Dinmont Cottage is a perfect place to stay with family or friends on a quiet spot in Shilbottle, located in between Alnwick and Alnmouth less than 4 miles away. With a lovely homely ambience throughout, the open plan kitchen/dining area is perfect for sharing stories and planning your trips in this social space.
Shilbottle has walks from the village with a great pub and award winning café around 300 yards. There is a good convenience store, pharmacy and a highly acclaimed Indian restaurant/takeaway only a short walk. Alnwick only a few minutes’ drive and is home to the famous castle used in Harry Potter where you can book broomstick lessons, and also home to the magnificent Water gardens where you can book a table at the fabulous Tree House restaurant, the largest in Europe.
Explore the cobbled streets with independent shops and bijoux cafés with something for all ages. Golf lovers will delight in the two courses close by; one being a fine 9-hole course adjacent to the beach and the other being a challenging 18-hole course at Foxton, enjoying panoramic views. Amble and Warkworth are nearby; Amble has a popular Sunday morning market where you can mix with the locals then browse in the little shopping pods on the harbour, perhaps have fish and chips or visit one of the little eating places on the harbour, or enjoy a boat trip round Coquet Island bird sanctuary. Warkworth Castle sits at the top of the hill, a pretty picture postcard village with nice cafés, friendly pubs and riverside walk.
Dinmont Cottage is an excellent choice for those seeking a homely base, allowing easy access to explore the beautiful Heritage coastline designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to the east, and the wild and captivating expanses of the heather-capped Cheviot Hills to the west. Bus routes to Alnwick and Newcastle are available nearby and the Sustrans Cycle Route is easily joined from the property. For a different type of day out, why not book a day return ticket from Alnmouth Station to Edinburgh, Durham, or York for a full day out exploring? Beach 5 miles. Pub 1 mile.
