The camp site
Shoreside is a beautiful campsite set back from the beach. The small site contains three huts and is ideal for family or friends to share, or for a relaxing retreat. The site has stunning views in both directions along the coast and out to sea and Coquet Island.
You reach it by walking the St Oswald’s Way coastal path that runs alongside Alnmouth golf course, approximately fifteen minutes from Alnmouth village. The site cannot be accessed by car.
As an area of outstanding natural beauty Alnmouth is hard to beat for a get away. This small Northumbrian village is well connected, with a train station and just off the A1. The picturesque village of Alnmouth has four pubs, five restaurants a deli, gift shop and our very own art gallery.
A walkers paradise
From the camping huts you step onto the St Oswald Way coastal path that takes you north to Craster, Bamburgh and Holy Island and south through villages Alnmouth Warkworth and Amble.
Seconds from the beach
The camping huts are just a few steps to the glorious Alnmouth beach. This huge sandy beach is popular with walkers, families and dogs but could only be occasionally described as ‘busy’. You will often feel you have it all to yourself with the sand dunes of south beach in the distance and the rocky walk to Boulmer heading north. With the Aln Estuary flowing into the sea here, the area is a must for wildlife enthusiasts and bird watchers.
Alnmouth is easy to find, just four miles from Alnwick off the A1. Take the exit for Alnwick and then follow signs for Alnmouth (A1068). Cross over the bridge at the entrance to the village and turn left at the war memorial. The Old School Gallery is located on the left on Foxton Road.
Once you arrive at the gallery a member of staff will give you directions and keys to the huts and will be happy to answer any questions.
There is no vehicle access or parking at the campsite. Visitors will be required leave their car in Alnmouth. Parking is free in the village but it can get very busy, especially during the summer months and weekends. There is on street parking outside our gallery in Alnmouth. If you can’t find a space right outside, you can stop briefly to drop your bags off and we’ll be waiting for you whilst you find a spot.
