Easy to walk into the village and to the harbour. The house is excellent, very high standard with attention to detail and all the cooking utensils an appliances you can imagine . We had a lovely hamper waiting for us on arrival.It contained the usual tea/coffee there were also some local delights for us to sample with Gin as an added bonus! We were very pleased with it all, everything was clean and tidy and we felt safe during these strange times we loved it so much we have booked to go again. The folder containing the information of the surrounding areas, restaurants, things to do etc was excellent and although we had no need to contact anyone as everything was perfect Sally-Anne Text us to say she was on hand had we needed anything. I can highly recommend this place, it was fabulous and am already looking forward to my next visit.
Beautiful house, everything was a high standard and clean with exceptional facilities. It had a open plan living space, high quality fixtures and fittings along with a snug! It was lovely to have contact if required with the owner and Coquet staff.

We have enjoyed our stay at Sea Gem, the house is fabulous and so well equipped, it is clean and of a high standard with added extras. The lovely hamper was an added bonus and we certainly enjoyed the Gin on the balcony! If you love fish and sea food then a trip to Jaspers is well worth it! We are certainly looking forward to our visit next year, thank you.
The house was lovely and very well equipped. The hamper was a lovely surprise welcoming us to our stay at Sea Gem. We had a good time visiting all attractions and it is central to other towns and the beautiful beaches along the coastal path. We will definitely recommend to family and friends, many thanks.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, our first trip to Northumberland! The house was spotlessly clean on our arrival and the “goodies” were much appreciated. We have no complaints as everything was 5 star. Thanks.
John & Anne September 2020
We enjoyed the size of the property, it was beautifully appointed and exceptionally clean. We liked the gin selection! We received a card from Sally-Anne with a bottle of champagne which was a lovely touch .
A very nice house, superbly equipped. In an excellent location for walking into Amble for drinks, meals or shopping and for exploring other areas of the Northumbrian coast. We’d definitely like to return in the not so distant future, many thanks.
Lovely new house with a modern design. It had lovely open spaced area’s for spending time together. If you needed some ‘me’ time the snug was perfect! We liked the fact that there was three bathrooms which made Sea Gem very appealing to us.

Due to Covid 19 we had to change over our holiday plans at short notice, but to excuse the pun, what a ‘Gem’ we found! Your home is welcoming and well equipped with everything you need for your stay to be home from home. We appreciated the hamper after a long journey. Amble is a beautiful place. Your home is excellent and a touch a luxury.

Wonderful house in a lovely location that was perfect for exploring Northumberland. The house is wonderfully decorated with character and feels homely. Very well equipped place for us all and wonderful garden that we utilised to play badminton in the good weather. Sallyanne was available for any questions and was very helpful. The hamper on arrival was excellent too! Amble is a lovely town and it’s only a short walk to the harbour, which has a great atmosphere. The Boat House on the harbour is a great place to eat. Thank you for having us in your wonderful home.
Lucy, Al, Sue & Sam, August 2020
The nicest house we have ever stayed in! The attention to detail is outstanding. Perfect location to explore the area by car or foot. Sallyanne was on hand if we needed anything and the hamper on arrival was a lovely surprise. Would recommend a meal out at the Hope & Anchor in Alnmouth (about 15 minutes by car). Thank you for allowing us to stay in your gorgeous home.
