Really loved our stay at The Summerhouse. The views across the surrounding countryside really are as stunning as all the reviews say. Had everything we needed and plenty of space for two adults and a dog. Clean and well maintained, with secure outside area useful if holidaying with a dog. The parking space is fine for a standard sized car, but mighRead moret be a little tight to manoeuvre into if you have an estate car or 4x4. Lovely quiet area, short drive to Alnmouth and its beautiful beach. Hide

Lovely compact cottage with outstanding views from the back. When we arrived there were two small bottles of Prosecco which was a nice touch. The cottage is quite a walk from the nearest beach in Alnmouth and all uphill coming back but is definitely walkable. Beach at Warkworth is well worth a visit. About 10 minutes drive. Lovely evening walk downRead more to the river with its delightful stepping stones. Followed river to viaducts and back up to train station, circular walk about 4 miles. Hide
