    The small courtyard garden was a lovely place to sit and relax with a cuppa. The welcome pack provided by the owners is exceptional, we have never seen such a range of items. The cottage is well situated for exploring the areas around Alnwick, Bamburgh, Warkworth, Cragside, and a host of other coastal villages, gardens and houses. We were a little disappointed to find the local pub is still closed but we did find a traditional pub in the village of Rennington, the Horseshoes. There are lots of places to eat in Alnmouth, but be warned, parking is very limited apart from the beach car park. The extra special touches for us were the phone calls with Sue, before we arrived and the day of arrival, this is a nice touch and shows great care for their customers.

A ‘post lockdown’ trip to enjoy Northumberland and esp the coast was brilliant. Although the Farne islands boat trip was on a rainy day we saw so much wildlife which also exceeded expectations.
