In a peaceful residential area of Alnwick, you will be inundated with ideas for places to visit and spend time on your Northumberland holiday.

Alnwick is home to one of the best-loved and widely known castles in the UK, instantly recognisable from a number of feature films; most movie fans will know it from the Harry Potter series.

Northumberland is one of the most unspoilt areas of Northern England with several national parks and miles of open coastline, home to wide sandy beaches and big skies. Visit Bamburgh Castle, Hadrian’s Wall, the beaches at Morpeth and Seahouses. Outdoor lovers will enjoy taking to Simonside Hills for cycling, horse riding, hiking and more.

This well-presented 21st century property is a pleasant home-from-home complete with contemporary trappings and enhancements. The lounge/dining area centres around an electric, coal-burner effect fire, cosy seating and a TV. At the opposite end of the living space is a large dining table to enjoy family meals together. French doors open out to the garden.

The kitchen comes complete with an electric hob and oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and a microwave. There is a useful utility room which houses the washing machine and tumble dryer. Also on the ground-floor in the converted garage is a ‘cool’ games room with its own TV, games console and a ping-pong table for hours of unadulterated fun. Upstairs are three bedrooms, one king-size with an en-suite shower room with WC, one single, and one double. The main bathroom is nearby containing with a shower over the bath and WC.

Outside is a spacious enclosed garden with a seating area and BBQ, and off-road parking for two cars at the front of the property.

This property is personally managed by Nicola.

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.
