Just returned from a lovely week in Alnwick. The property is located on a quiet estate with off street parking for 1 car. Short walk to the local town and supermarket. Alnwick gardens also very close. It has two good sized double bedrooms and a smaller box room, all well equipped. TVs not quite as smart as they could be and TV reception was not greRead moreat probably due to the weather. We relied on our own Roku box. Would happily visit again. Hide

A lovely house, well furnished and a lot of attention to detail throughout. About a 20 minute walk into town, but you need to be aware that this starts with quite a steep climb. We did discover a path that runs parallel to the estate, which also takes you our onto the main road and is much more gradual.
