Along the north bank of the River Aln estuary in the coastal paradise of Northumberland is the picturesque town of Alnmouth, a tranquil escape that offers peaceful walks and wildlife in abundance. And now, travellers hoping to immerse themselves in this world can stay in charming seaside huts that have just been unveiled.
Situated on the St Oswald’s Way coastal path that runs all the way north towards Holy Island, the huts are just a short walk from the village of Alnmouth. Offering incredible sea views towards Coquet Island Nature Reserve and Lighthouse, the accommodation cannot be accessed by car, but has a train station close by. It has been designed to offer an off-grid experience that has minimal impact on the natural surroundings while also allowing guests the opportunity to explore the coastline.
“Our huts are an inspired modern take on the fishing and beach huts that run along the Northumberland coast. They are the result of a collaborative project between RIBA award-winning architects Elliots, artist Adam Clarke and the Old School Gallery in Alnmouth,” Shoreside Alnmouth Camping Huts’ Dale Maloney told Lonely Planet. Bike hire is also available, with car parking at the art gallery in the village. A shower room is available at the gallery, approximately fifteen minutes away on foot, and the huts have water for cooking and washing provided by refillable under-sink canisters. Guests can also cook simple meals on two small ring gas hobs and a wood burner hot plate, with all cutlery, plates, pots and pans provided.
Guests will also find some small items that have been put in the cabins for entertainment, such as a selection of board games, radios, binoculars and books.
