Description

Tucked away off the main thoroughfare of Alnmouth village this compact hideaway cottage is a true delight.

With either two double bedrooms or a double bedroom and second upstairs sitting room, the cottage is within easy walking distance of the beach, the river estuary, a choice of pubs, restaurants, hotels and cafe. The local post office and gift shop are just around the corner, or enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of the cottage with a good book or two or even allow yourselves time to read the whole of the Sunday paper in a day!

Alnmouth, extremely popular in summer, retains its charm with narrow streets, numerous alleyways and footpath walks. The tidal river estuary is often awash with activity. Close at hand are both Foxton and Alnmouth Links golf courses and miles of glorious sandy beaches lie to the north and south. Follow the alleyway leading to the main village and walk to a different pub or restaurant each night - particularly recommended is the local cuisine at The Red Lion and enjoy a meal in front of their open fire!

Reviews

A gorgeous cottage in a beautiful location - it was perfect for us. Lots of walking in the surrounding area.

Past Customer,

Platone Cittage is in a lovely quiet location and just a short walk from the stunning beach. The cottage is quirky, small but beautifully formed! It's very cosy with responsive heating and the kitchen is well equipped. The bed is extremely comfortable though difficult to access as there is very little room either side. The dedicated parking space is an added bonus. The bottle of prosecco and biscuits were a nice touch. Alnmouth is a great place to stay with great eateries and really friendly people.

A lovely wee bolthole, perfect for us and 5 year old son over a week. Ideally located in lovely Alnmouth with everything you need nearby.

Past Customer,

Beautiful compact cottage, perfect for a couple. As other reviews have said, access to parking is tight (mostly thanks to an abandoned car on the lane!) but there is plenty on road available, which we made use of.

Past Customer,

The on-line descript ion t icked all the boxes. The cottage lived-up to expectation . S it uated in a quiet locat ion ,it is comfortable and sympat het i cally rest ored . Wood panelling gives it a seaside feel . The beautiful expanse of sandy beach is a minute away ( dogs allowed ) Good pubs/restaurants , deli and village shop around the corner . Parking is a bonus , not all houses in Alnmouth have an allocated space ..We have a C3 Picasso and found little difficulty in parking . A large car/SUV ( not recommended for touring the by-ways and lanes of Northumberland) would find it difficult to park . A friendly and welcoming village .We will be back .

Past Customer,

This was our fourth visit to Platone cottage which in itself speaks volumes. The new owners have changed very little maintaining the high standard of comfort and facilities inside. The cottage is centrally placed down a quiet lane with a small parking space. The inside is quite cwerky with uneven floors and stairs which all add to the character of the cottage. The bed in the small second bedroom is a seems like a futon style which was very hard and uncomfortable. However the bed in the main bedroom was very comfortable. I normally have trouble sleeping for a few nights in a strange bed, but not this one, I slept like a log. There is a space under the open stairs which is perfect for a dog bed. There is also a good boot and coat area with a coir floor covering when you enter the cottage. There is a small yard/garden area which has a gate so is perfect for letting your four legged friend out for for a first and last pee. When we arrived the owners had left us some milk, sugar, biscuits and coffee and tea bags which is always handy after a long drive. In the fridge they had left us a bottle of prosecco (thank you). The pubs in the village are all good and dog friendly and serve very good food (food in the Schooner is not so good). The local post office in the village sells almost everything you need. There are loads of great walks from the village, going straight onto the beach. The locals are all really friendly and seem genuinely interested in what you do and where you are from. As for Platone cottage, I'm sure we'll be back, we have done so far.
