“Gorgeous central cottage”

Lovely immaculate very well equipped cottage. In really good central position in Alnwick. Has absolutely everything you could need, even down to dog bowls biscuits and poor bags. The only two things I would have liked different were a bigger garden and a summer duvet on the bed, apart from that it was gorgeous. Even had Prosecco and biscuits on arrival, Thank you for a lovely stay

Just stayed at this lovely property last weekend. The property was beautiful and very well equipped. Just a stones throw from the town Centre. Thank you for the lovely biscuits and the bottle of Prosseco

“First class holiday rental”
Reviewed 24 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This is a lovely, quirky stone double fronted town house. It was great to be welcomed by a bottle of fizz and biscuits, such a nice touch. The house Ian's obviously been renovated recently with tasteful decor and furniture/artwork I keeping with the local area. The bathroom is spacious with a luxurious roll top bath and double shower. We enjoyed making a real fire in the evening when it got chilly. It is just a few minutes walk into Alnwick centre and to Morrisons for provisions. We had fish and chips one night from Carlos fish and chip shop - highly recommended/ big portions. There is a pub just up the street but we were so cosy in the evening we didn't want to venture out.
Alnwick castle is a few minutes walk away as are the gardens, both well worth a visit. The beach at Alnmouth is beautiful. All in all we had a great time and would recommend this house.
