In arguably Northumberland's most attractive seaside village, Alnmouth, this dog-friendly restaurant-with-rooms is five minutes from the beach and offers sea views from many of its bedrooms. The Victorian villa and adjoining cottage have been smartly furnished in a modern rustic style with wood-burning stoves and lots of jolly references to the coastal location, whether in framed prints, advertising posters or the rich blue and sandy colour schemes. Food is king here - the entire ground floor is a series of eating areas - with a bistro-style menu that highlights local fish, beef and game. The ten comfortable but uncluttered bedrooms are smart with wool-upholstered armchairs, Farrow and Ball colours, waxed rustic furniture and smart touches such as coffee machines, bathrobes and homemade shortbread.

Helen Pickles
Travel and feature writer
Growing up in Yorkshire and with family holidays in the Lake District, Helen, who writes for several UK national newspapers, developed a love of walking and the big outdoors. When it comes to cities, and food, Italy has the edge – and her heart.



Within five minutes, you could be on the beach: a gorgeous two-mile stretch of pancake-flat sands.

Alnmouth is a pretty village, perfect for exploring the shops and beach. Alnwick Castle is a 15-minute drive away.
By car: around 1 hour from Newcastle and 2 hours from Edinburgh. Free parking available.
By train: direct trains from Edinburgh (1 hour) and London King's Cross (3 hours 30 minutes) to Alnmouth. It's a seven-minute drive to the hotel.

Style & Character

Walkers, dog owners and coastal lovers who want a seaside hotel with a bit of style and good comfort will enjoy this place. The references to the sea - a fishing rod, hurricane lamp, wallpaper of seagulls and framed prints of shellfish - are subtly done without going overboard with clutter.

Service & Facilities

We loved coming back from a breezy walk along the sands to a refreshing cuppa by the wood-burning stove in the bar. Dogs are welcome in several rooms and are given a bed, bowl and Whittling House dog-treat. Pets can accompany their owners in the dog-friendly area of the restaurant.
