Holiday Rental House
A beautiful very recently renovated cottage in the 'old town' of Alnwick. 3 bedrooms, Kitchen, Lounge with feature fireplace - gas for instant heat. Dining room with log burner, fireside seats and dining table. Great features and great comfort. A gorgeous cottage, home from home, with a luxurious double shower and claw foot bath for those chill out evenings. 3 miles away from Alnmouth beach, and 3 miles away from the countryside for those wanting views, spectacular drives and a good walk. WiFi available for those who want it - but no obligation if you want an IT free visit! Lots to do - biking, horse riding, tennis courts around the corner, beaches and golf courses nearby. Plenty of fresh air, star gazing, and wine make for a great relaxing break. If you want a peaceful restful time - with...A beautiful very recently renovated cottage in the 'old town' of Alnwick. 3 bedrooms, Kitchen, Lounge with feature fireplace - gas for instant heat.

Plenty of fresh air, star gazing, and wine make for a great relaxing break. If you want a peaceful restful time - with lots going on nearby - great places to eat that you can walk to, so no taxis required. Lots of local and international markets and food fairs in the square. Coffee shops and cafe's a plenty including one that accommodates those with Gluten and lactose allergies (Fab!), and of course Costa A stone throw away from the infamous 'Barter books' in old Alnwick station, and a short walk to Alnwick Castle, gardens and the Tree house. Morpeth is a short drive away with some great shops. Easy access to trains and buses to Newcastle and Edinburgh Parking - this is on the street opposite the house. Generally fine for parking 1 or 2 cars, and parking higher up the road during peak dates (but never far from the house) Dogs welcome. Travel cot available upon request. For weekly bookings - change over on Fridays. Short breaks are flexible - but min 3 nights. More

Fantastic location, close to local amenities. Excellent for attractions, local restaurants and takeaways and ideally suited to the beautiful scenery a little further afield too National Trust Craggside was our favourite visit and the dogs loved it too!
