Warkworth Holiday Cottages
The picturesque village of Warkworth is a popular choice for holiday makers who want to experience a Northumberland coastal holiday with so much more! The coastal village of Warkworth is home to the magnificent and unmissable Warkworth Castle that stands at the top of the village looking down over the River Coquet. There are some great riverside walks from the castle and in the summer months you can take a rowing boat and meander down the river listening to the sounds of the local wildlife.
On the bank of the River Coquet, you will also find the Medieval Hermitage (a 14th century chapel carved into the stone), hidden away on the South bank of the River Coquet and only accessible via a boat operated by English Heritage – well worth a visit!
The village itself has lots to offer, with a great range of boutique shops, art galleries, café’s, traditional pubs, a small village store for all your day to day needs, and a fabulous chocolaterie and pâtisserie café - Cabosse. The historic parish church of St Lawrence sits at the south end of the village overlooking the River Coquet and dates back to the 13th century.
From the village, you are literally minutes by car from the stunning Warkworth beach and golf course. Walk over the sandy dunes and explore one of the most popular stretches of Northumberland coastline. Walk to the neighbouring town of Amble to the south or the village of Alnmouth to the north, or simply enjoy the views of Coquet Island from your deck chair and have hours of seaside fun building your very own Warkworth ‘sand castle’ (without or without the children!).
Just outside the village, you can visit the award-winning Morwick Ice cream Parlour. Inside there is a little café or you can enjoy the sunshine and sit outside in the garden with your delicious ice cream. The kids will love the little playground there too! You can also pick up a tub of ice cream and fresh milk from the farm and enjoy this award-winning local produce back at your holiday cottage.
Great days out can be enjoyed in the nearby coastal town of Amble where you can take a boat trip around the RSPB reserve of Coquet Island, home to thousands of Puffins, eider ducks and the UK’s rarest seabird – the Roseate Tern. Plenty of seals can also be seen on rocks and in the water surrounding the island. Shop in the new harbour village which sells a variety of local produce, jewellery and crafts. The village of Alnmouth is just 4 miles up the coast from Warkworth and has a wonderful beach and golf course which is easily accessible from the main beachfront car park (small fee applies). Alnmouth has a lovely collection of independent shops, pubs and café’s that line the main road through the village.
