  • "The Bothy is a lovely place; warm, cosy and very clean and tidy."

    Estelle and Gill were warm and welcoming, the perfect hosts and were kind enough to forward something we left behind. The setting is perfect it is quiet with a lovely view and plenty of wildlife to spot, especially good for bird watching. Alnmouth is a great little village, "The Bothy" makes an ideal base to explore the Northumbrian coast and castles. The vast beaches are just perfect. We would definitely love to go back.

  • "The Bothy is up the hill to the left at the roundabout, past School House Gallery, as you enter Alnmouth."

    It has dedicated parking and sleeps two people. The situation is excellent for walking (long or short), near the shops, pubs, restaurants and beaches. It is peaceful and the views are beautiful. A relaxing place to be as well as a base for activities in the area. It is also well equipped with thoughtful design features which the owners are always seeking to improve. We will return!

  • "What can I say about The Bothy that I haven't already said before!"

    (Aug 2020 testimonial) Tucked away on Mount Pleasant it is an absolute little gem of tranquillity but only a very short walk into Alnmouth. It provides a couples paradise and should be listed under "cottages with outstanding views"(if not already). The Bothy is extremely well maintained and parking is an added bonus. Outstanding location, view, cleanliness and welcome. Highly recommended!

  • "Fantastic location within walking distance of Alnmouth village and beach."

    Beautifully clean property with everything you could need and very helpful owners who provided lots of extras to make it a memorable stay. I would definitely recommend The Bothy

  • "A very friendly welcome but also lots of privacy in this beautiful, natural setting overlooking the Aln."

    Everything was there that we needed and we wished we had been able to stay longer. We had very poor weather and so it was important for us to come back to such a cosy and welcoming place. Would love to visit again in better weather and enjoy the patio and views.

  • "This property exceeded our expectations."

    As a new addition we were extremely impressed with it and intend to stay here again (potentially every time we holiday in Alnmouth!), so I don't want to write too good a review in case it gets booked up!! Seriously though, it deserves a great review, and the owners were lovely and couldn't do enough for us (but weren't intrusive), the balance was just right. The panoramic views from The Bothy were just fantastic, there was parking at the property (a MUST for us in Alnmouth), and the inside of it has a very comfortable and cottagey vibe with great attention to detail, everything spotless and well-maintained/new that reflects the effort and enthusiasm of the owners. There were beautiful well maintained hanging baskets and flowers & plants outside as well as solid, robust garden furniture. The owners provided a delightful Welcome pack on arrival and even enquired about our fave tipple on a pre-arrival phone call. Can't give enough praise to The Bothy and it's owners!

  • "The Bothy is a lovely place!"

    The location is excellent: a great balance between countryside and proximity to the village centre (with its great pubs, shops and beautiful beach). The cottage itself is comfortable and well equipped, and we'll hope to return!

  • "The Bothy cottage was in the perfect place for sheer peace and quiet."

    It had beautiful panoramic views, which we enjoyed watching all the wildlife on an evening while sat on the patio, including deer, umpteen species of birds. We were lucky enough to be able to see 4 barn owlettes stretching their wings each evening, amazing. Estelle and Jill were amazing, attentive hosts. We will be recommending The Bothy to our friends.
