    “8 of us stayed at the old newsagents from Thursday evening to Sunday morning.”

    What a fantastic place to stop whilst exploring all Alnwick and Northumberland has to offer. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay right in the heart of Alnwick but a beautiful, spacious house (the house is like a Tardis) I would highly recommend staying at the old newsagents and would love to come back to stay here and hopefully become an annually trip up to Alnwick/Northumberland. Plenty of pubs and restaurants to hand, if you love a curry, you must visit Mumbai ...

Plenty of pubs and restaurants to hand, if you love a curry, you must visit Mumbai probably the best Indians we have ever ate.

About the location

ALNWICK

Alnmouth 4 miles; Bamburgh 15 miles; Rothbury 10 miles.

The attractive and historic market town of Alnwick is dominated by Alnwick Castle, home to the Duke of Northumberland. The Castle Gardens, opened in 2002, are home to Europe's largest cascading water feature, a fabulous (and enormous) treehouse, a delightful rose garden and a beautiful, walled ornamental garden, which will delight novice and experienced gardeners alike. The castle is also famous as the setting for Hogwarts School featured in the Harry Potter films! The town's narrow streets have seen little change since the days when the London to Edinburgh stage coach passed through and the Market Place, with its stone cross, is still the central feature and the ideal venue for the weekly Saturday market. Alnwick offers a good selection of shops, pubs and places to eat and there is plenty to see and do, with miles of golden sandy beaches, numerous castles and boat trips to the famous Farne Islands all available nearby. Altogether a superb location for exploring Northumberland and its stunning Heritage Coastline.
