Lovely cottage with a fabulous view. Thanks for all the welcome goodies. We enjoyed lots of great walks; Craster to Embleton via Dunstanburgh Castle, Bamburgh to Seahouses, Holy Island, Alnmouth and Warkworth beaches. We really liked the round walk from the cottage to visit to viaduct – thank you for the map etc. Our grand-dog, Penny, visited twice and gave the doggie facilities a big paws-up!

Tips from a local
Walk to the beach of course!
It’s approximately 33 minutes on foot to Alnmouth beach from Wildhope View (6 minutes in the car but don’t be lazy!), so get your walking boots or wellingtons on and start your journey.
On the way back to the cottage, why not swing by the excellent delicatesen Scott’s of Alnmouth on the main street of Alnmouth village and grab some goodies to nibble on back at the cottage? This newly renovated deli specialises in high quality local food – with some added luxuries – so treat yourself after that long walk!
Tips from a local
Visit Scott’s Deli
The jewel in the crown in Alnmouth is the newly opened Scott’s Deli. A delightful and refreshing addition to this gorgeous little village is the deli which serves an exciting mix of premium products as well as their fresh selection of cheeses, baked goods, deli sandwiches and much more. Any gin lovers should stop by here to admire the great selection of gins they have on offer, especially local ones too.
It is well recommended you stop by the deli during your stay in Alnmouth or anywhere close by, to pick up some tasty treats to take back to your cottage.
Tips from a local
Catch the train up to Edinburgh
You’re 6 minutes walk from the train station so why not make the most of your trip and head up to the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh. It’s 59 minutes from Alnmouth to Edinburgh and the journey itself is great, as the tracks run along the cliffs on the borders of Scotland so the views are to die for.
Edinburgh has a Christmas market that runs from the middle of November till after Christmas which is very popular for day-trippers, but it’s a great city for its culture and shopping all year round.
Tips from a local
Dine at The Whittling House
Newly opened in Alnmouth, The Whittling House is a delightful restaurant serving good food using Northumberland produce. It’s conveniently located on the main street of Alnmouth. The Whittling House is open every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We’d definitely recommend you book a table ahead of time to ensure your place.
Tips from a local
Visit one of the best wildlife spots in the North East
Hauxley Wildlife Discovery Centre based at Low Hauxley has one of the best wildlife watching spots in the North East, with plenty of birds to see. It is a lovely day out for the family with a nature trail around the reserve. Entry is free, with a small car parking charge. Facilities are available on site along with a café or bring a picnic and relax in the sunshine. Sorry no pet’s welcome.
