Map & Local Area

Just a step out of the door and the beautiful River Coquet is directly in front of you.  The main street of the village is just 5 minutes away on foot, and the beach just 15 minutes away on foot or 2 minutes in the car (free parking at the beach).  Everything is so accessible from Warkworth village, but there is enough to do in this beautiful and interesting village in walking distance without even getting in the car!

But to venture further afield, there is a wealth of amazing places to visit; Alnwick Castle with its world-famous Alnwick Garden and famous Cascade waterfall and also Alnwick Treehouse is just 15 minutes’ drive away, as well as the market town of Alnwick with its famous ‘Barter Books’ book emporium housed in the former Victorian railway station and farmers market in the town square.

The popular seaside village of Alnmouth is quite Bohemian – a magnet for artists and has lovely restaurants, pubs, and a great little art gallery ‘The Old School Gallery’.  Just a mile south of Warkworth is the very up and coming fishing port of Amble, which has some interesting little shops and a lovely seafront village with a marina, arty shops and award-winning fish restaurants and bistro’s.

A fantastic week had by all who came and enjoyed all that this house and surrounding area has to offer. A house with a stunning location, bags of character with loads of ‘nooks and crannies’. Simon and I had a wonderful time with 2 sets of families thoroughly enjoying their stay. All ages from babies, teenagers up to grandparents were catered for.

Tips from a local

You mustn’t miss Bertram’s in Warkworth. This cosy, welcoming and dog-friendly Bistro Cafe in the centre of the village is perfect for a hot chocolate by the fire through the winter months, or for a glass of wine out in the sun-trap patio garden. The menu is fantastic with all dishes made on site, or sourced locally and the staff are welcoming to all – children and dogs included.
Enjoy a brunch of Craster Kippers, fresh brown seeded bread and rocket salad after a walk on the beach – heaven.

Tips from a local

Take a walk along the estuary to Amble Fishing Town. Just over a mile from Warkworth, Amble offers stunning coastal scenery around the marina, harbour and pier. A browse around the pods in the Harbour Village are a great way to spend an afternoon, visiting local artists and independent shops, with a stop off at The Fish Shack for a bite to eat in the authentic dining hut.

Tips from a local

Visit iconic Warkworth Castle. The impressive and well-preserved medieval ruin right in the heart of the village dates back to the 1100’s, and is now in the care of English Heritage. The history of the castle and village is fascinating, and with its spiral staircases, towers and lawned grounds to explore, the castle provides an excellent afternoon out for all the family, just a 2 minute walk from the cottage.

Tips from a local

For a top notch meal in a warm and welcoming atmosphere, be sure to visit Jasper’s Cafe and Bistro in Amble, just 1 1/2 miles from Coquet View. The food is exquisite (Jasper’s reached number 1 on Trip Advisor out of 778 eateries in Northumberland!) and the staff go out of their way to ensure you enjoy your whole dining experience.

Tips from a local

Relax and enjoy a creamy Morwick Ice cream, in the surroundings of the countryside. Morwick Ice cream Parlour was rewarded in 2016 with a Certificate of Excellence award. Open daily between 12-5pm there are 16 flavours to choose from, so there is a flavour to suit everyone. Please click HERE for more details.

Owners of Coquet View

A Little Note from the Owners…

“We originally acquired Coquet View for our own home, however soon realised it was too beautiful and perfectly situated in the village not to share!

We knew it would make an exceptional holiday home and set about making it as comfortable as possible and furnishing it stylishly to reflect its Georgian heritage.

As soon as you step into this gorgeous house, it welcomes you – feeling like a grand country house yet as cosy as a cottage at the same time.  The rooms are all very spacious, many with high ceilings and I think we’ve managed to retain the Georgian period feel of the house whilst teasing it into the 21st century with all the mod cons you’d expect.

The location is just perfect – overlooking the beautiful riverbank and with all the lovely shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs just a few minutes easy stroll away.  The vast sandy beach is less than a mile away too!

Everyone who stays here loves it – we hope you will too and you return home with wonderful memories of this special house in a very special place in Northumberland.”
