5/5 Excellent

Perfect location
Lovely accommodation of a high standard.

4/5 Good

Love Alnmouth and its never ending beaches. House location wonderful, house small bt very good. Suggest it is not suitable for elderly folk(we are 85 and 84) as the stairs are awkward to negotiate and the slippery shower floor necessitates that there should be a bar to hold on to

5/5 Excellent

Gorgeous hideaway on the main street
We loved everything about this property and will definitely be back. The property is beautifully decorated and furnished and hidden away from the high street in its own private yard so the best of everything.

5/5 Excellent

Relaxing break
The property was beautiful. It is perfectly situated in alnmouth. The host was really great at communicating and really helpful. The property has everything you need and is well equipped with all mod Comms. The house was tidy and well presented. This is a good base if you are wanting to explore Northumberland and a lovely place to find a retreat from everyday life

5/5 Excellent

Fabulous holiday
This cottage was fantastic in every way. The location was so convenient and close to a vast beach. There was every mod con in the cottage which was comfortable and homely and we were blessed with beautiful weather which allowed us to clock up many miles on the fantastic cycle routes round and about Alnmouth. We will return!
