“Simply the best”
Reviewed 9 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

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.

“Excellent appartment, well located to explore Northumberland”
Reviewed 3 May 2013 for a stay in April 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.

“luxury apartment”
Reviewed 19 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

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.

“excellent”
Reviewed 22 July 2012 for a stay in 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.

Liked best: lovely flat in a great location, and excellent friendly service.
Liked least: For groups with mobility problems this flat might not be quite as ideal - there are internal stairs from ground level to the 1st floor flat (though with rail) and some steps within the flat - so difficulties with stairs could be an issue.

“Fabulous place to stay”
Reviewed 17 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

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.
