  • "We really appreciated the central location of the house."

    We were both starting to develop sore backs from sitting on the couch and suggest this is well overdue an upgrade. We found the shower unreliable and found that using without the central heating being in use almost impossible to get a warm shower. Unfortunately the main bedroom radiator developed a leak from the control valve on the Thursday morning, tryed to contact by phone on the number supplied,. Gave up after ringing for nearly 3 minutes, answer system? Sent an email to yourselves and left a note for the cleaner.

    Thank you for your feedback; it really helps us to improve upon the cottage and to ensure that everyone has a positive experience in Aln Cottage. It is in a great location. We were sorry to hear that you found the sofa uncomfortable. That hasn't been our experience but we do realise that it is rather elderly. We have just ordered a new sofa and chair for the cottage, due for delivery in time for the 2024 season. We were also sorry to hear that there were problems with the hot water/ radiator and that you couldn't raise a response from Sykes. We have also contacted them to sort this out. Regards, Susan & Steve Property Owner

  • "Comfortable and homely."

    A lotof thought has obviously gone into making Aln Cottage as 'home from home' as possible. There is plenty to do and see in Alnwick and it's a great base if you want to venture further afield. Not having to worry about parking is a massive plus.

    What wonderful feedback! Thank you so much. We love the parking too and quite often don't move the car for most of the week. Please do come again! Regards Susan & Steve Property Owner

    The cottage is like a home from home. It’s very well equipped and loved the little touches like the milk welcome tray and flowers. Very cosy and will recommend to my friends and family.

    We were delighted to hear that you had such a positive experience during your stay in Aln Cottage and are glad to hear that you intend to return! Many thanks, Susan & Steve Property Owner

    Ideal for exploring Alnwick as central to the town. Ideal for attraction further away.

    So glad you enjoyed your stay in Aln Cottage and Alnwick. Thank you for the positive, enthusiastic feedback! Regards Susan & Steve Property Owner

  • "Very cosy and comfotable, but as i am a house keeper to a holiday propeety back home , i became aware of what wasnt good."

    the tap in bath doesnt fit properly, getting hot water was a daily challenge. when using toilet, i noticed the nearly empty loo roll was still there plus a new one. this was not hygienic. the kitchen cupboards are dirty and sticky,grater is blunt. the brown sofa has seen better days and food and hair still visable down sides of it, not nice. this could be so much better very quickly, maybe shadow the cleaner.

    Thank you for your feedback; we appreciate you taking the time to reflect on your stay at Aln Cottage. I am sorry that you have had some negative experiences. The bathroom tap is new so we will investigate that. With regard to the cleaning, our housekeeper is superb, always very thorough and is devastated that anything has been found amiss. We are glad to hear that you liked the cottage itself, though, and found it cosy and comfortable. We love staying there! Regards, Susan and Steve. Property Owner

    A real home from home. And perfectly placed for exploring wonderful Northumberland and all its glorious castles and beaches. But also a perfect spot to totally relax and unwind and enjoy a meal out and some shopping and walks by the river.

  • "The cottage was advertised as having a TV and DVD player."

    However, I could not get the DVD to connect with the TV. On Sunday and Monday I telephoned Sykes for someone to fix it. A plumber arrived on Wednesday with a more modern DVD player - he pointed out that the existing player had Scart connectors not compatible with the more modern TV. He seemed to know what the trouble was. If so, why wasn't the new DVD player already installed? The bathroom sink hot tap was badly worn and needed either a new washer or replacement. The non-slip rubber bath mat was perished and split.. It came apart when lifted from the bath.

    We value your feedback - thank you for taking the time to compose it. We hope that you had an enjoyable holiday despite the issues that you encountered. The DVD and TV are definitely compatible - we have used them together ourselves many times! We will check and repair/replace the basin taps at the next opportunity. The non-slip rubber bath mat has been replaced. Kind regards, Susan & Steve Property Owner

  • "The property is extremely well equipped, though it would benefit from a hair dryer."

    Also we found the duvet a little small for the width of the bed. Nevertheless, we had a wonderful stay.

    We're really pleased that you had a wonderful stay, and thank you for your feedback - much appreciated. There is in fact a hair dryer in the cottage, which we have now placed in a more prominent position. We have belatedly realised that there was a double duvet on a king-size bed! Sorry about that; all is now sorted, and everything is king-sized. Happy to report that the new bedding is very comfortable. Kind regards, Susan & Steve Property Owner

  • "We have stayed at this property 8 times now and it has been great up until this last stay."

    On arrival we find that the bedroom units have been ripped out and replaced with two drawer units and a four peg coat rack on the wall. There is now nowhere to hang your clothes,, not very good for the ladies. Your website still shows the bedroom having wardrobe space and there is no mention of the change so you know what you are coming to. This is most inconvenient when staying for a week, the property owners have made a big mistake not providing wardrobe space. We will probably look for somewhere else next time in Alnwick.

    Thank you very much for your feedback; we really appreciate it. We are very sorry that our recent main bedroom refurbishment has caused you inconvenience. We wanted to make the room brighter, fresher, and more airy, with a selection of local artwork. Having taken on board your comment about places to hang clothes, we will provision additional places to hang clothes next time we stay ourselves - within the next couple of weeks. Kind regards, Susan & Steve Property Owner

  • "The terraced house was very nice and handy for walking into Alnwick."

    There were plenty of local places to walk the dog as well as going further out. The house was clean and well stocked with cooking equipment and the main bedroom was a good size but there are no wardrobes anywhere. I would recommend Aln Cottage if there were only two of you.

    Thanks very much for your feedback; we really appreciate it and are pleased that you thought Aln Cottage was very nice. We love it ourselves and return there frequently. We recently refurbished the main bedroom, freshening it up, and were really pleased with the results. Noting your comment about lack of wardrobes, we will provide more places to hang clothes next time we stay ourselves. Kind regards, Susan & Steve Property Owner

  • "Overall, we are very satisfied with the Aln Cottage."

    A couple of things we think to make it even better: The instruction email told us to bring our towels, but there were plenty of them in the cottage. A cooking knife and dish drying basket would be helpful. Those are small things and we liked the cottage very much, especially nice selection of books.

    Thank you very much for your positive comments on Aln Cottage, and for your suggestions for improvements. We have asked Sykes to update the instructions email to clarify that towels are provided, and we will look into your other suggestions. Kind regards, Susan & Steve 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.
