    “Lovely cottage.”

    Only problem was the Wi-Fi — which meant we couldn’t watch films — but we read instead (and Alnwick has some great bookshops). Particularly enjoyed the garden.

    Huge apologies regarding the brake down on the router. This was quickly replaced by the provider as soon as we were made aware of the problem. We have managed to updated our Broadband as soon as Fibre arrived into the village which has made a huge difference. We are so happy that you all enjoyed the cottage. It’s is a beautiful 200 year old building which is very quirky but bags of fun. We absolutely love the cottage & enjoy nothing more than watching the wildlife pass us by along the river Aln is truly a real treat. Property Owner

About the location

WHITTINGHAM

Alnwick 7 miles; Morpeth 21 miles.

The pretty village of Whittingham is idyllically located astride the delightful River Aln, nestling between Northumbria's Heritage coastline and its stunning National Parkland, just 7 miles west of Alnwick. The village boasts a lovely church on one bank of the river and the pele tower on the other, both of which were altered in the Gothic style last century. Great walks and enchanting riverside views are also available. Alnwick Castle, home to the Duke of Northumberland, and its beautiful gardens are nearby, whilst Alnwick itself boasts a good selection of shops, pubs and places to eat whilst being within easy driving distance of the varying boat trips available to the famous Farne Islands and the miles of golden sandy beaches lining the coast. An excellent location from which to explore the delights of Northumberland and beyond.
