Located a short journey from Northumberland's spellbinding Heritage Coast, Alnwick is a bustling market town that's ideally suited for cottage stays. Accommodation in the town will place you within easy reach of Norman castles, elegant manor houses, dune-backed beaches, and the unique magic of Lindisfarne - one of the centres of ancient Britain.
When you stay in Alnwick holiday cottages, the town itself is a star attraction. Built around a 12th century castle which has been adapted to host Harry Potter-themed events, Alnwick is a stately town with peaceful squares, craft shops, and farmers markets for visitors to enjoy. See the quirky Poison Garden and the 42 acre castle gardens, learn about local history at Bailiffgate Museum or venture further afield to standouts like Bamburgh Castle, Howick Hall and Brizlee Tower. History and family fun combine to make Alnwick accommodation instantly appealing.
Vacations at Alnwick holiday cottages can be as active or relaxed as you like. If you want to expend some calories, cycling routes head into the Northumberland countryside. On the coast, beaches like Beadnell Bay are ideal for surfers, while you can join coasteering expeditions around the rocks at Howick. There are climbing locations on Alnwick Moors, while you can rent kayaks and canoes on the River Coquet for laid-back explorations. And of course, there's no shortage of beach space to sunbathe and let the world pass by.
Renting holiday cottages in Alnwick allows you to make the most of the beautiful landscape, local attractions, and a host of outdoor activities. Store wetsuits and swimming costumes as you tour the town, lie back on your own sofa with a guide book to get to know the area's history, and tuck kids away in the evening before toasting the day with a glass of locally brewed beer in a private garden. Ensure easy parking, give everyone their own space to unwind, and experience an Alnwick adventure in comfort with the perfect self-catering accommodation.
