  • "Very high standard of accommodation, particularly considering dog-friendly too!"

    Lovely views from the lounge and small bedroom.

  • "There was a lot of building work going on to the house where the flat was."

    The house was covered in scaffolding and with the skips being outside, this took up three potential parking spaces. The builders started early and were noisy throughout the day. We were not warned of this disruption either at the time of booking or before we arrived at the property which we feel was wrong.

  • "We spent a lovely Easter weekend at ‘A Stone’s Throw’ - the facilities were exactly as described."

    Such a great location, especially our four legged friend, just cross the road and down the steps to the beach.

  • "The owners were very accommodating allowing early entry to the property due to the rail strikes."

    The facilities team and Jill in particular were extremely kind and most helpful especially when we managed to lock ourselves out of the property on Xmas Eve! The property was very warm and the kitchen was especially well stocked for equipment and glasses etc. The property had ample space for a family of five and dog and very conveniently located for access to the beach.

  • "We have just had a 4 day break in the lovely ‘A Stones Throw’ apartment which was lovely."

    It had 3 spacious bedrooms, a fabulous master bedroom. There was a very well equipped kitchen a lovely large dining room which was big enough to accommodate a family comfortably. Very well decorated, clean and the owners have provided lots of dvd’s, books and games as well as access to Netflix for those cold/rainy days and bowls and towels for our four legged friends which was a nice touch. Only one slight criticism, there was some mould around the bath and in the on-suite shower room which reduced my score, apart from that we had a really lovely relaxed break in a lovely village thank you

  • "A very clean and pleasant apartment which is in a very good location."

    We had a slight problem finding it and some locals guided us there, as its further up the hill and around the corner than we thought. The apartment is well stocked with utencils- dishwasher tablets and washing poda we're provided. Thankyou for the milk and scones! There was a bit of a problem with getting hot water in the bath, so had to carry it from the kitchen for my young granddaughter. Also one of the single mattresses needs replacing. The twin room is a bit small for two adults, but we managed and enjoyed our stay.

  • "Better than expected."

    All well thought out and comfortable apart from one of the single bed mattresses which was sagging. Alnmouth is lovely and A Stones Throw. is in a beautifull position we enjoyed it so much.Booked to return next year before we left!

  • "It is a lovely, well equipped apartment in a quiet street with plenty of space for 5 people."

    We loved it. It was let down unfortunately by the daily noise from the building work going on in the house directly at the back of the property plus the lack of privacy this caused (the main bedroom window faces onto the property). We couldn't have the windows open very often and, given the heatwave we've just had, this wasn't ideal. The building work also meant the windows were really dirty too.

  • "This is our third stay at Stone's Throw and we have already booked again for next summer."

    It is spacious, well appointed and super handy for the beach and main street with all the restaurants and bars.

    We are delighted that you enjoyed another stay at A Stone’s Throw, and that you will be returning next year! Thank you for your lovely feedback Property Owner

  • "Lovely apartment, very well equipped and well furnished."

    The beds are extremely comfortable! It's in an ideal spot for exploring the Northumbria coast, both on foot and by car, as well as for venturing inland. Alnwick is only 3 miles away and has a good selection of shops, plus a good retail park with supermarkets if needed. Alnmouth itself is beautiful with a great selection of pubs, restaurants and tea rooms.

  • "The apartment is in an ideal location being so close to the beach."

    The only problem is the parking as it does not have its own parking space which means that you have to rely on the free roadside parking spaces and these parking spaces are quickly taken so that using the car during the day can lead to you driving around playing "hunt the parking space" when you return.

    Sock found under the double bed when we arrived. Duvet for single room needs replacing - filling all hunched up with big gaps.

About the location

ALNMOUTH

Situated just 4 miles east of Alnwick, Alnmouth is a charming resort popular with golfers and those seeking a peaceful holiday. The village lies on a narrow spit of land between the River Aln and the North Sea and was originally the port for Alnwick. Nowadays the area has returned to its unspoilt origins and offers a good variety of shops, pubs and restaurants as well as an excellent “links” golf course and some great rivers for fishing, as well as boasting miles and miles of splendid beaches and sand dunes to explore.
