We have stayed in this group of cottages several times before and we are sure others would be as happy as we are with every aspect. The cottage was in a picturesque setting, close to the Coquet river and near the villages of Alwinton and Harbottle. There are fine walks nearby and further into the hills which would suit every type of walker. The neaRead morerby pub is most friendly and does excellent food - essential after a long walk! Hide

Fantastictic. Fantastic location and extremely peaceful, underfloor heating and constant hot water. The kitchen was an excellent hub for eating and socialising.

Beautiful cottage and a beautiful location. I love Northumberland. The scenery is stunning and there is so much to do and see.

Coquet cottage was just what we wanted for our holiday. The kitchen was lovely and with the log fires burning in the evening, we were so warm and cozy, even when it was snowing outside! We had a wonderful weeks holiday in the cottage, with lovely walks from the front door. If you want a peaceful break away from the hustle and bustle, then Coquet CoRead morettage is the place to be!

We have just spent a fantastic few days at Coquet Cottage. The cottage is just lovely, very oldy worldy, but with really modern twists that give the best of both. The cottage is very clean and well maintained, and was much bigger than expected. Very comfortable for 6 people. The kitchen and bathroom are new and very modern, and the cottage is well Read moreheated throughout, the open fires being a great extra for a quiet and cosy evening in. The beds are really comfy, and the garden really pretty and well maintained. The setting for the cottages is just gorgeous. It is very remote, but as long as you understand this when you book, you will be very happy. The area is in the dark skies area of the national park. It is beautiful. The owners are there if needed, but are very considerate of your privacy. Some cottages I have stayed in the owners can be a little over-zealous at showing you around and telling you the do's and dont's, but here they are very laid back. The key is in a coded lock box and all the info you need is in the book provided. The only comment I would make is that if the cottage is for 6 people, maybe more comfortable seating for 6 in the living room would be a benefit (suite for 4, plus 2 wooden rockers) and also there were only 5 chairs at the dining table (we used a chair from another room with some cushions, fine for the little one). However this is a very minor negative compared to the positives this place offers. The area is just beautiful, with some gorgeous walks. The Rose and Thistle in nearby Alwinton serves a good pint. All in all a fantastic stay. I would recommend this cottage to anyone, and would definitely go back there. Thanks for a lovely stay. Hide

Coquet cottage has a fabulous kitchen, but shame the bathroom wasn't of the same standard, (though very clean). A minor complaint really though as the cottage was very good value for money. hope to return sometime.

Great clean and tidy cottage.

The cottage has great decor and a new kitchen. The situation is peaceful but still accessible within easy access of many attractions. Belsay Hall has amazing gardens and Brinkburn Priory is a haven of calm.

If you’re looking for a seaside holiday with a difference, visit Northumberland – a region brimming with beautiful golden, sandy beaches, rolling hills, craggy moorland, bustling market towns and fishing villages, and more castles than in any other county in England.

Situated in the North East of England, this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty boasts no less than 39 miles of unspoilt coastline to explore and a calendar packed with exhilarating water sports options. To indulge in a spot of surfing, kayaking or powerboating, take a trip to one of the many breath-taking Northumberland beaches - where dogs love a good walk and fresh local seafood is never far away.

Home to the awe-inspiring Cheviot Hills and the historical Hadrian’s Wall, the Northumberland National Park is renowned for its open spaces, award-winning Dark Skies and stunning rural backdrops - and is the least populated national park in Britain. Offering access to challenging hikes, horse-riding, rock-climbing and a multitude of other action-packed activities, the park is one of the region’s greatest draws.

There is a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted, whether you take a boat ride to the Farne Islands to admire the colony of Atlantic grey seals and puffins, or explore the Kielder Water and Forest Park, home to magnificent ospreys. If it’s history you’re looking for, the imposing Bamburgh Castle and the world-famous Alnwick Castle are undoubtedly worth a visit.

Alternatively, if you’re seeking the bright lights of a city adventure, Newcastle upon Tyne is the place to go. Here, you can experience world-class culture, outstanding attractions, superb shopping, impressive live shows, top entertainers and delicious cuisine in abundance.
