The village of Alnmouth, on the Northumberland coast, lies on the banks of the River Aln Estuary and is easily recognisable by its brightly coloured houses. The village and surrounding area provides an excellent base for your cottage on the Northumberland coast.
The curved beach just to the north is sandy and uncrowded and great for families, offering up stunning scenery and of course there’s a wealth of culture and history along this whole coastline that’s just waiting to be explored.
Active types can enjoy sailing and a range of other watersports at the sheltered harbour, or head off on the Coast and Castles cycle route for some absolutely breathtaking views. Golf is available and visitors will find the golf club here provides excellent facilities.
If you come in October enjoy a tipple at the local Beer Festival or at any time of the year explore the neighbouring coastal villages that stretch north and south. The historic town of Alnwick is just inland; don''t miss Alnwick Castle for a great family day out.
For a spooky evening out, why not dine at the 17th century Schooner Hotel; it''s reputedly haunted, or you could head back to your cosy cottage and enjoy a relaxing evening in with a delicious home-cooked meal made with fresh local produce.
