Holiday Home in Alnmouth, Alnwick, Northumberland
About the area
Two minutes walk from the house to Alnmouth's stunning beach. The many towns and villages dotted around Alnmouth span a scale of contrasts from cosy coastal hamlets to remote hillside locations. Amble is a traditional fishing port with a modern marina and interesting seafront. You can sail a yacht from Amble or one of the many other harbours and inlets on the coast. Windsurfing, water ski-ing and diving among the wrecks off the Farne Islands are also popular.
Foxton Hall Golf Club is only 5 minutes from the village. The course is a fine test of golf - 6450 yards long, par 71 - and has hosted National and County events. Its subtle difficulties are offset by the wonderful variety of scenery, ranging from seashore to headland, with a breathtaking, panoramic view from the 15th green over many miles of the Northumberland coastline. The course is rich in wildlife and is always a joy to play. Alnmouth village also hosts it's own golf club, formed in 1869, the course was designed and created by Mungo Park, who later became a famous golf professional. Alnmouth Village is the oldest 9 hole links course in England and, many famous names of the past have graced the Alnmouth links, including Harry Vardon, J.H.Taylor, Tom Morris, and The Prince of Wales. The Golf Club welcomes visitors on holiday, and also caters for visiting parties.

Great place to stay. Everything as advertised, clean and with good customer service. Plenty of room for six adults, four children and a dog. On the beach within minutes of closing the front door. Convenient for lots of castles, Bamburgh, Warkworth, Alnwick, as well as Druridge Bay Country Park and beach. The beach at Alnmouth was great for the grandchildren. Lots of sandcastle building and kite flying. Didn't eat out but The Red Lion was a nice place for an evening drink. Booked for next year while we were there. Had everything we needed for a half term Halloween break.
Recommended for: Pet friendly, sightseeing and families with young children
'A memorable break in a gorgeous house....walks at Craster, Bamburgh and Warkworth were only topped by Alnmouth's incredible beach; followed by a home-cooked dinner with friends and family in the perfect dining room, here at Lindores. Amazing' Eastmans, Boston Spa

About the Owner
We are a family of 4 from London, who have fallen for the beaches, castles and peace of Northumberland over the last 10 years.
In our many trips to the area we noticed a shortage of luxury houses that could comfortably accommodate two families or more. We were so excited to come across Lindores in the magical town of Alnmouth. The proximity of the beach, the quality of the restaurants and the convenience of the railway station made it the perfect place for us to stop our search for a Northumberland home.
Lindores has been lovingly restored with a local company. It is beautifully thought out and designed with families in mind.
Since we bought Lindores we have been utterly delighted by the warm feedback from guests. Please help us to make it even better by sharing your opinion.
