What Propology love about 5 Beaconsfield Terrace and Alnwick:

There’s nothing quite like a Victorian Town House with a good balance of original period features and contemporary touches. This home has in our opinion the perfect balance. There’s space, light and views to enjoy along with cosy fires and luxury bathrooms. We love the second floor attic room with its spacious and light vibe to enjoy one of the best views in town. The westerly facing rear patio garden is a little oasis of peace and seclusion, quite a rarity in the middle of a town.

Alnwick is a true market town with a lovely market square and meandering cobbled streets steeped in culture and history. There is so much to do without even venturing out of the town. 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 Castle and Gardens are close by as is the incredible Tree House restaurant. Alnwick is also home to one of the largest second-hand bookshops, Barter Books which also has a cafe and an open fire. There’s also a leisure complex with swimming pool and good schooling at all levels. 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. Transport links to and from Alnwick are very good  and available via the A1 trunk road, north to Berwick and Scotland and south to Morpeth and Newcastle, the main line East Coast rail service is nearby in Alnmouth with direct and regular services to Newcastle, London and Edinburgh. Alnwick is the perfect location for those looking for a town setting, yet within easy access to all this stunning county has to offer.
