Alnmouth is a picturesque village nestled between the Aln Estuary and the beach with its stunning stretch of golden sand.   The amazing views are thrown in for free and you’ll find life here is relaxed and friendly – just like us! The village has everything you’d want and need for a thoroughly enjoyable stay!


The Medieval market town of Alnwick is packed with things to do. Wander around the local shops in the town centre; browse through Barter Books – the world’s largest second hand book store; or learn about the history of Alnwick at Bailiffgate Museum.  

The stunning Alnwick Castle with its stately rooms and The Alnwick Garden, the world’s most contemporary garden, are both well worth a visit!


Northumberland’s beautiful coastline is blessed with some of the most spectacular golf links, located amidst stunning and dramatic scenery, and we have two of them right here on our doorstep in Alnmouth!

The 9 hole Alnmouth Village Golf Course is the oldest in England, whilst the 18 hole Alnmouth Golf Course, Foxton is reputedly one of the finest in the North of England.We have a course to suit every level from beginner to expert and most are available to pay and play with minimal waiting times. Green fees start at £15 per round and there are also a number of driving ranges where you can practice your swing.


Also known as ‘Holy Island’, this historical island is filled with unspoiled beauty.  The south is home to the stunning 16th Century Castle and Priory and why not try the world famous Lindisfarne Mead.  The north of the island is a conserved area of natural and historical splendour.  As the Island is reached via a causeway, don’t forget to check the safe-crossing times before setting off.


It’s hard to forget the sight of the imposing Bamburgh castle that dominates the skyline of both the beach and the village.  It’s had its fair share of invasions by Vikings and our friends over the border in times gone by.  As well as a visit to the castle, a picnic on the stunning beach is always recommended or wander through the beautiful village and stop for a little refreshment.  


There’s more to the home of the famous ‘Craster Kipper’ than you may think.  Bird spotting at the Arnold Memorial Nature Reserve will guarantee you see something rare. Or take a walk along the shoreline to the ruins of romantic Dunstanburgh Castle or perhaps just sit back overlooking the harbour and watch the fishing boats coming in with an ice-cream.


This colourful fishing village is well worth a visit. A saunter along the harbour or the pristine sands is enough to relax anyone, along with a browse at the local shops and a pint at the friendly inns! Regular boat trips around the Farne Islands are available where a vast range of birds can be spotted along with grey seals and maybe the odd dolphin or two!  


The beautiful ancient village of Warkworth is packed with history with Warkworth Castle towering over one end and the Church of St Lawrence at the other. You can also row across the River Coquet to the Hermitage – a 14th century chapel hewn from the rock face which is a must see or walk along the river.


Take a boat trip from Seahouses harbour to the Farne Islands to see the magnificent wildlife. From grey seals to puffins, it’s both an enjoyable and informative day out. The boat trips run all year but are dependent upon weather conditions.
