Prices and Availability
Located on a narrow quiet lane leading down towards the beach in Alnmouth – our most southerly coastal cottage location. This is a popular seaside village located on an estuary and close to Warkworth. A picturesque coastal village, Alnmouth was originally founded as a medieval borough or new town in 1150. The town became established as a grain port and shipbuilding centre between the years of 1207 and 1208. Today Alnmouth remains a beautiful and interesting village and is worth exploring. There are a variety of restaurants, pubs, coffee shops and gift shops for the discerning visitor to enjoy. 2 good golf courses and a great beach complete the picture. Check out the School House gallery for local artwork. Alnwick is a 10 minute drive away.
For further information on the area, see our Craster, Embleton and Alnmouth section
Places to visit if you stay at the Alnmouth Boathouse include the world’s smallest museum on the estuary (unofficially), the School House art gallery and Bistro 23 for crumpets and tea

Full central heating
Please note: Whilst we take great care to represent our properties and their facilities as accurately as possible, the décor, furnishings and facilities shown in images and video tours may occasionally be subject to minor change.
Guests should note that their is no bath at this property but the shower is a large walk-in style luxury one. There is no private parking space for this property just on-street parking outside. In Summer, parking space can be at a premium in Alnmouth so guests may find they cannot park right outside the door. Overall the property is compact but very well-designed with a light and airy feel and furnishings and decor which more than compensate. With a number of steps both outside and inside the property, this would not be suitable for those with mobility problems.
No landline but the owners have left a charged mobile for your use in case you don’t have your own mobile
It sounds like a few negatives for such a small place but believe us….its gorgeous. Guests love it
Having been at a few 'Retreats' before we came with high expectations. They were more than matched. In terms of its location, appointment and immaculate presentation the 'Boathouse' is as near to perfection as we are likely to see.
We've enjoyed a wonderful honeymoon in this fabulous apartment. Countless thoughtful touches helped us enjoy a very relaxing break. Thank you
A little gem of a place - certainly lived up to expectations. A great base to explore the coastline and the stunning countryside
Excellent accommodation, views from the window excellent, very much appreciated the binoculars, location and village not cluttered by the usual holiday paraphernalia of souvenir shops. Plenty to do if you can tear yourself away from the views
