In the pretty, picturesque village of Alnmouth.
Tucked away off the main thoroughfare this compact hideaway cottage is a true delight.
With either two double bedrooms or a double bedroom and second upstairs sitting room, the cottage is within easy walking distance of the beach, the river estuary, a choice of pubs, restaurants, hotels and cafe. The local post office and gift shop are just around the corner, or enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of the cottage with a good book or two or even allow yourselves time to read the whole of the Sunday paper in a day!
Alnmouth, extremely popular in summer, retains its charm with narrow streets, numerous alleyways and footpath walks. The tidal river estuary is often awash with activity. Close at hand are both Foxton and Alnmouth Links golf courses and miles of glorious sandy beaches lie to the north and south. Follow the alleyway leading to the main village and walk to a different pub or restaurant each night - particularly recommended is the local cuisine at The Red Lion and enjoy a meal in front of their open fire!
Side entrance door leading to a small hall with space under the stairs for a dog bed and outdoor shoes.
Step up to the modern galley kitchen with pine-clad ceiling and fitted with electric cooker, gas hob, fridge/freezer, washing machine, microwave, radio and breakfast bar with stools.
The narrow living area, with sloping floor and two exposed natural soft brick walls, has a sofa and chairs, electric fire in traditional fireplace, TV, digi-box, DVD and CD player with a selection of DVDs, CDs and games. A cosy retreat after a day on the coast!!
