    “Hi Jo, we had a lovely stay at Lisburn street, it was a great location for Alnwick.”

    The beds were comfy and we loved the soft bed linen. The garden is a lovely sun trap on an afternoon. We could always get parked on the street, which was super. We loved the fire in the lounge, my daughter enjoyed picking a colour each evening. Thank you very much for the lovely treats that you left us, they were very much appreciated and a really nice touch. There was a few things that I wanted to note that future guests might appreciate- the kitchen would benefit from a few extra things- ...

    The beds were comfy and we loved the soft bed linen. The garden is a lovely sun trap on an afternoon. We could always get parked on the street, which was super. We loved the fire in the lounge, my daughter enjoyed picking a colour each evening. Thank you very much for the lovely treats that you left us, they were very much appreciated and a really nice touch. There was a few things that I wanted to note that future guests might appreciate- the kitchen would benefit from a few extra things- additional oven trays, mixing or serving bowl, more teaspoons, trivet to put hot things on. Perhaps a DVD player in the lounge, I know that's old school now, but we bought some DVDs from one of the charity shops but couldn't watch them. We found the oven hard to use as there was no user instructions and it seemed to either under cook food or cremate it. The front door is really hard to use, my mum has a few health issues so she couldn't open it or close it by herself. Thank you again, we enjoyed our stay very much.

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.
