On the Northumberland coast, the medieval town of Alnwick is surrounded by captivating heritage sites and inspiring natural beauty. Our Alnwick holiday cottages put you at the heart of those landscapes, in exquisitely-furnished properties handpicked by Crabtree & Crabtree for the comfort and luxury that they provide and for the access they offer to the region's best attractions.
Alnwick is steeped in history but perhaps its most famous landmark is Alnwick Castle which dates back to the 11th century. The castle is a living attraction: home to the current Duke and Duchess of Northumberland, it was used as a location in the Harry Potter film series and now hosts regular historic activities and events for the whole family. Only a short distance from the castle is Alnwick Garden: maintained by the Duchess, the garden is packed with spectacular horticultural creations including the famous Grand Cascade waterfall.
In Alnwick town itself, visitors stroll cobbled streets, browse fishing shops and bookstores and explore museums and galleries like the Bailiffgate, the House of Hardy and the Bakehouse. Visit Alnwick at the right time and you might catch one of its special annual events, which include the ceremonial Shrove Tuesday football match known as 'The Scoring of the Hales' and the Castle Tournament, a thrilling showcase of medieval jousting.
Only a short distance from Alnwick, the colourful village of Alnmouth is a chance to venture deeper into Northumberland’s traditional coastal culture. The village is surrounded by Northumberland’s Area of Outstanding Beauty which holds countless breath taking sights and hiking opportunities, along with unforgettable views of the Heritage Coast.
