Our visitors’ book at The Puffin’s Burrow 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 Puffin’s Burrow.
Thank you for letting us stay in your fantastic apartment. We have been very happy and comfortable and truly had the perfect family holiday.
We have thoroughly enjoyed out stay in this beautiful apartment, thank you.
What an amazing apartment. We have had an amazing apartment, thank you. We will most definitely be back.
We’ve had a wonderful week staying here in Puffins Burrow. The apartment was everything and more. It had such tasteful décor and we were able to immediately relax and feel at home. Having holidayed many times in the North, but never in Alnwick, it was nice to have some new things to see and do on the door step. We had a lovey sunny day in Alnwick Gardens with inch in the magical Treehouse restaurant. In Alnwick, we also enjoyed fish and chips at Carlo’s and returned to sample their delicious ice-creams We can also highly recommend SherKhan for Indian food and the quirky Origami café for milkshakes and cakes. On a rainy morning we had a great time in the Bailiffgate museum, as we went early in the morning and had the place to ourselves for a little while, which gave us a chance to explore. The beauty of the local beaches never cease to amaze us, with our favourites being Warkworth (free parking) and Embleton. The views at both of these beaches were spectacular. We enjoyed long walks, kite flying and paddling. A run up and down a few sand dunes also proved lots of fun. We adore Warkworth village with its castle, church, river, walks and Bertrams café.
This was a really great stay in a lovely apartment. The Puffins Burrow is ideally placed in Alnwick to be able to walk to the local eateries and attractions. We found the Treehouse an excellent place to eat and very different surroundings. The newly opened Adam and Eve was recommended to us and we found it excellent. This was our first stay in Northumberland and we thoroughly everything about it. Lovely coast and beaches within walking distance to Holy Island, which was amazing as well as the castles and other historic attractions. A perfect week.
We stayed at The Puffins Burrow in Alnwick for a week – it’s a well appointed, modern, clean, comfortable, well maintained apartment – ideal for exploring Alnwick and surrounding area. Great location for walking to Alnwick castle and gardens as well as restaurants and pubs for dinner. The owners were helpful and friendly and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Alnwick
The Puffin’s Burrow was very warm, clean and the owner’s made us feel very welcome. Coquet Cottages always kept us up to date with information about our holiday to Northumberland.
The property was warm, clean and welcoming. We liked the fact it was close to the town centre.
Th welcome basket was quite comprehensive and fitted well with our usual approach to self catering. We enjoyed all of it. It was modern and very much up to date.
The Puffin’s Burrow is great for touring the area, very central location! It is a lovely well equipped apartment. The welcome basket was a lovely touch and was greatly appreciated. We loved everything that was included!
A modern apartment located within easy walking distance of Alnwick Castle and Gardens. The town was also close and Morrison’s supermarket was very close by. It is only a short drive to the coast.
The property was very nicely decorated/finished and felt luxurious.
Excellent accommodation, well placed for local amenities and as a base for touring the area.
A wonderful, clean, welcoming and comfortable apartment. We could not have asked for more and felt immediately at home. Very tasteful décor with everything you could ask for, which made our holiday seem effortless. The dedicated parking space made such a difference as did the central location with all the facilities needed for a perfect family holiday. We truly had a brilliant stay and hope to return very soon. The wine was a real luxury treat and the flowers and toiletries were lovely. Above all, the little treat bags for our daughters were a such a lovely little touch that certainly put a smile on their faces. we have been really impressed with everything from the booking right through to the stay and follow up. Real attention to detail with a touch of class. We would highly recommend your company to our friends and family. Many thanks.
It was nice to have flowers on arrival. The accommodation was very stylish.
Very limited availability everywhere and this was in a good location and was nicely decorated and so we booked. Beds were first class, very comfortable. Location was excellent. Everything was nicely presented and good parking.
Lovely, clean property with stylish decoration and a great welcome pack.
