  • "We thought the house and its position were lovely."

    However, we have been regularly self catering for over 50 years and were a little taken aback by the lack of simple items like salt, pepper, sugar and milk. We were also surprised at the lack of a washing up bowl, granted there was a dishwasher but only one (1) tablet. Even more disappointing was the fact that there was a lot of dog hairs in both the kitchen and lounge. Nice ship spoilt by a haporth of tar.

  • "A warm and comfortable cottage with plenty of parking outside."

    Nicely decorated with a good sized living room big enough for 6 people to relax in for the evening. It would be possible to walk into Alnwick, but part of the walk would be along a busy road so we took the car. We enjoyed the walk across the field opposite the cottage and down to the river. The cottage is close to a main road, we were aware of a little traffic noise during the day but it was quiet at night. Our only difficulty was that the fridge door had no shelves so we had to buy milk in 1 pint containers as the larger ones leaked when laid down in the fridge.

  • "The property is well presented and has parking at the side."

    There is a safe area for children and plenty of outdoor seating. The property was very clean, towels and bedding was provided. The rooms were very comfortable and its like a home from home. There is a path if you fancy a walk into Alnwick, if not there is plenty of parking. Overall we had a lovely holiday and would definitely stay here again.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    The cottage is ideally situated for exploring the coast, islands and castles/houses of Northumberland. The close proximity of supermarket and M&S foods was brilliant for self catering Owner very helpful and pleasant but not intrusive. There were one or two very minor things we mentioned to him, a dripping tap and a light bulb replacement for example. A1068 is just outside the house and is quite busy during the day, but not so at night.

    Hello Charles Thank you for staying with us at apple tree. I am so happy you enjoyed your visit in and around our lovely Northumberland. We hope you return for some more adventure pretty soon.

  • "We had a lovely week's stay at Appletree cottage in this wonderful county."

    Everything was clean and comfortable and it is well equipped. We enjoyed sitting in the garden, looking at the stars at night, the lovely views from all the windows (including the cows and calves in the field opposite), the nearby walks and the close proximity to the coast and Alnwick without being in the centre of a town. Lots of space to park and easy driving distance to the local beauty spots and attractions. The road outside was not a problem at all and we enjoyed hearing the sounds of the countryside around us. A great week - thank you.

    Hi Mary Thank you so much for your valuable feedback about apple tree cottage and surrounds . It's always a big tap on the shoulder and a massive reward to know that guests have enjoyed their stay and achieved a relaxing week in the country and beautiful nature. Thank you very much.

About the location


Alnmouth 4 miles; Bamburgh 15 miles; Rothbury 10 miles.

The attractive and historic market town of Alnwick is dominated by Alnwick Castle, home to the Duke of Northumberland. The Castle Gardens, opened in 2002, are home to Europe's largest cascading water feature, a fabulous (and enormous) treehouse, a delightful rose garden and a beautiful, walled ornamental garden, which will delight novice and experienced gardeners alike. The castle is also famous as the setting for Hogwarts School featured in the Harry Potter films! The town's narrow streets have seen little change since the days when the London to Edinburgh stage coach passed through and the Market Place, with its stone cross, is still the central feature and the ideal venue for the weekly Saturday market. Alnwick offers a good selection of shops, pubs and places to eat and there is plenty to see and do, with miles of golden sandy beaches, numerous castles and boat trips to the famous Farne Islands all available nearby. Altogether a superb location for exploring Northumberland and its stunning Heritage Coastline.
