Coquet Cottage

Longframlington, Northumberland

Cosy Northumbrian bolthole with a generous welcome basket and a wood-burner, by the beautiful river Coquet and a good pub


1 bedroom


Sleeps 2


Good for foodies, anglers, photographers and ramblers – a peaceful cottage steps from the river Coquet and a much-visited pub. Pick up a fishing permit from the bar, then return later to feast on hearty, locally sourced food. Your stone-built cottage stands in a pretty row dating back to the 17th century. Owners Lorraine and Paul live next door and take care to meet guests and share their love of the local area. You’re in very good hands here; a welcome basket including wine, homemade cake, eggs and Nespresso pods is one of many thoughtful touches. Walk into a small lobby with space for muddy boots, then through to an airy, open-plan room. Stag’s antlers are stylishly mounted above a white wood-burner facing a plump leather sofa, while wooden floors and cream walls create a bright feel throughout. A spick and span kitchen/diner with an ercol table has all a cook may need. After a cosy night by the fire, head upstairs to watch spectacular sunsets over the Simonside hills and sleep in a sleigh bed dressed in fine white linen; the sparkling bathroom has fragrant lotions and potions. Walks start from the door.

My wife and I had an excellent week in this lovely area of Northumberland. The cottage is in a quiet village and has everything you need for a very comfortable stay. Two minutes down the road is a pub serving good food for those evenings when you don't feel like cooking. Alnwick , with its wonderful castle and gardens is only 25 mins away - the second hand bookshop in the town is also well worth a visit. The interesting Northumbrian coastline for walks etc is a similar distance. At the end of our days out we always looked forward to the comforts of the cottage.

A lovely little place for two where you can relax and unwind. The cottage is very well equipped and has been beautifully furnished with a nod to mid century design. Great local walking and a friendly local pub just a couple of minutes walk away.

We were very impressed with this beautifully furnished cottage which is ideally placed for visiting all the main sites in Northumberland. The cottage contained all that we needed for our stay including a well stocked welcome basket. Lorraine and Paul were a very friendly couple who were happy to chat to us and recommend places to visit as well as pubs/restaurants. Northumberland has many fantastic sites to explore but it was good at the end of the day to return to our lovely cottage and sit in the delightful courtyard or in front of the wood burning stove accompanied by plenty of candles.

We felt instantly at home at Coquet cottage. Lorraine's attention to detail was fantastic and the house full of little touches to make relaxing easy. Spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and lots of information on the local area provided. We loved staying here and will certainly visit again!

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Lorraine & Paul Dryden

  • Centrally located between two historic market towns- Alnwick and Morpeth. Visit Alnwick Castle the Duchess of Northumberland's Alnwick Garden and Treehouse restaurant. In Morpeth visit the Northumbrian Bagpipe museum or take a rowing boat along the river.
  • 15 minutes drive from the outstandingly wild, rugged and beautiful Northumberland coast, castles and golden beaches . The fishing harbour of Craster,Dunstanburgh Castle, Low Newton and a visit to The Ship Inn for fresh crab sandwiches, highly recommended.
  • Country pubs and country walks literally from your doorstep. A short drive away, explore Bamburgh Castle and the Grace Darling museum or catch the tide and cross the causeway to historic Lindisfarne and Holy Island.
  • Hill walking abounds in diverse landscapes: take up the challenge of the Cheviots, visit the remote College Valley: marvel at the natural waterfall and plunge pool at Ingram Valley that is Linhope Spout; succumb to Simonside Hills and its mystical charms.
  • Huge skies and starry nights. Wonder at the moon and stars up close at Kielder Observatory. Dine on fine food at The Pheasant Inn whilst awaiting nightfall, or closer to home simply take a step outside and gaze upwards from your cottage doorstep!.
  • Northumberland has so much to offer, one visit will not be enough!
