Guest Feedback for The Quarterdeck

Our visitors’ book at The Quarterdeck 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 Quarterdeck.

Holiday cottage in Amble


Excellent accommodation. Lovely and quite but with everything you need within walking distance. Having a view made a difference to us as we don’t have one at home. Everything in the welcome basket was a little treat. It Was really comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay at the property and would book again if we visit the area.

We would definitely book this property again! It had modern furnishing, a kingsize bed and marina views. It was in the perfect location for access to restaurants and coastal walks without using car.

Fabulous home from home, comfortable with excellent views. Thanks for yet another great stay.

This is a beautiful apartment in a superb location. This holiday was postponed from last year and every time we have needed to communicate with Coquet Cottages, the staff were extremely helpful and efficient. The apartment was exactly as we had hoped. The view was what we loved the most about the property!

Great holiday thanks! Clean and bright – great welcome basket. Love the view. Will be booking for a fourth year in one if these apartments. We enjoyed the view, and that it was all on one floor for an elderly relative, the en suite was also perfect for her. We loved your welcome basket and the general feel of the quality. This property is always clean, and always has comfy beds as we have stayed before and was our third time at one of these apartments.

A fabulous apartment with amazing views. Thanks to all the staff who were extremely helpful and to Fiona for organising a voucher for us.

This apartment felt very comfortable and the view from the windows were great. The ease of access for elderly guests was most appealing. We liked the local produce, especially appreciated the ground coffee sample pack.

This was perfect for a short break in relation to the location and the facilities it offered. It was comfortable, warm and of course had that amazing view. We did not have to drive far to access things.

We had a fab weekend and would definitely stay at The Quarterdeck again. Thank you for the welcome basket. We liked the mini shortbread biscuits, they were delicious and the welcome bottle of wine for our first night was appreciated.

Our weekend trip to The Quarterdeck was a very late decision and as we sit here on a Sunday night soaking up the last rays of sunshine we are delighted that we made the decision to book. The Quarterdeck really is a fab apartment with an amazing view. We loved sitting early in the morning with our coffee watching the fishing boats leave and it really is the perfect place to enjoy an evening glass of wine.

The Grant Family September 2020

Our third visit to The Quarterdeck which has become a very special place for our family. The weather has been poor but it doesn’t matter when you are in such a comfortable place with wonderful views. We visited Holy Island which is as beautiful in the rain as it is in the sunshine. Always sorry to leave this place but no doubt we will be back.

The Pearson Family August 2020

We received a special bottle of champagne for our anniversary. The view was lovely, and felt very comfortable. Great location!

We found this a fabulous apartment with wonderful views of the Coquet River.The apartment has everything you need and you have the option of using the stairs to exit the apartment building or the lift. The apartment was quiet and spotless. A big advantage of this property is that the managing agents, Coquet Cottages , have the most reliable, efficient and helpful staff if you need any advice re the booking. I found the staff whom I spoke to on the phone warm, pleasant and very responsive. This would definitely make me use Coquet Cottages again.Thank you for the excellent service.

Come on the recommendation of my son and daughter in law. The apartment even exceeded their expectations. A quiet location in every respect. We will be back in time.

Apartment still very lovely. Had a great time will be back again and hopefully all the building work will be finished. Great place, great restaurants, Ice Cream as good as last years.

Lovely apartment and brilliant views over the harbour. Plenty of places to eat here and no need to cook! We even had great weather so could sit on the balcony.

What a fabulous property and the perfect base for exploring this wonderful county. The view is amazing and we spent ages watching the little boats coming and going. We loved meals at Japsers and The Old Boat House. Holy Island was very special..The kippers at Craster are a must have, delicious. Cragside was outstanding. We’ve had a wonderful holiday, thank you for sharing your apartment with us. Best wishes.

Our second visit this year which has been as wonderful as the first visit. Such a lovely place to relax and watch the ever changing vista, I’m sure we will be back again soon.

We have enjoyed a wonderful week – Northumberland never ever disappoints.

So good I’ve lost track of the date! Fabulous in every way.

Our third visit to Amble in the last two years and it never disappoints. We go home feeling refreshed and relaxed. The views from the apartment are stunning, ever changing watching the tides. Boats and birds. Never fails to amaze. Very comfortable apartment, lovely welcome hamper and flowers. Thank you. So cosy. One of the best things for us is to leave the car parked up and enjoy the local restaurants and walks along the pier, the sea has been amazing to walk on this visit. Old Boathouse and Japser’s are our favourites, this week has gone far too quickly but we are going home knowing we will be back again for two weeks in May and looking forward to coming back to The Quarterdeck. Thank you.

