  • "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.

  • "We were really impressed by how immaculately clean the house was, especially at the moment with COVID."

    The owner was really friendly too and even dropped fresh eggs round for us to enjoy. The location was perfect, lovely views of the farmland but really easy to get into lovely Alnwick.

  • "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.

  • "The property is next to a very busy noisy road - day and night time also."

    No food storage cupboards as such . Kitchen narrow to accommodate size of table and chairs. Farmer works on noisy machinery some evenings opposite children’s room . Expensive for what is provided

  • "Lovely place and house well situated and delicious cake on arrival."

    Very well equipped and thoughtful presentation. Our only problem was that the shower didn’t work at all well so that was a significant problem for us.

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.
