A lovely cottage with a fantastic window seat with great views. The beds were comfortable and the showers were excellent. The children loved that it was upside down.

The position of the cottage is excellent for a site-seeing holiday in this area. There are plenty of good places to eat or take coffee within walking distance of the cottage. The first floor sitting/dining room is light and airy with good views towards the sea. It is a very pleasant room in which to relax.

Mrs De-Koning

The cottage was centrally situated in Alnmouth and the bay window had lovely views of the sea. Condition of the cottage was very good and we felt the sitting room and kitchen were roomy and comfortable. We would certainly recommend this place to family and friends.
Mrs Bunce
September 2013
We felt comfortable and at home as soon as we arrived. The beds in particular were the most comfortable we had ever slept in, which is where most rental properties fall down. Overall it was a definite 10 out of 10. Excellent, one to remember.
Mrs Lewin
October 2012
Alnmouth is a beautiful spot and the view from the sitting room window out over the golf course, beach and sea was wonderful. Walking along the beach on a sunny autumn day was lovely. A brilliant holiday.

Upstairs sitting room and oriole style window at the front of the property overlooking the street and the sea. Easy access to beach and river. The place was well kitted out with everything needed for a week.
Miss Millington

The lovely upstairs bay window with seating is great, not only for looking out to sea but also for observing people coming and going in the street below. The Saddle Hotel serves reasonably priced quality food available in two portion sizes.
Ms Goddard
April 2008
Brilliantly positioned for walks around the village and on the beach. Jackson Cottage felt like a 'home from home' - we wished we were staying longer. This is why we are going back again.
Mr Moloney
March 2009
Very nice cottage. Cottage was lovely and in a great location. Had lots of info/board games which was a nice touch. Very impressed by both the cottage and Alnmouth and surrounding area and bus and train links.

Mr Wand
September 2006
First class in all respects, we will be back as soon as possible. The trouble is this is a hidden jewel and I want to keep it a secret, but I also want to tell everyone. The cottage was better than the book says, and the beaches in the area are some of the best I have seen.
Miss Lynch
November 2006
Lovely upside down cottage. Beautiful beach. Lovely people.
Mr Collinson
December 2006
This is the third time we've stayed in the property in the past 12 months and on returning we've booked for two weeks at Christmas in 2007 - I think that's all the recommendation that's necessary!

Mrs Eade

Ideal setting. Close to the beach and countryside.
Mr Beynon
October 2005
In a lovely position as we were able to clearly see the sea and look out onto the street. Very good position for all the amenities of Alnmouth.
Mr Collinson
January 2006
On arrival we found that the owners had erected a Christmas tree complete with lights and had decorated the property with real holly (it was Xmas). You couldn't really ask for more. It was so good, we've already booked for Xmas in 2006 - 2 weeks this time!
Mr Goulden
September 2005
It was all good and we would do it again and go back to Jackson cottage, thank you very much.
Ms Rowe
June 2005
The kids particularly liked the rock pooling on the beach. The area was unspoilt and yet had plenty of amenities. Lots of eating places. Having a deli/grocer 20 m away was brilliant. We used the bus services alot and these were very good - hourly to Alnwick and Amble.
Mr Mallery
August 2005
We really enjoyed our stay in Alnmouth, everything was perfect - the cottage was beautiful, very clean well kept and a perfect base for exploring. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in Northumberland.

A delightful cottage, spotlessly clean with everything we needed, the cottage was very comfortable and cosy, amazing view and a fab shower. Located in a lovely little village, with local shops and pubs, and neighbouring places within easy reach. I would highly recommend this cottage, and would certainly book it again if I was to return to the area. A most enjoyable stay.

We fell in love with the cottage and the area in general. The owner was kind enough to provide us with towels because we were travelling by train and packing minimally. The cottage is clean, inviting and warm with great views from the bay window. It is located on a friendly yet peaceful street. I so enjoyed waking up to the sound of birdsong and spending time people - watching from the bay window. A stone's throw from sandy beach and spectacular views. Also cottage is 50yards from a bus stop, which was so handy for us. Would recommend any of the local eateries, but we particularly enjoyed great food from Bistro 23, who were kind enough to let us have 'takeaway' food even though they don't usually serve it. A great holiday.

