About Anne-Marie McAllen

We are a family of 4 from London, who have fallen for the beaches, castles and peace of Northumberland over the last 10 years.

In our many trips to the area we noticed a shortage of luxury houses that could comfortably accommodate two families or more. We were so excited to come across Lindores in the magical town of Alnmouth. The proximity of the beach, the quality of the restaurants and the convenience of the railway station made it the perfect place for us to stop our search for a Northumberland home.

Lindores has been lovingly restored with a local company. It is beautifully thought out and designed with families in mind.

Since we bought Lindores we have been utterly delighted by the warm feedback from guests. Please help us to make it even better by sharing your opinion.

Anne-Marie McAllen purchased this house in 2014

Why Anne-Marie McAllen chose Northumberland

To be right next to the seaside in a magical part of the world. The 'Salcombe of the North' as Alnmouth should be known. Set back in time with a relaxed and informal community, its the safest place in the world for children to run free.

The people are so friendly and the place is alive with history and good old fashioned things to do - put away your technology for a while and enjoy the fun activities of yesteryear. (Or not since we have superfast broadband, Wifi and a PS4 with games all available).

The village is quiet and peaceful yet has so much going on too.

What makes this house unique

Lindores House offers you comfort in absolute style - 4 Star rated by Visit Britain, we're the only house of it's size in Alnmouth with this accolade giving you peace of mind that you have chosen the best.

With 3 bathrooms plus 1 WC, 5 bedrooms and lots of internal space you can all be indoors easily if the weather is an 'inside day'!

It's a 2 min walk to the beach or park from the front door and then you can walk for miles on the unspoilt beaches or indulge in a spot of beach cricket.

The house is exceptionally well equipped for children and adults. There is a Play station 4 with games, Broadband internet. You have a BBQ and fantastic seating area at the rear of the property for al fresco dining.

All in all we make sure that our guests are happy and have a superb holiday.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'A memorable break in a gorgeous house....walks at Craster, Bamburgh and Warkworth were only topped by Alnmouth's incredible beach; followed by a home-cooked dinner with friends and family in the perfect dining room, here at Lindores. Amazing' Eastmans, Boston Spa



'We had a lovely time. Brilliant, great, amazing. It felt like a hotel rather than a house. Rating 10/10 ******six stars, thank you!' Palmer, London



This was our third year here as we love the house and Alnmouth for our annual family get together – all 12 of us! Will miss the beach walks and in the evening by the warm fire! Thank you Elly. Breckenridge

Perfect. Just as descibed. We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

This was a return visit for the family as we enjoyed last year so much. The house is beautiful and very well equipped. Plenty of room for a large family. Excellent customer service; the owner informing us of the restriction in Alnwick Castle before we arrived so we could taylor our schedule around it. The pubs in Alnmouth are very friendly; the food in The Sun and Red Lion is wonderful and the quiz great fun. The house is literally 2 mins from the beach and is spectacular. We watched the sunrise and the sunset over the water, played games and had bar-b-ques. We also went to Kielder Observatory, Edinburgh, hired bikes to ride the coastal paths and river kayaked from Warkworth. We can thoroughly recommend all of these things. Mike from Adventure Northumberland river Kayaking was great. We had an excellent time playing games in the water, traversing the weir and laughing all the way - we will definitely repeat this. Do not forget Alwick and Barter books, plus the food festival was also on the weekend we arrived. Lindores is a perfect base in a wonderful area. Thoroughly recommended - we will be back as there is so much more to see.

Fabulous Family Home

  • 5 of 5

Lindores is perfect for a large group or family break. The house is very large and all bedrooms are comfortable and roomy.

I booked it specifically for my sister in law to use for her wedding the next day at Alnwick Gardens, we were kindly allowed to check in super early so she could have a stress free day beforehand. The master suite was ideal for her to get ready in with lots of room for all the necessary pampering! All the neighbours were out in force taking pictures as she left.

The whole house is lovely and top of the range, a large kitchen which is equipped with everything you could need, a super comfy lounge with a wood burner, 2 boilers so no queuing for showers/baths even with a house full. Perfect position just one street back from the beach. Alnmouth is a lovely small seaside village, with a few good pubs and eating places, but best of all an amazing long wide beach which even in high season is never too busy. The whole area is delightful, not busy, fabulous beaches, the most friendly people you can imagine, great food and drink to be had and stunning scenery in every direction. I would recommend Lindores to anyone, it was just perfect for us all. 5 stars!!!

Lindores self catering - Alnmouth,Northumberland

  • 5 of 5

Ideal family property,well maintained and equipped just moments from the stunning estuary and fantastic beach.Our party was six adults and two children (aged three and four) and the great range of toys,books and games were well liked by the children,especially on one day when it poured with rain! The house is spacious and comfortably furnished and provided an ideal base for a family holiday and the welcome pack of wine,treats and essentials was a nice touch.

Super Place

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. Everything as advertised, clean and with good customer service. Plenty of room for six adults, four children and a dog. On the beach within minutes of closing the front door. Convenient for lots of castles, Bamburgh, Warkworth, Alnwick, as well as Druridge Bay Country Park and beach. The beach at Alnmouth was great for the grandchildren. Lots of sandcastle building and kite flying. Didn't eat out but The Red Lion was a nice place for an evening drink. Booked for next year while we were there. Had everything we needed for a half term Halloween break.

Windsurfing, water ski-ing and diving among the wrecks off the Farne Islands are also popular.

It's also home to The Alnwick Garden and Alnwick Castle, rising dramatically above the town and famous among Harry Potter fans as the setting for Hogwarts. Don't miss Alnwick's 'Barter Books' either, one of the largest second hand bookshops in Europe.
