Tips from a local
Head into Alnmouth Village to The Old School Gallery and view the stunning exhibitions of local artists, have a browse around the gift shop, and relax with a tea or Illy coffee and slice of cake in the cosy cafe.
Tips from a local
Have a chilled day on Alnmouth Beach. Take a picnic hamper, flask of tea, bucket and spade and kite and enjoy a traditional seaside afternoon on the stunning Northumberland coastline.
Tips from a local
Head up to Barter Books in Alnwick (about 3 1/2 miles from the cottage) which is an old Victorian train station converted into the most fabulous bookstore, about 10 minutes’ walk from the cottage. Every book you can imagine is here, even some very valuable first additions on display. They have a lovely café converted from the old waiting rooms in the station if you wanted a nibble and something hot to drink.
As the name suggests, you can bring old books into Barter Books and exchange them for credits so you can buy something new (or old!) to take home. Pick a good book and get settled in front of one of their many open fires. Dogs and snoozing welcome!
