Discover a teeny, but oh-so chic B&B hideaway - perfect for couples and canines...

Discover St Valery – a relaxing beachside hideaway for grown-ups. Here, you’ll find comfy beds dressed in the finest Egyptian cotton, silk pillows and duvets, fluffy towels, luxurious bathroom goodies from the likes of Elemis and Neom, and mouthwatering home-cooked breakfasts, made with home-cooked local produce.

With just four rooms, there’s only ever space for up to eight guests at any one time, so you’ll always feel well looked after. Away from your bedroom, discover our relaxing spaces where there’s always a roaring fire in winter and a decked garden in summer to while away time with a book.

Days at St Valery mean you can do as little or as much as you like. Stay a while, explore – and enjoy your stay in Alnmouth’s only boutique B&B. It’s right on the high street, just a few minutes stroll from Alnmouth’s stunning sandy beach. Head to the bottom of the road and catch the sunrise. Enjoy an early morning sandy stroll and watch the village wake up before heading back for brekkie.

An experience here feels like an indulgent weekend with friends. So every day starts with the best breakfast in the village and ends with baked goodies in the afternoon.

When it’s time to leave your comfy bed, the team are on hand to help you make the most of the coast. Whether you’re an adrenalin-fuelled explorer or time poor pleasure seeker, your time yours to spend your way. Either book in a day full of spa treatments, try coasteering lessons, head out for your beachside picnic with a St Valery Hamper, or hire a bike.

And when it’s time to return, you’ll find the best kind of honesty bar – one we’ve stocked with everything you could wish for. Enjoy an afternoon snifter, a pre-dinner pick me up or a post-dinner wind down – and when you’re feeling peckish, the friendly reception team will book the best tables in the best spots.

St Valery is also pet-friendly; Roxy the house dog keeps pooches in line and as soon as you step in, you’ll find everything for the right kind of doggy holiday. This means a bowl and handmade treats and the team are happy to provide a bed and a towel for sandy paws after time spent on the beach should you want to travel light – just let them know before you arrive.

Forgotten dinner? No worries, just ask Roxy to share some of hers – there are spare cans in the kitchen. You can take dogs many places for dinner in Alnmouth, too, so if you’d their advice on the best spots – then just let them know.

All of the dog-friendly accommodation is on the ground and first floors and the B&B typically accepts up to two small-medium sized dogs in each of the dog-friendly rooms at any one time.

Our favourite boudoir is St Cuthbert, which stretches the width of the house and features dual-aspect windows that overlook the high street and rooftops beyond. As one of the largest rooms in the house, discover its king-size sleigh bed and en-suite, as well as its fabulous freestanding tub to while away the hours in.
