“like home from home”
Reviewed 4 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

"Shy Bairns on the Corner" is conveniently located about 5 minutes by foot from the centre of the town and attractions such as Alnwick Gardens; Alnwick Castle is at the other end of the street! The town itself is convenient for the many attractions of Northumberland: the wonderful beaches, stunning castles, wild moors and the beautiful Cheviot Hills. The house is bright and airy, well laid out, clean and very comfortable, and well-equipped. And if there is some issue, the owners act immediately to sort it out, and in a friendly manner. We hope to be back!

“Suited all our needs.”
Reviewed 17 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Excellent position,on the edge of town but only 5minutes walk to Centre. Parking easy on road outside ..only 2mins from the superb castle.
All rooms a good size and comfortable .
A few items missing from kitchen itinerary.
The throws on the living room sofas were a bit grubby.
Would visit again though.
Excellent meals at The Tree House,The Plough ,which has a nice sunny terrace for evening drink,and Market Tavern.
Cragside worth a visit and the drive across beautiful high moors worth it anyway.
Rolls etc from local bakery opposite Co.op are full to bursting , freshly made and cheap.

“Lovely house in a perfect location”
Reviewed 6 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We were a group of 4 friends who stayed for a weekend. The house is comfortable, clean, spacious and well equipped. Found a bottle of wine & biscuits to welcome us on arrival. There is lots of information provided about the town and the surroundings. There is a small courtyard to sit out in if lucky with the weather. Access to the property is easy and had no problem parking on the road, right beside the property.
The location is perfect, right on the edge of the town with lots of bars and restaurants within a five minute walk.
Alnwick itself is a lovely town with a castle, lots of friendly pubs and restaurants. It's a great location to explore Northumbria. You don't need a car as Alnwick has a good bus service to the surrounding towns.
I would recommend this property to anyone whether a family or group of friends.
