This page contains information to help you plan your visit to the Cottage at Coquet Meadows, and describes the layout of the cottage so any mobility or vision aspects can be considered. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to ask.
A description of the cottage facilities can be found on the main page for the Cottage.
There are two steps down and one step up to the main door or a path to the side with one step up. Once inside the cottage everything is on the same level.
The nearest train station is at Alnmouth where you can hire a taxi or catch a bus that will drop you at Beal Bank and then a short walk to the Cottage (there is a sign at the end of the drive).
Parking is on site directly outside of the cottage. The access drive is shared with two other houses and there is an alternate access point from the end of the road at Beal Croft over an area which is gravel. This point of access is the preferred access way for walking.
The lighting is good and you park on a level tarmac base directly by the cottage. There is dusk to dawn lighting at the front door and by the side wall to the cottage.
