    “We enjoyed staying at Beals Yard very much and the property was clean and welcoming.”

    A slight problem for me in that the bed was a little too soft for my bad back.

    A slight problem for me in that the bed was a little too soft for my bad back. Alnwick is a good base for getting to very interesting places within a short drive. We visited Bamburgh, Cragside, Holy Island and of course Alnwick castle and gardens. For anyone visiting in the next few weeks, be aware that the area is very busy, especially with regards to eating. We tried 8 venues one evening all of which were fully booked. So my advice is to book early in your stay.

The property

Beals Yard is a beautifully-presented, reverse-level annex, situated in an wonderful 1760 Grade II listed building resting in Alnwick, Northumberland.

Offering a delightful courtyard, perfect for the summer months and a fabulous décor, this property is ideal for a romantic retreat at any time of year.

Arriving at the property, climb the stairs to the first-floor open-plan living space and settle in to your home away from home.

The kitchen offers an electric oven and hob so you can whip up a delicious dinner for your other half to enjoy.

From here, snuggle up on the stylish sofa and watch a film on the Smart TV.

When sleep calls, make your way back down to the ground floor, home to a king-size bedroom with a bright and airy décor and an en-suite bathroom where you can freshen up ahead of another busy day of exploring your surroundings.

Outside, spend the warmer evenings out in the courtyard; lined with mature plants and shrubbery with a bistro set resting in the gravelled area, the courtyard offers a peaceful place to savour a good glass of wine with your loved one.

While staying at Beals Yard, take a stroll around the famous The Alnwick Garden, a magnificent network of gardens boasting a cascading fountain and marvellous treehouse restaurant.

If you want to brush up on your history, the 1836 church conversion, Bailiffgate Museum is within easy reach and offers a fascinating insight into the town's culture.

Fans of Harry Potter will enjoy a day exploring the set of Hogwarts School at Alnwick Castle, with events taking place throughout the year, you won't want to miss it.

Barter Books, one of the largest second hand book shops in the country is situated in the original station and only a two minutes walk away, it is a fascinating building with a great café serving food all day and also has an ice cream parlour.

Alnwick Playhouse is within a close distance, it stages theatre events, is a library, gallery, cinema and also houses a tourist information office, and again there is a lovely café serving breakfast, lunches, pre-theatre meals, drinks and cakes.

There are many walks from the house along the River Aln or in Hulne park.

Nearby you can spend a day at the beach, which is just a short and scenic drive away, or venture out to Craster Harbour to discover a delightful port with stunning views over the sea, beaches are all dog-friendly.

Further up the coast is Lindisfarne Farm or Holy Island, approached via a tidal causeway, visit the castle refurbished by architect Edwin Lutyens, and take a wander through the Gertrude Jekyll garden.

The priory is an atmospheric and special building standing in the centre of the island.

Further afield is the lively city of Newcastle-upon-Tyne which is home to plenty of shops, pubs, restaurants and cafés to fuel your excursions; why not treat yourself to a shopping spree and a romantic meal before heading back to your dwelling.

You can take the train from Alnmouth to Newcastle or for a special treat spend a day in Edinburgh sampling all it has to offer, only an hours comfortable journey away.

Beals Yard is a superb retreat you can return to year after year.

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.
