Alnwick, Northumberland, England
Dear Holiday Maker

Welcome to 2 Percy Cottages, our Northumberland home that we bought from the Duke of Northumberland in 2013. If you want a fantastic 3 bedroom, Georgian, self-catering holiday let and perfect home away from home for couples, families and dog lovers this is it.

It's only a one minute walk from Alnwick Castle & Gardens, Alnwick town centre and Hulne Park's 3,000 acres of woodland. The fabulous beaches of Bamburgh and Low Newton, boat trips to the Farne Islands, Lindisfarne and the totally unique Chillingham Castle are only short drives away.

As you'll see from our reviews, this is not just a business for us, it's our second home so we've included home comforts not often found in a self-catering holiday let. These include super comfy furniture (go ahead and tuck your feet under), Wifi, a separate...

We have 2 small dogs, so have always booked dog friendly cottages on our regular trips to Northumberland. This was the most dog friendly cottage we have ever booked - they had everything, even poo bags! Yet the property was spotless & would have been no problem for anyone who does not have dogs. A real bonus was that the...

Management response:

Hi - thank you for the lovely review - we are indeed dog owners and lovers so know what is important in that respect. For anyone reading this review I'd ask that they look at previous reviews during peak season as I've never had a single guest experience parking issues - and quite a few come with 2 cars. I'm...

We rented this property with our two teenage kids over Christmas. it was perfect in every way, from the little details like Christmas decorations, welcome basket etc. the location was perfect so easy to stroll into the lovely town of Alnwick and then such a comfortable home from home place to stay.

Management response:

Thank you Lesley, I'm so glad you all enjoyed your Christmas in the UK - especially as if I remember rightly it was the first for the kids here. You are welcome back anytime. All the best. Yvonne

About the neighbourhood
Alnwick is a beautiful, historic town and was recently named the best town to live in Britain (2013). Alnwick has become one of the country's top tourist destinations with its spectacular gardens, one of the largest treehouses in Europe and Alnwick Castle which was featured in the Harry Potter films. Alnwick is roughly half way between Berwick and Newcastle, making a great base from which to explore the coastline and imposing castles of Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh and the Lindisfarne Priory on Holy Island. Just a short drive away is Seahouses where visitors can take boats to the Farne Islands a favourite site for bird watchers. My favourite new recommendation is Chillingham Castle - privately owned, totally unique & haunted!
