A good location, close to Alnmouth and fantastic sandy beaches, and also in a good position for exploring further afield.

Great location for exploring the area - we walked on the beach, went to alnwick Castle and Gardens (inc the Treehouse restaurant!), Dunstanburgh Castle, Barter books...all within a ten-fifteen minute drive.

this was the second time we have stayed at jenny's cottage and both times we found it to be very clean and tidy, the senery is idealic this is a nice quiet place to relax the owner's are very helpful if I was to have one critisism it would be that there should be a small freezer in the cottage for those staying upto a week other than that it's the perfect holiday and would recommend to anyone. We hope to return there again in the future.
Brian Horton
December 2009
On a working farm, this is one of three 2 storey cottages converted from a barn (they also have other cottages and Bed and breakfast in their adjacent farmhouse. Our cottage had a four poster bed and bathroom on the ground floor and a lounge/diner/kitchen in a modern open-plan layout(well designed by the owner) We had a great view of the sea across the fields and were able to watch the resident barn owl hunting over the field. We booked there to be near Alnwick Garden and to be able to birdwatch on the farne islands and Lindisfarne. It was ideal for this and we had perfect sunny weather all week! Only possible problem for less abled perople is the spiral staircase, but the adjacent unit had a proper staircase-as maybe the others do too-so ask before booking. Not a problem for us. We would recommend.
Mr Phillips
December 2004
Excellent views across fields to the sea from lovely upstairs lounge.Excellent weather!
February 2014
Accommodation was fantastic it was faultless. The owners are very friendly. The surrounding area and the views make it all worthwhile visiting Northumberland. We were very lucky that the weather was good to us in February. I would recommend visiting here without a doubt.
August 2011
Absolutely perfect place to stay if you are visiting Northumberland and this cottage offers fantastic views, great location and very comfortable relaxing surroundings. To be able to sit in the evening and watch an owl hunting in the adjacent field whilst the sunsets over alnmouth is idyllic. Alnmouth is an easy stroll for walkers of around 2 miles or a quick trip in the car, with good parking near the boat yard or all day on the common next to the beach. We could not fault this cottage as it has everything you need for a relaxing break and the owners are onhand if required. Best night sleeps we have had for a while and we just loved the peace and quiet. This is definitely on our list for a revisit at some stage.

We picked Jenny's Cottage off the internet, and are so glad we did. Situated on a working farm, it is easily accessible from the a1, and only a short drive into alnmouth or alnwick - perfect for exploring all the properties and gardens in the surrounding area. The cottage itself is very well appointed, with living space/kitchen on the first floor, accessed by a spiral staircase, and bedroom/bathroom on the ground. The view from the first floor window is across the fields to alnmouth and the sea - couldn't be better ! The owners live in the farmhouse across the courtyard, and were extremely friendly and helpful, without being at all intrusive. We will definitely be returning !
