  • "The property is very very comfortable and homely."

    Ideally located within easy reach of the town centre, shops restaurants and bars. Only thing I can think of that would improve the property is the shower, pressure not great hot and cold and had to dance around to get wet

  • "Visited for a week with our 4 year old & dog."

    Very nice clean & comfy cottage with easy access to Alnwick & lots of the surrounding areas. Well equipped to make a meal at home & some good takeaways just a short walk away. The only thing my husband & I found we didn’t get along with was the master bedroom bed being quite uncomfortable - mattress hard & lumpy, pillows very firm - I appreciate this is a very individual opinion so difficult to please everyone. Lovely touch’s with the welcome gifts & supply of hand & washing up soap/liquid.

  • "A lot of care seems to have gone into the design of the house, partifularly the provision of umbrellas, hot water bottles, torches etc."

    We found the lack of water pressure meant we couldnt use the bath and you are probably not aware of a pair of scissors are not available, presumably gone missing! All in all a well thought out cottage at a reasonable price.

    It's great to hear that our little touches haven't got unnoticed. And rest assured, there'll be a replacement pair of scissors in the drawer right away. Thanks for the heads up! Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay at White Feathers."

    So close to the town centre and we didn’t have a problem finding parking nearby. The guest manual was very informative and useful. Wi-Fi and TV were great. Beds were really comfortable. The kitchen was really well equipped with lovely sharp knives! All in all we had a great stay, thank you

    Thank you so much for your lovely review of White Feathers. We love running this holiday home-from-home and put in a lot of hard work to make sure our guests have the best stay possible. Your kind words make it all worthwhile. Property Owner

The property

Set in the historic, market town of Alnwick, Northumberland is White Feathers, a delightful, two-bedroom cottage.

Just a stone's throw away from the town's amenities and attractions, including the impressive Alnwick Castle, White Feathers offers a homely base for three guests with their furry companions in tow.

Formerly part of Alnwick Castle as a grain store or oat house, this terrace holiday home has a rich history in a now-bustling town; going back to the 1950s and 1960s, White Feathers even operated as a shop serving the local community.

Unload your belongings and head indoors to make yourself at home.

Be greeted by a lovely living/dining room where you can unwind after a day of adventure with the woodburning stove rustling in the backdrop.

The kitchen is well-equipped for a self-catered stay, where you can prepare delicious meals, ready to be enjoyed around the dining table.

Once the sun sets, catch some rest from either the king-size or single beds, awakening to a refreshing shower in the bathroom.

On your doorstep, be spoilt for choice when stocking up on the essentials and dining out, with The Market Tavern Steakhouse and Lodge, Alnwick Market open every Thursday and Saturday, and a plethora of cafes and pubs to select from.

For attractions, be sure to tour both the castle and Bailiffgate Museum, finishing off with a stroll alongside River Aln or around The Alnwick Garden, ending your day with a tipple at The John Bull Inn pub.

Heading towards the coast, both Howick Hall Gardens & Arboretum and Dunstanburgh Castle are ready to be toured, ideal for history buffs, or head north to explore Bamburgh, its seafront castle and the stunning Northumberland Coast AONB.

With the Northumberland National Park within reach, there's plenty to see and do in the area, all starting from White Feathers.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

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.
