A great base for exploring an area totally new to us. Would unreservedly recommend this property and the town of Alnwick. Cannot fault the organisation or the facilities. Loved the belvedere!

Simone was very friendly and helpful and all was as described. Everything worked!! The cottage is in a fabulous location with so much to do and see in the area. Almouth is a charming town with 2 wonderful dog-friendly beaches, some good pubs/restaurants/ tea rooms offering above-average food, an interesting art gallery and a terrific 9-hole golf course- something for everyone!
