  • "We had a very happy time staying in Upper Alnbank."

    The property is decorated beautifully and equipped with everything you could possibly need for a 'home away from home' holiday. The set up is very dog friendly with a large hall to wipe down and remove the sand before heading up to the apartment. We are regular visitors to Alnmouth and we will be recommending Upper Alnbank as a great place to stay to friends and family. I am looking at dates already for a return visit!

    We are delighted you enjoyed your stay ….thanks for the very kind comments Property Owner

  • "A lovely property and we have stayed a few times."

    Very good facilities - I was delighted to see new sofa, it was much needed! Amazing location for beach walks and access to village. I would be very happy to recommend.

    Thanks for the feedback and we are pleased you enjoyed the new sofa. Sorry you didn’t find the property comfortable enough Property Owner

  • "We really loved staying in the property, the bedrooms were all comfy, the kitchen well stocked and the heated bathroom floors were a treat!"

    The location is excellent, with the beach just round the corner we really enjoyed our walks here, it helped we were lucky with the weather! The guest book was really helpful for cafe/restaurant suggestions, and we tried to fit in as many as we could (apologies for not adding our own entry, as we up the road before we remebered).

    Thanks for the positive review much appreciated Property Owner

  • "Our third time staying in this house and second in the upper apartment so you can draw your own conclusions from that!"

    It's pleasing that we can continue to stay here without the owner having hiked the rent unreasonably as some others seem to have done. We feel very home at home here. It is really spacious and comfortable, and unusually well-equipped. Parking now works well since the permit scheme was introduced.

    We are pleased you enjoyed your stay, we have tried to hold our prices as we realise everything seems to be going up these days. Hope you choose to stay with us again next year Property Owner

  • "It is lovely I do however have concerns about a two sided mortise lock in the main door This worries some that it can be locked from outside effectively locking those inside I."

    The property (from a fire risk perspective- also of one was unable to find keys on the inside in event of fire) A different lock would be safer It is lovely though

  • "Hello. Since my son moved to Newcastle we’ve enjoyed exploring the coast with regular holiday bookings."

    I’m looking for the ideal place to rent. I wish to complain. Firstly, there was a lot of noise from builders vehicles from 7.30am onwards each morning. Secondly, the plug in the first floor bathroom was jammed and the sink didn’t drain. I reported the plug to the owner and NCCC but nothing was done. I’d taken my 96-year-old mother for a short break and these problems were very distressing for her. Please will you offer compensation as we may well book accommodation again in Alnmouth or nearby? Peter Farmer

    We are genuinely sorry you had inconveniences during your stay, I'm afraid we have no control over building work taking place nearby. Regarding the sink issue and your request for compensation Im afraid that as you booked a short mid week break at a discounted rate there is simply no flexibility on costs. The plug was fixed by the cleaner as soon as she could get to the property. Property Owner

    The property was alot bigger than we were expecting and was finished to a high standard. Loved the bit in the welcome pack about the ww2 history of the street and building. Also the pictures of the renovation of the property were great.

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.
