This cottage surpassed our expectations. We had rented it so our family could attend a family wedding at Alnwick Gardens in early April and have somewhere close by so we could retreat and rest between the wedding and the evening event. The sun shone all weekend and not only was it an easy 10 minute walk to the Gardens, we had Sunday breakfast outside in the beautiful little courtyard – all in April!
The photos don’t do the cottage justice. It is beautifully decorated, very well equipped and spotlessly clean and the owner couldn’t have been more helpful about our arrival plans and suggestions of what else we could do in Alnwick. We also really liked the welcome bottle of wine and chocolates, very much appreciated after our Friday evening travels.
Two (beautifully decorated) bathrooms with two bedrooms was a great help, not only keeping the teenagers away from the adults but it also facilitated the ladies getting easily made-up for the wedding!
We will definitely be back, next time to explore the lovely town and surrounding area and we really wanted to try the wood burning stove but it was too warm to warrant it.
