Coquet Retreat Family Cottage description

Holiday home
Coquet Retreat is a lovely first floor apartment in the heart of Rothbury. The king-size master bedroom has an en-suite with jet shower, and there is a twin room plus family bathroom with corner spa bath. The well-equipped kitchen has a dining area, granite worktops and doors to the balcony, and the sitting room has a gas fire. Outside, the balcony has seating and spiral stairs lead down to a ground floor courtyard with furniture and BBQ. Coquet Retreat is an ideal base for family and friends to enjoy the amenities of the town or explore the countryside and attractions such as Cragside, Hadrian's Wall and Alnwick Castle and gardens.

The small market town of Rothbury is in a most beautiful setting, surrounded as it is by the Simonside Hills, Blaeberry, Cragside and, in the distance, the Cheviots. The town is on the north side of the Coquet River, which is famous for its salmon and trout, and is close to Northumberland's National Park. Rothbury has open tennis courts and a golf course as well as walking, riding, cycling and fishing to recommend it to visitors. Its specialist shops are also a significant attraction. There are several great Northumbrian houses nearby, including Wallington Hall and Alnwick Castle, with its stunning gardens, which are the work of the Duchess of Northumberland. Kielder Reservoir and Hadrian's Wall are both in the local area, and there is an abundance of wide sandy beaches to be discovered and enjoyed.

Northumberland is a heady combination of fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and historic Hadrian's Wall, tied together by beautiful countryside and abundant wildlife.

A lovely apartment, really homely. It has plenty of space, with all the amenities you could need. Really comfy sofas after a days walking! Spa bath was a luxury.

The location was excellent for exploring Northumberland. Rothbury is a lovely town with a good selection of eating places and shops all within easy walking distance. The owners were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. They provided off road car parking for our two vehicles.

This was our first visit to Northumberland. The apartment is in an excellent location in Rothbury with everything you need literally on the doorstep. The apartment was so lovely to come back to after a long day and the owner was very helpful, would definitely recommend Coquet Retreat as a place to stay.

Good location, right in the centre of Rothbury. Apartment was large, airy and light with everything you could possibly need. Lots to do in the area, which is one of the most beautiful parts of the UK. We really had a great week.
Mr Sykes

The accommodation was first class, one of the best we have ever stayed in. The town location is excellent for touring the beautiful surrounding areas, and there is enough to do within the town, and at the renowned nearby Cragside House. Definitely recommend both the accommodation and the location.
Mr Chapman

The cottage was first class, best we have been in. The situation was brilliant, good butcher, baker, pub for drinks and food, and a beautiful little tea room all literally one minutes walk away. The owner was lovely too.
Mrs Heron
August 2013
Coquet Retreat was a beautiful apartment, very stylish, clean, comfortable and much more spacious than we expected. The location was very central and appropriate for our needs. We would definitely return, and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.
Mr Barefoot

Spacious, comfortable apartment, pleasant courtyard area and breakfasts on the balcony. Everything is finished to the highest standard and then some. Rothbury itself makes a great base to stay with all amenities to hand and friendly local people. As for Northumbria...if you like stunning beaches and countryside, loads of wildlife, empty roads and fabulous, historical places to visit then it's the place to be.
Mrs Carr

It was everything we had hoped for, plus more! The apartment was a delight, so relaxing, comfortable, easy to live in, every comfort and convenience had been thought of and supplied. It was in a good setting, with village amenities a few minutes walk and many places to go to and visit within a short drive. It would be difficult to find fault, it was almost perfect in every way.
Miss Lord

A wonderful welcome awaited us of wine, muffins, fruit and a lovely message. The cottage was fabulous and we had a fantastic time. It was everything we hoped for and more!

Mrs Laitt

The Coquet Retreat was a beautiful place to stay. The owner and her family made us very welcome and were available if we needed anything. The accommodation was great for relaxing after a long day seeing the surrounding area. There was everything you would need. The butchers over the road did some fabulous sausages and the cake that the owner had left for us on our arrival was really good - so good we had to get another! You can't go wrong with this place, if only the weather had been a little better.
Mrs Mott
July 2012
The village of Rothbury is lovely with all the amenities you would need. The apartment was beautifully furnished and well equipped, the owner was very welcoming as was the bottle of wine on our arrival. We would highly recommend the Indian restaurant at the end of Bridge Street. All in all we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and would definitely visit again.

