  • "Very basic facility."

    Car parking a nightmare in the village. Need a new bread knife,… couldn’t cut butter! Position in village not good for dog owners.

    We think we have provided the flat with what is needed for a weeks holiday, I am sorry if we missed something. Thankyou for the tip about the bread knife, we will check out all the knives and replace as necessary. As long time Alnmouth residents without private parking we do recognize that parking in the village can be frustrating for those who are used to having their vehicle within the curtilage of their property but we find that it is always possible to find a space somewhere and are happy to advise on the best places to look for a spot. Not sure about the comment about the position in the village for dog owners, but thank you for not leaving your dog in the flat by himself again, he really wasn't happy and was quite vocal about it.

  • "A lovely place to stay, convenient location and an added bonus of a small outdoor space with a view of the sea."

    Fantastic place for wildlife enthusiasts and a brilliant bus and train service to lots of locations including Edinburgh which was a short train journey away making my stay ‘ green ‘. Also a lovely touch with flowers, wine and chocolates on arrival. Will definitely return!

  • "Very comfortable apartment with everything we needed."

    We loved the open plan layout and the small outside terrace. Clean and well heated, would also be good for a winter break. Would be our first choice should we decide to return to Alnmouth

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.
