  • “We did not know what to expect due to Covid restrictions being in force, Sykes website advised us of considerations to take bedding/pillows, food, extra cleaning products etc.”

    We found this advice helpful. The cottage is situated on a working farm with this causing no issues whatsoever and was interesting to see the harvesting, feeding of cows etc. The cottage is easily accessible to nearby locations and shops, excellent hilly bike rides and walks with Alnwick Gardens and Alnmouth Beach a must to visit. Host left the ploughing of his field to greet us and was very helpful and friendly, we mentioned to him in passing a couple of light bulbs had gone he straight away ...

    We found this advice helpful. The cottage is situated on a working farm with this causing no issues whatsoever and was interesting to see the harvesting, feeding of cows etc. The cottage is easily accessible to nearby locations and shops, excellent hilly bike rides and walks with Alnwick Gardens and Alnmouth Beach a must to visit. Host left the ploughing of his field to greet us and was very helpful and friendly, we mentioned to him in passing a couple of light bulbs had gone he straight away removed/replaced them. Host did advise due to Covid a number of home comforts such as throws in the living room had had to be removed. Although an electric heater in the living room is fitted we would suggest you take a couple of your own throws as later in the evening the living area became a little chilly around your feet/legs. We would like to mention Carlos excellent fish and chip shop located within the town; and also Lilburn's Restaurant Paikes Lane NE66 1HX - we would suggest you contact the restaurant to make a reservation as again due to Covid they become full quickly. The food is excellent and the ambience in the restaurant has been maintained with very helpful and friendly staff and their control and cleanliness during Covid restrictions being undertaken in a most considerate manner. The only suggestion we could make would be a storage area be made available at the cottage to store/secure bikes safely. Overall a very enjoyable stay in a beautiful part of the Country.

The castle is also famous as the setting of Hogwarts School featured in the Harry Potter films.

Alnwick's narrow streets have seen little change since the days when the London to Edinburgh stagecoach passed through. It offers many shops, pubs, and places to eat and there is plenty to see and do.
