The property

Ideally positioned within the centre of Alnwick market town, Castle View is a gorgeous duplex apartment set across the first and second floors.

Originally built in around 1800, and with a varied history, this characterful property was completely refurbished, decorated and newly furnished in 2020.

This has been done to a high standard and includes a brand new kitchen and bathroom.

Boasting magnificent views of the imposing Alnwick Castle, this attractive abode offers a picturesque setting for a romantic retreat for two.

Admire the quirky Harry Potter prints that line the kitchen walls paying tribute to the town's Harry Potter connection, as you take to the impressive electric oven and hob to prepare an evening meal.

Dine at the contemporary white table, popping open a perfectly chilled bottle of bubbly and raising a toast to quality time with your loved one.

Wander through to the bright and airy sitting room and allow yourself to fall into the chic pink sofa as you enjoy a quiet evening in front of the Smart TV.

The sitting room also boasts a handy grey double sofa bed, which can be used as flexible sleeping arrangements for up to two additional people.

Climb the open-tread staircase up to the second floor and retire to the bedroom that has been beautifully decorated with stylish blue hues and pretty floral wallpaper, as well as hosting a roomy king-size bed and an abundance of storage.

Spend your mornings getting ready in the tranquil shower room, enjoying the underfloor heating, and indulge in a long and rejuvenating shower whilst your towel keeps nice and toasty on the heated rail.

See the very best that Alnwick has to offer with a relaxing stroll through the centre of town, stopping off for a delicious bite to eat in one of the many local cafés along the way.

Visit the Bailiffgate and Fusiliers Museum of Northumberland before taking a tour of the famous Alnwick Castle, used as the backdrop to some of Harry Potter's most iconic scenes.

Also, pay a visit to The Alnwick Gardens, with the its iconic cascading waterfall, Poison Garden and why not have lunch at the Treehouse restaurant.

Hop in the car and head to Longhoughton, setting off on a scenic hike along the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and uncovering the sandy beaches of Alnmouth and Beadnell Bay Resort.

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.
