The presentation and quality of the accommodation is of a very high standard. You’ve the best of both worlds here, an ancient market town location with a low maintenance stylish home that fits effortlessly into the period properties that surround it.

A great selection of eclectic indie shops and traditional pubs, the town also has several supermarkets as well as markets each Friday and Saturday and a Farmers market on the last Friday in the month, a Continental market over May bank holiday and Christmas markets in December. There are also regular festivals ranging from food to international music, something for everyone.

Alnwick is also home to one of the largest second-hand bookshops, Barter Books which also has a cafe and an open fire. There is a leisure complex with swimming pool. For food there is a good selection of traditional pubs and nice restaurants and The Playhouse, the town theatre and cinema with an all year round programme of touring productions, local rep, school and adult amateur theatre and weekly cinema screenings.
Beyond the town lies the iconic Northumberland Coast, miles of unspoilt sandy beaches, dotted with ancient castles and breathtaking scenery.
