The Old Post Office is just moments walk from the amenities of Alnmouth, and makes a wonderful touring base for this lovely area.


Missed the mark
We stayed there as a family of 9. The house is nice, and in a nice location but did not meet our expectations for the money. Parts of it are quite tired ( this is our third house rental in Alnmouth). It is comfortable and reasonably well appointed, however it does miss the mark, here are a few examples: - No welcome pack ( it is the only house I the last five years where we have experienced that), small cost but huge equity. - The Cooker was faulty with a note telling us so. - In the master bedroom we found a three quarters drunk coke bottle and dirty cutlery under the bed. Also in this room the windows were dirty on the inside. - One of the sofas needed shampooing. - The rear passage door was caked in bird dung, despite that being the recommend entry to use on a daily basis in the instructions. - Only one complete set of keys between 9 of us. Would we return - sadly no, a little extra effort would have made all the difference between this and a glowing review.

It was a lovely roomy house for our large family. We enjoyed the easy access to the beach and the adults loved the 3 pubs nearby. It was a very dog friendly place and our Cockerpoo had a wonderful holiday.

The Old Post Office was the perfect place to celebrate my 60th birthday with family.
Mrs Blenkharn

We had a gathering of old friends and the accommodation suited us perfectly. The layout of the kitchen and the rest of the house enabled us to move around without bumping each other! The games room was great for dark winters evenings and the location was perfect with easy access to a lovely coastline.

The Old Post Office was very suited to our needs. All the necessary amenities were provided in the local village and the property was within close proximity of the beach.
