  • "Splendid, clean, comfortable, well-equipped cottage with amazing views."

    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!

  • "Very comfortable holiday cottage."

    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.

  • "The cottage is the perfect cosy retreat with a wonderful view."

    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!

    The cottage was exactly as specified in the advert and the view out to sea, albeit a good mile from the cottage, was stunning. We would be happy to return to Jenny's Cottage in the future as we only touched the surface of Northumberland in our week away. We had no problem finding excellent restaurants.....recommended by the owner. A big Thankyou !!

  • "I really enjoyed my stay at Jenny’s Cottage."

    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.

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.
