In a nutshell: Quiet location in centre of Alnwick, pet friendly, king size bed. Our featured Northumberland cottages include this property in the heart of Alnwick, one of the finest market towns in the north of England. Alnwick Castle is one of the most stunning fortified buildings in Europe and one of the largest inhabited castles in England. Not surprisingly it is known as The Windsor of the North. The castle has dominated the town since medieval times and you may recognise it from its recent starring role as Hogwarts in the Harry Potter series of films. Beyond the castle is the fabulous Alnwick Garden which is a joy not just for keen gardeners but also families and warrants a full day's visit itself.
