    “We enjoyed our stay in RBC.”

    We enjoyed the upstairs living room with the estuary views. The house is well enough equipped. We slept well. Alnmouth is a great base to explore the beautiful Northumberland coast. The house notes could have been more helpful re parking. We opted for the grassy verge on the road into the village from the bridge. Also the photo of the front entrance is dated which was a little confusing.
