The upper drawing room, with Peruvian furniture was stunning, with lovely views to the old square. Also, the private garden at the rear was a delight to sit in.

The house is beautiful and very well equipped. Plenty of room for a large family. Excellent customer service; the owner informing us of the restriction in Alnwick Castle before we arrived so we could taylor our schedule around it. The pubs in Alnmouth are very friendly; the food in The Sun and Red Lion is wonderful and the quiz great fun. The house is literally 2 mins from the beach and is spectacular. We watched the sunrise and the sunset over the water, played games and had bar-b-ques. We also went to Kielder Observatory, Edinburgh, hired bikes to ride the coastal paths and river kayaked from Warkworth. We can thoroughly recommend all of these things. Mike from Adventure Northumberland river Kayaking was great. We had an excellent time playing games in the water, traversing the weir and laughing all the way - we will definitely repeat this. Do not forget Alwick and Barter books, plus the food festival was also on the weekend we arrived. Lindores is a perfect base in a wonderful area. Thoroughly recommended - we will be back as there is so much more to see.