What a nice place to stay, very clean, warm and cosy.The kitchen is well equipped, with everything we used working well..The bedrooms are a good size and the shower is brilliant. The locals are very welcoming. We have tried almost all the eateries and they were all good. The best by far is the Italian- they even do a happy hour early in the evening.Overall, a lovely holiday experience, Thank you Mrs Jackson and Sykes Cottages.
October 2013
Jackson Cottage offers a very good level of amenity - rooms nicely decorated and furnished, warm and comfortable, all gadgets etc in the kitchen, excellent view to the sea. The house is 'upside down', with the bedrooms on the ground floor so that the sea view can be appreciated from the first floor bay window in the lounge and dining area. Just two of us stayed, and we chose the bedroom at the back because (we suspect) road and street noise might be disturbing in the front bedroom (it depends what you are used to). There are plenty of excellent restaurants and cafes in Alnmouth, and it is a good location for for the coastal sights and walks.
December 2014
We stayed in this cottage for a week in July, it was comfortably furnished with all mod cons. Two en suite bathrooms was an added bonus, good views to the sea and the golf course, we would stay there again.

We have just spent a delightful long weekend in Alnmouth and could not have asked for a better place to stay - a delightful cottage situated on a quiet high street with a view of the sea from the first floor living room. The bedrooms both have on-suite bathrooms (one with a small bath and shower and one with a large shower) situated on the ground floor. Very conformable and ideally located for local amenities, local walks (of which there are many - look at the local walking book provided) We got there early and had no problem getting access obtaining the keys from the adjoining pub. Very welcoming local shop within too minutes providing all what you would need and tried two of the local pubs, the Red Lion and the Sun. Both were traditional, open fires and real ale. We did our own cooking in the well presented open plan kitchen but did get a 'take away' fish and chips from the neighboring pub which were good value. The other two pubs also looked nice. If there is any negative it would possibly be that the ground floor rear bedroom (which we did not use) does not have a window but don't let this put you off
May 2014
We stayed here for the February half-term week with my daughter, her husband and our grand-daughter. As an ' upside down' house it worked extremely well. The bedrooms on the ground floor were clean, with lovely white bed linen and both rooms had an en-suite bathroom/ shower room. We were provided with a cot and a high chair(although the high chair did not have a tray) free of charge. Upstairs the rooms were open plan so the sitting room extended into a lovely modern kitchen. The dining table was positioned near the bay window which allowed us to view the sea. Although there is no allocated parking we did not have a parking outside or very near the house( and we had two cars). Alnmouth is a lovely seaside town with many places offering evening meals.
September 2011
The property was spotlessly clean,very comfortable and very well equipped. It is centrally located in the village which is a good base for exploring the area.
October 2011
After a stressful year this was just the sort of relaxing holiday we needed. Great position within the village and plenty of eateries in walking distance (including the Indian takeaway from the pub next door - I recommend the hash-o-bash duck!). Good centre for travelling around Northumberland which we hadn't visited much before. Lots of helpful info in the cottage, too. Whinges were few - it would have been nice to have some outside space but appreciate that's not possible - also the door from the back bedroom was unlocked but led nowhere except to a small muddy area which I shouldn't have trodden in anyway! Re the village itself - we shouldn't have to pay for access to the beach at the end of the day, around 5pm. Surprising how difficult it is to access the beaches (other than alnmouth itself) when your mobility is restricted. Recommended trips - boat from Seahouses to Farne Islands; long round trip Berwick-Jedburgh-Kielder; Rothbury a lovely village despite the memory of the Raoul Moat "shoot-out"; Alnwick; Tynemouth; Bamburgh Castle. There's still more to do so we expect to come again.
May 2011
We spent a few days at Jackson's Cottage in March 2011 - and loved it! Beautifully furnished, well equipped and spotlessly clean - and in an ideal location for visiting all the beautiful places Northumberland has to offer!
December 2009
the best holiday we have had! lots of space upsatairs for the children to play, they loved the house being upside down & that they could see the sea. park & beach nearby, as well as children friendly pubs. owners lovely.
December 2009
This holiday cottage is situated in the beautifull vilage of Alnmouth with views acroos the golf course to the sea. It is very well equipped with high quality furnature, crockery, cutlery linnen etc. The two en-suite downstairs bedrooms make it ideal for two couples sharing. The lounge/dinning room on the upper floor has the nice views and a well appointed kitchen. Alnmouth is a delightful holiday destination. It offers a wide range of local attractions, beaches, estuary, bird watchin, golf course resteraunts and many other intersting destinations a short drive away. There is also a regular bus service to Alnwick and Newcastle.
December 2009
We would wholeheartedly recommend this cottage to anyone wishing for comfortable, cosy accommodation with the convenience of shops, post office and local pubs all just a couple of minutes away. Northumberland is one of our favourite parts of the country and this part of the county is stunning. We have stayed in Northumberland many times, returning to one property 7 times which was beautiful but remote and lonely. Alnmouth was somewhere we always wanted to stay and we really enjoyed our holiday there. The only problem we could envisage would be in the Summer with the on-street parking as it was always busy but no problem when we stayed in November.
