    Plenty of pubs and restaurants in Alnwick to eat in. Nurses Cottage is very comfortable and has everything you need! Set in a lovely part of town. Spending Christmas here the cottage decorated with the lovely decorations was so cosy. We will look forward to also staying in this cottage at a different time of year. Thank you.

    This is our 2nd stay at the property, lovely comfy, clean, peaceful and love to explore the area. Spent many hours on the coast enjoying the beautiful scenery - great for walking, photography and bird watching. Would recommend a visit to; Embleton Bay, Holy Island, Northumberlandia, Bamburgh, Seahouses (fish & chips).

  • "Lovely week in Nurse's Cottage."

    Very comfortable - cosy with everything you could need. Ideal base for exploring Northumberland. Bamburgh castle, Billy Shiels Boat Trip. Craster walk around Dunstanburgh castle all superb. Alnwick castle well worth a visit but maybe leave gardens until spring/ summer for full effect. Barter Books also intriguing on a wet day. All in all a great trip.

    Perfect location for Seahouses, Bamburgh, Amble and of course Alnwick itself. I lived here for 3 years in the 70s and it's lovely to see it thriving with lots of cafes, bars and shops to support the star of the town - the castle. Thank you

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Nurses Cottage."

    It is a lovely place in itself and it is nicely situated in relation to all that Alnwick has to offer. We are extremely happy with our choice and would not hesitate to choose to return to Nurses Cottage. One minor point which the owners might be interested in hearing is that we had to fashion a Heath Robinson style screen out of brown parcel paper ( bought at Wilkos) to manoeuvre into the main bedroom roof light in order to save us from being woken at the crack of dawn by the otherwise unimpeded bright daylight, which we did experience on the first morning. Some sort of blind would be good I reckon.

    Hi Kevin. Thanks very much for your feedback. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at nurses cottage. Your point about the bedroom roof windows has been noted. We have now replaced the windows in both bedrooms, blinds and windows can be electronically operated. Property Owner

    Hi Chris. Thanks very much for the feedback. Plans are already in place to replace the windows to electrically operated ones and with electrically operated blinds. Work will be completed in November this year. Property Owner

    It was ideal for us. I found the mattress on the single bed I used slightly uncomfortable. My friend found she slipped down the settee when she sat there reading or watching TV. These are minor compared with the joys of staying in Nurses Cottage.

    Perfect location to access so many beautiful places within short driving distance. Alnwick castle and Alnwick gardens on the doorstep, then only minutes away from beautiful coast line, including beach near Warkworth Castle, Embleton Bay near to Dunstan burgh Castle, Bamburgh Castle. We got a train to Edinburgh for the day from Alnmouth train station where parking was free. So many things to see and do on the doorstep. Just needed more than a week to fit everything in. An ideal excuse though for a return visit! Thankyou for the memorable stay.

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.
