  • Beverley

    “Not as shown in photo, grass area in front of property is a large building site,noisy and no view, just houses and building equipment, so had to go out everyday.”

    Five key safes without labels so difficult to find right one when we arrived,faulty lock on communal front door, unable to use family bathroom as floor swollen so door jammed open, broken toilet seat, some of showers not working,surface coming off kitchen pans and plates, broken kitchen bin. Not happy should have looked at the Tripadvisor reviews as apparently an ongoing problem. Not the holiday we thought

About the location

ALNMOUTH

Alnwick 4 miles.

Situated just 4 miles east of Alnwick, Alnmouth is a charming resort popular with golfers and those seeking a peaceful holiday. The village lies on a narrow spit of land between the River Aln and the North Sea and was originally the port for Alnwick. Nowadays the area has returned to its unspoilt origins and offers a good variety of shops, pubs and restaurants as well as an excellent “links” golf course and some great rivers for fishing, as well as boasting miles and miles of splendid beaches and sand dunes to explore which afford stunning views of the North Sea. A short drive will bring you to Alnwick with its famous historic castle, The Alnwick Garden housing the Poison Garden which runs guided tours through dangerous botanicals and a variety of pubs and restaurants. Alnmouth is well situated for exploring Northumberland.
