About the location

Lying in the loop of the River Coquet on the Heritage Coast, Warkworth is a picturesque village, dominated by the dramatic ruins of its 12th century castle. The history of the village and the castle are intertwined with the Percy Family who took over the castle in 1332. The Percys’ other home is nearby Alnwick Castle, most recently associated with Harry Potter as the film location of Hogwarts School. The main street is lined with Georgian and early Victorian houses and there is an exceptional range of galleries, antique shops, a village shop/Post office, pubs, restaurants and gift shops to suit all tastes. Warkworth has its own stretch of sandy beach and a 9 hole pay and play golf course. Also within easy touring distance are Hadrian’s Wall, Bamburgh Castle, Holy Island, the Farne Islands, several wonderful beaches and Alnwick Garden with its remarkable water cascade and Tree House Restaurant.

The property is well located for visitor attractions on the coast and inland and for walking. There is plentiful information supplied on this. The accommodation itself was good and we would be happy to recommend it.

Mr Brown, Perth, October 2013

The cottage is very spacious and comfortable for two people. It is in a lovely quiet location, yet well placed for access to the A1 for all destinations in Northumberland.

Mrs Fletcher, Keighley, October 2013

The cottage was lovely, and in a very tranquil environment. If you need to be cut off from the world it comes highly recommended.

Mrs Halliwell, Bolton, October 2013

Mr Skevington, Loughborough, September 2013

Excellent cottage located near to many excellent beaches and great wildlife. Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating!

Mr Bullas, Sheffield, August 2013

First off we had a lovely warm welcome from the owners with wine and milk ready for us in the fridge. Also there were freshly cut flowers in the lounge. The shower was powerful and easy to use and the bed was extremely comfortable. We stayed during a very hot spell but the cottage was cool and it was easy to sleep at night. We loved the rustic decor and the great, peaceful location of the cottage. The garden was good to relax in and the wildlife was amazing. We were within easy reach of a number of nice places to go. The owners had thoughtfully compiled an extensive reference dossier for the area. We visited castles, gardens, villages and beaches. This was our best cottage holiday yet. In fact it was just perfect!

Mrs Horsfall, Pontefract, July 2013

Excellent cottage, very spacious and homely hosts. Good central area for what we wanted to see in Northumberland.

Mr & Mrs Mayes, St. Neots, June 2013

The cottage was bigger than expected. In a quiet location with friendly owners.

Mr Leonard, Bedworth, May 2013

Made welcome by the owners and shown where everything was in the property. The wildlife in the garden was lovely. A very relaxing place to stay.

Mrs Hunter, Sleaford, July 2012
