“Puddleduck Perfection!”
Reviewed 2 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

This cottage was perfect in every way. It is right in the centre of Alnwick, walking distance to everywhere - The Castle, The Alnwick Garden, Barter Books, shops, restaurants, museums. There is no parking at the cottage but you can load/unload at the door and then a free long-stay car park is at the top of the street, 2 minutes walk away - very convenient. The cottage is beautiful; spotlessly clean, nicely furnished, cosy and comfortable, extremely well-equipped, warm and just the right size for two people. A lovely 'welcome' basket awaited us with wine, orange juice and biscuits and there was milk in the fridge and lovely fresh roses on the hearth. A real home-from-home. I very much hope we'll have the chance to stay there again.

“Lovely cottage, great location”
Reviewed 2 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This cottage is ideally situated for visiting Alnwick's attractions and eateries - all just a short walk away. It is also easy to get in and out of Alnwick to visit further afield.
The cottage was well equipped and comfortable, and we would stay again if in the area.
Although no allocated parking comes with the cottage, there is plenty of free parking just a minute or two away, and a parking disc is provided for use in the local car parks.

“Wonderful location,”
Reviewed 23 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This cottage is the best equipped self catering cottage I have ever had the pleasure to stay in. The location is perfect for Alnwick (great pubs, shops and restaurants), Alnwick Castle and Gardens (you'll need a day for each) and Barter Books (best second-hand bookshop ever) - all a short walking distance. Plus you're just a few minutes' drive from the A1 which gives you easy access to Lindisfarne, Bamburgh Castle, Alnmouth, Craster, Seahouses, Newcastle, Durham and the fabulous open air museum, Beamish. The Treehouse restaurant at Alnwick is truly lovely but you absolutely must book weeks in advance.

Despite visiting in May (early summer!) the log burner was extremely welcome.

“Perfect cottage in Alnwick”
Reviewed 4 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We really enjoyed our stay in this cottage. There was plenty of room and the cottage is very well equipped with everything we needed. The cottage is finished to a very high standard and it was very clean. The welcome basket with juice, wine, biscuits and milk was a very nice touch. Communication with Janet was always pleasant and timely. There isn't parking available right outside the cottage, but we were easily able to find parking just up the street that was free. The cottage is in a perfect location for walking around Alnwick, close to everything. I would definitely stay here again!

“Delightful cottage close to a great pub.”
Reviewed 27 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Great location and delighted with all the amenities in the cottage, everything you need for a really comfortable stay. Especially appreciated the wood burning stove on the cold nights.
Will definitely return.
