  • "We really enjoyed staying in this holiday home, it was a great central location for us and Northumberland is such a great place."

    The house itself was comfortable and quirky. A few things could be done to improve it further- hooks on the bedroom/bathroom doors for towels, hand soap provided in the bathroom/kitchen and a pint of fresh milk on arrival would have been lovely. We did not use the parking space in the back alley as it was too tight to manoeuvre into and there was no access from the space to the rear of the property- the listing could be updated with this info.

  • "This is a lovely property, we enjoyed our stay and would even consider going back as it is in an excellent location with a short walk down to the village."

    As said very clean and comfortable however they’ve missed providing the small things that are classed as essential in our opinion. There was no hand wash or a small soap bar in the bathroom and only 1 toilet roll (not expecting a 6 pack but at least 1 spare and we buy more if needed) plus no bins in the bedroom. It would be good to highlight that the 2nd double bedroom had no place to put any clothes apart from a few hooks on the wall but I know space is tight in this room. Also that the church bells ring every 15 minutes starting early in the morning at 6am, I wasn’t aware of this and had a poor sleep the first night due to this and had to go buy ear plugs the next day but for those with young children this may not be possible.

    Thanks for this helpful feedback (sorry for the delay in replying) - we'll take action to rectify the issues you mention, where we can. Property Owner

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.