Spent a week in April at Coquet Retreat in Rothbury. This luxury apartment was ideal for us, it's well designed and has some nice additional touches, like a spa bath, jet shower and range cooker. Probably not best suited to someone who needs wheelchair access due to stairs and steps within the apartment. Rothbury is also a great Base for exploring Northumberland, being centrally located and having a number of good pubs, restaurants/cafes and food shops. It's also very close to Cragside house and gardens and half an hour from Alnwick with its castle and garden.

The owners of this lovely apartment have thought of everything you could possibly need to make your stay here as comfortable as possible. It is equipped and furnished to the highest of standards. Located in a charming small friendly town and ideally situated for visiting the many attractions of Northumberland. We would definately stay here again if we return for another visit.

We stayed at Coquet Retreat For one week but wish it had been longer. The cottage was everything we wanted and more. The furnishings and fittings were all first class and since the weather was good it was lovely to have breakfast and a drink on an evening on the balcony .The parking on the road outside was difficult but to us posed no problem as the owner allowed us to park in their yard just round corner off the road and this was preferable to us. The cottage was amazingly central with a good pub(queens head) butchers bakers and lovely little tea room(harleys) literally a couple of minutes walk away and many other shops and eating places within easy reach. With plenty of attractions around we had a really good holiday and will be back..Finally thank you Mrs Stewart you were brilliant and your cottage was probably the best we have ever stayed in.We will be back.

A very comfortable, luxurious apartment, in the centre of Rothbury, which is lovely to return to after walking in the beautiful and wild Cheviots. It is in the heart of the small town with all the convenience that offers, but also very quiet, so thoroughly recommended. Lovely bathroom with underfloor heating, and great kitchen.
May 2013
We stayed for 5 nights at the end of April. The apartment is well located for exploring both Rothbury and the rest of Northumbria. It was clean and comfortable with more than enough space for all of us. Kitchen just right, lovely bathrooms and a comfortable lounge. Would stay here again.
July 2012
stayed here for five nights with wife and young child. lovely flat. quite spacious. clean. Modern, with lots of nice touches which are quite luxurious and to be honest more in keeping with a 5-star hotel (private balcony with floor lights, private patio with bench swing, fancy multidirectional shower in the en-suite, jacuzzi bath...). Very friendly welcome, friendly personal service from the owners, and a personalised "welcome pack" there on our arrival including a picture book for our child. It is situated very conveniently in Rothbury - about 2 minutes from the co-op for supplies, and a minute from the river which is picturesque and great for walks. Next to the main road but this is a small town and there was no problem with traffic noise. On-street parking though this was easily found within 10 metres of the front door, and owners also offered use of parking nearby if need be. Rothbury in itself seems lovely, and conveniently placed for visiting a variety of attractions in the north east. Also a great place to explore on its own merits. We contacted the owners directly following a review of their own website as well as a general holiday rentals website.

We had a wonderful time at Coquet Retreat. The accommodation is really lovely. Very clean, luxurious and spacious. It has lovely touches like fairy lights embedded in the hallway floor and my children loved the swing chair outside in the courtyard. The owners are very friendly and make you feel most welcome - we were very appreciative of the cake, cookies, milk and bowlful of fruit that awaited us on arrival! Rothbury is a very nice market town with the fabulous Cragside National Trust property on its doorstop. It has a Co-op, excellent butchers and two bakeries. We ate out at 'Italia Plus' one evening and had lunch at 'The Congregational Art Gallery' - both I would recommend. Would highly recommend Coquet Retreat if planning a holiday in Northumberland.

In a good location, central for seeing Northumberland. Exceptionally well equipped and furnished, pleasant accommodation in the centre of the town.

This property is ideally situated. Rothbury has everything you could want on the doorstep and all within easy walking distance. The property is also well sited for all the surrounding tourist attractions and the coast. The apartment itself has everything you could want and is welcoming as is the owner Alison.
