  • "Generally very clean, well presented, spacious and comfortable."

    Well situated for the beach and village. 3 things to note:- Listing states there is a log fire with initial fuel provided. There is no log-burning fire it is a gas stove. We brought logs and had to take them back home. The microwave in the kitchen was working but not revolving; this might just have been down to user error but should be looked at to see if it is a fault. There should be some smaller saucepans for the hob, only one huge doublehandled one and one other one supplied.

  • "Lovely house, kitchen area is limited for cooking for a lot of people but looking at the photos we sort of expected that."

    One of the drawers needs fixing. The en-suite downstairs had a strong drain smell when the upstairs were using their bathrooms. We were a group of photographers wearing waterproofs and boots, there was limited space to hang coats and somewhere to sit in the hall to put on boots would have been useful. Otherwise a good holiday property....thanks

  • "The house is lovely and we had a great time."

    Thank you! As the house is only used for holidays it is lacking a few details that could help make it feel more homely or be more practical: A bath shelf or table next to the lovely bath to put bath products, drink etc Kitchen essentials e.g salt, pepper, oil Bedside table and lamp for every bedside Some simple user instructions for the heating Some rugs to soften the hard floor, particularly during winter Door bell - as the living area is on a different floor to the front door we could not hear knocking on the door when our food was being delivered

  • ". It was disappointing to arrive at 5pm (which is a very late check-in time) to find the house hadn't been cleaned. We then tried calling the numbers on our booking form - one of which was out of order and the other was to a lady who no longer serviced the house"

    . We had to search for another number to contact somebody and then arrange for a cleaner to come urgently. This meant we could not unpack or go shopping, as had been planned. We were told to go out for a meal and charge this to Northumberland Coast and Country Cottages, which was helpful. However, we then had to use the Sunday morning to go shopping and felt we had lost a night and morning of our holiday time. The cleaners did a good job of making the beds and bathrooms clean and tidy, but the general cleanliness of the house was below standard. There was dust under beds, on the stairs, old socks and cloths behind bedside cabinets and furniture. The dishwasher needed a deep clean as the dishes smelled terrible so we had to handwash all of the dishes (which for 10 people was a lot of work). There were baby cots/highchairs/potties all over the house, with nowhere to store them out of the way. The wardrobes in the master bedroom were filled with boxes and bags so there was very little room to hang clothes, and most of the wardrobes in the bedrooms didn't have hangers so clothes had to folded and put wherever there was space. The outside area was full of cobwebs and the artificial grass had debris all over it - which considering this is the first impression of the house was really disappointing. We ended up sweeping and cleaning and hoovering so that the house was clean for our guests who we had invited to share the time with us. I am still waiting for the reimbursement of our meal and the housekeeping bond, so will need to take time today to contact the company again, as I would have thought this would have been dealt with by now. Overall, I have paid nearly £3,500 for a week that did not meet my expectations at all. A very disappointed customer.

    We were informed that cleaning that day was running behind due to staff shortage. We apologise for this. We have consequently discussed the issues raised and have been assured this will not be case going forward. Our agents also advised that a £150 refund was made to compensate for the cleaning issues and the inconvenience experienced. Property Owner

The property

Boasting simply stunning and incredibly spacious accommodation which has been finished to an impeccably high standard, Riverview resides in a tranquil setting on the fringes of beautiful Alnmouth in Northumberland and is the perfect property to host a big family holiday or get-together of family and friends.

The accommodation has been planned to maximise the mesmerising sea views which are visible on each of the three levels of the property, starting with the impressive first-floor open-plan living space which has a large seating area with a stove-effect fire and an elegant dining area, positioned in front of bi-folding doors opening onto a gorgeous balcony with stunning views.

This is a really sociable space and somewhere you can imagine gathering together to indulge in quality holiday time.

Even cooking is a sociable experience with the sleek, fully fitted kitchen adjoining the dining area and fully fitted with everything needed to produce delicious food for the holiday party.

If your guests are looking for a quieter space in which to chill out and relax, then there is a warm and welcoming sunroom on the ground floor which opens onto the gardens and is the perfect space for curling up with a good book and enjoying some quality ‘me’ time.

The outside space is just as well presented with an artificial grass area and a patio as well as a fantastic hot tub, all ready to welcome guests and encourage them to spend time alfresco.

When it’s time for bed, there are five stunning bedrooms to choose from; a super-king-size, a king-size, a double and two twins, so whatever combination of guests you have in your party there is a bedroom to suit.

All boast sumptuous beds waiting for you to sink into and offer a calming space to rest your weary heads after a tiring day at the beach.

In the morning, after a quick, refreshing dip in the shower or a long, relaxing soak in the gorgeous freestanding bath, you’re ready to get out and about exploring.

The attractive village of Alnmouth is on the doorstep as well as miles of sandy beaches and a golf course.

Hop in the car for a scenic drive to Alnwick which is known for its castle and gardens, or travel a little further and discover places to visit like Hadrian’s Wall, Howick Hall and Gardens, Dunstanburgh Castle and Northumberland Country Zoo.

If you love wildlife, then check out the RSPB reserves at Annstead Dunes and Hauxley Wildlife Discovery Centre or take a boat trip over to the Farne Islands where you might catch sight of a seal.

Boasting outstanding accommodation and beautiful views, a stay at Riverview promises to deliver an unforgettable holiday.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location

ALNMOUTH

Alnwick 4 miles.

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 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.
