  • "It was a delight to arrive at Jenny Cottage, with all its comforts and charm."

    ♡ The cottage was immaculate, and I could literally just move in - everything was there, and in place to help create the perfect stay.  From the shear luxury of the divine 4-poster bed, the excellent kitchen facilities to the wow bathroom with its airbath. :) The fresh ground coffee and delicious flapjacks were a thoughtful touch. ☆ The views were breathtaking and utterly captivating - catching the sunrise is a must. ○ As for Northumberland, it was the gift that kept on giving - return I must, for there is still so much wonder to enjoy. A BIG thank you to Catherine for being such a kind and welcoming host - it makes all the difference when solo travelling. May the rest of your year be kind.  Best wishes, Karen

    As a lone traveller I felt very relaxed and safe during my stay at the very lovely Jenny’s cottage. The family were on hand and very welcoming and I loved that it is situated on a working agricultural farm. The views across the fields to the sea were gorgeous. Lots of coastal walks on and by magnificent beaches. I will definitely return. Stella

  • "We had an absolutely delightful week at Jenny's Cottage."

    The property is beautiful, furnished and equipped to a high quality standard, with a fabulous view (especially through sunset) of Almouth and the sea from the (first-floor) sitting-room. There were lovely coastal waks, miles of unspoiled virtually empty beaches, and country walks only a relatively short car ride away - and countless places on interest slightly further afield - we especially enjoyed the castles, lovely pubs, and great "local" beer! Dorothy, the proprietor, and her team were very friendly and helpful. A great find!

    Very helpful, friendly owners. Re other comments: we had no difficulty with bath nor stairs (in our 70s), but did feel rather indulgent running so much hot water for a post walk bath! Another positive is fast wifi and smart tv. Excellently located for exploring the area. The only negative is the broken up tarmac drive to the properties. As the car is definitely needed every day, it is not ideal!

    Everything on hand for a comfortable stay. Lovely views from the upstairs lounge window. The owners helpful and friendly. Although the bath is a little over the top. Fortunately I’m quite tall, someone under 5’4” or not very agile would probably have some difficulty getting in and out, even for a shower! Someone with limited mobility would probably find the staircase a challenged too.

    It both inspired me to get out and about, and was a warm and relaxing place to return to at the end of the day. The bath is the biggest I have ever seen (and the hot water is endless) and the bed is the best I've slept in at any holiday cottage - besides the fact it is a beautiful four poster, it's extremely comfortable, the pillows were just right and the sheets were excellent quality. There is also a very comfy sofa to lie on and enjoy your view! The location is very peaceful, but also well-connected - Alnwick is 10 minutes away and can provide most needs, and Alnmouth is less than 10 minutes the other way and is a lovely little village with a great deli and a marvellous beach. The owners are on hand if you need anything, and are very helpful. Definitely one to return to!

    Dorothy and her husband were really friendly and brought me a pint of milk. The property was warm and welcoming so I instantly felt settled. The property itself isn’t in Alnmouth. This wasn’t an issue as it is very near the station (also not in Alnmouth) but maybe helpful to list it as being in Bilton. The front door stuck a bit but again that’s a very minor quibble. The facilities were really good (supremely comfy 4-poster bed, jacuzzi bath) and the views, especially from the living room, were to die for.

About the location


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.
