Remote retreat commanding spectacular views across the Coquet Valley.

Perched on a slight incline to command spectacular uninterrupted views across the stunning Coquet Valley, Poppy’s Cottage offers a truly rural escape.The property has undergone a full makeover to offer homely self-catering accommodation in a breathtakingly beautiful part of the Northumberland National Park.
The spacious lounge focuses upon a cosy wood-burning stove; idyllic to snuggle in front of and watch the flames dance if you can bear to take your eyes away from the magnificent far-reaching views the large picture window affords. The large kitchen is well equipped and there is the added convenience of a separate dining room too. A fresh and contemporary shower room completes the ground floor. There are three immaculately presented bedrooms on the first floor along with a family bathroom.
Poppy’s Cottage is one of a pair which stands alone in the tranquil Upper Coquet valley. Once home to the local shepherd the property now offers a relaxing retreat from which to rest and refresh in a peaceful and unique location. A friendly welcome greets visitors to a quaint tea-room serving excellent home-made food a further mile or so up the valley; a perfect destination to refresh after a stroll to inhale the invigorating fresh air that surrounds this adorable cottage.

    This is the second time we have stayed at Poppy's Cottage and we would go back again. Johnny and Hilda, the owners, are very friendly without being obtrusive. We had everything we needed. The cottage is very clean and comfortable and the views are stunning. Great holiday.

    We had a great holiday at Poppy's, especially enjoying the peace and quiet with only the sounds of sheep or birds to wake you on a morning. The house had everything you needed and we really enjoyed the cake and jam made by Hilda. The wifi was a bit random and there is no mobile signal but we did not find it a problem and was surprised to find the 2 teenagers in our party didn't either! There is a landline and Hilda is only next door. The views were stunning and we enjoyed walks from the doorstep as well as the wildlife, we saw deer, a heron family, ducks, many garden birds, an owl in the tree in front of the window and bats on an evening. It was also fun to watch the farmers rounding up the sheep, we had no idea how the sheep managed on those steep hills!! We would certainly stay there again........THANK YOU Hilda and Johnny

    Poppys cottage was a very idyllic holiday location being a few miles up a single track lane in the beautiful hills of Northumberland. The location was peaceful and quiet with only the sheep, river and birdsong to listen to. How wonderful it was to wake up to only the sounds of nature! Inside, the cottage was clean, well equipped and warm with ample space for all and as the owners live next door, we were taken very good care of. As with all such cottages, there was no mobile phone signal although a landline was available and the internet access was erratic but that was no problem with such fantastic views. This was the second time we have visited Poppys cottage and can honestly say that it is above the normal standard for holiday property.

    If your idea of a great holiday is bright lights, hustle & bustle, close to a beach and having super fast broadband, then Poppys Cottage is not for you. However, if you like wide open sky's full of stars, rolling hills of sheep & beautiful vista's then it is. Fantastic position, super clean and so cosy even though it blew a gale most of the week. Even the teenager in our group wasn't bothered about the intermittent WiFi as much time was spent at the river or climbing hills. Only small niggle was that the mattresses were really hard.
