Perfect!
Midwood Cottage was perfect for our stay. The property was well equipped, very clean, very nicely furnished & in a quiet location. Having a lovely garden to sit out in and a parking space was great - both rare for holiday lets in Alnmouth. The host Christine was excellent with communications & provided lots of helpful information about places to visit, eat etc. There were lovely additional personal touches on arrival & a thoughtful welcome tray which was much appreciated & made us feel welcome! I can't praise the host or recommend the property highly enough.

Wonderful holiday cottage
This lovely little cottage is so cosy yet with plenty of space and storage and the huge bonus of private off street parking and a lovely garden. We simply had a lovely time, especially after such a turbulent year this was definitely the relaxing break we needed. Alnmouth itself is a really nice little place to be in and it is well situated for travelling to other popular area's. Christine was brilliant from the get go with lots of information and helpful advice. When we arrived we were surprised with a bottle of prosecco and a homemade cake. The only slight mar was the hangovers......and we really have no-one but ourselves to blame for that!! Would 100% stay again and 100% recommend to others.

A credit to the owners
I had a fantastic stay at Midwood Cottage, it was like a home from home. The cottage is immaculate and very welcoming and the arrival gifts of beer and cake were an extra bonus! It's a great location too; I caught the train to Alnmouth station and the cottage is only a 15 minute walk from there and the hourly bus service from Newcastle to Alnwick stops right outside. The beautiful Alnmouth beach is less than a 10 minute walk and there are other great walks nearby too including the coast path and river walks. Alnmouth itself is a nice, relaxing place to be and offers some good pubs. After a day's walking it was lovely to be able to return to a cosy cottage which was a credit to the owners. Thanks Christine and Louise!

Beautiful cottage perfect location
This beautiful little cottage is very well dcorated and presented to a high standard. Has loads of room fro off street private parking which is rare in this village. The garden is large and goes right round the side giving ample space to follow the sun which sets on the back so is perfect for sitting out late into the evening. Cottage loaction is a teeny walk to the main street which offers loads of choicefor drinks and meals. beach really is just a short walk. The village itself is close to main attractions such as Alnwick castle and gardens which we love. Also Howick Hall gardens and woodland. Amble is just 5 miles away with the best fish and chips in the north ( they also do battered haggis which is devine) also Dolly and Daisy's tea room is well worth a visit. I would highly recomend this property for it's picturesque setting, beatiful decor, clenliness and locality. A perfect holiday home we have booked a return visit.

Midwood Cottage
We enjoyed a lovely week at Midwood Cottage. The cottage was clean, cosy and well furnished, with everything we could have needed - and the cake and Prosecco awaiting us was very well received! The cottage was a great base for exploring the wonders of Northumberland, with a fabulous beach, restaurants and deli on the doorstep. Thank you for a lovely stay - I’m sure we’ll be back!

About the neighbourhood
Alnmouth is a peaceful and relaxing village by the sea on the Northumberland coastline. It has stunning, unspoilt beaches and is the ancient sea port for the historical town of Alnwick which is 4 miles away. The medieval castle in Alnwick was featured as 'Hogwarts' in the recent Harry Potter movies. Whilst Alnwick Gardens is one of the most exciting contemporary gardens in the world. The Northmberland Heritage Coastline has been designated an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' and offers fantastic coastal walking.
