    “The only drawback with this property is the steep and narrow staircase but that is more than compensated for by everything else from the lovely welcome hamper, the very useful and comprehensive information pack and smart TVs in every room to the very high standard of all the facilities and appliances.”

    This property is also perfectly located right in the centre of Alnwick; in walking distance of many fine pubs and restaurants and the Alnwick Playhouse. Alnwick castle can be seen from the window. There is a Morrisons supermarket just over the road and a Lidl very close by. Topped of by the clever and imaginative "Harry Potter" themed decor; what's not to like? (Apart from the stairs)

Benefit from a 2-hour permit to park up and unload your belongings, before heading to a nearby, free public car park for the remainder of your stay. Travel on foot and ascend the internal stairs, reaching the second floor, and be welcomed by a feature wall and tourist information right in the hallway. Enter through the hallway to the spacious living/dining room of the apartment, complete with dining for six, plush sofas, and a Smart TV for entertainment, before heading into the fully equipped, sleek kitchen, offering the perfect space to rustle up tasty meals .As the night unfolds, select between three well-appointed Harry Potter inspired bedrooms, all complete with Smart TVs and storage, including a double, a super-king-size (zip/link) and on the third floor a king-size (zip/link), with space to unwind and enjoy views over the Town.

A must-visit (check opening times) is Alnwick castle. Alnwick Castle has always been a magical place and starred as the magical Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secret, but few people know the true secrets hidden inside its stones. This summer The Wizard Earl returns to his castle and opens the doors of the Alnwick School of Magic. Join him in our thrilling family show as good battles evil. A truly enchanting family show. Also enjoy strolls around the pretty grounds of The Alnwick Garden, tour the Bailiffgate Museum, or cross over the Lion Bridge to enjoy vistas of River Aln and its picturesque landscape.

Round off your trip in Bamburgh, where you can practise your swing at the local golf club, hike up to Bamburgh Castle, or stroll along the shoreline. Experience a magical getaway at The Wizard's Loft.

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.
