Our visitors’ book at Tower Cottage 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 Tower Cottage.
Great location and lovely cottage, perfectly appointed! We wanted somewhere near the coast, with an open fire and centrally located along the Northumberland coast which Tower Cottage met. The welcome basket contained a lovely selection of Northumberland goodies which we enjoyed during our stay.
We enjoyed the location, space, and its old-worldly charm.
This was a beautiful cottage, in a perfect location which felt like home from home. There were high quality furnishings, which were exceptionally clean. The welcome basket was a real treat. It felt very homely not like a rental at all. It had a comfortable bed and sofa. We would highly recommend the cottage and use of your services, feels like you really consider your guests and are committed to providing a personal service. Thank you.
Absolutely wonderful stay . Well equipped cottage and in a perfect location. The welcome pack was just what we needed on arrival. Thank you, everything was perfect.
Lovely cottage we really enjoyed our stay here and the cottage was well equipped. We have not done self catering for over 30 years, but found everything straight forward and staff the we’re very helpful and pleasant. We were delighted with welcome basket and couldn’t think of anything else which could have been put in. It had a cosy feel and was central.
Had such a lovely time, this cottage is perfect for 2 and a dog, beautifully presented and every thing you could ever need was provided. We would very highly recommend the property to others. Everything, just perfect!
This is a lovely cosy property opposite Warkworth Castle, all the local amenities are within walking distance. We regularly book with Coquet Cottages, as the cottages are all lovely and the customer service is very good. Our booking was initially for Easter 2021, but this had to be changed due to the restrictions, and I felt Coquet Cottages were very fair and looked after us, when we had to change things. We are looking forward to our holiday at Pottergate Tower in November.
It was a nice surprise to find the hamper, that was very welcoming and the bunch of flowers was really nice too. Everything was perfect for us, just to have the peace and tranquillity was perfect. Coquet Cottages is an excellent company to have a holiday with, catering for your every need. Your staff were very obliging and made us feel as ease. Tower Cottage was excellent, authentic and spotlessly clean.

We loved the welcome basket and the fresh flowers, which was really lovely to be greeted by on arrival. The fudge biscuits were a firm favourite! It felt like home from home and was very cosy.
This was a fabulous cottage. This was a winter break and so we wanted to be in a village with little shops, restaurants ect. We arrived on a miserable day and we had a lovely text saying we could access early. So welcome!! We had a wonderful hamper that got us started. It was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed and all the appliances were easy to use! Communication is excellent. We had a phone call to check we had no queries before we set off. Being allowed early access was perfect!!
Lovely few days in your very well equipped cottage. Thank you so much for all the extras.
Thank you for the perfect stay in this perfect cottage. Our first time in Northumberland but definitely not our last! Highlights were the miles of glorious beaches, Bamburgh Castle, smoked salmon from Craster and heading in land to the beautiful scenery of the national park. Looking forward to coming back!
The look of the cottage and the location – being in the centre of a coastal village was great. And thank you for the speedy replies when I used the instant chat function. Tower Cottage was absolutely gorgeous and catered for all our needs – everything we could possibly have wanted was there. Absolutely everything was in the welcome basket that we needed to start our holiday, the local produce – especially the bread which was delicious. And also the scones/cakes which were very welcome with a cup of tea after a long drive. We liked the welcoming cosiness created by the way it was decorated.
Thank you Sue for another wonderful week in your lovely cottage. It has worked it’s magic again and we are going home refresed and ready to face whatever is around lifes next corner! Thank you for the welcome basket a glass of wine and a warm cosy welcome was just what we needed! We will be back!
Beautiful cottage with plenty of character. Clean and dog friendly. Have booked next July already for wedding anniversary.
Had a fabulous stay in wonderful Northumberland. Your cottage was warm, welcoming and cosy, a nice retreat. Will come again! May Thanks.
Such a comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean cottage. We really enjoyed our stay. The welcome pack was very generous as always. Great location , just for the two of us. Couldn’t fault anything. The Welcome Hamper was very generous, no need to shop at all. The scones very yummy! Very homely cottage. Everything very comfortable. Exceptional view!
Dog friendly and near the beach with rivers nearby. Everything about the cottage was as described. It had a luxurious feel but kept the ‘cosy’ feel too. It was a lovely surprise to receive a welcome basket filled with quality items. A really nice touch. Your customer service we found to be excellent. The personal telephone calls were much appreciated. We’ve already recommended your company to friends, having found you through recommendation ourselves.

A cosy well equipped cottage, a lovely welcome pack awaited us on arrival, fresh bread and scones, butter, milk, wine, coffee, tea and even treats for our dog. Also toiletries from White company . Everything is first rate, we loved it and will certainly visit again.
Good location for visiting the stunning Northumberland coast.
A weekend away for my 40th birthday from my son and wife. They were blown away by the personal touch shown to them and the superior quality of the accommodation. We loved everything in the Welcome Basket – the 40th birthday card and bubbly was so generous.
Lovely and clean with all requirements we needed for ourselves and our dog! The welcome basket was very welcome and a generous surprise, the fact some produce was local was a lovely touch.
A beautiful cottage in a fantastic location. We have really enjoyed our stay. The weather was beautiful and we look forward to our next visit. Hopefully in the near future.
We have been delighted with this lovely cottage. Thank you for all the thoughtful care that has gone into it. The welcome pack added a touch of luxury and we appreciated the comprehensive range of facilities.
