  • "Just back from a lovely stay at Pringles Yard."

    What a quirky little place, the hosts have done an amazing job. Good size rooms, plenty of space for everyone. The little single room made my 6 yr olds day, complete with books, lego, cars, drawing stuff and a desk! Everything we needed was in the house and access to some games and movies was a bonus. So central, everything on your doorstep. Parking to unload waa a bit of a challenge but as long as you don't mind carrying things we had no trouble parking further up the road. No issues with noise from the road for us using the rooms in the upper part of the house. Would definitely recommend a stay here!

    Thanks so much for the lovely feedback Claire, come back anytime! Property Owner

  • "Had a brilliant stay at Pringles Yard."

    The apartment itself is lovely with plenty of room and full of character and lots of quirky things to look at. The rooms are spacious and clean and the beds are so comfortable! Things like the pool table, games & the smart tv are great too especially if it's a bit too rainy to venture out. The owners are only a call away if needed and there are helpful leaflets and there is plenty of information about the local area. There's plenty of free parking locally and loads of places to eat out. The apartment is perfectly positioned in Alnwick town centre for easy walking distance to shops, cafes and local attractions like Alnwick Castle, Alnwick Castle and Barters books. It's also easy driving distance to castles as Dunstanburgh and Warkworth and some lovely beaches and it's a great base for the North East generally.

    Our first visit to this part of the country and we definitely hit the bull’s eye with the location! Alnwick itself if a fabulous, friendly and full of loads of wonderful, independent shops (including the amazing Barter Books) and a castle within easy walking distance. The apartment is also in a great location, 2 minutes walk from a supermarket, shops, restaurants etc. A couple of reviews mentioned night time noise but honestly I think we heard maybe two people on the Friday and Saturday night and that was it. Nothing to worry about or to spoil a holiday. The apartment is full of lovely, quirky touches. Our teenagers would say it was perfect for great Instagram posts! No hesitation in recommending both Alnwick & Pringles Yard.

    The owners were great with communication before, during and after our visit and had thought of everything down to kids board games. The quirky decor and location were spot on: close to both Northumberland’s coast and inland attractions. We’d love to come back and visit again at some point in the future!

    The location in the centre of town was excellent. There was a bit of ‘late night’ noise on the Saturday night but this wasn’t a problem. The flat was well situated for visiting all the attractions in Northumberland that we wanted to visit and is not far from the coast. It was well equipped, clean and comfortable and I would highly recommend it. So much so that we are just deciding when we can visit again! 10 out of 10.

    It’s a really central location so great to walk to just about anywhere in Alnwick, we had no problem parking on a nearby street in fact we got the same space each time. We had wine and chocolates left for us and enjoyed a great week at a really special location. The owners are easy to get hold of and proactive. A great stay,

    The accommodation is clean comfortable and has a quirkiness about it which is very appealing. It’s central location in Alnwick was a real bonus as we were able to be out at shops, bars and the theatre within minutes. We did find it a bit noisy at night time at the weekends but this didn’t detract from our stay. Alnwick and the surrounding area were lovely to visit and overall we were very happy.

    It did not spoil our holiday but would like to have know before hand. We had a great time in the lovely but unusual accommodation which we found very interesting and added to our holiday. Loved the window that had no outlook and the door headboard. Well worth a visit and so very centrally situated with Morrisons our corner shop.

    We visited with a family of 4, plenty of room and very well thought out interior with an excellent kitchen, lounge with a small pool/snooker table, plenty of games, and 3 bedrooms.

  • "Could not recommend this property more highly if you are staying in Northumbria."

    All of the county’s attractions are in easy reach. The property is slap, bang in the middle of town so ideal to explore Alnwick. The property itself is great. Spotlessly clean, 3 bedrooms, plenty of wardrobe space, good lounge and a good sized, well equipped kitchen. It does not have its own parking but we found no problem parking within 100 yards at any time with the provided permit. We found the mattresses a little soft for us but that is very subjective and others may feel differently. If you are not using all the bedrooms I suggest you use the bedrooms on the upper floor as they are a little quieter. One tip when you arrive - the owner gives very detailed instructions how to find the property but I’d suggest just driving into town and parking on Morrisons. Then go and get the keys, open up and bring your luggage through the gate on the main road. Afterwards, move your car and park using the permit provided. You can park on Morrisons for 2 hours. The owners themselves were very responsive, friendly and welcoming. They checked in with us when we arrived and when we left. We had no problems during our stay but I’m confident anything would have been dealt with very quickly. We had a lovely stay.

    Parking was a doddle, discs just £1 but just opposite Morrison is 24hr free. Being in the middle of town allowed us to park up after a days outing and enjoy a walk around the town to find dinner. We would recommend Sherkhan if you like Indian just opposite PY and The Plough and The Market Tavern for delicious pub grub. It was a short drive to the amazing Bamburgh Castle (sadly just missed Harrison Ford filming here) Alnwick castle was temporarily closed but the gardens are amazing especially the waterfall and the poison garden.

The lounge has been tastefully decorated with quirky features such as the art nouveau sofa and pool table, providing a relaxing space to unwind in the evening with two window seats, perfect for people watching!

About the location

ALNWICK

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.
