  • "We have had a lovely week staying in the Croquet chalet."

    It was easy to find and we settled in and relaxed straight away. The chalet was clean and spacious, having plenty of storage and great facilities. With a cheeky bottle of wine thank you. The location and views were great and the garden, with the added bonus of a meadow to walk the dog… We will definitely recommend these chalets to our friends and family, possibly come back sometime.

  • "Everything you want from a holiday lodge, lovely clean accommodation set in a fabulous location."

    Four lodges, with an enclosed garden which was perfect for the summer evening, sitting watching the very many swallows flying around. The lodges are near the village and close to many places to visit, but located down a lovely quiet lane. Perfect for taking your dogs away to, a great field to be able to walk in and the lane, which is the local dog walking place to go so nice for a chat with the very friendly local residents.

  • "Loved the lodge, perfect for dog owners, even though we didn’t have one."

    Easy to find, parking excellent and very clean. Fairly well equipped. It’s perfect being out in the countryside but close to village ( walkable 20 mins) and main road so driving to coast or inland was easy. Views were stunning, lots of birds, we even had a nest of swallows who fledged while we were there. Beautiful large field just through the gate with grasses and wild flowers, nice to walk in even without a dog. A couple of very minor things, could do with a few more hangers, a rubber shower mat - floor of shower slippery and a loo brush. Would be delighted to return

  • "Great property in fantastic grounds."

    The view from the property is amazing. Enclosed garden was perfect for our dog and we enjoyed watching the house Martin's flying around. Village has everything we could need with so many amenities and all within walking distance. Great place to visit the great places that Northumberland has to offer.

  • "Coquet Lodge is a lovely property in a peaceful location with amazing views."

    It’s spacious enough for 4 and very clean and tidy. The location is great for access to all that Northumberland has to offer. Our only criticism is that the kitchen is a little lacking in basic equipment. There are only 3 quite small saucepans which meant cooking pasta/rice for 4 in 2 pans. There are also no lids for the saucepans! There is also only 1 sharp knife. Also, with only 4 bowls/plates etc, it meant having to keep washing stuff up just to be able to cook basic meals.

  • "The cottage is well appointed and, importantly, as we visited in very cold and windy early December, warm."

    All the rooms are well sized and the kitchen and bathroom are with good quality fittings. The beds are very comfortable and we slept very well during our stay. The wi-fi signal was good, a very important plus with the remote position of the property.The cottage is in a very quiet spot, with uninterrupted views across fields to hills beyond. It was too cold for us to spend any time on the large lawn in front of the cottage, but it would be great in the warmer weather. It's very easy to get to the cottage, as it's only about 3 or 4 minutes off the A697, and easy to get to all the main tourist attractions of Northumberland. Thanks for a great stay.

    Lovely and clean and the enclosed garden with adjoining field for the dogs was a big plus for us. Everything was very well kept including the garden and special dog walking field. We felt at home straight away in this property. Local village very nice with good corner shop, cafe/bakery and pub.

    Worked in my favour, as I have recently had a hip replacement. Struggled to get up from the settee. Immaculate home from home. Booked again for next year. Delighted to find a huge hedgehog visiting every evening. The next door field is also cut around the perimeter, to take your dog for a walk

The chalet is immaculate with everything we needed and a bottle of wine to welcome us. Lovely owners who left us to our own devices but live nearby.Even though there are 4 chalets none are overlooked and it is very quiet and rural but also only a couple of minutes to a lovely village with a great shop and pubs. The coast and country park are easily reached by car. All perfect for a peaceful week away.10 out of 10 from both of of us and the dogs

    The accommodation was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Fabulous position overlooking the valley and a nice secure garden for our little dog. The field next door was great too, Pixie had a fabulous time on the local beaches, she definitely had post holiday blues when we came home. The village was an easy 20 minute walk and had everything we needed, general shop, butcher, a fabulous bakery and two pubs. There was honestly nothing to fault.

    Clean, spacious and well appointed cottage with perfect secure garden for our dog and views to make the long journey to Northumberland very worth while. Whilst walking in the adjacent field we saw hares, deer and curlews. We were blessed with fabulous weather which made for some stunning sunsets. Village Inn and Running Fox both a 20 min walk and recommended. Perfect location for easy access to the gorgeous coastline, Wallington, Cragside etc. Wouldn't hesitate to book again (or other accommodation on this site) when we next return to this part of the country.

    The only disappointment was that despite the booking for arrival as per email - 3pm , we were informed when arranging to collect keys that it had been changed to 5pm for ! Covid cleaning ! My thoughts are that despite Covid 19 all accommodation should be thoroughly cleaned regardless. We had plans that had to be rearranged as a result of the late arrival. With the current situation not easy to just go to the pub etc . Suspect those with young children would struggle - hanging about after a reasonably long drive .

  • "This was our second visit to Coquet and unfortunately it did not meet the first trip."

    Due to the high winds sleep was not possible at night due to the howling wind which was lifting the seat on the veranda. This also caused our two dogs to be on edge throughout the first two nights. On the third day there was a power cut in the village which was when we decided to cut our stay short. Although we did receive a text about the power cut from the owners they never came to see us to check how we had got on due to the bad weather. A shame really but it has put us off returning.

    Our dogs thoroughly enjoyed themselves and every effort had been made to make sure that they could enjoy the fully enclosed garden. The accommodation is suitable for anyone who hasn’t got dogs and it was definitely a property that wasn’t a typical property of that type. As a dog owner we sometimes feel a bit like second class citizens. The property was absolutely spotless and much more spacious than we expected. It was warm and comfortable. The setting is fantastic with stunning views. I would definitely return and also have no hesitation in recommending to friends and family.

  • "Accommodation was very clean and warm."

    The large enclosed garden was particularly good for our 12 year old Westie who sadly is going blind. We have stayed at a number of sykes cottages over the years so have some experience of the standard we would expect. This accommodation was one of four on the site. Unfortunately it seemed like they had been kitted out with a job lot of sofas that were incredible uncomfortable to sit on.There was also limited utensils and pans ,so you couldn't cook your Sunday Roast if you wanted to. There was no cleaning equipment provided so you either left the hob dirty after a weeks of cooked breakfasts or as we did buy your own cleaner.Certainly the first time we have ever done that on holiday. So overall the location and peaceful surrounding was beautiful. On the whole the accommodation was good but spoilt by the lack of attention to some of the practical things needed.Perhaps we have been spoilt in past accommodation!!!!!

  • "Just back from our third stay in Coquet and we're missing the views of the Cheviots already."

    The lodge is in a beautiful, peaceful spot and we always enjoy our stay. Longframlington is a very friendly village and The Village Inn is dog friendly and does a lovely Sunday Carvery. The Running Fox is great for coffee and cake {dog friendly too} and the village shop is handy. The enclosed dog walking area in the village is useful even though there are lots of places to enjoy a walk. The garden is totally enclosed so no worries about letting our dog have free access to the garden. Great to sit on the garden bench and watch or listen to the curlews or skylarks. Cheviot is always exceptionally clean and provides us with all we need. The heating is very easy to operate so we're always warm and cosy even when the weather decides to be difficult! The only slight problem for us is the bed is a double not king as stated. This hasn't deterred us as we keep going back but it would make sleeping easier and the room is definitely big enough to accommodate a kingsize. Lovely to have a bottle of wine on arrival courtesy of the owners. Can't wait to go back.

    This is incorrect as the TV had an integrated DVD. Surely the owners should know this as there were DVDs in the property!

It's a shame we were only there for the weekend (a friends wedding nearby) because you could easily stay there for a week or two and be very settled and comfy.
