About Christine Storey

Our families are joint owners of Midwood Lodge and Cottages. We are the Storey and Sweeney families and we love sharing the property with guests and try to make it a home from home. We like to leave a lovely welcome pack for guests to enjoy and provide tea and coffee.

We personally have wonderful memories of seeing our own children grow up and have fabulous photographs of children playing football on the beach and beautiful village scenes through the seasons.

Christine Storey purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Christine Storey chose Alnmouth

We love the village of Alnmouth and the privacy that this property gives with lots of outdoor space and parking which is rare in the village. The huge garden is such a pleasure as we both live close to the city and have tiny city gardens. The tree house is wonderful for children to play in. We have a big shed which guests can use for storing bikes and walking gear.

What makes this cottage unique

It is lovely for families as it is all on one level and we have lots of awards including:

Families Welcome, Walkers Welcome, Cyclists Welcome

We have awards for family friendly, with indoor and outdoor games. We also have our own Tarzan swing in the garden as well as a wonderful tree house.

A little gem

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is beautifully presented, with loads of yummy goodies. An ideal base for visiting some of the most famous and beautiful places in Northumberland, such as Hadrians Wall, Holy Island, Bamburg Castle, Alnwick Castle and Gardens, Cragside, Howick Hall Gardens and wonderful walks taking in some of the glorious sandy beaches such as Warkworth and Bedle Bay. For such a small village, Alnmouth packs a punch for its charm and pubs providing excellent food. The pride that Christine and Louise have for Midwood shows in every way, and rightly so.

Comfortable & Well Equipped Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Great central location for exploring the coast and Alnwick. Great pub (Sun) is an easy crawl down the road in the town.

Copious information provided for all aspects: getting there; how equipment works; where to visit; where to eat; etc. Owners made personal friendly contact.

Much better experience than the norm...idea for a romantic duo.
