Waterside View Cottage
Waterside View Cottage is one of a handful of properties on a private estate overlooking Alnmouth. With two spacious bedrooms and lounge, the property can comfortably sleep 6 people and is dog friendly too.
Designed to be a comfortable home from home, Waterside View Cottage has been furnished with carefully sourced antiques from the neighbouring town of Alnwick with style and comfort being of the highest priorities. We loved the old record player with a wicker basket full of records, the antiques chest in the heart of the living room which was home to the a traditional backgammon set, a distressed side table which was home to a selection of vintage binoculars and the gorgeous reading chair perfectly situated looking out of the lounge window.
Although the outdoor space isn't enclosed, it is very private and there is so much space for BBQ's or your children to run around. There are deckchairs, outdoor seating and BBQ's provided and I could not resist working outside for the day with a view like this!

My outdoor office
Absolutely everything is provided for your stay from a modern kitchen with dishwasher and washing machine, to comfortable beds and two wonderfully clean bathrooms with miniature toiletries. You can even order home-cooked local food to be delivered straight to your door or arrange a private chef during your stay via Taste of Northumberland.
One of the features we adored about Waterside View Cottage was the fact that the outside could be brought inside with a sliding door that you could fully open onto the outdoor terrace which was the perfect place to enjoy morning coffee in the sunshine.
Out and about
Alnmouth is a short 15 minute walk away or 2 minutes in the car. Here you will find a few friendly pubs, a nice selection of restaurants, tearooms and independent shops. We stopped for tea and cake at The Village Tearoom which is highly recommended. Lovely friendly service and delicious home cooked food.
The market town of Alnwick is less than 5 miles away where you will find some of the Country's top family attractions - Alnwick Castle, Alnwick Garden and Barter Books to name a few.
The fishing village of Amble is just a few miles South of Alnmouth and a lovely place to spend a few hours. A visit to their craft shops around the harbour and fish and chips are a must.
Finally, the chocolate box village of Warkworth is only 4 miles from Waterside View Cottage. Warkworth Castle is one of our favourites in the region - the views out to sea are impressive and there is always lots to explore.
We loved our stay at Waterside View Cottage and think it is a perfect base for a Northumberland break for families with school-aged children. Our top five highlights were:-
*Stunning sea views
*An abundance of space both inside and out in a private, quiet location*Easy access to the beach, Alnmouth and Northumberland
*A home from home atmosphere with everything provided
*Quirky antiques and talking points such as record players, chess sets and vintage sewing machines
