  • "A real home from home."

    Same squeaky floor boards as our house. Cosy and comfortable would be an apt description. We've had a great time visiting local Castles and restaurants etc. Always able to park on the street outside. Many thanks.

  • "This is a wonderful, homely cottage which we would highly recommend."

    It is in a central location in Alnwick yet tucked away in its own private courtyard with a sunny spot for breakfast and evening meal.The Aga was fun to use and made the cottage very snug. There was a fantastic supply of local maps and guides, as well as a huge library of videos/DVDs for all tastes.The beds were comfy, the hot water plentiful and the kitchen well stocked with everything you might need. A perfect place to stay.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Lavender Cottage."

    It’s a lovely property in an excellent location. Very comfortable and homely, it really didn’t feel like a holiday let. Ideal location and great to have garden and parking . Very good instructions left and useful guides to the area. Would definitely recommend to friends and would visit again ourselves.

  • "Really well equipped and comfortable accommodation which is steeped in history."

    Even the access through a passage to Nurses Yard is like a trip through history. Extremely welcoming with an AGA warming the kitchen as you enter. Wonderfully convenient location in an historical part of Alnwick and in walking distance of the castle, garden and town restaurants and pubs.

Built around 1750, Lavender Cottage is a fantastic stone-built cottage ideal for a family or a group of adults looking for a Northumbrian base, with easy access to the town centre of Alnwick and the local pubs and shops.

Be welcomed by this picturesque property and make your way into a charming sitting area with a wood-panelled feature wall, tasteful leather sofas and a woodburning stove, warming your feet as you grab a coffee and one of the selection of books available and relax beneath the historic roofbeams and airy atmosphere.

Any budding chef will be delighted by the cottage style kitchen with a traditional fireplace housing an AGA oven, a dining table and many home-from-home amenities for your convenience.

Two bedrooms await your relaxation, a double with a wooden feature wall and vintage furniture and a twin with pink walls, and you can take a refreshing shower in the bathroom.

Alnwick is a fantastic location for your Northumbrian adventure, with the local shops, pubs and eateries only a short walk from the property itself, and from here you can visit the fantastic Alnwick Castle and learn about the local history or take a walk through Alnwick Gardens.

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.
