Coquet Cottages

An escape to the coast and countryside away from the hustle and bustle of city life is just what we need this autumn. With over 140 luxury holiday homes across the best coast and countryside locations in Northumberland, Coquet Cottages have the ultimate collection of unique, luxury holiday homes that’ll feel like a home away from home – and you also bring your pooch along, too!

From the wonderful historic village of Warkworth to the beautiful beach of Bamburgh, all of their gorgeous properties have been awarded 4 or 5 stars from Visit England – so you can expect fabulous interiors, amazing attention to detail and a signature concierge service taking the hassle away from your stay – leaving you more time to focus on your relaxing retreat.

HLN TOP TIP: Why not try out their ground-breaking 3D virtual tours so you can virtually walk around the property to explore areas before you book?



Think sleeping under the stars but with a taste of luxury. Set in stunning landscapes on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Yurtshire has two stunning sites set only a few miles apart with Yurtshire Fountains home on a meadow and Yurtshire Eavestone Lake featuring tree-yurts built on high decks overlooking the woodland.

Here you’ll make this magical space your home away from home by escaping all your worries by truly relaxing, enjoying the surroundings of getting back to nature whilst not compromising on any of your luxuries. All the yurts are self-contained with their own ensuite facilities including log fires, kitchen, dining areas and hot tubs to keep you warm over the autumn months.
