“Fab little cottage just by the beach”
Reviewed July 27, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Quarterdeck is a super place to stay and actually quite spacious. There are no carpets so you don't mind coming home covered in sand which is inevitable as it is so close to the gorgeous Alnmouth Beach. Endless hot water and really easy heating controls just incase is not scorching weather. Brilliant little village shop too with delicious artisan bread and yummy icecream, amongst other things. Highly recommend to anyone, kids loved it too.

“Another great stay, lovely cottage in a super location.”
Reviewed March 23, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Our second weekend stay at Quarterdeck with friends. The cottage was very cosy on our arrival, and is very well-equipped. Easy to find, and we were able to park right outside. We didn't use the car all weekend - walked 9 miles up the coast to Craster on Saturday (very interesting and varied coastal landscape on a good path) and caught the bus back to Alnmouth. Ate at "Hooked" in Alnmouth on Saturday evening - it far exceeded our expectations, with superb seafood (we had mussels, red mullet and sea bass) and delicious puddings. Very good and friendly service too, would highly recommend. On Sunday we watched the launch of the new Alnmouth coastal rowing boat (with the Duchess of Alnmouth on board) and visited the lovely Old School Gallery. All in all in very relaxing weekend, a great cottage in a really interesting part of the world.

“Well-equipped cottage in great location.”

Stayed with friends for a weekend break. Cottage was very clean and tidy with everything we needed - far more than just the minimum numbers of mugs etc Owners were extremely helpful and provided useful assistance with arrival & heating. Cottage is in a great location on the main street in Alnmouth - beach just across the road, village shop 2 mins walk away. Had a reasonable meal in the friendly Red Lion pub, and also visited the Village Tea Rooms. Walked down the coastal path to nearby Warkworth; surprised to find several decent shops (got some Christmas shopping done!) and eating places. We visited without a car and were able to get to the cottage from Alnmouth station by bus. On the return journey we walked back to the station, about half an hour. Taxis are available but need to be booked in advance.

“Lovely house, great location”

We stayed at Quarterdeck at the beginning of June and can recommend it as a good choice.

Booking was a straightforward experience and Cheryl and Tony were quick and very helpful in responding to emails. We were given clear instructions on how to get to the house, how to get in, parking etc.

The house itself is very comfortable and clean with everything you are likely to need. It is on the main road in Alnmouth which is very convenient for both the beach and the local pubs and restaurants. Once or twice we had to park around the corner but generally got a space outside the house.

We've stayed in quite a few holiday cottages and it is sometimes difficult to put your finger on exactly what it is that works - but this was a very relaxing and comfortable place to stay!
