Tips from a local

The Red Lion Inn is a really traditional pub with the best atmosphere! They have embraced the classic style and retained its original features, which adds to the cosyness of the true Northumbrian pub. They have a lovely beer garden and a restaurant too and serve a good Sunday lunch. The pub quiz is great and takes place every Tuesday. Dogs can come too!

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. Scott’s of Alnmouth is a really up-market deli in the centre of the village which sells some gorgeous tasty nibbles, perfect for a picnic. Be sure to stop buy and pick up some treats before heading down to the beach.

Tips from a local

Treat yourself to an Afternoon Tea at The Cookie Jar in Alnwick. Dine within the stunning, historic building of the former Convent of Mercy, in the cosy and stylish bistro. There is a full menu option, but the Afternoon Tea in particular is divine and very reasonably priced too! The Cookie Jar has a real luxurious feel throughout, and the staff are very friendly and welcoming.

Tips from a local

Visit The Alnwick Garden and explore the fascinating poison garden and view the spectacular water cascade which takes centre piece of the gardens. The gardens are open all year round and is a fantastic day out for all ages.

Tips from a local

The cycle path from Alnmouth to Warkworth is very popular and around 4 miles long. This lovely route follows the coastline so pretty views are guaranteed at any time of year. Once you reach Warkworth you can always carry on to Amble harbour or enjoy a light lunch at Bertrams or local pint in one of the village beer gardens. A local bus service runs regularly if you were too tired to walk/cycle back.

Kathryn and Ross

Owners of Prudhoe Villa

We asked Kathryn and Ross what they love about Alnmouth and Prudhoe Villa:

“Northumberland holds very special memories as a regular annual holiday venue for both of us, our two boys and our (now) elderly dog Poppy. Over recent years we have showcased the fabulous stunning beaches and magnificent views along the coastline with wider family, with the numbers joining us increasing year on year. We landed upon Alnmouth one year by complete accident on one of our many bike rides, agreeing immediately to holiday there the next year and we have never looked back since. We fell in love with this special place.

We are now so lucky to offer others the chance to enjoy such a fabulous village, in a stunning house right on the estuary front. Renovating one of the original Victorian buildings in Alnmouth we have created a modern villa whilst being sympathetic to all the original features.

Prudhoe villa will work for everyone – for a family group of different generations, or just couples and friends holidaying together. The villa itself is so spacious, you can each feel like you have your own space, which is so important, especially when holidaying as a family with different age groups. Although there is precious parking on site, you don’t even need to get in the car when staying here, everything you could want is right here on your doorstep if you so choose.

Whatever the time of year there is no better feeling than time on the beach in Alnmouth, followed by a hearty pub lunch or picnic outside, then retiring back to snooze on the sofa or to sit and watch the world go by on the balcony.

We warmly welcome you to share a fabulous holiday in Alnmouth and wider Northumberland. “
