A picturesque coastal village, Alnmouth was originally founded as a medieval borough or new town in 1150.
Alnmouth became established as a grain port and shipbuilding centre between the years of 1207 and 1208.
Today Alnmouth remains a beautiful and interesting village and is worth exploring.
There are a variety of restaurants, pubs, coffee shops and gift shops for the discerning visitor to enjoy.
The famous Schooner Hotel, a listed 17th century coaching inn only 100 yards from the beach and golf course, has been the hub of Alnmouth village since its first customer back in the 1600's, and remains one of the most well known and respected hotels in Alnmouth.
The Schooner Hotel is also famous or should it be infamous as the 'The Most Haunted Hotel' in Great Britain North East of England, and was featured in the television series 'Most Haunted'.
Alnmouth is the most northerly community in England (but the friars have one in Scotland).
The house offers a place of pastoral care in the northeast, welcomes guests and has a constant stream of visitors.
However entry is very difficult across a shallow bar protecting a shifting channel.
Fortunately there are no rocks, but the currents can be dangerously fast in the narrow channel.

At a later date it was split into two courses, Alnmouth Village Golf Club, a fine nine-hole course adjacent to the beach.

And Alnmouth Golf Club, a challenging 18 hole course with an excellent layout and panoramic views, the course being located at nearby Foxton Hall.
