Map & Local Area

Honeycomb Cottage has the best of both worlds; being right in the heart of the pretty countryside yet just minutes in the car to medieval Warkworth village. In Warkworth, you can find 4 dog-friendly pubs, all serving great food. 3 cafe’s – Bertrams is dog-friendly too! A couple of restaurants (our favourite is The Old Post Office), and a great selection of shops including a French Patisserie!

Your nearest beach is also Warkworth, where there is free parking behind the dunes. It takes about 10 minutes in the car to get there. Druridge Bay, Alnmouth, Alnwick, Beadnell, Embleton, Seahouses and Bamburgh are all very easy to get to if you follow the well-signposted Coastal Route, as well as Craster on the coast too. Alternatively discover Rothbury and Kielder forest inland, famous for the Dark Skies – nothing like you have seen at home!

First impression as ‘WOW’ and it continued all weekend! Very well equipped cottage with all the luxuries of home. Loved the rural location, and only a short drive to beaches etc… We loved Northumberland and will return soon. Coquet Cottages are the best!

Tips from a local

When it’s chilly outside and you need an afternoon ‘pick-me-up’, pop along to Cabosse, (the French Chocolatiere in the village) and ask for their signature hot chocolate. Louise Frederick – the owner – melts her handmade chocolate into hot milk, to create the silkiest, creamiest, richest hot chocolate you will have ever had. Warning: chocolate overload!

Tips from a local

Explore Thrunton Woods by trying one of their exhilarating walks to experience some of the best loved views of Northumberland from the top of lofty crags, through miles of maturing forest and open moorland. The two most popular trails are Crag Top Walk and Castle Hill Walk. You can park your car in the designated car park at Thrunton Woods and even take a picnic on a fine day. Thrunton Woods is located up the A697 north of Rothbury.

Tips from a local

Have a trip to Alnwick Castle and Gardens, and enjoy a spot of lunch at The Treehouse. Although not cheap to get into the attractions, the tickets do allow entry for a year so it’s an excuse to visit Northumberland again! Make sure you book up in advance at The Treehouse as it’s very popular.

Owners of Honeycomb Cottage

A Little Note from the Owners…

“Honeycomb Cottage, along with its sister properties Bumblebee Cottage and Dove Cottage, is a former farm-workers’ residence which we have recently renovated.

We love the quiet location and wide open spaces, but also enjoy having easy access to the beautiful villages, stunning beaches and dramatic countryside close by. It’s a treat to watch the local wildlife just outside the window and to be nestled within the slow pace of rural life.  The cottages are south-facing, so it’s lovely to curl up in a cosy chair, soaking up the warming sun and dramatic light during the day and gazing at the big, starry skies at night.

Having brought this cottage back to life we now take a lot of pride and pleasure in personally preparing it for our guests to ensure that, like us, you find being here is a relaxing and rejuvenating experience.”
