    The Old Post Office Alnmouth.  On the village street but with off-road parking for your cars!
    The lounge is a perfect quiet space which can be closed off from the main sitting room if you prefer
    The dining-room seats 12 and has double doors to the sitting-room, great for keeping an eye on kids!
    A well equipped character kitchen with beamed ceiling.  Not a bad place to be if you are the cook!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 14 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We are a group of 8 friends,all of us retired.We usually go away for New Year,however this year we decided to go later. Whilst most of the country was experiencing rain,gales,floods and general bad weather we were fortunate enough to have blue skies and excellent weather. Our cottage was perfect.We all enjoy walking which we did every day and it was lovely to come home to log burning stoves(with plenty of logs provided).The cottage is so comfortable and has the added advantage of being next door to a fantastic pub which serves excellent food.(They also sell good cask ales which was a big hit with our husbands!) The kitchen is well equipped with a tremendous range,ideal for cooking for a large group.There is also a games room in the cellar we enjoyed a few competitive table tennis games early evening.The house is brilliantly located for local walks to Boulmer,Alnwick,Warkworth and the regular bus service X18 means you can catch the bus almost to the door(brilliant if you have a bus... more

We have stayed at The Old Post Office for the last two years and, we hope, will return for many years to come - 2014 is booked already! This is the ideal property for largish groups of family/friends and is extremely comfortable and well appointed.

George and Debbie couldn't be more helpful and have put a lot into making The Old Post Office our family's favourite destination.

Alnmouth is a beautiful village, yet with first class amenities and close to larger towns such as Alnwick.

Management response:

Thank you for this lovely review and thank you for choosing The Old Post Office for your holidays. We hope you will come again and again. more
