Coquet Cottage

Longframlington, Northumberland

Cosy bolthole for two in a tiny hamlet next to a river and pub; walk the hills or spend the day at the unspoiled coast


1 bedroom


Sleeps 2


Your stone-built cottage is in a peaceful 17th-century hamlet with a pub that was once a coaching inn on the original route from Scotland to England. You’re steps from the Coquet river; pick up a fishing permit at the bar when the salmon are in season.

Friendly owners Lorraine and Paul live next door and take care to meet guests and share their love of the local area. A bountiful welcome basket includes wine, jam, eggs, coffee and chocolate, and Mary Dixon’s lemon drizzle cake. There are also plenty of logs for the wood-burner and slippers in case you’ve forgotten yours.

Country walks start from the door, and you can hop in the car to explore the Northumberland coast’s sandy beaches and castles. Return to hearty, locally sourced food from the pub or cook for yourselves in the spick and span kitchen; sit out in the pretty patio or spend cosy evenings in with board games, DVDs and a selection of good books for company.

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.

Rebecca, Oxford

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

The 17th-century hamlet of Weldon Bridge consists of a row of six pretty sandstone cottages, a converted mill house and a former coaching inn, The Angler’s Arms, nestled by the River Coquet. Coquet Cottage was originally the animal barn, attached to the Grade II listed farmhouse next door. The nearest village, Longframlington, is two miles to the north and has a grocer’s, butchers, artisan coffee shop and two village inns. You’re 20 minutes' drive from sandy beaches and impressive castles on Northumberland Coast AONB and ten miles from the market towns of Alnwick and Morpeth.

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!


Lorraine & Paul Dryden

Lorraine and Paul Dryden love the peace and quiet of Weldon Bridge, finding it the perfect place to kick back and relax after a busy day. They love the rural living, dark skies and countryside walks from their doorstep, yet being close enough to shops and restaurants in the market towns and villages nearby. Although the cottage has a keybox, Lorraine likes to greet her guests personally and show them around the cottage; the visitor information file she’s compiled has plenty of advice on the local area.