Had a fantastic holiday in a beautiful cottage with beautiful walks along the river and beach. The cottage was very comfortable with everything we could have wanted. The welcome gift was much appreciated and thoughtful. We will return & recommend it to others.
Birthday breakaway fantastic location. Cottage was like a home from home. So clean and relaxed. Gift basket for us and Monty the dog was lovely. Will definitely book again.
Brilliant cottage, great location. Dog loved the beach. A fantastic welcome pack & deffo coming back again – one word ‘perfect’.
Lovely cottage in a great location! A generous ‘welcome pack’ and great flowers on arrival – much appreciated.
We have really enjoyed our first visit to Northumberland. Very comfortable cottage, in pretty Warkworth.
Fabulous cottage, loads of finishing touches and care. Amazing stay and welcome basket.
Echo all of the previous comments. Cosy cottage, much enjoyed. Thank you!
The cottage was a perfect base for our travels around all the magnificent things Northumbria has to offer. The accommodation was a perfect home from home.
Lovely welcome pack for us and our dog which was really thoughtful. The cottage was very clean and well decorated giving it a cosy feel – just what we wanted. The real fire and the location were great. Had a great weekend in Warkworth, I would definitely book with Coquet Cottages again.
The cottage was absolutely delightful – we especially loved the attention to detail! The main living/sitting room had a great atmosphere. Open fire place, comfortable sofa were winners! But then again, the bedroom is a real contender – it was so comfy and well decorated.
Everything was perfect i cant think of a single thing that would have made it any better. We would definitely return, it was cosy and warm, compact and in a great location. We were very satisfied with everything.
We have often gone on self catering holidays due to having a dog, but the personal touch of the welcome basket for myself and my partner and our dog was absolutely lovely. Thank you for a lovely stay, the homely feel of the cottage was appreciated and all the equipment and welcome was perfect.
Lots of stuff! Having stayed in holiday homes which offered only the bare minimum I had packed so much things, such as dishcloth, floor cloth, washing up liquid, cleaning product, salt,pepper, vinegar etc. to ensure we had all we needed. BUT none of these were needed as everything we needed was already there. Much better than other bookings. Also the welcome pack was tremendous – and made us feel very pampered. The cottage was so warm we did not need to light the fire even in December. The information file was very informative and well displayed. It was lovely to receive a phone call on the 2nd day to ensure we were happy – and we were! I will recommend Coquet Cottages to all our family & friends. We had a lovely stay, and the villagers made us feel very welcome.
Loved the welcome pack – great personal touch. And Sue took time to contact us to see if everything was ok, great service! Lovely break. Thanks for everything!
Loved the welcome pack! Generous and thoughtful collection, with some luxury items that made a great difference to our stay and meant we did not have to go shopping on our first days. Thanks Sue! Beautifully furnished and comfortable, with everything we needed. We wanted to live there! The collection of books and maps and guides on walking in the book cabinet were extremely helpful and much appreciated. Delighted that I found Coquet Cottages on the internet and when we visit Northumberland again we will certainly look to stay in one of your properties.
First class cottage. Lovely area, very friendly village. Will see you again!
A beautiful cottage in a lovely village. Lots of lovely local footpaths to walk. Welcome basket was excellent, very thoughtful! Alnwick Castle & Gardens, very good. Loved Northumberland!
Really enjoyed our stay at this gorgeous cottage. The thoughtful welcome pack and all the little touches made you feel at home. Ideally located for days out in Northumberland – will be back!
Great location, pretty cottage and all we needed for our stay. Thank you for the welcome hamper, wine & beautiful scones.
Very enjoyable stay. Cottage was excellent and immaculate. Really appreciated the generous welcome pack. Loved the whole area & will be returning – quite likely to this cottage! Walkworth, Alnmouth, Beadnell & Creswell beaches are beautiful.
What a beautiful cottage! We have had a fantastic stay in Northumberland and Tower Cottage was the perfect base. Thank you for the lovely welcome pack and card. This has been the best way possible to start our honeymoon! Thank you! The Farne Islands are well worth a visit to see the puffins and seals – a real treat!
Can only reiterate what a beautiful cottage this is and thank you for the brilliant welcome basket. Wine was my favourite! This coastline is beautiful and there is so much to do & see, more visits are needed.
Lovely cottage, beautiful surroundings – home from home! Never been to Northumberland before but we will definitely come back, it is beautiful! The cottage and location are stunning and Warkworth is a lovely, friendly village and perfect base for exploring Northumberland!
Every single need is catered for in this lovely cottage. Such touching, thoughtful things provided – Bertie loved the biscuits! Beautiful place the visit!
Really enjoyed our stay. The cottage is so homely and cosy. We love Warkworth, a beautiful and peaceful place. The beach is fantastic! We will be back to explore more!
An excellent cottage in every respect.
We do stay in many cottages in UK and this was one of the best!
We have had a fantastic week here! The cottage is gorgeous and the welcome pack is fabulous. The weather was superb and we will return.
Thank you for a wonderful honeymoon here in gorgeous Warkworth. The cottage is absolutely perfect.
Fantastic cottage, a real home from home. This wonderful bolt hole gave us the best base to a wonderful holiday here on the coast of Northumberland.
Wonderful cottage in a great village, third time we’ve stayed here…
Adored the cottage, and welcome basket. A home from home. Thank you Sue for making such a delightful place so welcoming and warming.
Lovely cosy cottage, lots of nice little touches and fantastic welcome basket. Love the area and the beaches, thank you.
