  • "We were made very welcome with a lovely gift hamper - including some goodies for our little dog!"

    The property was beautifully decorated and furnished and provided all the appliances you would need. It was clean and cosy. Parking was available off street and we were within easy walking distance of the town and its many dog friendly pubs and shops. We would definitely recommend and would stay there again if we came back to the area.

  • "This is a great modern property."

    Only a few minutes walk into Alnwick. The property has all that you need for a great stay. The welcome pack was amazing and so many essentials in the property that we were not expecting.

    The others in our party were impressed and I’ve already recommended it to a friend. We had a lovely stay there.

  • "Absolutely fabulous property which is beautifully clean , decorated to a high standard and it was so conveniently located veing within walking distance tk all Alnwick has to offer."

    We very much appreciated the very thoughtful and generous welcome pack. The only things that could be improved upon are : the toilet seat requires adjusting and a door hook on the back of the single bedroom would have been useful but these are minor things. Thank you to the owner for what was a lovely stay.

  • "One of the very best self-catering properties we've ever stayed in!"

    Great location, spotlessly clean, good value. The added touches made the flat really special and comfortable. All the furniture, bedding and decor is tastleful and great quality and the owners have provided all the essentials, and much more. The welcome pack was absolutely lovely, and more than just essentials like milk and bread - even included a large bag of biccies for our dog, and two bags of sweets for the kids! The bottle of fizz was a real treat :-) Lovely big tvs in all rooms - handy for teenagers on rainy days! Other reviews mention the tight parking - that's true, but we managed fine with an estate car - just take your time! And there are a number of long stay car parks very close by if you'd rather do that! Quiet, residential location, but only 3 mins' walk and you're right on Alnwick main street. Can't recommend this flat more highly! Exactly what good holiday lets should be

  • "Really enjoyed our stay in your very clean and comfortable home."

    The welcome pack was generous and we were particularly touched that you provided some treats for doggo too; Alfie was most pleased! The home was ideally situated for all our needs, it was lovely to leave the car at home for a day. We would recommend your property to anyone wanting to stop in Alnwick and the surrounding area and hope to return ourselves sometime. Thanks very much

  • "Lavenna is a beautiful apartment and one we all thoroughly enjoyed."

    There was a fabulous welcome pack and a vase full of fresh flowers which was a lovely touch. The property is beautifully decorated and well equipped with quality goods. Everything has been thought of right down to charging cables! The living area is tasteful and very homely. Every room has a TV and Alexa which is ideal for families.especially those who have teenagers! The beds are extremely comfortable and you get a good amount of fluffy towels. We would highly recommend this apartment and will book again. It’s ideally situated for easy access to supermarkets, various pubs and restaurants as well as local attractions. Obviously Alnwick castle is close by but in around half an hour, you can be on Holy island or at Bamburgh castle (both a must visit). We’ve read previous comments regarding tight parking but if you take your time, it really isn’t a problem.

  • "Lavenna is a lovely property, immaculately clean & comfortable with very good attention to detail."

    The welcome pack was a nice touch & filled with essentials to get us started also chocolates & prosecco which while totally unnecessary very very appreciated. Everything had been thought of even kids cutlery & the plug in nightlights on the stairways. The only downside is the parking which is very tight. There were 6 vehicles in the small parking area while we were there so a fair bit of shunting was required to get in & out of our allocated space, there is free parking however on the opposite side of the street although very busy. I understand nothing can be done regarding the parking due to the nature of Alnwick Town with many properties accessed through archways off main streets. Despite the parking we had a great stay & would come back to this property.

  • "Wow! What an amazing place."

    We had a lovely four nights at Lavenna and would not hesitate to book again. The apartment is located right near the town centre - walking distance to all of Alnwick's amenities and attractions. The flat itself was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. It really was like a home from home - with everything you could think of provided (cutlery, crockery, cling film, sharp knives, oven trays, plenty of towels).

The property

Centrally located in Alnwick, a market town in Northumberland is Lavenna, a well-positioned, duplex apartment.

Resting over the first and second floors, Lavenna offers far-reaching views over the town, just paces away from a hub of eateries and shops, whilst complete with flexible sleeping arrangements, a contemporary interior, and an off-road parking space for one car; the apartment invites five guests and one furry companion, ideal for a family break to the coast.

Park up and unload your belongings, ascending the internal stairs, before reaching the open-plan living space, complete with a sleek kitchen, a dedicated dining area, a plush corner sofa, and a Smart TV for entertainment; prepare meals with a range of state-of-the-art appliances, before unwinding with the gas fire on in the backdrop.

As sleep calls, select between three well-appointed bedrooms, all with Smart TVs; you'll find a single on the first floor, followed by two king-size bedrooms to the second floor.

Awaken to a refreshing shower or a soak in the bath, preparing for your day in the contemporary second-floor bathroom, before grabbing your belongings and heading for the town.

Stock up on the essentials at one of the many supermarkets and convenience stores in the area, or if you'd prefer to dine out, select from a host of eateries upon your doorstep, including Hardys Bistro, The Market Tavern, Steakhouse and Lodge, and The Beef Club @ The Plough.

For attractions, start off locally with a tour of the Bailiffgate Museum, enjoy a stroll through Hulne Park, or discover the pretty blooms of The Alnwick Garden and the newly opened Lilidorei, before heading for the shoreline, with a range of beauty spots to explore, including the Druridge Bay Country Park, the Hauxley Wildlife Discovery Centre, and East Chevington Bay Beach.

Northumberland Zoo is also within reach, a firm family favourite, whilst travelling north will bring you to Bamburgh, its imposing castle and sweeping beachfront, before following the Northumberland Coast AONB walking trail for further sea glimpses.

Experience all of this, and more, at Lavenna.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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; for even more excitement, the enchanted world of Lilidorei is also available at Alnwick Gardens, offering seasonal events and plenty of fun for little ones of your group. 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.
