Very clean welcoming house with great welcome pack. House on residential estate within easy (although bit up hill) walk into town, Alnwick Garden and Castle. To avoid steep road, out of house turn left and cross the road, take next right and there is a path that goes all the way to the main road. Great house.

Cannot recommend this house highly enough. A great location close to the A1 and Alnwick which is only a 10-15 minute walk. Really nice quite estate it is located on. It is nicely furnished and large enough for 4 to 5 people with all that you need for a pleasant stay.

The house was lovely, well equipped and very comfortable. Walking distance to the town, pubs restaurants, gardens and castle was approx 15mins. We found a footpath into town avoiding the walk up the hill, its called Fisher lane, turning left out of the property, across the road and take the path on the right just pass a childs playground.

This cottage was in a good location with the castle and its gardens and the town all within easy walking distance. It is also well placed for exploring the local area- there is lots to see and do. More than 2 cars would be very difficult to park.

If you’re looking for a seaside holiday with a difference, visit Northumberland – a region brimming with beautiful golden, sandy beaches, rolling hills, craggy moorland, bustling market towns and fishing villages, and more castles than in any other county in England.

Situated in the North East of England, this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty boasts no less than 39 miles of unspoilt coastline to explore and a calendar packed with exhilarating water sports options. To indulge in a spot of surfing, kayaking or powerboating, take a trip to one of the many breath-taking Northumberland beaches - where dogs love a good walk and fresh local seafood is never far away.

Home to the awe-inspiring Cheviot Hills and the historical Hadrian’s Wall, the Northumberland National Park is renowned for its open spaces, award-winning Dark Skies and stunning rural backdrops - and is the least populated national park in Britain. Offering access to challenging hikes, horse-riding, rock-climbing and a multitude of other action-packed activities, the park is one of the region’s greatest draws.

There is a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted, whether you take a boat ride to the Farne Islands to admire the colony of Atlantic grey seals and puffins, or explore the Kielder Water and Forest Park, home to magnificent ospreys. If it’s history you’re looking for, the imposing Bamburgh Castle and the world-famous Alnwick Castle are undoubtedly worth a visit.

Alternatively, if you’re seeking the bright lights of a city adventure, Newcastle upon Tyne is the place to go. Here, you can experience world-class culture, outstanding attractions, superb shopping, impressive live shows, top entertainers and delicious cuisine in abundance.
