About Simone Neri

As a child I spent many wonderful holidays in Alnmouth with my family. When I became a mother I could think of nowhere better to raise my children than here. I now live near Alnmouth with my two children Isabella and Matteo. There is so much to do in the area - we spend most of our time on the beach having bonfires and BBQs . I am an outdoors person and love walking and cycling...& have even tried surfing!

I already have a successful holiday let in Alnmouth called Sefton House (sleeps 14) and have a catering business called Taste Of Northumberland (catering in holiday lets). Waterside is situated across from Alnmouth - it is where my children love to dive down the huge sand dunes head first on boards! I'm sure you will all love being here - it is quite magical!

Simone Neri purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Simone Neri chose Alnmouth

Waterside is such a special area and the views are spectacular in all seasons. The sea and the beaches are gorgeous and this is where I have spent hours and hours with my children and friends. Alnmouthwhich is a 5 minute drive in the car has a lovely grocery store, gift shop, pubs and eating places.

Walking, surfing, fishing, canoeing, sailing, cycling, bird watching and golfing are just some of the pursuits which are on the doorstep.

You do feel that you have stepped back in time to an old fashioned beach holiday and this is where the uniqueness steps in.

The area is very accessible by car or train but you do feel as though the crowds and the city are a million miles away.

What makes this cottage unique

Waterside is a place of calm and tranquillity , accessed only by a private driveway down to the waters edge.The outside area has uninterrupted views of the spectacular village of Alnmouth village and the magnificent Northumberland coastline, designated as an area of natural outstanding beauty. The cottages are very close tp the coastline cycle route. Bikes can be hired and dropped off at an additional fee.

An excellent base for exploring Northumberland and its coast

  • 5 of 5

Waterside View is a spacious, well furnished and well equipped property in a quiet spot overlooking the Aln estuary. The two bedrooms and bathrooms are extremely comfortable and the kitchen has all that you need for self catering. The cottage was beautifully clean and tidy when we arrived and were greeted by Simone. It is close to the beach - along a footpath - but some distance from the bus stop, railway station and village; so we needed the car, for which there is good and easy parking.

We had an excellent week! The cottages are very well situated at the estuary with views across to beautiful Alnmouth. Our cottage was lovely, clean and comfortable, and equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our break. Thank you!

Lovely cottage in great location!

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed a very relaxing 5 days at Waterside View. Simone was very friendly and helpful and all was as described. Everything worked!! The cottage is in a fabulous location with so much to do and see in the area. Almouth is a charming town with 2 wonderful dog-friendly beaches, some good pubs/restaurants/ tea rooms offering above-average food, an interesting art gallery and a terrific 9-hole golf course- something for everyone!

fabulous getaway

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from a 3 night stay at Waterside View near Alnmouth. It was fantastic, we didn't want to come home. The cottage was immaculate, equipped and furnished to a very high standard, really clean and comfortable, couldn't fault anything. We had some lovely meals out in Alnmouth and took a trip to Warkworth which was well worth a visit, also went to Bamburgh castle and walked on the beach near the cottages (Alnmouth dunes but watch the track, its not suitable for small cars!!). All in all a fabulous break, thanks very much Simone x

Gorgeous cottage, great location, great price

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a 30th birthday celebration and loved it. The cottage is spacious and warm with beautiful decor. The owners are responsive and answered any questions we had and also greeted us at the start of the weekend and showed us how to use the house. The cottage had lovely views of alnmouth and is a short work to the local things and 2 minutes from the railway station. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend here and want to return :)

Car: recommended


The quiet long sandy beach is only a 10 minute walk away & is perfect for a romantic picnic or stroll - its an ideal place to get away from it all. The South Side Beach is famous for its huge sandy dunes where children can go running down and play hide and seek.

There is also the beach at Alnmouth which is on the other side of the River Aln and is a 5 minute car journey . The beaches around Waterside are absolutely breathtaking and they are one of the finest in Northumberland .


The nearest airport is Newcastle International Airport approx. 45 minutes drive away. Alnmouth train station is a 10 minute drive and is located on the main North Eastern Line providing links to Newcastle, local towns such as Berwick and Morpeth & further afield such as Edinburgh & York and London.


The nearby town of Alnwick is a 10 minute drive away & is dominated by the medieval Alnwick Castle, home to the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland. The castle , open to the public , found fame as the setting for the Harry Potter movies. Also located here is The Alnwick Gardens, a spectacular new garden within the castle grounds, also features water displays, a newly open pavilion and the largest tree house in Europe.

Further Details:

Alnmouth and Walkworth have a number of great cafes, pubs & restaurants. Both of the villages have post offices and local grocer shops. Alnwick has a range of high street shops, supermarkets and banks.

Waterside also offers an in house chef if requested in advance . Great for special meals and memorable occasions.
