Guest Feedback for The Granary

Our visitors’ book at The Granary 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 The Granary.

The Granary is in a lovely quiet area which is very handy for touring Northumberland. The cottage is clean, spacious, modern and well laid out. Coquet Cottages customer service throughout was excellent. I liked the phone call early next day after arrival checking if all is ok. Their communication throughout was first class!

We have stayed at this cottage before and really like it. This Cottage is very relaxing and in a quiet area but not too far away from shops, pubs, beaches etc. The property is well decorated, warm and very well equipped, it is almost like staying in someone’s home. The bread provided was also delicious.

This was a gorgeous, comfortable and spacious home, in a quiet and beautiful setting. It was in easy reach of the coast and inland sites. We had several wonderful days out, and it was lovely to get back to The Granary, to cook and eat in relaxed surroundings. It had lovely décor, the view from the seating area was lovely, especially the sunsets.

Beautiful accommodation with all the comforts we needed and more! Peaceful, scenic and in an excellent location for our favourite sightseeing destinations. Delicious scones! Very generous and comprehensive welcome basket on our arrival.

Stunning property in great location. We enjoyed all the local produce provided on arrival.

We came back this year because we loved it last year and it was just wonderful. Beautiful touches, like the hamper, the gorgeous hand soaps and shower gel in the bathrooms. We love the décor, the comfort and cleanliness. Beds and bedding are lovely and we all slept really well. The location is stunning. We will miss the evenings in the garden, sitting under the swallows whizzing around and watching the sunset. A magical place, thank you for your care and attention to detail. The location is quiet but still near enough to the beach for us. The countryside is lovely for running, cycling and walking. The chilli mango chutney was AMAZING!

Super property! We loved it all.

Delightful house offering very comfortable accommodation. It was pet friendly, in a rural location, and was very attractive from the photos.

This is a beautiful property. Everything had been thought of to make our stay comfortable. Very quiet but convenient area which was just what we wanted. The property appealed to us as it was modern, and was a single storey barn conversion. We had 3 people over eighty in our party. We liked the layout and huge kitchen and lounge.

Fabulous place, very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Excellent location too. It was also helpful to have plenty of information sent by email a few days before our holiday. Very good layout, spacious and comfortable.

This was the second coquet cottage I have stayed at and just like last time we were very impressed with the property. Everyone was very accommodating from the housekeeper to staff on the telephone. Nothing was too much trouble. This is the fist holiday my mum has been on for a very long time, due to being a long time carer for my father and Covid. It was so nice for her to be comfortable, in a really nice place. Thank you for all the extra measures put in place to make us all feel safe.

It was a wonderful property in a great location. We enjoyed the large living space and having 4 bedrooms as we are a family of 5 with big teenagers. The wonderful view was also a bonus. The Coquet staff have been wonderful through this covid year ( this holiday was booked originally for 2020) and been very flexible and always cheerful despite the challenges. Everything was brilliant, we’ve been coming to Northumberland for 5 years with Coquet and fully intend to come back again next year. Thank you!

The property was in a rural setting and perfect for multi- generational stays. We were very impressed with the service from all the staff at Coquet cottages and the owner for her help.

What an amazing cottage, so peaceful, warm and cosy. We have had the most amazing time, so much space for the boys to run and there are fantastic dog walks. We walked from Craster to Low Newton, The Ship Inn was great, full of atmosphere and Eleanor’s Byre is a treasure trove! We will definitely be back, see you very soon.

Georgina & Family March 2020

Our first holiday in Northumberland with our girls and what a perfect cottage The Granary is. It is warm and welcoming and very well equipped throughout. There are beautiful walks along the beaches and we were very lucky with the weather, sunny blue skies, a bit chilly but then back to a lovely cosy fire. It is a wonderful cottage, thank you very much.

Cottage was warm which always helps, nice wine and biscuits. Felt homely and little things that made life easy – foil, cling film. Condiments and herbs. Practical items – cleaning materials, torch etc fire and the supply of logs especially on a cold week. We were very pleased with the cottage – it felt like a home and not a rental! Location was quiet with easy access to both the beaches and inland. The layout worked perfectly for us with two dogs.- the garden was enough to let them out but clean so not a major job to sort them when they came back in.

We had a lovely stay at The Granary, A warm, cosy and welcoming cottage, great kitchen, log fire to chill out. The owners have thought of everything. We love the location of the cottage. Superb views and ideally located to visit the local attractions. Your dog and I particularly enjoyed the morning walks. We went to Bamburgh, Sea houses. Alnwick, Alnmouth, Cragside and Holy Island. The Granary is an relaxed place to explore the area. We will definitely come again!

A beautiful cottage and a lovely Christmas break! Such a warm and cosy place that none of us wanted to leave. Many thanks!
