  • "The cottage is listed as "pet free but past pets may have been had"."

    We found dog hairs on the carpet and a dog bowl under the sink. Also the join between the seats on the sofa was full of old crumbs etc and could do with a good clean. The bed is extremely large and creaks when you turn over. Maybe a smaller bed frame would be more beneficial in that room. The parking could do with sorting out as lots of cars go up and down that little roadway for parking further down, or even a pre-paid spot at one of the pubs so that you can get a parking spot without having to drive numerous times around the village. Other than that the cottage was excellent for a stay. Alnmouth is beautiful and we've loved it for years. Unfortunately due to the above it's doubtful we will return to this lovely cottage which is a shame as the location and facilities etc is perfect

  • "I don’t think the listing does the place justice."

    The cottage is fabulous, extremely clean and comfy and well stocked ( especially kitchen ) Bathroom has a lovely shower and heated floors. Very comfy bed and a cot was placed in our bedroom upon request. Cottage right in heart of Alnmouth and although no parking bay, we managed to obtain free parking very close by on every occasion. Would certainly recommend this cottage.

  • "We thought Five Bells was a delightful cottage, ideally located for exploring the coast and surrounding area."

    The cottage itself was very well equipped - the owners had thought of (almost) everything. We weren’t expecting a roll of kitchen towel and we were told by Sykes to bring our own tea towel, but this was also supplied. The Nespresso machine along with capsules was a lovely touch. We were also greeted with a box of shortbread, milk and two bottles of beer. The only omission is that the cottage does not have its own recycling bin, but when I spoke to a neighbour about this she kindly said we could use hers. Incidentally Alnmouth does not recycle glass so you will need to take this home or drive to a recycling bank. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was amazing. We couldn’t fault the cleanliness of the whole cottage. A previous reviewer mentioned the parking and this is definitely something guests who are thinking about staying at Five Bells should consider. The cottage itself has no parking and we had to park illegally upon our arrival to unload. My partner then drove off to find somewhere to park and was some distance away. This didn’t bother us as we are active people but might be an issue for some. Alnmouth is a very popular place and parking is at a premium. When we had days where we used the car we made sure to stay out until between 5 and 6 pm to have a better chance of getting re-parked, which we always managed, but only just on one night. We did not dine in the Indian Restaurant in Alnmouth, as the night we thought about it, the restaurant was completely empty (never a good sign) and upon checking the reviews they were not good. We can highly recommend Mumbai in Alnwick - very reasonably priced and fantastic food.

  • "We had a lovely 5 night stay in this comfortable and very well equipped cottage."

    It truly exceeded our expectations . It was spotlessly clean , freshly decorated and warm during a cold spell.The bed and pillows were especially comfortable and the shower is very good. We appreciated the milk and beers in the fridge and the Nespresso coffee pods. Thank you. We had everything we needed, apart from small things like salt ( now supplied) , a vegetable peeler and a bath mat. The cottage is in a fabulous location on a quiet cobbled lane but very close to a beautiful beach, a handy shop and good pubs etc. Parking was ok for us , but might possibly be tricky during busier times. We’d definitely stay again if we were fortunate enough to be in this wonderful part of the country. We did think that the access and evacuation times set by Sykes were a bit unreasonable post Covid.

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 which afford stunning views of the North Sea. A short drive will bring you to Alnwick with its famous historic castle, The Alnwick Garden housing the Poison Garden which runs guided tours through dangerous botanicals and a variety of pubs and restaurants. Alnmouth is well situated for exploring Northumberland.
