The property is in a pleasant part of this historic market town, with views of a park at the front, and only 150 yards from the famous Alnwick Castle. A short walk gets you into town where there are several good restaurants, pubs, bistros, cafes and coffee shops, along with supermarkets and shops for basic needs. Car parking is on the road, opposite the house on both sides, and immediately outside the house on the right hand side.There is generally no problem getting parked next to the cottage for 1 or 2 cars, although at busy times it can mean parking a little further up the road. A short drive to the outskirts of town finds the local leisure centre with swimming pool. In the same area you will find a large Sainsbury`s Supermarket. Alnwick Castle is a very imposing and historic building where scenes from the Harry Potter films were taken and tour facilities are available. Also the castle gardens are now internationally famous and well worth a visit as is the Treehouse Bistro/Restaurant in the castle grounds. The glorious Northumberland coastline can be reached easily starting with the beautiful town of Alnmouth four miles away. The other star visits are Bamburgh, Seahouses, Beadnel, Craster, Low Newton and Lindisfarne are also within easy reach. Going inland the marvellous Cragside Estate built by Lord Armstrong and now managed by the National Trust is a must, and the nearby picturesque village of Rothbury is also recommended. If you like shopping Newcastle upon Tyne is 30 miles South which is a shopaholics paradise! Morpeth the County Town of Northumberland is 18 miles from Alnwick with some very interesting shops and restaurants. With Edinburgh being 90 miles away, or an hour on the train. A haven for families, old and young ( and of course including the dogs!), for a relaxing break, with much to do and see for those looking for a more active break. The local walks whether it is along the coast or inland are plentiful with great scenery. The beaches are clean and idyllic - great for a paddle, walk or a full blown swim and sunbathing ( weather depending!). Great for keen golfers - with a number of local courses ready to be tried, along the coast. Railway enthusiasts will find interesting finds at the ever growing Alnmouth and Alnwick new local preserved railway If you are interested in staying at Shy Bairns on the Corner for a short break, please contact Debbie for further details of availability and prices for the dates you are seeking to spend your holiday in glorious Northumberland. If you are considering a last minute break please drop us a line - there may well be last minute deals for those 'shy bairns' out there. We look forward to sharing a haven of relaxation with you.

Thank you for the feedback sorry you felt the cold though as the boiler is ordinarily very good, relatively new and regularly serviced, that together with the gas fire and many radiators are normally very effective

Great location just a few minutes from Alnwick castle. Very easy access to wider attractions. Cottage itself very homely and well equipped base for exploring the wider area. No problems with parking opposite. Great information from owners prior to arrival.
