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.



On the main street of, arguably, Northumberland's most attractive seaside village with its handsome Victorian villas, colourfully painted sea-facing houses and pancake-flat sands, it's a five-minute walk from the beach. The street is one-way, so is relatively quiet, and easily accessible from the A1 three miles away. Alnmouth Station, on the main east coast line, is a 20-minute walk. Additionally, Alnwick market town, with its eponymous castle - the family home of the Duke of Northumberland - and garden, are a ten-minute drive.

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. Book trains to Alnmouth.

In a former Victorian villa and farm cottage, the hotel is deceptively big, with the ground floor stretching back in a series of semi-separate eating areas. The modern rustic look of tiled or wood floors, panelled walls, log-burning stoves, banquettes and spindle-back chairs is smartly done, with sandy colours and shades of blue nicely referencing the coastal setting.


There's no guest lounge but the bar and eating areas offer plenty of space outside of peak eating times. Staff are on the ball and happy to help with suggestions for walking and cycling routes. Bikes can be stored in the cellar and packed lunches are provided on request. There's limited car parking, otherwise, staff can direct to the nearest free areas.

The rooms are light and uncluttered with a smart rustic look of waxed-wood furniture, wool-upholstered chairs, pale grey walls and hard-wearing cord carpets. Splashes of mustard, sea blue and tomato red in fuzzy bed-throws and cushions add softness while bathrooms (all but one are shower-only) are bright with patterned floor tiles and metro tiles in shades of blue, grey and white.

Room types: Room, Deluxe Room, Studio

Key amenities: ensuite bathroom with toiletries, bathrobes, tea and coffee facilities, TV, free Wi-Fi


Food is bistro-style with a hefty Northumbrian twist. Starters such as a prawn and lobster cocktail or twice-baked Northumbrian cheese soufflé might be followed by venison with clapshot (swede, turnip and potatoes) or halibut with brown shrimp sauce. The well-priced wine list has a short but decent choice. Breakfast is waiter-served with a good range of hot dishes.

The Restaurant: cosy bar and dining room. Pub classics, locally sourced produce. All-day menu, open daily. Mains from £18. Sunday lunch served 12-9pm.