A return visit to this wonderful accommodation – just love the ‘wow’ factor everything you look out of the window. Revisited lots of favourite places and walked miles on the glorious beaches. Hauxley reserve is always a must but no red squirrels this time. Wonderful food – Jaspers Bistro is definitely the jewel in Amble’s crown these days. Gets very busy so you need to book but will be rewarded with some of the freshest and best cooked seafood in the area. Thanks for the welcome hamper and very high standard of housekeeping. Much appreciated. We will be back soon hopefully.

Excellent accommodation and very impressive communication from the Coquet Cottage staff – friendly and responsive to the enquiries I made by telephone leading up to the trip. I booked by phone, excellent service and would book by phone again. A friendly, human contact adds to the sense that someone is looking out for you to make sure your holiday is great and will be there to answer any questions.

Another wonderful stay in this beautiful property. The views certainly have the Wow factor whatever the season. It fills our needs perfectly and we look forward to our return. Thank you Coquet Cottages. Love everything, we will be back! All your properties are maintained to a very high standard but the ever changing vista from the picture windows Is mesmerising. There’s many high quality restaurants within walking distance and it’s a perfect base for us.

The property exceeded our expectations. Beautifully presented & warm which was important for my father who had health issues. As we were bringing our elderly parents who both have mobility issues this property met their needs. Parking outside the door, a lift to access the apartment, the accommodation was all on one level and it had a walk in shower. The sensitive use of space to make the most of the wonderful views; the quality & cleanliness of furniture & furnishings; the closeness to local amenities; parking; warmth & comfort; provision of beautiful crockery & kitchen utensils & equipment.

Amble- the perfect location for peace and quiet and not forgetting the view from the quarterdeck overlooking the marina which is so peaceful, sitting in warm luxury in a perfect location not far away from those places which there is plenty to do should you feel the need to seek entertainment from the likes of Alnwick, Seahouses and the other picture perfect places nearby. Things for the elderly to the young.
Nice spacious apartment to relax in – what more could you need!

What an amazing place! Beautiful apartment with everything you could need. As for those views.. being in the chair with a glass of wine looking out at the marina will be a lasting memory.
What a special place, made all the more memorable by the fact that WE GOT ENGAGED! Right here in the apartment, with our 2 beautiful boys playing a part in the proposal! Celebrated at The Old Boathouse with a sharing platter and a bottle of champagne. Thank you Fiona & Steve.

Suzie, Ian, Josh and Isaac March 2019

Thank you for making our stay enjoyable. The view is fantastic we sat and watched the tide ebb & flow with all the wildlife taking advantage of anything they could find. Facilities great, eating out in Amble you are spoilt for choice. Hope to return soon.

We three arrived at The Quarterdeck and it was smashing! Staying with us was “Carmen” a 97 year old lady who has many great stories to tell from various decades of life! The apartment was exactly what we needed for a perfect holiday! The owners are obviously very nice people for accommodation our needs – would love to visit again – i know Amble from being a child – a friendly scenic village – very peaceful! Look out for the seal in the Marina! Great apartment. Thanks!

The Potts, Feb 2019

Great time in a great apartment. Recommend eating at ‘The Old Boathouse’ and ‘Sea & Soil’ friendly service and good food.

Clare, Mark, Valerie and Tony Feb 2019

What a great place for Christmas! Views, comfort, good food on the doorstep and such a friendly place. Love the apartment. We’ve stayed at Coble Quay before (last Christmas) but this is the best apartment!

The Anchorns, Christmas 2018

The perfect location for peace and quiet not forgetting the view from The Quarterdeck overlooking the marina which is soo peaceful, sitting in warm luxury in a perfect location not far away from those places where there is plenty to do should you feel the need to seek entertainment from the likes of Alnwick, Seahouses and other picture perfect places nearby. Things for the elderly and young. Nice spacious apartment to relax in – what more could you need!

We truly loved it. It was an amazing few days in a fantastic apartment – we did not wish to leave. Thank you everyone at Coquet Cottages and please pass on our thanks and gratitude to Steve and Fiona (and the kids thank them for the ice cream – that made their day!). Thank you.

A lovely apartment with stunning views! The Quarterdeck has a very ‘modern’ feel but was still easily accessible for my husband who has some mobility problem with there being lift access to the floor, and the apartment being all on the same level.

The Quarterdeck was a fantastic apartment that was fully kitted out for a two week family break! The view from the apartment, the cleanliness and the comfortable beds were what we liked best. In addition, the inclusion of simple items like toilet rolls and cleaning equipment was very practical, and thoughtful.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the standard of service provided by Coquet Cottages which is quite exemplary. We were contacted regularly (in person) to ensure we were happy with all the arrangements. The level of personal service puts you well above the competition.

We had a excellent time here. Fantastic views from the balcony and very comfortable beds and sofas.
