Location

Situated in the heart of ‘Percy Country’ the property enjoys a rural location but sits just four miles from the medieval market town of Alnwick where you will find an excellent range of amenities and an eclectic mix of charming specialist shops. Wander the cobbled streets and gift shops around the marketplace, or stop-off at one of the many quaint cafes across the area, including Bari Tea based in the Castle Quarter for a very lovely lunch or a decadent afternoon cream tea! While there, seek out Barter Books - ‘a book heaven’ with thousands of paperbacks, hardbacks and collector’s editions based in a beautiful former railway station, or pop into the super Bakehouse Gallery showcasing the work of local artists and designers.

For provisions, you will find plenty of choice - try award-winning Turnbull’s for fine food and quality meats; The Alnwick Deli for delicious local produce, cheeses, hampers and gifts; or the Alnwick Bakery for home-baked breads, pies and pastries. There is a market every Saturday, a farmer’s market on the last Friday of every month, and a large supermarket nearby for all your holiday essentials.

Just a five minute walk from Rennington House, The Horseshoes Inn is a cosy pub, featured in the Good Beer Guide, with a great reputation for friendly service, an excellent local menu and a fine selection of real ales; or for a dining experience with a difference, the Treehouse Restaurant at Alnwick Gardens is not to be missed. Set high in the treetops, it is a magical spot to spend an evening, featuring local fish and seafood, meats from Northumberland’s farmlands, as well as other regional specialities all within a lovely ambient setting. Alternatively head to the pretty fishing village of Craster (4.5 miles) to sample the legendary oak smoked kippers from L Robson & Sons; or the Jolly Fisherman pub, famous for its crab sandwiches and mussels.

The house is conveniently placed for access to the main A1, and there is a direct and regular rail link to Newcastle from Alnwick for a city day out.

Reviews

"The house is a true delight and beautifully restored and presented. The welcome gift was a lovely touch on arrival. The kids especially loved the games room."

Malone family

"We had a fabulous weekend at Rennington House. This is a true family house and the 4 children all had a great time in the superbly safe garden, playing football and rounders and enjoying the swing on the magnificent tree - the trampoline in the barn and the play area in the kitchen were also very popular. We had dinner catered on one night and the food was superb. The house is beautifully furnished and was a great setting for our family celebration."

Carroll family

"We had a very enjoyable weekend at Rennington House. Particular thanks to the housekeeper for her welcome and briefing on arrival. The chocolate chip cookies in the welcome pack did not last long with five children in the party, and the bread went down fast too!"

Scott family

"We had a great weekend overall, and Rennington House was perfect for our requirements, an ideal place to stay, comfortable, and well appointed. The housekeeper was very welcoming, and helped us settle in quickly, and looked after us well."

Johnson family

"We really enjoyed our stay at Rennington - it was real treat staying in such spacious, comfortable surroundings and we all loved our visit."

Perry family

"We really enjoyed our stay at Rennington House very much indeed. It is a beautiful house and perfectly set up for us in so many ways. The reception rooms, kitchen and bedrooms are lovely. The colour of the master bedroom with the rising sun coming through the curtains is beautiful!"

O'Rourke family

"We found the accommodation exceptional. The little personal touches such as cakes, scones, fresh milk and the quiche made the welcome feel so much more personal."

Sutcliffe family

"Our family had a lovely stay at Rennington House. We very much enjoyed the 'welcome' food and everything about the house, which was incredibly warm and comfortable for such a large building. It was great that all the little things like loo rolls, soap and washing-up liquid were supplied when we first arrived. We spent quite a lot of time in the kitchen because of the Aga and availability of food and hot drinks! The house was easy to find and get in to thanks to Crabtree & Crabtree instructions. Thank you so much for giving us a delightful and memorable stay in this beautiful part of the country."

Horswell family

"We had the most amazing weekend at Rennington House for my husbands surprise 30th Birthday! We could not fault the house at all! It is perfect for families and we all felt our children were safe in the grounds. A fabulous sunny birthday weekend away."

Cummings family

"We had a wonderful week at Rennington House. It is so roomy and well equipped for a large group. Once again we would recommend Crabtree & Crabtree to all our friends for your efficient booking and organisation. Thank you."
