This property is ideally situated only a couple of minutes from the beach and from the pubs and restaurants on the main street. The owner has clearly put a lot of effort into making sure everything is just right, with the kitchen and bathrooms being very high quality and well equipped. The property was very clean on our arrival.

“Gorgeous apartment in a beautiful place.”
Reviewed June 23, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We love Northumberland, especially Alnwick and the surrounding areas. Alnmouth is the perfect place to stay for a relaxing beach and country getaway.

The apartment is exceptionally well finished with all the creature comforts you could require and a lot of open plan space to spend time eating and relaxing with friends and family. It's a stone's throw from the beach and 2mins drive to train station, 5mins drive to Alnwick. We took the train to Edinburgh for the day, which only takes an hour and cost £7.50 return for an advance ticket. There's also a great barbecuing area in the park near the boats and estuary. The local shop also has a deli counter with nice home made sandwiches and cakes.

Must sees in the area are: Barter Books in Alnwick, which is a huge second hand book shop inside the disused railway station that also has a fantastic cafe serving lovely food; Bamburgh Castle; boat trip to the Farne Islands from Seahouses and fish&chips from Neptune (other than that Seahouses isn't that nice, but the beaches between it and Bamburgh castle are great); Lindisfarne with a trip to Pilgrims Coffee for excellent coffee and brilliant crab sandwiches; Cragside – bit of a drive, but totally worth a full day's visit; Morwick Dairy and Spurreli's for ice cream; and loads more we have yet to see including Alnwick Castle and gardens.

P.S. On the way up there from Yorkshire we stop off at the Barbour factory outlet in Jarrow, South Shields which can be great for bargains.

“Well equipped and good holiday flat”

Whilst not on the front and therefore there is no sea view, the flat has everything you need and is only around the corner from the beach, which is very nice and clean. Alnmouth has some good pubs and restaurants, and the coastal walk (St Oswalds Way) is very easy to get to. A good spot for Alnwick Castle and Cragside. Both excellent day out.

“Perfect relaxing getaway”
Reviewed May 13, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

person found this review helpful

We stayed here in May 2012, (two couples) and had a perfect relaxing holiday.
The apartment itself is spacious and luxurious.
The kitchen is better equipped than ours at home!
The bedrooms are beautifully decorated and have stunning views of the estuary, as does the living room.
The bathrooms have been finished to the highest standard, and the roll top bath was very impressive.
We brought our car but you could easily manage without as the train station is literally a couple of minutes away.
The apartment is situated just a very short walk to the beach/pubs/restaurants.
There are a couple of golf courses very close by (1 within walking distance), and the village itself has not been spoilt by commercialism and has has retained its natural charm.
We really had a truly relaxing stay!

“Luxurious, high specification rental property with real character.”

I recently booked this property for a short stay with a group of friends for a Murder Mystery party reunion. We arrived and were extremely pleased with this outstanding property in the pleasant little town of Alnmouth.

Upon arrival we were astonished at the high level of finish. Set out over two levels, the property was sparkling clean, stylishly decorated with perfect taste. The lounge and kitchen were beautiful, with comfy sofas and chairs, plenty of room for a big group to relax, chill out and just enjoy the place. With high-speed wireless internet, iPod docking stations in every room and a modern flat screen television, this was the perfect retreat for a young group of friends.

The kitchen was equipped with everything you might need and more, with dishwasher, lots of space, all the utensils and crockery you could imagine you might need and a breakfast bar area, perfect for spreading out and for everyone to dig in and help out with getting dinner ready. The open, airy and bright lounge, with its deeply soft sofas, large dining area and views round the corner to the sea and little boats was a perfect setting to watch the sun set over the sea. The bedrooms were tastefully decorated, with high quality beds, furniture, lovely furnishings and lots of little touches. What stood out for me the most was the bathrooms - huge, open showers with rain shower heads; heated bathroom floors, large towel rails and an expensive finish; soft towels, big mirrors and plenty of storage space; beautiful, contemporary design and lots of hot water to warm us up during a wintery visit.

In short, if you are looking for a spacious, luxurious escape to a lovely little village with a surprisingly wide choice of pubs, a post office, quaint little shops and stretches of sandy shores and unspoilt coast, then this property is for you. Ideally located one street from the beach, Upper Alnbank goes that extra mile to make sure your stay is comfortable, relaxing and special.
