Easy to find on the main street on rhe right hand side as you come into Alnmouth village with some off street car parking behind the B&B(a very welcome offering as i reckon parking in this popular village becomes crazy in the summer)
Lovely warm welcome from owner.
We had Room 6 which was a double and twin with ensuite shower room.
Room is very clean with ample hanging and storage area so that your case/bags aren't cluttering floor space. Dresser with good size mirror and sufficient electric points. Flat screen tv/dvd combo is very modern(dvd's downstairs in residents lounge area free to borrow).
Shower is hot and handbasin and loo are very modern with liquid soap dispenser and some shampoo provided. Ample fresh towels provided in room too.
Breakfast provided is just right and sufficient, toast, tea or coffee, fresh fruit, cereal and a choice of cooked breakfast or local Craster kippers(porridge too i think).

This is what a wonderful B&B is about, reasonable priced and excellent location.
Will definitely be returning in warmer months.
many thanks for being wonderful hosts

If you haven't been to the area before don't expect the Ritz as this place is a very authentic family run B and B that does exactly what you would expect of a northumbrian B and B..Bedroom very clean breakfast good quality and made to order including on the menu good old craster kippers, which were done perfect, if you have never tried this local treat dont miss out The beautiful village of Alnmouth is a favorite of ours and i would recommend if your traveling from the south that you follow the coastal route which is well sign posted off the A1 as the approach to the village is breath taking.Thanks to the owners for a lovely stay and well done for maintaining that lovely old feel about the place, its what the northumbrian coast is all about.Just to add we booked using a living social voucher which did not in any way lower the standard of stay or breakfast.

Had a weekend away for my birthday courtesy of living social deal and spent Friday and Saturday night at The Saddle B& B. Owner gave us a nice friendly welcome and we were told where we could park (at the back there is parking for about 5 or 6 cars) and then shown to our room number 5, it was spacious if a little dated, tea and coffee making facilities and a TV, not much of a view over car park. No double bed but there were 2 single beds pushed together with bedding all in one so it looked liked one enormous bed at first, however it was nice and comfy with soft pillows. We would have loved a bath as do prefer them but the shower was adequate for our needs. Could have done with more milk and coffee in room though as we used all ours Friday night/Saturday morning before breakfast, I did ask for more Saturday morning after breakfast and was assured it would be sorted out but only 2 sachets were put in room for Saturday/Sunday which didn't last long. Dined at the Sun Inn (see review) Friday night and had a lovely meal. Only downfall with Alnmouth was all the local eateries within walking distance stop taking orders at 9pm which was unexpected, as last time we were here there was an Indian restaurant attached to the Schooner which we planned in dining in Saturday night, by the time we had walked down to it and discovered it was closed we were too late to dine anywhere else and ended up having to drive into Alnwick where we found an Indian restaurant open and had a meal in there. Breakfast at the Saddle is quite entertaining as the old lady who takes your breakfast order is quite doddery and both mornings she ended up dropping things on the floor poor thing! Nice breakfast but didn't like mushrooms much, think they are cooked in water and pepper, good choice of cereals etc. loved the marmite touch as it is a favourite of mine. The village of Alnmouth is really lovely and would definitely go back in the future and would not hesitate a stay at the Saddle B& B as very nice people run in. Thank you.

Room Tip: No lift room 5 has a few stairs up to it.

Just returned from The Saddle and feel refreshed after a fantastic stay. The village of Alnmouth is picturesque, I imagine it being a throbbing seaside venue in the summer but lack of sunshine didn't make the place any less beautiful.
We arrived slightly before the allotted check-in time but our room was ready so were allowed to register our details and were shown to our room. We took our dog, a small ( in size but not in mind) Lakeland terrier and she was presented with a treat from the owner,which I thought was kind. She did get a little too excited when the owners husband came to say hello and after , releasing some excitement, and causing us maximum embarrassment- thanks dog, the owners cleaned up the small puddle with no fuss, and to a chorus of profuse apologies from us! We stayed in room 4 , it was warm and cosy with an ample bathroom down some stairs. The room wasn't particularly modern but it was clean and well equipped and it was exactly what we wanted. The B&B has as eclectic charm, it wasn't pretentious or forced. It was to me exactly what you would expect from a traditional seaside b & b. There is a residents lounge with a few comfy Sofas and a tv, there is a selection of DVDs and books for residents to make use of. There is also a small fridge with wine and beer, you pay into the little honesty box or when you checkout, very trustworthy and much appreciated.
As we had the dog with us the owners said they'd set up a table for breakfast in the residents lounge, they took the trouble to ensure we could all eat together without having to leave the dog in the room, or take turns eating, they didn't have to be so considerate and I doubt many other B and B owners would have the same attitude. Breakfast was , fruit juice with a selection of fresh fruit and cereals followed by a choice of cooked breakfasts including craster kippers, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, boiled eggs and of course the traditional cooked breakfast. After a steaming pot of tea was delivered, followed by a round of toast we were presented with our breakfasts which were very satisfying. As a non meat eater I often yearn for a veggie sausage to bulk out my brekky, the Saddle delivered. I enjoyed a perfectly poached egg and my meat eating other half also found the breakfast equally tasty as well as filling.
We spent time walking the beautiful coastline, then heading along lovers lane to spot the array of birds and huge herons that have claimed the coast as their home. Taking in so much fresh air left us with a thirst and the beginnings of hunger so we decided to check out the three pubs in the village. We started in the Red Lion, very cosy and welcoming with a roaring fire crackling away. We drank Stella 4 , and tried a half of the local cider, it was noted as tasting like apple juice but I found it more similar in aroma and taste to a dry sherry, not to my taste. The pub offers food and has reasonable 2/3 course deals on, check the board. They also had a fantastic beer garden which looked out onto the estuary and must be a joy to sit in on a balmy summers night. We asked before entering the pub if dogs were allowed , and they are if on a lead.
Next we called into The Sun Inn, again welcoming but it felt a little too polished, even though the seating and tables were rustic it was what I'd call rustic on purpose, not by accident. The welcome from the barmaid was still welcome and as dogs were allowed we were happy to spend some time. Food was available again.
Finally we ended up in The Hope and Anchor, a real down to earth local pub-but not just for local people. Dog was allowed , on lead so inside we went. Again a fire roared taking the chill off. We ordered drinks and took a seat. Next door to the pub is a new Italian restaurant, the aroma's were too much too resist so we ordered pizzas and chunky chips to share. He had calzone which was filled with tasty meat and sauce, I had a seafoody affair topped with anchovies and chillies. The base was perfectly crispy and the toppings ample and juicy. We decided to pop back for tea the next day when All food on the menu was half price between 4-530. From the half price menu he went for sirloin , me salmon , king prawns and swordfish skewers which was cooked beautifully, not dry, which fish sometimes can be. The steak cut like butter and melted in the mouth, I've been assured.
Alnmouth has something to offer everyone , with a range of eateries, tea rooms, a bistro, a selection of fine pub grub and a new fantastic Italian , which I hope does well as opening a new restaurant in this climate is surely a brave undertaking. All the pubs offer accommodation, there is the "world famous" Schooner hotel and of course the lovely Saddle b&b.
I would not hesitate to return to the Saddle, for the welcome alone! Keep up the good work and don't change, you don't need to be a "ten a penny" seaside B and B with magnolia walls and meaningless artwork.eclectic interesting style and rustic charm with a fantastic family team mean we'll be back, thanks for a great stay.

Stayed: March 2013
