Alnwick, Northumberland, England
Arguably one of the best self-catering holiday cottage properties in Alnwick, Castle Retreat provides the very best in luxurious accommodation and certainly has the wow factor! Situated on the top (second) floor of a Grade 2 listed townhouse, it is away from the hustle and bustle of the town, yet within easy reach of everything Alnwick has to offer.

This romantic retreat is perfect for two and ideally placed for exploring the town, the castle and, indeed, the whole of Northumberland. Just a few minutes' walk into the centre of town, everything is on the doorstep, yet because it is not on the main streets, the apartment is very quiet and peaceful.

This one-bedroom luxury apartment, with a spacious lounge / diner and bedroom, is flooded with natural light and is extremely comfortable. Completely and sympathetically refurbished to the...

About the neighbourhood
As well as having its own attractions - Alnwick Castle ('Hogwarts') and Gardens and Barter Books being the most famous - Alnwick is a perfect central hub for exploring Northumberland. Bamburgh Castle, Cragside House and Gardens, Dunstanburgh Castle, Hadrian’s Wall, Northumberland Heritage Coast and Northumberland National Park are all easily accessible by car. The nearby Northumberland Coast AONB has some of the most unspoilt beaches in the country.
Getting around
Alnmouth is well served by buses up the coast via Craster, Newton-by-the-Sea, Seahouses and Bamburgh, making day trips and walks in the Northumberland Coast AONB very convenient. There are frequent buses to the East Coast main line rail station at Alnmouth, from which you can get trains to Newcastle, Edinburgh, etc. There are also express buses to Newcastle. However, most visitors will prefer the convenience of a car allowing trips inland to the Northumberland National Park, Cragside, Kielder Water, Hadrian's Wall and Newcastle (just under 45 minutes away).
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Newcastle International Airport (NCL): 55.0 km
Railway: Alnmouth: 7.0 km
Ferry: North Shields (Port of Tyne): 60.0 km
Alnwick is well served by buses and trains (connecting bus from Alnmouth rail station on the East Coast main line) but many visitors will prefer the convenience of a car. We provide a visitor parking permit which can be used on Bailiffgate, usually within 20-30m of the property.

Castle Retreat is situated right next to the main entrance to Alnwick Castle at the junction of Bailiffgate and Narrowgate, around 300m north of the town centre.
